Road Bill Passed by Senate After, Long Session

Measure Provides For 40,000-Mile Highway System Costing Billions

Associated Press

The Senate wound up a marathon session early today) by passing a giant highway) bill providing for the biggest) Federal construction pro- gram in peacetime history. |

Passage eame on a voice vole) after the Senate had been in} session more than 14 hours. |

The major provision of the bill sets up a 40,000-mile system | of interstate and defense high- ways connecting 42 state capi- tals and 90 per cent of all cities over 50,000 population.

The bill now goes to confer-| ence with the House, but legis-| ation launching the multi-' billion-dollar program will ppobably be agreed on soon be-| @ause House and Sengte ver- sions differ only in details. |

Most of what President Eisenhower wants in the way | of a highway modernization: program is incorporated in the measure. His plan to finance’ the project with bond issues| was rejected by Congress_last' year, however. |

In the 1956 version, both branches have written in more than 14 billion dollars ini new taxes on highway users to run the program on a pay-as-you- build basis. |

Most of the revenue would| be obtained from a penny hike! in the Federal gasoline tax, now two cents a fallon.

The House bill, passed April 27, call s for 51% billion dol- lars of Federal-state spending on new roads over a 13-year period.

The Senate measure would be about the same if it also were projected over 13 years. But its actual total is only about 37 billion in Federal- state funds because it extends for 13 years only the authori- vation for the40-000-mile inter- state system of super-highways. Allotments for the other three Federal aid road systems would run five years under the Sen- ate provisions

But both also provided ereased Federal funds for the ‘other three systems—the pri- mary, secondary or farm-to- market, and urban

Both bills fix the Federal con- tribution to the interstate net- work at $25 billion, estimated to cover 90 per cent of the cost. At present the matching form- ula on interstate construction is 60-40,. with the Federal Govern- ment putting up the larger amount. It is 50-50 for the other three svstems now

In addition to the increased gas tax, there also would be boosts in the levies on diesel fuel, tires, tread rubber, trucks, buses and trailers

Morris said that UGF ac- cepted “in toto” all the Red Cross national policies which govern participation in feder- ated drives.

The court held that leaving Mrs. Riley that much in debt on the house interfered with her Constitutional rights of home ownership, “the highest form of property known to the lew.”

The Housing and Home Fi- nance Agency, it was learned, also will support an appeal. HHFA Urban Renewal Com.- missioner James W. Follin, speaking in St. Louis yester- day to a group of housing of- ficiais, said the decision raised “a serious question” whether the federally aided redevelop- ment program could go for- ward ona “‘ull-fledged” basis.

fornia would be an a higher’

level.

Arriving in San Francisco by air, Stevenson ignored Ke- fauver and trainee his fire on the Eisenhower Administra- tion. He said cratic tide running country this year” the Democrats who told him of his roseate outlook in the primary confessed to reporters that “I Like Ike” sentiment still was powerful in California, and that the President ap- peared to be a cinch to carry the Golden State in November. They said Vice President Nixon would “hurt” him if he is on the 56 ticket, but not enough to lose the state.

Stevenson, in a speech at the San Francisco Press and Union League Club, attacked Presi- dent Eisen*ower, trying 0 show that he was not giving America the kine of leadership that was needed in this “peril- ous stage of history.”

He recalled an 8-point speech made bv President Eisenhower on April 17

“First, he (the President) said he is unequivocally in favor of ihe supreme importance of ne individual. And | agree with him

“Second, he proclaimed the importance of spiritual values. | take it we are agreed on that.

“Third, he is unequivocally in favor of prosperity, peace, plenty. and happiness. Any- body here against that?

“Fourth, he said Government must concern itself with hu- man misfortune though of course he cast the usual Re- yublican anchor to windward by saying we must be careful not to impair the initiative or ineentive of the unfortunate.

“Fifth, he announced that one and all should cooperate for the common good. Any- body here against that?

‘Sixth, seventh and eighth, he came out boldly in favor of \oraham Lincoln, declared ‘hat America must be pre- pared to defend herself, and ¢ said we must promote free- dom and justice and peace.

“Now that is the program that the President put forth as his contribution to the na- tional debate of 1956. That was what the President said—and that was all he said.

‘And I say to you that how- ever lofty his sentiments, how- ever good his intentions, this is not the kind of leadership we require as We venture upon the perilous stage of history in the last half of the 20th century— particularly when there are lurking in the wings the Vice President esteems so highly and the old guard stage man- agers of the Republican Party.”

Stevenson charged that in the Eisenhower Administration the farmers’ income has been “chopped to pieces,” and that the farm depression is spread: ing to cities

He charged nothing was be- ins done to meet the national emergency in our schools, and that the Administration op- poses every new move to help older people

He went on to say that Pres- ident Eisenhower remains lent in the face of _ terrific tension created by the Su- preme Court's ruling against segregation in the schools

Capital News Problem Cited by Erie Sevareid

News analyst Eric Sevareid said yesterday that getting news in Washington is “infinitely harder than it should be if those who tell us all is peace, pros- perity and contentment are cor- rect.”

“I do not expect any govern- ment to conduct a searching self-examination in public; that is not the way of politicians in office,” the CBS chief Washing- ton correspondent said. “I don't expect the Government not to play favorites in the press—the favorites of course being those who find no fault with it. But I do expect the unchallenged right to point that out.”

Sevareid spoke yesterday at a luncheon of the American Book- ellers Association 56th Anniver- sary Convention and Trade Ex- hibit in the Shoreham Hotel.

“I do not expect a cessation of the subtle art of ‘managing’ the news, deliberately smother- ing out an unfavorable story, for example, by releasing a more exciting favorable story. This is not the frst Administra- tion to resort to this practice, though .i is the first to raise it to the f'ne art it is today,” he szid

Warning of the dangers of nationa' complacency, the news commentator noted that the “profoundly disturbing news” that Russian air power ex ceeds our own “has caused hardly a ripple of concern among the peop+ ind in the press.”

Sevareid said “both Govern- ment an.! most of .he big press wou'd huve us believe Heaven is at las achie ed and-it will be roses, roses all the way. | hope it will be roses all the way, but it’s not the business of the * free American press to assume it will.’

“Most people vote, and decide, on end results, not on trends,” he said. “That's pdrtly because they can’t detect the trends: one reason they can’t is that so many who can aren't troubling to /point them out often and insistently enough.”

|President Eisenhower.

And final reservations about Stevenson disap- peared when the former Illinois governor on an earlier trip to Florida criticized the Tennes- sean's absences from the Sen- ate and questioned his White House qualificationg, Kefauver aides say.

Kefauver first let fly at his opponent last Tuesday. He has continued to attack him directly nearly every day since. His Cal ifornia plans call for more of the same, only rougher, regard- less of what happens in Florida

Opinions may differ on what effect this sort of campaign will have on Kefauver'’s long-shot chances as well as Stevenson's prospects for the nomination Some even may question its propriety.

But more and more observers are reaching the conclusion that come what may. Kefauver is out to “rough up” Stevenson so badly that he may have seri- ous difficulty in winning the No
