RECESS IDEA Spurns House Plan to Go While Senators Dally with Tax Bill. The Senate yesterday sat squarely down upon the proposal of the lead er? of the House that the Congres? take a rece?? while the Senate Finance Committee has the war revenue bill under consideration, and not b.ing it up for pasaage un til after th? election?. "You are engaged upon Important government war business and It I? your duty to work and not fight for r?-election." wa? In effect the mel are of the Senate leader? to the member? of the House. It was another phrasing of "poli Uca Is adjourned, ' and so determin ai are the Senate leader? to m?ke the rule a? effective as possible that the Finance Committee will not an nounce a schedule of hearing? or agree In advance upon a day for a vote upon the war-revenue bill. If members of th? House go cam paigning they are likely to find themselves recorded fts absent when th? bill come? to a final vote before elections, ?nd will find It necessary to explain to their contituents why they neglected their duty for poll tic?. t mu After Election?. From the very start the "regu lar?'* of the House?meaning regu lar politicians?have fought against h? enactment of taxation legisla ron before the fall elections. With the bill unanimously endorsed by the Committee on Ways and Means ?nd certain of passage in the House in ten days the "regulars" saw still a ray of hope and ptanned a rec?is on the ground that the Senate would Unger over consideration of the bill, in committee ?nd on th? loor, until after election at the earl iest. The first that the Senators knew of <he scheme was when they read about it In the newspapers yesterday morn ing. Then there were Informal con ferences In which Democratic and Re publican members found themselves in accord In the determination to hold the Congress in session until after the ?svenne bill Is enacted into law. Weald Fix Ne Date?. Senator Simmons, chairman of the Finance Committee, sent for Repre sentative Garner, of Texas, one of the House leaders, and told him of the ?mper of the Senate. He also told nim that his committee would make up no fixed schedule of hearings or fix a date in advance for a report on the bill, and that the House should remain in session, with a quorum im mediately available, ready to take final action on the conference report on the W.Cfje.OOO.000 taxation measure. Hearinars before the Senate Finarice Committee will begin on Friday. Thus far only a few applications to be hears? have been received. The publication -if the text of the bill Is Introduced In the House may brine; fresh appli ation* But Senator Simmon? said last night that the committee would sit and hear those who desired to ap pear before it as they presented them selves, and In this way bring the hearings to a close as speedily a? possible. The hope Is that the hear ings will last only three or four days and that the committee will be reaoy to report the bill to the Senate on Monday. September IS. the next legl? latlve day following its passage by the House on Saturday. September 11 YEW YORK SOCIETY GIRLS REPLACE MEN Daughter of Henry R. Davison is Radio-Inspector. New Tork.
