Truman's Threats To Chastise
Congress Getting Him Nowhere
By JAMES THRASHER
Mr. Truman Is the first President since Warren G. Harding to
graduate to the White House from Congress. And no President
since Harding has been more familiar with the operations and
traditions of that legislative body. Yet It sometimes seems that
this familiarity breeds, If not contempt, at least a disregard for the
pride and sensitivity of the lawmakers.
This Congress, or any Con
gress, Is highly conscious of its
prestige and dignity. Its mem
bers have their differences. But,
like many quarrelsome families,
they will unite to defend them
selves against any attack from
Yet Mr. Truman seems to
take periodic delight In rubbing
his former colleagues the wrong
way. He has cast aspersions at
the Republican 80th Congress
and the Democratic 81st. He has
stuck pins into the thin skins of
individual members. He has de
manded that Congress think and
act as he bids, on pain of loss of
And now, unless the national
commander of the American
Veterans Committee has de
liberately misquoted him which
seems most unlikely Mr. Tru
man has obliquely invited Vir
ginians to oust their senior sen
ator with the remark that there
are too many Byrds In Congress.
This is surprising for two
reasons. One is that Mr. Truman
surely knows the hazards of try
ing to purge a rebellious Con
gress of its disobedient members.
Mr. Roosevelt tried it at the
height of hi? extravagant popu
larity, and failed. Purge attempts
are not only considered an af
front by the targets and many
of the associates. They also are

In Child Assault
PORTLAND, May 19. UP)
A former State Mental Hospital
patient, just freed from jail by
a suspended sentence, is held In
an assault on a four-year-old girl.
The child was found bound,
gagged and bleeding in the rest

Search for the child had start
ed earlier yesterday when the
mother reported her missing. A
fruit dealer described a man in
whose company he saw the child.
MeAdams was quoted as saying
when seized, after the girl was
discovered, "perhaps I should go
back to Salem for a few months."
Browne said MeAdams was held
on $5,000 bail.
MeAdams originally was sent
to the hospital in 1936 but escap
ed the next year. He was later
returned. He had been held in
jail Tuesday on a vagrancy
charge, but was given a suspend

by Municipal Judge John B. Sea-brook.

partly by excoriating the last
