first session of the 75th Congress
is now at the point of adjourn
ment as the 150 th anniversary of
the Nation is about to be cele
brated by the observation of the
Sesqulcentennial. it will go down
in political history not so much
for what it has done as for what
it refused to do.
It refused to grant power to the
President to enlarge the Supreme
Court, and now its members are
anxious to get back home and put
their ears to the ground, to find
out whether their constituents will
stand by them, or whether the

All of the Representatives and
a third of the Senators come up
for reelection next year. In the
Southern states, where victory at
the Democratic primaries has al
ways been tantamount to election,
they have only half a year or so
in which to build their fences be
fore the Spring primaries.
That is one reason for opposi
tion to the suggested recess until
October, so that the Administra
tion's proposals could be cleared
off the slate and the road cleared
for the big business of the second
session, which is tax revision. An
other reason is that if they took a

Future of New Deal
The whole future of the New
Deal is wrapped up in the answer
to the question whether the elec
torate still stands overwhelmingly
behind the President or backs up
Congress in its bid for independ
ence. Thus the second session of
this Congress may well be of even
greater political importance than
the first has been.
The one chance of something
like harmony, shrewd observers
here believe, is that the fortunes
of the United States may become
so involved in the war situation in
Asia as to focus public interest
and attention upon the war to the
exclusion of all domestic matters.
Nobody publicly goes so far as to
even breathe the possibility that
the United States may have to
take a hand—on China's side —in
the conflict between Japan and
But it is known that the State
Department is very much con
cerned, the Navy is recruiting up
to war strength and concentrating
fighting ships, munitions and
supplies at our Pacific naval
bases, the Army and the Maripe
Corps are getting into fighting
trim and the Government is rush
ing its new military airplane pro
gram, in its own factories and
those of private contractors.
Add those facts up to the cer
tainty that the "cash-and-carry"
provisions of the Pittman Neu
trality Resolution gave Japan all
the advantage, the fact that the
people of the Pacific coast and
Hawaii still fear Japan as an ene
my getting ready to strike without
warning, the recent expressions
from Filipino leaders regretting
their impulsive demand for inde
pendence and begging Uncle Sam
not to leave them at Japan's mer
cy, and the traditional policy of
America to do all in its power to
maintain the integrity of China,
and you have the makings of a
pretty little war scare.
Odds Against Japan
Some observers of international
affairs here believe that Great
Britain is similarly concerned over
the China-Japanese situation and
that that is why the British gov
ernment has been making over
tures to Mussolini, designed to re-

East, which are distinctly in Chi
r na and opposed to Japan's.
Should it come to a showdown,
■ it is regarded as certain here that
the United States and Great Bri
| tain would be found standing
shoulder to shoulder on the side
of China and against Japan.
But even a series of events such
as would lead up to such demon
stration would have a decidedly
jittery effect upon the American
people, and would quite certainly
focus the attention of Congress
and the Administration, to the ex
clusion of almost everything else.
Labor Party In 1940
The political effect of a foreign
war or war scare has, historically,
always been to harmonize the
American people and make them
forget their political differences
for the time being. Likewise, it
has always been to exalt the Ad
ministration then in office, and
the President, who, under the
Constitution, is Commander-in
Chief of the Army and Navy.
It would be a scandalous over
statement to say that anybody in
Washington is hopeful that such
a war situation will develop; the
precise contrasy is more nearly
true. But it is a contingency
which is getting serious attention
from many of the ablest political

ning to take on political aspects,

of 1940 in the offing. The retire
ment of Mr. Roosevelt's friend,
Major George L. Berry, U. S. Sen
ator from Tennessee from the
presidency of Labor's non-Parti
san League, and the election of
John L. Lewis to succeed him, is
regarded here as a move toward
putting a new Labor Party into
the field in 1940.
That Lewis will be its candidate
is regarded as doubtful, but he
will be the dominant force.
