Extra Session in April. It Is understood that congress will be culled totflluT In extra hcksIoii In April. Nearly every llepuhllcun leader In limine mid senate will remain In WohhlugtiHi, however, during the month of March, and so there will be plenty of time to work out policies prior to the enlivening nf the nut itmul legiflatiire, but it should be retiiem lu ittl lu this connection thut the time of nn 11 ' 1 1 11 f 11 1 ?t 111 1 it in during the tlmt month nf its exineiice must Ih' given up to some exlfiit to tlie conslilf ra I mi of iippoiutme tits.

No one know s w nut lines of enlurge niflit of bis dfpurtinc nt Mr. Hoover ln leiiils to follow and no one will know I until his plan of extending the wotk ' bus In-i ll outlined delliiitely. glveti to I the I'n slili tit nnd then to the public, but It can be taken fur grunted thut the new secretary has some Mil. stall 1 tiul thought In hia mind ami thut he will eiuletivnr to put Into his work the energy which carried hi 111 through tin? 1 llelglau relief cuinpulgn, and the umre 1 taxing lulior of udiuinisteriiig the food I mippllf of the I tilted Stutes. 1 lu the summer of 1!'17, when Her bert llisiver begun hi work of direct lug aright the iipiwtltfM nf the Allied cull people. It wilt said that "Herbert Hoover must await the American Judgment day before hi task, a big a one as tudivlduul uiuu bus under taken. Is stumped with approval' or disapproval' seul." It I possible that this word nitty stand today, for the fond man now I about to enter into a new Meld of en deavor, ami hi desire, he snys.

I saw at close ruiige the result of some of hi work when he wa coiiimissioiitiir for the relief 01' llelglutu in the year l'.Hn, and Inter his labor us food administrator lu thr Culled Stale. Interest lu this mini seemingly bus not waned, and the oc casional marked criticism ha kep: company with praise, most of It, how ever, seemingly coining from some of the member nf congress, who u' times were rather kliurp lu their words when llimver did something which did not please them personally. Hoover hits alw4iys been rather Indifferent to criticism, provided he wa sulisfleil In Id own Inlud thut what he Ityeuded to do wa right.

Occupation f Ihe Herman towns of liussftib'if. I'uisl.uit; and Kuhrort In an attempt by the allies to enforce compliance with the terms of repuru tlon was accomplished quietly ami so far no very spectacular results have occurred. It Is true the (icrniMU mil I.n. ml. us to London, Paris and Krus selt Imir been recalled to lierllu, but the move Is not ihuriictei'i.ed a a severame of diplomatic relations; rather. It It more in the nature of protest calculated to have some effect upon the present situation or future negotiations. Such iifiMtiutloti ap pear to be a probability after each side hat sized up the other and de termined ubotit bow fur it Is likely to go. Inasmuch, as the ambassadors have been more closely In touch with con dition In the allied countries than the heads of the Cerinuii government, their counsels arc needed at home ut thi time before (ieriiiauy decides upon the ultimate dcifree of bluff, of capitulation or of resistance which It shall employ. No wurllke preparations have been reported from tlennany and nothing revealing 11 coalesced plan of action among German leader. Omi nous quiet, seems to describe the situ ation, wltli here nnd there a flush possibly presaclni: future action by- one or another of the many faction in the country. Labor, especially the radical wing, I expci'ted to play a prominent part and already there has been talk of a general strike as a pro test, an immediate economic factor and a general bid for the sympathy of wnrkcrs In the allied countries and else u here. The strike weapon would appear to he sort of a Iniiilltlml suicide 0 no tice to the allies Unit "if yon attempt to collect the Indemnities from a In goods or customs, we will ruin our selves Industrially so that there may be no cooil or custom duties avail able." That a protest Mtrlke would continue long la not rejunled nt proh ahle. Its chief value would He In Its effect 011 the I111111. "lisle situation Its Influence upon Kruiice. which needs money and hopes to uet It from the occupied territory mid through the customs bouse which the allies are establishing along the Khlue. The danger that flermuny will so Rolslievlk and unite with Kil-sla seeiiit to be militated iiiisilcrul.ly by the present slate of atfiiirs In the la'ter country where the soviet au thorities lire ctiiitendltig with a size able revolution. The In 11 tfr of Jt iim shin u Id to tiermiiny seems past and the only menace reiimiulng Is that (ieriuany will attempt to give mlMtary assistance to Iliitslu. (Ieriuany has plenty of men, hut after the dis mantling of her military siwer. which already bus occurred under the Ver sailles treaty, the degree of assist ance which she could lend In the way of liluhly essential gun, munitions and wilier Implements of war Is a Uiii'stlon, and the quest Ion vastly con cerns the allies at present ; for any thing like an effective coalition h iwven (ieriuany and Kusslu might mean the relighting of the war torch all over Kuropo, The allies were nut nf unanimous opinion In fordiuc the reparations program, hut they were driven to united action throiiL'h the necessity of showing a solid front. Whatever de velop In tiermauy evi to a Joining with Riisslu. the allies are In a strategic position to ileal with It thniiiKh their military establishment and the fact that thy already are In Certnaii territory and can strike unitedly and quickly. While the threutetied strike of pack ing house employee nil over the I'liited . States against reduction In wiik'e and chiin-'et In hours of em ployment has element nf serious ness, it Is not dWinltely. at this writ ing, beyond settlement. President I lurding's inline nee may bring results, but If It dnet not. there Is a court weapon which Is likely to delay the timl-e ilrasiic eTiftt If It does not stop them entirely. Singularly, this weapon, an Injunction, Is proposed by the employees Instead of, as usually litis l.ei ii thf case, by the employers. Inasmuch us the scale of wage and hour was lived by arbitration durln?' war Mine, the employees contend that 11 sudden nlterinc without due coiisldiriitioii ami conference between all parties affected. Is unwarranted and that the court should crnnt a re st mining order ugnliiM the packer. Attorneys for the unions state that If the order Is refused they will ask that the packing houses be placed In the hands of receiver. Advices are' lo the effect that all liussiu Is In a ferment und thut the Itolshevik authorities, if they have not a real revolution to contend with just now, are likely to have it soon. The past w inter, ; w hlch has augment ed the sufferings of the people to a degree beyond anything before experi enced, the constant warfure under soviet rule and, lastly, the attempt to coerce 'labor mobilize Is the word that has been used und make It a part of the property aif the state along with jtnods, lands, etc., has strained the communist scheme to the breaking point. People all over the country are reported to be dent lily sick of the plan nnd In a mood to try revolution, believing that any chailgo must be an Improvement. Heretofore the strength of the Lenin and Trot.ky government ha existed In It military establishment. Sol dier were fed and clothed even If other starved and froze. This made military duty attractive and rendered a big. efficient army possible. The slgnlMcaut feature of the present rev olution I that it wa started by sol diers and sailors, the very force which started and upheld tha soviet experiment. The revolutionists seized the great fortress of Kroustudt and several of the minor defenses of Petrograd. At this writing a struggle for the city It self I 011 with the deciding fortune still In doubt. Authentic news la meager, hut enough has seeped through to Indicate that the disturb ance I not a mere Hash In the pun. The fact that the attack was aturted at the seat of gm eminent, that the city has I nfii 1'iiiiiliariled heavily and that saiimiluary encounters have taken place In Its streets, also that the lied forces from other part of the country, Including the famed army of ileneral Huilcnny, huve been summoned to It defense, I enoui'h to Indicate that the affair Is a de termined nioiiineiit agulust the whole soviet regime. After the usual formalities attend ant upon the nomination and cuutlrtna tli'ti of cabinet head and a few other Important ofliclals, the new national administration got under way with It announced program of a get togeth er between the executive and legisla tive branches nf the goveruineiit. Thi was started by a dinner at the White House to the Itepuhllcao lead er In the senate and house. Presi dent Harding annoumvd that he con template culling an extra session wf the Slxty-seienth congres not laker than April 11. The fact that peucs with Oer inany, the League nf Nation and oth er questlt'L of foreign relations were not touched upon at the dinner, but that domestic reconstruction problems formed the hulk nf the discussion, make It a practical certainty that the latter will receive first considera tion lit the coming session. Tai re vision seem to have the right of way over other questions and after It come the tariff, the problem being to lessen burdens and at the same time provide adequate revenues. If the excess profits tax ll revealed, economies In governmental expendi tures will have to be instituted and additional revenue from Import and perhaps other source will he re quired. President Hiirding has InMinhted that sn emergency tariff may he pro posed, luit that final disposition of the tariff question will await the rec- nmuiendatlon of a new tariff com mission to be constituted nlong scien tific lines. This commission Is yet to be appointed nnd Its deliberation nec essarily will be prolonged, so thut the ultimate tariff bill of this administra tion doe not loom us a very near pos sibility.

The lettel cover the financial condition lu con siderable detail und wind up with the statement: "The people geuerally must become more Interested in sav ing tlie government's money than In spending It. A thorough going nation al budget system must be estab lished und the government's expenses brought Into relation to Its Income." Kver since Brig. Gen. Charles O. Diiwes announced himself so posi tively before a cnngresslonul commit tee on the subject of unbusiness like methods in the national depart ments, und other matters, there ha been persistent talk that this admin istration would take energetic action to reduce criticism In this respect Accordingly the President has gone over tentative plans with joint com mittee from bouse and aeuate now holding sessions In Washington. The plans which White House advice sttite are approved by the President, and will have the co-operatton of the cabinet, call for a reorganization of the executive departments to sys tematize administration, eliminate duplication and reduce expense. II the program goes through It will be the first shaking up of department since the days of Alexander Hamilton.

A serious question has arise! as to how the democratic privilege may be continued, the White House room given air ami sunshine and the occupants allow ml 11 degree of privacy somen hat greater lluiu thut of a gold fish In a bowl. An Indication of the attitude t President Hurdirg und bis adnuulstra Hon to matters of turbulence among our Latln-Ami'iicBu neighbor was pointedly brought out In strong notes dispatched by Secretary of State Hughes which had the effect of halt ing hostilities between I'osta Rica and Panama.
