But the Norris amendment, be sides n'xjlishing ' lame duck” sessions of congress, changed the presidential inauguration date from March 4 to Jan 20 Thus this half term has been the shortest in the country’s history. Despite the three weeks lopped off it. however, it has been long enough for a lot of things to happen.

Worn threads ol speculation snapped Saturday by the court’s announcement that it will announce no opinions Monday , were spun together again quickly here. The possibility ol a gold ruling Tuesday was suggestco by the fact that all markets in thi: country will U closed. This would -give the gov -ernraent 24 hours to take steps to meet, any situation arising from a verdict. Some officials, who declined to be quoted by name, expressed con cern. however, over advantages which such timing ol the decision might give foreign speculators. They pointed out foreign markets will operate as usual Tuesday and some of the exchanges overseas will open tire next day five hours ahead of those ir the United States.

The house voted Allred complete control but pending senate amend ments would divide the power among the governor, lieutenant governor and speaker of the house. Split ap pointments were urged on asserted fear complete control by the admin istration might lead to formation of a political machine. Sponrors of the bill, Representa tive George Mofett of Chillicothe and Senator Ben G. O Neal of Wich ita Falls, denied the bill would vest such power in the board. After a conference with Major E. A. Wood of Dallas, consultant for the present semi-official board, ap pointed by Governor Miriam A. Fer guson. they emphasized It would not control construction expenditures, but would be ' purely an advlstory board." | It would, they said coniine activ ! ities to planning for conservation j of natural resources and develop ment of industries to reduce un employment and would have very little connection with the public building program. ' Sharing senate interest was a Tight against confirmation of Allred a ; nomination of Representative Sarah T Hughes of Dallas, as judge of the 14th district court. An executive session will be sought for final ac tion. The issue developed into more than a local matter as 112 represen tatives and women's organizations petitioned the senate for favorable action.
