FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1949 BI.YTOEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE mm THE NATION TODAY Truman's Democratic Congress Accomplishes Less Than Did Maligned GOP Bossed Session \f By .lames Marlow WASHINGTON, May 13. </l>j— This is a goorl time to call the roll on Comiress. It's mid-May, with this year's regular session of Congress more than half over. Except lor renewing rent control, this Democratic Congress hasn't finished any major item in President Truman's promised program. And yesterday Senator Tail of Ohio, one of the jockeys of the Republicans in Congress, predicted defeat for a large part of the program. At this jwint there seems a bet-*-—— — • • ter chance for his prediction to come true that) for a large part of the Truman program. Take a look at the score: Homing— (lie Senate has passed a bill to provide government housing for low income groups. The House is expected to do the same. So this probably will become law. Labor Bill Dormant Labor—The ITouse tarmptcd the new labor bill which Mr. Tnunan and organized labor wanted to replace the Tuft-Hartley act. Neither house has passed a new hill yel \Tpvbe neiiher will. If Congress does act. It almost certainly produce a new labor !mv lc,U different from the one Mr. Truman asVfd. Medical Insrrance—In spite ol € 1 the hullabaloo about compnl- ry medical insurance, and Mr 'Truman's prodding of Con'^ this srems to have no chance o Minimum wage—Mr. Tinman anc his lieutenants wanted Congress tc raise the minimum wacic from 4 1 cents an hour to 75, besides tnak ing some other changes in the minimum wage law. If Congress aeLs on this, it probably will raise Ihc wa?,c io less than ID cents. lUnclor tne law an employer I product crosses slate lines must not pay his employes less than 40 cents an hour. That minimum wns set back in 1940 when living wa.s a lot cheaper than now.) Civil Richts Bill Sidetracked Social Security — Mr. Truman wanted social security pay raised and more people aiven the benefit of social security. This is still buried In the works In Congress. You'll have to whether anything will be done about it at all. Civil Rights—This seem like a gone goose. The Senate wrangled over it lor weeks early this session and never sot further than preliminaries. In effect, the Southern (•Democrats won in their • effort to .sidetrack it. Farming—Secretary of Agriculture Brannan came up with a ne'V farm program. This has received praise and criticism. Its chances lock chilly. Taxes—Mr. Tmman wanted about » S4.000.0flfl.000 tax raise, mostly on business, to help meet government costs. He still 1 wants this and said so again yesterday. Republicans and some of Mr. Truman's mnst dependable allies in Cons;i-s are against it. They say "cut ex'- -uses, this is no time to raise taxes." After reading this you're probably snyinir "the President's program is beginning to look raggedy." It sure Is. •tate Hospital Lacks '•unds to Make Wards "or Felons Escape-Proof LITTLE ROCK. May 13. OP)—It impossible to make Ihe criminal wards at the slate hospital "escape n'oof" under present conditions, ;}r. George w. Jackson, hospital superintendent, said yesterday. He said, however, that steps are ins taken to make the wards as secure as possible with "all the money we can allocate for this pur- pn.sf at this time." Hus stitlement was made in com- menlims on recommendations made vrstcrday by Stale Police Director I'eimr.n LhH'srv. At the request of Governor McMatll.
