Likely to Win Upper House Vote. Opposition to the elimination of the half-and-half plan from the Mlstrtct spproprlstlon bill I? rapidly develop ing; in the Senate. It Is practically as sured now that the Senate will vote solidly to keep it tn. In much less time then it took the House to strike It out. Senator Martin, chairman of the Senate Appropriation Committee has come out flatly against the action of the House and as Democratic leader of th? Senate, he Is expected to use his Influence to have the Senate re tain th? provision. Senator Oallinger, Republican lead er. Is siso bitterly opposed to leaving out the half-and-half plan. Neither he nor Senator Martin is in favor of changing the financial relations be tween the District government and the Federal government. Neither will they, If present Indications are borne out, come anywhere near adopting the House view of the matter, name ly, economy above all things, which actuated the House in striking; out the half-and-half provision.
