The Senate today voted to insist on Pr*>?>OM *s to the National Guard in the Army reorganization bill and re turned the bill to conference for further negotiations. addition to the conflict over Na tional. Guard provisions conferees of the House and Senate on the measure are to he confront'*! with a formal protest from the executive council of the American federation of Labor aaraitist a clause or the Senate hill regarded by labor leaders as a "joker" which would permit peace-time conscription of labor. The section objected to by labor is that ma?ung all men hetnven eighteen ami forty-five years of age liable .to "com pulsory military service" whenever Congress shall declare and the Presi dent proclaims "that a national emer gency exists." It adds that in that event such men also "may be compelled under military regulation to engage in occupations of importance in the maintenance of the national Interest during the emergency." I^abor leaders argued that in the event of an industrial disturbance, such as a coal miners' strike, this I language would permit a "national j emergency" to be declared and mili tary regulations invoked to force the men back to work, regardless of any threat of foreign war over the coun try. Kramers of the bill have con tended. howevei", that the purpose of the language was to cover only a war emergency, and it was said to day that when the bill finally emerged from conference it probably would show amendment to make this clear and to safeguard the section against any peace-time application. Refused by Home. Refusal by the House after a stormy debate to agree to the Senate compro mise on the bill was reported to the Senate by Senator Wadsworth, who asked the Senate to insist upon its pro posal for federalization of the National Guard. The compromise, over which the I storm broke in the House, deals with reorganization of the National j Guard, the one feature of the hill causing the present deadlock. The Senate plan would permit each state to say whether its guard should be federalized. During House debate several mem bers attacked the Senate proposal on the ground that its adoption would kill the guard by making it a part of the Regular Army. The new scheme of organization also w~-as opposed as a step toward adoptioh of a system of compulsory military training. Clark Telegram Read. A telegram from Bennett Clark, president of the National Guard As sociation of the United States, op posing the change was read on the floor. His father. Representative Champ Clark, the democratic leader, was among the speakers protesting against the Senate plan. RMW.MNAMED BISHOP IN M. E.
