ARBOGAST WASHINGTON, Nov. 27.— (AP) —Congress reconvened today for a short "Lame Duck" session and got a prod | from President Truman to extend rent controls and vote statehood for Alaska and Hawaii.

He plugged for statehood for Alaska and Hawaii at a conference svith Democratic congressional leaders. In line with Mr. Truman's wishes. the leaders made statehood for Alaska the first order of business for the Senate. At the same time. however, an agreement was reached to lay that measure aside temporarily whenever there are appropriations or other emergency matters to handle. II the Alaska measure goes through, statehood for Hawaii will be next on the docket. Schedule Outlined • The Schedule was outlined to reporters by Senate Democratic Leader'Lucas (III) after the White House huddle of the party's legislative leaders just ahead of the opening gavel., , Lucas said Senator OTvIahoney <D-Wyc*»wuJd move tol«k* up --' ***• charge that fa«d manslaughter. Young Oallion is charged with striking his father, Ruff Gallion, on the head with a one-by-four-lnch board Aug. 1 at their tenant farm home at Pascoia, a few miles northwest of Haytl, Mo. The elder Gallion died the following day in a Memphis hospital. Clyde Malone, owner of the land Gallion rented and one of the two state witnesses who testified this morning, said on the witness stand that Mr. Gallion had accused his son of taking family money. Mr- Gallion told his son to leave or face a whipping, Mr. Malone testified. During the argument, young Gallion struck Ills father with the four-foot long board, he said. The youth was arrested the next holds the gratitude of an undcter. mir.ed number of passengers whom he saved from injury atui death yesterday morning by preventing an eight-car train from striking a broken rail. "We would have hit that broken rail at 60 miles ari hour," Conductor Sam Newton of St. Louis told Frisco Agent F. X. Schumahcr of Osceola. Train Delayed SO Minnies The train was the Frisco Lines' northbound No. 803, which was an hour and a half late in reaching Osceola from Memphis because of the broken rail. Mr. Newton said the rail, mad>> brittle by cold weather, probably had broken when freight train No. 835 passed over it earlier en route from St. Louis to Memphis. The train that would have struck the broken rail, spotted about 8 a.m. yesterday by Jones and two other office in Chaffee, Mo., division point for the railrcad. Four of the train's eight cars were coaches and tho rest were mail and express cars. U Inches of Kail Out Fourteen inches of rail was completely out nmi 10 morn feet of It were loosened from the tics at a point one-quarter of a mile north of Driver and six miles south of Osceola. Jones, his brother Waddell, 18, ami H. B. Horton, 20. were walking along the track when they saw the break. Jones immediately went to the Holt Store a quarter of u mile north of the break and told Miss Inez Kincaid, the owner, to call Wilson. The train, however, had left Wilson at 8:02 a.m. and was due at Osceola at 8:24. A. A. Johnson, a fanner residing In the Driver vicinity, was in /the store at the time. He drove"" the «™, filibuster by Southerners. The motion to take up the bill is jubject 'to debate. Both statehood bills passed the House earlier this year. The scheduled plans came under fire almost as soon as they were announced. Senator . Wherry (R- Neb), _the Republican leader, told newsmen his party will not go along. : The NebrasUan said he thinks the Lamei Duck session should devote its major efforts to passing tax legislation and emergency appropriations. Beyond that, he said, he sees no emergency requiring action before the new Congress meets in January. Wherry called on President Truman to revise his domestic and foreign policies "to square with the results- of the recent election" andj submit a new program to Congress. He put the President's request for rent control extension in the category of business that can wait. I'oint of Conflict That was another point of con€ t with Lucas' plans. The Demotic leader expressed hope to vsmen that Congress will pass a temporary extender at the short session as requested by Mr. Truman, Hu thought committee bearings would be "very short." In line with that idea Chairman Maybank (D-SC) of the Scnalc Banking Committee called a committee session for 10 a.m. tomorrow to consider the President's re quest. House Speaker Rayburn missed the 'Irst Monday mornl"f? "qunrter- bach conference" wit the Pn"-l- dent ^Jis train from Texas 1: '" = !r- layed. Malone also testified that the elder Gallion had been drinking on the day he was fatally Injured. Earlier, in examining prospective Jurors. Sharon Pate, defense attorney, Indicated that self defense may be claimed. The other witness was tt Dr. Benton, who testified as to Mr. Gallon's death. The trial was expected to continue through this afternoon.
