Neb., the new President must lake his oath of office almost eight weeks before any predecessor—In January—often a blustering, snowy month even as far south as the languid Potomac. Norrts sponsored the constitutional amendment In the belief that the "lame duck" Congress In modern times was a rsllc of the past with Its slow transportation arrangements. Now with airplane and streamlined train, he argued Hie will of the people In a November election should react on legislation with the beginning of the new year after tbe election.

May Need New I.avv In that event a new law would havo to be rushed through setting another date for verification of the electoral vote. This would be necessary in event of the house fail- Ing to organize, if a new President Is to take the oath on Jan. 20. Inauguration day often has been a day of rough weather, straining the physical strength of government officials, particularly of Justices of Supreme Court who usually attend en mass;. March Is blustery and dangerous In Washington. January is si-en more so. The capitoi fcr sweril years past has been susceptible to New England wintry weather.
