After a seven minute session this afternoon, tbe senate adjourned until noon Monday to permit the Republican and Democratic steering cbmmlt- tees to complete the reorganisation of the senate standing committee.

It may be temporarily delayed, however, - by Prenfeat Wilson's slight il!ne»s which keji him conlin ed to his bed sll of yesterday and from whleh be hsd not recovered today. Admin istration leaders declared that with th<- assembling of congress the resumption of American commerce on the high seas win take place Immediately. No aifflculfy Is'anticipated In Jamming through both houses the specific authority for the president to arm American merchant ships and send them forth ln defiance of Germany's submarine decree. Preeldent Back In the Saddle President Wilson's grip on the senate was about as complete today as sny executive ever attained. Under White House pressure the senate swept away traditions of a century aud a quarter, and adopted a change to the senate rules which will hereafter prevent any "little group of willful men" from holding np by merely talking, legislation which the adminis tration considers vitally affecting tho health of tbe nation. Little delay will be experienced is assembling the congress. The senate already Is in extra .session and members of the house, new and old, have been notlfled to be ready for the call. If the president so desires the machinery of the entire congress can be sat !n motion by March 20. No obstacle remains ln the path of prompt enactment of the measure giving tbe' President power to arm Ameiv- lcan ships and to use such other "Instrumentalities and methods." as he may deem necessary to protect Amerpj; can lives and commerce on the hign seas. *v Administration leaders were exult.-* ant today. They declare the senat^j vote oa the cloture rule showed that' the senate is eager to support the President Even the opponents to the armed neutrality bill admitted that the measure could be passed within IS hours after the reassembling of congress. ,' ■ Jj American Ships to he Armed Regardless, however, ot wbethOP' therm ih *a immediate call for the con- ^frees. American merchant ships are to be armed. Both Secretary of Sta'e Lansing and Attorney General Gregory have assured the president that ho possesses the authority to equip Amer lean shlos with guns for defensive par poses. What President Wilson most desires lo show ia '.hat he has a uni* tsd congress and nation behind hint. The "little group of willful men," who • prevented the last congress from siv*» ing him such authority afforded to Berlin much satisfaction and to Washing" I ton much chagrin. The fact that tho German press held up the "willful senators" as representing the "best spirit" ln America seriously disturbs tbe administration and made the ne» cessity for a new congress all tho I more apparent In administration eyes. The adoption of the cloture rule has clso cleared the way A>r important legislation made necessary by th<» Oerman crisis. These measures caa I be forced tb a vote within two days, under the present rule, or whenevos eventualities demand them.
