Bonus, Rent Control Legislation Filed In General Assembly " Hartford, Jan. 14 —(UP)— The General Assembly is back in session today, for its first full work day since it was organized last Wednesday. T:-.e avalanche of bills — estimated to re.ich 2,100 during the next few weeks—has started. Foremost are several administration-sponsored proposals, calling for payment of a veterans' bonus, a state rent control act, and an emergency rental housing program for ex-sorviccmon. The bonus bill—which may cost the state $50,000,000 when, and if, pn;-:scd—sets up a payment scale ranging from one to three him-1 drcd dollars. depending upon, lenglu of service. However, there : is no provision for financing the bonus. I This ancle. snys Republican i House Leader George C. Conway, depends upon solution of the state's .over-all financial program. The stale rent control act sets up a commission to carry on when the federal controls are lifted, li ! would allow increases up to 10 per I cent for proven good reasons, bu: the controls would not apply to , j new homes. | And the emergency housing bili | —-bencfltting only veterans—asks i L-liat the state pay the local taxes for five years on all new homes ; rented by servicemen, with tho un- 1 derstandinpr that the rents would I be reduced so that the veterans j would obtain tho full support of i the savings. Judge-ships The minor court judgesliips, usually a highly controversial pro- pi<am, may slide through -'his scs- j sion with n minimum of debate. | Most of tho judgeships are hold by 1 Republicans. Those serving interim appointments until Febru.iry 12 may, it is understood, bo con- i tinued in ofllce until t'he first of I July when the new full two-year 1 terms begin.

Four Objectives Outlined; Government Seeks No Interference With ized Rights Of Labor Washington, Jan. 14—(UP)—Attorney General Tom Glark has told the Supreme Court that the United Mine Workers and John L. Lewis "do not yet seem to neal- • ze " that their recent coal strike "fell little short of causinR n national disaster." Clark took, personal command ot the government's maltlc against Lewis and the United. Mine Workers in connection with last November's 17-day coal strike. He delivered the opening Rovorn- mcnt arguments before the high court, which will decide whether Lewis and the UMW were correctly -tincd three and one-half million dollars ;or refusing to ohry a court order to call otr the strike. The government, Clark said, ••does not ask this court to establish any principle wnich would imcrfcro with the recognized rights of labor." Clurk said the government has four objectives in it-f court battle. First, to uphold its right and authority to operate facilities seized lor war purposes under .-i temporary law. Second, to vindicate the power of the federal courts to issue temporary reslrainiriR orders to prevent 'irreparable injury to^ the people of the. nation. Third to prohibit Interference with the sovereign functions of the United .States. Fourth, to protect the jurisdiction of the courts to decide questions of law and. fact pending final judicial examination. Before the day is over, laJ)or nni-m- probibly will have a pretty good idea of where they will stand legally 0:1 several important issues. The Supreme Court — the Con- -vi-oss—and the secretary of labor himself—nil arc expected to hive n. say in the matter. The highest court in the land has tackled the government's casn a-'iinst John L, Lewis and his United Mino Workers, to decide whether they wore correctly held in contempt for carrying out the November COH! strike. The p^inl of law involved hero is highly significant for all unions — but especially for the miners, because of the heavy fine levied against them. Kent on making the lines stick, the •jovornment IM.S assigned its No. 3 Hwycr. Attorney General Tom Clark, to nrguc its case. Labor Secretary Sc!iwcilcnl«cli has called a news conference in his ofllee for 3:30 this afternoon. But *o far there's no hint as to wJ>»i. The lobor chief will tell the rc- porters. But ovon before that -session. ] Michigan Republican Clare Hoff- Otto ! mal1 will face his House colleagues to discuss portal-to-portal suits and other labor bills.
