ABSTRACT

Elsewhere in this issue (page 1021) appears a rather full condensation of the first two days of the hearings on the national health program before the Committee on Education and Labor of the United States Senate which began April 2. Obviously Senators Wagner, Murray and Pepper and Congressman Dingell had organized the first day's session as a sort of conversion and revival meeting, in which the four uplifters would cooperate to bring the doubters promptly to the mourners' bench. Perhaps unfortunately for them, but no doubt fortunately for the people, some agnostics appeared, who tossed doubts and questions that agitated one of the leaders to unholy remonstrances. As might be expected, the newspapers seized on the controversy as the real news of the day; the propaganda of Pepper, the diatribe of Dingell, the weasel words of Wagner and the modulations of Murray failed to find any expression in the public
