Split on Subject of Fed
eral Volunteer Army and
Washington. May 5.—Conferees on
the army reorganization bill late yes
the committee broke were the federal
of the measure and adjourned until
matters in disagreement can be taken
up in the house. The rocks on which
the committee broke were the feleral
volunteer army and
government nitrate plant amendments
adopted by the senate.
Notwithstanding the disagreement,
Senator Chamberlain, chairman of the
senate conferees, said last night he had
hoped that a good bill eventually would
be worked out.
"The house conferees would not yield
to the senate provision for the volun
teer army or the government nitrate
plant," said the senator. "There are
a number of minor points in the bill,
which also are In disagreement. But
the main points seemed thus far to
be the Irreconcilable features.
