Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1953, Winona, Minnesota Fair Tonight, Showers by Morning Chiefs at Mankato Tonight at 8, KWNO AM-FM VOLUMR 53, NO. 138 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 30, 1953 Congress May Work Another Week With The Mercury Sizzling in the 90's, Santo, shaggy 2-month-old St. Bernard owned by M. R. Heck of Worthington, Minn., sought to sample a cooling drink set out on the kitchen table Wed- nesday. After a sniff, upper left, the 30-pound pup gave the straw a try, only to find he couldn't coax it into his snout, upper right. A little nudge with a paw got the lemonade out of the glass, but onto the table, lower left, instead of down the pooch's parched throat. Disgusted, Santo settled for a sour nibble of the lemon slice, lower right.

The bills and their status: Hike in Debt Ceiling Could Hold Up Session All 13 Regular Money Bills Through House By JOE HALL WASHINGTON quickened pace on major money bills bright- ened hopes today that Congress would meet its target date and adjourn for the year by this week- end, although perhaps not by to- morrow night. Some knotty legislative problems remained, and they could causa trouble. So, too, could a White House a hike in the federal debt ceiling, now at 275 billion dollars. House leaders indicated willing- ness to take up the ing it would mean no more than a week's delay in adjournment of Congress. The attitude of Senate leaders was less clear. Several influential senators are' strongly opposed to lifting the debt ceilings, and the Senate's rules permit unlimited debate. Senate Democrats appeared to be lining up solidly against such- a move, and, while House leaders voiced confidence such a bill would pass there, even administration backers said action might delay adjournment until next week. Early today, at the end of a. 15Vi-hour sesion, the Senate voted 69-10 approval of a foreign aid budget. That sent it to conference with the House, which had voted about half a bil- lion dollars less. Money Bills Passed All 13 of the regular government money bills have passed the House and all but one of 'them have passed the Senate.-Ten have gone to President Eisenhower for signa- ture. Two, counting foreign aid, are in Senate-House conference committees.

Two money bills, both Senate- House compromises, were cleared to the President's desk yesterday. They provide for the defense establishment and 351 for Congress itself and the federal judiciary. At this stage, it appeared Con- gress would wind up by slicing about off former President Truman's budget re- quests and about off Eisenhower's revised budget.
