House members also complained that the Senate had taken advantage of them by piling unrelated riders on the bill and then presenting it in a way that avoided separate votes on the issues. The vote came on a technical motion that would have cleared the way for consideration of the package worked out in earlier Senate-House conferences. Its effect was to halt further consideration of the complex bill. The measure includes increases in other benefits for aged, blind 'and disabled and long-term unemployed, as well as a variety of unrelated provisions. The most urgent section was one that would have continued the $465 billion limit on government borrowing, Without an extension, it drops Saturday midnight to $400 billion, while the actual debt is approaching $460 billion. The Treasury will run out of operating funds in about a week without an extension. The unexpected development further jeopardized Congress' already shaky plans to recess for a week, beginning today. Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., of the House Ways and Means Committee told the House he would seek agreement on a new compromise as early as possible today. Members discussed the possibility of producing a simple bill limited to the debt limit extension and the increase in Social Security cash benefits for 30 million recipients, eliminating other liberalizing features. The cash benefit increase would have been financed largely by a provision increasing Social Security payroll taxes on higher earnings next year. The increase, applying to those earning more than $12,000, would have been a maximum of $35.10 a month. However, it was estimated that the additional taxes would finance no more than half of the estimated $3.5 billion additional cost of ttw whole package of additional benefits. One explosive' provision of the bill — an immediate cutoff of funds for military operations in Cambodia — already had been eliminated before it came to a vote. r Your feet Deserve To Be Spoiled Everyday With WING Mtfwmd' I L 1A v.w«' I 0-14 • Oil Tanned Water Repellent Leather • Heal Moulded To Prevent Slipping Wedge Heel To Top For Added Support WIDTH A-B-C-D-E SHOES FOR MEN-WOMEN-BOYS-GIRLS OVER 28 YRS.
