WEDNESDAY, MAY M, 194S Priority for Draft Legislation Asked £*tn. Gurncy to Moki 'Appeal for Quicker Action by Senators By Warren DuH*e (ITniUd Prws Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, May 26 (UP)_ Sen, Chan Gurney, R.. g. D., said yesterday he may appeal to the Senate to give draft. legislation a higher priority if debate on other mils "dra? on and on." Gurney, who Is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, set no deadline. But he said he would try to get the Seimte to set sstde displaced persons legislation temporarily, arid take up the draft If debate runs beyond a "reasonable" time. The Senate Is already behind its timetable. It must finish work propriations and the long debate on displaced persons before the draft bill reaches the floor. That may not be until next week Gurney said he thought a committee move yesterday to eliminate compulsory service for 18- j-ear-olds from the draft bill re- the "major source 'of op- in the Senate. He would not comment, -however, on the possibility of a prolonged debate on efforts by Southerners to write a provision for "voluntary" racial segregation into the bill. Under the amendment knocking youths of that age still could volunteer for 12 months training and thus not be liatle for draft service later. A total of 161,000 youths of IB- each year could be accepted for the program. The bill also calls lor a 19- tliroiigh-25 two-year draft, much like a measure on which the House Kules Committee resumed hearings yesterday. House debate on the draft Is . tentatively set for next week.
