Balked in their desire to get the measure u.r yesterday under a suspen- sion of -t'ijx rules, Republican House leaders in charge of the compromise Boldiers' bonus bill; still were de-" termlncd last night to put. the' meas- ure through this week. Their ex- pressed'intention was to call" it up Thursday, under a suspension of the rules. If possible; otherwise under a special rule which probably would shut .out amendments. Before the House met yesterday, the whole1 situation was laid before Presi- dent Harding at the White House by a of House leaders, but the executive declined to make any. recommendation. Upon leaving the President's office, Representative Mondell, of "Wyoming-, who headed the. committee, issued this written state- ment: legislative situation relating to the bonus bill was fully presented to' the President, with detailed ex- planation of provisions which re- move the nienace of excessive drafts on'the Treasury in the immediate fu- f.ture and avoid any program of added taxation. The President went over the entire situation, with an appraisal of commitments made. He advised the committee .that the legislation is a responsibility of Congress, and in view of expressions previously made, he did not think It essential to offer any recommendation." Declines io Suspend Rules. Speaker Gillett-also had an engage- ment with the. President in the fore- noon to discuss, the question of a suspension of the rules, but the ex- ecutive's conference with the JJouse committee lasted so long that the Sneaker was ofellffexJ'td.-fitrego his api- pointmfent in order to at the to-fat nooit io preside over Cpon reaching- the Capitol he made Known to .lit- charge of 'the bonus legislation his decision not to entertain a motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill. This necessitated further confer- ences among the leaders, who refused to abandon their plan to call up the bill v.-lth the .rules suspended so as to cut off a motion recommit the bill as veil as all amendments. The whole- question of procedure was dis- cussed at a conference held in the after, the House had' adjourned after a 50 minutes session. E'resent conference were mem- bers-of the Wai's" and means commit- tee and the party Steering committee, as well, as other leaders. Tacit Agreement Reached. :-'o final decision on procedure was reached, but there was at least a tacit agreement that .the bill would come Thursday. Representative Mondell Jssued this statement when the conference'broke up: "Tomorrow we shall reach a de- riaion, possibly by noon, as to when and how the measure'will be brought i p for consideration. There will be no party conference." Asked if the bill -would .come up this week, the ,Jloor leader said: J'Oh. undoubtedly, probably not later than Speaker Gillett said "things are as unsettled as they adding that he had not stated that he would rec- ognize anyone to present a special rule, to take the bill: up under a. sus- pension of the rules. "The only thing certain is that the will come up said he. Chairman Campbell, of tlje rules committee, said the Idea was to dis- pose of the bill, on Thursday, but with liberal debate. "The speaker's attitude is that he must be showa that a majority favor of the said Mr. Campbell. "My impression is that he is satisfied on that point" Party Dropped. In their meeting with the speaker the members went over the whole" situation fairly fully- Representa- tive of California, a for- mer service man, wanted a party, con- ference called :to thresh out the bonus the speaker was repre- sented as favoring this procedure. Others a plan, how- ever, arguing' that this would open up the whole bill to change. Mr. Line- "berger finally agreed not to'press for conference-and after further-dis- cussion It was decided to leave' until today the final decision by the speaker as" to procedure.
