WASHINGTON", Dec. 3. Kepresen

today flatly opposed a resolution - to f
install Vice-President Marshall in the
White House while President Wilson
is abroad. He also declared himself
wholly out of sympathy with the at- I

on the peace mission. He promised
there would be no concerted republi- j
can attempt in the house to question
the constitutionality of the president's

The stofe closed at the usual time

that the United States act in comDfete

The resolution also would define
peace aims, deferring until later the
formation of a league of nations and
the definition of freedom of the seas.
