Rayburn's Victory Selection by house Democrats yesterday of William B, Bankheacl of Alabama as speaker and Sam Rayburn of Texas as inajori'tj^ Jcadcr means that President Roosevelt's program for the new congress \vill encounter no obstacles at {he hands of the leadeiship of cither house. Bankhead mid Hnyburn, besides being loyal administration men, are thorough going New Deiilcrs. And if Vice-presidciil Jolni^ N. Garner and Senate Majority Leader Joe T. Robinson are of a somewhat more conservative stripe tlian the house leaders, certainly it has been amply dein- , on'strated ,lhat they are second to none in their loyalty to the president. House Democrats were unanimous T ' in their choice of Bankhodd for reelection to Die spcakership. Rayburn won the majority leadership by a fairly close divJsion, 18*1 to 127. It is probably fair to say that he owes his election to the fact that theie was no. question of whore he stands .with respect to MivRoosevelt and the administration piogram. For his chief opponent, John J. O'Connor of New'York, by virtue of his senioiity • and the' fact that, with u .southern Mnaifj the choice for speaker it would have been the natural thing to choose JUiQiiherner for the party leadership, v,as in many v,ays the logical selection for the place But the loyalty to the administration of O'Connor, no _ , New Dealer, was in question, and that explains Ins defeat. A friendly, congressional; leadership can do much'to smooth the way for whatever, program the president may submit. It may be worth 'nothing, however, 4f that O'Connor's dofeiatl leaves him in a' position to exercise an obstructive influence. He is chairman of the most powerful house committee—that on rules— and if lie feels any bitterness at^ his defeat for the . majority leadership he will have ample opportunity to make things difficult for whomever he blames for his failure to win the post. ) BLVTHHVILLE, ,(ARK,)' COUlUfcR NEWS ... Speeding Up the Law Washington dispatches make it seem very doubtful that Congress will tako any action to limit the U. S. Supreme Court's right bypass on federal legis- • lation." But it is reported that much ^sentiment is dc\eloping n , favor of a OUT OUR WAY ~~~ law that would increase the Supremo Court's work on constitutional cases, instead of diminishing it, What is being proposed, in fact, is ii law to confine constitutional issues to the supreme court, thus cutting out all lower court delays. As things arc now, if you wish to test a law's constitutionality, you lile suit in the lower court. In a year or BO, you get a decision. This, in all likelihood, is cairicd to_the court of appeals, After another six months or more, that court hands down its decision. That, in turn, is carried along to the supreme couit, which has the final say. Veiy, very raiely does the ruling of a lower court as to a law's constitutionality stand by itself, So there is good sense in the suggestion that all such cases be confined to the supreme court from the start. Decision on weighty constitutional ibsqcs should be much speedier under such system. 'i'UESbAY, JANUARY 5, 'i Poor Scieniisi To get away from the dull problems of the day, you might devote a minute or tywo to a consideration of the problems of the scientist. Dr. Karl T. Co'mpton, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Ims been weighing the electron, tiniest of particles in the universe, and the results aie some biain-dizsiying figures indeed. For the election, he says, weighs just about nine-tenths ol a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a gram. It carries a clunge of electricity, too —about one two-billionth of the .standard electrostatic unit in which electricity is measuicd. Write down the figure one, and follow it with 110 xeros. The resulting figure is the number of electrons it would take to fill tho universe to the greatest distance disowned by astronomy, if it were possible to pack electrons close together side by hide. Is it any wonder that the scientist who has to work with calculations such as those occasionally goes about in a daze and gets the name of being an absent-minded piofesbor? v i Wni ib not an act of Cod, but a cimic of man. —Secretary of State Cordcll Hull.

Outside the blizzard swept ncross the windy space, holding dead and alive, alike, prisoners in its icy clutch. Had Tanle Josephine's rage burned out her life or was there' some other reason for her death? Tiiis thought was foremost in the minds of all. About 10 o'clock the two men who had started down the canyon the day before came staggering back to the hacienda, half -frozen and 'saying that the road was impassable. They had been unable to get through. Ait night they had fought the storm and • were glad to have escaped with their lives. "The Indian," Pearl John remarked, "did not bring any report on the road." "The Indian was not at his post at the top of the trail," the men. tokl him. "He does not know." This proved to be the case, when an investigation was made. Broken Shield had vanished as completely as had his tribal ancestors. lunch Professoi Shaw announced that he was going to do some studving, and, since his host did not ot|er any objection, lie went to'his room and closed the door. ; Methodically he unlocked a desk and took out a small black notebook. This he >ut Into his pocket, along with a ;ape measure rolled into a round metal holder. After waiting a moment he walked to the door. The corridor outside was .empty, and a low hum of conversation -'ome from the living room. The wofessor stepped out into the corridor and shut the door soundlessly behind him. Then he made tiis way down the hall until he was opposite the door with the lion's head kmvker. Looking carefully about, he took a key from his pocket and slipped it into the lock. In a minute the door opened and he was standing at the top of a long flight of adobe steps. He closed the door carefully and, turning on a small pocket flashlight,' went slowly! down into the darkness below. " At last he stood in what appeared to be an ordinary storage room. A great many boxes and barrels were arranged in neat piles around three sides, leaving one wall clear. The professor eyed' this, vacant space with some interest, but ihcre seemed to be.nothing unusual about it. He ran his hand over the surface and got a painful splinter in one.finger for his curiosity. * •? t : JJE had traced the entire structure so that he could reconstruct it in his notebook, much is it must have stood out against the skyline atop the mesa. An reposing and well-built communal house-it must have been, he had decided, for the adobe was of fine quality, evidently the Work o£ master builders. But Professor Shaw did not have lime to stand mooning over bygone days. The cellar ;had further significance for him and the hours were all too : short in which to prove this, thing pf which he had been so sure. Once more he went over as much of the room as he could without-moving anything, examining every inch of the walls and floor. The search was unrewarded. : • He paused before that blank space and looked at it thoughtfully. -Was there ahy : reason why three sides of the room should be filled and nothing placed against that pffticular wall? Throwing the yellow beam of his light against its 6dges, he'peeved at the •xall closely, but, -so. far as he could see, the parls'fiiled'togcther so closely it was apparent that it had never been moved; . Carefully he tapped the wall, listening in tcnlly for evidence of a hollo 1 beyond. Just as he was about to give- no delected a difference in i, sound, and eagerly , he compsivij its location with the notes in hj book. He was right then, aftcf all. There was a hollow spaij behind that wall—a space if could almost outline, now that If knew it was there. * 4 * ^-LL the pueblos had their kivi or places for religious cere monies below the level of the Jh ing quarters. Fortunately, 11 present-day Pueblo Indians si clung lo (heir ancient customs < building so that it was not di iicult to reconstruct the life their ancestors. The professor had found cv dencna lhat they 'slill made coi cessions to the old religion, in ea he white man's God failed "• —as in time of drouth, f< .lance. It was almost certain,'-thereto; hat the old kiva was beneath t pot where he now stood, ai. more lhau probable that the t forest family knew about th oo. He was ncaring the end lis quest. Perhaps within lands would lie the solution of . .he strange happer;ngs on 11 mesa. >--. Just how he would use thj tno'wlcdgc, if lie did get it, tl professor had not .decided. Of oi| liing he was certain. He wou" make young do Forest swallo-j every one of the insinuations 1| lad cast at him. Already he couB picture the other man's feeling when he, the despised professij of archeology, took things in" his own?hands and became t one to dictate. So engrossed was he in this i vesligation that he did not hear slight movement behind him, n was he conscious that other ey than his were, watching his tap line, the metal-tipped end which, slithered across the-floi with a faint rasping sound. At last, satisfied by the resul the professor made rapid calcul lions in his notebook, th propped the electric torch on .. floor, so that its beam of light ft directly on the space in the wr where he had been working. I was pressing against the wall wi his shoulder when someone leapt upon him from behind. A gr.e fist struck his head, blollin consciousness.. -The last thin, professor remembered was . tightening o). a tapeline arou his bare.throat.,* x • ; (To Be Continued) tl.
