DICKSON. WASHINGTON, Dec. ·?. m~ Many issues of historic importance will be considered by the seventy- third congress after it convenes Jan. 3, but the senate and house democratic leaders now see more hope for an harmonious session that will expedite action on President Roosevelt's legislative program. A few months- ago, these same democratic chiefs anticipated much trouble iu the only regular session of this congress. Now they claim that improved conditions will greatly minimize criticism of the administration's policies. Follow President. Some conservative democrats, who have not been friendly to all phases of the administration's programs, assert, however, that with the primary and general congres- sional elections coming In 1934, many have found- it prudent to follow the president despite their personal convictions. Republicans have passed the word along to their colleagues to avoid committing the party against broad proposals and policies of the administration pending developments. A number of the republicans will, however, continue to sharp- shoot at specific features of the administration's recovery program. May Avert Clash, Gradually the president has taken steps which his leaders say may avert open conflict with this congress, overwhelmingly democratic in both houses. To meet demands of inflationists, Mr. Roosevelt not only started the gold purchasing plan but yesterday proclaimed the London silver agreement in effect. Meanwhile, he has pressed the recovery program from different angles. The situation is such that Representatives Byrns of Tennessee, the democratic house floor leader, said he did not expect it would be necessary to invoke drastic gag rules to pass administration proposals. Many such rules were necessary in special session last spring-. No Trouble Seen. If house democrats do as Byrns says he expects, there will be no particular trouble there for the party division on opening day wil be: Democrats 312, republicans 114, SEASON'S GREETINGS (9 te @ ^ @ B @ ^ I) We can say no more on the occasion of Christmas than to wish that the patronage we have enjoyed may be returned to our friends in the form of true Christmas joy.
