As the session began its fourth month, they noted that the senate and house have disposed of only major bills--those authorizing government reorganization and army expansion ' and approving funds tor the WPA, independent federal agencies and for deficiency needs of various departments. Drop Secondary Proposals Altogether congress has finished action on 45 measures out of 7,857--most of them minor one: introduced in both chambers. As a result, leaders expressed determination to drop secondary proposals and stick largely to the program outlined last week by Senator Barkley (D.-Ky.). He estimated that at least two and a half more months would be required. This would mean sidetracking some pet measures oE anti-new dealers, including revision of the Wagner labor relations act and oJ business taxes. Pressure From Politics The rush for adjournment was said to result from several causes, among them the fact that the new deal legislative program was virtually completed last session; the increasing pressure of political considerations as 1940 approaches, and the factional differences among democrats. Some legislators speculated, too, that the president might desire to end the session enrly in ordef to have a freer hand in foreign affairs. When congress is meeting, his every move is subject to the closest scrutiny on Capitol Hill. Despite the often-voiced demands for economy in congress. the president has obtained 'so far just about what he asked on appropriations except : in regard to WPA funds. The house has cut $50,000,000 from his request for an additional $150,000,000. Dynamite Hunted in 18 Loaded R.R.
