WASHINGTON,- April -7. Final
determination was reached today by
Republican leaders In the house to
bring to a, vote in that body late
Friday the resolution to declare the
state of war with Germany at an end.
A special rule reported today by the
rule committee. ; provides for six
hours debate -Thursday and five
hours Friday, after which opponent?
of the resolution may offer only a
motion to recommit.

ineffective In achieving its pro

injecting new and complicated ques

American rights and an impairment
of American prestige and honor.
The minority report took particu
