Then, one after another, those who
have worked for years with and
against Senator Robinson rose and
b r i e f l y, sometimes emotionally,
praised the dead Senate leader, as a
statesman, as an opponent, as a
leader and as a friend.
"No man ever bore the responsi-
bilities of leadership with greater
courage, fortitude, patience, fore-
sight and wisdom," said Senator
Barkley of Kentucky. "May God
rest his militant soul."
"The Republican members of this
body join me in expressing profound
regret and sorrow in the passing of
Senator Robinson," said Senator Mc-
Nary, the Republican leader.
A "great citizen, a great senator

and a great American," said Senator
Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan.
Following the great Southern tra-
dition of many a statesman before
him, Robinson made a law career the
mounting block to a career in public
office. He served successively as a
member of the House, governor of
his state and senator. Within a pe-
riod of seven weeks, in early 1913,
he served as all three.
By 1920, he had become a figure
so prominent in his party that he
presided at its national convention of
that year. In 1928, he became his
party's nominee for the vice-presi-
dency, with Alfred E. Smith. Mean-
while in 1922 he became Democratic
leader of the Senate, upon the retire-
ment from that office of Senator Un-
derwood of Alabama.
But it remained for the depression
to bring the Arkansan really to the
fore, in battles with the Hoover ad-
ministration over relief, and coopera-
tion with it in certain recovery meas-
ures. Then, when he became ma-
jority leader with the advent of Pres-
ident Roosevelt, he found his work
really cut out for him.
Almost every piece of Roosevelt leg-
islation that has been enacted felt
the imprint of Robinson's labors. Al-
ways aggressive, resourceful in de-
bate, dogged and determined he pro-
ceeded from one winning battle to
In debate, he wielded not a rapier
but a sledge hammer. Bulky of body,
powerful of voice he was a familiar
figure standing at the first desk of
the first row on the Demcratic side
of the chamber, fighting the battles
of the New Deal.
Not gifted at the witty repartee in
which some of his colleagues delight,
his defensive weapon was a knack for
withering opposing arguments with
scorn, with sarcasm piled higher and
higher as he deliberately proceeded
from one word to the next.
Of all the battles that he won,
perhaps, he was proudest of strug-
gling with and conquering a temper
that in the old days would flare
into action at the slightest provoca-
tion. Once he knocked a fellow club-
member down at the tee of Washing-
ton Country Club and was expelled
from the club for doing so.
Many members of the Senate
watched him fight his own anger.
They saw him, involved in a bitter
debate, standing with fists clenched
until the knuckles were white, strug-
gling for control of himself.
An "easy, Joe!" from his close
friend, Senator Harrison of Missis-
sippi, was a frequent 'helper.
In later years, that battle won,
too, his fighting disposition was tem-
pered with a kindliness, and an amia-
bility which brought him dozens of
friends that his earlier belligerency
He was a leader in every sense of
the word, and jealous of his preroga-
tives as such. Once, not long ago,
a routine motion was in order. Bark-
ley made it. Robinson, entering from
the cloakroom, shouldered him aside
and repeated the motion. His friends
chuckled and loved him the more for
Always he lived quitely. For years,
he and Mrs. Robinson occupied a
small apartment, just across the Cap-
itol plaza and scarcely two hundred
yards from the Senate chamber.
Sometimes the duties of his office
were such that for weeks he got no
farther from the Capitol than the
apartment and no farther from the

relation between the sensory pro-
cesses, especially the auditory, and
the muscular movements. Then, with
the coming of the teeth, developes the
problem of differentiating between
certain consonants such as f, v, and
The need for a detailed understand-
ing of this whole development was
shown by Professor Muyskens to be
closely related with speech defects,
because any kind of physiological
disturbance, such as injury or dis-
ease, during any part of this period,
may affect the speech mechanism.
This effect will be conditioned by the
time of its influence and not, by the
kind of disease, so that a treatment
of the child for a speech disorder
must begin with the earliest of the
disturbed processes and proceed reg-
ularly through the subsequent normal
stages of speech development.
Additional value in the biolinguis-
tic approach, Professor Muyskens said
may be seen in the fact that such
treatment not only can rehabilitateI
the speech defective as a normal
speaker but also, because of the close
integration of physiological and psy-
chological processes, can often bring
about a normal mental development
of a hitherto mentally retarded child.
