Hot Air in Legislative Chambers
Drives Members to Play
Hookey.
By DAVID M. CHURCI.

Congress needs a truant officer.
With Mr. Fahrenheit's mercury plae
ng near the top of the little glass
ube most every day, it is pretty
iard for Congress to stay on the job.
Neither the Senate nor House
:hambers are noted for their cool
sephyrs, and almost any excuse is
pufflefent to plead "official busina3s"
nd draw a "pass" from without the
tortals of thg legislative halls.
Noon Sees Exits.
Early morning finds a large ma
ority of the le'islators on the job.
n the cool of the morning they
'nswer the letters that the "home
olks" write. because if they don't
ceep up wtih the people back home
hey will be told about it in the next
anpaign.
Noon finds a steady stream of
egislators pouring in to answer the
oll calls that inevitably follow the
apening of the sessions.
Fifteen minutes after noon finds
he cooling restaurants of the House
and Senate jammed with legislators.
Aftpr lunch comes the time when
the Congresmional truant officer Is
aeeded. It's pretty bard to stay hn
the stuffy chamber when the tem
perature dances around the 100 sark
and fish rare biting in the Potomua,
mnd the golf courses are swept by
country breeses, and the new motor
ear is hitting 'em on all six. The
brave ones struggle aginst tempts.

they may. What care they If they

sl6on without explanation.
Black at Sundown.
By mid-afternoon both chambers
ire pretty apt to look like a school
room on circus day. A few of the
alathful sit In their chairs and slum
ber peacefully, and a few of the even
more faithful even insist upon carry
ing on debate.
By late afternoon, if an adjourn
ment hasn't been taken, there are
only the "watch dog." left. They are
the unfortunates who are chosen to
remain always on the job to see
that nothing is "ulipped over" in the
ibsonce of the members.
By sundown the members come
stealing beck to their offices, just to
see what has happened and in order
to take care of any stray telegrams
or telephone messages that may have
come in from their constituents.
It's a hard life ths legislators
lead, for temptation to loaf besets
them on all sides during these steam
