Mr Truman indicated thut he felt

The united labor policy, made

it called "legalized robbery" in
price control, "unjust" wage ceil

The break carried with it an
ominous threat of widespread in

serious situation when questioned.

Semiing Testifies for Present
(Legislative System Retention
John P. 'Senning, University
professor of political science,
testified Wednesday against a
proposal of both state political
nartic tn plfrt Ktat.p senators on
i The legislature's government
committee by a five to two vote
; indefinitely postponed the bill.
Professor Senning, who was on
the .committee that drafted the
amendment for a unicameral
legislature in 1934, has made a
special study of the unicameral
since that time. As a result of this
study he .concluded that "we
made certain striking gains as
compared with the oid way."
"Tbe studied results," he said,
"gave a decidedly higher type .of
men in the legislature than was
jr-ad lunder the -old system.- These
were meD of mature judgement
with a greater ingjght into the
probierQs of the people
i "Tnese mea ;Etand Dn their

district because they are not
fluenced by party pressure." he;
Another gain he listed is that
the operation of the legislature
runs more smoothly "with this
system. To illustrate this, he -said
that the Indiana legislature took
lour weeks to get organized while
the Nebraska .unicameral was op
erating within a week.
Parties Vote Same Way
"When an important issue is up
for decision, he said, and an
analysis of the votes is made, it
is found many times that republi- l
can and democratic party mem-1
bers voted the same way. In a ,
party responsibility system, he
j gtated, the result would not have
been that way.
"It is largely a myth," he aaid,
"to talk about party responsibility
under our present system."
"Under a non partisan system,"
he continued, "a legislature or
ganizes itself without party con
sideration and places the best I
men in the key positions, regard-
i less of party influence upon the
He illustrated this by saying

elected as speaker even though
he was not affiliated with the

In answer to the argument
that a partisan legislature would
be more responsible and that im
portant issues would be placed
in party platforms, he asked:
"Why are platforms so devoid
of any party issues
