Veports. President Charles Woodward
hopes to he able to recess the conven

September or perhaps until after the

date, however, Is not seriously consid

a collision, which would prevent tho

of the committee on hill of rights Is
also on tho week's program. Seven
sections, which lire embodied In the

were passed last week when there was
no quorum. It Is expected that a
minority report will he offered on the
section which permits the reading of
tho Illblo In the public schools. This
section, as approved by the majority
of committee, follows:
"Tho free exercise and enjoyment
of religious profession and worship,
without discrimination, shall forever
be guaranteed and no person shall bo
denied any civil or political right,
privilege or capacity on account of his
religious opinions, hut the liberty of
conscience heiehy secured shall not be
construed to dispense with oaths or

No person shall lie lequlred to attend
