There he will re- board his special train for the trip to Hutte. The criticism stemmed from Mr. appearance at Butte . a cut of ODT J340.000, a cut of SlOSOOfr •War Assets $50,000,000 a cut of $55 912,000; and Housing Expediter $15,172,000, a cut Of $5,327,900. Although the reduction in veterans funds was the largest-doliar- wise, It averaged only a little over six per cent. The other cuts ranged from 8.75 per cent tar the Atomic Energy Commission to more than SO per cent for the Housing F\-- pcditcr. Cuts Vets' Training In another action, the committee ordered so-called veterans "leisure time" training courses discontinued. It pointed out there had been considerable criticism that veterans were learning to dance, fly and even tend bar at federal expense. Liltcnthal's statement on the danger o; budget, cuts was prompted by efforts of Republican commit*| v ee members to get a breakdown on ~vhat atomic projects could be safely discarded in the Interest of economy. He said Atomic energy still is so Permit racial segregation new that no one knows what, avenue of research will lead to njw development which will change the nation's entire military and civilian future. "Cutting out. one section of research and development might prove to be a. very tragic and catastrophic mistake." he said. The committee said it is "fully aware" of the importance of the commission's work. But it said there was a feeling It is using its strategic role to "avoid facing the practical realities" where its less important work is concerned. "The Impression .left with the committee," it said, "is one of general extravagance." the proposed selective service law. Democrats Surprised Republican support for the anti- poll tax amendment caught the Democrats by surprise. Senate Democratic Whip Scott W. Lucas of Illinois charged the move was a political maneuver. He snid the Republicans were trying to "tell the American people they did puss an> anti-poll tax bill for the soldiers if not for everybody." On the vote, 34 Republicans an three Democrats supported the amendment. Five Republicans and 30 Democrats opposed it. Southern Democratic Senators made a token fight to block it, although there was nothing resembling .a filibuster. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D., Gn.. told reporters the Southerners con-'! sidered the amendment; unconstit- i utioiinl but said they would not try to block the bill because of it.
