(U.P.)—The St-nsUc WHS poised today to kill Prusitli'iU- Truniiui's rc(|iiest fur niifliorily to draft, workers who .strike- in goverumonl-.sci/.cd industries. Members aureed io vote on the "work or dnU't," provision no later tlmn 5 p. m.,'EST, today The House meaulime moved to- . Three to Get Honorary Degrees wnrd a vote on accepting Semite I amendments to the Case bill, which would pluce permanent curbs on singes in private industry. The pro- i visions nf this bill are considered | "tough," but not nearly as tough as Mr. Truman's proposed emergency bill. The. Truman 1)111 would apply only to government-seized faci'IUus. House supporters of the Case bill won the day's first lest by Adopting, 235 to 9C, a motion to suspend the rules to get the Senate amerv!- ments before the House immediately. White House callers reported Hint Mr. Trmuari still strongly wanted Congress to pass his emergency bill despite some Democratic overtures that he should withdraw it. However, the draft provision seemed plainly doomed in the Senate. Sen. Robert A. Taft. El., o.. chairman of the Republican steering Committee, *uarked the drive io kill the draft section. He predicted that the strong OOP-Democratic bloc would "pass overwhelmingly" an amendment to strike the provisioi which administration leaders termed "the nuts" of Mr. Truman's bill. Wagner Offers Amendment Sen. Robert P. Wagner, I). N. Y.. father of the Wagner net and "grand old man ol labor," presented an amendment to kill the draft section and said lie would vote against the President's measure unless it is amended drastically. i Sen. Arthur II. Vandenberg. R.,1 Midi., assailed a labor-draft as "re- ] putjiiaiit to every principle .of free -constitutional democracy:"'-,':"-.. "Nothing short of utter and urgent necessity could justify such impressment now," lie said. "And there is nothing in the present situation to warrant the belief that we are yet driven to any such totalitarian extreme." Vandenbcrg told the Senate the President's bill, stripped of its I 1 ; - bor-draft provision, still would contain sanctions amounting to "a complete guarantee, .that-, governmjnt- ser/cd industrial v,'iU.;re£uhio 'operation.:" •.. r-:!; r ',- p jj;-. . "Even if; thqyljv/erpUcurtjyJetl further," he added, ''I would slill say that it is perfectly clear to me that adequate sanctions exist without pushing to the climax of involuntary servitude. Drafting of workers, he said, would create an "army of rebels" with result that "we may create a problem greater than the one we jolvc. "An army of rebels is not calculated to be reliable or productive." he said. Case Bill Before House A coalition of Republicans and southern Democrats today W'->:i the first round in their fight for Immediate House consideration of tiie Senate-amended Case bill for permanent strike control by forcing a suspension of House rules. This permitted them to bring up for immediate consideration a rule to permit the House to decide whether to accept or reject Senate amciidmen' to the Case bill. A two-thirds vote of those present was needed to cai- ry the motion to suspend. If the House accepts the amendments, tiic bill tlicn goes to the White House. If the rule is defeated—onl;/ a majority vote is needed for pnS cage—the bill probably will Vic sent to a Senate-House conference for adjustment of differences. House Approves Case Labor Bill Legislation to End Labor Racketeering Rushed to Truman. WASHINGTON, May 2!).

The Case Bill is distinct from Mr. Truman's emergency bill.
