If we have to make speeches until morning!' Austin on Senate filibuster. Washington, D.C., July 1. The Senate met at noon yesterday and kept going until 1:53 the next morning. Reason was that a republican bloc, opposed to allowing the President continued power to devalue the dollar and the Treasury to dip into the $2,000,000,000 stabilization fund, filibustered until midnight, at which time the power was supposed to lapse. Some opinion held that the power could again be granted, even after that time, so Senator Warren R. Austin told reporters that he had a list of 10 Senators who would speak if it held the Senate in session until dawn. The monetary authorization was, as was promised, 'talked to death'

One of the ten year old boys said, "Only two more years and I'll be in the mill." Little girls added, "Four years more and I'll be there." They all seemed to feel they would get into the mill as soon as possible.  Location: Winona, Mississippi.
