wholesale bread bakeries were
shut down today for the fourth

WASHINGTON, May 13. UP)
Republican leaders said Thurs
day they will carry on their fight
to trim federal spending despite
the licking they took on the first
major money bill passed by the
Senate.
A measure appropriating $3,
113,068,503 to finance the Treas
ury and Post Office Departments
in the fiscal year starting July 1
was passed by the Senate
Wednesday.
Final approval was given by
voice vote after various Republican-backed
maneuvers to force
a 5 percent cut in the total were
defeated.
As passed bv the Senate, the
bill carries $40,250,600 more than
the House voted. If the House re
fuses to accept the increase, ef
forts will be made by conferees
from the two branches to work
out a compromise.
Senator Bridges (R.-N. H.)
told reporters there will be no
let-up in the reduction campaign
despite the setback.
He promised that "every sena
tor is going to be on record a
great many times on how he
stands on the issue of economy
before this session Is over." He
called the Post Office-Treasury
Bill "the most difficult to cut" of
all appropriations and predicted
i
better luck on others to come. !
The Treasury-Post Office Meas-1
ure was the first regular appro
priation bill passed by the Sen
ate in this session of Congress.
The House has passed all the
regular money bills lor the
coming fiscal year. ;
