either just before olrctlen te pnss the
Tariff Hill or Just nfter election, if by

of the two houses enn make n hur

The desire te get home is tremen

took office. The cnmpnlgti is nbeut te

Hiic u considerable number of Scnnters
feel nn imperative need te get back

There Is no walkover this jenr. Issues
hne net yet taken shape nnd every
one is doubtful nbeut the state of mind
of thp voters.
With the withdrawal by President
Harding of his demand that th" Ship
Subsidy bill be ncted upon beferee elec

the bonus remains before Cengiess.
Nothing Is te be done except pass the
Benus Bill nnd the Tariff Bill nnd go

important question of details remains te

the Senate will be ready for n vote. A
decision upon it can be reached in n

The Senators who nre up for re-election
merely wish te tell their con

President Harding Is expected te veto

The industrial sltuntien Is n mere

While the anthracite nnd the railroad
strikes remain unsettled It Is hard for
Congress te get nwny. If the Ad
ministration takes nctlen It intends te
make Congress share the responsibility,
'i'he talk In the Senate yesteiday

are up for re-ek'(tlen want their con

eer. it was desired thnt the railroad
executives nnd the nnthrncltp operators
should undei stand that Congress was
growing restive und might insist upon

might make them nmenable te rensen In
