fAMTWBLY* BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MAY », H Senate Seeks To Catch House On Law-Making . Upper Branch Has Crowded Calendar Of Arguments WASHINGTON. May 29. (fl 1 ) — Senators will try this week to catch up with the House on law-making but the outlook for much progress was gloomy. While House members were en- Joying a ]0-"riay vacation they could spend campaigning for re-election, senators could see only a long series of arguments ahead. The pending business in the Senate is the controversial "basing point" price bill to legalize uniform delivered prices and prohibit antitrust prosecutions In certain cases Involving freight cost absorption. A vote on that—after two previous Senate rejections—appeared uncertain but may come later this week. Democratic Leader Lucas of Illinois is threatening night sessions Thursday and Friday to get the work along. Two Other Measures Stacked up awaiting action are two other measures that breezed through the House weeks ago: 1. A bill granting the farm price support agency another $2,000,000,000 of funds. 2. A vast expansion of the social security program. Other measures that have cleared the House were promised attention of Senate committees during the week. ; Topping these te the $29,000,000,000 omnibus appropriation supply- Ing operating funds for most government agencies lor the new fiscal year that begins July 1. Senate sub-groups- have not yet completed their decisions as to amounts the various government departments and agencies should receive. When they complete that detailed work the full appropriations committee must decide upon totals before that bill reaches the Senate. Draft Extension The House-passed two year extension of the draft n^t is scheduled for hearings before the Senate Armed Services Committee, starting Thursday. The present peacetime selective service act expires June 24 and Senate leaders hope to complete action before' then. As passed by the House the measure would continue to require registration and classification of young men from 18 to 26 years. But actual drafting Into the armed services •would be delayed, until ordered by Congress. Rent Controls The question of extending federal rent controls, which lapse June 30, also is due for early attention by the Senate Banking CommiUee. A compromise extension has been voted by the house committee. It would continue present federal "rent ceilings six months and allow them to extend another six months beyond that If cities or states requested them. Overhanging Senate action on all legislation was Lucas' promise to make a second attempt at bringing up the controversial fair employment practices bill, by a petition to cut off debate.
