PAGE THREE BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 14,1M» THE NATION TODAY Need for Limitation of Debate In Senate Emphasized by Fast Work of House on Foreign Aid By James Mat-low <JL<f WASHINGTON, April U. (/!';—I'd be a pretty puzzled pigeon It I'd been sitting out in the midille or tnc Untied States the past two weeks trying to figure out Congress. * The talkative Senntc, with only 96 members, took two weeks to ap- porve the Marshall Plan for Europe for another year; but the House with 435 members took only about 17 hours, For those two weeks. The Senate spent almost every minute haggling over the Marshall Plan; except for the n hours on the plan, the House used the two weeks to race through a lot of other thlncs, The reason: ill the Senate there's no limit on debate; in the House there Is Of course, if House debate weren't limited, Its 435 members could use up a whole session debating one bill. So gabbiness has to be limited there. The Senate, whose 96 riignifiet members bend over backwards being polite to one another, wants no gag on talking and feels it still can get its work done. That's debatable. If the Senate keeps up its present slow rate, it's doubtful much of the program President Truman promised the voters last November can get through. But, then, it's doubtful ^Jmich of it would be passed anyway. v2^ Altogether now the Senate hns 'aecn talking about six xveck.s. Except for a couple days spent on passing new rent controls, the Senate has used those weeks on jusl two main subjects: civil rights nnd the Marshall Plan. Everything else had to wait. It used up between three weeks and a month in a filibuster on the civil rights program. Thai was shoved aside in the end and probably suffered a mortal blow for the rest of the session. Then, alter a brief pause to vote for 15 months more of rent control the Senate turned to the Marshall Plan and talked till last week-end. When It got into the plan there were long discourses that touched only remotely on it. And there were almost endless discourses on amendments, of which there were plenty. Amendments are changes which Flood Control Plan Endorsed Arkansas Senators Join in Sponsoring Mammoth Project Senator suggests be made In uiU. For Instance. Senalor Taft, Ohlo.Repnblican, offered one to cut Marshall Plan spending 10 per cent. That was defeated—for Ihe lime being, anyway. So. besides talking for days on the Marshall Plan itself, the Sennle talked for days on the amendments. U was different In the House. There amendments were offered too. but on sonic of them each Congressman who wanted to speak was limited to about 5 seconds. But even after nil the talk In both houses. Ihe last word hasn't been said on the Marshall Plan. For fill both Houses did wus approve letting the Marshall Plan continue for another year. But—am: his is Important—it hasn't voted iny money to keep It going. It will get around to vottiiK or 1 the money In a few weeks. Thai will ccrtiiinly mean move Senate debate and more proposals to cu down Ihe money for it. The House of course, will do a quicker job.
