(JALVASEyA MEDICINE CO ilESfPlflS WASHINGTON PUTS ON INAUGURAL AIR Capital Expects Session of Congress To Be More :- ' Productive. ;' : BY DAVID LAWRENCE, ', (Special Correspondent of Th Nswi SoimiUr.) WASHINGTON, Dec., '!; 7. This might as well be called inaugural week in the national capital . The festivities and ceremony will come on March 4,but to all intents and purposes, the arrival or Fresiaent elsct Harding marks' the beginning of the new regime. The Republi cans are already In control of both houses of congress and are fully or ganized so they need only take their cue for the present session from the new leader of the party. When i Mr. Harding, moreover, ap points his cabinet, the new heads of the departments will be able to get familiar with the executive bureaus of the government without waiting for March 4. But- the important thing about this week is the spirit with which the Republicans are ap proaching their new responsibilities. They realize that much progress can be made by way of public hearings and committee meetings in formu-v latlng a basic program of legislation for the extra session of congress to be called by Mr. ' Harding immedi ately after he takes the oath ofof floe. - . There is already a disposition on the part of the Democrats to defer to the Republicans and to put no ob structions in their path. Thus the session of congress which has Just opened may be morn productive than wn- first anticipated. The tragedy of the White House is the single cloud that overhangs Washington as. the. new -congress convenes. Few people know how the president is getting along.' Only the veguest kind, of information comes from the White House, chiefly be cause there is little to tell. . Mr. Wijson1 drifts along with a minimum of works and a maximum of rest and quiet. He is more soli tary than ever. He holds few con ferences, sees his cabinet officers rarely and transacts business in the inner sanctum without anv outward evidence. His recommendations to congress are made up by his cabinet officers who are really running the government. Sympathy for the president Is growing as he struggles to overcome obstacles of IN, health and finish out his term. He is said to be in much better condition than a year ago and better able to func tion as head of the government than he was. But he is necessarily' in active. His tndominttiible will re mains with him. (Copyright, 120. by David Law-" ! re nee.) AGED PHYSICIAN DIES MONDAY OF PNEUMONIA Dr. Cyrus M.
