A voice vote returning the measure to a committee pigeon-hole Thursday climaxed one of the most hectic and confused House sessions in years. The bill would have given Massachusetts, Pennsylva- nia and Missouri one more House seat than they will be entitled to under 1960 census figures. The measure suddenly lost so much of its carefully arranged support that backers couldn't even muster the 80 votes needed for a roll- King Will Visit In Russia WASHINGTON (AP) -The Soviet Union, where kings and jazz officially are decadent, soon will have both in a visit by Benny Goodman, "The king of swing." A two-year cultural exchange agreement signed Thursday by American and Soviet officials will boost by 10 to 15 per cent the number of exchange visits of teachers, technicians, artists, of- ficials, athletes and others be- tween the two countries. An es- timated exchanges a year were carried out under the 1950-1 agreement. First Time This will be the first time a Goodman jazz group has played in the Soviet Union. Communist negotiators first balked at including the clarinet- ist in the exchange. Red official- dom frowns on jazz as a de- mented bourgeois product. But, U.S. negotiators prevailed after pointing out that Goodman has performed" with classical music groups in'this country and will be able to do the same' in the Soviet Union as well as play jazz. Tours Slated The New York City Ballet and the Robert Shaw Chorale are also slated to tour the Soviet Union this year, while the Soviet Union is sending to the United States thi Bolshoi Theater Ballet, the Lenin grad Philharmonia Symphony Or chestra and the Ukrainian Dance Ensemble. Both sides hailed the expandec agreement as a step forward in U.S.-Soviet relations, otherwise bogged down in cold war disputes The negotiations had been under way at the State Department since January. New Projects U.S. officials declined to labe the 33-page pact as a victory for the United States, but they fa vored the program generally as a means of penetrating the isola- tionism of the Soviet Union. While the U.S. negotiators won some new projects, as did the So- viets, the American side admit- tedly made little headway in ex- panding the free flow of informa- tion in winning broader research opportunities for U.S. students in the Soviet Union or in gaining fi- nancial compensation for U.S. ar- tistic performances in the Soviel Union comparable to what the Soviets get here. Trade Talk .The Soviets did agree to a U.S. proposal to double, from to the circulation of each (Continued on Page Two) Just before the final action, its one-time champion. Speaker John W. McCormack of Massachusetts, disavowed his support because of an amendment that would have forced the calling of special ses- sions of the legislatures in the three states to redistrict their congressional seats. Failure to call such a session or to enact redistricting laws would have re- quired all House candidates from the three states to run 'on a statewide basis. The amendment was offered- by the bill's author and floor man- ager, Rep. Francis E.

Following the Call to Colors, Presentation of Colors, Pledge ol Allegiance and invocation, a briel but poignant ceremony broughl memory of teachers of the districl who have died since the preceding convention. Sulphur High School's Belles and Beaus brought applause that rolled on and on after a dramatic to tender and always impressive singing of a "Holiday Montage" that had an impressive patriotic message. Then, eight 4-to-6-year-old boys and girls from Oklahoma School for Deaf, Sulphur, moved right into the hearts of the audience as they first felt the piano for identi- fication of. time, then moved through clapping in time, march- ing, acting out music and oven dancing. Although they couldn't bear it, applause broke out spon- taneously from time to time. Mrs, Descygne Shubert, a class- room teacher at Shawnee, past of the ECOEA' and now president of the Oklahoma Educa- ion Association, brought her message to "my own East Central and an ef- 'ective message it was of expand- ing membership, program and goals. The principal speaker, Dr. W. Ostenberg, superintendent of Salina, Kan., Schools, delivered a rather brief but highly effective address.

The death toll stood at least at 36, with a number of persons missing. Prop- erty damages have been estimated at well over ?165 million.
