EXPECTED SOON Measure Likely to Get Vote Early Next Week Belief TI7ASHINGTON May 11 UP VV Having voted on the most con troversial sections of its farm re lief billthe senate took a recess to day with passage of the measure sight early next week On top of the decision Wednesday to retain the export debenture sec tion in the bill despite President Hoovers opposition tho senate yes terday refused to leave the salary of the chairman of the proposed federal farm boardto the discretion of the chief executive adopting an amendment to fix it at a year Divisions Less Apparent Altho the republican independents and democrats who lined up togeth er to defeat the administration stand on the debenture proposal provided the principal strength for the salary amendment the sharp lines of cleavage which developed in the former disagreement were not apparent yesterday and the ele ments of bitter controversy were lacking Senator Fesa of Ohio assistant republican whip whose complaint against Senator Borah and other pseudorepublicans for disregard ing President Hoovers declaration against the debenture has served to keep that dispute alive and Chair man McNary of the agriculture committee were among the admin istration supporters in the Wednes day contest who opposed the dele gat ion by congress of power to fix salaries to the president Several de benture proponents on the other hand voted to give the president that power Difference Is Emphasized The difference between the inten sity of the two issues was further emphasized by the fact that while time Wednesday vote was 47 to 44 yesterdays count was 46 to 32 The most vigorous dispute which devel oped yesterday in fact had to do with efforts to exclude dairy pro ducts Irults and vegetables from commodities affected by the bill
