The senate quickly approved a one-month extension of the pres- ent law which expires next Sun- day. The house passed it yester- day. Both acted by voice vote. The bill may reach Mr. Truman on his southern tour tomorrow. No attempt was made in the senate to plug a loophole which it debated yesterday. This per- mits unlimited rent charges when a lease signed under the present law is cancelled. If the senate had made any change in the bill, the measure would have been de- layed until the house could agree. But this Senator Myers (D-Pa) dubbed knock- ed out in the senate's new 14- month rent control proposal which it passed yesterday and sent to the house. This bill simply would roll back any such extra increases. The house will go to work on this longer-term rent bill next month. The whole purpose of the 30-day emergency is to give congress time on controls to replace the present law for a year or more. Senator Taft (R-Ohio) told the senate today he had assurance of the house banking committee that it will give prompt attention to the senate's rent bill.
