Senator Watson of Indiana, the
Republican leader, who talked with
Davis at the Capital, said the $230.-
000,000 public building bill would
get early attention after passage
of the tariff measure, which is now
near the end of its course through
the Senate.

labor Secretary, will go before thel
commerce committee tomorrow to(
