The committee put off for one day a hearing nn a rival bill by Rep. Taylor O'Hearn, Caddo Parish Republican, calling for the commission to be abolished. Committee action sent to the House floor Rep. Womack's bill to strike from the present law a clause requiring the seven- man commission to expire in 1966. Rep. John Schwegmann, Jefferson Parish supermarket operator who fought creation of the commission two years ago, charged, "This is one of the Unost vicious price fixing laws i affecting the people of Louisiana ... yet we boast about free enterprise and the competitive spirit." Schwegmann said the commission caused milk prices to climb 20 cents a gallon and he j warned another seven-cent rise ; was in the making, "and I'm warning the legislature again." Womack, Franklin Parish law maker and a House floor leader for Gov. John McKeithen, had called the hearing for both his bill and the O'Hearn proposal to wipe out the commission. But arguments on thn Womack bill to extend (he life of the com! mission look up tt,e morning. : The milk commission was formed "after a series of price | wars in Louisiana, particularly , in the New Orleans area," Womack said.

Bennett Johnson of Caddo Parish, was passed 79-23 in the House Tuesday night after some debate. "There's nothing for you to gain out of this bill except fees for lawyers," shouted Rep. Edward Lebreton, Orleans Parish insurance executive. "This is not a lawyer's bill, big people's bill or little people's bill," answered Johnson. ". . .it just provides that our liabilities are not deckled by some Dallas man, but can be put in Louisiana courts where it belongs." Rep. Salvador Anzelmo, Orleans Parish, pointed out thai the bill merely gives the insured an option of going to court or wibmitting to arbitration. The Johnson bill provides that auto liability insurance policies may include provisions for submission of claims to arbitration, at the option of the insured. The measure adds that submission to arbitration docs not deprive the insured of a right to sua (o recover any sums due him under terms of the policy.
