WASHINGTON, April 25.
Speaker Champ Clark defled executive

floor of the House. Leaving the Speaker'a

I' "It is maliciously asserted." continued the
Speaker, "that we who desire to give volun.

Tho Urltlsh mission got a real welcome
last Sunday. Uut It did not class with the
love, leverence and brotherhood Jiat marked
the arrival In AVashlnBton of the represcn '

As they lode throuRh the wide avenues of
