Meets to Cast Ballot I rider Rules That Limit Debate, Bar Changes
Rainey Brings U p Resolution: Drys Start to Battle Passage
WASHINGTON. Feb. 20—'UP) — The House met at noon today to vote on repeal of the 18th amendment under gag rules, limiting debate and forbidding amendments. Leaders were confident of a wet victory.
Shortly after the House met. Majority Leader Henry Rainey, formerly a staunch prohibitionist, brought up the repealing amendment for action.
Favorable House action would resubmit the question to the States, as the Senate has already overwhelmingly approved the repealer in the same form in which it comes before the House.
Public galleries were packed as representatives straggled into the Houst The score of gallery seats reserved for guests of the President was empty. The diplomatic gallery, rarely occupied, was almost full. Many lesser folks sat in the aisles.
Women seemed to predominate among the gallery crowds. The buzz of conversation from the floor and gallery tiers subsided reluctantly as Speaker Garner gavelled an historic session into life.
Five minutes before noon Mrs. Patrick J. Hurley, pretty blonde wife of the Secretary of War. took a seat in the front row of the President's gallery with a party of friends.
Rainey sought to sustain his antiprohibitionist attitude by quoting from a Senate speech by Senator Sheppard. Dem., Tex., noted dry leader, He was prevented from quot- ! mg the speech by objection of Rep. Rankin, Dem., Miss.
The white haired Rained turned on Rankin.
"Well,” he said, “I’ll say it on my own responsibility then—I’ll vote for resubmission of this question.”
Rep. Nelson, Repn., Maine, was the J first dry speaker.
“Unless some definite assurance is given that there will be no return of

Elwood Bvrd, 12, of 128 Washington avenue, Manoa, suffer'd a possible fracture of the skull, a broken right arm and lacerations of the body when he was struck and knocked down by the car of a* "hit and run driver” on West Chester pike, Broomall.
The accident happened early Saturday evening as young Byrd and Norman Wiggins. 13, of 139 Lincoln avenue, Broomall, both members of the Manoa Troop of Boy Scouts of America, were returning to their homes from a hike of 14 miles, which was one of a group of tests prescribed by the leader of the troop. Young Wiggins was also knocked down, but escaped unhurt.
All that either Byrd or Wiggins could recall of the vehicle was that it was a truck and was going in the direction of Philadelphia when it struck them.
A passing motorist took the injured boy to the Delaware County Hospital and Wiggins went to his home. Constable Harry Eastburn, of Broomall, was notified and is now conducting an investigation.
