Bombarded with angry protests from all corners of the country Congress seemed ready today to Repeal the law under which i granted, pension. privileges to its own members, the president and other government officers. I Sen. Barkley (D-Ky), the ma Jority leader, termed the pension act "untimely, unwise and unfor 6inate," and in the general Sen ate debate which followed th concensus appeared to bs that bot House and Senate had made mistake. - There were protests, however, that the act had been misunderstood and an acrimonious exchange between Sen. Byrd (D- Va.), who opposad the pension bill from the start, and Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo.) ' "Unjust Ridicule" | O'Mahoney asserted the legislators had been held up to "unust ridicule" • and declared Byrd was "endeavoring to continue to smear {he members of Congress." •_ "I have never smeared the members of Congress," Byrd. replied heatedly "I resent the imputation. I have told the -truth about this pension bill and I'll continue to tell the truth." . A bit later Byrd told the Senate that O'Mahoney's questions indicated that he was "completely ignorant of this legislation." : Still later, Byrd inquired whether O'Mahoney was accusing him of "smearing Congress" and the Wyoming senator replied that while be might have used those words be had intended no reflection— that his remarks had perhaps •Very unfortunately left the wrong impression." ' Other Rep*ali Intended .' O'Mahoney asked that those who sponsored the original legislation "confess that i blunder has been made" by leading the repeal move. •; Nearest approach to defense of pensions came from Sen. Overton (D-La), who said he had decided against taking one, but reminded that aged lawmakers some times were "thrown upon the Spotlight Stocks - I At A Glance.. NEW YORK, Feb.
