The vote against the proposal of
Senator Harrison. Democrat. Missis

for this purpose was 37 to 15. Work

approaching a vote on the controver

Mil.
The galleries were filled with war
veterans, many of whom hoped the
bill would provide jobs for them.
The Senate then added to the Dem
ocratic relief bill the $300,000,000 mea
sure it passed two weeks ago for em
ergency jobless aid loans to states.
This brought the total of the Demo
cratic bill to $2,300,000,000.
The $300,000,000 bill was originally
a part of the measure, but was separ
ated in an effort to speed its enact
ment.
House leaders, however, refused to
consider the separate measure, and the
Senate replaced It in the bill to get it
into conference.
Before approving it. however, the
Senate amended the bill to provide
for immediate advances to State gov
ernments of one-third of the funds al
located to them.
