PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Truman's State of Union Message May Bear New Plea for Fair Deal By JACK HELL + WASHINGTON, Dec. 2G. (AP) — President Truman's opening mcs- Jiage lo the new Congress may hang nn emergency label on some "Fair Deal" proposals but lawmaker friends generally hope Jt will stick to International issues. Mr. Truman cut short his Christmas vacation at Independence, Mo, to get down to work on hts state of the union message, and two other messages to the 82nd congress. The President Is due back late today. His Stale of the Union message probably will deal at length with the situation in Korea and efforts to help Western Europe rearni. But lawmakers won't be surprised if the President dusts off parts of the program he has recommended to Congress before and suggests they are needed to strengthen the nation's defenses. One senator said, for instance, that Mr. Truman might ask again for action on the controversial Fair Employment Practices Commission Issue, on the grounds that racia" discrimination weakens the defense production effort. "N T o Serious Urging" Not many lawmakers believe, however, that the President will press seriously for enactment In the present crisis of compulsory health insurance. That would not necessarily keep him from telling Congress he believes It would be good to have. The President is almost certain tr recoiimiej>d again statehood for Alaska and Hawaii, as defense outposts. Passed by the House, the statehood bills will rile for lack of Senate action Congress ends. when the present Much more likely to get immedi- »te attention from the new Congress will be Mr. Truman's expected requests for huge military outlays at home and abroad, revision of the draft law, higher taxes, authority to set up emergency agencies and extension of the rent control law. Membership Divided These and other emergency- spawned issues are expected to take up the opening months of congress. The new membership is so closely divided between Democrats and Republicans that it probably will pass little controversial domestic legislation. Dr.rlng the brief lame - duck meeting which must end by noon, Jan. 3, the House and Senate: 1. Sent to President Truman for his signature a stop-gap bill to extend rent . controls for three months; and a bill to provide a total of $50.000,000 of food and supply aid to famine-struck Yugoslavia. 'L Passed In different forms a $3,"000,000.000 plus excess profits tax bill; a bill to provide around $18,000,000,000 for defense; and a bill to set up an unprecedented civil defense organization; Ta* Bill Post 2 Groups House-Senate conference committees have disposed of the'tax bill (and the Senate lias approved the compromise version); but they have not yet reconciled differences on the defense money and the civil defense measures. No final action on these three bills is possible until the new year. The House has scheduled only token meetings this week. The President also asked the waning Blst Congress to give him two emergency powers he says will speed up mobilization. The Senate has passed one of them, giving federal agencies wider contract powers; the House has not passed cither. The Senate has also passed, but not the. House, a bill allowing the union shop in the railroad industry. The present Congress spent two years talking about and doing some work on measures which will die with its adjournment.
