does it mean" an excuse?"

 

Behind him he left pandemonium. Parliamentary procedure fell apart. Morse asked Prouty to "yield for a quorum call for an emergency," and on the other side of Constitution Avenue quorum buzzers sounded in every Senator's office. (Through this extension of word-of-mouth, supple- merited by a secretary's phone call, Church of Idaho was informed while attending a formal luncheon on the eighth floor of the State Department. He then made the announcement to Averell Harriman and the assembled diplomats.) Morse's move should have prepared the way for an adjourn¬ment motion from the Majority Leader. But Mansfield was overcome, he couldn't speak. Dirksen made the move as Minority Leader. He forgot to provide a reason for the record, however, and so, with Holland presiding, the Senate just stopped.]

does "prepared the way for" mean"Morse give him the excuse for an adjournment?"

    Morse's request would normally have caused Mansfield to adjourn the debate, but he was too upset to follow procedure.
