Praises The Way Senate and House
Conducted Business During The
Recent Session
(By Associated Press)
PAUL SMITH'S, New York, July 9.
-Within the recollection of President
Coolidge there has never been a time
which favors greater harmony be-
tween the legislative and executive
branches of the government than
within the period since he came into
office as chief magistrate."
Moreover, in the opinion of Mr.
Coolidge, it would be difficult for the
Senate and the House to be conduct-
ed better than at the recent session
of Congress from the standpoint of
constructive legislation produced with
less time spent in needless debate.
The President's views were set
forth today at a conference of news-
paper correspondents with the official
spokesman at the summer White
House in the Adirondacks.
With the explanation that It was not
desired to take all the glory for the
President in referring to the records
of Congress, it was said that the Sen-
ate and House had functioned as, leg-
islative bodies without being con-
stantly forced into some position by
the chief executive.
The Republican leader in the Senate,
great credit by the spokesman for his
Senator Curtis of Kansas, was given
direction of difficult situations.
Speaker Longworth and Representa-
tive Tilson of Connecticut, the Repub-
lican floor leader of the House, were
mentioned also as giving invaluable
support to the President during the
session of Congress just closed.
Turning to other questions of gov-
ernment, the spokesman for the Presi-
dent said Mr. Coolidge knew little of
the appointment yesterday of Briga-
dier-general Albert C. Dalton, to be
president of the fleet corporation. As
for ,the plan of the shipping board to
offer the United States line and other
government merchant routesfor sale,
It was said there was nothing the
President could add to his messageto
Congress which had dealt with the
It was the desire of the President,
it was made clear, that as many lines
as possible be in the hands of private
American operators.

Fascisti Decide
To End Election
ROME, July 9,-(A.P.)-The fasist
government, in an effort to ward off
internal political strife, has decided
to suspend indefinitely all provincial,
communal and municipal elections.
In well informed circies, it is be-
lieved that this decision is a forerun-
ner of considerable extension of the,
"prodesta" system which already has
been installed in four-fifths. of the na-
tions communes. By this system,
communal administrations have been
abolished and have been replaced by
an individual public official directly
responsible to Rome.
The object of the suspension of elec-
tions is to concentrate every bit of
national energy for the struggle to
improve Italy's ecomonic situation.
This drastic step will be taken it was
learned semiofficially, because the cab-,
inets recent economy campaign hasl
not served to check the polemics ofa
local political leaders, who have been]
clamoring for new elections.a
