House Action.Blocked ,
A deadlocl in the Senate-House
conference on a bill raising social
security retirement payments by
$5 to $7 a month blocked House
action on a Senate 'amendment
calling for a system of health care
for the eldery under the Social
Security program.
The Senate conferees refused to
drop the rider, the House con-
ferees refused to accept it and the
resulting stalemate killed the
whole bill. Political recriminations
started immediately.
The Senate-approved program

state Appalachia area never reach-

tic leadership decided it could not
risk a' knock-down fight in the
face of heavy absenteeism and the
remaining members' anxiety to
plunge into the homefront politi-
cal battles in which all 'the 435
House seats must be filled.
The administration seized quick-
ly on the health care issue, with

of the conferees, telling newsmen:

DAMASCUS-A move to coun-

reportedly planned by Orthodox
Catholic bishops of the historic

This brought prompt counterfire
from Sen. John J. Williams, (R-
Del), another conferee:
"This means that Congress is
going home after having voted
itself a $7500 annual salary in-
crease ... while at the same time
denying increases for those living
on social security.
"This action demonstrates the
political farce of this administra-
tion's claim to an interest in the
welfare of our elderly citizens."
Administration feelers about re-
cessing Congress until after the
election generated no apparent
support, and the day's develop-

quick adjournment.
He said, "'I didn't know we had
as many majority leaders in Con-
gress as we have. They're all hop-
ing to ,go home this week. I hope
they go home too."
Another major closing-hour ac-
tion was Senate passage and dis-
patch to the White House of a
$1.8-billion bill extending the De-
fense Education Act until June 30,
1968, and broadening its scope to
cover aid for the teaching of non-
scientific subjects.;
This measure also extends for
a year the program of aid to
school districts where children of
federal personnel are enrolled.

money bills to the White House.

First the Senate and then the
House passed the $3.5-billion au-

overseas spending ceilings for the
fiscal year that started July 1.

which provides the actual money

Senate had passed this Thursday.
Morse Protests
The chief protester in the Sen-
ate, Sen. Wayne Morse (D-Ore),
declared that the Senate had
"walked out on 40 Senate pro-_
visions while the House ,conceded
on only five in the Senate-House
conference committee on the au-
thorization bill.
In the House, before the money
bill passed, Rep. H. R. Gross (R-

to the foreign handout program."
Gross praised the conferees fori
providing a'bill $77 million below

men could get.
Too Weak, Tao Drastic

mise rider, which had passed the
Senate after a weeks-long filibus-

dropped by the conferees Thurs-

Stabler Blasts
Romne for 1
School Claims
By The Associated Pressa
The biggest verbal salvo of the'
Michigan gubernatorial campaign
was fired Thursday when Demo-
cratic candidate Neil Staebler
charged that "Gov. (George) Rom-
gress are phony." I
Staebler said "The present Re- 9
publican governor has tried to'
turn a record of educational fail-'
ure into one of success.
"No matter how he tries tos
twist his record, the facts don't b
support him.'
"Although the present governor t
had more tax revenue to spend r
than any governor in'the history v
of the state, his own recommenda- t
tions were at least $30 million be- t
low requested operating funds in o
1963. They were only 'a quarter
of the requested building funds.
for 1963.
: Romney even ignored the re-
port of his own Blue Ribbon Com-
mittee on Education.
"He was $4 million below the
committee's absolute minimum in
operating funds and a full $16
million below the absolute. mini-:
mum for building funds."
ThedDemocratic candidate also
charged that state aid to locall
school districts had not kept up
with rising costs. He said the
actual increase in state aid
amounted to only 5.3 per cent of
the over-all budget, whereas costs!
went up six per cent.

Virtually none of the students
now leaving the country has
scholarships. Families are invest-
ing life savings in the expensive
airplane trip to Europe and on
subsequent living allowances for
their offspring.
The flood gates of emigration
recently were opened by a liberal-
ized government visa policy. Inj
the past, only a handful.,of stu-
dents was permitted to leave the.
country-after having been rigor-
ously screened by the government
for political reliability.
Exact figures on departures are
unavailable, but in the past several
weeks at least 400 students have
left. Approximately that many
more are booked to leave. Persons
seeking exit visas probably num-
ber in the thousands.
A young woman, now working as
an official in Saigon, compared
the new exodus with her own ear-
lier experiences.
"In 1952, thousands of us leftI
as students because we knew the
French regime was collapsing and
t looked as if Viet Nam was
going up in flames. Two years
later, the French did collapse,"
she said. "None of us had much
money at the time. Most of us
went by ship. We traveled in
steerage class like so many cattle,
because wounded French troops
were using the better acdommoda-
ions. Our families made huge sac-
rifices to get us out because they
wanted something of the family
to survive for better things. I think
the same kind of thing is going
on now."
