".ount "o Keep Your ipouse BV PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, D. C.—Of all Oie proposed reforms of Congress, those which would seek to change Ihe rc- lationshtps between Congress and the people are most controversial. Basis for the belief that some change is needed Is the' fact thai Congressmen have to run too many errands and do loo many, petty chores for llieir constituents. This Is supposed to keep the Congressmen so busy they don't have time to legislntc in the national Interest. Yet if all these tasks like helping their people get jobs, pensions, war contracts, or settlement of claims against the government, were taken away from Congressmen aiid given to some other agency, there is possible danger that the whole system of representative government would be weakened. After all; Congressmen are elected to represent the people of their district in Washington and look out for Iheir Interests.

S. Court of Claims. To relieve Representatives of-the eccjsslty of running. for. office so 'cquently that it amounts to all he time, it has been proposed that icir terms of office be lengthened rom two to six years, like Sena- ors'. It would take a Constitution- 1 amendment lo put this over, and lie chances are slim. It • can be rgucd that forcing Rcperscnta- ivcs to run for office every other •ear makes them watch their step nd behave belter, keep in closer ouch with their districts than if hey were cut loose for six-year crms. Other ideas for improving the re- alions belween Congress and tnc eoplc range all the way from hav- ng Congress hire a press agent lo oiug a much betler cdlling job on lie daily Congressional Record and ultlng Congress on the radio. JONGKKSS ON TIIE AIR This last to particular!} inti'lgu- ig.' To watch visitors come Inlo :ie galleries, linger a lew moments, :ien leave in disgust gives a faint dca of how fast listeners mlg'it pin the cllnl if they liappencd lo unc .in on the Congressional frc- iicy. Al the other eml of the cale, Iherc is the thought ot how Congressional spellbinders might be erupted lo make political speeches or home comumpllon, if they tnew they were on the air and it iisn't costing them anything. The whole question of improving •elations between Congress and the jcoplc really boils down to a piob- em for the electorate, not to men. I has been proved time and again .hat most people don't know who their Congressman Ls. Too lew ;ood men \vant to make public ervlcc u career, considering the risks too great. There are many able men in Congress in spite of this situation, and it is the opinion of some of them that Congress could be made much more efficient, even under its own nnti(|uated rules and procedures, if only the voters would elect better Congressmen. And that puts the responsibility for the primary Congressional reform right where it belongs—on the people who cast the ballots. U. S.
