In his five years as manager, Simmons wrought some miracles of management. At the time he took over the system it was run down, the prisoners discontented anc escaping in droves, and there was a strong effort under foot to centralize the system near Austin in hope of bringing order out of chaos. Lee Simmons soon straightened that out. Item: In 1929 it cost $293 per man to maintain the prisoners in the system; in 1934, the cost per man had been reduced to $85 Item: In 1930 there were only 136 prisoners in school today the average attendance is 3,000. Item: The nel operating loss in 1929 was $1,446,035; in 1934 it wa only $410,798. The physical property of the system has been improved along with the improving morale of the inmates. Simmons cites 10 modern concrete buildings erected in the last four years as proof. During the preceding 20 years only one had been put up. Under Simmons the system has become nearly self- sustaining, with the farms producing much of the food consumed not only in the prisons but in some of the state's other eleemosynary institutions. It is a remarkable record of good management, anci Texas owes Lee Simmons a few lusty cheers. It is too bad he is quitting. — Abilene News. THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON .BY RODNKY DUTOHU NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — The House of Representatives is a place—for all but a few— where obscure politicians go and lose their identities. Those who stand out from the pack are almost invariably elderly gents who have time-served their way to positions of power through the seniority system, which sometimes is called the senility system. Yet today its most outstanding members—in point of independence, aggressiveness, ability, integrity, and future promise—seem, to be a couple of fellows who have been there only eight months—Mrs. Maury Maverick, 38, of Texas, and Mr. Vito Marcantonio, 32, of New York. A burly, bull-voiced son of the plains, whose ancestors were big shots in early Texas days and in colonial New England, and a swarthy, keen-eyed, vigorous little Italian-American from one of New York's toughest districts. You wouldn't think they'd have much in common. But they share a passion for free speech, civil liberty, underdogs, social and economic justice, national peace and most of those other things that go to make a complete progressive. Each happens to be a smart politician with a sense of humor, which has enabled them to obtain a lot of .cooperation—even from the old-line leaders—an'd to assume an unofficial leadership of the most effective.liber- al bloc the" shackled House has seen in many years; The liberal House bloc includes Carl Moran of Maine and Otha Wearin of Iowa, with whom Maverick and Marcantonio co-operated in the brilliant fight those two made against the Bland-Copeland ship subsidy bill; Paul Kvale of Minnesota, Eicher of Iowa, Citron of Connecticut, Lister Hill of Alabama, and most of the Wisconsin and Washington delegations. The first revolt Maury and Vito led was against the McSwain-Baruch war profits bill, which seemed to them to guarantee war profits and conscription. The House added an amendment conscripting war profits. The neutrality battle found them in the van of the effort to get an effective bill as against the administration's mild measure and next winter they'll be fighting for an even stronger one. Maverick, badly wounded and decorated for gallantry in the war, has a neutrality bill—prepared with the aid, of 30 professors and international lawyers—which would confine the army and navy to defense of American territory; prohibit contracts to supply munitions or other things designated as contr^brand to warring nations, and ban such exports as well as loans and credits and casual passports to warring countries and war zones, i It was the Texan who exposed the navy's official memorandum branding the Federal Council of Churches, National Council for Prevention of War, and Women's International League, Jane Addams, Clarence Darrow, and Sherwood Eddy as Communistic or "Communist- minded." Marcantonio was campaign manager for Fiorello La- Guardia when LaGuardia was beaten for re-election to Congress in 1932. Then LaGuardia ran for New York mayor and Vito ran for Fiorello's old House seat. Campaigning for each other, both won and Marcantonio is regarded as a worthy successor to LaGuardia, who became the most effective independent leader in the House. A member of the Labor committee, Marcantonio is radical in his demands for la'bor. He led a brilliant but unsuccessful battle against compulsory military training in colleges and managed to block the Dickstein alien deportation bill. He led the unsuccessful revolt for a tax bill soaking all incomes above $5000 and raising the administration ante on big inheritances, incomes and corporations, i If there's a future for radicalism, Marcantonia h&d a big future.

Sept. 5 (/P) — President Roosevelt's orders placing all emergency agencies under the budget bureau aroused speculation here today whether this might not be a move toward meeting opposition attacks on new spending. First stirrings of the approaching election campaign have Indicated that heavy governmental expenditures and an unbalanced budget would figure prominently as an issue. Republican spokesmen apparently intend to keep It a live subject. In his talk with newspaper men at Hyde Park, N. Y., yesterday, however, Mr. Roosevelt said the national emergency had passed and that his orders contemplated a reduction In employe personnel and eventual consolidation where possible. Observers here wondered whether this meant that when congress meets In January the president would relinquish any of the emergency powers voted him to deal with the domestic crisis. Critics hove seized upon these added powers also as an Issue, calling them "dictatorial." Even before he left for Hyde Park the president gave hints of moves to trim down government agencies. He arranged with heads of bureaus dealing with housing activities to prevent an overlapping of their functions. He also set September 12 as as deadline for receiving applications for money from the $4,000,000,000 works fund. NEWS Waut Ads .are effective.
