Tuesday Harlem WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress reconvenes today to tackle a mountain of major legislation—much of it highly controversial—in the partisan atmosphere of a between-conventions session of a presidential campaign year. Sen. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., the Senate majority leader, opened a drive to clear the remainder of President Johnson's "must" program before the Democrats meet at Atlantic City Aug. 24. First on the Senate calendar was a bill to ease pay restrictions for federal civilian employment of part-lime workers and retired regular military officers, and a measure to increase the pay scales of almost all military personnel. The House planned only a routine session, putting off all legislative business until Tuesday. In the month ahead, the Senate faces hot debate on such legislation as the $3.5-billion foreign aid authorization bill, a $9G2.5-million antipoverty program and other proposals. Un- der the circumstances, Mansfield offered no guarantee that Congress could finish its work before the Democratic convention. But. appealing to colleagues in both parties to hold partisan in-fighting to a minimum, he said it can be done if members of both parties apply themselves with diligence "and leave the political take-off and campaign oratorial flights until later." If Congress does not finish its work by then, he said, "we will be here in September and on to December if necessary." President Johnson listed 30 must bills in a news conference June 23. Senate and House, showing unusual speed, already have sent eight of these to the White House. Both houses h::;ve passed four of the other bills and are expected to reach compromises on them sometime this week. These arc a $546-million military construction measure and a bill setting allocations for the federal aid to highway programs.

Hargroder, 22, I of Beaumont, Tex., Saturday. MANSURA, La. (AP) — Big names in Gov. John McKeithen's camp wheeled into action during the weekend on behalf of i the Eighth District congressional bid of former state Sen. Speedy 0. Long. The Jena contender battered at U.S. Rep. Gillis W. Long on j civil rights, packing the House: Rules Committee, and Congres- ' sional absenteeism. Speedy was an unsuccessful candidate for .state insurance commissioner on McKeithen's gubernatorial slate. Gillis, a distant relative of U.S. Sen. Russell B. Long, was third in the Democratic race for gov- ; ernor. Joining Speedy on his tour i here Sunday were state Sen. j Dudley J. LeBlanc, Abbeville, a I McKeithen supporter; Public !

McKeithen is known io 1 be backing the bid of Speedy Long, although he hasn't said i anything other than that he ! would vote for him if he were iin the Eighth District. U.S. Sen.

George C. Wallace's abandonment of an independent presidential effort invited Sen. Barry Goldwater today to pursue an all-the-way conservative drive against President Johnson. When Wallace announced Sunday he was giving up the effort to get his name on presidential ballots in 16 or more states, he removed a serious obstacle to Goldwater's chances of carrying several Southern states in the November battle with Johnson.
