Charges Against Mellon Dropped Ouster Attempt No Longer Necessary, House Committee Decides WASHINGTON.— (fi>)~- Impeachment charges against Andrew W. Mellon were dropped by the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday as the veteran financier prepared to step from the Treasury direction to the post, of ambassador to Great Britain.

Mellon as secretary of the Treasury be and the same are hereby discontinued." Representative La Guardia, Republican. New York, was voted down overwhelmingly when he proposed placing a recital of the facts in the re"solution. He was in the minority with three- others in objecting to any mention of the ambassadorship in the resolution. Plans of committee members to present a minority report were abandoned becuubu the resolution adopted did riot, mention the, merits of the charges.
