Congress Ready

For Tough Bill


Associated Press Staff Writer
WASHINGTON-The domestic tranquility of President Lyndon
B. Johnson's relations with the 89th Congress is about to be sundered
by arguments over forthcoming legislation.
Under constant prodding from the President, the Senate got
off to its speediest start in years. The House hasn't been as diligent
in passing bills and the Senate has about run out of retreads-
measures similar to those it passed last year but on which the
House didn't act. But now come the tough ones, bills which are
certain to arouse considerable controversy. In the opinion of Senate
Democratic Leader Mike Mans-

Posits. This move to free additional gold reserves has the support
of Republican leaders. .
* Plotting Opposition
But Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois has cooked
up some opposition to a Johnson proposal for a Constitutional
amendment on Presidential inability which will come up after
disposal of the gold bill.
Republicans are complaining about the farm of the President's
proposals for aid to education. And some of them are offering
alternatives for his program for health care for the elderly financed
by a payroll tax.
There is bipartisan opposition to Johnson's plan to revise the
immigration laws to abolish the present national origins immigration
Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel of California, the assistant Republican
leader, said in a letter to the Senate Immigration Subcommittee it
is time to wipe out the national origins quotas on immigration. But
f many others favor retention.
End Quota System
"Let us wipe out the discriminatory quota system," Kuchel
urged. "Let us allow people' who will aid our nation's continued
growth to enter this country. Let us open our doors to those who
need asylum most."
Heading into these controversies, the President has rubbed a
great many members of Congress the wrong way by executive
orders shutting down military establishments, closing veterans'
hospitals and agricultural research stations.
How much these abrasive measures will affect his support for
major legislation remains to be seen.

Democrats converged on Grand
