W)—An* uncertain Senate grappled today Kith the question of how It can best attend lo the needs of the nation's mull business. With four different proposals before them, the lawmakers debated the Usue (or three days last week without reaching > decision. They finally agreed to vote today <4 p.m. EST). In advance or the vote, Senator Maybank (D-SC) summed things up IhMFay: riVrerybody wants to help Ihc little businessman but we can't seem lo agree about how lo do It." Here were the choices facing the Senate: • , 1. A year-old proposal by Senators Holland (D-FIa) and Wherry (n-Neb), lo create a regular legis- lalive commillce on small business. 1 It appeared to have little chance [ of adoption. 2. A substitute by Holland that would add. five senators to the Senate Banking Committee whenever it handles small business matters. A banking subcommittee hended by Maybank now deals with these mailers. 3. A substitute by Wherry which would set up a "scleci committee on siirall business" of 13 senators. It would be a permanent group but xvcmld not have authority to wrile legislation. 4. A substitute by Senior Murray ID-Mont) to set up a "special committee on small business" for two years. It could Investigate and hold hearings but not write bills. Holland claimed tiie support or most Senate committee chairmen for his proposal to add membrrs of the finance, commerce and judiciary committees—us well as tvi-o other senators — lo the banking group when it acts on small business Issues. | Murray contended lhal Ihc Hoi-' laiirt plan "would create oonfu-1 Hollywood Mm Continued from Page i The loudest and longest, laugh In "Battleground" comes when George Murphy relays General McAuliff's famous answer to a Nazi officer w ho is demanding surrender. "The answer is nuts," says Murphy. "Docs that mean affirmative or negative?" asks the Nazi. "It's definitely negative, I'd say," replies Murphy. Courl-Marluled Biggest single laugh from ''The Good Humor Man" comes when Jack Carson's boss calls Jack in on the carpet and thunders: "You're a disgrace to the Good Humor Company. You're fired. Turn In your uniform and your bells." * + • Healthiest laughs in "South Sen Sinner" come during some dialog between Shelley Winters and MacDonald Carey at a cafe table. "Yonr friend is a lot easier to get along with than y ou are," says the flirtatious Shelley when Carey, fails to warm up to her. "Yeah," answers Carey, "he is. While you were singing he couldn't keep his eyes off your voice." A derelict pianist is playing nearby and Carev saj's: "I've got & hunch he once was a virtuoso." "What of it?" asks Shelley. "I was, too." • * • ^Twelve O'clock High" was never the 'boy, Harry, Jr., ia.~ "The car has H rear end rattle." said Hairy j,-. "i thought I could ride back there and find it." Thieves Must Have Banquet Scheduled PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 20-«>)— The Police Department was wondering today if the robbers' association is planning a banquet. Myer RabinowiU, operator of a wholesale meat processing company, reporled yesterday that thieves broke Into his plant and stole the following: Pour sides of beef weighing a lolal of 1.500 pounds. A l,2CO-nound cross cut of beef. A total of 881 ham and pork butts weighing about 2.000 pounds. Three hundred pounds of beef livers. One hundred eighty ixnnuls of beef tongues. Two boxes containing 143 dressed chickens. A ci'nlc of egss. Jcmocratlc Leader Lucas of Illinois also opposed It. commenting that it's hard enough now lo get 13-mcmber committees lo meet, without enlarging Ihem by five tcnators. Wherry told the Senate: "I have been all over the United States, talking lo small businessmen and I wish lo inform Ihc majority leader that they want a committee of their own, cither with legislative authority or without it." Maybank argued that what small business needs Is a committee that can send bills to the Senate for action instead of merely investigating lo gel complaints in Ihe public eye.
