>"RiDAY, MAT 14,1948 BLtTHBVILLI Civil Rights Fight Averted hi Senate '- Dixie Educational Compact to Be Sent Back to Committee WASHINGTON, May 14. (UP) — The Senate yesterday averted an Immediate showdown fight over civil rights by sending back to committee a Southern educational compact. The senate adopted a recommit- tal motion by Sen. Wayne Morse, R., Ore. If it had lost, Morse intended to try to tack on the bill President Truman's entire civil rights program. The vole was 38 to 37. Despite Morse's threat, a bloc of Soutlani Senators voted against recommittal. They did so in hop* that the Republican leadership would persuade Morse not to bring up the civil rights controversy at this time. The Dixie Democrats agreea ' i oppose the Morse motion at an informal meeting earlier. Senate GOP leaders already have picked an anti-lynchlng bill for the f vduwn on civil rights. They plan M'ip.g it to the Senate floor as i as the military manpower bill is out of the way. Botli SK!CS agreed that the re- committal vote killed the education compact bill, at least for this session. The measure would have given Congressional approval to a compact by 15 Southern stales to ]oln together to finance regional school for negroes. College May Suffer Mcharry Medical College for Negroes at Nashville. Tenn,, would have been the Ilrsl school to benefit under the compact. The Southern bloc said they believed Ihe Senate would have approved the bill if a "vote on Its I merits" could have been reached! without bringing in the controversy over civil rights. They were willing to accept a mild anti-segregation amendment. Bui they stood pat against stronger- ones introduced by Morse and Sen. Irving M. Ives, R., N. Y. Sen Spcssard L. Holland, D., Pla., said failure of congress to approve the compact also would "kilt" Meharry College. Morse and other opponents of the bill contended Congressional approval was not necessary on the iryind that public education is a •j!at matter. The vote cut across party lines.
