Fall and Mrs Joe Harlan, both of West Memphis Mr. Frazier had lived In Wilson all his life until a few years ago when he moved to West Memphis where he was associated with Dacus Lumber Co. said there is no'conflict oi view on the point. He fold reporters congressional leaders informed (he President Monday that the voting procedure on reorganization acts probably would be revised. Hagerty said the President was not opposed. Unexplained, however, was the testimony of Joseph M. Dodge, director of the budget, who told a House committee he "took a vigorous position" ng.ilnst tho changes. Dodge normally would express the attitude of Ihe President. Hagerty would not discuss' the apparent contradiction. Voted to Alter Rule Last Tuesday, committees in both houses voted to alter the rule on rejection of reorganization plans submitted by (he President. Under the existing statue, due to expire March 31, a majority vote from the.entire membership of the House, or the -Senate, is required to block presidential proposals to shift agencies or functions of government. That Is, 49 senators and 218 representatives have to cast a "nay" vote in order to kill a plan. Under the proposed new rule, a simple majority of the quorum present and voting could veto White House proposals. That might be as few as 25 senators of 110 House members. No sooner was the acltoh. taken flian political observers began speculating about a battle between Congress and the President. Backers of the change denied they'had anything like that in mind. But Dodge, saying he was "reflecting the view of the President." had fought hard to prevent the rule change. He was asked if he strongly opposed it, and he replied emphatically. "I do." The President mapped a busy day today. Mei Wilh CalMnef It called for_an 8 o'clock breakfast with Secretary of Stale Dulles and Mutual Security Director Harold B. S'.assen,' prior to their sched uled departure on a 10-day inspection trip in Western Europe.

The EDO slowdown Is by no means the only problem before Dulles and Stassen, although Dulles' speech made It Ihe most spectacular.

LEGISLATURE (Continued from Page 1) pean countries finally go their separate ways the . S. will Have to give 11s policies ''a little rethinking." This comment—which amounted lo strong talk from a secretary of state—was immediately .Interpreted as a threat to slash or cut off aid.
