Such Rules as Majority of
Members Desire
Washington, Dec. 4.-(By A.
P.)-An armistice under which
the 68th congress may be organ-
ized tomorrow was agreed upon
tonight by .leaders of the Re-
publican 'insurgents and regular
organizations in the House.
Under this agreement, Gillett,
of Massachusetts, whose. re-elec-
tion as speaker has been blocked
for two days by the insurgents is
to be returned to office. This
would clear the way for President!
Coolidge to deliver his first an-
nual message to congress on
Announcement of the agree-a
ment came late tonight after a
conference between representa-
tive Longworth of Ohio, the or-
ganization leader, and Represent-
ative Nelson of Wisconsin; Rep-I
resentative Woodruff of Michigan1
and Representative La Guardia,
of New York. Mr. Nelson and his
colleagues ,said tf could, not
speak for the progressive bloc but
would recommend ' to it aban-
donment of tlie fight on Gillett.
Washington, Dec. 4-(By A.P.)-The
House staged four more rounds of bal-
loting today without electing a speak-
er, but post session negotiations be-

was:0no quavering by insurgents, reg-

day showed Gillett 198, Garrett, 195

While the House continued its fight

noon, heard the invocation and ad-

The first sign of armistice negotia-
tions between Republican regulars and
insurgents in the House came .in a
statement issued liy Representative
Longworth of Ohio, the majority lead-
er, immediately after adjournment. He
made the declaration that "the house
will have complete opportunity to
adapt such rules as the majority may
desire." The demand of the insur-
gents has been that the House have
this opportunity. After this state-
ment had been published leaders of
the Progressive bloc announced that
they had arranged for a conference
with Mr. Longworth to discuss the
whole situation. They said they would
not comment on his statement, "at
least not until after any possible
ambiguities have been removed." I
"It may be said, however, that the
outlook is hopeful," they added.

stand out as one of the show's strik-'
ing features, being equaled alone by1
the matchless impersonations of Ili-
onel Ames, '24, and the cleverness and
professional touch of the dancing.
Time and time again theaudiencet
is surprised with a set of costumes,
most admirably fitted to the spirit ofE
the dance. Then with the encores
comes a play of lights upon the cos-
tumes which seems to make them
sparkle, more than before and to give'

them new and different lustre. The
numbers "My Model Girls", "Lady of
My Tapestry", "Russian Dancers",
"Masks", "Sleigh Bells", "The Span-
ish Dance" and "Clownland" had4
costumes which indelibly impress the,
mind of the spectator.
The costumes which Ames wore
seemed to have been given most at-
tention in design, but perhaps it's the
way the feminine lead showed them
off, that made them appear superior.]
Some of the dancers seemed a bit too'
eager to display their gaudy attire.
The garb of the actors was increas-
ed in splendor by a rare display of
lights, by smiling and happy counten-
ances, and by feminine carriage. "Cot-
ton Stockings may be remembered for,

of the second of the extra concert

old familiar things.
Mr. Crooks brought youth and en-'

advantage of overuse-that he wasj

Bloc Will Try to Delay Action
Constitutional Convention
of 1926


State Movement Begun in Adrian to
Place Name of Motor Manufac-
turer on Ballot
Adrian, Mich.,. Dec. 4.-Petitions
asking that the name of Henry Ford
be placed on the Michigan Democrat-
ic presidential primary ballot next
year appeared in Adrian Monday,
coming just one week after the an-
nouncement of Edward Frensdorf, of
Hudson, that he would give the voters
of this state an opportunity to ex-
press their preference for the Detroit
automobile manufacturer.
Confined to County
One petition is on a show case at
the S. W. Raymond garage, of which
Mr. Ford's brother-in-law,, is pro-
prietor. Henry I. Bourns former
chairman of the Democratic county
committee, has a second petition and
a third is in possession of James W.
Helmne, who was Ford's opponent in
the United State's senatorial contest
in 1918 which resulted in the Newber-
ry trial at Grand Rapids.
At the time of Mr. Frensdorf's an-
nouncement of his intention to cir-
culate petitions, he intimated the
movement to have Mr. Ford's name
appear on ehe ballot would be con-
fined to this county, saying that so
few names were required it would be
possible to obtain the necessary num-
ber of signatures in a very short time.
State Leaders Divided
State leaders in the Democratic or-
ganization are divided on an indorse-
ment of Mr. Frensdorf's initiative in
the matter and M. A. Comstocks, state
chairman, and Frank A. Picard, a
member of the State Central Commit-
tee from Saginaw, having pointedly
suggested that it might be -well for
the Democrats first to find out if Mr.
Ford is a Democrat, before accept-
ing him as a party leader.
Mr. Frensdorf's answer to this was
to say that he had sufficient faith in
Mr. Ford to know that he would not
accept the party standard unless he
regarded himself as an adherent of
Democrat party principles.
Des Moines, Iwa Dec. 4.-Iowa
sponsors of Henry Ford for the pres-
idency, meeting here yesterday, indi-
cated their efforts would be focused
on gaining the support of farmers
and organized labor in the state.
By the permission of the co-opera-
tive legislative council of Iowa, an,
amalgamation of Farmers' Union and
organized labor representatives for po-
litical purposes, Francis G. Cutler, of
Boone, Ia., who called the convention
of Ford supporters, went before the
council to ask its indorsement of the
Ford-for-President movement.
Only a handful of Ford boosters
appeared for the meeting, but Mr.
6Cutler declared that Iowa is one of
Mr. Ford's strongholds. He ascrib-
ed the sparse attendance to inadequate
advertisement of the meeting. 1
