THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1949 Senators Expect Filibusters in'50 Civil Rights Fight Certain to Bring More Talkathons WASHINGTON, Oct. 27. (/P)—The Senate seems likely to face an endurance contest early In its next session as a result of President Truman's new call for actfon on civil rights legislation. With the President mnking It plain he intends to renew his demand lor passage of such laws, aides of southern Democratic senators were reported already work- Ing on filibuster material. Senator Myers of Pennsylvania, the assistant Democratic leader, •inceded frankly that a filibuster T" in prospect when leaders try to "II up anti-poll tax, nntt-lynching and anti-Job discrimination bills. Myers told a Philadelphia audience yesterday he doesn't think a new Senate riile will operate to cut olf the continuous talk with which Dixie senators in the past have prevented action on any civil rights proposal. The Senate now has In effect a rule under which 64 of the 9C senators must be present arid vote "yes" to adopt a petition to close debate. If only 63. voted "yes." the proposal would lose. That's what. the Southerners count on in their j preparations for a filibuster. I Senator Olin D. Johnston (D-SG) already has served notice that he will talk until he drops to prevent passage of any of the bills on the civil rights program. Senator Long <D-La) hns Indicated he also plans to unllmber hts vocal chords in this connection. President Truman laid the background in a New York City speech this week for an enlarged appeal to Congress to act. on the r'vil rights t)uestlon. In the next session, the adminis- . tration Is 'expected to center its . efforts on attempts to enact anti- lynchlng and anti-poll tax bills into law. A Fair Employment Practices Commission measure is pending on f e Senate's calendar, but Senator efauver (D-Tenn) told reporters I ne doesn't think It ever will be' passed. I Kefauvcr said this bill is opposed not only by Southern Democrats but by Northern members of both parties who contend It would put the government In a position totcll employers all over the country whom they should hire and fire. The Tennessee senator said he thinks the Senate might accept an anti-poll tax bill but believes the anti-poll tax bill but believes the le the lynching problem. BI/YTHEVTLLE (ARK.)

Although the chemical history of orlon is not unlike that of nylon, the company explained, orlon is Intended chiefly for use in different fields.

Company spokesmen said speculation that, orlon might replace nylon was "ridiculous." "The two may In time be competitive in certain areas," they said, "but there is na likelihood that. nylon will got out of business." " Roaming Youths Meet Waterloo in Springfield, Mo.
