Throughout the session, attiacting
as much attention as the actual work'
of legislation, will run the prepara?
tory work for the extra session, to be
tailed soon after President-elect Wil
Baa takes ifflo. Match 4.
Committees, pursuant to this, will
thresh out question* of tariff, currency

Democratic policies shaped and Demo- ;
cratlc plans made, before the new ad?

the currency or antitrust problems will,
receive much attention in the lio .e.
