Knowland (R-Calif) said the action probably means the bill is dead for this year. Sen. Potter (R-Mich) reported on Eisenhower's reaction after a call at the White House Friday morning to discuss another matter with the President. Without elaborating, Potter told newsmen "the President is .... unhappy" about losing the fight against the jury trial amendment.

"I just didn't have the votes," he said. Adoption of the jury trial, k e t. ers on mortgage loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Before September No time was mentioned in connection with the rate increase, but reports were current that an announcement might be made before September. Firm loan commitments already made presumably would not be affected. There was no immediate comment from housing officials. A reduction in FHA down payment requirements for prospective home buyers was authorized and imposition of sharply lower ceilings on discounts was ordered by Congress in new housing legislation signed July 12 by President Eisenhower. The discounting practice, which has spread rapidly during the credit pinch, means the builder receives. less than the face value of a home-owner's mortgage when he transfers that mortgage to a bank. The bank deducts a certain amount td compensate for the fact that earnings on mortgages may be less than the interest available through over investments. Partially Confirmed Reports that FHA planned to increase its interest charge were partially confirmed by Rep. Rains (D-Ala), chairman of the Housing Subcommittee of the House. He told a reporter he had been "informed such a study was under way" in the administration in connection with impending reduction of down payment requirements. "1 am afraid they are also going to increase the interest rate," he said. Such action, if taken, would be certain to bring howls from Congress, where administration monetary policies involving higher government interest rates already have come under attack. - FHA was criticized sharply for increasing the rate from 4 1 * to 5 per cent last Dec. 1 in an announced move to make FHA loans competitive in a tight money mar- amendment, he said, probably means that any measure the Sen'. ate passes will be tied up in a Easels will be produced at six: Senate-House disagreement.

On the dramatic roll call Vote, witnessed by spectators who crammed the Senate gallery, the party lineup was 39 Democrats and 12 Republicans for the amendment and 9 Democrats and 33 Republicans against it. More Than Expected This was a wider margin of victory for the jury trial advocates than had been anticipated. But approval of the amendment had been foreshadowed when, at midafternoon Thursday, Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas announced that the vote might come at any time. Johnson had been working feverishly behind the scenes to line up enough votes for the proposal. His announcement was taken as a signal he had succeeded. Only two senators were absent on the roll call vote. They were Sen. Neely (D-WVa>, who is in the nearby Bethesda Naval Hospital, and Sen.
