New St. Lawrence Seaway Measure To Be Considered WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 (5)-The House public works committee, which last August pigeonholed all bills then pending to authorize the St. Lawrence seaway and power project, resumes corK sideration of a new measure tomorrow. At that time, Chairman Buckley (D-N. y.) told a reporter, proponents of the long-disputed legislation will be allowed two hours to testify in its behalf. The newest bill, following swiftly in the wake of a White House conference between President Truman and Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent of Canada, was introduced by Rep. Blatnik (D-Minn.). Blatnik introduced his bill Monday--three days after St. Laurent told Mi-. Truman that the dominion is prepared to proceed on its own with construction of the big waterway over an all-Canadian route. In effect. he told Mr. Truman that Canada has tired of waiting nearly 30 years for the Congress to approve the project.
