DE PRIEST ADDS A $40,000 ITEM
AIDING HOWARD U
Congressman Causes Appropriation
Bill To Be Sent Back For
Additional Sum For Heating
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 —(ANP)
Altho Congressman Oscar “Ignoramus”
DePriest, as some of his political enem
ies like to call him while bewailing the
absence of a Negro intellectual in Con
gress, may be short on the qualifica
tions for ec liege degree, he demonstrat
er here Tursday that he knows how to
get what he wants—and how.
Item Not Included
The Interior Department appropria
tion supply till came up before the
House of Represeneatives Tursday,
calling for an outlay of $43,192,904, in- ^
eluding $8,000,000 for the Hoover Dam
from which Nrgro were long excluded
a» workers.
Howard university receives its sup- ;
ports out of the In’.erior Department
Budget. It has repeatedly been set nut
that the university is in need of new j
heating plant. The item for the plant
was cut out last year. When the meas
ure came up Thursday and was ready
for passage, Congressman DePriest im- |
mediately moved that the bill be sent
back to the appropriations committee
with instruction to insert and item of
$460,000 for Howard's heating plant. j
Rep. Byms if Tennessee, chairman j
of the committee protested vehement- j
tly against such ac'ion. He wanted the i
bills to oe passed even ^
boys and girls had to f° C°M.
DePriest Is On Job
But even though Mr. DePriest did
not go to college, he knows hew to
count up the three hundred, consider -
adly beyond the quorum limti of the
House. He glanced around the House
and counted the members on his fingers
His count shewed that (here were not
enough members in the house at the
time to compose a quorum.
Mr. DePriest (hereupon demanded
an official count and the number came
to only 205 ten less than a quorum. A
Harvard graduate could not have
counted better than the Illinois con
gressman.
The Interior Department supply bill
was thus barred until somebody decid
ed to do something about warming up
the school rooms at Howard.
After Mr. DcPricst's action, Speaker
Gamer announced that he would move
to arrest members who are not present
a< next Tuesday's session in order to
; be able to complete a quorum.
