WASHINGTON, June 2. «P) — Emerging triumphantly from the Senate with a 62 to 14 vote of approval, a giant relief and deficiency appropriation bill sped today into a conference In which Senators will try to straighten out differences with the HOUP°. So fast did the Senate amend and expand the bill last night, that clerks could not immediately compute the exact total of funds it carries. But the sum was figiired roughly at more than $2,428,000,000, of which the biggest item is a $1,425,000,000 grant to President Roosevelt to carry on WPA and other relief activities next fiscal year. Fighting without hope of success but for purposes "of the record," Senator Vandenberg (R.., Mich.) sought to dismantle WPA and return the administration of relief to the states, with the federal government bearing 75 per cent of the cost. His amendment was snowed under, 57 to 14. On this issue Vandeberg found himself opposed by Senator Borah of Idaho, another man prominent in the republican presidential picture, and as the debate continued, the name of Governor Alf M. Landon was mentioned in chiding tones from the democratic side. Vandenberg argued that if the job of administration were given to the states "waste and political exploitation" would be avoided. Borah disagreed on the wisdom of such a move. He said Harry L. Hopkins, WPA administrator, was right and that it was "not in the interest of economy for one sovereignty to contribute the money and another to administer it." Senator Schwellenbach (D., Wash.) broke into say that since the Senate was hearing from some "republican candidates," it should be advised of views expressed in the past by Governor Landon of Kansas. He read from a number of utterances he attributed to Landon, including a statement that "the President and WPA are doing all in their power to get the people work." Secretary Ickes' PWA is permitted to use $300,000,000 for grants to local agencies to carry on public works, grants not to exceed 45 per cent of construction costs. The President is permitted to continue the giant Florida ship canal if engineering boards of review approve. An amendment offered by Senator Hayden (D., Ariz.) and approved by the Senate yesterday added $57,000,000 to the bill for western reclamation projects.
