WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 1949 BLYTHEVITXE <ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE flTI I HI NATION TODAY v Truman's 81 st Congress Doing Less Than GOP Bossed 80th; 'Recess Time is Drawing Near f By Jime« Marlow WASHINGTON. May 25. (/ft— That's a much meeker sound President Truman's Democrats are making In Congress now. They came in with a roar in control of the 81st Congress, alter blasting the Republicans' 80th Congress as a "do-nothing" bunch. And when they came in they had the President's approach, which was the Democrats' campaign promises, spread out like a big least. Almost five months have passed since they opened up shop. And what Ims this 81st Congress done about, the program? About all it's done is to pass the* — CIO Steelworkers Open Contract Talks with Alcoa PITTSBURGH, May 25. ClO-Unlted Steelworkers and Hie Aluminum Company of America open contract talks today wlilch the union calls "the first major negotiations Involving the 1049 wage policy."

The slcnlUr to those new rent control law. Republicans and Democrats that over. teamed up to put Aud the time Is getting painfully short to do any more. Yesterday Senator Scott Lucas of Illinois, leader of the Senate Democrats, came out or a White House conference with Mr. Truman and said: Just Two Months Left He expects this Congress to finish up for 1949 by July 31. or just a little more than two months from now. What's going to bo done by then? Senator Lucas listea these three things as the main goals: 1. Repeal ol the Tad-Hartley net. The House took one crack at this, argued a week, got boxed up. and lit talking of trying again. j^ If the Senate ever tries to tackle Vit, you can look for weeks of debate, weeks that will take up much or most of the remaining time. ->. Senate approval of the North Atlantic pact. This probably will be done and It's of the utmost importance in our foreign dealings that It be done. But^this. too. may take a lot of time in debate because not all the senators think it's a good thing. So that will cliew up « lot of days or weeks in the remaining two months. 3. Continuing the recipocra! trade program. This program, which affects our foreign trade, has been In effect for years. The House lias okayed it. but not the Senate. Many Tilings Undone When the Senate gets around to it, more debate, more time used up. But what of the health Insurance program which Mr. Truman talked so much about? No chance for it this year, Lucas said. With the time schedule Luca: has set, you can kiss goodbye to any chance (or-action on the civi rights program. Housing? The Senate has passed a public housing bill. The House hasn' (£1 grappled with it yet. And it may no pass there. Republicans In the House ar ganging up on the housing bill and if enough Democrats join them, goodbye housing bill. And congress hasn't yet voted the money for carrying on the Marshall plan. Nobody knows what's going to happen to that. House members, including some Democrats, are' figuring on cutting it to ribbons. And the Senate hasn't voted money for it, either. It's due for R big argument and maybe a big cut in the senate. And then there was a new farm program the Trumanites laid before Congress. Senator Lucas' schedule doesn't make any room for that. As for Mr. Truman's Idea of raising taxes, that seems dead and done for. Altogether, the things the Democrats are now saying they'll do this year are getlng smaller and smaller. Of course 1B49 is only the first session of the 81st Congress. The second session starts next January. Maybe something will happen in sought by the Steelworkers from the steel Industry.

It seems she answered the telephone for her daughter and when the she it, dear?" When Ihe daughter told her the boy's name the mother said: "Did he yon for a diitc?" With thill, says the mother, her daughter lost her temper, and said It was "impossible to have any privacy at home." Undoubtedly llic innocent sound Ing rjuestlon thut caused the flare- up were Just Ihe straws that broke the camel's back. It Isn't likely any daughter would have become so uixset over sucl an Incident unless for a long time she had felt that her mother wusn'l allowing her any privacy at hmnc Many mothers who arc niiliirally nlereslfd In all the details of their children's lives full to see that, what .hey consider only "normal Interest" nay seem like prying to their children. Actually, whether the Interest Is rrltating or not depends on how It Is shown. Continual questioning Is almost certain to seem like prying.

Rice Futures Market Seen as 'Stabilizer' LITTLE ROCK. Ark., Mny 'J5 — (jl'j—A futures market for rice would remove some of the fJiituntions in fortune for producers of the commodity, says Sam L.
