As House leaders called up the big one-package housing measure, Rep. Talle (R-Iowa) said a "bad bill" would be sure to invite a veto. Both Talle and Republican leaders left no doubt they considered as a "bad bill" the measure sent to the House by the Democratic majority of the House Banking Committee. The House Veterans Affairs Committee also has opposed the bill's provision for a special veterans housing program under the Federal Housing Administration and the inclusion of some GI provisions which the veterans affairs group had rejected earlier. With backing of the Eisenhower administration, Talle was ready to offer as a substitute another measure omitting all veterans preference provisions. The admin- istratiwH, he said, will "go along with It" Public housing is not involving in the present bill. Rep. Rains (D-Ala.), author of the committee, bill, said it is "almost altogether a mortgage credit bill" to make homebuying easier and act as a spur to the lagging home construction industry.

NEW REGIME Cabinet Patching Sought in Italy ROME WT—President Giovanni Gronchi today began the search for a politician to patch together a new government from Italy's moderate center front. The center coalition's collapse forced Premier Antonio Segn?" to resign last night after 22 months in office. Seen as strong possibilities were two prominent lawyers, both members of Segni's Christian Democratic party. They are Adone Zoli, finance minister in the old government, and Guiao Gonei- la, minister without portfolio .under Segni. Another Christian Democrat premier appeared certain. Although short of a majority in the 590-member Chamber of Deputies, the par.ty_'s 262 seats are 119 more than the second-place Communists. Segni's teetering four - party coalition of Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, and anit-com- munist Socialists), Republicans and Liberals fell apart last night when Vice Premier Giuseppe Sar- agat and the three other Socialist ministers pulled out of the Cabinet. Italy's Western-aligned foreign policy was not an issue. The four parties had been bickering for months over domestic issues. The Republicans quit the Cabinet two months ago—saying they wanted a freer hand—but continued to vo*« \viti the government on major issues in Parliament. The Social Democrats, headed by Saragat, had been threatening to quit for some time so they could reunite with the bigger left- wing Socialist party and campaign under one banner in future elections. It seemed that Saragat general election soon. unlikely, however would press for * BY THE HUNDREDS Friendly, Courteous Votes Continue to Arrive Daily Votes for Paris' friendliest, most courteous employe awards are coming in daily by the hundreds.

The cost, he told the Senate Finance Committee, would be in interest charges on money the Treasury is required to borrow to make up for tax collections which are deferred under the writeoff program. Humphrey said the program served the nation's security in bringing quick expansion of key industries, but he declared the time has come to shut it off except for strictly defense items. The program permits a company to deduct from its income for lax purposes part or all of a new plant in five years. The normal period is 20 years <xr mare. The secretary did not seek to defend a grant of authority to the Idaho Power Co. recently tc write off 65 million dollars of lire cost of two dams in the Hells Canyon area of the Snake River between Idaho and Oregon. "I read about that for the first time in Hie papers," Humphrey said, adding that the "general policy" now being followed by the Eisenhower administration vould be against such a certificate.' He said that Gordon Gray, director of the Office of Defense Mobilization, which granted the authority, believed there were "special circumstances" which justified the Idaho Power tax ben- dent of tlie American mothers «*'*• Committee, Inc., at the opening Humphrey said that "in fairness of ihe group's annual Mother's j to Mr. Gray, I believe the corri- ermferencf.

Brazos Routing Homes as Flood Damage Mounts By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS More persons were forced from 'homes near the Texas Gulf Coast Tuesday by the flooding Brazos Riv».r, and official estimates of violent weather damage in the state mounted to 85 million do!-' lars. The debris-chok#d Brazos spread 13 miles wide in Brazoria County and routed scores of families on both sides of the stream between Angleton and West Columbia. Fifteen family groups were rescued from homes in the river bottoms. Backwater of the muddy river and its tributaries overflowed the Missouri Pacific Railroad track at Anchor and spilled onto Highway 28, and this breakthrough also posed, a threat at Angleton. Thousands of acres of farm land had been inundated, including parts of ttie state prison farms at Darlington and Clemens. Revising earlier estimates upward, Maj. Gen. Holmes Dager of the Federal Civil Defense office said Tuesday the preliminary figure on Texas losses from tornadoes and floods now stood at 85 million. He announced that total at Austin, his latest stop on a statewide aerial survey, and said the figure probably will be raised again. High water joined parallel Oyster Creek to create one stream several miles wide at one point in Brazoria County. Thousands of acres of farmland were under water. The greatest danger was to crops. Water covered 4,000 acres of cultivated land on the Darrington Prison Farm. Officials said they have abandoned hope of any harvest from the inundated land. Carr Sees Adjourning Of Legislature Soon Only 2 Major Jobs Remaining in House AUSTIN IB-Speaker Waggoner Carr said today final adjournment of the Legislature "should,be within a few days." He said that so far as the House is concerned, its calendar is in good shape and • only two major chores remain: Adoption of the geivsral spending bill and providing a pay raise for teachers. Indirectly he placed responsibility for winding up the session— now in its 120th day—on the Senate. ., Still dangling in the Senate are House approved measures which would finance teachers pay, and the water-saving flood-controlling program long earmarked as one of the session's major tasks. Carr praised House members for meeting the bribery charge crisis "without flinching, without hesitating" and with courage. "The House has pointed the way toward meeting our most pressing obligations without imposing any new taxes," Carr said. Today marked the end of the period suggested by the Constitution as the duration of a general session. Legislators' pay drops to zero tomorrow. Carr said that floor debate is scheduled to start soon on the two billion dollar spending bill. "Its final figures will determine how much money will remain for tire teachers," he said. "Affecting this balance will be Senate action on two revenue-raising measures, the school tuition bill and the one per cent diversion from the permanent school fund to the available school fand r totalling about 21 million dollars, already passed by the House." The House gave the conference the the Area Girl Scout Meet Set Here The spring council meeting of the Red River Valley Girl Scout Council will be held Thursday May 16, at 12 noon at Camp Gambill. Business of the meeting will consist of presenting the plan of work and budget for next year, voting on proposed revisions in the by-laws and brief reports on current activities throughout the council. All adult members of the council are invited to attend with reservations to be made through Neighborhood Chairmen by May 13. The committee in charge of plans for the meeting is composed of Mrs. P. A. Reitz, Pittsburg, chairman: Mrs. Clovis Hootcn, Cooper: and Mrs. Grady Prim, Sulphur Springs. In charge of arrangements for the meal are Mrs. Joe Szcklcy, Mrs. Frank Shaeffer, Mrs. H. B. Helton and Mrs. Vic Simonctti, Paris. The Board of Directors will hold its regular bi-monthly meeting preceding the council meeting and tours of the campsite will be conducted for those who wish to sec the camp. OPFNS WEDNESDAY PJC Will Host Sports Meet Paris has been awarded 1958 spring sports meet for Texas Junior College Athletic Conference. The announcement was made Tuesday morning by Athletic Director Dewitt Alexander of Paris i JC. ! The spring meet will bring some 300 to 400 people from 22 junior colleges in the Texas Conference to Paris next spring for track, field, tennis and golf competition. The meeUor 1957 was to end Tues- Frjday njghls at Paris , ]unior College auditorium are selling at a committee working on final rev/rite of the spending bill two more possible headaches, which could bring a delay in its report. This came in the midst of increasing demands for quick adjournment. Rep. Harold Parish of Taft said he might introduce today a final adjournment—sine die—resolution which would call for the end of legislation either May 18 or 22. After lunch yesterday with Speaker Waggoner Carr, Parish said the new dates "had been suggested." Earlier yesterday Parish displayed a resolution to end the session May 15. The possible headaches to the Appropriations Committee came when the House disregarded the Texas Commission on Higher Education and passed two bills making Tarleton State College and Midwestern University state-supported senior institutions.

Joseph R. McCarthy. The Rev. Adam Grill, pastor of St. Mary's Roman C a t h o lie church, made the statement in a sermon prepared for delivery at the third and final funeral service for the Wisconsin Republican who died last Thursday of a iiver ailment. McCarthy's body was flown to Wisconsin yesterday after church services in Washington and a funeral service in the United States Senate. "Before us we see the flag- draped casket of the senator. May Almighty God be good to him," Father Grill said. "If our God would allow him to use his lifeless arms, Sen. McCarthy would point out to all of us two objects in this church as an expression of his whole life. He would first point to the altar and secondly to the flsg which drapes his casket. "Why would he do this? Because they contain the epitome of his life. Sen. McCarthy was a dedicated man. When he took upon himself a task, he gave his whole heart and soul to a successful completion of this work. He loved his God, and his country." The funeral was held after thousands of McCarthy's friends who know him not only »e * turbulent senator, but as a friendly neighbor, had filed past his casket to pay their final respects.
