Congress, in brief, isn't used to being efficient. =* t * Receiving the Presitlcnt's three messages took most of the first week. Tlie Congress listened lo the .irsl one. The olhcr Uvo were just filed and printed in the Congressional Record for future reference. Most members probably haven't "Ciitl them yet, and never will. In the Senate, when •Prcsitlln-*' Officer Arthur If. Viinclenberg an- loimced that Ihc, rending of the "0-page Budget Message would be dispensed with. New Hampshire Sen, Charles \V. Tobey got up and Icclnrcd, "I might say with Shake- pcare. Tor this relief, much thanks. ' H was one of the shortest slieeclic., ever delivered in Congress. At the end of Hie firsl week louse Democratic Minority Leader jam Rayburn of Tcxtis rose to in- liihe what the second week's pio- eram.

Post-election talk by the Repub- icans made out they would cut the Poncral Biulget to around S30 bi lion, or less. When the President asked for a $31 billion budget it was a terrible shock.
