f AGE BI/YTHEVTUJ! (ARK.) COTTRTER NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 19SO Political Thorn Tossed At President s Proposed Health, Security Group Br JACK HELL WASHINGTON, June 1. I/Pi — A potential political ttiorn was tossed today Iiilo the path oJ President Trutnan's proposed new government department of health, education and security. The probability that Oscar n. Ewing would become the Ilvsl secretary of such n department revived some of the Senate opposition which killed a similar reorganization plan last year. Senator Wherry of Nebraska, the GOP floor leader, said Republicans aren't particularly interested In helping give cabinet stature to Eu r - infr, who is talked as a possible. Democratic candidate for governor of New York. Swale Killed 1'lnn Mr. Truman proposal last year [or a new department of welfare was clubbed clown in a 60 to 32 Senate vote last August 15 largely on the grounds that it would filvo too much power to Ewinp. the Federal Security Administrator. Swing's -support of the President's proposal for compvilsovy health insurance was a focal point in that fight anri remains a sore spot among critics now. McClcllan Says Okay Senator McClcllan (D-Ark). who attacked last year's plan on the grounds that It seemed to open the way for what he called "sociali/.cd medicine." said the new proposal looks satisfactory to him on that point. McClellan heads the Senate Expenditures Committee which will hold hearings if any resolution disapproving the new plan is offered. A majority of the full membership of either house can kill a reorganization plan. Senator Wherry of Nebraska, the OOP floor leader, said he thinks there will be opposition to the new plan. Ewlng May He Head If the plan survives an expected Senate challenge. Ewing may become a department head with what the President himself said are "essentially the same duties and authority as are now vested In the Federal Security Administrator." Tn yesterday's message to Congress submitting the plan, the President said that the surgeon general anri the commissioner of education will "retain all the statutory authority and duties now vest*d in them." ' Along with the commissioner of •octal security they would report directly to the secretary, who would transmit their views Ho the President. "Added Safeguard" The President said this provision "represents 'an" additional safeguard against the fear of the possibility that the views of these officials could be unduly subordinated." McClellnn said that as he viuder- rtands the plan the surgeon gen eral 'and commissioners of education will continue to make the poll cies for their agencies. He said that wasn't true of last year's rejected plan. 'It's a decided improvement over lasl years proposal nnd it meets some of the serious objections made against the 1949 plan," he said.
