MONDAY, MAY IS, 1949 BI/miEVn.l.E (ARK.) COURIEK NEWS PAGE SEVMT House to Vote On Housing Deal Democrats Seeking ., To Give Truman at •fr" Least One Victory By Ki-ancl* M. t.r May WASHINGTON, May IS. liTl— DcmocraUc leaders hope to hand President Truman Uiis week, at last, one major victory In his program. This would lie In housing. The House tentatively set a vote for Thursday or Friday on the administration's rmilll-bUllon dollar housing bill, it calls for a far-thing program of slum clearance, low- rent public housing and farm hous- !«K aids. House passapp would head the legislation toward the President's desk. The Senate approved ft April 31 by a top-heavy 57 to 13 vote. However, there still Is a possibility the measure may be delayed In the House Rules committee. Moreover, Republicans a"d some Democrats are expected to try to amend it on the. floor. Faces Slow. Itnuth (lolnf Nfeanwhile. other parts of Mr. Truman's program still hit rough or slow going. In the first four and a half months of this Congress Mr. Truman has seen passed only one major bill based on his domestic legislative proposals of the 1948 poli- iiral campaign. That one. conlinu- ^f.g rent control, was not quite *hat lie wanted, in • number of way*. Now, with only two and * half months remaining before Congress Is supposed to adjourn, here Is about the way other portions of his program are Retting on: Taxes—Economy blocs on both sides of the capitol are crying for slashes in government spending— Instead of tax boosts. Mr. Truman wants n M.000.000.000 tax Increase. If congress cannot balance the budget by economy, it may try to find means of getting more money In the treasury in the fiscal year beginning July 1. Labor—There nrf behind the ncenes efforts To find » compromise, following House defeat of the first effort of administration forces to repeal the Tail-Hartley labor law. No date is set yet for a new showdown in either house. The problem is to find a way to deal with na* tional emergency strikes. This Involves decisions on whether to use Injunctions, plant seizures, or both. Mouse Studiel "uueallm Kill Social Security—The House Ways ^nd Means committee now is work^Kig on » bill. Indications now are that it is disposed to write one to Mr. Truman's liking, going well along the way with his requests for extension of old age insurance to many millions more persons, and boasting benefits. But this bill may get caught In a session-end legislative logjam. Education—The Senate has approved n bill providing MOO.000,000 in federal aid to schools. Democratic leaders think it has n good chance or passing the House, too. Civil Rights—A Senate filibuster stopped such legislation early In the session. Efforts to write anti- segregation amendments into housing and labor bills have been defeated. Some friends of anti-segregation legislation want it handled Independently, and a House subcommittee now is working on a general civil rights measure. There is doubt it -will pass at this session of Congress. Medicine—Mr. Trumans' proposal for a national health insurance plan—special payroll taxes and government '.jayment of doctor and hospital bills—probably will not get to a vote until 1950. and its face is doubtful then, roreign Trade—Th« House has Staphorsters Pull Ostrich Act to Avoid 'Evil Eye' ——.^••^•••^^•••^— .^- —. ••—•»*. •• —^__^_.—.

OS ANGELES, May 16 <,Vi— t Grateful is grateful today for back to back the Atlantic Pact. The 14 bishops, in n statement j Friday, snid they support the pact !

It in not likely to be more than a small par I of the administration's new "production payment" program that some farm orgiin- Izatinns have attacked as a subsidy of "dole" program. If the housing bill gets to a vote it will top a busy week. 00,000 Refugees jiven Shelter in Camps in Trieste ROME --L1V- Over tUO.OUO ief- ;res nud pii.soneis of \vtir from utern Kurnpc passed through rleste's IriuisU ennips Alnre the iri of the wtvr.
