M 1 ) — Congress expressed hope yesterday thi\l when dcalli comes to the last members of the Grand Army of the Republic and at the United Confederate Veterans they will be buried In Arlington National Cemetery. The House adopted without dis sent n resolution to that effect which the Senate previously had approved. It docs not require Prcsi- lentlal approval. The resolution Is simply an expression of sentiment, The next o <ln of the veterans would have to consent lo the Arlington services EDSON advantage.

(if) — Governor McMath yesterday appointed J. Wendell Henry, a Conway attorney, as acting chancellor of the Ninth Chancery District, for a pciiod of 30 tlnys. He will serve In the absence of Chancellor J. n. Ward, Hussellvllle. because of llliics. 1 .. and marie recommendation.*. Th, was where the first billion u saved. Tlicre was considerable coj plaint by non-mctubcrs that bl?i. exits weren't made by the committee. But the full membership had Its chance to make further evils itcin- by-ltem when Ihe Appropriations Committee repotted the bill to what \a known us the Committee ol Whole Ko\tse. This wns what took the month and bored most Congressmen to tears. Attendance was never big. This led Rep, 13wight Rogers ol Florida to propose that there should be record roll calls, instead ol voice votes on all appropri-' Eons. Furthermore, this lt*m-by-iUm oiuldcratlon by the CommJtt**' of Whole didn't work. It iSidnt conomize enough. So in th« end, House had to resort to two uecr dodge*. First was an amendment by Hep. ohn Taber of New York, «nd Alert Thomas of Texas. It proposed avings of IfiQO.OOO.OOO by cutting xpcndituies for travel by JO p*r cut and 10 per cent for »fl other •xpensrs—payroll, rent etc.—riiht cross the board. Heans To Keep Vacincie* Ya*»t Second was an amendment by Jep. Den P. Jensen of Iowa. It pro•ides that Ofl per cent of all vacancies In government Job* during th» "l&cnl year beginning July 1 ihafl :iot be rilled in this year. -. Kxccptlons U> these two amendments were made for the military services, and to doctors and nursti in the Public Health Service and Veteran's Administration. There is some rather fuziy language in the Taber-Thomas amendment which under one interpretation would give the President tht iwwer to veto particular Items In the appropriations bill aa finally passed by Congress. This veto is an old point of controversy, President Truman would like to have It. But there in *om< question as to .its constitutionality. It would give an unscrupulous pr«- ident almost unlimited power ov»r govern ment. The omnibus appropriation, bill has now been tossed to the Senate Appropriations Committee. The real success or failure of this experiment will be judged by how the Senate amends the 434-page House bill. Would You Llk. New Freedom From Monthly Suffering? uld.
