BY WALT SCOTT OH GOSH'. MOWWCSOTTA MU/JT FOR HIM!' W6 THOUGHT HE WAS WITH Your Civil Rights Backers Plan Strategy for Senate Row By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON <AF> — Senators trying to figure out how to smash filibusters are considering strategy that could throw the opening session of the new Senate on Jan. 3 into an uproar. Bchjnd their efforts Is a drsire to clear the way for civil rights moa- tures. They hope to deprive opponents of their most trusty weapon, the filibuster, which can be used to talk legislation to death] A leader In the move. Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn), said today Republican and Democratic senators who favor making It easier to shut off debate have been Invited to confer here Dtc. 30. Humphrey told n reporter that on« course of action under study is to move at the start of the session for the adoption of new Senate rules—a maneuver aimed at eliminating Rule 22. Under Rule 22, n halt can be balled to a, filibuster only by the votes of 64 senators, or two-thirds of the entire membership. Opponents cont*nd It ia almost impossible to „ *ppir- What.'* more, Rule 22 provides - that no debate limitation whatever •hall apply to proposals to change the rule. 1 ;—so that any move to change (t can be talked to death. Tentative opening -dny strategy outlined by Humphrey to cope with this roadblock to civil rights and Bother legislation .inovlves some fast parliamentary footwork. Here's what Humphrey expects we. Id happen, if the plan were.ntjt Into execution: ' :" ' . At tiae outset,'of the session a motion would be made to adopt 'new Senate rules; tlhe vice president, who \B Senate presiding officer, probably would rule that the mo- pafit precedents .that the Senate, because only a third of it* membership changes at one time, is a continuing V)dy and so ftlread yhas Its rules. An appeal would be taken from (he rilling of (tie vice president; only a majority vote IB necessary to overturn such a ruling and Humphrey Is hopeful that the necc.ssary vntfs could be obtained. If the vice president wcrs overruled, the effect would be to leave the Senate without any rules, Humphrey said in the case ordinary parliamentary rules would apply and any senators attempting to filibuster against the adoption of now rules no longer wcnild have the protection of Rule 22, Aside from parliamentary technicalities — and some authorities believe there, are flaws In the plan —such a maneuver would touch off a bitter fight by Southern senators who lonp have relied on filibusters fo block lair employment practices legislation and other civil rights measures. Humphrey, said any new rules proposed by the group attending the meeting probably would provide for halting a filibuster by the votes of 49 senators, or a majority, of the entire membership. He said a move to cut off debate by just a majority of those present would be "going a little too far."

Hearings on T-H Set as First Major Business of Hew House By B. 1,. LIVINGSTONE WASHINGTON W> — Hearings aimed nt redrafting of the Taft- llarlley labor law have been set as one of the first major pieces of business by the new Republican house. ' Rep. McConnell (R-Pa), due to become chairman of the House Labor Committee, said today (he whole field of labor-management relations would he reviewed by his committee at sessions tentatively set to start early in February. "From that I hope we can evolve a bill/' ho told A reporter. "If the Taft-Hartley law can be patched up and worked out — all right. If not, a whole new bill may have to be written." Although McConnell lias not taken a public position, his dissatisfaction with Taft-Hartley as the nation's basic labor law is widely recognized on Capitol Hill. He is understood to feel that Taft- Hartley is too complex, not easily understood by either labor or management, and a symbol of unnecessary controversy which the Republicans would do well to erase. The OOP platform endorsed the law, but culled for any chAnges shown by experience to be needed. The platform didn't spell them out. f Across the Capitol. Sen. Taft (R-Ohio) Is for retaining tbe law which bears his name. Any effort to bring out n wholly new law .seems certain to stir up the powerful opposition of the Ohio senator. Talt does favor changes In Taft- Hartley and already plans to in-' troduce in the Senate again most of the 28 amendments passed in 1010 but which died In a hostile House. .McConnell's views oh a labor lavi' are likely to prevail In the House Labor Committee, where he commands the respect of Southern Democrats ns well as Republicans'. "I'd like to have a simple law, 1 understandable to the man on the street and one which both labor and Industry can live with," he said. Asserting he had no dispute with Taft, McConnell said, "I can only judge by what people, say to me." "I have been given to understand Taft-Hariley can be much simplified, and I don't know if it can be amended satisfactorily or not. It's the baste principles that we are concerned with, not the word- Ing." Read Courier News Classified A.1s. New Water Supply For Tiny Island .
