6-A MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1968 Soys Mass Murderer Speck Could Appeal Dirksen Turned Against Fort as On Jury Ruling WASHINGTON' TAP) — Majority Leader Mi'.e Mansfield, bucking time and ftrrng opposition, says lie will decide by week's end whether to try 1o overturn the Senate vote against Abe Fortas' nomination to be chief justice. The Senate dealt Fortas and President Johnson a prestige- crushing blow Tuesday when an attempt 10 end a filibuster against the appointment fell 14 votes short. Mansfield, who is urder strong pressure to erd ;he Senate session soon because of the upcoming election, said after the vote: "I am thinking the whole picture through and trying to decide on my next move. I want t-t assess the lineup of ihe Senaie and see what the prospects and possibilities arc." j If he can't dnm up support ! the nomination will be dead, for j all intents and purposes. Fortas' foes were confident that there will be no shifts from ihe vote, which was 45 to 43 to kill the filibuster—far short of the iwo-thirds margin needed to limit debate and bnng the nomination to the f'toor. Republican Lewder Everett M. Dirksen, a key opponent of the effort to kill the filibuster, r.aid he doesn't know of a sing!;; man likely to change from his position. Despite the rebuff, President Johnson served notice he's not about 10 withdraw the nomination of Fortas to replace Chief Justice Earl Warren. "The nomination is still there," said a White House spokesmar. Sen. Robert P. Griffin, R- Mich., a leader of the anti-Fortas Republican, said h' 1 had a dozen senators lined up to sustain another filibuster if Mansfield brings up the nomination again. Sen. Strom Thurmond. R-S.C, said if Johnson fails to withdraw the nomination, "those of us who onpese it will continue to debate the matter indefinitely." Dirksen also urged Johnson to withdraw the nomination. Dirksen disclosed Tuesday why he switched f.'om a Fortas supporter to ar> opponent. He said he was displeased with a court decision regarding exclusion of jurors from murder trials when the jurors express doubts about capital punishment. Dirksen noted that 24 men, including Richard Speck, convicted of slaying eight nurses, could appeal murder convictions under The ruling in liis home state. He asked what he could say when people "alleee that I had this one chance to pro.'est and failed to do so." Judiciary Committee Chairman James 0. Eastland, D- Miss., said in a statement it was apparent . that Fortas' nomination had been defeated He called the vote on cloture a clear indication of the will of the Senate. Another Southern Democrat who opposed confirmation, Sen. John L. McClellan of Arkansas also told a reporter 1hat Tuesday's vote should mark the end of the light over the nomination. Thurmond said, "further debate wil' show mat Fortas should noi; only be defeated for Chief Jus'.ice bul should also resign from the court." On the roll call, 35 Democrats nnd 10 Republicans voted for cloture. Nineteen Democrats md 24 Republicans void m. Of the l'J solicitors not. iv\_.>nl- ed on the vote, two announced Ihey would have voted for cut- ling off debate ana four that they would have voted against. Had they voted the court would have beer 47-47. The other six who Vd not vote did not make then - positions known.
