Gene of New Mexico and Jack of St Louis, Mo. WASHINGTON (AP) — Ad-i ministration forces in the Sen-i ate try today to defeat a propos-j al to give a tax break to parents j of college students. j The administration suffered; • one surprising setback OR the! jJ6-bi!lion tax bill Tuesday when) iRepublicans succeeded in add-: ing to the bill an amendment! to grant Social Security benefits • to some 1-8 million persons over; '70 not now covered. I The amendment was ap-j proved by a vote of 45 to 40and. carries an estimated price tag of $750 million a year. Whether or not it stays in the measure — provided the bill passes — would be decided when Senate and House conferees compromise differences in their versions of the legislation. Administration leaders said they expected a close vote today on Sen. Abraham A. Ribicoffs amendment to give an annual tax saving of up to $325 for college expenses. Annual cost of the proposal was put at SI bil- jlion. but the Connecticut Demo- j crat said it would not take effect ! until 1968. j The Ribicoff amendment was : defeated by only three votes in Senate leaders were hopeful action could be completed on the tax measure later today. It would reinstate excise tax cuts made recently on phone calls and car sales and would speed up collection of personal and corporate income taxes. As submitted by the administration and approved Feb. 26 by the House, the measure would : provide additional revenue of $1_2 billion in the current fiscal year and $4-8 billion in the fiscal year which starts July L ! The Social Security amend- 1 'ment adopted Tuesday long has been pushed by Sen. Winston L. t-routy, R-Vt- It was beaten last year 53 to 36 when offered as a rider to the Social Security health care ; leaders conceded this led them to underrate its chances this .time. The amendment won votes ofjj 26 Republicans and 19 Demo-M crats Tuesday wish 31 Demo-ii crats and 9 Republicans op-j posed. I Under the Prouty amend-! ment, the 1.8 million persons would receive minimum Social, Security payments of 544 a; month for an individual, 566 for; a couple. ': The extra cost would be; charged to the Treasury's gea-j eral funds, not the Social Secu-j Irity trust fund. ' A protest meeting against the Baytown Housing Authority will be held at -i p.m- Wednesday at 425 Clyde Drive where Mrs. Carrie Lee Williams and her family of seven were evicted Monday morning in Archer Courts. Dr. FL L. Finney, representing the Greater Baytown Civic League, said. "We are going "to follow through on a protest against the housing authority because of this development <Mrs. Williams' eviction) and other things that have been going on for the last year or two." Dr. Firmey, who is pastor of the Thompson Methodist Chapel in Oak Addition, said the purpose of the meeting Wednesday is "to gather all the information we can." "We feel that the public ought to be a-.vare of some of the situations that exist because "this is a federal administration. We are going to get all the information that we can." He said the policies of the housing ah~ thority should either be abided or if necessary, "changed. "There are numerous occasions when people (from the housing authority) . have entered these homes without any notification." Dr. Finney said. •There are occasions when utilities have been cut off without notifications and occasions when late charges were raised Trom $1 to 56 without prior notification." The late charge, Dr. Finney explained, is a penalty attached to late payment of rent. "There is also indications," Jse continued," that some people living in the project are above the income required. This is supposed to be a low income bracket. We have in(Sec EVICTION.
