Little Chance of Passing By HERBERT PLUMMEB A S H I N G T O JN March 28 A c o n c u rrent resolution has been introduced in the house by a young represen tive from Wis consin which if enacted into law would bring to capitol hill about the most sweep ing change ever encountered The author is Raymond J Can non a second termer The res olution would bar the public from the galleries of both houses of
