Christmas recess in a fighting mood
today and even in the purely for-

of troubled waters ahead.
The first came when many social-

failed to join in the eulogy of Mar-

Sibille, dean of the house.
The second manifested itself in
the sudden opposition that devel-
oped to the re-election of Fernand
Bouissot, veteran socialist, as presi-
dent of the chamber. His re-elec-
tion had been expected to be merely
a matter of form, but when the
ballots were counted it was found
that he had failed to obtain half
the votes polled as was necessary to

ond ballot by 261 to,220 for Maurice

Controversy on Meyer
as Federal Reserve
Governor Faced.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. -
The appointees of President
Hoover to the new tariff com-
mission were in office tonight
with Senate confirmation.
The sixth member, Edgar B.
Brossard, Republican, Utah, sur-
vived a two-day attack to gain
approval by 45 to 36.
Brossard was vigorously assail-
ed by the Democratic leaders for
his activities in connection with
the sugar tariff as a member and
employee of the old tariff commis-
sion. He was termed "too close to
the sugar interests" and his "offi-
cial integrity" was questioned.
Republicans stoutly defended the

eight Democrats voting with the
Republican regulars for the nom-
inee while nine Republicans and
the Farmer-Labor member lined up
with 26 Democrats in opposition.
