Democrats Seek (Continued from Page i) bles with the House Rules Committee — even when the Democrats were in control of Congress, as they will be again next week. That trouble arose because the Rules Committee— which must give i&s okay before major bills can. get to the floor for debate — traditionally has had a heavy proportion of southern Democrats as members. These Democrats often teamed with Republicans to -refuse clearance to New Deal-type legislation. Would 'Permit Less Signers Briefly, the, plan under study would permit as few as 150 members —perhaps even Jess — to sign a- discharge petition and thereby 'force action on a bill regardless .of what the Rules Committee has decided. Such petitions now require 218 1 signatures, a majority or the Hous membership. But up until 1935, onl 145 signers could command and go a vote. The Republicans, however, have 171 members in the new Con .ress, so they, too, would be abl ;o force out bills under, that plan To get around that situation, th Democratic leaders have proposei an additional requirement that onl; he chairman of a committee whos bill is being bottled up could initiat a discharge petition.
