The soil bank was one feature of t the bill which Eisenhower vetoed | yesterday. But in a major rebuff to the [ White House, the Democratic-controlled Congress linked it with other major farm law changes which Eisenhower opposed.

Yesterday he gave the the bad provisions more than can-, hospital $10,000 for its building celed out the good." Democratic leaders who have defended the measure, as the best ar.d quickest way to get more money .into farmers' pockets have said they do not expect Congress to approve any substitute bill. There was no indication that this attitude had changed because of Eisenhower's revised reconimen- I son of Texas said yesterday: "Congress is not going to roll over and play dead at the crack of a ll'hip." Rep. Poage (D-Texl. a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee, said in an interview today that "the soil bank alone is out — it won't add one cent to the farmers' income." Poage professed to see a chance that the House would vote to override Eisenhower's veto "if the Republicans who voted with us last week will vote with us again, and if the De m o c r a t s all stick together." Little Hope Speaker of the House Rayburn (D-Tex) refused to make any pre. diction, however, and other Democratic leaders held out little hope they could override the veto. The House passed the bill 237-181 last week. If the same number of members voted, it would require 279 votes to override the veto. And there were signs that at least some of the 48 Republicans who voted for the bill would not vole to override the Republican President's veto. Several said they accepted Eisenhower's decision although they would have been happier if he had approved the bill. None of them endorsed publicly the assertion by OOP Nationa'l Chairman Leonard W. Hall that the veto will help Republican chances in the November elections for control of the White House and Congress. ' "The President was absolutely right in vetoing the farm bill and his decision will be sustained by the American people." Hall said. Hall's Democratic counterpart, Paul M. Butler, called the veto "a direct blow from the President himself." and he added In a statement: "Farmers not only have been tn- Linder, now owner and president of an oak flooring manufacturing firm, said his check was "in appreciation of the great amount of charity they do at St. Joseph and because they draw jio line between Catholic and non-Catholic patients."

Freak Storm Kills 1, Hurts 11 In Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (ft— A freak 86- mile-an-hour wind hit suburban Willow Grove without warning yesterday, causing one death, injuries to 11 persons and damage totaling $100,000. death and injuries resulted from Uie toppling of a 20-foot wall of cinder blocks at a construction , . a, local airport attendant saw an!

That was a refernce to Eisenhower's decision, announced In the veto message, to raise price supports on five basic crops from previously announced or prospective levels. Chairman Ellender (D-La) of the Senate Agriculture Committee said it seemed strange to raise the wheat support price "with wheat running out of our ears/* He said his committee might make "a little investigation to find out how the laws on our statute books can be manipulated." The Agriculture Department estimated that the effect of the changes Eisenhower announced would be to add about 600 million dollars to farm income this year, assuming average harvests. The Democratic-sponsored bill, the department said, would have upped price support payments by about 850 millions on top of that. With The Courts 0 CHANCERY Natidnal Burial Insurance Co., vs. C. S.

Meyrter wants to carry the 36 Democratic .delegate votes to Uis national convention with freedom to pick the strongest candidate. Kefauver challenges him on the theory that voters should get a chance to choose their candidate. On the preferential side 01 (lie Democratic ballot, Kefmiver is unopposed, as Is Eisenhower on the GOP side. Their respective vote totals will be viewed ns an indication of their New Jersey pop* ularity. Voters can't cross party lines. Stevenson is not entered. Face to Face Debate Meamvhile.the possibility of ft face-to-fsce debate between Stevenson and Kefauver was being: discussed again—with inconclusive results. In Southern Pines, N.C. where! he is visiting; his sister, Stevenson) told n news conference he would be willing to debate with Kefnuver on ilay 13 in California and on May 20 or 27 in Florida. In Santa Rosa, Calif., where he is .campaigning for that state's June 5 primary, Kefauver said he .too is ready to debate "any time our schedules cross." He marie the announcement before news of Stevenson's mention of specific dates reached him. Later kefauver's Florida man-1 ager said his candidate would not debate on the 20th or 27th because! "the people of Florida are church- j going people and Sunday is no time to hold a political debate."

"Will Help Party" "In my opinion the veto will help the Republican party," he said. He added he thinks Eisenhower's proposal for new soil bank legislation —which Congress may not pass- and for price support increases "will take care of the economic picture quite well" in the farm 1 areas. Dissents to the veto action ap. peared to be limited among the! Republicans to states in the Mid-! west tier which depend largely onj one crop.
