Borah (Rep., Icfaho) said today. "I am opposed to the bill because t am for the farmer," Borah said. "1 do not think a single farmer in my state would take advantage of the bill if it became law. It clashes with the fundamental makeup of the farmer himself." A presidential veto of the bill was predicted while the measure was being enacted during the confusion..and rush of the last hours of' the 73rd 'congress. Unofficial word to the same effect cameo also while the president WES out of the city on the trip from which he returned today. The Frazier-Lemke bill, regarded as the first in a series of farm relief measures by Senator Lynn J. Frazier (Rep., N. D.I and Representative William Lemke, also of North Dakota, would provide a method by which insolvent farmers could readjust their debts. "If the bill provided a real moratorium it would have merit,' said Borah, "but it means that a farmer would have to turn over all of his property and assets for an appraisal and that then if his creditors permitted, he would retain his land and pay only a stated part of his mortgage."

Forgotten Man Remembered, Human Rights Rec- Say Leaders WASHINGTON, June 26 (UP)— Democratic congressional leaders (oday look the flcld against Republican critics with a defense of the achievements of thc 13rd congress. Senate Leader Joseph T. Robinson of Arkansas and House Leader Joseph W. Byrns of Tennessee praised the record of congress and the ryDgram of President Roosevelt. Snld Robinson: "Congress performed a service to the people of this country unmatched in our history. Every measure we enacted was debated at, length. What, was done by the 73rd congress was thc matured Judgment of a majority of lhat body. The forgotten man was remembered hi our .legislation." Said Byrns: "It was a congress worthy to rank with those outstanding legislative bodies which marked the creation of new eras in the struggle for human progress, There has been a rebirth in this nation of lhat Jeffersonlan principle -ditch places human rights above property rights." WASHINGTON, June 26 (UP)— New deal campaign strn(cgy this . year points to the 1938 necessity of maintaining tlie political, union ot the south and ,wcst. Political observers are speculat- ' it)8 on the methods by which Pres^ dent Roosevelt and his uldes will achieve that objective without alienating the east or further In- " flaming a critical group of southern Democrats. Straw votes indicate the president still holds a majority . of eastern voters. Tliere Is, however, nucleus of eastern discontent appearing more clearly In congressional voles during the past session than In straw polls. Cm half a dozen vital admin- . tetratlon Issues in the session Just • closed the east consistently cast a bloc of votes against the new deal. Other opposition was Inter- mlttcnl.

Approximately one-third of the senate vote and half of the house vote against the almlnlstratlori's reciprocal tariff plan were eastern. Tho Tugwell brain trust Issue came ' to a vote on the professor's nomination as undersecretary of agriculture. Jt did not prove much of anything except that support and opposition to the brain trust concept of government was scattered among both parties. The • midwest, southwest and northwest' contributed nine Republican votes for Tugivell's conflrniatlon. A small southern Democratic' group In the senate has been- often adversely critical of new deal policies. The progressive He--' iiibllcans have generally followed White House leadership. They are disturbed now by the possibility that administration campaign sup-, sort will be given a Wisconsin • Democrat, against Senator Robert M.
