Congress Considers
Vacation During
July and August
Legislators Are Anxious
To Get Home and Build
Political Fences
By the Associated Pro'*.
The “indefinitely postponed" sign
was hung on proposed labor and
farm price legislation today as lead
ers studied the possibility of letting
Congress take a short summer va
cation. beginning about July 1. while
a Senate committee puts the finish
ing touches on the new tax bill.
The Seventy-seventh Congress
has been in almost continuous ses
sion since it convened on January
3. 1941. and some legislators with
elections coming up this year—
which include all of the members
of the House and more than one
third of the Senate—have expressed
the desire privately to get home
and look into the condition of their
political affairs.
Legislation “Checked Off ”
With this in mind leaders were
said to have checked off the possi
bility of immediate action on con
troversial proposals to curb or
ganized labor s privileges in war
time or on President Roosevelt's
suggestion that price control ceil
ings on farm prices be lowered.
Advocates of restrictive labor
legislation conceded that the col
lapse of recent efforts to bring such
measures before Congress meant
that nothing was likely to be done
to revive these bills for weeks or
possibly months. Informed can
vasses were said to have convinced
administration lieutenants they
lacked sufficient votes to overcome
the farm bloc’s opposition to the
President's proposal to make parity
the top for agricultural prices.
Chief Order of Business.
Thus enactment of the new
$7,610,000,000 tax bill seemed to be
the chief order of business, aside
from passage of regular appropria
tions measures and speedy consid
eration of any additional military

by the President.
Chairman George said the Sen
ate Finance Committee would go to
work on the tax bill immediately
after its approval by the House,
adding that he saw no reason why
other legislators should not take a
brief vacation while the commit
tee held hearings and whipped the
measure in shape for Senate con
sideration .
Although estimates of the time
required for committee action va
ried. one influential Senator said
he believed both houses could take
informal leave of Washington for
July and August, barring other
developments.
