Probably the most noteworthy acts of the 1959 session were to admit Hawaii as the 50th state and to pass a far-reaching labor regulation bill. But the list of major bills left over for what must be a far shorter session next year is longer than the roll of 1959 accomplishments. Congress then will be driving for an early July adjournment, in advance of the Democratic national convention meeting July 11 in Los Angeles.

On several important issues, the Democratic leadership got legislation passed this year, but reduced far below expectations at the start of the session. In this category were housing, highways, and aid for airport construction. The spending issue dominated much of the session, with President Eisenhower getting far more mileage out of this than many Democrats had believed possible eight months ago. The complete recovery from the 1957-58 economic recession aided the administration in this fight. Record Budget To meet the spending charge. so, the total of $81,975,368,352 voted in the session was a record for any peacetime year, and fell below only two World War II and two Korean War years. Republicans said indirect appropriations would add still more. Probably the most dramatic debates this year in both branches swirled around the labor regulation bill. The measure which resulted was a big victory for Eisenhower. Congress finally passed a broad measure regulating unions' internal affairs on such matters as finances, elections and trusteeships and members' rights, and chang- quest for legislation to try to cut down on the mounting farm surpluses. The President asked for a IVi cent a gallon increase in the gasoline tax to keep the national superhighway program going and meet a deficit in the highway trust fund. lc Gas Tax Boost The Democrats at first rejected any gas tax hike but finally reluctantly put through a temporary 1 cent boost. Even with this there will be a slowdown in the program. But advocates of a broad bill did gain a promise that there would be a floor consideration in the Senate next February.

But many sections of the country saw anti-Khrushchev parades, rallies, mourning protests and other demonstrations.

In Washington a protest rally by the American Council of Christian Churches, which represents a small and fundamentalist segment of American Protestantism, drew 600 to the Washington Monument grounds. Chairs had been set up for 2,500. Roman Catholic churchmen in many areas called for tolling of funeral bells, prayers and other mourning demonstrations.
