the city.
WORK UNFINISHED:
Congress recesses

DISCUSSION

WASHINGTON (T) - The 93rd
Congress left much of its work
unfinished when members left
town yesterday for a month-long
recess.
It will have such a big work-
load when it reconvenes Nov.
18 that chances appear dim both
for major Democratic b i 11 s
and for President Ford's
"must" bills, including his eco-,
nomic program.
On Sept. 11, Senate and House'
Democratic leaders met to con-;
sider the program for the rest'
of the year and to fix their leg-
islative goals.
They announced that they hop-
ed for these accomplishments
by the mid-October recess:
-Action on the nomination of
Nelson A. Rockefeller to be
vice president.
-Final passage of the trade'
bill, given high priority by the
President.
-Senate passage of a national
health insurance bill.
-House passage of a tax re-
form bill including new levies
on the high profits of the oil
companies.
THE REALITY, as the re-
cess began Thursday night, was
somewhat different.
The Senate Rules Committee
has conducted hearings on
Rockefeller but has concluded
he will have to be called back.
The House Judiciary Commit-,
tee has not even set a date to

hear him. Republican leaders,
already are charging un:oa-
scionable delays.
There was progess yesterday
on the trade reform bill, how-
ever, when Sen. Henry Jacksnn
(D-Wash.) announced a U.S.I
agreement with the Soviet Un-

As for tax reform, Sen. Ru,-

underaraduate education and a challengina, respon-
sible career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do
work traditionally done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you
the skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You
choose one of the six courses offered-choose the
city in which you want to work.
Since 1970. The Institute for Paralegal Traininq
has placed more than 700 graduates in low firms,
banks, and corporations in over 60 cities.

U,

es for any final action on tmis
appear remote.
The tax reform bill has not
yet been reported out of t h e
House Ways and Means Com-
mittee. This bill has been com-
plicated by the President's sub-
mission of additional tax pro-I
posals including the highly con-
troversial 5 per cent surcharge
on couples with incomes of
$15,000 or more and individuals
with incomes of $7,300 ,.nd'
above.
Democratic leaders have said
throughout the 93rd Congress
that tax 'reform and nalional
health insurance were going to
receive the highest priority.
BUT NO concensus has been
reached on health insuranc.a,
with a wide variety of propos-
als competing for votes.

HOWEVER, the Louisiana
senator says a stripped-d u w nI
bill covering a few subjects siull
is possible.
But if such a measure is work-
ed out it is unlikely to include
Ford's surcharge recommenda-
tion. That has drawn fire from
most Democrats and manyR Re-
publicans.
Congress completed action on
only one of Ford's econornic re-
commendations before it re-
cessed.
THIS WAS a housing biII
making. available $7.7 bill ioi of
additional mortgage funds but
on more liberal terms t.an the
President proposed. Ford sign-
ed the bill Friday.
The President's public service'
jobs program is in trouble at
the Capitol, with many legislat-
ors criticizing it as too restric-
tive. But some alterna !ve p.ro-'
bably will be sent to hini the
post-election session.
Three controversial nomnra-'
tions died with the adjournment
of Congress, but President Ford
can revive them.
