But there is an effort afoot to change that. A measure before Congress would authorize construction of a third building on Capitol Hill for the Library of Congress. The new structure would be known as the James Madison Memorial Building. If any one man might be called the Father of thfe Constitution, it is Madison. He suggested many of the Constitutional Convention's solutions for difficult problems. When the completed product was submitted for ratification, he was the chief author of the Federalist, a collection of articles that answered the main objections. In the First Congress Madison was the floor leader of the House, being chiefly responsible for adding to the Constitution its first 10 amendents, or Bill of Rights. Jefferson's closest friend and right hand man. he was his secretary of state, and succeeded him in the presidency. Madison had the misfortune to hold the presidency during the War of 1812. Lack of preparation for this conflict resulted in humiliating defeats. Historians feel that this war might have been averted. However. Andrew Jackson won a noteworthy victory with his frontier troops at New Orleans on Jan. 8, 1915. Actually, this battle occurred after the treaty of Ghent had been signed on Dec. 24, 1914. When the American Hall of Fame was established, Madison was among the first to be honored. He was among the great figures who founded the United States. It would appear to be appropriate that a memorial building should bear the name of James Madison. The Lighter Side— Senate Must Hurry On Repudiation Day By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) - The newly appointed postmaster general, Lawrence F. O'Brien, said recently "we are witnessing one of the greatest bursts of creative legislation since this nation came • into being." Taking that as my text for today, I call your attention to newsletter sent out Sept. 30 by Rep. John C. Kunkel. R-Pa. Kunkel commended a certain bill passed by the House and said. "I hope the Senate sees it that way, too." His hopes were fulfilled. v The record shows that the Senate passed the bill even before the House d;d. Which seems to bear out what O'Brien was saying. Apparently, the outbursts of legislative creativity is so great that even some congressmen are having trouble keeping up with it. Back and Forth In this case, the Senate passed the bill July 23. The House passed it Sept. 23 with amendments. The Senate agreed to the House amendments with amendments Sept. 28, and on the same day the House agreed to the Senate amendments to the House amendments. I'm not sure where Kunkel dropped out. but it occurred to me that there are certain drawbacks to having parts of Congress create faster than other parts. House joint resolution 4 is a good example. This measure designated the week of Sept. 13 as "National Literacy Week." It \vas passed by the "House Aug. 12. but the Senate never did get around to acting on it. Thus the nation was forced to spend mid-September in a semi-literate condition If the Senate doesn't hurry up. we are going to be in a similar situation on Nov. 23. which the house has designated "Repudiation Day." Divided in HaU Failure of the Senate to act would leave the nation divided, half of us repudiating and the other half not repudiating. Which would certainly be a pity. Personally, I am a firm believer in massive repudiation. I always say that anything worth repudiating at all is worth repudiating well. Although it has been less creative in this field, the Senate has' been more creative than the House in some other areas. Boiled peanuts, for one. A bill exempting peanuts for boiling from marketing quotas passed the Senate July 23. This puts the boiled peanut in a class by itself. Which is where it belongs. But the House has yet to approve the peanut partition. • Let us hope it acts before Repudiation Day. Weekend Revival At Rodney Church A weekend revival will be held Oct. 15-17 at the Rodney Pilgrim Holiness Church with the Rev.

The Lighter side- Some Notes From Washington Scene By DICK.WEST WASHINGTON—Social . note: An unlisted telephone number used to be a sort of status symbol, but something else is taking its place. It is now considered more chi chi to have an unlisted zip code. •Cultural ' note: During con- tressional debates, it is customary .for the lawgivers to refer to each other in flowery terms even though they may be on opposite sides. Speaking against a certain bill recently. Rep. Wayne L. Hays, D-Ohio, mentioned at least twice that he had been a member of Congress for 17 years. The nefxt speaker was Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez, D-Tex., who favored the bill. Although 'Gonzalez has been in Congress only three years, he demonstrated that he has already mastered the art of the backhand compliment. He remarked that he felt a disadvantage having to follow "the distinguished, very eloquent and very outspoken colleague from Ohio with the tremendous backing of' experience which he has pointed out he has." Drinking note: In the past few years, there has been a big demand for so-called "light" whisky. Which proves that many drinkers would rather switch than have a hangover. It may also prove that han- gvores are at least partly psychological. I base this statement, on a talk I had with a friend who is in the liquor business. He told me that the lightness trend is largely the result of a myth. "It is widely believed that 'light' booze is pale of hue and is less intoxicating," he said. "Actually, this is a double misconception. "Lightness has nothing to do with coloration and alcoholic content, but is a taste comparative. A brand that is barely tinted may not be as 'light' .as one with dark tones and theoretically will get you stoned just as quickly."' As an example of "the part that psychology plays in all of this, he cited the recent change in the bottle of one brand of scotch. "For years, this whisky was sold in amber glass bottles. But last summer it began to appear in bottles of clear glass. A 1m o s t immediately, sales began to increase. "Now mind you that the whisky is exactly the same. But in the new bottle it looks lighter. "If this keeps up, we'may have to start weighing whisky and selling it by the pound." FOG HIDES ESCAPEES BERLIN (UPI) — Two East Germans slipped safely through barbed wire to West Berlin early Friday under cover of thick fog.

Current Information/ 7 Says President Johnson In Endorsing National Newspaper Week October 10-16 THE WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON October 1, 1965 TO THE NEWSPAPERS OF THE UNITED STATES: It is with both pride and pleasure that I participate in this traditional tribute to our nation's newspapers. Too often taken for granted, America's countless daily and weekly papers have been vital guardians of her time-honored traditions and eloquent spokesmen for the cherished ideals of he ; r freedom-loving people. Taken together, our nation's newspapers constitute the world's most responsible and effective organ of current information. It is up to us to safeguard the freedom of our papers to inquire;, to criticize, to express divergent views and to stand as sentinels for the public wherever the public's business is being transacted. Newspapers and their readers are , partners in. freedom, and if we fail to defend the freedom of our press, we neglect our own. I am confident that Americans everywhere wholeheartedly join me during National Newspaper Week in high recognition of the indispensible role of our free press in the everyday life of our beloved nation. - - (Signed) Lyndon B. Johnson President
