The rules committee of the Paris peace conference adjourned in a tangle over procedural questions today and a British spokesman said the possibility had been raised that the entire Russian bloc might leave the conference. The committee bogged down over the question of whether a simple or two-thirds majority vote would be required to ap- prove matters before the full conference. A dinner recess was decided upon when Yugoslavia served no- 'ice she would not be bound by any committee decisions reached by less than a two-thirds major- ity.

He ac- cepted Byrnes' challenges to have the American's remarks publish- ed in Russian newspapers amid charges and counter-charges of inconsistency.
