And* as in the cast of Texas, there Is a radii consideration at work: certain Southern Senators, who are pretty good talkers, oppose the bills because they don't want to add four new members to the Senile who would probably vote for civil rights legislation.

On an average of 15 key votes In lie last stssion of Congress, there i r ere approximately 110 Democrats nd 10 Republicans who voted for tie Truman program. There w&5 n equal number, 50 Democrats arid 0 Republicans, who voted regular- y against Truman proposals, About 00 Democrats and »0 Republicans plit their votes. In the last election, the Republl- :ans' gain of 28 seats may be pre,timed to be at the expense of Truman Democrats.
