There was no immediate indication if Nixon would sign the measure which also authorizes $1 billion to fight pollution Over the next three years and provides new Federal muscle against a variety of private and Public polluters. But before the Bill left the Senate there was discussion of a letter from Secretary of health Elliot l.

The Secretary will be responsible for deciding if the 1975 deadline will be extended. Sen. Thomas f.

Washington a Senate sources say the Nixon administration knows its welfare Reform plan is dead for this session of Congress but still is insisting on a Senate vote to test sentiment for the measure. This was the word from those attending a closed Senate meeting Friday at which leaders attempted to Settle some of the controversies which have tied the upper House in knots in the closing Days of the session. Backers of president Nixon a welfare Reform proposal the family assistance plan finally succeeded in getting it before the Senate As an amendment to a Bill raising social Security benefits. Through a parliamentary Man Euver the welfare plan displaced a measures also tied to the social Security proposal limiting shoe and textile imports. But there still is no indication the social Security hikes or the welfare plan will come to a vote before the 91st Congress expires Jan. 3. It was Learned the closed Senate session was told that even if the welfare plan were adopted it would be a meaningless gesture because the social Security Bill cannot be passed in the time remaining.

Mills d-ark., chairman of the House ways and Means committee that he would not cons Der the catch All social Security Bill with the amendments on foreign Trade welfare and numerous other matters even if it were to Clear the Senate. But there Are indications Senate leaders Are not about to Cut off debate on social Security and welfare.
