Bell has said he has reached a decision on whether to prosecute Helms in con- nection with congressional testimony the former spy chief gave regarding possible CIA i-volvement in the over- throw of Chiles Allende government. CAPITOL HILL An October adjournment does not seem likely for the legislators. Senate Democratic Leader Robert C. Byrd (W. Va.) has said he feels the Senate could dispose of all pending bills ex- cept conference reports on or before Nov. 5. If energy legislation and other bills do not reach th ",floor by that date, Byrd said, he w' limit sessions to every third day and allow conferees to work without being interrupted by quorum calls and roll call votes. Byrd said he had discussed that plan with House Speaker Thomas P. (Tip) O'Neill who "seemed to think well of it,". indicating. the House may adopt a similar sche4ule. Neither chamber meets today in ob- servance of Veterans Day. The Senate takes up the energy bill. Tuesday and posslbly* the agriculture disaster pay- ments bi1L. The tax bill sent to the Senate Fri- day is vastly different from President Carter's request. The bill contains no tax Increases as Carter wanted and $40 billion over eight years in tax credits and incentives to induce con- servation and production of energy. House-Senate conferees meet'today to continue their work on the energy conservation bill. It Is the first of four non-tax bills the 17-member con- ference committee will work on while awaiting energy tax changes and wrap up, work on the President's energy program. On Tuesday, the House continues on the supplemental appropriations bill and seven bills under suspension, including matters concerning the sex- ual exploitation of minors, prisoner exchange treaties, tax treatment ex- tensions and urban mass transporta- tion revision. The appropriations bill includes money for the Clinch River nuclear breeder reactor, which Carter often has said he doesn't favor.
