MONDAY, OCTOBER IS, 1951 BLYTHEVn.I.F. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Congress About to Adjourn-Legislation Costs Taxpayers More than Before version. Indica- the compromise WASHINGTON, Oct. 15. M*>—The* current session of Congress probably will wind up this week after putting the finishing touches on a legislative record which, whatever pise may he said about it, cost the taxpayers more than ever before in a peacetime year. ' Remaining on leaders' lULs ol legislation still to be finally approved are four more government money measures and a new Lax boost to help pay the bill. Apparently fated to KO over until next year, when the same 82nd Congress returns for its second session, are President Truman's request for revision of the Economic Controls Act and a host of le&scr es. Democrat Lender McFarland of Arizona told newsmen day that only an unexpected hitch could halt the drive toward adjournment. "There i.s not a lot of work remaining to be done, but the general sentiment both In the Senate and the House is to get out," he said. "Once members of Congress decide they want io get through, we move awfully fast." Both Houses slated minor bills for consideration today, Tomorrow the House will turn to the $5,150,000,000 tax bill, a compromise between its larger and the Senate's smaller lions were that F would be approved without much trouble Lhrre and in the Senate. The biggest of the remaining appropriations bills i-s an *fi,200,000,000 measure carrying funds for foreign economic and military aid tn the year which started July 1. The passed it last week, but the Senate appropriations committee &UU has it under study. After the Senate has voted on it, t. conference between the two houses probably will be nece.ssary to iron out differences. Also awaiting Senate action is a $1,400,000,000 bill carrying funds for military and atomic energy construction- McFarlnnd hinted Democratic leaders will seek to avoid a showdown now on President Truman's appointment of Ambassador Philip C. Jfe&Riip to be a U. S.'delegate to the United Nations- The appointment has stirred up controversy and debate on it might require considerable time. At least two senators have openly opposed any move to shelve the nomination, but whether they could muster enough support to keep the ! Sennt* In session wns problematical, j _If the Senate adjourned without ^Plejecting the nomination, Mr. Tru• man could give Jessup a recess appointment. McFarland said he would like to see Congress act finally on bills to raise postal rates and to give government workers a salary boost. But he said they will have to be cleared promptly by Senate-House conference committees or they will go over until next year. The major money bills to be tak- •n up this week will raise the total voted for the year to an estimated »96,500,000,000, In only two previous sessions of Congress has that figure been ex- eeeeded. In 1946. total appropriations were $147,000.000,000. and in 1&43 they were $114,300.000,000. Both were erucial war years, Tiie highest previous peacetime appropriation total was last year, when Congress approved allotments of w 1,200,000.060. ^ Not all the money appropriated •*thi.s year will be spent during the fusca! year—that is. by June 30. 1952 —although mcst of it undoubtedly will be obligated for expenditure in future years. Appropriations for this year are almost double the estimated federal revenues, now expected to be about S'jn.OOO.OQO.OOO including the "lake" fnm the new tax law about to be enacted.
