Roosevelt's Fiery Denunciation
Of Foes Highlight Of The Week







Four Statements Lash Out
At Legislators Against
A Progressive Program
WASHINGTON, Aug. 12- (AP)-
With four defiant, fighting mood
statements, President Roosevelt noti-
fied his foes this week that he was
digging in to fight it out to a finish
with nothing barred except compro-
He made it clear-as plain as the
flood-lighted Capitol Dome-that he
will insist first of all that Congress
approve the administration mea-
sures it booted about unmercifully
last session; and then exert his ev-
ery resource to obtain the nomina-
tion of a "liberal" democratic presi-
dential candidate, backed by a "lib-
eral" platform.
From the tenor of his own re-
marks and the angry retorts of his
Democratic Congressional opponents,
it was immediately obvious that the
bitterness of the row between the
party's Roosevelt men and anti-
Roosevelt men had been increased.
And, in the view of many Wash-
ington politicians, it all added up to
a Congressional session of unremit-
ting strife next year, with, simultan-
eously, such a hard-fought pre-,
convention campaign as the country
has never seen.
After Congress headed home, its
members heatedly arguing- the ques-
tion whether the people would sup-
port the rebuffs given the President,
the Roosevelt administration had a
statement to make almost every day.
And with each, the controversy
On Sunday, the Senate majority
leader, Barkley of Kentucky, said
the next session would see a renewal
of the call for passage of both the
lending-spending bill and of the
amendments to the neutrality act,
both of which were ditched in the
session just ended. He expressed
confidence that congressional recal-
citrants would find sentiment at
home against them.
On Monday, Mr. Roosevelt nettled
opposition Democrats with a state-
ment that all the objectives of his
1937 court bill, which they fought
tooth and nail, had been reached by
the changed attitude of the court
toward the constitutionality of so-

cial legislation and by piece-meal
acts of Congress.
On Tuesday, he accused those in
Congress who were responsible for
I the debacle of the lending and neu.
trality bills of gambling that businesr
would improve and that world peace
would continue. He hoped, he said,
that they would win both bets, but
obviously he thought they had only
a gambler's chance.
But the real climax of the week
came on Thursday with a message to
the convention of Young Democratic
Clubs, meeting at Pittsburgh.
The Democratic Party will fail "if
it goes conservative next year or if
it is led by people who can offer
naught but fine phrases," Mr. Roos-
evelt said. And he added that if
conservative or "lip-service" candi-
dates running on a "straddle-bug"
platform are chosen:
"I, personally, for my own self re-
spect, and because of my long service
to and belief in liberal democracy,
will find it impossible to have any ac-
tive part in such an unfortunate sui-
cide of the old Democratic party."
At the same time, without even
hinting at the possibility of, a third-
term for himself, he expressed con-
fidence the conservatives would not

US3. Dou bles Crown
BROOKLINE, Mass., Aug. 12.-(AP)
-A jittery cavalcade of American
tennis stars converged on the Long-
wood Cricket Club here tonight for
the start tomorrow of a National
Doubles Championship tournament
that boasts entries from France,
England, Australia, Cuba, Czecho-
slovakia and the Philippine Islands.
In order to throw a star into a
virtual coma, one had little more to
do than steal up behind him and
ominously mutter the magic words,
"Quist and Browich."
For those Australian Davis Cup
stalwarts, Jack Bromwich and Adri-
an Quist, stand out over the rest of
the field that will battle for the title
won last year by Don Budge, now
turned pro, and Gene Mako.
