House Will Recess From
August 24 Till October 1
At Harding-Mondeli Conference ]
Early Vote on Revenues and
Tax Revision is Planned
y-om Th* Tribune'? Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON, Aug 13.?After a^
conference at the White House to-day I
with the President, Mr. Mondell, ma- j
jority floor leader, ar.nounced that the
House would recess from August 24 !
until probably the first of October.
According to the agreement with the I
White House, the lower body of Con- !
gress will dispose of all important j
legislation, except the Winslow bill, j
granting additional authority to the
War Finance Corporation for refinan- i
cing the railroads, before resting.
Even this bill may be '"advanced" if !
the program for next week moves for- i
ward as planned.
The schedule decided upon calls for
consideration of the revenue and tax'
revision bill by the Republicans of the |
House in conference next Monday
afternoon. It is understood that the j
majority will agree upon a rule limit?
ing debate, probably to three or pos- :
sibly lour days. The bill will be taken'
up by the House on Wednesday and j
voted on not later than Saturday.
Speedy disposition of the tax bill is
amp.y justified after the majority side j
has aired its views, Mr. Mondell de- ?
dared, by the announcement of the ''
minority that they intended to do noth- ?
ing toward helping to redraft the tax

while the government declined to dis?

disappointed at the Council's inability
to reach a llr.al and equitable decision.

Ambassador Harvey fciV the first

"I feel I have done very little?less

your indulgence, for I often wanted
i very much to follow my desire to speak

"You must realize how painful this
