The entrance of Lieutenant dovcrnor Trapp into tho house speakership fight, supplemental to his interest In tho senate situation, was signal ized today by a tolcphono conversa tion with reprosontativo Phillips, of Norman, a Gibbons supporter, when ho told Phillip "whnrn in head in " Following tho news that Trapp had exproBscd himself as favoring Stovall for speaker, Phillips culled up the lieutenant govornor and pro ceeded to criticize him, Trapp re torted that in his opinion Stovall "in a cnpablo gentleman and a states man"; Gibbons Is a good boy." With that Trapp Is said to havo hung up tho receiver and finished his re marks to his office force. It haB boon predicted for several days that as a result ot tho activ ities ot Walton to dislodge Trapp from controLof tho senate, tho lleu- tonant governor would widen tho area of battlo by getting into the House contest, and this developed to day.

There Is some disposition among the Walton mipportors to crlticlzo him for remaining away until so Into an hour, after having once entered Into the fray and K Is felt that he should havo been here two or three daya ago, beforo hla friends became jeopardized. Tho critics aro casting about for somebody responsible for tho delay, believing that he has been badly advlfea by persons who claim to bo his mends. Thoro Is a possi bility that ho may suffer defeat at somo points as a result, and this Is bolng taken full advantago of by tho antladniinlstratlon forces In both houses and senate. In this connection It has been in timated that Walton has purpowedly delayed returning to help his irlends, who early in tho week began send ing up S. O, S. elgnal and that ho pursued thla course to avoid obli gations to the numerous persons who wero expecting his help at this time. It was oontendod by Blake, before leaving today, that thoro still remains plenty of time for tho mayor to exercise his pressure on the situation and that tho executive foot is already poised above the heads of recalcitmnts In both housos. During the past 24 hours, and fol lowing tho discovery yesterday, that both' Gibbons and Angliti were In serious danger, a number of mem bers have been Invited to the mayor's office, v.-here they have been given the "third-degree."

This bloc will doubtless await further developments concerning the administration desires beforo .coming out openly.
