HIE REFUSES TO
WASHINGTON, Mar. 2. (AP)
A host of nominations sub
mitted by President Coolidge in
the last days of his administra
tion 'including that of his -secretary
of navy, Curtis D. Wilbur, to
be a federal circuit Judge of Cali
fornia, went' into the discard to
night when the senate declined to
act upon them.
In its last executive session, the
senate disposed of a number of
nominations for the Judiciary and
other federal offices, but those of
Wilbur, former Senator Lenroot,
of Wisconsin, and former Tariff
Commissioner Glassie were not
called up. '
Failure of the senate to act ren
ders the nominations Ineffective
and Mr. Hoover, after he becomes
president must resubmit names
for these posts. No one in a posi
tion to speak with authority could
say whether the new executive
would send back names submitted
by his predecessor.
