We, the Sponsors Sen Claude Pepper wants to put the Seliatc on the radio. His idea is to offer the Capitol Hill variety show to tht networks, on the grounds that it woulil injprove debate. Sonic of his colleagues doji't agiee. ; Sen. Charles Tobey (11., N. II. ), llv: cautious New England type, .snys "There are some things that I'd hato to7havc the' public listen to." .-Sen. Theodore F. Green (D., R. I.), also appai evilly n little suspicious ol 1 innovations, says, "This Scnnlo would never do any work." -;Well, that's the question — would debate of national issues on a national hookup bring out the statesman or thu ham in these distinguished Konlle- men? The only way to tell is to try. But if the Senate does get u few weeks with options, it seems to us th> thing should be -done propei-ry. ~ First, there's sponsorship. We don't think the networks should have to pay for fl sustaining program, on the grounds that its a public service. For thev might urn into one of those days wheii tte senators devote most of the session to praising their home states or some other senator or mother's cook ing. And where's the public service in that? So let's have a sponsor. And who shall it be? Who eke but the Bennloi* electors? Tax-paying voters pay the Senates salaries. So why no i tnl' th em Pay for the .broadcasts, too-provided tliat we, the sponsors, have somethim- to-say about how the program is to he too often for oratory. The senators can have their own ideas, but they'll have to hire a ghost writer to put them in' compact, literalc and dramatic; shape. If they want a gag writer, too, OK—so long as they don't overdo tlio Claghom jokes. Wo also ought to have a conimen- lator to (ill in during those occasional moments of silence in the Senate chamber. Hill Sleni oi' Ck-m McCarthy might be good choices to give it to us from ringside, "\VoJl, folks, wfir're coming up for the second round in the debate on tlu- M<Gi!licuddy Anti-Dog Tax Hill.

XXXVII then, hard on the heels of DiNon's leaving, a new nr- ag the first lo know, nswered the doorbell, gom the Sunday dinner 'hey were alj seated. cd the door to the ..r porch, who was old T-^r X«t, but very erect and stylishly dressed in a fur jacket and, a marvelous black hat with purple-yoil.ets on it. The woman said, "What's your name?" .-.' Hannah gavo her name. "Well, well! For your great- grandmother." It was an assertion, not: a question. "Who's sick here?" r.-- . ."Sick?" Hannah repeated "No- tody." v•;-..; -"Or dead? Nobody? Tliat was William •exaggerating, as I supposed, Where is he?" "You mean—Papa?" "Yes, your papa." "He's eating—" • ''Oh, yes!" The woman laughed iVell, won't you invite me in, Hannah? Your own auntie and the only one you've got?" "Aunt Laura!" It was like seeing a character In a myth materialize. 'Do come in, Aunt Laura!" They went into the dining room. Everybody locked up, and Papa lumbered (o his feet, his napkin maiirr.n « crocked, bulging white ,Bp.ron over his stomach, his expression rather scared—tr you could; Imagine such a thing as Papa scared. Aunt Laura said, "How do you do, William'" . JPapn made humming noises In IWs throat, bowed, and took a step fiorward Hannah wondered i£ ho 1 would kiss Aunt Laura ' But P«pa didn't He Just stood fkterc. , "« *»ld, bowing in Mam- direction, "My wife " Mamma was already up, anil shc aid kiss Aunt Laura, heartily on both cheeks. "What a splendid' surprise!" she excliimed. "After nil these years! To think we're sisters-in-law and never meeting until now!" JT was a most enjoyable dinner, for Aunt Laura was simply the soul of geniality, and she ami Mamma were at once on affec'.ion- ntu terms. Only Ptpa seemed not to be having nny dm. After Cie dessert of apricot tart, Aunt Laws said she had so-net!iing to discuvs with Papa before she got the cv^. ning train east. "Your Ictler, William—" "Oh," Momma said, "he dirt wrile you, Laura?" "Not here!" Papa raised his band, nnd now he looked quile scared. "Later!" Mamma said Ihat Aunt Laura couldn't go bnck ihal night they Just wouldn't let hey. Shc must have her luggage filched and slay- she should have Jeff's room. Bui Papa said they ought not dictate to Laura; she had her plans. "My plans ore elastic," Enid Aunt Laura. "I think 1 will stay « while. Bui at the hotel, so that I'll not inconvenience you and slill can sec you every day. You come to lhe hotel with me now, William- we'll talk there." Papa said, "Umm," and folded his napkin. Hannah wished he could havc been a liltle more cordial, but Aunt Laura seemed not to rmnd. Hannah never knew whal Aunt Laura had to discuss with Papa— the subject was never referred to again—or why she was in Blakcs ville this October. But it was fun having her trotting in and out of the house, imperturbably good- humored in spite of Papa's su»- lalned formality. The last week of the month, Papa went out on his tobacco route, nnd Aunt T-auro came every mwninR, bowling up in a c;ib, slaying all day, sewing with rvT.-.rnnia ;md the girls on Rose's trousseau. ... She was there Die night Papa returned from traveling lhe ionic Ilannnh was with her in the hall when Papa mt.rched in and scl down his sample cases.

These responsibilities discharged, she pul on her new white Peter Thompson nnd lied her brown braids with liows of turquoIsT blue moire ribbon, and went downstairs. By Ibis time,' • Dixon nnd Jeff—who bad come all ' lhe \v.iy from New York to be best man--hnd retired into the dining -i>om, because il \vns nearly eight r-Vlod,-. nnd lhe guests were be- .v'nnlnjj (o arrive. tvmah entered the parlor wilh- .".{leaking to anyone, merely iiiif here and there, her face SI'.T,-, a frown between her eyes. *a" down at the piano and ivd hfi- hnnds in her lap, star- at the keyboard. She was to play lhe wedding music, crashing int" the Lohengrin march when she received Iho iigiuil from Beau, wh» was noslod in the lower hall. For days shc had been practicing, nnd she knew now that this was Ibe climax of her e.irccr. Tonight was perfect, and in memory forever Hannah would treasure! its pcrfcelinn—the parlor all delicate pink ;\^,;i green, the gleaming con- dies the si-cut of lhe flowers. Just -•-'.r tonight life was so beautiful it made you ti-lie inside. . . . The clock Chimed, Hannah glanced back et the hall door; Beau was dripping his hand to indicate that Kidney and Rose nnd Papa were al the- top of the stairs.
