Congress In Homestretch Faces Big Bruising Battles WASHINGTON (UPI) The first session of the Democratic controlled 86th Congress headed into the homestretch Sunday, with its most bruising battles still to come. Major floor fights were considered a foregone conclusion on the issues of labor union reform and civil rights legislation. Congressional leaders also that the lawmakers must do something to prevent a shut- down of vital housing programs tnd the federal highway construc- tion before they can adjourn for the year. They also must complete action one more than a half-dozen mon- ey bills to finance the govern- ment in the current fiscal year These include the compromise defense appropria- tions measure and the foreign aid bill. The administration was expect- ed to make a determined effort in the Senate to restore at least part of the cut the House made in President Eisen- hower's aid request. The House- approved bill totaled 000. Congressional leaders originally hoped to adjourn their first ses- sion by the end of this month But with "must" legislation still on the docket, it was highly un- likely that they can quit before Labor Day. The leadership wants to clear the calendar of all time-consum- ing legislation this year to assure a shorter session next year when the national conventions will re- quire an early adjournment. The House will begin debate late this week or early next week on labor reform legislation. It was expected to set off the most hectic floor fight of the session. The administration has thrown its support behind a tough, bi- partisan substitute for the moder- ate bill approved by the H o u s e Labor Committee. The commit- tee's bill is weaker than the mea- sure approved last April by the Senate. The differences between the Senate bill and the measure even- tually approved by the House probably will be ironed out by a joint Senate House Conference Committee. A deadlock in the con- ference would jeopardize the chances for any measure what- ever this year. Civil rights legislation is still pending in the House and Senate judiciary committees. It was con- sidered likely that a moderate measure would come up in each house, with southern senators waging their traditional long fight against even a token bill. The highway financing issue is higli on the list of must legisla- tion. President Eisenhower has warned Congress that highway construction may grind to a halt unless Congress takes action to replenish the trust fund financing the program. The President has proposed that federal gasoline tax, which is ITurn To toga 16 Ex-Socialite Raps Fair As 'False' MOSCOW Dodd Stern, onetime American social- ite who was indicted by a federal grand jury for espionage, Sunday criticized the U. S. exhibition in Moscow as a false picture of American life. She said the aver- age American could own what it shows only by going deeply into debt.

Mi- chael DiSalle agreed to call a spe- cial session of the Legislature if a Franklin County grand jury in- vestigation here Monday turned up evidence of illegal dealings be- tween legislators and lobbyists. Agreement was reached in a Saturday conference with House Speaker James Lantz of Lancas- ter and Senate Leader Frank King of Toledo. The investigation was touched off when the hotel bill of Sen. An- thony Calabrese of Cleveland al- legedly was paid by Robert Scott, Cambridge lobbyist for the Ohio Coal Producers Association. Should the jury return indict- ments against any legislator, the leaders said they would decide whether to attemp to expell the accused from the General Assem- bly at a special session. They meanwhile adopted a "wait and see" attitude pending the investigation. Lantz and King were here for the Saturday skele- ton session of the Legislature to sign bills passed during the final days. All state senators and rep- resentatives will be back Aug. 14 for the last time, to consider any new bills, vetoes and appoint- ments by the governor. By RAYMOND LAHR SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Nelson A.

Kefaiiver Hits Steel i Price Hike WASHINGTON (UPI) Sen Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.) said Sunday there is "ample room' for both lower prices and higher wages without "undue reduction' of profits in the nation's strike- bound steel industry. Kefauver, a long-time critic of pricing practices of steel and oth er big industries, said the steel union and management were bat- tling for benefits that should go, at least in part, to consumers. Meanwhile, Federal Mediator Joseph Finnegan called a joint session between the industry and the steelworkers. Both sides will meat Monday at 2 p.m. e.d.t. in New York. Kefauver, chairman of the Sen- ate Anti-Monopoly Subcommittee, said after-tax profits for 14 companies have jumped 145 per cent over last year. The industry leader, U. S. Steel Corp., in- creased its net 88 per cent over 1958, he said. "I believe there is ample room, without undue reduction in profits for a price reduction, together with a small increase in Kefauver said. "Preferably, the wage increase would be in the form of ,n in- crease in pensions, which would give greater time to enjoy life to the older workers, and greater opportunity to the younger ones." Kefauver's remarks were made in a weekly television broadcast for Tennessee stations. Describing the steel strike as the most serious of the nation's economic problems, Kefauver said that lack of competition is the root of the problem. "Our public policy toward in- dustry in the past has been based on the theory of he said. "If any firm in a competi- tive industry makes an improve- ment which reduces costs, it is assumed it will reduce its price accordingly."

But Ribicoff said he sought no commitments. The Connecticut governor de- nied that Kennedy was "too far ahead" and said that no candidate can be too far in front when he is going good. Ribicoff expressed the belief that Democratic governors will have the controlling voice at the convention but that the nominee will come from the Senate.

Later, the pit widened to 45 feet across and 35 feet deep It was being shored so rescue operations could begin. Rescue crews said a rush of water from mains broken by the collapse of tons of dirt could have carried Reiss' body deep under the area's labyrinth of sewers and pipes. The ruptured water mains and lines posed a threat to 100 families in the area for four hours Saturday night and early Sunday until city and utility company em- ployes shut off the flows of water and gas. Several hundred persons were evacuated from their homes dur- ing the emergency and police cautioned against striking match- es because of the threat of leaking gas at the scene.

Capeliart, who is generally re- garded as a member of the Carry's conservative wing, agreed with Sen. Jacob K.
