OT— Congress seemed about ready today to shelve until 1950 most of tlw political hot potatoes of President Truman's program. M«rked for delay until nest year —when most of the members will b« beating the buslies for re-election—are measures Involving civil rights, larm subsidies, health Insurance, tax Increases and social security expansion. Congress may be voting on some of (hese while primary campaigns are under way. It probably will have written its record one way or the oilier on all of them by the time the voters decide In Novcmlx-r or next year whether lo keep the Democrats in power or give (lie Republicans control of one or both nouses. Senator Lucas of DHno!.*, tlin Democratic leader, indicated to reporters that, the administration will consider it a job well dnnr if Scn- Hte action pan be finished bv .inly SI on three maior ilcms: iCouse- spproved reriproral trade legislation, a substitute for HIP Til ft-Hartley labor law and the North Atlantic Treat v.

Indications that the House may soon to trv Us hand again a Taft-Harlley rcpcnler Voucht a comment from Lucas that the Senale will not debate a similar bill at the same time. Chairman I.esinski <D-Mich1 said the House Labor Committee will have another repealer ready tor floor action in two or Ihrce weeks. Reo. Powell (D-NY1 said a subcommittee will send to Ihc lull committee wllhtn 1C davs n hill to set up a Fair Employment Practices Commission—one of the key polnls In the President's civil rights program. But Lucas said he doubts that the Senale—which always bumps into * Southern filibuster on such measures—will find »nv time to lake up civil right,'! bilk In tn'" session. Nor can he find room on the schedule, he added, for Icuislntion to carry out Mr. Truman's nvooosnl to set up a commit.sory health insurance system financed by payroll taxes. traders of both houses seemed In agreement that nothing will be done In this session about the new administration farm plan.
