This article focuses on the political issues in the U.S. The State of the Union Message this year is a preview of the GOP platform. There is optimism, rhetoric and a tendency to adopt, or pretend to adopt. New Deal measures in social fields. The theory now advanced is that by working shorter hours the job will be made easier, as when, for example, a clerk reads his message to the U.S. Congress. But the message underlines another point, you can shorten underlines another point, you can shorten Presidential hours but not the terrible decisions which a President must make during those hours. Congressional Democrats are all ready to destroy their own present high morale by a suicidal battle over the natural gas bill. Texas leaders demand oil-gas producers be freed of federal regulation at the expense of city consumers.
