' Senator Borah made a speech urging .them to do so. It was magnificent. Progressives crowded around and shook his hand. Everyone said, "This means an extra session." But when the time came to»vote, Borah had no. objection to a compromise. * * * N O OTHER half dozen of legislators put together have found so much fault with so many of President Hoover's policies as Senator Borah. Yet no other half dozen of spellbinders put together did so irmch to help Mr. Hoover in his campaign for the white house in 1928, tho he was quite w e l l enough quainted with the c a n d i d a te to know very accurately in advance what his policies would be. S o m e people argue that Borah definitely d o e s not want a presi- Senutor Borah c i en t with whom he would have to agree--that harmony between himself and the administration would be unendurable to him. I am not so sure of this. The senator seems to me to agree with the administration' better than he appears to. The administration wantec a compromise on unemployment anc agricultural relief. The senator made a tremendous demonstration in full- fledged relief's favor,.but he did not prevent a compromise, as he could, unquestionably, .by standing pat for it. * * * IT GENERALLY is recognized that I Senator Borah was the most eloquent of all the speakers at the progressives' conference in Washington just before the middle of March. The progressives threaten to bolt the G. O. P. ticket in 1832 if the democrats put up a presidential candidate satisfactory to them against President Hoover, whom they disapprove of thoroly, but, who, they ad mit, is sure to be named again as ,'the republicans' standard bearer. And there are forecasters who, notwithstanding all that has hap- nened heretofore, are predicting that it last Senator Borah will bolt with 'hem. While in principle I deprecate rambling, I think anyone who can lit a few bets on, with upholders of his proposition, even offering odds ip to ten to one or thereabouts, has in opportunity to make a little easy noney. Incidentally, Senator Borah had a wo-hour luncheon engagement with , he president the day before Hoover leparted for his Caribbean trip.
