MONDAY, JUNE 12, 1950 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Congress Leaders Nearly End Hopes For August Finish WASHINGTON, Juno 12. (AP) — ^Congressional leaders have all but "ibandoncd hope for final adjournment of the 8lst Congress by August 1. There Is just too much major legislation pending and many members seeking reelection tills year arc reluctant to go home until the performance record looks more impressive. Speaker Rayburn (D-Texl said it would be "optimistic" to look for adjournment by August I, although the House docket is In fairly good shape. The outlook isn't so rosy in the Senate, where a filibuster by Senator Cain (R-Wash) last week delayed action until today on a bill extending the federal rent control program. The slow-down also may put off a decision on other major matters. House Hills Unified Four big bills passed by tlv House are bottled tip In the Senate and each of them is controversia enough to require lengthy discus sion. Still to be acted on are Housc- passed bills creating a Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC); appropriating SSO.OCO.OW,- ^000 for operation of the government ^'in fiscal year which starts July 1;: broadening the Social Security program and extending the draft law. Filibuster Threat An earlier attempt to take up the FEPC bill ran into the threat of a lilibuster, but Senate leaders say - they still hope to get the bill to a vote. They also want to dispose of the rent control bill this week in time to start debate on the bill expand ng the Social Security program. A nove to shelve the rent controls ex- rCnsion is scheduled for a vote today. The House originally planned to debate the rent bill this week also, but plans now to lay It aside until the Senate acts. Appropriation Bill The omnibus appropriation bill which took the House more than a month to pass, may reach the Senate floor late this month. A mini- muni of several weeks debate is ex pected before the Senate passes tin big measure and sends it to a Sen ate-House conference. With the current fiscal year end ing this month, a "stopgap" bill fi nancing federal agencies is bein readied for quick passage so norpia operations can be carried on nnt the big money bill becomes law. Action on the draft law exiensio measure by June 24 is a "must" i the present selective service ma chlnery is to keep running. Th draft law now on the book expire on that day. House's Draft Bill The House has passed a bill ex tending the draft for two years, bi banning actual" inductions withoi separate Congressional action. Tl Senate Armed Services commitk wants an unlimited three-year extension.

(AP) — Two primitive Brazilian tribes—re- ix>rted today bo have been contacted by white men for the first lime —stili jealously gunrd the "mHi- lary secrets" of a forgotten civilization. Dr. Knlervo Oberg of the Smithsonian institution told today of his visits to the Nambiguara and Terena tribes deep in the Amazon jungles f and said they are suspicious of white men and of neighbors wro have white contacts. "Curiously, one of their major worries is that their 'military secrets' will be revealed," Dr. Oberg said. ! ^ "When a stranger approaches, their bows and arrows are hidden." Oberg said the tribes have "considerable primitive culture." They believe man was created out of blocks of wood, and hold religious ceremonies regularly, attired principally iii feather headdresses, their bodies painted with "complicated red and black semi-geometric designs." At other times they go naked. They live in a relatively unexplored area in dense forests bordering the banks of rivers which form the headwaters of the Amazon. This, the Smithsonian ethnologist said, has enabled them, to remain almost completely cut off from civilization — making them "probably the world's supreme Isolationists. 1 ' Truman Prefers Peace to Position ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., June 12 (jp) —• President Truman snys he would "rather have lasting peace than be President."

(AP)—Only niout 25 of the 250 kinds of worms that infest domestic animals have been found in people, reports Dr. James R. Douglas of Ihe College of Agriculture here. Four of the 25 can be considered normal human parasites, he says. There are two reasons why so few animal parasites have moved In on the human race, he believes. The first is that man comes into contact with them Infrequently. Second, most of them have become so well adapted to animals, through long residence, that they are not capable of establishing themselves in man. The National Cotton Council estimates the boll weevil and other cotton pests did 8470,000,000 damage in the U. S. in 1949. The average elevation of Colorado is 6.800 feet.
