Mr. anJ Mrs. Bill Sell have re- Washington-W)-You can always kill a chicken, without leaving tell-tale, feathers around, by shoving it into a cooler till it freezes to death. Congress has a 'special deep freeze of its own on hand when it wants to avoid an embarrassing situation, like a showdown vote on UMT. It simply sends the bill back to a committee for further study, even though that same committee had knocked itself out studying the bill, That's what the House did this week with a bill on universal military training. And, as usual, rigor./mortis was detected immediately. -;The"subject of UMT is, and has been, a hot potato. President Truman, General Eisenhower and. the veterans and service organizations all lavorcd it. ' Against it were the AFL, CIO, farm ·-.groups, some -educators, spokesmen for several churches and a lot of parents; Particularly a lot of parents. So the House Armed Services Committee knew it was walking on eggs when early this year it began hearings on a UMT bill. 70 Witnesses Heard . It 'held hearings 19 days and listened to 70 witnesses, for and against. H prodded, · probed, and looked under the bed. Finally, by a vote of 27 to 7, the committee members decided we should go ahead with UMT and draw up a b i l l . l o do just that. ' This bill would have permitted the government to start a small experimental UMT program next fall, taking 18-year-olds- for six months training. Then the committee sent, the full bill t o ' t h e House for a vote. This certainly would be ambar- rassing. By coincidence, the UMT program would start next fall just about the time members of Congress were up for reelection. And a great many parents, who are also vqters, had, written a great many letters against UMT to their, congressmen. Result Closely Watched In fact, all those who opposed U M T . would be watching the final vote. The House bravely picked up the bill and marched up the hill with it. Just before ii reached the crest--the time for a vote--the House marched down the hill just as swiftly. Speaker Sam Rayburn made a special plea: "Do we not have the fortitude--do we not have the courage--to meet this issue today?" ,'; Apparently the -House didn't, because it then voted to send the bill back to the committee, thus avoiding the final tell-tale, vote. And there the bill now. lies. It's expected to lie there, un- acted upon, for the rest of the session. Now a congressman who voted to seno) the bill back to commit tee can have a any friend of ready answer for UMT who interrupts a campaign speech back home with a. question like this: "Why d i d ' you vote to send the bill back when that in effect kills i t ? " The congressman ccn say he didn't vote against UMT but merely thought the bill needed further study before a ' f i n a l vote. And no one who's against UMT can be angry at a congressman who voted to return it to the committee. turned home Trom Kansas City, Mo., where Mrs. Sell has been the guest of Mrs. Tom Lee for two weeks.
