Washington, July 9.—Under strict
orders from the President, Congress
is going to stay in session until it
either passes his tax program or gets
Into such a tangle of debate as to

Nobody can forecast with cer
tainty which of those two things
will happen. It can be set down as,
a certainty, however, that many of
the members of both parties in both
Houses are resentful. It isn't only
that they don't like to be kept in
Washington through the hot weath
er. That has happened before.
The special session that President
Hoover called in April, 1929, sat until
November. What is annoying the
legislators is the feeling that a
measure of such tremendous im
portance, so many social
and economic questions, and run
ning so contrary to principles of tax
ation that have heretofore prevailed,
ought not to be rushed through
without giving the country at large
plenty of time to talk about it and
think it over and express its reac
It is not too much to say that if
the President did not hold the whip,
which Congress handed him last
Spring, the * four billion dollar
work relief fund, which he can allot
among states and districts in any
way he pleases, the revolt would be
an open one. So far, however, the
disgruntled Senators and Represen
tatives are mostly talking it out in
private mutterings in the cloak
How They Are Figuring
There is no disinclination to im
pose higher taxes upon very large
incomes and upon great estates in
process of transmission from dead
hands to living ones. This "pay
as-you-leave" scheme has a good
deal that commends it in principle
to those who are impressed with
the importance of finding, new
sources of Federal Revenue. Some
new tax plan must be evolved if
the Federal Budget is ever going
to be balanced. But there is great
doubts in the minds of some states
men-like members of both Houses
as to whether the Presidential pro
ject could actually produce enough
new revenue to make any appre
ciable dent in the deficit.
A wide-spread, thorough and
carefully considered revision of all
of the income, estate, gift and in
heritance taxes would have support
not only from practically all of the
Democratic members but from a
large percentage of the Republican
members as well.
Senator Vandenberg, of Michi
gan, who is still regarded as one of
the most likely prospects for the
Republican Party nomination next
year, has declared himself in favor
of a complete income tax revision,
but one set up on a much broader
base than the present law. Instead
of trying to get all the additional
revenue from the few very 1 wealthy,
Senator Vandenberg would carry
the income tax much father down
the line than the schedules now go.
. The strongest indication tfyat the
entire Democratic representation is
not ih complete accord with the
President, even though it obeys or
ders fairly well, was given when
the House voted down the "death
sentence" for public utility holding
companies, in the face of strong
est pressure by the Administration's
spokesmen that has yet been ex
See 193G Issues Forming
The issues on which next year's
Presidential election will be con
tested' are becoming more sharply
defined from week to week. It is
generally accepted here in Wash
ington that the Administration is
moving deliberately toward building
up public sentiment in favor of more
or less revision of the Constitution.
This belief is based upon the Ad
ministration's insistence upon the
enactment of laws which are almost
unanimously regarded as unconsti
tutional, such as the Wagner Labor
Disputes Act and the Quffey Soft
Coal Regulation Bill.
Somebody blundered in the Soft
Coal situation. The coal miner?
had agreed to postpone their
threatened strike until July 1, in
exchange for an agreement by thvj
President that he would push the
Quffey Bill through.
It was not until Friday night,
June 28, that the President learned

There were hasty midnight con
ferences at the White House and at
the home of Madam Perkins, Sec
retary of Labor, and a new truce was
agreed upon until August 1.
New Bills May Appear
The extended session is going to
give a chance for further discus
sion and probably the passage of
jgeveral measures that seemed to
have been shelve® a few weeks ago.
The Frazier-Lemke Bill, for the re
financing of farm loans by an issue
of greenback currency is one that
aeems most likely to pass both
Houses. The bonus bloc will put
up a terrific fight to tack the bonus
payment onto whatever new tax
bill may come up. There will prob
ably be pressure for more inflation
ary silver legislation and the Rail
road Pension Bill probably will be
brought forward again.
The internal confusion of the
Work Relief program is getting
worse instead of better. Not
enough projects have yet been ap
proved to take care of more than
a trifling fraction of those now on
