I'certainly anticipate them, but how they will be made I. can't-yet say." Sen. Taft (R-Ohlo) wanls lo keep the law that bears his name, but revamp it through a series of amendments. May Be Re-Written Strong feeling is reported to exist «mong some OOP lawmakers Tor completely rewriting basic labor- management legislation—and in so doing, bury for good the contro versial association of Taft-Hartley with the Republican party. Speculation has also been reported among some labor urnon offi cials on Ihe prospect of an entirely new law emerging from the House Labor Committee under McCoiiheli. As the committee's ranking minority member in the last Congress, McConnell safety bill worked out satisfactory to labor. operations and the government after getting all parties around table to compromise their differences. McConnell was reported to have I in mind the same sort" of an approach to working out a new labor- management relation:, act to take the place of Taft-Hartley McConnell, an investment banker and not » lawyer, has never disguised his belief that Taft Hartley is too legalistic and obscure to be understood readily: little-time to set the amount of their contributions.

N. Y. Wj— The niosl serious diplomatic rift between Britain and the U. S. in years continued) unabated today despite efforts by India and other countries to close the breach. . Day-long harmony moves were expected, but diplomats held little hope for them. ,,' The two great allies split far apart when the U. S. notified British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden that it -could not accept a British-backed Indian compromise plan for ending the Korean prisoner of war deadlock unless the proposals should be given a chance as they stand, but the U. S. wants ill details spelled out. India came up quickly with modifications but these apparently did not satisfy the U. S. The 21 powers which backed an original American resolution held an urgent closed meeting last night at which U. S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson detailed the American objections to Ihe Indian proposals. The 21 apparently failed to find a position which would please both Britain and the U. S. Feelings at the meeting were tense and afterwards press officers of the British and American delegations were-nol even polite to one another—highly unusual In diplomatic circles.
