First Real Debate
Occurs Over Bill
WASHINGTON, Feb. 26-()-In a
tumult of snapping tempers, the Sen-
ate today heard Senator Chandler
(Dem-Ky) accuse opponents of the
lease-lend bill of endeavoring to un-
dermine public confidence in Presi-
dent Roosevelt.
In turn, Senator Wheeler (Dem-
Mont)tangrily replied that Mr. Roos-
evelt was trying to "flim-flam" the
public. He repeatedly described as
"shocking" the President's statement
of yesterday that the task of win-
ning the war must 'take precedence
over any talk of peace aims.
He called it indicative of an atti-
tude that the United States was al-
ready in the war.
It was the first real debate, and
the'first sign of ebbing patience, of
the nine days the Senate has devoted
to the bill. A session which began in
quiet fashion with Senator Nye (Rep-
ND) continuing a speech begun last
week, was suddenly transformed into
a scene of excitemeht.
First of all, Wheeler interrupted
Nye to say that Mr. Roosevelt's words.
indicatd a position which this coun-
try should not take unless it is ready
to enter the war.
"I submit we are not in the war
unless the President of the United
States has already committed us to
war," he shouted. "If we are in the
war, I repeat that we are in viola-
tion of the Constitution of the United
"How can Britain win, unless we
come into the war?" Nye asked, and
to this, Senator Clark (Dem-Mo)
added the observation that the Presi-
dent had "practically said, 'Yes we
are in the war.' "
Thoroughly aroused, Chandler
plunged into the discussion.
House Debates
Appropriation Bill
WASHINGTON, Feb. 26-()-The
House took up a $1,533,439,702 emer-
gency appropriation bill for the army
and navy today ad almost immed-
iately heard a. Republican charge that
"unreasonable delays" had taken
place in the defense program.
Soon after the bill reached the
House floor, Rep. Taber (Rep-NY)
"'-1hcre have been all sorts of
things that resulted in unreasonable
delays in the defense program that
could have been avoided if they had
been thought out before hand. Per-
haps it was too much to expect."
He declared defense workers had
been "dominated" by labor unions
and added that if this continued it]
would bring socialism and dictator-
ship. Secretary Perkins, he said, had
been instrumental in raising the cost
of Camp Edwards, Mass., from $7,-
000,000 to $29,000,000 by ordering
payment of a "prevailing" wage rate
which he said represented a gross.
increase of 71 percent"above pre-,
vailing union wages in the territory."

Duringsecret hearings on the bi
made public today, Gen. George C.
Marshall, Chief of Staff, and other
high-ranking officers conceded mis-
takes had been made in the army
New Strike Board
Is'Taking Shape'
plan for a new labor board to serve
as a "supreme court" for strikes and
disputes in defense industries which
cannot be settled by the established
machinery of federal mediation, was
reported taking shape today in the
hands of high officials.
One well-informed official who de-
clined 'to be quoted by name said
an executive order for the creation
of such a board was in the final stage
of drafting, and might be hastened

scared out of competing against the
Big Ten and National champions.
Though there was an evident lack
of out-state competition, the natators
put on a well received show with a
little Rockford, Ill., demon by the
name of Jim Welsh taking the lead-
