A bill intended to bar the award er acceptance of price discrimina tions was passed yesterday by the Senate and sent to the House where •lmllar legislation is pending.

Congressional leaders said the plan was for the House to substitute a new bill for the Robinson bill in the form of an amendment and then turn the entire legislation over to Senate House conferees. The Senate bill, as passed, would prohibit price discriminations be tween purchasers of commodities of like grade and quality: ban fake pro motional allowances, brokerage fees and commissions, and give the Fed eral Trade Commission authority to limit quantity discounts in certain in stances. The Vandenberg amendment pro posed that nothing in the bill should prevent discrimination in price by reasons of differences in quantity in manufacturing.

Democrat, of Ken tucky. who assisted Robinson In the floor fight, expressed fear that If the exemption were made "we would nm into difficulty at the Supreme Court." The amendment was defeated. Later Vandenberg returned to the subject. Robinson and Logan consulted hur riedly and finally Robinson said he would withdraw his objection, express ing the view the conference could study the proposal. The amendment thereupon was accepted. Receipt of discriminating prices was proposed in an amendment Uy Copeland, Democrat, of New York, which was accepted.
