Recent Ulk of calling a special session of Congress to settle problems which have arisen since adjournment last July, has brought up the question of an interim legis- lature. To be made up of;a group of con gressmen acting as a standing committee, the body will serve in lieu of the regular .ftftaffc! f 1 . 4 Several states have started actions along this line. Kansas formed a "little legislature" in 1983 and found it a general success. Spon sored by the Kansas State Chamber of Com merce, the council made recent surveys of state penal and charitabt^ institutions. Its 27 members made recommendations after 18 months whidt'Were adopted by the leg islature. Wisconsin is another state with a legis lative council. Its twelve members are allot- •d |80,tHH) a year with which to investigate and prepare bills in!the next two years. The council takes the place of all interim com- mm' 1 Of Interest Is Secretary of State Mar shall's suggestion to the U.N.

Sen'ing as an executive group of the Congress, the council could work with the President in giving him a signal of congres sional thought on dbmestic and foreign pol icy. ' It could also lessen the load of the regular session by making advance studies and writing bills in the interim periods. A national legislative council, carefully chnnen, could give adequate legislation at all times during the year. In Texas, a "little legislature" would come very handy. Scheduling the regular aqairiph of the state^legislature < years has created a long period of inactivity during which time many issues arise that need congressional attention. An arrange ment on the order of some of the other states' legislative councils could care for thpse problem* end take action on items involving investigation and study prior to action in the regular congress.;/' A/VV Time.

Our text for today is "The pen isYnightier than the sword.” In the Battalion of Monday, SeptemlnT 22, 1947, one of the more serious editorials had to dio with the dearth of telephones in this paper’s office. Aur viziers and thamber- lains had at that time been talking up a storm trying to get service. That short, un assuming editorial did what the self-styled wheels could not. Now this is the point—if in our despera- »lion we had charged into Southwestern Slates Telephone company’s offices brand ishing cut lasses and demanded a telephone, we would by now be enjoying private rooms with padded walls. , But by using our heads for something besides hat racks and our typewritera for something more than finger exercisers we accomplished our purpose without causing undue wear and tear on anybody but the printers.
