says Tapper, "is just human na-

there is plenty of good politics."
Tapper, whose current term as

LATER THAN WE THOUGHT
On the hells of the bloody nightmare in the
US Capitol, when a handful of Puerto Rican fan-
atics-branded as Communist dupes-opened fire
from the gallery on the House of Representa-
tives in session, official Washington reverted to
a regime of wartime security and some changes
were in the making.
The Capitol police, a reli cof the political
"spoils system", and made -up largely of boys
working their way through school and "deserv-
ing" oldsters, is now likely to be reorganized into
A force of professional policemen.
The three Puerto Ricans, seized as they tried
to escape from the balcony, and a fourth picked
up afterward in a Washington bus terminal, were
speedily indicted on forty criminal counts by a
Federal grand jury. Conviction could mean
