COtlRTBR NEWS PAGE ELKVEH Southern Democrats Hold Unproportioned Power in Congress By JAMES MARLOW AP News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP). — Southern Democrats have a power in Congress out of all proportion to their numbers. against him, it would take a sturdy fight in the full Senate to get him confirmed. Here are the nine Senate committees headed by' Southern Democrats, with their states and years ol service In parentheses: George iGa-34), Foreign Rela. lions; Russell (Ga-24).

Ways and by seniority, chairmen get their Means; Smith (Va-25). Rules; One of them — Rep. Roberts of Alabama — recently reminded the country that Southern Democrats are chairmen of a majority of Congress' standing committees. He said "we are in a position to do something about" the "manifesto" signed by over 100 Southern Democrats against the Supreme Court's ban on racial segregation in public _ what Roberts meant: "Congress has 531 members and only 121 of them — or 22 per cent- are Democrats from the 11 Southern states. But they hold 60 per cent of the committee chairmanships. They also hold the top party posts — Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn and Senate leader Lyndon B Johnson, both Texans. schools. This is is by seniority jobs by survival. A new member st?rls at t'-e foot of the committee ladder and moves up to chairman when he outlasts all those who were before him. Big Advantage This does not mean that many committee chairmen aren't able men. Some of the most respected members of Congress are from the South. In the one-party South, where Republicans are . a minor voice, Democrats who once get elected to Congress have a big advantage in political longevity over those from the two-party states. The Senate has 96 members, with 22 of them Southern Democrats. Nine of the Senate's 15 standing committees are. headed by Southern Democrats. The House with 435 members, has 69 Southern Democrats. They head 12 of the 19 regular committees. There are seven Southern Republicans in the House. The committees headed by Southerners are almost all imporatnt ones. For example: Sen. Eastland of Mississippi Is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Eastland is a leading foe of the Supreme Court's ruling against Segregation. Five of the eight Democrats on the committee, which also has seven- Republicans, are Southern Democrats. Must Face Committee It's this group which considers proposed constitutional amendments and the appointment of federal judges. Anyone named by the President to fill a Supreme Court vacancy must face this committee. If the committee recommended Richards (SC-23). Foreign Affairs; Cooley. (NC-21), Agriculture; Barden (NC-2U.
