C?Many changes In the organization of (be National House of Repre lives will be made when Champ Clurk and "Uncle Joe" Cannon once more fnco each other across the center aisle at beginning of iho next Con e.r>--s. The dwindling of the Democratic majority, which will drop after tho close of the December session from no to will necessitate a general shifting of, the working order in tho Mouse. A ith their slender majority, id Democrats, while able to r? led Speaker ('lark, and re tain control of the Committees, will he forced to maintain an ahnest perfect organization. it with a full attendance in the House a shift of twelve ? would throw the control t,i 'lie minority side.
