Washington, D. C., Jan. 3.—Not
withstanding the fact that it rained
all the way from Chicago to this
big town—we got here “all right.”
People on the train who came all
the way from California stated that
rain and snow had been falling all
the way across the country. News
papers with Nebraska date lines
tell of snow six to ten feet deep
over the Nebraska third district.
That is the greatest farm relief we
know of right now.
Washington today looks just as
it looked two years ago when the
workers from this congressional
office first saw the town. The cap
itol has been repainted. The mall
is cleared of trees. The White
House has been made almost fire
proof. Workmen are busy on a new
building for the Bureau of Print
ing. The temporary grand stand
and seats are all ready for the in
auguration of the President on Jan.
20. The temporary seating in front
of the White House for the review
ing stand for the inauguration par
ade is also set up. Everything
seems to be ready for a great show.
Apartments and rooms are hard to
get. Everybody seems to be com
ingto twon. The navy midshipmen
came off the train by the score. Go
ing back to studies after holidays
at home. Six hundred and two

The first 1937 Nebraska license
tag in Washington appears on a
Nebraska Third district automobile.
It attracted some attention in front
of the house office building. Some
congressmen buy District of Co
lumbia auto licenses. They cost
only a dollar.
Church crowds here on this Sun
day were very small due to the
rain and cold winds. Easter brings
out the biggest crowds. So does
Christmas eve. They tell us it was
hard to get a seat in the churches
here on Christmas eve. Some pews
had to be reserved ahead of time.
The picture shows attract vast
crowds as usual.
Washington D. C., Jan. 4.—Al
though congress opens tomorrow—
Tuesday noon—this was really the
big opening day in congress. The
Republicans and Democrats held
their caucuses behind closed doors
in the House chamber. The minor
ity and majority selected their
speakers—their floor leaders—their
house employees and chairmen of
various committees. While there
was a fight among the Democrats
over the floor leadership, it was all
known ahead of time that William
Bankhead would be the Speaker
and Bert Snell would be the repub
lican floor leader. The real fight
among members of both sides was
for places on committees. Mem
bers usually go to their floor lead
ers and chairman of committee on
committees, and fight for places on
committees which they hope will do
their districts the most good.
This office is making a fight for
the agricultural committee, but be
cause there are so few republicans
left, it is hard to land such a pre
ferred committee. Chairmen tell
members that there are so many
deocrats there may be few posts
left for a minority member.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 5.—With
both parties all lined up with their
organization work, the slate was
clean today and the speaker was
introduced and members were sworn
to uphold and protect the constitu
tion of the United States. There
was the usual scramble for tickets
to the two galleries. People in all
walks of life wanted to see the
Seventy-Fifth. Congress open and
“The Hill” police had the usual dif
ficulty in handling the crowd. Ad
mission to both galleries was by
ticket only. That did not prevent
a lot of people “who knew some
body” getting by the guards and
getting aisle standing room. No
business except that of swearing in
the new members and the usual
formalities of presenting the speak
er was done on this day. Members
on both sides of the aisle appeared
profuse in their congratulations to
each other, wishing each other a
Happy New Year—but as soon as
the legislative mill starts grinding
the party lines will be drawn and
the usual fight begun.
The National Press Club had as
guest of honor and speaker, Vice
President John Nance Garner, Mon
day noon. What the Vice President
had to say was absolutely “off the
record,” and newspaper men at
tending the luncheon were made to
understand that the Vice Presi
dent’s remarks could not be printed.
Senator Borah also was a speaker
at the luncheon. Both Vice Presi
dent Garner and Senator Borah
appeared in excellent health, but
here is a tip—people who talked
to the Vice President say that he
admitted that he was going to re
tire from politics after his present
term of office.
The ground on which the capitol
building and office buildings and
the Congressional Library are lo
cated is called “The Hill," and to
day “The Hill” is a regular mad
house. Old members are bumping
new members from offices. More
than three hundred members are
moving their offices from one place
to another, and new members who
had no office reserved are having
a tough time finding a place to
light. The hallways are filled with
furniture and employees are dash
ing madly about to place that fur
niture where members want it. It
will be a month before many of
these members are actually settled
down and ready for real work.
Miss Galey of Columbus, called at
the congressional office recently.
She is employed by the Security
Board and drives here occassionally
from Baltimore where the Security
Commission rented a lot of space
and where hundreds of people are
working. There is not room in the
regular governmental buildings in
Washington for the unusual num
ber of governmental bureaus. The
government rents about 100 build
ings in this town. The rental runs
over one million dollars per year,
but buildings are so scarce that
this new Security Board had to be
moved to Baltimore in older to get
suitable space.
The annual meeting and recep
tion of the General Federation of
Women’s Clubs will be held here on
Jan. 13. The State President and
national organizers from all of the
states have sent beautiful engraved
invitations to the senators and
congressmen from their states to
attend this reception. The Nebras
ka members received their invita
tions from Mrs. Martha Scott and
Mrs. Martin MeDuffey of Norfolk,
State President.
Dr. Harold G. Moulton’s predic
tion that we shall have an actual
labor shortage in the United States
within the next five years if in
dustry production recovers to the
1929 limit is in line with the gen
eral thesis which the Brookings in
stitution, of which he is head, has
been so effectively preaching dur
ing the last two years. This is, of
course, in direct contradiction with
the theories of such New Dealers
as Harry Hopkins and with the
false doctrines of those who advo
cate the economics of scarcity.
But the country is plainly on the
road toward discarding this phil
osophy of despair and defeatism.
It is not likely to listen much longer
to the theory that there are no new
worlds to conquer. 1 his change
means a return to the traditional
American optimism and energy
which not only brought the nation
out of the past depression, but has
opened new frontiers as old ones
have been closed. But there still
remains a serious problem of un
derconsumption. In other words,
we are still consuming less than
we need and less than the country
can produce. If we can keep prices
low and increase production we
shall be able to greatly increase
The most serious danger that lies
ahead is that by government inter
ference and by increased taxation
prices will be forced up as fast
or faster than wage increases. If
price increases can be avoided in
dustrial production may well, as
Dr. Moulton predicts, surpass the
1929 level within a few years. That
this will make possible the virtual
elimination of all but the unem
ployables seems clear to everyone
except Harry Hopkins.—New York
The progress of recovery has now
eliminated further need for expan
sion of public works or for federal
subsidies for construction to states
or cities. Private construction,
especially of residences, requires
skilled labor, which should now be
released by curtailment of all but
the most urgent public works. A
shortage of skilled construction
labor is already noted in many
parts of the country, a fact which
may limit the speed of recovery in
private building.
Those are the conclusions of the
public works committee of the Am
erican Association for Labor Legis
lation. They are doubly significant
because of their source, for the
committee has not been opposed
to the large public works policy of
the past, but, on the contrary, has
recommended and warmly approved
it, and even now recommends that
the PWA be retained as a perman
ent agency, ready for “the next de
pression.” But for the present, ,it
holds, “the pump has been primed”
and “recovery is in full swing.”—
