THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1949 BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.? COURIER NEWS PAGE FTVB THf NATION TODAY— Congress in Hurry to Adjourn But Members Showing Little Inclination to Face Big Issues By Jamn Mar tow WASHINGTON, July 28. M'j—These arc the dog dtiys in Washing- Ion, when the weather Is hot enough to boll your shirt, and Congress is trying to finish up for the year and go home. In spite of the heat, which is scorching the city like a blow-torch, the old, slow, waltz-me-around-again pulling and lugging among ihe congressmen never stops. + _ JSyt, they have a nice place for it> air-conditioned, and their offices are cool, so where they do their fussing nml long-winded speechmaking is pleasant as spring After walking in out of the crushing summer sun and watching them operate in the unwrlnkled linens, I figured I could speed up their unfinished business. It would be easy. Just move them Communists Run Into Difficulty In Chinese Cities to some of the im-air-coticiiticmeil offices in Washington, turn them loose, and see how long it would take them to Bel done and go home. Many Proposals Sidetracked ConRres-s wants to get away by Sept. 1. There are a few things left to clear up. That is, of the things they want to clear up. Gone now is all talk of some of the big programs that got so much attention earlier In this session. For example, a national compulsory health insurance program. Nothing will be done on that this year. Maybe next year. But il would be a sturdy character who'd bet that anything happens on it nexb year, either. Then there's President Truman's civil rights program—the anti-poll tax bill, an anti-lynching bill, and the PEPC (the Fair Employment. Practices Commission)—which held ft big place in the news when this Blst Congress took over last January. I can't see how r.ny of it ran •, squeezed in, even for debate, there's less chance for any Tt to get passed. That will maks plenty of talk next year. too. The Senate earlier this year pasted a federal aid to education bin. Then it was .sent over to the House • for action, since the bill couldn't be law without House Approval. Education Bill Stymied But now it's • unlikely the House will act on it, so that will make one more year in which a federal aid to education bill almost made the grade in Congress, but not quit*. Since the Senate acted, there's been so much religious contrqversy over it particularly the dispute between Francis Cardinal.Spellman and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt—'hat ihe House probably will step out of Its way. Congress may try to put through R new minimum wage law—raising minimum pay toe workers in inter- stale industry from 40 Io maybe 75 cents an hour—and it may act on these; Widening social security benefits and voting money for President Trl'inan's program to arm Western Europe. But the arms program alone will probably provide almost a month's ralk in the Senate where talk Is unlimited and plenty of senators don't like the idea of sending muni- jth^is overseas. ^Meanwhile, though, there'll be plenty of news out of Congress. Congressmen will be holding hearings and issuing statements. SHANGHAI. July 28. I/Pi — The Communists are having to discharge more people from government owned enterprises in Shanghai.
