with hope that some substantial progress
would be made toward the enactment of
such a provision before the day was over.
Senator Cummins of Iowa has proposed an
amendment that will be received with fa

Senator Bailey has introduced such a
measure that will appeal to democrats.
If a majority can eventually bs obtained
for this legislation, it will be made up of
republican and democrats. In the senate
yesterday It was agreed that the considera

that the first bout over the Income tgx

Mr. La Follette, who had 'taken his soat,

rule had not been equally applied to all
senators on the floor. He said he had
noticed that some senators could say things
without attention being called to them,
and that it was generally understood that
he had In mind Senator Penrose's recent
criticism of himself, which was not le

see that the rule was uniformly applied to
