sponsor of the resolutions along
with many other Senate mem
Relieve Economic Distress
The resolutions seek to spur
action on present military and ci
vilian construction projects in or
der to relieve unemployment.
Funds have already been appro
priated for these varied and wide
ly scattered projects, but it is
felt that actual work on these
should be speeded up.
Support by both Democrats and j
Republicans shows unwillingness I
by Congress to accept the Ad-'
ministration viewpoint of waiting
longer before taking action of this’
One resolution deals with ci
vilian construction and the other
with military projects. Except
for the designation of civil and
the wording of the two
is identical. They read as fol
“Resolved by the Senate (the
House of Representatives concur
ring), That since there is substan

As Senator Johnson said in in

pointed out that while we can
grant authority and make appro
