Jack Hupp, wants her to keep on before the Demo Road Plan Sure Of Passage WASHINGTON (J) — Sen. Gore (D-Tenn) said today he was : confident than ever of victory for the Democratic road construction bill he is sponsoring after a full day of Senate debate on the issue. Sen. Martin (R-Pa), who has offered President Eisenhower's high way plan as a substitute, conceded in a separate interview he lieved there was small chance of a compromise to save part of the administration program. Democratic leaders expect to have a sizeable margin of votes when the showdown test conn the Martin substitute, probably next Wednesday. They are not conceding the loss of a single Democratic senator this vote, although they say some i ay be against the Gore bill o final passage. But by that timi many Republicans will support it since the alternative will be no increased road program, they say. Explain Bill The Gore bill calls for a five- year program of 517,941 .noo.000 in federal-state spending on federal niri highways, including about billions of federal funds. This would be double the present pro gram in the first year, triple by the fourth and fifth. It would increase federal ot for all four federal aid systems. and finance this nut of direct appropriations. The President's plan calls for n 38 billion dollar program over If years, with all of the increased spending— about 2S billions— devot ed to the 40,000-mile interstate system.

Knowland of California, the Republican leader, said he had no doubt that opponents of the man- r cut would use any failure to approve a reserve bill as an argument against the reductions. "I tmnk the President s military budget will be approved without substantial change, but the reserve issue will give its opponents another argument." he said.
