Democratic Leader'- Robinson then ask'ed unanimous consent for a vote tomorrow on President Hoovor's veto of the Philippine Independence bill. Long objected and remarked: "There are some senators on this side of the chamber who have told me they do not fully understand tho Philippine bill. They want me to speak at length and explain It to them." CLAIM HAVE VOTES TO OVERRIDE VETO WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. <u. P.)— Poll of the "complete membernhlp of the Senate" has revealed sufficient votes to override President Hoover's veto of the Philippine Independence bill, Senator Tydlngs, Democrat, Maryland, announced on the floor Into today In an effort to break the filibuster of Senator Long, Democrat, Loulslnnu. Tydtngs' announcement come after Minority Leader Robinson had failed; due to Long, to obtain unanimous consent for a vote on tho veto tomorrow. "It shows I have done some good," Long replied to Tydlngs' announcement and favored the Murylander with a Chesterfleldeah bow. "Talk will never bring the country back to its sensei," Tydlngs chlded, "nor provide employment or a bit of bread for anybody. As soon aa I can get the floor I shall offer a resolution to Remove a $500,000,000 tax burden, from the American people. We can't do anything until we get a chance to legislate." "I tlinnk the senator. 1 shall be an educated man If he continues to Instruct me," Lomj remarked. 'Long Not Dismayed TydlnRS hinted that the Glass bank bill might- be displaced to choke the filibuster, to which Long replied; "Has tho senator from Maryland got consent of the proper persons to displace the Glass bill? When h6 does, let him come buck and see me." The "Klngflsh" said that before he Hpoke on the Philippine bill, a poll Showed the Senate four votes short of beating the veto. "Now the senator says we have enough votes," Long added. "I don't know what changed those votes. But 1 know, what has been going on here." Then with u broad, toothy smile: "I don't feel that I have done any harm." • Tydlngs' claim of enough votes to override the President's veto was not accepted by opponents of the bill. Estimates of votes to sustain the President ranked from 25 to 31, but absentees were counted on to determine the fate 'of the measure. L. A.
