Byrd May Seek To Curb Use Of Senate Rules To Stall Legislation ffniUicstun ^rtus 13'A WASHINGTON Democratic loader Robert Byrd said Thursday he was "fed up" with the use ot Senate rules to stall legislation and threatened to seek curbs next J anuary. Byrd said he refuses "to give a "wholesale, carte blanche veto" to any senator and added, in an emotional arm-waving, desk-thumping speeech. "if Democrats don't like it they can relieve me of the leadership." Byrd's outburst came after assistant GOP leader Ted Stevens said that at least three Republicans would object to a time limitation on the foreign aid money bill. Byrd revealed that the Senate Democratic Policy Committee and committee chairmen had met Wednesday and • • o v e r- whelmingly'.' decided to seek final adjournment Oct. 14. But he said there are still about 25 "must" bills the Senate must act on and the Oct. 14 date cannot be met without lime agreements on the measures. "1 know why we are having trouble getting time agreements," Byrd said. "But. 1 won't 'say why because 1 still hope we can get time agreements. "But if we can't, everybody will know." Sen. Orrin Hatch, R- Utah, interrupted to complain that Byrd was heaping all the blame on the Republicans and said "the minority has done an awful lot of cooperating." Byrd cut him off in mid- sentence. He said that, as an example, Republicans were invoking the three-day rule — under which a bill cannot be taken up without unanimous consent until three days after it comes out of committee. Byrd said the three-day rule was being invoked oil "miserable, pitiful relief bills" and added, pointing at Hatch, "it comes from your side of the aisle. "It's not the minority leader and it's not the minority whip," Byrd added. "I know who they are." The Democratic leader — a master of the rules — said "it may be time to take a new look" at them. "I've become so fed up in this very Congress by the abuse of the rules to hamstring the Senate ... I'm ready to change the rules," Byrd said.

He lashed out at senators who put a "hold" on a bill because they are out of town and other who refuse time agreements because "they want everybody to how and scrape before them. To clear every bill, imagine that. "I'll never be a majority leader and go to every member and clear a bill, an amendment ... no wholesale, carter blanche veto is going to be given to any senator."

Newscenteri The simple facts about running a classified ad in the News. If you've never run a classified ad in a newspaper, you might think it's a complicated process. Actually, it's not. In The Galveston Daily News, particularly, it's one of the simplest things you can do. Here's some basic information to assist you. How much does a classified ad in The Galveston Daily News cost? Much less than you probably think. You can actually run an ad in the News for as little as $3. That's because the News offers a low-cost classified rate for private individuals called PAL Ads. For only $3 you can run a three-line classified ad for three days. Or, for just $6 your ad can run for 10 days. With a PAL Ad you can sell any kind of merchandise — up to $150 on the $3 plan or $500 on the $6 plan (The price must appear in the ad). The cost of other classified ads varies, depending on the number of lines you use and the number of days your ad runs. When should I run my ad? There really is no best day of the week. For best results, we recommend that you schedule your ad to run for 10 days. As soon as you get results, you can withdraw your ad and be billed only for the days it ran.
