Conte of Pittsfield is "disillusioned with the Keel-dragging nature of Congress," he said today. He made the statement as he disclosed that he departed from his usual practice by voting last Wednesday against a House rule to put over one day action on a simple resolution relating to the public debt limit, The postponement rule was adopted 303 to 72. Rt. 9 Road Oiling The Vermont Highway depart ment said road oiling work would be under way this week on Rt. 9 between Wilmington and Brattle- voro, Vt. Cong. Conte Says He's 'Disillusioned Wifh Heel-Dragging Nature of Congress' Youths Attending Officer School Four members of the First Methodist Church left yesterday to attend an officer's training school for Methodist youth at Rolling Ridge, North Andover. The New England Conference Director of Youth Work, Miss Juanita Powers, is serving as dean of the school. Attending from the local church are Carol Olson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Olson of 28 Beacon St., Gail Sprague, daughter of Mrs. Lafayette H. Sprague of 65 Chestnut St., Wendy Sutton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hay E. Sutton of 21 Lois St., and Marilyn Booth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Orrin E. Booth of 142 N, Summer St., Adams. Conte'i objections were based, e said, on the "inability of the House to schedule their activities so that issues can be voted upon." There wasn't a single valid reason," he said, "why the House d not have voted on the extension of the debt limit on Wed- esday." The routine rule was discuss- d on Wednesday, and the bal- mce of the day was taken over by ong-winded Southern opposition o Defense Department anli-dis- rimlnation policies. "This has been the pattern all ,'ear," Conle said, "and I am disillusioned with the heel drag- ling nature of Congress. Indeed, most of the business already completed by the House could have been accomplished in a very short concentrated period." Conte said that his vote against the rule was a "protest" vote. Conte, who has been meeting daily with his Foreign Operations Subcommittee on Appropriations, suggested thai it might be "more humane — in view of the fact that we probably will not adjourn until Christmas — to schedule debate and voting so that the members would have the opportunity to visit their families." "Proper scheduling also means," he said, "more genuine accomplishments during this session." Birch Kitchen Cabinets Let us help you with your plans.
