WASHINGTON (AP) - Fatter pay checks for most federal workers were in prospect today after House passage of a pay raise bill thai, includes $7,500-a- ycar increases for members of Congress. By the surprisingly large margin of 2-13 to 157 Hie, House reversed its earlier defeat of a similar bill and cleared the way for Senate action on the $533- million package of pay boosts. 11 includes $7,500-a-year raises for judges, Cabinet officers and top federal executives, and increases ranging from 22.5 per cent at I he lop to I.R per cent. at flic bottom for 1.7 million government workers The average letter carrier would gel a 5.6 per cent boost of $325 a year and the average government typist and file clerk would get a $310 a year raise. The bill is expected to be one of (lie first called up in the Senate after it completes action on the civil rights bill, and no difficulties are foreseen in its passage. A number of considerations prompted the House to pass the pay bill this time after defeating one, 222 to 184, last March. The size of the proposed congressional raise was scaled down from $10,000 a year to $7,500 and it was made effective ncxl; January, instead of this year, making it easier for members fo vote for if. Of major importance in the view of the bill's backers, however, was the fact most state primary elections are now over. Last March the primaries were still to be faced and too many members felt it politically unwise to vote raises for themselves and then face the elector- ale. Strong support from President Johnson also helped put the bill! over this time, as did a powerful lobbying effort by the postal unions. An amendment designed to eliminate the pain of voting for its own pay raises in the future was adopted by the House Thursday. It was offered by Rep. Morris K. Udall, D-Arix., and would provide automatic increases for Congress whenever the top Civil Service grade gets a rise.

Long, D-La., has criticized Republican senators for failing to support the South's position on the civil rights bill. "It appears to me that they're talking conservatism and moderation out of one side of their j mouths and saying 'yes' to ex-1 Iremism out of (he other," he said Thursday. j Long said Southerners had expected more Republican votes in their fight Io prevent the Senate from voting cloture—the closing of debate. Of the 33 Senate Republicans, six voted with the Southerners against cloture. "It was because of the defection of four Republicans that | clolure was possible," he said. | Long expressed hope thai, I .Southern forces still may alter "this monstrous civil rights leg-' islation."

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Two administration House leaders asked and won approval of a bill to place rural electric cooperatives undet the Louisiana Public Service Commission. The bill, passer! 8248 after hot debate Thursday, was then sent to the Senate for final decision. Reps. Lanlz Womack, Franklin, and Robert Munson, Rapides. floor leaders for Gov. John McKeithen, teamed to win passage. Private power companies, already under jurisdiction of the three - man commission, had backed the legislation. Rep. Ford Stinson, Bossier, who opposed the bill, failed to get two amendments tacked on. He said the bill would mean death for the rural co-ops in Louisiana. One amendment, to let the commission have jurisdiction over the co-ops only in territory disputes with private power companies, was rejected 19-71. The other, calling for commission jurisdiction over co-ops only in rates matters involving in dustrial customers, failed 2-1-69. Womack argued opponents had failed in both a House committee meeting or 1 in floor debate to show how the co-ops would be hurt by the bill. Memorial Is Built To Honor Pioneer BARBOURVILLE. Ky.
