WKDNESDAT, JANUARY 18, 19W BIA'THIiVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE THt NATION TODAY— Truman Program Faces Grim i Prospect of Slaughter With I Change in One Committee Rule WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, IJPt— Some of President Truman's pro| gram may get slaughtered without ever coming lo a vote. This Is because congressmen know more ways of killing a bill than i voUng It down or trying to talk it to death, I The House Rules committee >s< I giving a good example of that now. 1 First, a little history on that committee. 1 A great many bills are introduced in the Home every year. The House 1 doesn't have time to consider all .them. ort Which shall it choose? Long ago it set up a committee of its mem- 1 bers called the rules committee. This committee »-»s supposed lo set as a funnel through which hills would be let out on the floor for ] debate and vote. 1C the committee wanted to Vill I a bill by refusing to let it out, that Just about killed it. it took a petl- 1 tioa signed by a majority of the House members to jar loose a bill turned down by the rules committee Opposed 'by Fair Dealers For many years there were greal I uotnnlaints against, this kind o I power given to one little group o! I conimitlcemen. Along came the election of President Truman in 1948 with his Fai: D«al program and particularly tha part of it which promised new civi rights laws, mostly for the benefi | of negroes. Mr. -Truman's Democrats wo: control of the House, too. So whel (his Congress began its session r January, 1!M9. the Tiumanite.s look eel at the make-up of the rule com I mlttee. There were 12 members on II I eight Democrats and four Repubh I cans. But—four of those eight demo 1 crat.s were Southern - Democrats. If the four Southern Democrats I teamed vp with the four Republicans, that would put the Trumanite Democrat's of four in a small minority. And Any time the learn of Republicans I and Southern Democrats wanted to |le up some of gram and keep it the Truman from a vote, .nd of power away from the Rules ommittee. And the House estat>- ihed a new rule.-This was it:'' If the Rules Committee has sat n a bill for 21 days, it can be cal- ed up in the House anyway. Tht Rules Committee can't stop it: This Ives 435 members a chance, to dec- de whether they want to pass the ill. Committee May Win That's what happened in 1949. But now suddenly a majority of he Rules Committee — Southern Democrats teaming up with Repub- icans—want their old power'back. They voted the other day to ask he full House to vote this year on whether the Rules Committee can .ave back its old power to sit on bill-indefinitely. The Rules Committee nuy win, :i spite of President Truman's protest over the maneuver. This is one of the reasons: There's a bill in Congress to give veterans a bonus. This comes at a time when Congress is shouting economy. If that bill gets out on the floor for a vote—since this is the year when all 435 House members must stand for re-electioh and .face the voters on th?ir record—a majority of the House may vote for it through fear of antagonizing the veteran vote. So. If the Rules Committee could conveniently sit on that bill—provided the-House gave it back its old power to do so—this would save a lot of congressmen from the em- barassment of voting on > veteran's bonus. But— If the Rules Committee—where the Southern Democrats and Republicans outnumber the Truman- : ather of Eight Held in Killing Of Mistress CHICAGO, Jail. 18.

If potential heirs later find out that the husband i.s not (he father, .can they deny the child his inheritance on the grounds of illegitimacy? Suppose the donor resorts to blackmail. Or .suppose he claims that he unwittingly had been used in a medical experiment. Suppose the donor's wife objects to her husband be-ing the father>> of another woman's- baby? 'Does the'child have any right to claim the donor as his legal parent? Or could the mother subsequently sue the donor for the support of the child? To protect themselves, most doctors rsquire that all parties concerned, husbands and wives on both sides, sign statements agreeing to the procedure and freeing the doctor of all liability. New York City requires that such records be kept. But if the names are thus recorded, there is no guarantee of perpetual ecrecy.
