They're all terms used in tlie Senate and nre some of the thhiKs which cause lite lo be loss than simple for the lawmakers. In the FKPC bill, now awaiting *^fce Senate action, there's a pood ej»/»ple of how molioti-mensure- clolure complicate things for the senators. Bill In f'rralc llourd This bill (o crcale a five-mini ward, called Hie Kali- Employment Practices Commission, would do this " it became law: 1. Make it unlawful for an employer to refuse In hire a job-seeker necause of his color, religion or race And— 2. Give the PEPC, meaning a government, agency, power to compel an employer to stop discriminating In hiring workers. The southern Democrats don't »'ant this bill passed. To slop tlic rest of the Senate from approving, they're willing, singly and in relays! In talk themselves into exhaustion' with a filibuster. ; So lone as tins filibuster, or marathon talk, continues It can block all Senate action on the FKPC and on all other Senate work. too. Then—and this is I lie aim of the . Iilibustercrs—In order to gel on will, 'he rest of their, work the othc' bring up the hill. >As soon us the motion Is approved, then the southerners start, their filibuster all over again but this lime against the bill it-self. The purpose: now it's to prevent the Senate from voting on Ihe bill. And this filibuster against the bill can't be stopped unless once more two-thirds, or 64, of the senators vole cloture. if t), c Senate approves the second cloture. thai ends Ihe filibuster on the FKPC. Then, when the regular debate is over, Hit- Senale votes on the FKPC bill. On the bill Itself, only a simple majority of those present is necessary. , abandon (he FEPC democrats are in „ Mock the work of Ihe resl of the Senate? United Nations To Sue U. S.

It « can be done am' time two- thirds of the total numorr of scn- ators-fM of the 96—want lo vote for clolure. : H you read thai Jn a hurrv, tt sounds easy. It isn't. In Ihe first place, few senators relish voting for clotiirc. Some day they may want to filibuster on something. They don't wnnt cloture used on them. In the second place, (lint vote of m out of n<> is no cinch'to get. For example: A simple majority vote of Just those present at voting time is all that is needed when the Senntc votes nn a bill. If only 7fl scnalors were on [he floor at. voting time and 36 voted for and 34 against, the bill would pass. 61 Must Vole •But if a nite on c|oture comes up nnd only the same 7(1 senators are on Ihe floor and 36 vote for cloture. 34 against, there's no cloture. There can't be any clotnrc unless M Jfc'ilrip total number of 9G sctia- tnl^u-liether or not all !)fj nre on the flonr. vote for cloture. So cloture Is much harder to eel. than a simple majority vole on a hill. That's not all. f" Ihe Senate there's a difference between a "motion" and a "measure." A "measure" Is simply a hill like the FKPC bill. And the measure and motion eo like this: Before the Senate can consiiter a hill, some senator has to make a motion to bring up the bill for consideration. If a simple majority of those present vole approval of the motion, then the Senate can consider the bill, Then, after debate, Ihe Senate can vote on the bill itself. Tnke Ihe FKPC Rill But. until a motion to tiring up a hill is approved, there can be neither consideration nor action on the bill. And this is where life for the senators gets difficult. Take the FEPC bill again: The motion Is mane to brine up the FEPC bill. lniniDdr>'-ly~ the southerners begin their filibuster, not on the bill it.self. but on tlic motion to bring It up. The purpose- to prevent Ihe Senate from even voting on the motion to bring up lire bill. If, finally, the rps t of the senators vote cloture on the filibuster then vote on the motion to no legal authority the u. N. had to BO to court. Jurt b 'e Goodman disagreed: "The interests of the United States are served when the United Nation's Interests a re protected. The coin-Is of the United States afford a mos t appropriate forum for accomplishing such settlement." Oldest Gray Veteran Dies At 108 Years HIGGINSVILLE. J,fo.. May S.
