WASHINGTON, May 12 - (/P) -
The Senate today was plunged head
long into a partisan controversy over
the House-approved $2,364,229,712
Relief and Deficiency Mill, with a
majority spokesman leaping up to
defend the Works Progress Adminis-"
tration after a sharp Republican
The debate was started by Sena-
tor Vandenberg (Rep. Mich) who in-
troduced an amendment to the bill
calling for a transfer of relief admin-
istration back to the state and local
governments. The present system,
he shouted, cannot be protected from
"the consequences of political admin-
istration, prostitution and duress."
Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the
majority leader, jumped to his feet
to declare that "more politics" would
result from the shift of control to
the states and recalled that the
House yesterday voted down "three
to one" a similar proposition when
it was advanced there.
Senator Byrnes (Dem-S.C.) then
asserted that "adoption of any such
plan would delay the functioning of
this all important agency at this
Even before the debate opened, an-
other echo was heard of the con-
troversy that surrounded the bill in
the House. It concerned PWA.
WhereasDemocratic House bloc
sought unsuccessfully to earmark
$700,000,000 of the $1,425,000,000 re-
lief fund for Secretary Ickes' agency,
however, Senator Hayden (Dem-
Ariz.) introduced an amendment to
give an additional $700,000,000 to
the Public Works Administration.
More than one member of the Sen-
ate appropriations sub - committee
which will take up the big measure
tomorrow, contended, however, that
the Hayden amendment awaited a
doubtful fate.
