FLOOD BILL FACES
BATTLE IN HOUSE $384,000,000 Measure Passes Senate Without Bilbo Amendment. By the Associated Press. A sharp new struggle over the big omnibus flood control bill was in prospect today as House members looked over the Senate-approved measure calling lor the spending of $384,000,000. The bill originated in the House last session, but underwent many changes before it passed the Senate yesterday. Senator Copeland, Demo crat, of New York, forecast the House would insist upon the retention of its provisions. A Senate-House con ference wa planned for next week. As it passed the Senate the bill carries authorization for 216 flood fontro! projects, empowers the Presi dent to select projects he believes should be started under the $50,000, 000 available the first year and re quires the interested States and locali ties to share the cost. Bilbo Fights Cost-sharing. The cost-sharing proviso was bit terly fought by Senator Bilbo, Demo crat, of Mississippi, who offered an amendment to require the Federal Government to bear the whole ex pense. The amendment was defeated by a 55-to-15 vote after Copeland de clared. "If you w’ant a bill that amendment must be killed." Bilbo, declaring the New Yorker was resorting to a “veiled threat" of a veto, was supported by Senators Guffey, Democrat, of Pennsylvania; Clark, Democrat, of Missouri, and Davis, Republican, of Pennsylvania. “We are starting on the highway to spend $12,000,000 on flood control,” said the Mississippian. “Let us start right. Let us fix the responsibility on the beneficiaries. The benefits will accrue to every man and woman and should be paid for by the entire Na tion and not saddled on this section or that " Rider Sidetracked. The Senate also sidetracked a rider to create a national resources board to make a survey preparatory to a broad conservation plan and turned down a proposal by Guffey to make the Fed eral Government pay the cost of re locating railroads and highways in building the projects. After passage of the measure, Cope land described it as “the first pork less flood-control bill in the history »f the country." While the Senate acted on the omnibus measure the House voted tc Increase the scop of flood-control proj ects on the Lower Mississippi, as pro vided in the Overton bill, from $272. 000,000 to $398,000,000 and prepared lor a vote on the measure today. An amendment by Representatives Miller and Terry, Arkansas Demo crats. to authorize 26 reservoirs on the Arkansas and White Rivers, was adopted. < DANCE TO BE PRESENTED 100 Dancers Will Participate in Program Monday.
