" TOLA, KANSAS SESSION AT THE Lawmakers (^rc^ited for Smooth Actl<Qii in the Banking Crisis (Special political letter to The Register by A.L. Shultz.) Topeka, Kas., Mar. 8.—This is once when tlie legislaturfe seems to haye been in session at the right time. Emergency measures' pushed through the house and senate during the last week . unquesUonably sa,ved a special session.cSJl and enabled the state to meet unusual situations promptly and effectively. iiong after the legislature adjourns, no doubt, there will be people who will recall undesirable acts and build up a fairly strong argument against holding another law making meeting during,the coming quarter of a century. Yet unusual situations developed through economic distress were impressively presented at a time when the legislature happened to be in the right place at the right lime. Not only did the legislature very Qiiickly enact seemingly necessaiT measures to mefet exceptional conditions, but tl^ie element of party politics did not appear at any time in consideration of proposals offered Ip protect bank depositors, home ov.ners and investors. No fewer than three bills and resolutions of outstanding importance to the state were passed, in n many days. They passed almost without a dLs -senting vdi^^ but in a spii-lt that sho'.ved positive determination to keep the state's good iiamc and finp .ncial stability above question. Handling of the emergency legislation was !i grave matter. Yet it WR.s directed with a coolness that dlsplny!>cl a world of Rood sensp. and ))robably inoio leadership than In any work accomplished during the session. The week'.s acllvilles will take uMdl.s))ulod plnco a.s the mcst Important i)rrlod of the 1033 .ses- .Mon, An evidence of clear thlnkln;j: was In the Klnav miuiagemerit be • hind adoption of the resolution placing the slate's banking policies In complete control of the governor and state bank commissioner for a two-.year period. Both.senate and house went into executive: session to consider this measure. It wasn't exactly necessary—the resolution passed both houses in open session without a dissenting vote--but it was a display of wise legislative management, i Had the frank statement of facts been presented on the floor crowded galleries and lobbies, some of the | spectators would have niisunder- stoody wild stories would have spread from the capitol and unwarranted harm might haye resulted. The executive sessions, though, permitted complete understanding, frank dis- ciission and harmonious action. THE IQLA DAILY REGISTER. THURSDAY EVENINGj MABCH 9,1933.

WHEN >NE EAT P The B|Min Cafttpajgn Is On! Bj Cowan HEIRESS IS FOUND SLAIN IN ROAD It is in sessions such as marked tlje proceedings surrounding banic and farm mortgage legislation that develops leadership. In these im- portknt discussions. Representative Henry S. Buzick Jr.. of Lincoln county was; outstanding. Buzick is a banker, farmer, stockman, barely j 50 and;serving his second term in' the house. He is chairman of the ways and means committee and ranking member of the committee on banks and banking. It was Buzick's personality in a frank, forceful presentation of bank and mortgage matters that threw aside a once threatened hostility and not only brbugHT passage of the measures, but gave the Lincoln county member an exceptional rating in his ownl name. Mystery envelops the killing of 'Aldine Younger, above, 20-year- old heiress of Pontiac, 111., whose body was foimd on a highway near her home. The girl apparently had fallen from or been thrown from an auto. Asher Earle Bentley, below, married society leader of Pontiac, who was held for questioning, admitted having been with the girl, saldijje awakened to find her gone from his car. Income tax debate, passage of the highway investigation resolution arid similar proceedings got most of the publicity for the big week of tlie session. But it was the bank cnn- i trol resolution, an emergency bill permitting depositors to take control of weakened state banks and segregate frozen assets in a trusteeship and a bill directing courts in fixing, upset prices in real estate j foreclosure, tliat will hve for many years as important legislative acts. were in almost constant touch with progress of the banker conference with Governor Landon and members of the house and senate: committees. There was not one prema- tiu-e line published regarding the course to be. adopted. When the committee met to draft the emergency measure, newspaper representatives watched press time slide by as they recognized the committee was withholding action until after small town banking hom-s. Then as the resolution' was whipped Into shape. Governor Landon himself went with legislators to the offices of Speaker Vernon where a dozen members of all groups and both parties were summoned for an outline of plans before an executive session was called. In the senate Lieutenant-Governor Thompson cooperated with the committee in handling of a smooth running program for prompt, effective action that would in no measure bring disturbance to nervous depositors. Emergency nieasures have brought j to the front a select group of memT • bers who are certain to be men- I tfoned proriiinently: in state affairs ; during the' next two }-ears. It is i probable that the .session will end \ with Senator Coe Russell feharing i leadership honors with Senator Dal- ' las Knapp, w:ith at least a hilf doz- j en othere worthy gf high rating. \ They will easily include Taggart. i Dale, Denious, Beckett, and 'Warren. Next to the house management by Speaker 'Vernon, the activity of Btizick. John Blood. "Bill" Reill.v. •Pat" Pedroja. George Melvin, and Charley Hall has been outstanding with Minority Leader Neyin handling a half dozcH or more high ; type Democratic workers worthy of a place on any legislative team. There were several things connected with the emergency bank legislation which was not ex^ ctly for pub• lication at the immediate moment. But they all lead in the general direction of showing how readily responsibility is met when an hour of heed arrives. Apparently thjei^ was no element of slip, in handling of the. program which put BUuisas banks in tlie safety column with almost as little disturbance as turning an electric switch.

Because of the interchange of important calls throughout the day. a special staff of operators was stationed to handle these messages exclusively and to give them preferred attention. A staff of t'nree long distance operators Cared for state bank departmeht calls alone and officials' in that office talked at least twice diu-ing the day to bankers in every county in Kansas. Nowhere was there a leak or Intimation of unusual developments in relaying of • these hundreds of vitally important messages. Legislative action this week will decide the'fate of most of Govemoii Landon's proppsals. But history pl\ the session was written a Week ago. mamms Tbe.ManltQr.
