The suspccl is one Congress to adjourn SST case unsettled By .TIM LUTIIKIt WASHINGTON (AP) - The longest-running Congress in 30 years creaked today toward an afternoon adjournment, apparently guaranteeing a lengthy dispute over the supersonic transport plane will be replayed when Ihe new session convenes. Only two items stood in the way of adjournment. One was funding of the Transportation Department thnnu'h March :i(l —including money for the SST. The other: the adjournment resolulion. Both items cleared I ho House Thursday. And Senate aclion on both apparently was assured when Sen. William Pro\mire, D- Wis., chief opponent of Hie SST, reportedly agreed lo allow the government to subsidize Ihe high-speed plane for another three months. '"ilhoul. thai agreement, I' • was little chance Ihe S i; would approve the iiilerim money measure for the Transportation Department before Ihe Olst Congress is required to call il quits by noon Sunday. But Proxmire, by agreeing to drop his filibuster against, the SST, reportedly won an agreement for a separate vote on Ihe aircraft in March. The $200 million requested for development of Ihe 1,800- mile-an-lionr plane is included in Hie $2.(i - billion trans- portation money bill. The Scnale voted earlier to eliminate Ihe SST appropriation, the House voted to keep il and a conference committee settled on $210 million. The same bill carries money for the Federal Aviation Administration, the Coast (iuard, the highway program and a host of other transportation p r o j e c I s . Because of parliamentary procedures, the Senate would liave had to kill the entire transportation bill to gel rid of I he SST. President Nixon, in signing Friday a resolution convening (he new Congress Jan. 21, cautioned (hat if Ihe Senate failed to approve Ihe interim 29 states to seat transportation appropriation— with the SST money—he would have no alternative tint to call a special session before thai date. Before lengthy sessions earlier in the week, the SST was bill one of several roadblocks lo adjournment. Bui one by one the House and Senate c h i p p e d away at the backlog—approving s o m e major proposals and shelving others—until nothing else, remained. A major casualty was a bill raising benefits for 2(> million Social Security recipients. The House approved a package based on a !> per (cut increase in benefits; the Senate voted for a 10 per cent hike TIMBKKLINK LO !> C, F, . Ore. (AP) — T'vo men trapped on Ml. Hood by vicious storms burrowed deep inlfi the snow to survive five ni^hlv. For 87 hours. Ihey huddled in a snow cave in a single sleeping b;m under suhrero temperatures and winds up to 8(1 miles an hour at the 10,000- fool level. Dr. Latham Flanagan, a 34- year-old surgeon, and Dale Moon. :(2. a Park Department survival specialist, both of Fimene, were spoiled Friday near where Ihey spent the fiflh night and about half a mile from Timberline Lodge, where Ihey stalled a climb lo Hie ll.LM.'i-foot peak Sunday. The two mountain veterans were jo v(> " first aid at Ihe lo(k:e and sent lo a Portland hnspilal. where they were listed in uood condition. They were chapped and smiled Ihnmgh cracked lips as they arrived. ''You shiver a lot," Flanagan quipped when asked by a newsman how they kept warm. Moon added: "You don't give up or we'd have been dead two or Ihrec clays ago." How do two men spend four days alone together in a sleeping bag? ''You do a lot of cooperating," Moon said. "Every time you move in a snow cave—every time you eai, sleep or turn over — you do il as a team. "We spent quite a bit of time talking about loved ones," he said. "We were always working out plans, what to do when the weather changed. And we prayed a lot."' Moon said their cave was about seven feet long, :i'/ 2 feet wide and 2^ feet high. He said one would poke his head out twice a day to clear an air hole through the accumulated snow and to check the weather. But otherwise they remained virtually immobile. Moon said he and Flanagan, just acquaintances before, "are much closer now." They ran out of food the second day but their biggest, problem was lack of water. Their small snow melting stove quickly ran out of fuel and Flanagan said they didn't dare eat snow because it would use up precious body heal.

President Nixon has signed a flurry of major bills passed in the closing days of the Hist Congress. Nixon spent New Year's Day with members of his family and a group of aides at the s n o w c o v e r e d presidential retreat at Camp David, Md. He is expected to return to Washington Sunday. The President spent most of Friday afternoon in front of a television set, watching the Cotton Bowl and Hose Bowl football games. With- him at Camp David were- Mrs. Nixon, their elder daughter, Tricia, and her date, Edward F. Cox, a Harvard law student. White House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman, domestic adviser John D. Ehrlichrnan and special assistant Roger Johnson discussed with Nixon the new federal budget and the State of the Union message to be delivered later this month. Nixon acted on 6C bills—a record for him. He signed a housing bill containing $2.9 billion and provision for a national urban-growth policy. The new law, for the first time, provides government insurance against crime in high-risk city areas and requires the president to make recommendations to Congress for setting urban- growth policy.

LOUIS — Mississippi Kiver Transmission Corp. has requested its second rate increase in less than a year for natural gas it surwlios lo distributors in Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. The increase, which would bring $10.6 million in increased revenues to MRTC, is on top of an increase that brought $5.8 million more last year. In addition, MRTC "ad-' justed" its rates Friday to allow for increases in the cost of gas it gets from its suppliers.

On Jan. 1, 1970, MRTC increased their rates by $8.1 million per year, but the Federal Power ' Commission cut that back-to $5.8 million in March. The increase in rates to distributors last year meant a seven cent higher rate for Alton natural gas users from Union Electric and Illinois Power Co. The new increases would boost the cost to Union Electric by 12 per cent and the increase, if approved, is expected to be passed on to the customers.
