JFK Wins A Round But Fight Isn't Over WASHINGTON (AP)-The Kennedy administration has won the first battle of the new Congress— the showdown over the House Rules Committe. But not even the victors claimed it was a major breakthrough for the President's program. Only the tougher fights to come will show whether it was a real or hollow victory. The tough fights were shaping up even as the Congress members were welcoming each other back to the Capitol, meeting new members and generally going about the task of getting l>ack into business. Republicans fired opening salvos at the President's estimated $99-billion budget, saying that his proposed tax cuts plus bigger spending would bring a whopping deficit. Some of the GOP's young Turks let it be known they intend to offer alternatives to Kennedy's programs rather than just condemn them. The first day's drama centered on the House vote of 235 to 196 to retain 15 members on the Rules Committee instead of having the total drop back down to 12 as it was before the last session. Presumably the enlarged membership would give liberal supporters of the Kennedy program an 8-7 edge and keep the committee from falling back under conservative control. Obviously the result pleased the President. He had contended that unless the committee was enlarged his program would be emasculated. His aides were saving their cheers for later. One top administration leader, asked if the rules outcome meant the House would now give the Kennedy program its blessing, said bluntly: "Hell, no.!" The same rules fight was won two years ago by a narrow 217 to 212 margin under the prodding of the late House Speaker Sam Rayburn. By passing it this time by a much safer margin, the House gave Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., his biggest victory since he replaced Rayburn a year ago. For the President, however, this represented only the first of many lurdles in attempting to get Congress to approve tax cuts and revisions, federal aid to education, health care for the elderly financed through Social Security, and other proposals. These measures all will be subject to extensive hearings and uncertain action by originating committees before they even reach the rules group. Coming in the forefront of them may be a bill introduced in the house Wednesday and to be offered in the Senate Monday to set up a youth conservation corps and to authorize a program of local public service works projects. This measure, aimed at putting' a minimum of 50,000 youths on the rolls at an anual cost of $3,500 each, seemed calculated to raise the hackles of conservative Republicans and Democrats. It did. '"How can the President suggest adding around $175 million a year to our civilian expenditures and propose tax cuts at the same time when we may face the biggest deficit in our history?" Asked Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois.

CLEARANCE SALE Another Fire In Big Building NEW YORK (AP)-The second smoldering fire in as many days brought firemen to the Empire State Building today. They ripped out a section of wall in a public hallway on the 31st floor to uncover and extinguish a fire in insulation. An attendant on the floor had found the wall hot. No one was evacuated from the building. A series of fires Wednesday in the 102-story building—the world's tallest—burned out several offices and delayed thousands who work in the building. A carelessly thrown cigarette was tentatively blamed for the fire, which spread through a utility shaft thai runs tht -height of the building, BUGS—MEDIUM RARE A former "cure" for cancer required the swallowing of roasted insects. Of course, today, we know this remedy was foolish. Though we're still looking for the cause of cancer, medical science has made tremendous strides in its detection and treatment.
