Early House Vote Likely Rights Bill WASHINGTON (AP) - House leaders have worked out an agreement that should bring passage of the civil rights bill next week—and may mean Republicans will get the two-week convention recess they have demanded. After a series of meetings Wednesday, Rules Committee Chairman Howard W. Smith, D-Va., consented to call mittee meeting Tuesday to clear the way for,,8ouse action on the bill. f . •' j!mithj,-a/iSlhfag foe of the civ- 11'1-igHs measure, said lie called the meeting only because "a majority of the members of the committee will, under the rules of the House, convene the com- mittee unless the chairman does so." Smith said he expected the committee to hold a hearing on j the Senate changes in the bill | and act on it all in the same day. LBJ Names New Army Sfatf Chief WASHINGTON (AP)-Passijig over 43 senior generals, President Johnson has named Lt. Gen. Harold K. Johnson, a veteran of the Bataan death march and of battles with the Red Chinese in Korea, as the Army's new chief of staff. As the vice chief of staff, the President picked Lt. Gen. Creighton W. Abrams, 49, who served with Gen. George Pat- ton's 4th Armored Division in World War II. Abrams also was well down the seniority list—34fh among the lieutenant generals. The shifts in the Army command came about because the present chief of staff, Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, is being promoted to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing Gen. Maxwell E>. Taylor, named ambassador to South Viet Nam. Dreams Of New Spans Now Rea/ify Don't laugh at people who dream of bridges — their dreams come true. Shortly after World War I an Army nurse returned from overseas duty to her home in Ope- lousas.Mrs. A. A.(Susue) Anding, now deceased, urged state leaders to consider building a bridge over the Atchafalaya riv- er and swamps to shorten the trip from Opelousas to Baton Rouge. Undaunted by refusals of highway leaders, she went to see the late Gov. John M. Parker. "It would break the federal treasury," Governor Parker told the lady from Opelousas. She also visioned a bridge across the Sabine River at Deweyville, Tex. Today both bridges are a reality. Nearly 25 years ago City Councilman Isreal LaFleur started plugging for a South Lake Charles bridge across the Calcasieu River. He even suggested a tunnel to help make the South crossing i the event the bridge idea fizzled. Tomorrow the bridge will be dedicated. LaFleur will help cut the ribbon. When the Deweyville bridge was formally opened years ago, Mrs. Anding was nvited to cut the ribbon. Farm Produce Use Urged For institutions ANGOLA (AP) - W. If. Kil- Patrick, new chairman of the State Board of Institutions, said here Wednesday Gov. John Mc- Keifhen plans to encourage the use of prison-produced farm goods at other stale institutions and hospitals as an economy move. Kilpalrick and other members of the recently re-o r g a nized board of institutions made an inspection tour of the penitentiary farming operations Wednesday at the height of the vegetable canning season. Generally, they expressed enthusiasm for the distribution plans for produce from approximately fiOO acres of vegetables now being harvested at the prison. Prison officials estimated the plans could result in a savings of up (o $200.000 in the food bills for such institutions and hospitals. , The plan has been trittf by I other administrations, but in the I past, it. was designed to reap I profit for Inn prison canning operation.

Jules Mollere, Metairte, put. off today his plan to call a .Senate floor vote on his bill to redistrict the present. 39 Senate seats. Mollere held off, he said, because two senators expected to vole for the measure were absent. They were Sens. Laurancc Eustis and Adrian Duplanlier, both of New Orleans. Instead, Mollere said, he planned to call for a floor vote on his bill Monday when the Senate returns from the weekend. At that lime, the Senate must, face a decision whether to redraw its districts now on equal population lines or gamble on the federal courts doing the job later. Meanwhile, a constitutional bill by Sen. Michael O'Keefe, New Orleans, to redistrict the Senate under a 41-seal plan remained in the Senate Judiciary C Committee. If the legislature should fall back on the O'Keefe plan, a public vote would be required in November. That would take more time. A taxpayers suit is pending in federal court to force Senate redistricting. And the U. S. Supreme Court has reaffirmed its ruling that, both chambers of stale legislatures must be apportioned on a one man-one vote basis. Mollere warned the S e n a t. e Wednesday, when he gave notice he would call off the calen- j dar his redisfricting bill, that | unless it acts the federal courts ; will ram redistricting down its throal. Thrro have been warnings In I committee hearings that without action now the legislature I will Itavn to return later and j do the job in a special session. Sen. Mollere told the Senate bis Senate redistricting bill would effect four districts. These are the eighth and ninth wards in New Orleans, East Raton Rouge and Caddo parishes, and Mnllere's district, made up of Jefferson, St. Charles and St. John the Baptist, parishes. He said it also would throw Sen. Olaf Fink, New Orleans, into an election with Sen. Charles Dieschmann, New Orleans, for one seat. Their two districts would be combined into Orleans' eighth and ninth wards would be split into separate Senate districts.
