(/i 1 ) — Advocates of a new method of elcct- groped today for , to rescue the Lodgc-Gosselt bill from a pigeon-hole In the House Uules Committee. They planned to take their time, In the belief they will win if they wait long enough. Even as President Tinman told his news conference yesterday that Chairman Sabath <D-II1) had advised him he would try to give the House a chance to vote on the controversial proposal, the rules committee shelved It by a vote "of 7 to 4 -Named for its sponsors, Senalo Lodge (R-Mass) and Rep. Cosset <D-Tcx). the legislation would sub mil to the elates a proposed Con stitutioiial amendment. If ratified the change would split up the elec toral vote of each slate In propor tion to the popular vote case fo President and vice-president. Th ei.tlre electoral vote of each slat now is cast, for the mandidate receiving the most votes. The loser gels nothing. Bill Passe a Senate The hill passed the Senate Feb. 1 by a vote of G4 to 27. Even if it received the two-thirds House vote needed, it would have to be ratified by 3G state legislatures before becoming effective. Three southern Democrats and one Republican supported the mca- si're in the rules committee, while four northern Democrats and three Republicans blocked it. •Oiling to clear it for a House shlWown were Representative. Co5^ol Georgia. Smith of Virginia and Lyle of Texas, Democrats, and Herler of Massachusetts, Republi can. Against approval were Sahath o Illinois, Madden of Indiana, Me Sweeney of Ohio and Dclaney o New York. Democrats: and Allen o Illinois. Brown of Ohio and Wadsworth of New York, Republicans. Sabath told newsmen he had advised the President that he was opposed to Ihe legislation. He said •he did not recall having told Mr. Truman that he would allow the bill to be voted on by the House, and assumed that ., the President had misunderstood him. Proposal Called Bad '•It's a bad proposal," Sabath said "It would give Mississippi more House Group Seeks Roll-Call Vote on All Expenditures Bills By William F. Arbojast + WASHINGTON, March 10. (AP) —Defeat of a bill for federal aid to talc library systems figured today n a drive to require roll call votes n Ihe House on all money bills. The library bill, carrying a price age of $36,400,000, was beaten yesterday by a roll call vote of 164 to 161. Just 24 hours earlier, a postal em- ployes pay raise bill estimated to cost $103,000,000 parsed the house bj a thumping standing vote on which the members did not have to be recorded by name. The conclusion drawn by veterm House observers: In an election year Congressmen don't want to go or record in favor of-additional federa spending. Bill Introduced A bill to require a record vote, on all bills involving general pu*" oullays has been introduced by Rep Dwight L. Rogers (D-Fla). wli said he believes "we should be will ing to stand up and be counted o the*e proposals." Rep. Taber (R-NY) joined Roger today in pressing for action on th "stand up and be counted" pro posa). Rogers said he has asked the nil committee to give early considera tion to the bill and believes his r Plane Hits Cable But Lands Safely SALT LAKE CITY. March. 10. ffl —A four-engine Navy plane, with Uudcr-Sccrctary of the Navy Dun Kimball and 11 others aboard, snap- perl a power cable while approach- Ing the Salt Lnke City airport early today but landed safely.

His reasoning: all of Mississippi' elector,!.' v-jtes might be expected to go to one candidate, whereas in close northern races a candidate might pick up a net of only one electoral vote In each state. |&fj3'way, Sabath added, "Defeat of th^?*proposaV'wiir'add to friction In the Republican Party and I'm In favor of that." He meant, he explained, that "many Republicans who are for Senator Taft for President don't like this bill because it carries the name o( Senator Lodge, who might challenge Taft for the nomination." Many northern Democrats are against It because they fear It may give southern Democrats a dominant voice in party councils. Rep. Gossett said he was hopeful that the rules committee may change its mind. Any oE the seven members who voted against the bill may move to reconsider at any time. . If they don't, he pointed out, the bill could he called up undcr'sus- pension of the rules or under the 21-day rule allowing bottled-up measures to be voled on regardless of the rules committee's position. "There is no rush," Gossett snid. "The Senate lias passed this' bill already and we can wait until the last day of the session for House action If necessary." ' quest will be heeded. Taber. who heads a Republican "price tag" committee set up to estimate the cost of legislative proposals, told newsmen he believes "an effective economy drive can be launched" if the rules are changed and the members are required to vote "on the record" on spending bills. "We've got to cut wherever we can." said .Stefan, a member of the executive central committee of the House Appropriations Committee. 'Otherwise, with all this spending, we'll be so close to ruin, we may collapse." Roll-Call on Money Bills House rules require a roll-call vote on money bUls only when one- fifth of the members present demand it. In the cnse of the postal pay raise bill, only 24 members insisted on roll-call. That wasn't enough.
