Republicans Battle Bank Bill in House By CLARENCE M. WRIGHT, Associated Press Staff Writer. WASHINGTON, May 9.-0?)- Three sizeable scraps were in store for the House today as Democratic leaders pressed the Administration's omnibus banking bill toward final votes.- But since the measure weathered yesterday's tests without amendment, majority chiefs predicted the same thing would happen today.
