A b!B row is threatened In the House
hen it reorganizes at the beginning of
. tlic extra session over the make-up of
thf Judiciary Committee. This commit
tee, which is headed by Cons' essman
Clayton of Alabama, is becoming known
a one of the most reactionary, commlt-
to3 in Congress.
Numerous measures faorcdb".v pro-
'""grfssives are finding their way to this
committee, only to be interred there
without ceremony and without even
the formality of going into mourning
far them. In the days of 'Tncle Joe"
the Judiciary Committee used to be one
of the foremost graveyards of legisla
tion, andit)Is quite as much so now as
It was evei in the regime of "Czar".
The situation is such that It is stir

whether it is going to continue in the
next Congress, under the Administration
of a President who was chosen as a

One thing that has stirred up anger
' in the House is the fact that the
employes otithe House Judiciary Com-
njittee were 'given added pay in the
, legislative bill when that measure was
up in the Senate. The plea was that
the employes earned it In the Archbald

are seeking increases, and -some of the
House gossips are saying that the in

" This particular matter of Increased
i compensation for the employes is a
minor one, however. It Is simply one
of the things that has surned much 'at

NEW YORK. Jan. 23. Definite prog
gress toward an amicable settlement or
the gatment workers strike was hoped
for todaj in announcement from the
headquarters of the United Garment
Workers' Union that a revised schedule
of demands had been drawn up fol
lowing last night's meeting and would
be presented at another conference with
a committee of manufacturers.
It was expected that the manufac
turers would agree to the demands
temporarilyand that the workers would
return to the shops pending the arbitra
tion 6r all their differences.

CHICAGO. Jan. 23. Immediate strike
of the garment workers seemed less
likely today when union organizers
heard that several firms had sent back
goods they were finishing for New York
concerns. No definite action is likely to
be taken until another mass meeting of
workers tomorrow night.
