3mall Appoints Smith To Fill Vacancy
In Senate; Issues Call For
Special Election
(BY Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.-Congress
treated itself to another foretaste of
the coming presidential campaign to-
day, both house's taking a fling at
political sparring; but it got in a lot
of solid legislative achievement.
The Senate spent most of the day on
antl-third term resolution but failed
to reach a vote. The 1-ouse got the
army bill for a passage tomorrow,
but paused half an hour to indulge in
a xordy clash over usecof American
ammed forces in foreign countries. In
the end, it turned down an amend-
ment to require congressional sanc-
tion before doughboys leave American
Incidentally, the House added $5,-
000000 to the rivers and 'harbors ap-
propriation of $50,000,000 in order to
pay the cost of river surveys outside
the regular lump sum provision.
As an interlude to the Senate's day
of political conversations and legisla-
tion almost without debate, another
,senatorial headpiece came hurdling in-
to the Republican presidential nomin-
ation ring. It was the large black
slouch hat, of approved political
model, worn by "Jim" Watson, of In-
diana. The Indianans in Congress
hailed it with cheers and demanded
nationwide support for their favorite
Fess Livens Debate
The third term debate was enlivened
by a long speech by Fess, of Ohio,
holding that President Coolidge, de-
spite his "I do not choose" statement,
could with propriety accept the Re-
publican nomination if tendered him.
Reed, Democrat, Missouri, finally
challenged Fess to 'say whether or not
the President would accept the nom-
"I do not know," the Ohioan admit-
ted. Heflin, of Alabama, closed the
day's debate with a declaration that
the Senate "should pack up the
Pres idemnt."
"He says he does not chose' to run,"
Heflin said. "We should say, as
unanimously as possible, that we do
not choose for him to run."
Senator Robinson, of Arkansas, the
Democratic leader, got through, 68
to 1, his resolution for an inquiry of
the imterstate commerce commission
as to whether it favors sectional pro-
duce in making rail rates.
After that Norris, Nebraska, served
notice that he would bring up his
iresolution for government operation of
Muscle Shoals as soon as the third
term thing was settled. The Walsh
proposal for investigation of public
utility electric companies was set for
consideratiomi next Momday.
Senate committees had two im-
portant developments. John D. Rocke-
feller, Jr., was summoned for Satur-
day as an oil case witness and Secre-
tary Davis, of the War department,
said the administration's proposal for
a 20 per cent state share in the cost
iof the flood control plan for the
Mississippi was just "a suggestion"
to Congress.
