State Representative Jlmlc Scott, 35, was booked on a technical charge of assault with intent to kill after he pumped a bullet into 64-year-old State Senator Tom Anglin in the .senate chamber yesterday, fired n second shot that went wild and then i fled, only to be captured and dis- armed in thc senate washroom. Both men arc from Holdenvllle. The prisoner told police the shoot- ing stemmed from a recent divorce Scott obtained from his former wife in Holdenvllle and her subsequent move to enforce a property settle- ment. Anglin's law firm represent- ed the woman. Scott insisted he fired only after Anglin threatened to kill him and started to draw a gun. Anglin, prominent in state politics for more than 30 years and actinc governor ot Oklahoma on several occasions, suffered a deep flesh wound in his left hip but physicians at University hospital said his con- dition was not serious. The wounded man denied he had threatened Scott or was even aware of any animosity between them. At Holdcnville, Scott's former wife, who has taken back her maiden name of Irene Tucker, likewise de- clared she was unaware of any an- tagonism between the two men. She said she intended to come to Okla- homa City to "stick by" Scott be- cause she still loved him and had never desired the divorce.

D.-W-Hls Emi-ithe cuts arc five cents or Sl.OOO.t-00, cratic administration Republican Congress budget split widened toda> with accusations on Capitol hill that cabinet officers are trying .to em- barrass thc House appropriations committee. Thc charge was made by Repre- sentative Karl Stefan (R.-Neb.) chairman of thc subcommittee which earlier this week recommend- ed a 23 per cent cut in the 194? budget of the State, Commerce anc Justice departments. It was echoed by Representative John Taber N chairman of the full com- m'ittec which upheld Stefan's group Stefan and Taber lashed out at the departments after Secretary of State George Marshall and Secre- tary of Commerce A. Avcrell Har- riman criticized the committee's ac- tion in separate statements yester- day Previously Secretary of the Interior J. A. Krug and Secretary of Labor Lewis Schwellenbach had complained of economy-ax blows dealt their departments. Bombardment Referring to Marshall's claim that the committee action posed serious problems for the State department and to Harrim.an's assertion that it would "return us to thc dark ages of business knowledge." Stefan told reporters: It makes no difference whether Restriction On Bargaining Fails to Pass Amendments Also Would Eliminate Union Health Funds Washington The Senata voted today a ban on union con- trolled health and welfare funds and thc involuntary checkoff on. dues. The vote was 48 to 40. Adoption of the ban as an amend- ment to pending general labor legis- lation was a victory for Senator Robert Taft (R.-Ohlo) after a sharp reversal yesterday tvhcn tha Senate killed, 44 to 43, a Taft- backed proposal to forbid industry- wide bargaining. Today's amendment also outlaws extortion and attempts by unions to "shake down" employers, nans Union Health Funds It prohibits all health and wel- fare funds which are administered solely by unions. Thc Hartley bill already passed by the house has a similar provision. The Senate amendment, sponsor- ed by Senators Ball (R.-Minn.l, Bvrd' Smith and George permits wel- fare funds in cases where "cnipioy- ers and employes arc equally rep- resented" in the handlins of them, together with "such neutral per- sons" as both sides may agree upon. Another Amendment Another pending amendment, ton- ed down by Its sponsors, would per- mit employers to sue unions for damages resulting from Junsdic- tional strikes and secondary boy- cotts. Taft has abandoned his ilght to let private employers seek in- junctions against these practices. The successful fight against bargaining curb was led yesterday by two of Toffs fellow Republicans. Senators Ives (N.Y.) and Morss Morse hailed the decision AS "great victory." He added: think we have a good chance to defeat them." But Senator Pepper al- so opposed to the provisions, pre- dicted they will be adopted, also indicated he expects thc amend- ments to be written into the bis omnibus bill. The roll call vote by which the Senate rejected the amendment to the pending labor bill designed to curb industry-wide bargaining. In- 01 Minnesota For: Joseph Ba'.L Against: Edward J. Thye.
