the prospect of votes tomorrow on the censusre apportionment bill in he senate antl the tariff measures in the house Their fear was caused by the dead lock between the senate and house farm bill conferees over the export debenture plan The house is speeding toward a vote on the tariff bill at 3 oclock tomorrow afternoon under the spe cial rule which gives priority to con sideration of amendments from ways and means committee and has operated successfully thus far in blocking all efforts to make changes not approved by that group The senate still had before tt to day the most sharply contested amendment proposed during its con sideration of the bill to provide for the taking of the 1B30 census and reapportionment of the house the change sponsored by Senator Sack ett

aliens would be to the advantage of the cities and deprive rural sections of representations Atlantic Planes Still Held by Weather SHIELDS BACK INDESMOINES Committee Is to Work Out Reorganization of
