'Waslihington, May 14. - President
Wilson's veto of the legislative appro
priation bill as containing an Infringe
ment on executive authority was sus
tained in the house today against tle
efforts of the Republican majority to
Though aided by a handful of
Democrat,s tle Reiublicans failed by
28 votes to obtain the necessary two
third,, majority to repass the bill ov
er the president's disapproval. The
measure then went back to the almo
priations committee for elemination of
the sections objecte dto and will be re
turned to the house on Monday for
passage in its modified form.
The Republicans rolled up 170 votes
to overcome the veto, but the D1emo
crats cast 127 votes to sustain the
president. The vote carries with it
a denial of opportunity for the senate
to attempt offsetting the veto, for tle
redrafted measure will leave the
house without the provision relating
to powers of the joint committee on
printing at which the veto was aimed.
AWhile tle house was considering
the question, Senator Smoot of Utah.
author of the provision and chairman
of the joint committee, told the sen
ate that the president had been mis
informed as to the effect of the pro
vision -which would have given the
committee control of all government
publications. Roger Babson, formerly
connected with the committee on pub
lie information, and others attacking
the joint committee were accused by
Mr. Smott of having misled the presi
Chairman Good of the appropria
tions committee declared that 15'5 pub
lications would be compelled to ceast

serted, would rest entirely -with, th<
president. Representative Byrne, IIem.
ocrat, of Tennessee, replied that tht
blame would be with congress foi

Representative lDisson of Miksissip
pi was the only Democrat to urge thd
the veto he voted dowi. He contend
