Four District Bills *
Receive Approval of
Senate Subcommittee
Pour District bills, designed to
change various phases of insurance
laws here and to authorize the sale
of public road property on £ street
S.W., between Twelfth and Thir
teenth streets to Pennsylvania Rail
road, were reported favorably today
to the Senate District Committee.
This action was taken by the pub
lic Utilities’, Insurance and Banking
Subcommittee of that committee,
after public hearings on the measures
this morning. Chairman Buck of
the full committee presided at the
subcommittee hearings. Senator
Cain, Republican, of Washington
also took an active part in the hear
One of the measures was a House
passed bill to permit life insurance
companies to use modem mortality
tables and to calculate nonforfeiture
values in keeping with modem
standards. Witnesses said this would
bring the District into line with leg
islation in practically all the States.
Payment of Benefits.
Another House-passed bill which
was approved provides for payment
of benefits to executives and ad-1
ministrators of the person whose
life is insured, where a named
beneficiary in the life insurance
policy dies before the insured. This
law change is made necessary, due
to a recent Appeals Court decision,
witnesses told the subcommittee.
The third House-passed bill, re
ceiving subcommittee approval to
day, deals with the land sale to the
A third Insurance bill approved,
which was introduced by Senator
Brewster, Republican, of Maine,
would liberalize investments per
mitted by law to life insurance
firms here. Senator Cain closely

trict insurance superintendent, who
described the measure as a good
Meanwhile, seven more municipal
measures awaited action by the com
One is the House-passed bill pro
posing heavy penalties for bribery
or attempted bribery of partici
pants in sports events here.
This measure was reported favor
ably yesterday by the Judiciary
Subcommittee, headed by Senator
Kem, Republican, of Missouri. It
provides a maximum penalty of five
years’ imprisonment plus a $10,000
fine, for the briber, and up to one
year, plus a $5,000 fine, for the player
or official found guilty of fixing or
attempting to fix a game.
Parole Board Bill Approved.
The Kem Subcommittee also put
! its okay on a House-passed bill to
re-organize the District Parole
Board and to broaden the indeter
minate sentence law to permit
parole of prisoners sentenced to
more than 180 days for misdemean
I ors.
Two amendments were added to
1 this measure. One would provide
that the full-time, paid Parole
Board member should not be board
; chairman. The other would specify
that prisoners accused of parole vio
lations be given the right to have
counsel at parole revocation hear
I ings.
The Kem Subcommittee also acted
I favorably on a House-passed bill
to require the District to pay counsel
fees for property owners in con
demnation proceedings when the
award is rejected by the District.
Reports Out Three Bills,
Meanwhile, the McGrath Sub
committee of the Senate District
I Committee reported three bills.
They would revise the system of
j electing Episcopal vestrymen in
1 District parishes, permit District
financing of the Metropolitan Police
Department Band and authorize
the Commissioners to spend up to
$10,000 a year for entertainment of
distinguished visitors. 'Ihe latter
two have House approval.
Tomorrow the House District Com
mittee will consider continuation of
the District’s residential rent con
trol system until next March 31—a
; month later than the proposed ter
iminal date for national rent con
; trols.
A bill to extend the District sys- ,
tem from next December 31 to ■
March 31 was reported favorably
yesterday by the judiciary subcom- .
mittee, headed by Representative ,
O’Hara, Republican, of Minnesota.
It is a revision of a measure offered
by Representative Abemethy, Demo
crat, of Mississippi, which proposed
la continuation for a whole year :

Veto Caravan Parades
Streets in Protest
Against Labor Curb
Labor’s Veto Caravan moved
through downtown Washington at
noon today—cars and buses loaded
with approximately 1,200 union
members from throughout the Na
tion demanding that President Tru
man “Veto and make it stick” the
Taft-Hartley bill.
The automobiles In the parade,
which lost effectiveness when it
was broken up by other traffic, bore
printed signs, painted legends and
banners demanding that the “slave
labor” bill be vetoed.
The procession started at Turner’s
Arena, Fourteenth and W streets,
at 11:30 am., moved down to Con
stitution avenue, circled the Lincoln
Memorial and continued eastward
on Constitution avenue to Fourth
street. Part of the parade swung
through streets around the Capitol
before disbanding.
Meetings Set for Today.
Officials said more than 1,400 labor
representatives had registered last
night to take part in today’s proces
sion, and a series of meetings to dis
cuss and demand veto of the labor
fourteen atju iocais, more tnan
20 CIO unions and two independent
groups were represented, it was re
ported. New York had 592 repre
sentatives registered. Other regis
trations included: California, 30;
New Jersey, 218; Pennsylvania. 210;
Maryland, 10; Ohio, 41; Virginia, 4;
Michigan, 27, and Washington
State, 16.
A station wagon carrying a ban
ner of the Los Angeles newsboys
organization led the procession.
To Picket GOP Headquarters.
From 5 to 6 o’clock this afternoon,
officials said, members of the car
avan will meet to picket Republican
National headquarters. A thousand
pickets will take part in the demon
stration, they predicted.
More than 1,000 of the delegates
jammed the Shiloh Baptist Church, j
1500 Ninth street N.W., for a mass |
meeting last night, cheering speaker
after speaker.
They stood and sang “The Star
Spangled Banner” to open the meet
ing. They sat and sang “Solidarity
Forever” (“for the union makes us
strong”). The public address sys
tem was out of order, but neither
the speakers nor the audience
seemed to mind. Everybody could
hear everybody else.
Russ Nixon, Washington repre
sentative of the United Electrical
Workers (CIO) introduced Senator
Taylor, Democrat, of Idaho, who
told how he was elected to the Sen
ate after three unsuccessful at- i
tempts to get to Congress. ,
When he finished somebody called ;
for a song and the Senator sang, i
“I’m Going Crazy—Don’t You Want :
to Come Along?”
Representative Holineld. Demo
crat, of California was the next
speaker. The crowd booed when
he mentioned Representative Rankin
and cheered at the name of Henry
Wallace. They cheered loudly his ;
plea for labor unity.
Representative Helen Gahagap j
Douglas, Democrat, of California,;
drew a great ovation when she cried:1
‘‘Labor did not break under the goon
squads and tear gas, and it won’t
break now.”
So did Representative Marcan
tonio, American Labor, of New York,
when he said there would be a new
political party in America if the
Taft-Hartley labor bill becomes law.
When Senator Pepper, Democrat,
of Florida was introduced, a voice
in the crowd shouted: “Pepper and
Wallace in 1948.” The Senator said:
“If you would all come to the con
vention, it might be a temptation.”
Rankin MovestoBan
'Duel in the Sun' Here
A resolution by Representative
Rankin. Democrat, of Mississippi,
to prevent further showing in
Washington of the motion picture,
"Duel in the Sun,” which he de
scribed as "filthy, debasing, and in
sulting to the moral instincts of
decent humanity” was referred to
the House District Committee today
for consideration.
In a tirade against the picture,
Mr. Rankin attempted to get his
resolution before the House itself
by unanimpus consent. However,
at the request of Majority Leader
Halleck, he agreed to referring it
to the District Committee.
The resolution called on the police
here “either to close the Palace
Theater, where it ended an engage
ment last night, or prevent the fur
ther showing in the Palace Theater
or any other theater in the District.”
The picture is not being shown any
where in the District today.
Representative Rayburn, Demo
crat, of Texas, minority leader and
former Speaker, rose to charge that
the picture was “a slander on the
fair State of Texas.”
Representative OToole, Democrat,
of New York said the principal effect
of the Rankin resolution and criti
cism of the picture was “$1,000,000
worth of free publicity.”
Representative Celler, Democrat,
of New York questioned the wisdom
of a resolution to close the Palace
Theater. He pointed out that the
film no longer was running there.
Mr. Rankin said that he had re
ceived complaints against the show
from all over the country and he
hoped to force its withdrawal. “Duel
in the Sun” has received attention
from boards of censorship in several
States. Pennsylvania permitted its
showing only after deletions had
been agreed to.

House G. 0. P. Claims
Four-Billion Saving as
SenateGetsOff ices Bill
House Republicans claimed
total savings of $4,483,916,796 to
day as the big $8,167,869,027 in
dependent offices bill moved to
the Senate after passing the
House late yesterday.
Chairman Taber of the House
Appropriations Committee insisted
this was the GOP economy score,
despite the charge of Representative
Gore. Democrat, of Tennessee, yes
terday, that many of the claimed
savings are mere bookkeeping trans
actions, and not actual reductions in
While rival party spokesmen in
the House wrangle over their sepa
rate sets of figures, the real answer
remains to be written, either in the
Senate or in joint conferences. For,
although the House has only two or
three more appropriation bills to
pass, nearly all of them still await
Senate action.
senate May Be Persuaded.
It is a Capitol tradition that Gov
ernment departments can persuade
the Senate frequently to restore
funds turned down by the House.
For example, on the Interior De
partment bill for next year the Sen
ate Committee has relaxed to the
extent of softening a 45 per cent
House cut to 27 per cent of that
department's budget total. \
In passing the Independent Of
fices bill yesterday, the House al
lowed $6,944,457,080 for the Veter
ans’ Administration. The remain
ing $1,048,411,947 in the bill was
scattered among 31 boards and com
All attempts to change money
provisions of the bill were defeated,
voice votes knocking down amend
ments to add $100,000,000 to the
Veterans Administration fund, to
cut $10,000,000 from the same allot
ment, and to add $175,000 to the
Federal Trade Commission’s new
Claim Called “Phony."
Mr. Taber arrived at his $4,483,
916,796 total by adding together
House-voted cuts of $3,701,326,029
in budget estimates, $500,000,000 in
rescissions of previous funds he said
would have been spent next year,
and $282,590,767 in reductions in de
ficiency bills for 1947.
Mr. Gore insisted that $2,699,150,
000 of the claimed GOP savings are
“purely phony budget cut claims”
and “amount to bookkeeping trans
actions that don’t mean a penny in
savings as far as the taxpayers are
concerned.” They are merely “face
saving claims,” he added.
