Some of those who did go home at the end of the special session are hack already I couldnt stay at home one member of the house confided the other day The pressure from those looking for jobs was just too great Here I can at least put up an appearance of trying to help em out Work at Top Speed One need only visit the office buildings of members to realize what an experience they are hav ing

that the parley would be adjourned on or about July 26 it was said in well informed quarters This decision was taken at a meeting of the committee which found that the deadlock over the question whether monetary matters should be discussed remained un broken The monetary commission of the conference however at a meeting later today voted 23 to 15 to retain all the original questions on the
