TUESDAY, KAY 20, 1052 Social Security Issue Enters Campaign After House Rejection of Bill By FBANCB J, KELLY WASHINGTON <*>—A ne*' <aun- paign Issue popped up today as tb« result of House rejection of a bill to rats* social security bene- fn» MO million dollars a year. Some Republican members contorted that one section of the t measure would have opened the way for "socialized medicine." But Democratic leaders expect resentment on the part of present and future beneficiaries of the old age and survivors Insurance program, who were denied increases of about »5 a month. This resent. ' • "::-,?v to be expressed at th« poll* next November. About '*,_• i.,....^ii persons now are getting monthly checks. The Democrats voted 98 to 41 for the bill, the Republicans 99 to 51 against it. One independent con- ii'essuian also supported it. The measure actually got a majority of 150 to 140, but under the parliamentary situation yesterday it wouid have had to receive a two- thirds vote to pass. No amendments could be offered and debate wns limited to 40 minutes. The bill was sponsored by Chairman Dougiiton (D-NC) of the Ways and Means Committee. IU path through the House looked smooth until members of the American Medical Association began wiring and telephoning lawmakers that the bill contained "socialized medicine" features. Those complaints were directed specifically against a secllon designed to preserve the old age and survivors insurance rights of persons suffering tolal «;id permanent disability. Rep. Daniel A. Reed <R-NY) and some other Republican lawmakers agreed with the AMA that the section \vould give far too broad powers to Oscar Swing-, Ihe federal security administrator. They objected that he could lay down the rules for examining persons who claimed total and permanent disability, designate the physicians or agencies that would examine the applicants, and deny certification to applicants who refused to accept services offered under the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. Hep. Kean (R-NJ), backing the bill, scoffed that opponents were "seeing burglars under the bed." He declared the bill had no socialized medicine features. ^ ROCKET PRACTICE—North American F-88 Sabr.

Moscow Now Tells Better Fish Story LONDON (IP) — Moscow radio sounded ii few loud snecn today at the achievements of capitalist 1 fishermen. In Russia, a broadcast •aid, everybody fishes better. The big fish story was set off by the return of a Soviet whaling flotilla after seven months In the antarctic. The Russian fishermen, the broadcast said, had accounted for "great achievements." "Vasily Tuplkov, for example, killed 372 whales. A hero of Socialist labor, Afaruy Purgfn, killed 333 and Oeorry ofiyannikor, 319," Moscow boast«d, adding: "The Norwegian harpooner, Marlus Jakobsen. of JO years standing and the best harpooner in the capitalist countries, has during one season killed only 151 whalei. "His record," Moscow calmly added, "was beaten by all Soviet harpooners." Wo/nut Acreage Drop* In California Area SANTA ANA, California. «>)—Walnuts, once one of Orange County's chief crops, are fast disappearing from the agricultural scene. The county produced almost 18 million pounds of walnuts from 17,150 acres in 1923. This year, only 510 pounds were harvested from the slightly more than 1,000 acres which are left. Two main reasons for the decline, says Agriculture Commissioner D. w. Tubbs, are the coddling moth and the husk fly. The The moth enters the shell and attacks the nut meat, and the husk fly stains the shells, thus lowering the nut's market value. The walnut acreage has moved farther north In the state. Because it contains million* of acr« of rich land now unused because of water, the Florida everglades have been called America's last frontier. ORDINANCE NO.
