(AP) — Legislation to let additional thousands of European refugees come to 'country to make their homes the Senate Just before last night. The bill, liberalizing the 1948 Displaced Persons Law by raising the number that can be admitted to 366,000, caps a long and bitter struggle in the Senate. Republicans and Democrats in almost equal numbers Joined to put it over, by a final vote of X to IS. As passed, after stormy session that lasted nearly 12 hours and set » new record on the number of roll call votes C30), It conforms In Its essentials to a measure passed by the House last June. ,,Th« argument was 'largely over terms on which various members felt utrongly — there was general agreement all along on the basic idea of admitting more refugees. The Senate bill eliminates provisions of the 1M8 act which President Truman assailed in his election campaign ex discriminatory against Catholics and Jews. He repeatedly hii prodded Congress for changes in the existing law. Differences stil remain to be ironed out with the House, but Senator Kilgore (D-WVa). a leader th the fight for the legislation In the form that was approved, said he expected no difficulty in this. • On the final rot*, 27 Democrats |nd 31 Republicans voted for passage. Opposed were 8 Democrats »nd T Republicans. gfrt bill would extend the presen' pS^-am for a year beyond June SO and Increase the number of refugees eligible for admission to this country from 306,000 to 359,000, including orphans and adopted children. Requirements Changed ': It lisa would wipe out require menis that 40 pre cent of the DP 1 . admitted be from the Baltic state. • mi 30 per cent be farmers. It wouli advance the eligibility "cut-off date from Dec. 22, 1945 to Jan. 1949. ... : Together, these three clian •rase the principal provisions tha gave rise to. the charges of reli gious and racial discrimination in the present law.

After convening at noon, the Senate started voting on the controversial legislation at 2 'p.m. and kept • t it until almost midnight under a ' previous agreement to stay in continuous session until final action. A heavily-amended version of the House bill was proposed by the Senate Judiciary committee under the leadership of Chairman McCarran o-Nev). But the committee amendments went down tb defeat one after allot her. . Bill Result of. Hard Work *i the end, the Senate replaced It by a vote of 48 to 25, witli & substitute measure becked by a coalition of 18 Republicans and Democrats. On this roll call, 25 Democrats and J4 Republicans voted for the sub- ititute. •; The first test of strength came on the question of defining a displaced person. A committee amend' TraM ft Draogtav w 1 « • B • 1 1 y ment would have revised the pres- nt definition to include persons of German'ancestry driven from the 'lomes in eastern Europe after the Backers of the substitute opiwsed nclusion of these German expellees, numbering 8.000,000 or more, on the ground they would lessen the llmlt- *d Quotas for DP's as presently dc"Ined. The amendment lost 48 lo 37. This was a key issue and the vote vas a tip-off that opponents of the committee bill had the upper hand. The legislation as passed retains he present definition embracing only those war refugees who are the concern of the International Refugee Organization, a United Nations agency. It. provides for the admission of 295,000 of^ these IAO displaced persons, 18,000 former members of the Polish army now In Great Britain, and 10,000 Greeks forced to flee their homes during World War II the subsequent, civil war In Greece.

The bill also provides for the ivon-quota entry of 5,000 IRO displaced orphans and 20,000 orphans adopted by American citireiw. The latter may come from any one of 25 western European nations, The number of adopted orphans was railed from 5,000 lo 20.000 by an amendment offered by Senator Humphrey (D-Minn). The provision for 5,000 residents of the Isturian peninsula was put In by an amendment of Senator Ives (R.-NY). t* of Lk- fit Rock High •chool and » former Draug-j hon «*ud«nt, is I now •mplortd u a bookkeeper for Cox & Courtn«y, Pub-. lie Accountant!, LittU Rock.
