SPEAKER CLARK
HAS WAY FOR A
BURST OF SPEEI
Congressional Time Cai
Be Saved, Also Money,
by Cutting Gallery
and the Record.
ORATORS ARE POSINC
Try to Make Effect an<
Talk More Than They
Should to Get It
Taken Down.
| WASHINGTON, Doc. 16.?Speak
er Clark said today if Congrcs
wanted to clean the logiBlatlv
slate and go home next March 4
he glRdly would Join in a movemcn
to eliminate useless oratory by cut
ting down gallery space and abol
Ish the Congressional Record and tl
Introduce voting machines.
"It Isn't difficult to see that thi
galleries and the Record cituse ai
awful waste of time and money,'
the speaker declared today as hi
paused tn his efforts to outline t
plan whereby a session's work cat
be done In 63 legislative days.
"Any time that the galleries an
full the orators on the lloor an
posing and wasting time. And ev
crybody knows iherc nre any numbe:
of Congressmen who talk for tin
Record a great deal more than is ne
cessary.
"The Record- is not necessary. Th<
English House of Commons hai
none. A journal is kept. I)r. John
son used to write it after the day'i
proceedings were over. He simplj
recorded who spoke and which side
they were on.
"1 haven't much hope, though
that I'd receive much support if ]
started to make n fight for smaller
galleries and no Record, so I won'l
start it. But there is hope that the
present method of taking roll call:
will be abolished. It is archaic
and a time waster."
The Speaker also favors reducing
the House from 435 to 300 member,
and holding it to that number.
Minority Render Mann expressed
the view, and offered figures to sub
c.'aatlatc It, that under no circum
stances could the Democrats have
u majority in the next House, but
that there was a chance for the
Republicans to have 218 members.
He further said he was not wor
rying about the Speakership and
thought it would be much more fun
to remain on his present job.
