Comlplet [ion,
'WPhrO'.ton, Aug. 27.-The exact
.scope of the administration's policy
in dealing with the rail and coal
strikes is expected to reveal itself
within the next few days as a result
of preparations for legislative 'and
executive action which appeared to
ijight to be nearing completion.
Whether the emergency legislation
to be definitely urged u':.on Congress
will include ait presidential authoriza
tion to take over and o)erate rail and
coal properties was a question that
still remained unanswered, but it was
indicated that administration ofilcials
probably would make a final decigion
on the point in the very near future.
Inl soie quarters it was believed
that the proiiosal to arm the executive
with these emnergency powers would
be tinally threshed over among , the
leaders who are with President ard
Ing on his week-end cruise down the
14otomac aniid that defiuite announce
mnit of !;olicy would follow the re
turn heie of. the presidential yacht
'.\layiower' toimorrow morning.
''lhose in tile president's c-ollidence
sa141 befu;f( lie left iecre for the crtuise
last night that althoughI he still be
lieved infdustrial peace would be re
stored without a resort to government
operation, lie was inclined to feel that
as a pr (cautionary measure he should
be given full authority to act before
congress begins its contemplated re
In addition to Secretary Hoover and
Attorney General Daugherty, two of
the cabinet mensbers who have been
particularly active in shaving the. gov
ernient's course during the strike
period, the president was acconpan
led on the '.\layflower by Chairman
Cummins, of the senate interstate
commerce committee, who already has
drafted for introduction in the senate,
a bill authorizing the executive to take
over and operate any individual rail
road which does not adequately per
form its functions as a common car
ried. 'Before he went aboard the May
flower, Senator Cummins had indicat
ed that his measure and a R1 ar one
relating to coal mines would , form
ally introduced early this ween.
Majority leaders say they are con
tidentltlat such legislation - could be
-passed through both senate and house,
if the uresident defluitely requested
it, but at the same time they concede
that congressional approval }vould be
by no means unanimous - Although
many 'members in both bodies are de
manding that the government take
charge of the situation in the most em
phatic manner possible, there is a
recognized elemenht of strength ranged
against any movement that might ap
proweimate a return of the war-time
government railroad administration.
Particular atten4tion was given. in
congressional circles today to the puib
lie statement made last night by
Chairman .Winslow, of the house in
terstate pommierce committee, declar'
ing that in his opinlon the coal fact
'finding and distribUtion bills8 already
pending wvould serve as a sufficient
warning to the industries involved,
and that more drastic legislation could
safely be 'withhold for the present. It
was pointed out also that President
.Harding's recommendation for a coal
puIrchasing andl selling agency had
thus far not even resulted in any ef
fort to bring in 'bills for carrying it
*into effect, and that even the fact-find
ing and distribution bills ,erop6sed had
not encountered perfect sailing weath
er either in' senate or house.
The senate having lAid aside the
lBorah fact-finding bill entirely' until
*th6 middle of the week because of
rprolonged attacks upon it, efforts to

ends of the capital tomorr'ow wvll be
