CONGRESS RESTLESS AND LEADERS WANT Underwood Says Complete W' More D‘ yr than » x Con ^a'1 era in an rarnest .,islative pro vnment may be Mr ority Leader a conference with T*i , announc'd ’hat in his opinio. louse can • omplete its work o* .r necessary appropriation bills and A? other legislation which the President has insisted upon long be fore July 1. The Senat steering < -mmittee held m meeting and discussed the possibili ties of adjournment. It <ame to no de cision, however, except as to the ap pointment of a subcommittee which will be named by Chairman Kern to confer with House* leaders later in the week on this and on the measures that must be passed before the session ends. Although Senator Kern was hopeful tonight that the programme can be completed by July 10. other democratic* leaders were not inclined to share this view, and said that if the Panama canal tolls repeal bill, the antitrust hill and the rflral credits bill and the usual appropriation bills are to he put through the Senate, adjournment can not possibly be arranged before August 1. These measures made lip the "pro gramme" which Mr. Underwood an nounced the House could pass in time. Interested in Election Members of all parties in boih houses are greatly interested in tin* outcome of the November elections, however, and democratic leaders count on republican and progressive support to any plan which would Insure a rapid disposal of business and an early get >. away. ' In the Senate the fight over the tolls t*vpcal bill can he said hardly t• * have started. It was the business before the Senate today for little longer than en hour, and present indications are j that it will not be taken up in earnest With day-long devotion to it exclu sively until next week. The most opti mistic senators have predicted a two weeks’ debate on this subject alone, and it is possible that the vote will Hot he taken for three weeks. The antitrust hill lias not been re ported to the Senate. It has been ap proved by h subcommittee of the in terstate commerce committee, but sev eral hearings are yet to be given to interested parties and a report is not looked for for at least 10 days. After itb appearance many senators expect to see a debate of six weeks or two months on its proposed drastic provis ions. If these predictions are correct, consideration of these two subjects alone would keep the Senate in session until after July 1. War Not Imminent In the discussion of a cessation of congressional labors for the summer the question of sudden Mexican devel opments has not been overlooked. In the belief of many democratic leaders in the Senate, danger of war is not imminent. If there were reasons to tear war, however, when Congress ap *—~pioached the end of its work, a recess could he taken by resolution of both houses until next fall. There was some talk today among democratic senators of a party con ference on the tolls repeal bill. Some leaders are understood to favor a con ference of this sort with the hope that thereby the sentiment of a majority of the party in the Senate can he ascer tained and made public. Differences in the party could he aried in the con ference and agreement might he secured as to the vote on amendments which have been proposed and the party might present a more nearly solid front 111 the Senate. Senator Simmons, leader of the forces advocating repeal, said to night that be did not believe such a conference would he called. The question may be /taken up by the steering committee Wednesday.

AMUSEMENTS At the Lyric This week's bill at the Lyric vaudeville theatre is above the average. There are no medium acts. One or two are very ordinary and two or three are excep tionally attractive. Following its usual plan of a bill with two or three headliners, the Lyric yes terday entertained two large audiences with John F. Conroy and his model div ing girls, Valerie Bergere and her com 1 pany in a one-a< t playlet and dainty lit tle Florence Tempest, assisted by her company. Fdwin George as a comedian juggler and Correlll and Gllette as comed ian acrobats came in for second honors, both acts containing some clever feats, Florence Tempest is a duinty little maiden that has about 90 per cent of the audience in the first part of her act think , ing she is a boy, but no matter what they thought about her sex they had no doubts about her singing. She is of a solo type not seen at the Lyric in weeks and her songs are very, very refreshing. As for her dancing. Oh, well! she car dance and the fussy little gown she wears Is nothing if not daring. Ralph O’Brien and Miss Tempest execute something ot the light fantastic that is well worth see ing. John F. Conroy, who claims to be th* world's greatest life saver, has a phy sical-aquatic act which closes the hill Ir a blaze of glory. Conroy and both o his assistants are expert divers amj i; the human race was developed on a pai physically the doctors could go out o: business. This is the first high clas: aquatic aid at the Lyric in sometime ani will prove a big drawing card. Valerie Bergere and her company por trayed a one-act drama, which- contains* some very good acting, but the weather' too hot and vaudeville audience is usuall: not in the mood to get enthusiastic ove too much “deep stuff." "A Bowery Cam ille" Is the title of the drama whic bursts right into an extremely tense situ uation and wallows there until the cur tain drops. If Miss Bergere did not g< as much appreciation as she deserve it was the fault of her vehicle and no herself and company. The A Ido Brothers put on a gymnast! and comedy act, Mason and Murray ar billed as just vaudeville and Corelli an Gillette have a turn with some goo comedy. The motion pictures are of th usual Lyric standard. The bill will h given every afternoon and night of thi week. R. R. S.
