THUSRT)AY, APRIL 28, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN New Labor Bill May Get Riders Backers May Accept Amendments to Save i Measure from Defeat William F. WASHINGTON, April 28— MN— House Administration leaders said today they will accept certain amendments to their Taft-Harlley repeal bill to save it from defeat by Republicans and Southern Demo* crat.i. The claimed a minimum of 210 votes for a modified version of the Le.sinski bill as a decisive vole approached—possibly late today but probably not until tomorrow. Normally, that total would be enough to send their bill Lo the Senate. The measure would repeal the Toft-Hartley Labor Act and replace It with a union-backed measure modeled a Her the 1935 Wagner Act. But opponents -still publicly claimed an edge in voting strength. They hoped to substitute a bill Introduced by Rep, Wood <D-Ga) which would retain most of the Taft-Hartley law's major provisions. Some labor spokesmen have called the Wood hill a Lnughcr measure than the orginal Tnfl-Hailley Imv. Privately. Republicans and Southern Democrats leaciinp the fight against the administration measure told newsmen "the pressure" being £ applied by labor and Democratic ^ leaders was beginning to produce results. Looks Like Toss- Up "It looks like a toss-up right now,' a top Republican said. "It all depends on lioiv many amendments the administration is willing to au- ccpl to save its bill." Administration spokesman indicated willingness to accept these changes in the bill introduced by Chairman Lesinskl (D-Mlch) of the labor committee: 1. A requlrmcnt that representatives of both employes and employers sign non-Comimmist affidavits as provided in the Wood bill The Taft-Hartley law requires only union leaders to sign them. 2. A provision allowing the government to obtain Injunctions lo delay strikes that imperil the national health or safety. The Taft- Hartley law and the Wood bill contain a provision covering this. 4. A provision requiring unions lo bargain in Rood faith, as contains in the Tail-Hartley Act and the Wood bill. But before those amendments were voted on, the House had to A decide whether it wanted the Wood bill, which was due for n vol ahead of the Leskinski measure.
