"Of course a most agreeable part of the Senator’s life is his daily association with his colleagues.  There is enough of the boy left in even the oldest Senator to give to the Senate something of the quality of a class in school."

-Senator George Wharton Pepper, 'What is the Senate?' Forum 74, December 1925.
