PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 1949 THE NATION TODAY Senate Ready to Begin Grind fn Effort to Revise Labor Legislation of 80th Congress By James Marlow WASHINGTON, June 4. Wt—lt you're IntcrrstotJ in labor, you'd tetter polish your e,vcgla.sse.s and gel ready for an awful lot of heavy wading. The Senate, at last, will tackle on Monday the job of trying to ffrite a new labor law. And once that stalls there'll be a flood of words out of Washmg- K>n on the Senate arguments, which may lake weeks. Since (here can be no new labor + , law at all both Honors ap-I , - . . prove a bill, onre the Senate im- !|nnki!i(f. among Republicans and Lshes, it will be the turn of the Demt ;rrat.s alike, that (he new law may bo written on the floor through House. That win uirie more time, maybe a week or 10 day*. Ai:ri that will mean another torrent of newjs. On the eve of the ft? arguments T don't think there's a man alii r e who can predict Ihe outromf precisely. One ihJnp .teem.? .SUIT: Neither President Truman nor oi'Kitnizod labor will got from Cong IPS* the kind of new labor law they w:inrpd. Both wnnted Congress to wipe out ^ t e T;ift-H;iiUry I HIV, which Congrc>,s pa.^ed in 1047 when Die Republicans were in control. And in it.s place they wanted Congiw^ to restore the old Waener act. with ;i few inm<T chftuse.s. Promises Hani (n Fulfill fine Wagner net. pa.^ed in 1935 when the IJemnrrHts wrre in control of Congress, put rtvt riot ions on in a nag en lent but none on labor. 'The T-H Art replaced the Wanner act, put some restrictions on management and pin more restrictions on labor than ever before.) In fact. Mr, Truman had promised, now that hU Democrats con- | trolled Congress, (hat T-H would ; be wiped out and the Wagner act j amendment.s offered while the argument is going on, ITonsr Position Uncertain WliiU the House may do about a labor bill i.s even more of a mystery. Some wppks ayo. iifier 10 days of debair and jockeying, the House 1 was just rjn (he pofnt of approving I a new hfhor bill and sending ft to j the Senate for action when— Whstn, i( dropped the whole i thins and hasn't brought it up ] shirr.

And it's just about as much ot a puzzle now n.s it wa.-s six months; ago. except thai Mr Truman and organized labor can't .src the same chanre of selling what they want thai they could i" January.

Mrs- Valck doesn't know whal to make ot it. The healthy ben seems to think nothing is odd at all. She cackles just like other liens and Cor just as long, Mrs Valek says she is going to put a Hal egg under a setting hen to see if tl hatches a Oat chicken.

Greer Dies In St. Louis Hospital Dr. Edna Nies Addresses Osteopaths Boys Oppose Compulsory Health Plan LITTLE ROCK, June 4. «>>— President Truman's proposed compulsory health insurance program was condemned by Arkansas youth yesterday. The Boys State House of Representatives here adopted by a 2-1 margin a resolution opposing the President's plan. Mr. Truman Is to visit Little Rock next week. S'.alc Education Commissioner A. B. Bonds said, in addressing members of the organization in the House chamber, "the future of democracy in the United states depends on youth. You are the prime target of the communists, so it behooves you always to be on guard." He said Communists "promise you free medical care, free schooling and free everything and all they ask in return is your liberty." Bonds said a real citizen has a duty of seeing that governments remain in the hands of the people. "It is awfully easy for an elected eroup of officials to set up a dictatorship," the educator warned. "Look at the government in your own town. Who runs it? If it is not in the hands of the people, find out why," Medical Student'* flea for Bend Again Denied LITTLE . ROCK. June 4— IJfl— A motion to release from jail a 23- year-old medical student charged with murder was denied for a sec- oiul time yc.sterday. In rejecting Harold Raymond Houchlns, Jr.'s plea for bail, Pulas- kl County Circuit Judge Gus Kulk commented: "The main tiling Is to guarantee thEs boy's appearance here for trial. The court should not take chances In such cases." Houchins is charged with first degree murder "in perpetration ot the crime of robbery" in the slaying of Seth L Reed, 61-year-old Cinrksvlllc insurance executive. Reed, his skull smashed, was found in the bloody bathroom of a Little Rock hotel last Nov. 23. Houchins' first motion for release under bond was rejected last month after Judge Fulk was told by Prosecutor Edwin Duna\vays that the defendant was being investigated In "another murder."
