' yRlDAY, JANUARY 3, 19-1R Congress Splits Over Social Bills Republicans Willing To Go At Least Part Way With Truman By Raymond Lahr (United Press Staff Corrntpondrnt) ^WASHINGTON. Jan. 9. (UP) — ]Bt^ fiepuullcaji-controlled Con- »«ss Wa5 rearty today to go part or the way with President Truman on fils requests lor social legislation bu the Republicans themselves were divided over .some of them. There was a fairly high degree or unanimity among Republicans on one of Mr Truman's proposals— his request for a national health insurance program. They saw no cliance /or its approval. In his annual message to Con- grejs. the president recommended: 1. That benefits be Increased and coverage be -broadened under social security la»- provisions dealing . with unemployment compensation and old age and survivors Insurance. 2. That a program of national health Insurance be enacted. 3. That the federal government provide [in.incial aid for education. 4. That the wage-hour Ian Ije amended to increase the present minimum of. 40 cents an hour to 15 cents. Firm decisions on all or (he proposals awaited agreement between House and Senate Republican leaders on their legislative program for this year. The recommendation with the chance of approval was that for an Increased minimum wage but not on so liberal a basis as Mr. Truman proposed. Sen. Joseph H. Ball. R.. Minn., chairman of a Senate Labor Subcommittee considering clianges in the wage-hour law. said he was thinking in terms of a 50-cent minimum Many Republicans favor an i.^mjtase to fifl to 65 cents. " Tart Has No Comment Chairman Robert A. Tuft. R., O., of the Senate Republican Policy Committee withheld comment on Mr. Truman's specific recommendations, but he favors Increasing the minimum wage and federal aid to states for education and health. Taft and most other Republicans nre bitterly opposed to the administration's health insurance plan on grounds that It would "socialize" the medical profession. A bill authorizing federal aid lor education has been approved by Taft's labor committee and a Taft- sponsored health bill is expected to win approval. Ball said he believed the Senate would approve the health and education bills but that he did not- know whether the House would go along. It appeared likely tliat Senate leaders might try to sell those two measures to House leaders, who have seemed cool toward them thus far. House Labor Committee members indicated that the education bill would not be approved without leadership pressure. Sen. James E Murray, D.. Mont., sponsor of health insurance tegisla- 4jpn, said Mr. Truman's health pro- K'Sal showed that the president had accepted Taft's "challenge" to make health insurance a political issue. H e criticized Tail's o«'n bill as a plan ror "charity medical care." Under the administration plan, medical care would be financed rrom payroll taxes. Taft's program would be rinanced from state and federal treasuries. The Senate Finance Committee has an advisory council studying social security benefits and coverage, but Senate and House spokesmen were uncertain whether legislation on those questions would be considered this year.
