HITLER PLEDGES GO-OPERATION By CHARLES 1. STEWART A S H-I N G TON, (CPA) -- Progressive-ism in congress goner- a 11 y is P r o- Hoosevelt. It agrees with the white house incumbent that supreme court must be embed. To accomplish this purpose it is more insistent upon a cons t i t u t i o n a \ a m e n d m e n t than the president is. He w a s expected, i n h i s message to the legislators, when they met Jan. 5, to recommend stricter limitation, by the amendment method, of the high tribunal's powers. But he gave it. as his opinion thai the constitution wii do as it is. The plan he suggested was something in the nature o£ an appeal to the justices' better natures; moral suasion, so to speasc. Progressives Skeptical. The progressives hold that il can ,.,at a majority of the august judges have any better natures to appeal to. They urge a constitutional surgical operation to abridge the federal bench's authority. Still, president and progressives concur: . . Something "must" be done about the federal supreme court. The president hopes that it may be done by kindly argument. The progressives hold that it can be done only by clinical methods of a drastic character. In principle they see eye to eye. One way or another, the supreme court must be semi-emasculated--by asquiesceece on the court's own part or by main strength. Differ on Details.

Relict and rehabilitation in the s u f f e r i n g midwest came first.

With at least 200,000 flood refugees expected to go on relief, rolls, lhe house sped approval of the S790,000,000 appropriation originally intended to finance relief through June.
