additional acres of idle land to work
growing profitable crops of trees.”
This is -of great importance to the

Washington—The Senate last week
’came to a log-jam as the debate on
pending legislation continued,
i Debate
{ Sleepy-eyed Senators remained near
] the Senate chamber as the debate con
tinued around the clock. The Serg
! eant-at-Arms kept a ready eye alert
ed to round up the absentees in the
.event of a quorum call or a roll call.
The atmosphere was tense. The Seri- 1
ate was locked in continuing debatej
Jon the bill to amend the Atomic Ener- 1
Igy Act of 1946. The Majority I.ead-j
•er ordered cots placed in the rooms'
'adjacent to the floor. My colleagues
I removed their ties, stretched out for
| a short nap on the cots, and soon
'there was a chorus of legislative
A record of 54 hours of continuous
’ session was set by the Senate in 1916.
. The longest session last year was
■ " slightly over 22 hours on the tide
: lands oil Dill. This is possible as the
■ United States Senate is the only for
um in the world where debate is un
: limited.
The Issue
I believe the President made a mis
take in the way the present proposal i
■ was handled. I voted for the amend
ment to let private industry build the
steam generating plant in Arkansas
ather then TVA. My position is that
TVA has done a good job in the Ten
nessee Valley, but that it should not;
compete with private industry when ;
j private enterprise can supply the same
1 power at competitive rates. It seems j
unreasonable for the taxpayers of oth
ij er sections of the country to have to!
i pay for a steam generating plant for,
• a special section of the country. 11
voted for Senator Ed Johnson’s
amendment to enable the AEC to dis
pose of excess power because I feel
' that the AEC program has been built
; up at the taxpayers’ expense and that j
. the public should benefit from it for
; peaceful purposes.
This debate saw every parliament
. ary maneuver imaginable used. It is
■ interesting to observe the extended de-
bate at first hand. No Senator dares
yield the floor before carefully sur
veying the situation. Speechs usual
ly run from four to six hours. Under
the rules, a member can speak indefi
nitely on each amendment, so the test
of endurance depends on physical
stamina. The Senate Restaurant stay
ed open. Coffee consumption ran
high. Nerves and tempers were strain
ed. One of the reporters of debate
. was stricken at his desk. These re
porters take down in shorthand every
word spoken on the floor for the Con
gressional Record. There is no chance
to get the session concluded by July
31. There is too much important leg
islation on the schedule awaiting ac
tion to expect the end so soon. Any
way, the Senate is air-conditioned, and
the weather outside doesn’t have too
' much to do with it because it was
hotter in the Senate chamber than the
; temperature would indicate. It was
the kind of heat that honest men gen
erate when greatly divided on basis
issues. It is the kind of thing that
l democracy guarantees and that the
! enemies of our government distrust —
freedom of speech!
