The least the Senate can do is provide the bat, ;ts I think any reasonable lawmaker will agree, after reading this report, (for the insurance company) on my wounds. I was sitting there, gentlemen, in the senate caucus room last u-eck listening to one Robert Candy of Jackson, Miss., tell the War In- vcstieaiing Committee about politics jn the Magnolia state. He and Sen. Theodore G. Bilbo, he testilied, collected S25.000 I'roin war contractors to help elect Wall Doxey to the senate in 1042. Doxey lost despite their best efforts, which included paying thc opposition candidates in the .primaries cold cash for their subsequent support. Yes. said the soft-voiced Gandy ho and Bilbo dropped in on Ross Collins, an ex-congressman who ran for thc Senate and lost, to see vhnt they'd have, to pay him foi aTipl'orting Doxey. The Wi-yenr-ola Collins stalked this moment, stumbled ovei rhair. "Hello, Ross," said dandy. "I'm not going lo talk_to a damn iar like you." Collins replied. "Gentlemen,'' soothed chairman lames E. Mead of New York. Gandy wns about to say how much ho paid Collfns, when the latter stood up, strode over my feet this time, and took a hard poke at his fellow politico. Here thc proceedings Etcl a Ullle confused. Gantlys reel-leather chair -.mashed to the fioor. Collins tried to jump on hini. Gaudy kicked him 'n the .stomach. Gandy hit him again in the neck.

So all the cops trod across my lacterntcd feet. They picked up Gandy. They looked him over for blood and broken bones, but found neither. Then they grabbed thc flailing arms of Collins, who sat down by me, red-faced, and grin- ncil., "Why." I asked, "did you hit that fellow?" "Well." he said, "I'll tell you.
