Congress Closes Session WASHINGTON (AP'-The first congressional session of the Kennedy administration wound up in an angry whirlwind early today with the Senate having to accept a big money bill which the House bounced to it on a take it or leave it basis. The House passed the $1,125,-927,341 supplemental appropriation and then quickly dosed up shop at 4:20 a.m. With the House in adjournment and no chance for compromise, the Senate was forced to go along with the hill providing money for a wide variety of federal agencies. The slightest Senate amendment would have killed the measure and forced President Kennedy to call a special session to get the needed hinds. Senators minced no words in expressing anger at the House adjournment prior to final Senate action. "We have taken a shellacking and I think it’* outrageous,” protested Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana Senate Republican Leader Everett M. IMrksen of Illinois challenged his colleague-^ to “show' how deep is your conviction.” “Let’s find out whether Uniform Store Hours Adopted The Commercial Committee of the Brownwood Chamber of Commerce has established uniform shopping hours from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Shopping hours in Brownwood were adopted for the entire year except for special promotions and the holiday season.

The established shopping hours concern mainly the downtown retail outlets and in general exclude grocery stores and drug stores. Home Tells U. N. Of Nuclear Talks UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.
