Senator Robinson Says
Last Congress Failure
Democratic Leader Says Republicans Failed to Take Ad
vantage of Opportunities and Despite Large Majorities,
Passed Few Lawfe of Vital Importance.
,
Washington, March 3. —An arraign
ment of the Republican party’s record
was made by Senator Robinson, of Ar
kansas, acting Democratic floor lead
er. in a statement tonight reviewing
the administration’s policies and acts,
foreign and domestic. President
Harding and Secretary Hughes were
criticized for alleged failure to adopt
a helpful international policy and the
Republican Congress was assailed for
alleged failures.
“The present administration," said
Stahior Robinson, "is now reaping a
harvest of condemnation and repudi
ation. The legislative and executive
policies advanced by President Hard
ing have broken down. This is at
tributable to the reactionary charac
ter of the policies, and to she irre
gonciliahle factions existing within the
Republican party.”
*No important legislative achieve
ments can he. awarded the 7fith Con-{
gross “with a single exception of the
Fordney-MoOtimher tariff net.” Sena
tor Robinson declared, adding:
"All other important measures en
acted during the Congress noy ex
piring have been of a non-partisan
nature and have, received the support
of the Democrats in both houses of
.. ... - t.. . .
•‘'l'he President’s policies respecting
the two most important subjects pre
sented by him. excluding the British
debt settlement act, have beenojsenly
repudiated by the Congress. 1 refer to
the ship subsidy hill and /flu* message
recommending membership for tlit* i
United States in the pe.ramnent court
of international justice.”
The latter. Senator Robinson said,
hud been "buried by the leaders of
the Rpublican party in the Senate."
"The administration’s foreign pol
icy.” Senator Robinson continued, "is
incomprehensible even to those re
sponsible for it. The. United Stated
in former administrations took ad
vanced positions in the promotion of
arbitration and the establishment of
orderly tribunals for the settlement of
international disputes. Now we are
in the humiliating attithde of facing
backward and standing still while
European peoples in the maze and
confusion of financial and economic
problems which threaten their undoing
are. stumbling and staggering for
ward. 1 ”
Secrecy in Secretary Hughes’ man
agement of foreign, affairs was charg
ed and deplored by Senator Robinson,
who s u'd that Mr. Hughes had discus
sed recently before an organization of
newspaper rne.ii the country’s foreign
relations hut had—refused to appear
before the senate foreign relations
committee. „ ’
"The only justification for enshroud
ing a foreign policy in solemn mys
tery.” said Senator Robinson, "is that
publicity respecting it inevitably
would force a change.
“It has come to a strange state in
deed when the secretary of state will
furnish newspaper is correspondents
with confidential information which
he denied the Senate.”
Ip domestic affairs. Senator Robin
son said. Republicans have “shame
lessly repudiated” pledges for a sol
diers’ bonus and had not acted to re
lieve. farmers and others from exces
sive transportation charges. Repub
lican internal revenue tax revision,
the Democratic leader said, has "re
sulted in relieving the rich ami pros
perous, while through the. Fordney-
McOumber act the taxes paid by the
masses have been enormously in
creased.”
“Thus failure, irretrievably failure,
marks the record of the. administra
tion throughout the last two years,”
said Senator Robinson in conclusion.
During the evening Senator Robin
son delivered his prepared remarks
as an address to flic* Senate.

BOTH HOUSES APPROVE
FAiniHKLP MEASURE
The Bill Will Be Submitted to Presi
dent For Signature This Morning.
Washington, March 3.—Both the
senate and house approved .the con
ference report -on Jhe fpvm credits
bill tonight, amU is ready
for submission to President Harding
when he visits ym capitol prior to
sine die adjournment tomorrow ic
sign bills.
As agreed to in conference uy the
house and senate managers - thy es
sential features of the composite nouse
hi 1 remained unchanged, but broad
er authority was-given to the. private
credit corporations which it would
authorize. Continuation until March,
1924, of the war finance corporation
also would be provided for.
Managers on the part of the house
explained in a formal statement to the
house that the bill as agreed to in con
ference would create two distant and
separate rural credit organizations,
the,federal intermediate credit banks
and tlie national agricultural credit
corporations. The former would be
placed under the control and manage
ment of the federal farm loan board
and the latter undej the supervision
of the comptroller of the currency.
“While the two systems wjll tur
nish relief to the agricultural inter
ests of the country,” the statement
said, “the federal intermediate credit
banks wi 1 more particularly lake
care of the heeds of a certain class
and might come nearer than would
the national agricultural 'credit cor
porations in taking care of the entire
needs of th<‘ general agricultural pin
lie; the national agricultural credit
corporations will make certain the
earing for in a. national way of the
livestock and co-operative marketing
requirements.
“Your managers took into consid
eration also the fact that the national
agricultural credit coporations will be
organized along the same lines that
national banks are organized, namely,
by private subscription to capital and,
secondly, that the acceptances
col ateral trust notes or debentures 1 '
issued by them undm* the provisions of
the act carry no tax exception
privileges, whereas federal inter
mediate credit hanks are capitalized
by the United States government and
are permitted to issue tax free
debentures.”

DEMONSTRATE DEVOTION
Men Who Got Basis of Success There
I Expected Answer Call in Hour
of Need.
| Hickory, X. <!.. March s.—“ Lenoir’s
* boys and girts are going to show
North Carolina what loyalty to a col
lege. means,” says John George, cotton
mill man, of Cherryville, in reference
to the great reunion of Lenoir Coi
|loge alumni and former students to he
(held in Hickory, Wednesday, March 7.
•It is expected that the home coming
j will surpass in point of numbers and
iin enthusiasm any gathering of for
jmor Lenoiiians yet held.’ Trains will
jbear the returning sons and dangh
j ters from every portion of the Old
| North State and from many more d!s
I taut sections ol the country,
j “'l’he strength of a college,” eon
! tinues Mr. George, "is in the success
of its graduates, and the ends of the.
earth hear testimony to the exalted
posit'on of honor which is the birth
right of Lenoir. Lenoir has ever been
tt good school hut never a famous one.
It lias unassumingly traveled its quiet
path for many years, turning out men
and women who have achieved honor
through service to mankind. Now the
day has come when it need no longer
limit its-great service to the hoys and
girls <jf North Carolina through a
lack of means. With the dynamic force
that will carry on to victory three
thousand men and women whose lives
i have, passed under Lenoir’s influence
are getting into the game to insure
that their alma mater attains a com
manding position in the educational
field."
The home coming will he a dedica
tion of purpose that Lenoir College,
shall grasp the opportunity offered-to
it this spring to become the out-stand
ing Lutheran college l in the South, and
to multiply the gretit influence it his
had in shaping* the. present life of
North Carolina. The program of the
meeting Wednesday morning includes
inspirational addresses by prominent
alumni arid others, music by the Le
noir Men’s Glee Club, and the showing
of the, famous Wittenberg Film, which
hears the distinction of being the first
college trim produced in America, and
which pictures the phenomenal growth ‘
and development of Wittenberg Col
lege and the unselfish and loyal devo
tion of her. alumni in rallying to her
standard.
Lenoir lias neveji been a school for
rich men’s boys and girls, nor one
which has been a fra hi to face tho facts
of life. Her sons and daughters learn j
to work uncomplainingly, and go out
to achieve success in lives of service.
Forty per cent, of all the men who
hare gone out from her halls have
entered the ministry and are serving
Christ in the ffriir corners of the
earth, twenty-eight vuuug men uqw
in school are preparing for the same
work. Lenoir further enjoys the dis
tinction of having provided a larger
per cent of the mission workers in
Japan than any other portion of the
United I,uthe.rau Cnureli. f
“The call of the Mother lias gone
out, - to her children in far places to
rally about her in her hour of test
and share with her the joy of triumph,,
and her children will not fail,” says
Rev. John L. Morgan, in charge, of the
Alumni division of the Appeal, who
traveled 50 miles to school some years
ago with sl3 in his poTket to see him
through four years*of college, and who
is now the successful pastor of three,
