UPl--This town's polic'e force, all nine of them, will carry their lunch or go without it if a regulation proposed by the council becomes law. The regulation provides that no-policeman shall enter a restaurant where 'beer is served except in the line of duty. Which would be all right except that almost every restaurant in town sells beer.

Long Interrupts. Here Long interrupted: "In speaking of the leadership had more particularly in mind, i well as anybody, the senafc from Mississippi. I was not spea ing only .of the senator from Art aosas. When I speak of the leadei . ship, I think the senator knows I ] certainly had him'in mind for the tax policy he has pursued. He need make no 'defense of anyone else; let him take care'of himself." "I am glad," Harrison replied, 'the senator looks on me as included in the leadership, but if .others care no more about his estimate of me than I care about it, it makes no difference because in my opinion the opinion of the senator from Louisiana is less respected by the membership of this body as a whole: and~by the country than that of any other senator here." Tells of Betting. The verbal duel between Long and Rightor started when William C. Grace, a Washington attorney, testified he had made bets at a New Orleans race track on the advice of officials .arid all his selections won.

The track Grace visited, Rightor said, was Jefferson. "That's your track, senator,' he added; Long shot back that Rightor's statement was an "infamous falsehood and there's not a word of truth in it." Never Placed Bet. "I have never been in a race track in," Long added. "I never placed a bet on a horse race." Meanwhile Rightor had calmly risen and angrily leaned toward Long. "I'd just like to say you wouldn' say that if there weren't a lot o | policemen here," he told the sena tor. Long then invited him to step outside. Shaking his fist, Rightor said "You wouldn't do a thing to me ol- man." Long has charged, that Sullivan dominated the internal revenue of f ice in New Orleans since Moore be came collector. He is fighting con donation of Moore's appointmen* Paid Huey's Debts. Col. E. L. Bradley, Kentuck sportsman, told the committee t had donated $5,000 to help pay of the "political debts" of Senate Long after the latter was electe governor of Louisiana in 1928.
