1 VOH IS OFF ’TILL MONDAY (Continued From Page One) — pair with Wagner and two more to pair with Thomas. '**7 Taft, smiling confidently, pre dicted that the veto win b£V over* ridden “by three or four vo’tes.’’ This was the margin forecast by .toother supporters of the bill, too. Taft expressed the belief that '7,7 the sharp floor fight had streng thened his side, rather than weak ened it, and told newsmen: 't:V “We’re all right. The line is holding very well indeed.’’ The lineup had. been 54 to 17, .IV,more than a two-thirds majority, A when the senate passed the bill “ June 6. 777 The agreement for a vote came 77 when Senator Morse. (R.-Ore.) gave up what he acknowledged ,A as a filibuster “to assure unlim n;.. jted debate” after holding the floor ten hours non-stop. It followed an hour of whis pered conferences on the floor and dickering in the cloakrooms among Senator Wherry (R.-Neb.) the GOP whip, and a dozen other leaders cf both sides. Wherry said that his earlier experience in “trading mules” helped him to j win the agreement. The House voted yesieiaay override the veto as soon as Mr. Truman’s blistering message had been read. Similar action by the Senate thus would make the' bill law as soon as the officers of j congress signed it. The bill’s supporters demonstrat- j cd during the night that they can «leep on cloakroom couches with the best of them. Each tinie some one forced a nose count, they came out in numbers. The presi dent’s supporters were less evid ent as the night wore on with one attempt after another for a vote agreement being blocked. The usual show of the senate grinding ahead without respite, its first marathon of this kind since 1927, brought crowds of sight-seers to the galleries. The bobby-sox, • all-night movie crowd had pro vided most of the few spectators ■who stayed through until dawn. While the senate argued, admin istration anl labor leaders were busy attempling to build pressure on senators. Telegrams poured in after Mr. Truman’s radio talk, counteracted in part by messages Inspired by Taft in a bristling radio reply 30 minutes later. At the White House several hun dred telegrams were received. Eben Ayers, assistant press sec IT’S USEFUL! BIKE TIRE 2%-inch balloon bike tire with heavy skid - proof tread. Black.

The 24-year-old daughter of Winston Churchill, married in February to Capt Christopher Soames, declined com ment on the report. retary, reported they ran about 5 to 1 in support o£ the veto. Senator Byrd (D.-\?a.), support er of the bill, called attention in a statement to what ne said was “terrific pressure exerted upon the senate.” “The result of sustaining the president’s veto might well be calamitous,” he declared. “It would extinguish the last hope for worthwhile labor reform legisla tion for a long time to come. If we cannot manage John L. Lewis at home, how can we expect to protect ourselves against Joe Stalin abroad?” Senator Flanders (R.-Vt.) an nounced he will vote to override the veto although he is “dubious” about some of the bill’s provisions. Flanders said he will introduce some proposed revisions in the measure, if it becomes lav. He did not specify Iticse. Morse made a point-by-point at tack on provisions of the bill, fol lowing much the same line the president used. The president particularly as sailed a provision under which the government could obtain 80-day injunctions against national paraly" sis strikes, such as a coal walk out.

SENORA PERON LIKE ELEANOR Likeness Mentioned In Brit ish Discumion Of Welcome LONDON. June 21—(/P)—The Sun day Pictorial, which said in its June 15 issue that Senora Eva Duarte Peron, wife of Argentina’s president, would not be welcome! in Britain, published a rejoinder tonight by Lord Strabolgi, laborite peer, declaring she would be. Senora Peron is expected to visit Britain July 15 to 19 after visiting Italy and other countries on the continent. A reception committee has been formed here under the chairmanship of Lord Davidson, chairman of the Hispanic council. The council reported tonight that it had issued a memorandum to its staff saying that “the Hispanic '’'vncil is an unofficial organiza tion and does not pretend to know a. official policy is except when it is announced,” but that it under stood the government welcomed Senora Peron’s visit. Strabolgi’s article in the Sunday Pictorial said: “I can best describe her as the South American Eleanor Roosevelt. She is intensely interested in poli tics and, in particular, has played a considerable part already in her own country in encouraging im provement of hospitals, the open- j Ing of schools for orphan children, j housing for the poorer sections of the population and homes for the j aged, xxx “How true is it to say the pres ent government in the Argentina is Fascist? “Admittedly the country came into the war very late, but so did some of our other allies. Ad mittedly, also, there was delay in rooting out Nazi and other Ger man influences. Certain phases of the government certainly are dic tatorial, but we must remember that this is South America, where Democracy is comparatively young. “On the other hand, the election last year was fairly conducted and it gave Peron and his government a large majority. He has shown himself friendly to the Jews and has discouraged anti-semitism. “I believe the natural courtesy and hospitality of the British people will insure a warm-hearted re- ] ception for this talented lady, who, I am confident, is only desirous of | strengthening the links between her country and ours.” EUROPEANS ‘AID’ REPORTED STARVING AMERICAN PEOPLE NEW YORK, June 21—(iP)—The New York Times says a mysterious movement of thousands of food parcels from the Mediterranean area to the United Stales has been in progress for months with the shipments apparently destined for "supposedly starving American relatives and friends.” The disclosure, the new^oaper said, was made by federal authori ties at the customs house during an inquiry into illegal meat im portations into this country.
