TUESDAY, MAY 3,1940 BLYTHEVrLLK (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE "1'HKRE THE NATION TODAY 81 st Congress Does Very Little In Four Months But Stage is Set For More Act/on on Hot Issues By Jame.s Marlow ^ WASHINGTON, May 3. M';—It's just beginning lo get good In Congress now. Meaning, there'll Vje a little more action. Congress him passed the half-way mark in this year's session, with (our months gone and maybe two or three left to go. Don't feel bud if you're an average person who's been rending about Congress for /our months and find now dial you can't remember pie- Mexico Proposes Inter-Ocean 'Ship Railway' cisely what's happened there. H The fact is, nothing much has happened. It's been mostly talk, argunwnt and. jockeying. Tne going has been pretty slow, particularly In the Senate, but the first few months of any session always drag. That's because those months are always used in getting the big bills reao.y lor debate and a vote in botii House and Senate, They've pretty much taken up with long committee hearinps on (be bills, and the brigades of wllnes.sc:; who make headlines. Abciu the only action completed by Congress—meaning House and Senate together—was passage of the ne\\ rent control law. Aside from that, everything else has been pretty much up in the air, with action by the House on this, t-y the Senate on that, but seldom by both houses on any one £ Still Must Vote Funds For example, the senate lias approved, a bill to give the states S3f>.- OCO.OO" to provide better care for children's health. But the House isn't ready to tackle that bill yet and it can't be come law unless the House ap proves. True, both houses okayed contin uing Ihe Marshall plan anothe yeai But—. Neither house has yet voted th money, or appropriations, for do ing It. When they get around to it. there'll be some explosion.? because a lot of men want to cut down on spendinz. This week the House expects to vole on a new labor bill. But that's only hall the Job. We won't have a. new labor law until the Senate also votes, which won't be lor some time yet. Meanwhile, this week the Senate art ol it. And approving Ihe Atlantic pact nd voting arms for Europe are till touchy problems ahead. The pact Li pretty certain to act he nod, alter quite a Senate de- wte. .Since the pact is a treaty, only Senate approval is needed. The Iou.se '.akes no part in that. But both houses have lo vote on loney for European arms. Will they rio it? You'll have to guess. Both louses now are calling more and more for economy. •forse Tumbles Through reenhouse; Its Owner, Pegasus, Pays the Bill COLORADO SPRINOS, Coin.

For instance, on a fair employment practices committee IFEPC). Henjth I'roKrarn Faces Ill-lay With the mood of the Southern Democr.Hs set sternly against the program, it doesn't, have much chance. The main reason for the slow- nesa of the Senate this session was the three-weeks' filibuster of the Southerners' against the civil rights program earlier this year. They don't want it up again. As for the President's health program, hearings will start on that, too. 1^ also seems to have no chance this year. Why? Too much opposition to it, inside and ouiside Congress, or at least to the compulsory health insurance Last week, a solid line of 36 j Republican!!, aided by eight Democrats, piled up a 44 lo 37 vote for the economy move. Senator McKellar (D-Tennl. chairman of the Appropriations Committee, decided to seek a second test because 15 senators did not vote, including nine Democrats.
