WASHINGTON, March 19. - (A") -
Prolonged and bitter debate, particu-
larly in the Senate, is expected to
develop over President Roosevelt's re-
quest that $1,500,000,000 be approp-
riated for the continuance of federal
Although the requested allotment
is small in comparison with the $4,-
880,000,000 supplied by Congress last
year, it raises most of the controver-
sial questions brought to the surface
by the larger appropriation.
In the debating of these questions,
the Senate is expected to provide a
theatre of bitter controversy. The
House, which last year passed the
$4,880,000,000 bill in less than a week,
is not in as acquiescent a mood as a
year ago and is likely to have its own
innings of fighting on the question
this year. In the end, however, pas-
sage is insured in the House because
of its overwhelming majority of Dem-
After reading the \message, most
leaders privately gave up hone ^f ad-
journment at any near date. Con-
troversy over the tax bill has been so
keen as to cause adjournment plans
to be postponed, in leaders' private
calculations, until nearer June 1 than
May 1. With relief and taxes now
providing a double-edged controversy,
talk from now on will revolve around
the question of whether it will be pos-
sible to get Congress away from the
capital in time for the national po-
litical conventions next summer.
Issues raised following the Presi-
dent's relief message includerthe
amount which should be appropriat-
ed, whether it should be spent for
WPA or PWA projects, work relief
versus the dole, Federal versus local
administration of relief, and the op-
position to granting another "blank
check" to Mr. Roosevelt.
