And Republican leaders predicted confidently that if the chief ex- ecutive vetoes the big measure curb- Ing union activities, Congress will override his decision. That takes a two to one majority. Here is the picture: The Senate oproved the bill late yesterday by a vote of 54 to 17, com- pleting congressional action. That's a three to one than the G.O.P. leadership expects to muster on a veto test, if one comes. The House slapped Its okay on the bill cai-lcr this week. 320 to 79, or four to one. So proponents then; arc not, worried. Senator Robert Taft chair- man ol' the Senate's Republican policy and labor committees, told a reporter he was -pleased" by the Senate vote and still is confident n, veto can be overcome, if necessary. But he forecast that the margin would be somol.hlng clo.ser to tho 108 to 24 vote by which tho Senate i passed its original bill. The com- l promise measure it approved yestcr- iday is a composite of separate bills passed by the House and Senate.

The bill goes far beyond the labor legislation program recom- mended by Mr. Truman in his state of the union message to Congress last January.

Schultz. owner of the Hot Fish shop, lo- cated two miles south of here on highways 14 and 35. dived into his lather's restaurant tavern about a. m. His charred body was pulled from the wreckage of plane and burned one-story build- ing about a. m., after the La. Crosse and town or Shelby fire de- partments had failed In their at- tempt to save the building. The building burst into names when the plane, rented about 20 minutes before from the Santa. Reed air service. La Crosse, crashed Into the front door. Witnesses said that Schulta was flying at tree-top level, when the plane suddenly dipped down, slipped between high and slammed Into lite frame struc- ture. Apparently casoline spilled over the building, for it burst into immediately. Schultz's uncle, a bartender at tavern, said that he was awakened from his sleep by the crash and found himself "a ball of fire." He stumbled out the back door and managed, to extinguish the fire be- fore witnesses to the fatal crash came to the rescue. Several boys In the vicinity said they heard the engine of the plane cut out and then start again just before the plane hit the restaurant head-on. 35 From Northwest Flying to Scandinavia resi- dents of this area, ranging in from tibc nionths to 31 years old and many of them taking their first airplane ride, will take o3 from New York Tuesday on an American air- lines overseas plane for Scandi- navia.
