Wednesday Despite Republican opposi ion Senate Democratic leaders predicted the poverty legislation vill clear their branch handily perhaps Tuesday The House plans to devote three days to the farm bill The measures managers reportedly are at work at some lastminute revisions designed to soften the opposition The biggest floor battle on the antipoverty bill is expected over the right of governors to veto projects in their states They have such a right under the present law passed in 1964 The Senate Labor Committee wrote in a provision which would eliminate the veto on three major types of projects community action neighbor hood Youths Corps and adult education Republican s e nators have pledged they will try to knock out this provision The 165billion authorization for the year ahead in the Senate measure is what Johnson asked except for million added in he Labor Committee for a spe cial program aimed at helping chronically unemployed poor adult workers with poor em ployment prospects The House in passing its ver ion of the legislation last month authorized a billion total The House battle on the farm ll centers on a wheat provision recommended by Secretary of Agriculture Orviile L Freeman Opponents say the adminis tration proposal would lead to higher bread prices a bread tax Sponsors of the bill say it would bring an increase of only seventenths of a cent in the cost of the wheat which goes into a loaf of bread Backstage talk of a compro mise on the farm measure cen ters in broad outline on a plan which would raise the price lev el at which the government could resell surplus grain thereby curbing the competition the government poses to private grain dealers The second part of the com promise would be retention in the main of the controversial wheat section
