Hays (D-Ark) that from now on the House of Representatives will have an increasingly important voice in the conduct of the na- ti0n ' S Cha!rman f Rkh a rds (D-SC) of the : House Foreign Relations Committee recently com plained in the House that the State Department has been giving the Senate foreign Affairs Committee priority in consultations on foreign policy matters. Elsie Jam's, Sweet heart of G/'s, Dies BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. I* — Death has taken Elsie Janis, who sung and danced her way into the hearts of New York, London, Hollywood, and the doughboys of World War I. She succumbed Sunday night, as quietly as she had lived during the past decade, in her home here. Friends disclosed her passing in an announcement yesterday. She would have been 67 next Tuesday. Miss Janis spent nearly SO years on the stage and in films. Her last Jew years were spent fighting Illness. For 20 years she was a top com- medienne on Broadway and on the screen. In 1940 she made her last movie, "Women in the War," and retired. But she remained the same effervescent Elsie, trim ol figure and still able to do cartw.ieels, until her health failed. She lived simply and passed up many a party to entertain for veterans in the soldiers' home not far from her own dwelling. During the past few years she occupied the Beverly Hills house with a servant-chauffeur, Prank Reme, and her nurse-secretary Elaine Lamb. Elsie, born Elsie Janis Bierbow ei in Columbus, Ohio, went on the stage at 8. She was a Broadway hi soon afterward as "Little Elsie,' and at 11 she was a headllner In vaudeville. During World War I she was the "Sweetheart of the A.E.F.," appealing In hazardous advanced areas to entertain troops. Bitter Drink Backfires KANSAS CITY (tl — Girls being Initiated into the Aristonian Literary Society at Central High School here must sip a bitter fluid. It's part of an Old custom symbolizing the bitter and the sweet. Ten teen-age girls gulped their tier potions during a ceremony e other day — and promptly beam* ill. School officials said someone for- ot to dilute the potassium solu- on they used. One girl was hospitalized over- Kht, but all are recovering. Richard! .ccused the Admini»- Federal tax- delinquencies In the • trstlon of treating the House "like . weak minded, illigitimate member of the family." Hays, a member.of the House Commute*, said Eichards had » Just grievance. But, he said, "We must reallie that this is Just a phase of a maturing foreign policy precedure. Hays pointed ovit that the Senite took the commanding. position for years because, under the constitution, the Senate must approve •11 foreign treaties. Naturally, the Etate Department concentrated on the Senate. Not So Important But, said Hays7~in these days foreign treaties aren't so important and the emphasis has shifted to foreign aid programs. And here. he said, is where the House becomes Important since, under the constitution, money bills must originate In the House. So when the administration tnd the State Department com« to Congress for authorization of foreign aid programs and then for money to carry them out they have to start In the House. Hays also said ne understands that Richards' blast really rocked the State Department. "I hear the department really is very contrite," he said. "They hadn't realized, apparently, that the House was being slighted. I don't believe we'll have any more difficulties." Little Rock tax district showed an 8 per cent decline last year in the face of a national Increase. This was shown hi a report from the Treasury Department which Sen. Williams (R-Del) has placed In the Congressional Record. Tax delinquencies in the Little Rock district totaled $2,108,438 as of Dec. 31, compared with $2,31S, 836 a year previous.

On Soil Bank Sen. Pulbrlght (D-Ark) took the opportunity this week, during debate on the farm bill, to try and pin down the fact that the soil bank program would permit farmers to build fishponds on land taken out of production . In » discussion with Chairman Ellender (D-La) of the Senate Agriculture Committee, Fulbright sought to establish the point so that it would serve as a guide to the Agriculture Department In administering the soil bank pro- gram. The question is, whether .a farm er could raise fish commerclallj in a pond established on land taken out of production. Under the bill a farmer would have to agree not to harvest any crop "excep timber and wildlife or other na NAMED BROTHERS The four Marx brothers (Chico, Harpo Oroucho, Gummo) were given their odd names by Art Fisher a rnonolpgist, .who watched their acts from the wings one day and promptly rechristened them Condemned Convict Wins Hew Chance to Appeal Sentence tural products . . . which do no increase supplies of feed for do mestic animals." Ellender seems to think fis! would be regarded as "wildlife' and Sen. Aiken (R-Vt), rankin Republican on the committee, sai he felt certain that commercia fishing would be allowed. Suggests Probe Rep. Gathings (D-Ark) suggested this week a congressional in- •estigation of the National Association For Advancement of Colored People, the source of its funds and its general charter, but he doesn't plan to Intorduce a resolu- lon calling for the Inquiry. This li because tne author of such a resolution, by custom, like- Let Us Tell You Why The Automatic Means No Half-Clean Clothes Only the Maytag Automatic has double-spin .tubs that never let dirty water strain back through the clothes.

Ma«n Ph. 2-2071 ly would head up the investigation and Gathings said he lacks the time for the Job. "I'm too busy with cotton and rice legislation and the farm bill to be able to handle an investigation," he said, "after all, these are vital matters to my district. He added, however, that we are working on the matter and -I believe that someone will introduce such a resolution." Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark)^who was "amazed and shocked" at President Eisenhower's veto of the Harris-Pulbright gas bill, thinks the President now should submit a bill embodying his views. "The message is difficult, to understand, coming from the President," Harris said. "I think the only way it can be clarified as to dent twice in the message said he believed the legislation, that it was the kind of legislation needed for the consumer- -the only way he can clarify his position is to present to Congress a bill that would meet his requirements for these •basio objectives. I call upon him to do so."
