They recessed their first session last Oct. 20. Many of the issues they wrestled with last year confronted them again. Dominant ones are defense B pending, universal military training, economic controls, and foreign aid. Out of how they deal with them will come records to go before the voters in next fall's election of a president, vice - president, M5 house members and 33 Senators. Today's meeting was routine! real kick-off for the new session win come tomorrow when President Truman will deliver his State-Of-The-Union message to a Joint Senate-House meeting. This will lay down in at least broad terms what legislation Mr. Truman wants from the session— and lay the basis for scrapping between supporters of his program and Its critics. Aside from legislation, some other politically potent issues are shaping up. One is Mr. Truman's proposal to send an Ambassador to the Vatican. Just belore Congress recessed last October, the president proposed the name of Gen. Mark \V. Clark as ambassador and asked legislation to permit Clark to serve without giving up his military rank. Tills touched off a country-wide controversy: Congress quit without taking any action on the President's request. Mr. Truman has sairt he will renew it. During the recess, six new house members were named. Republicans picked up one vote in the process. Making the new line-up there stand this way: Democrats 231. Republicans 201, Independent one, and vacancies two. '• Senator Wherry of Nebraska, Republican floor leader, died during the recess. Meeting this morning. Republican Senators chose Senator Styles Bridges of New Hampshire to take over the, leader's post. Wherry's Nebraska seat was filled by appointment of Fred A. Seaton, also a Republican, by Nebraska's governor. Leaders are aiming to wind up this session by next July's political conventions, but many legislators expect that actually it will run until election time. UN Rephrases POW's Demand; Reds Reject It | Neither Side Alters View in Two-Hour Talk On Air Fields Issue MUNSAN, Korea (AP) _ The U. N. Command today rephrased its proposal for exchanging prisoners df war and the Reds promptly turned it down. Rear Adm. R. B, Libby. Allied truce negotiator, said the u.N. plsn was rewarded to "eliminate any ground for technical opposition" by Wie Communists. The Reds still objected. - A second truce subcommittee argued nearly two hours over whether the Herts should be allowed to rebuild air fields during an armistice. Neither side changed its view. Both committees scheduled new sessions for 11 a.m. Wednesday 9 p.m. Tuesday EST at Panmnnjom. Willie the committees wrangled, Vice Adm. C. Turner joy, chief Allied negotiator, conferred in Tokyo with Gen. Matthew B. Rldgway, supreme Allied commander. Joy said it was "merely a routine visit." In presenting the revised plan tor exchanging prisoners of war, .Rear Adrii.-c?. B, j<iV"<vor"£?" ''TrAI is in no sense a naw'"pix>i: ..sar''buo that it had been rephrastd' to cover objections raised by the Reds. Changes included: ; 1. A specific provision that the U.N. Command would release nil prisoners for voluntary repatriation after' the Reds returned all prisoners, former' South Koean soldiers, and displaced, or interned civilians who want to go home. 2. Elimination of a demand that tlie Reds reclnssify as prisoners of war former South Korean troops now in the Red army. 3. Red commanders would "solemnly agree" that all prisoners released by the U.N. who were not directly exchanged for Red prisoners would not fight again in the Korean War. The original plan called for these prisoners giving their parole not to fight against the Allies.. Tlie plan still contained these baste points to which the Reds -have objected: 1. The prisoner exchange would start on a man-for-man basis, followed by an exchange of one captured Hed soldier for one civil- Ian. 2. Repatriation of both soldiers and civilians on a voluntary basis. 3. Supervision of the exchange by the International Committee of the Red Cross. It's always that way in a gen oral election year, the halls of Congress being a favorite forum for political speeches. legislatively, if, probably won't produce much. Only a few "must" major bills are due for consideration. Topping them are UMT, economic controls, foreign aid and billions in new appropriations. Politically, it may be one of the hottest In decades. Supporters of Sen. Taft of Ohio, Gen. Dwight D. .Elsenhower and other Republican Presidential possibilities already were Jockeying for position, and Democrats were countering at every opportunity. * From President Truman's State-of-the-union message to- mormw. Democrats hope to obtain some clue as to whether Mr. Truman will .seek re-rlection and ii not, the issues on which the Democrats will be expected to base their campaign. Vishinsky Accused Of Slowing Parley PARIS WV-France's United Nations delegate, Jean chauvel. today accused Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky of causing a slowdown in the Korean armistice negotiations. The truce talks at Paiimunjom "weren't going so badly until the initiative was taken by the Soviet delegate here," Chauvel told the 60-nation U. N. political committee.
