Ball, R., Minn., said today Southern Democrats have "a new and potent tactic" that may defeat any civil rights legislation at this session of Congress. "The tactic," said Ball, "is simply for the Southerners to take the offensive wherever possible in raising the issue, thereby taking up so much time of the senate In debate that It will be impossible to find the time to fight through any of the bills they really want to stop." In a letter to constituents, Br.ll said, "It looks like a very successful tactic and one which may end any chance of passage of ami- lynch or anti-poll tax legislation." He said Sen. Richard n. Russell, D., Ga., tipped off the new strategy with his announcement that he would offer an amendment to the draft bill to let inductee* serve with men of their own race ii they want to.
