leader would materialize, was expect

policies were up, including defense, ap
propriations, a budget system, ship pur
chase and otoher questions.
Another democratic caucus is planned
for next Tuesday to finally apportion
committee assignments for presenta

changes and reorganization of entire
committees, due to increased republican
and decreased bull moose representa

were largely, but tentatively framed
by members of the Ways and Means
committee. Chairman Saunders of Vir
ginia ruled the caucus. There has been
talk of opposition to him because of
his alleged opposition to tho adminis

military committees, because of their
effect -on preparedness legislation, it
considered an especially important.
There are four democratic vacancies on
the naval and fivo on the military com

whether these places, which might give
committee control, shall be filled by
big or little navy and nrmy mc.nbers,
friends or foes of the program. A move

and banking committees. Committee
apportionment to givo the divnocrats n

a knotty problem. Because of the over

last house, tho important committees
having 21 members were divided among
14 democrats nnd seven republicans and
progressives. The republicans are insist
