Rent regulations relaxed Small firms exempt from Price controls fishing for supper militiaman Tran Yan Cay 33-year-Oid father of four. Fishes outside his Delta outpost to supplement his meager food ration. As Many As 80 per cent of South Vietnam a million plus full time military have similar hardships making enough Money to meet the rising Cost of food. A Wir Pho in Senate Job Bias measure faces stiff fight Washington a Senate opponents promised a stiff fight possibly a filibuster today against a Bill strengthening Federal enforcement of fair employment practices. The measure also extends Protection to a additional 20 million employees. Supporters expressed Confidence however that they have the votes to pass the measure even if they first have to overcome a mini filibuster. In the previous Congress a similar Bill was passed by the Senate by a 47-24 vote but died in the House. The situation is different now because last september the House passed a Bill of its own. It differs markedly from the measure before the Senate but it could open the Way for final action on a Compromise. With this in mind foes of the legislation said they plan More determined resistance to Senate passage. They have drafted a Batch of amendments to reshape the Bill even if they can to kill it. Some Southern senators May try to Hook on anti using amendments. The ban on employment discrimination was written into the 1964 civil rights act but enforcement Powers of the equal employment Opportunity commission were limited to persuasion and conciliation. The Senate Bill would empower the Leoc to enforce its findings through cease and desist orders. The House passed Bill in line with Nixon administration recommendations provides for Leoc enforcement through Federal court suits. Supporters of this approach argue that the Leoc should not be investigator prosecutor and judge. Civil rights leaders however have urged the Leoc be Given cease and desist Powers and noted that Congress has conferred similar authority on the National labor relations Board and other regulatory agencies. A chief difference Between the House and Senate Bills is that the House did not provide for broadening coverage of the present Law. The Senate Bill would end the exemption of to Millon state and local government employees and of More than four million employees of educational institutions. It also would extend coverage to employers and to labor unions with eight or More employees or members instead of those with 25 or More.

Foreign Aid Bill asks other nations to help Washington a the House today is expected to approve a $2.7-billion foreign Aid Extension Bill that Calls for other wealthy nations to share the Burden of assisting needy countries.

The Council said the exemptions would remove much of the Burden of enforcing president Nixon a wage Price controls in areas that tend not to be inflationary. For example in the rent exemptions the Council said the exemptions a will permit the manpower of the program to be concentrated on those areas that have the greatest potential for the Council said exempting Small companies from Price controls applies Only to retail firms not Small service firms such As a laundry or dry clean ing establishment a restaurant television repair service or a Yard and Garden care service Center.
