Difdon, Ala.-In recommending Thed

neighbors here, Mrs. T. F. Parks, a well
known Jackson County lady, said: "I am

for years-one that can be depended up
on and one that will do the wQrk.

"As -to razors, Senator 'McCumber

certain grades coming from Germany

many American stores. I-H asserted
that these razors not only could not be
used for shaving, but would "not ev

It -is recognized that if action is
postponed unt'll after the elections
the situation woul'd not 'be favorable.
The house has nothing to do and
could easily act promptly if the rules
committee would assist. The Ameri
can farm 'bureau federation, ardently
supporting the Ford offer, has ad
dressed letters to its secretaries in
all states urging a drive 'against con
gress by letter and telegram. If pres
sure is sufliciently intense, the house
may act, it is pointed out. As to
whether or not completed action can
-be had is doubtful. The senate agri
cultural committee has not complet
ed its investigation. The indication
is that whatever 'action is taken by
the house will be referred to the
senate committee and that for the
house .bill, a committee bill will be
substituted. Ini all probabil'Ity Sena
tor Norris' scheme of government
operation will be sent to the senate as
a substitute. Friends of Ford in the
senate will, of course, 'fight the Nor

Impossible that any Muscle Shoals

POWER OF STATES
Borah Describes EfYorts by Congress.
Writes to Editor.
Washington, June 1.-The Ameri
can pecoile should -be given lhe oppor
tunity, by submission of a constitu
tionaji amendment,*'Senator Borah (Re
publcan) of Idaho, declared in a let
ter made public tonight, to decide
whether they desire to "wipe out state
limns" and give congress power to pas.
child labor, anti-lynching and simi
lar laws dealing with state affairs.
"Year after year congress is lash
ed into passing lawr which are mani
festly unconstitutional," said Senator
Borah In a letter on the anti-lyncling
bill, "aInd it has come to be a settled
principle app~arently' that congress
shlold disregard tihe constitution and
!'ave tile supremefl court alone to l)ro
teet it. To my *zinn; such a rule is
.co r'tterly shlameleSs, so0 uit.irly intol
erable that It is startling that it
shlould 'be even sJeasmlodically urged."
Decploring mob violen~ce, Scnator

Boston Transcript said that tihe anti
lynchling bill, prov'iding federal pun
ishment for ofmlers of tile law wh~o

"Ini other words, all thlese andl many
cther subjects and proniosit: i with
walen'I congress is 'irgd" ic dhal,' said
Senator florah, "are not within the
competency of congress as the con
stitution now stands. If the people
of this country have mlade 'up their
minds to deal Withl all these 'matters
through congress, then why not give
congress the ipower to do so rather
than urge a course whlich involves the
lowvest form of constitutional immor
"I urge,, therefore, that there is
undlerlying these questions the grav
est constitutional pirOblem wh'ich we
as a deople could have presented. But
If tile change is to -be had it is better
Ito change it openly and candlidly and
intelligently than to longer pur'sue tihe
Vn~effeotivQ, iruitlsss, demoraliwing
method which we are now pursuing."
That lhe wvould oppose. suchl a conlsti
t-utional change 'wtas indicated by Sen
ator Borah, who argued that c6ngress
shlould not 'be placed in a p)osition
"'where it Is constantly and chronically
