PAQVTW&J41I BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST IS, 1954 2 Veteran Senators Claim 83rd Congress Has Done Great Deal WASHINGTON (AP) — Two veteran legislators, Republican Sen. Millikin of Colorado and Sen. Mansfield of Montana, a Democrat, said today there is no doubt about it — the 83rd Congress has been anything but "do-nothing." Millikin, chairman of the GOP conference, said in an interview: •"There's no question about it, we've put through an amazing amount of legislation. And don't think the people won't be aware of it when they start comparing the campaign promises of Gen. Eisen- hower with the performance of this Republican Congress." Mansfield, questioned separately, said: "No, this certainly has been no do-nothing Congress." But much of the work accomplished, he said, has ''not been in the interests of the people.'' Speed Shown Millikin and Mansfield spoke out after both houses of Congress, with an eye to going home by the end of the week, put on another demonstration yesterday of how they can speed through legislation when they want to. The House lost little time on a compromise farm bill, sending it 10 the Senate 208—47 despite some last-ditch cries that it would do the farmer no good.

Obituary , by voice vote in the House, was the compromise atomic energy bill he asked to allow private industry into the atomic energy field and to permit a limited exchange of nuclear information with America's allies. The compromise included a provision for compulsory sharing of private atomic patents for five years that the Senate had insisted on. Administration wishes fared worse when first the Senate, then the House, decided in favor of a bill which would impose heavy fines and imprisonment on members of the Communist party. The administration had prevailed on the House Monday to pass a milder anti-Communist party version of the bill, but the Sena'te kicked yesterday decided 41—39 in favor of the fines—and— imprisonment provision which it had approved once before. The House then overrode its leadership by appointing conferees with the Senate, 208—100, with instructions to agree to the Senate version— but not closing the door to further revision Meanwhile the two houses passed secondary legislation at a mile—a— minute clip." FARM Continued from Page 1 majority in Congress this year. The compromise measure allows siiding-scale supports of 82^2 to 90 per cent of parity (government- Get "fair" price) on cotton, wheat, corn, rice and peanuts for next year's crops . -The bill as passed also retains authority of secretary of Agriculture Benson to hold supports for butter, cheese, milk and dairy products at the reduced level of 75 per cent of parity. Also approved with little dispute was the administration proposal to set aside 2 ! /i billion dollars worth of farm surpluses for foreign or domestic relief, barter and other outlets.

The combination measure then shot back to the House on a vote of 81-1. The House handed the administration its second setback of the day by approving the latest Senate version 208-100. It did so by adopting a motion of Rep. Dies (D-Tex), instructing House members of a conference committee to accept the Senate amendments. House Republican Leader Hal- leek of Indiana later told newsmen, however, that the instruction was not binding and he felt there still was a chance to cut out the provision making Communist party membership a crime. While the outlawing bill was snagged in controversy, the Senate passed another measure yesterday to permit the government to bar suspected subversives from defense plants. It also voted to deny pensions to federal officials, including present and former members of Con- giess, who are convicted of ''misuse" of office. It placed this elaboration on a House bill designed originally to deprive Alger Hiss of retirement benefits. Hiss is the former State Department staff member now serving a prison term for falsely denying he gave government secrets to a Communist spy ring.

(#—Representatives of 170 million Christians today renewed their efforts to carry out Jesus Christ's prayer "that they may all be one." Hopes for a closer union of Christ's followers were expressed before leaders of 163 denominations from 48 countries at the meeting of the World Council of Churches. Keynote speeches on unity were made last night by clergymen of four different denominations from four different countries. They laid the groundwork for later discussions. Bishop Anders Nygren of the Church of Sweden recalled Christ's prayer not long before his crucifixion. The bishop said: "Jesus prayed 'that they may all be one.' "One must now take that prayer seriously, that Jesus shall not have prayed in vain." He also stated: "If we were not one in Christ we would not be assembled here. And if we were not disunited we would not be here either, for this ^conference is meant to be a step en the way toward overcoming this disunity." Canon 0. S. Tomkins of the Church of England mentioned differences over such things as a definition of unity, but said: "It may be that, by every standard of human achievement, the unity of the church is an impossible task and to think of 't is an idle dream. But we are not limited to human achievements. Christ has made us his own—and he is not divided." The Rev. Georges Florovsky, New York City, of the Russian Orthodox Catholic Church said: "The very sting of Christian tragedy ;s in the fact that, in the New Atomic Power Bill Goes to Ike WASHINGTON (IP) — President Eisenhower today got a bill carrying out his sweeping new program to open the way for a private atomic power industry and to bolster European defenses with more data on nuclear weapons. The House put Congress' final approval on the long-debated measure by voice vote yesterday. The Senate had accepted the compromise version Monday. But Chairman Cole (R-NY) of the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee served notice he intends renewing a fight next January over disputed patent provisions which prompted much of the Senate's bitter 13-day debate on the original bill. The measure sent to the White House requires the sharing of all civilian patents for five years on a free basis. After that, owners of developments not made under government auspices can get exclusive patent rights for 17 years, renewable for the same period. This was a compromise between the House position calling for exclusive patients at the outset and the original Senate demand for 10 years of compulsory patent-sharing.

Devadutt, president of the Baptist Union of India, made this comment: "A church that lives out of communion with another church is taking upon itself a dreadful responsibility for it is saying in effect to its sister church: 'You are not founded on Christ.'
