Measure Carries Corrupt Practices
Rider Liniting Drive
Washington, D. C., Feb. 26. (By A.
P.).-The postal pay and rate increase
bill received final congressional ap-
proval today and now goes to the
president. The conference report,
practically substituting the House bill
for that passed by the Senate was
accepted by the Senate after short
debate. The vte was 69-12, eight
Democrats and four Republicans vot-
ing against the conference report.
The measure provides for an in-
crease of about $300 annually in post-
al employees salaries effective as of
January 1, this year, and increases
postal rates, effective April 15,next,
to raise about $60,000,000 of the $68,-
000,000 required for the pay advances.
The bill also carries as a "rider" a
corrupt practices act strictly limiting
campaign expenditures of congression-
al candidates as. recommended by the
Senate campaign fund committee.
The salary increases are the same as
carried in the measure passed at thet
last scssion and vetoed by Presidentt
Coolidge. With the rate advancest

ers are hopeful the bill will receive£
Opposition to the conference report
today was based entirely on the ratea
provisions, Senator Harrison, Demo-
crat, Mississippi, declaring the Sen-
ate conferees had yielded to the high- a
er rates in the House bill after a con-
ference with President Coolidge. Son-t
ator McKellar, Democrat, Tennessee,t
one of the conferees, also told thel
Senate the president had "asserted his1
preroga.tive" in insisting on some of
the rate increases, mentioning par-1
ticularly the two cents service charge
on parcel packages.
The bill is one of the first pieces of
general legislation outside oi the ap-
propriation m1a sues to be sent, to the
White House this session. It was ad-
vanced at the time by the Senate, by
a close margin vote to sustain the
veto of a pay increase measure.
While no time limit is placed on the
rate increases, the bill provides for
a joint congressional committee to
conduct hearings this summer with a
view to recommending further revi-
