The bill, designed to strengthen safeguards against the sale of dan- percns or ineffective drugs, was lis by Kennedy Wednesday as on. . "five particularly important measures" on which Congress v ill be acting shortly. Others he referred to at his news conference were the farm bill, a constitutional amendment to outlaw the poll tax in federal elections, the trade expansion bill and the U.N. bond issue bill. Shortly after the drug bill was called up in the Senate late Wednesday, quick agreement was reached on a limitation of debate (hat should bring a final vote before the end of today's session. The bill, as first approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, fell short of what Kennedy asked. Since then, in the wake of the furor over the sedative thalidomide, the committee has approved strengthening amendments. The legislation was introduced more than a year ago by Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-Tenn., chairman of the Senate Antitrust subcommittee, after a lengthy investigation of the prescription drug industry. Stripped from the bill by the Judiciary Committee were antitrust provisions Kefauver contends are necessary to substan- UaUy reduce what he calls exorbitant drug prices. Kefauver failed to win administration backing for these provisions, but he has re-offered them in modified form. His key amendment provides for compulsory licensing of prescription drug patents after three years when the price to the pharmacist .represents a mark-up of 500 per cent or more over the factory cost. Licensees would have to pay royalties of 8 per cent on sales. In the safety area, Kefauver has an amendment giving the government authority to require the testing of new drugs on animals before they are used in clinical testing on humans. Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, D-Conn., had ready for introduction today a measure which would outlaw the .sale and distribution of sleeping pills and pep pills by all except drug companies, hospitals, clinics, jjublic health agencies, doctors and pharmacists. It would establish strict accounting and reporting procedures. Crowley Man Named Utility Firm Head NEW YORK (AP) - Gerald L.
