^ the nation nnder the NRA. Con-
BSMsman Walter Lambeth, ot

rather than weaken it.
“Recently a feeling has gradu-

diagnosis over the NRA,” the
representative said. ‘‘The various
doctors have not agreed among
ttemselves. Some maintain that
the case Is hopeless, others think
that certain operations should be
performed, still others Insist that
the patient is progressing . .
“The NRA was the spearhead
mt tile new deal attack upon the
depression,” Mjp. Lambeth stated.
“The first year of NRA was
aharacterized by an intense sell
