SHep. 3031—OL. 7801 | Byrd to Oppose Delay j In Reducing Number Oi Senate Committees Chairman Byrd of the Senate Rules Committee, served notice to day he will oppose any move in the new Congress to rescind the reor ganization of congressional com mittees in the interest of more effi cient legislating. The Virginia Senator said if the members of Congress "take the bene fits of the reorganization act, such as the pay increase and retirement system, and then don't go through with the other features, they are going to be severely condemned.” The reorganization plan calls for a substantial reduction in the num ber of committees both in the House and Senate. The merging of com mittees will deprive many members of chairmanships, and since Con gress adjourned there have been re i ports that a fight may develop in January to postpone the stream lining operation. Senator Byrd said a delay of a! few weeks may be necessary to carry out the difficult task of reassigning! i members to the merged committees, but that "anything leading to a permanent laying aside of the pro gram will be unpopular." Senate Majority Leader Barkley also expressed the opinion today, the committee reorganization plan is en titled to a fair trial and should be1 put into effect.

Q The upper part of my house is of steel reinforced stucco with a wood frame trim. We have been troubled with leaks in the down stairs rooms. We have had cracks in the stucco caulked three or four i times. What type of siding would you recommend putting over the ; stucco, or is there some other way of preventing the leaks? The power part of the house is face brick. A, I believe the answer to your problem is not additional siding, but repair of the leaks.

We are refinishing our kitchen and would like to know what could be done to remove the hairline cracks on the cupboard doors? i What is the cause of this? A. You may have applied the fin ish without taking the precaution of cleaning off all traces of grease be fore working, or you did not dull the gloss of the old finish. There is al ways a film of grease on kitchen surfaces, which will spoil a paint job if not first removed. Smooth down the surface with sandpaper, and wipe off the dust with a cloth dampened with turpentine. Be careful of fire, and open the win dows. Then put on one or two coats of enamel undercoater and finish with one coat of top quality enamel of the same brand as the under coater.
