The big drive is on In Congress
for action on legislation that may
have the effect of virtually re
shaping national affairs. The fact
that this drive is along many
fronts and Is wthout the noise of
verbal "big guns" does not lessen
its significance. And "behind the
scenes" is much feeling as legis
lative generals map plans, form
their lines, and prepare for the
"zero hour" of voting on meas
ures that affect all our citizens.
The situation in Congress is all
the more acute because Congres
sional procedure is naurally af
fected by the acts of the legisla
ture and judicial branches of the
Government. What will be the
final Government policy with re
gard to the sit-down strikers that
may cause concern in the South?

What changes, if any will be made
In the President's court plan be
fore it comes up in Congress for
a vote? What will the Supreme
Court do with regard to the Labor
Relations Act* which is certain to
influence action on the court
plan? Not even the most optimis
tic member of Congress will at
tempt to answer these questions
today. And they must be an
swered before the present uncer
tainty in Congress gives way to
certainty—that is before the ob
-1 Jective of the "big drive" is clear.
As a result, members of Con
gress are unable to give satisfac
tory answers to many questions
raised constituents. They are
unable to hazard a guess as to
what will be done about this or
that. They find it difficult to form
their own final decisions.
| The reason is simple. It is be
cause factors outside of Congress
are perhaps more than ever before
having a strong effect on legisla
tion. In other words, conditions
that are acute today my become,
.less serious tomorrow and make
I drastic legislation unnecessary.
However, they may become more
serious and require swift move
ment in the "big drive."
Whatever else may be said, it
can be stated that the President
is keenly alive to the situation and
his record for action clearly indi
cates that he will be ready to
move at a moment's notice. The
fact that all his plans have not
been discussed does not minimize
their sweeping character. It has
been amply demonstated that our
people by and large have confi
dence to the President's recom
mendations and that the Con
gress, to the final analysis, will be
in accord with his more import
ant policies. This will be more
In evidence during the weeks
Our people should not be alarm
ed by the evidences of the pres
ent uncertainty to the legislative
branch of the Government. It is
Ito reality a most hopeful sign. It
indicates that members of Con
gress are studying and weighing
the various proposals. It is a sign
that members have the courage of
their own convictions as to what |
is best for the country. And it is a j
refreshing indication that this is
not a "rubber stamp" Congress.
With it all is new evidence that
the day of temporary expedients
to meet emergencies is over. The
mere fact that the Congress is
moving slowly toward final ob
jectives is really a hopeful sign—
a sign that the experience of the
last decade and all the lessons

learned are not being forgotten.
That in Itself, should allay many
fears with regard to Federal ac
tivities to the future.
