EVERAL events of political significance have
occurred during the past vacation which may-
>ve to be of much importance during the next
ir years. The statements of Alfred Smith, New-
i D. Baker attracted considerable attention,

Presidentially speaking, it has become evident
it the more prominent men are not especially

end many months, time and money in getting
various delegations lined up for their support
y to have, once in the White House, the entire
ss, public speakers, and other vocal efforts of
nation trained against them.
On the other hand, should they awake some
rning to find either one of themselves nomin-
d for president by popular acclaim instead of
egate-grubbing, they are assured of enough
pular support to begin with as to make four
irs at Washington look rosier than usual.
President Hoover naturally seeks "a second

his party to give presidents a second chance in
ce, he is the likely candidate. And his prospects
the next four years look much better than those
the last. During his stay at Washington he has.

or in bad taste they might have been, bothered

:ome more or less immune to this political har-
sing, treating it with as much consideration as
leserves, and therefore, he appears to be a much
>pier man and free to devote his energy to the
ssing problems of the 'day.
Today, Hoover's chances appear to be the best
the entire field. He is followed by Roosevelt,
ker and Smith in that order, with the last-
ned two slowly decreasing the gap between
mselves and Roosevelt. The events of the next
r months will bring the political spectres farther
There has been a great deal of
conflict with reference to the ad-
vertising of the Bicentennial. Not
only have certain congressmen been
concerned over the appropriations,
but certain of the Capitols artists
have been aggravated.
A few weeks ago Representative
Bloom selected one of the Stuart
paintings of George Washington.
He wanted a portrait to aid in his
advertising. The painting seemed
to please him-all except the back-
g r o u n d, which was unfinished.
Someone assisted him in painting
in what seemed to the Congress-
mai a fitting background. And,
then he even went so far as to pre-

Capitol's leading art critics for

As the approaching Presidential
contest looms before politics the
population of the District of Co-
lumbia can do nothing but settle
back and await the outcome. Some
500,000 citizens of the United States
are refused the franchise.
It is true that they will be rep-
resented in the electorial gathering,
but the members of the electorate
will be chosen by members coming
from anywhere but Washington.
We have often heard of "taxa-
tion without representation" but
very few of our citizens realize that
Such a state exists; furthermore,
that such a state exists within the
very shadow of our Capitol. It is
hoped by the people of the District
that a change will come soon-that
opinions can be expressed by other
means than only by petitions.
When the Democrats came into
:ontrol of the House there was an
enormous change in the patronage
jobs. Veterans of former years were
replaced by new favorites. New
doorkeepers and new pages were
nstalled. All'of which prdves that
the "easy jobs never last long-the
competition is too strong."
Only a short while ago Senator
Robert D. Carey was inconvenien-
ed by having to wait for a theatre
seat. Such a happening is not un-
usual to the average person. But
the Senator is now seeking to do
away with such annoyances in the
future. He has introduced a bill
to restrict the theatre from giving
.misleading statements in regard to
the seating capacity at performan-
One wonders just why a Senator
has to be inconvenienced before
legislation is taken!
It has been remarked that the
growing sentiment a m o n g the
Democrats places S p e a k e r John
Garner as the "dark horse" in the
Democratic presidential nomina-
tion. If such be 'true then it can
be seriously considered that Garner
stands as a potential candidate for
the presidency. The speaker has
