About 15 minutes later, our two officers found Mayo hanging with his scarf about his neck. "We thought he had left a note, and we searched his clothes and his cell, but we didn't find anything.

Vandenberg said: "We owe all possible support to Franklin D. Roosevelt in what we all hope and pray may be the permanent upsurge of American affairs. He has given our people new hope; encouragement Is in the air. The country moves ahead." Discussing NRA the senator said: "It has superb features. I applaud them. It has ended sweatshops and child labor. It has initiated the shorter work week, which inevitably must be the root source of our new industrial economy. It encourages fair trade and penalizes throat cutters." Referring again to the president as "a brave adventurer; a man of gallant heartfulness," the speaker said: "We owe the American people u wider and fairer distribution of prosperity when it is reclaimed. We owe the American people effective protection against their exploiters. We owe our common citizenship the renewed stabilities of a larger economic life."
