Ignoring fervent pleas of party leaders not to proclaim to the nation a “lack of confidence” in the chief executive, 108 democrats revolted and joined republicans to bury the measure in a committee pigeonhole, 204 to 196.

WASHINGTON, April 9— ‘ (JPt — REFORM BILL FOE president, came as a surprise and a shock to democratic chieftains.

MERCURY TO 45 There was relief at IO a. rn. as the temperature rose to 45. degrees from the low of 30 last night. A slight frost replaced snow of the previous two days as a blanket for the area this morning. Farmers, after an early checkup, voiced the opinion that 30 per cent of the small grain had been killed or damaged. The loss was heavier north and east of Abilene where much grain had started to head. Fear was expressed that spring grains, such as oats and barely, were in line for the hardest blow. Losses to livestock stood at a minimum, principally because of splendid protection offered in this section by underbrush and the hilly country. In the <^en country of Mitchell county and other counties to the west, the cold took a heavier toll. Lambs and kids bom during the history-making weathir froze to death, but grown animals skipped by nicely.
