J Croivds Hold Breath. Declaring he wanted aclion on T ·cent cotton and 90 cent wheat loan ·amendments which were abandoned ·when the AAA announced a com- ·promise 10 cent loan plus subsidy ·program for cotton, Long was the ·center of a highly dramatic scene, ·an instant before midnight as sav ·crowds in galleries held their breaths. Long at that point was droning on in a leisurely manner readin^ from an old number of the Congres- bional Record. Previously he had tehouted "I won't surrender" as ad- inistration leaders soueht to rot him to desist. S e n a t o r Schwellenbach '(D- Vash.) who argued that Long was blocking funds for the aged and fripplecl, arose to point an accusing finger at the Louisiana senator 1110 say: Desire for · Publicity. "It is now a minute before mi(i- tgnL. I ask whether or not because bf his selfish desire for publicit" the senator from Louisiana hasn't Defeated the hopes, the aspirations hncl^the desires of millions of pco- Before Long could yell his oft iterated "that ain't so," the bi- Mocks hand moved to 12 and Vice President Garner's g av cl cracked The senate is adjourned sine die " ,he vice president proclaimed. (The two houses, hours earlier iad passed resolutions for a\iti iiatie adjournment at midnight ) The galleries, silent a minute bc- ore Garner's gavcl fell, burst into a ;oar. Senator Long walked out of ,hc chamber, alone. Turn Clock Back ' A c r o s s the capitol, in the house ·harnbcr, leaders had turned their flock back in the half expectation ·hat perhaps the senate might do · kewisc, w e a r - L o n g down, and ·peed the deficiency Dill to enactment.

It was 12 ludnight by its clock when that · appcnccl, but actually it was 12-09 I m., eastern standard time. Thus ended the historic session l-mch saw such measures passed as he $4,880,000,000 work relief bill frgest appropriation of ail time-' lie far-reaching social security ' hcasiire; a new, if only temporary neutrality policy for America; a bank bill giving a reorganized fed eral reserve board more centralized control over money and credit amendments to strengthen AAA and TV A; a $250,000,000 new tax bill; utilities regulation, and a list of other major acts. Strike Down NBA. It also saw the supreme court strike down the new deal's number 1 experiment, NRA, starting a constitutional debate sure to echo in the I93« campaign, and it saw the senate vote down American adherence to the world court despite administration efforts. All in all, expenitures authorized during the session totalled some $10,250,000,000. ' There was some uncertainty today about the financing of sociai security and other measures during the interim until congress meets again next January. During the heat of the long filibuster last night, the Louisianan had pointed to assertions that the Roosevelt administration couid get the money from the $4,880,000,000 work relief funds. Indicates Otherwise. Senator Robinson of Arkansas, democratic leader, replied that Comptroller General McCarl, czar of federal expenditures, had indicated otherwise. Robinson emphatically charged Long with "deliberately killing" a bill "carrying funds for the aged and crippled." As the fury of debate subsided, however, other leaders indicated a belief that sufficient money could be found. Chairman Buchanan (p., Tex.) of the house appropriations committee, said the president could finance "everything necessary between now and January through executive orders. As the situation stands, the deficiency bill, with the senate cotton-wheat loan amendments which the senate added, lies over to next session.

Notice also has been given that the court will be asked to pass on the validity of the processing tax. An appeal in the Hoosic mills case may be filed today. Rumors are current, too, that a move is under way to contest the Guffey bituminous coal regulation law in lower courts immediately, for quick presentation to the supreme court. Other enactments expected to be challenged include the Wagner -labor, social security laws and others. END STRIKE BY INCREASING PAY Reach Compromise Plan in Canning Plant Walkout at Cambridge.

(A-The sudden death of Mrs. Tom Con- rially, wife of the junior senator from Texas, struck a tragic note in the closing hours of congress. Mrs. Connally, who was believed in perfect health, .died yesterday In her husband's office on capitol hill after she suffered a heart attack in a senate office building elevator. Jimmy Walker Not to Be Prosecuted on Income Tax Charges ^j WASHINGTON, Aug. 27. GfV- The justice department announced .oday it will not prosecute James J. Walker, self exiled former mayor of New York, on income tax charges. Government attorneys said they thought the government's slate is now clear as far as the self-exiled Walker is concerned. Unless New York state charges are pending against the former mayor, he will probably be free to eturn to America from his English hideout if he chooses. The justice department said a thorough study by tax experts here and by the United States attorney in New York showed that "there has not been found sufficient evidence to prosecute for a criminal offense." Iowa Jobless Relief for July Shows Big Decrease From June DES MOINES, Aug. 27. UP-- J. C.

If I were an American I would support tht measures which have been before congress with a view toward procuring the nonparticipation of America in European quarrels, I should, in fact, wish to see England adopting a similar policy. J think it will be possible for America to remain neutral providing no munitions are supplied to either side and other provisions of the recent neutrality resolution ar e rigidly enforced. Neutrality Is Imperative. At this stage of the world's history, when war is likely to destroy civilization and all the European powers that engage !n It, neutrality appears to me imperative to the interests of civilization. I have hoped that the campaign in Ethiopia may prove so burdensome and unpopular as to cause the downfall of Mussolini which would prove the beginning of a better state of affairs In Europe whereas the probable effect of a war against fascism will spread fascism to countries now free from it or alternately collapse all orderly government. Wise in Slow Action. On these grounds I hold that the British government is wise in moving slowly, since to my mind the most important thing is to avoid a general war. On one hand, I feel, of course, that Italy's behavior is totally indefensible. The Italian cause has only demerits. A case doesn't exist. On the other, I don't think it will be possible to stop Italy except through threat, perhaps even the actuality of war. Likely General War. If there were war on this issue it would very likely become a genera! war. I do not think Ethiopia is sufficiently important to justify the risk of such an appalling catastr- phe. It is said we should at all costs uphold the covenants of the league, but since Germany and Japan left the league, it has become merely Mildred Harris Tries Comeback ·n e group of powers In the balance f power. War in behalf of the league, there- ore, is hardly distinguishable from he old balance of power war.

Alimony Subject for Argument by Co-Ed Debaters This Year IOWA CITY, Aug. 27. W--Alimony will be the subject for argument by co-ed debaters throughout the western conference next season, University of Iowa speech officials said today. Prof. A. Craig Baird, director or debate, said, "I believe the subject is a good one if we can get any women to take the negative side to the alimony question. However, since most of the women debaters have never been married or divorced, there should be a minimum amount of prejudice connected with, the subject." Relief won't spoil Americans permanently.
