Mopping his brow and a rest. Washington, D.C., May 7. Rep. W.R. Poage of Texas, taking a rest after working in the Botanical Gardens

Congressman Poage, who defended the REA and rural electric cooperatives from the attack about the copper supplies, had a background in farming. He missed gardening so much that he would volunteer to work in the Botanical Gardens while in Washington. His sympathy for the farmer made him a champion for the cause of rural electrification.
