The Clark move did not win any
general backing even from sup-

oratory aimed in large part at the
voters back home.
The program authorizes the
President to negotiate tariff cuts
with other nations willing to cut
their tariffs on United States
goods. The House has voted to
grant a five-year egterision, with
authority for the President to cut
tariffs up to 25 per cent.

WASHINGTON (P)-In spite of
predictions of presidential veto,
the House yesterday passed a bill
designed to prevent the Supreme
Court from knocking out state
laws not in direct conflict with
federal laws on the same subject.

vote of 241-155 after three day$
of debate, now gpes to the Senate,
where indications were it wouldn't
be nearly so popular.
* The bill was introduced by Rep.

Judiciary Committee last month
by a split vote. It had the backing
of Southern Democrats and most
Republicans. They said it was

tional rights of state legislatures.
