ONLY THREE NEGATIVE VOTES Claimed*i That Lever Act Is Necessary I to Permit of Food and Fuel Con toIl-Must Continue to Ret ulate German Trade. Washldgton.-All war laws, ezeipt 1 ing the Lever food control act, and, the trading .with the enemy act, would I be repealed by a resolution adopted by the house, 323 to S. Approximately 60 laws, most of them conferring broad discretionary author ity on the lareidaet as loeg as the technical state of war iont4aes, would be removed from the statute books bi the resolutiun The retention of the Lever a.t was explained by Representative Walsh, is charge of the repeal legislation, as necessary to tire the government ar efethtiv law for curbing protfteerinl I eeessidties, inclading food and fuel He added that the trading with the enemy art seuld be conttaied to reg alate trade with Germany. Representative Igoe, however, quse tioed the republicans' decision tc cattlue the Lever act asserting that "oertain interests" desire to keep the law In effect beeshse it had proved "effective ia antistrike legislation." The text of the repeal resolutlc follows: "Resolved by the senate and the bhese of representatves of the United tates of America i coa5ress as sembled.

HOUE 'FAILS TO OVR RICE Chief Executive in Sym.athy With General Purpose of Measure, but Part of It Conflicts with Constitution. Washington.-President Wilson ve toed the bill establishing a national budget system and an unsuccessful at tempt was Spade in the house to pass the measure over his veto. Notifying congress that he was re turning the bill without his signature, President Wilson in his veto message said: "I do this with the greatest regret. I am in entire sympathy with the ob jects of this bill and would gladly approve it, but for the fact that I regard one of the provisions con tained in section 343 as unconstitu tional. This is the provision to the effect that the comptroller general and the assistant comptroller general, who are to be appointed by the pres ident, with the advice and consent of the senate, may be removed at any time by a concurrent resolution of congress after notice and hearing, when - their judgment the comptrol ler general or assistant comptroller general is incapacitated or inefficient or hatbeen guilty of neglect of duty, or of malfeasance of office Or of any felpay or conduct invclving moral turpitude. The effet:t of this is to prevent the removal of these officers for any eause except either by Im I peachment or a concurrent resola I tiop of congress. It has, I think, al r ways been the accepted construction of the constitution that the power to a appoint officers of this kind carried r with it, as as incident, the power to s remove. .1 am convinced that the Spo s is without constitational p to limit the appointing power and its incident power of removal de Srived from the costitution. c "The section referred to not only a forbids the executive to remove these r ffieers, but undertakes to empower g the congress by a concurrent resole I tion to remove any offticer appointed E by the president with the advice and L consent of the senate. I can find nt the' constittion no warrant for the Sexercise of this yoweor by the con c igrss. There is eCrtalnly no a Spressed athoty eon ed .and I am Steable to see that Mutherity or the. d omrcise of this power is Implied in any expressed grant at power. On he conatrary, I think its exrcise is clear ly negatived by section two of article a IL That section, after providing that d ertain enumerated fficers and all a officers whose appointment. is · ot a otherwise prvided for shall be p Spointed by the president with the ad u vice and ceeept of the senate, pro Svides that cendess may by law Ian at vest the appoltment of such Inferior a aefcers as, they thtnk proper ia the a president alone, is the course of law, a or in the heeads of depastaents. It ai would have been within the coastltu t onast power of the coress in cre a atiag these offices to hate vested the 1 power f appointamst in the president Siloe, in the presest with the advice if and aonsent pf thae sate, or even in 4 the head of a department legatrdta at as I do at power at removal from Sotteie as n easeatl ieident to the s appointing power, I cant escape the i comenuson that te veqtlg of thris Spower -of removal tn the congrame is b memnatltutlonrt, ead thereforo I am a unabl to approve the bill. S"I am returnit g the bill the earlet Spolssblel moment with .the ope that I the congress may find time before o adjournmeat to remedy this defect."
