The proposal ha? .met strong opposition. It is tentatively scheduled for action in the Senate this •week. . • •' ' Senate and House Democratic leaders, fearful of defeat, 'were thinking of backing a compromise plan to provide more than the $600 million Kennedy proposed for immediate public works, and little of any of the standby authority. One compromise -plan reportecl under consideration would authorize an immediate..$750 million public works program. The attempt to negotiate a compromise has spurred by the threat that Senate foes might be able to force it to the Senate Banking Committee. ' Other congressional news:.

Indiana Court Rules On Case Of Vacant lots •INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The owners of two vacant lots where a Michigan City boy was injured in an explosion cannot be held liable, according to an Indiana Supreme Court ruling issued Monday.

Pier lost the suit in the lower court and then in an Appellate Court appeal. The ruling oame on « petition to transfer from the Appellate Court.

WASHINGTON <€W) - Total food supplies will continue large in 1982, but there will be variations in the amount of different types of food as compared to 1961, according to the Agriculture Department. A department study showed that prospective gains in meat supplies will be small and current indications point to less poultry, both chicken and turkey. .Production of milk is expected to be larger in 1962 and little change is expected for eggs. Somewhat smaller supplies of 'resh vegetables and potatoes are in prospect, but supplies of fat: and oils, cereals, and most other foods will continue plentiful. On balance, ' the department said, retail food prices in 1962 may average only slightly higher than in 1961. Although food consumption will increase about in line with population growth in 1962, the pattern of change/among individual foods will vary rathe r widely. • The supply of red meat in the second quarter of 1062 probably will average about 3 per cent below the first quarter and slightly below year-earlier levels. For the year as a whole,, meat consumption per capita will be close o the 1961 rate of 161 pounds per capita. Meat will be slightly iighe r in price through the spring and early summer than in the irst part of 1962. ,In the second lalf, beef is expected to be in arger supply and, prices should )e lower than in the first quarter; i'ork prices are not expected to change much for .the next couple of- months, but may -drop in the .ate summer and fall. Broiler production' will increase in the second quarter, but not as much as in 1961. Retail prices are not expected to drop as sharp- y in coming months a ; s they did a year earlier. Egg production in the first three months was limited by severe weather. Output in April- May-June will increase more than seasonally, with retail, prices below the same quarter of 1961. Egg consumption for the -year will be close to" the 1961 total. : Total consumption of dairy products is expected to rise above 1961, but the rise will be'slightly less than the, rise in population. The indicated slight decline in per capita consumption wouldv come from a drop in fluid milk and 'cream. Retail prices, of dairy products may average slightly below last year.
