agreed here today. Present indications
are that ihe Senat will reject any ap

that does not make provision for an

is nothing right now to indicate that
the House is even going to consider
an eight months school term.
As a result, when the House finally
completes its consideration of the pre

when finally passed by the House will
conform more nearly to the Cherry-
Bowie bill than the committee bill,
it is indicated —it will not be accept

The passenger train had been de
