HOUSE IGNORES HARDING'S PLEA Expressed Wish in Tax Re- vision Disregarded and Amendment Passed. Washington, D. ('.--The tax revision bill conference report was presented to the house Monday. Only five of the 10 conferees have signed the report. The democrats re- fused to sign, and Senator Smoot of Utah, republican, proponent of tile sales tax, wittlheld his signature.

The rollcall for tl~e amendment in- cluded 94 republicans, including Sin- nott, Oregon, and Summers, Washing- ton. The .democrats against totaled 106 and included Lee, California.
