Xcw Verh. Dec. S. The Tn'itcd State
Senate was defended against some of
the crltlcim directed nt It and held up
us n proper -subject of study Iy patri
otic Americans in an nddrr delivered
hy Sennter I'epper. of Pennsylvania,
today before the Aecintinn of Life
Insurance l're-dent. Senater I'epper
Is general counsel for the IViui Mutual
Life Insurance Company, Philadelphia.
Dlscuslng vnj of bridging "the gnp
between a citi.-ii'-hlp that i putcly
theoretical and that which is aNe practical,'-
the Pennsylvania Senater de
clared much of the unceinplimen'.ary
discu-leii of the Senate wn due te
"widespread Ignorance among critic
rcpectlng what the Senate lb and what
It does."
"The Sptiatc a a liedv hn two func
tions." he continued. "It ii the upper
chamber of a legNlntlve body. In the
one capacity it unite with the Heuse
In enacting appropriation bill-, revenue
bills nnd mivcellnneeiis legislation. In
the ether cnpnelty it etmiirtut or rejects

it ratlliis ei rejects treaties nhich lie

"Many of the Senate u'-at'es con
demned as wasteful arc clinrncteristle
of conferences between Aml;i"-siider.

Points te Filibustering
On the ether linnd, it is hard te
jutif the extension of these prin
ciples' te ordinary legislative business.
A question of practical citizenship is
whether Senate rules should he e
emended in their application te purely
Jegislutlic business as te confine a
speaker te the pending question and te
lireveut such unlimited debate as may
enable a minority te prevent the ma
jority from functioning.
"I call this a practical question nnd
it Is. Put in pondering ever it bear
in mind this ultra -practical considera
tion, namely, that these changes in
usage cannot come without changing
the Senate rules and that it Is entirely
fensihle te filibuster against n change in
the rules and se prevent any change
whatevtr from being made."
Would Arouse Presidents
Senater Pepper urged the life insur
ance presidents te "leave the eay
elm Irs at the club, quit beme.inln;
the decadence of the Senate and go
te the primary in order te rereis, an
elective inlluenrc in selecting .senatorial
candidates." Such action, he asserted,
ought te be actuated either by abstract
duty or self-interest or, above all, bv
"the genuine satisfaction 1011 can get
out of geed citizenship." He sug
gested that if political duties were te
be taken mere seriously a tit beginning
might be made by studying the Senate.
"Learn mere than you knew of the
Senate's functions," he advised. "Fa
miliarize yourself with its rules nnd
customs, acquaint yourself with the
operation of the intricate paytrenage
system. Make something of a study of
the personnel of the Senate. Meusure
the men by their job. Decide where
the personnel needs strengthening.
"Hemember that it is net enough te
rhoeFe geed Sennters from jour own
State. Yeu must be interested Ii uil
senatorial campaigns., be, a use te be
rflVctive jour Senuters must hay: liVe
liiindrd colleagues."
This done hy wealthy American
fathers, the Senater said, would re
move the piesent danger that "the sons
of privilege In America will degenerate
into little snobs who think themselves
tee geed for politics."

from Hemer W. Tope, secretary of the

Mr. Foulke made the assertion yes
