'Hey, Mom, Let's Keep 'Em AH' GOP to Open Civil Rights Fight with Anti-Lynching Bill WASHINGTON, April 10. (UP)— Republlcnu yesterday decided to open the civil rights fight in the Senate by calling up antl-lynchlng legislation. But not Immediately. The measure will not be brought up until after national defense legislation hM been acted upon, probably In two or three weeks. Senate Republicans voted to take up an antl-lynchlne bill first In preference to anti-poll tax and fair employment practices measures. Chairman Robert A Taft, R., O., .of the Senate Republican Policy Committee uid the anti-lynching bill wu picked beciuae it was considered "the easiest to get thrc/.•!».' All three measures are major points In President Truman's civil rights program which has resulted In a revolt of Southern Democrats. Any of them Is almost certain to bring on a filibuster by Southern senators. Taft expressed a "hope" that the filibuster could be broken.' He said chances tor Involking cloture "seems much better than ever before." Cloture would limit the time any Senator could debate the question. A two-thirds vote Is required to shut off debate In this manner. The Senate rarely invokes cloture.
