serve as notice to the House that the
Senate is not willing to yield again
on this basic issue of the Federal
Government’s obligation toward main
tenance of the Nation’s Capital.
Until a late hour yesterday, indica
tions were the two groups of conferees
would gather this morning for an
other effort to agree. It developed,
however, that some of the members
found other business awaiting their
attention, and decided to find out
whether anything would be gained
by holding the conference.
Senator Thomas got in touch with
Blanton to find out whether there
was any prospect for an agreement.
The Senator said the Texan told him
the House conferees were willing to
meet, but reminded Thomas that the
House members were under instruc
tions not to yield. This had reference
to the resolution Blanton succeeded
in having adopted Tuesday directing
the House members to hold out for
the $2,700,000 lump sum. for elimina
tion of character education and for
a ban on any outside work by District
officials receiving salaries of $2,400
or more a year. Less than half the
! membership of the House voted on
the motion to instruct its conferees
on the lump sum, vote being 142 to 39.
The decision of Senator Thomas
to proceed with the continuing resolu
tion gave new hope for ultimately
sustaining me ouugeu duiraua jjubi
tlon on the lump sum issue, because
passage of the resolution will pu)>
the question up to the House again.
Even if the budget figure of $5,700,
000 is continued for another year, the
local community would be meeting
more than 85 per cent of the ex
penses of the Capital, but if the House
bill should be agreed to, residents
of the District would be called upon
to meet 94 per cent of the total.
In other words, with the House lump
sum of $2,700,000, the Federal Govern
ment would be furnishing only 6 per
cent of a bill totalling about $43,000,
000.
Under the practice of annual lump
sum departures from the unrepealed
substantive law, which fixed the Fed
eral share at 40 per cent, the House |
has cut the Federal payment down in
recent years from a maximum figure |
of $9,500,000 to the present $5,700,000
level, and is now fighting to take an
other $3,000,000 off Uncle Sam's share.
This has been accomplished by in
sisting that the Senate members yield
in conference, and the determination
the Senate group is showing this
year against bowing once more to
the House conference is based partly
on the principle that they should not
have to yield continually on this
question.
There is also strong sentiment in
the Senate against, the House ban on
outside work, which would prevent
judges from lecturing in law schools
and also prevent other .District offi
cials, including doctors, from engaging
in any outside practice.
VATICAN EFFECTS
PILGRIMAGE LAWS
Practice of Recently Issued
Rules Begun as Crowds
Throng Rome.
Fy thr Associated Press.
VATICAN CITY, May 28.-Sweep
ing regulations governing pilgrimages
went Into practice today for the first
time with the arrival of hundreds of
pilgrims to celebrate Pope Pius’ 79th
birthday anniversary Sunday.
The rules were t&fsued in April, but
this was their first application. The
Congregation of the Council promul
gated them in order that "Pious and
religious voyagers may fully conform
to their high purpose.”
The congregation, of which William
Cardinal O’Connell of Boston is a
member, provided that the “pil
grimages must at all times preserve
their religious character and be con
sidered as true and proper acts of
Christian piety.”
Consequently, they must be com
pletely distinct from trips organized
for pleasure or rest. Everything must
be avoided which would conflict with
the religious nature of the voyage.
The congregation declared only ec
clesiastical authorities had the right
to promote and direct pilgrimages.
No company, therefore, even if di
rected bv relielnus Institutes, could
start and guide the pilgrimages unless
they were first promoted, or at least
approved, by the ecclesiastical au
thorities.
These authorities were enjoined to
see that every pilgrimage was pre
pared and carried on under the di
rection of men of recognized virtue.
Each pilgrimage was accompanied by
a priest as spiritual director.
The congregation ruied out all idea
of profit from pilgrimages, declaring:
“In fixing prices, directors of pil
grimages will bear In mind that these
holy voyages must be made possible
also to the faithful of modest finan
cial status. Therefore nothing must
be asked of pilgrims beyond what is
necessary for a prudent administra
tion and every idea of profit must
be completely abandoned.”
The congregation forbade the clergy
to arrange the technical organization
of the pilgrimages. This was left to
“trustworthy and expert laymen.” j
