FOUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, tRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, JULY 13, 1963. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of parly politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs, Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher The Dirksen Amendment Senate Republican Loader Everett M. Pirk- scn, before reentcring Walter Reed Hospital on fnlv S—for a recurrence o! .stomach di>lre.vs —said lie hopes to prv out of the Senate ju- diciarv Committee shorllv his resolution lor a constitutional amendment on lejji.slatixc reapportionment. The key figure in the suhcom- mitcc struggle is Sen. Jacob favils (\\-'\ V\ who has been favoring the Dirksen Anviul- menl \vho is being pressured bv his liberal friends. "List me as doubtful on this.' (axils said as the vole neared. The amendment sponsored bv Dirksen \\onld permit the voters in each state to detcipiine whether one house of their legislature should he elected on other than a population basis. The constitutional change would in part compensate for the blow to unequal apportionment in state legislatures struck bv decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court in a ui'oup ol appealed cases on June 15. 196). The Court's central holding \vas that the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause "requires that the seats in both houses ol a bicameral state legislature must be apportioned on a population basis." A Dirksen attempt at a "romedv" bv statute rather than bv amending the constitution brought on a month- long filibuster bv Senate liberals last year and vent down to defeat. The Supreme Court held also that "in.ilhc- matieal exactness ol precision in can inn out legislative, districts might be impossible, hut that apportionment must be "based substantially on population." The "so-called federal analogy" was ruled "inapplicable as a MIS- taining precedent" for the states. Even a icl- erendum upholding apportionment other than by population was ruled out because a "citizen's constitutional rights ccan hardly be infringed upon because a majorilv ol the people choose to do so." As a result of the Courts ruliims last lime. 38 states have felt the stin^ of reapportion- r:,ent rulings. Nebraska has a unicameral s'ate legislature. Alaska and New Hamshire reapportioned on their own. Reapportionmcnt has been acconmipiisl'ed according to the Council of State Governments, ir 15 states. Hovever, in at least lour ol these states the new seating plans are under further court challenge. The Dirksen Amendment resolution is faced with a possible filibuster when and il it does reach the Senate floor. Dirksen on |ulv fi expressed confidence that "we'll have (lie \otes for passage when the time comes." Failure of the Dirksen Amendment would eventually mean full implementation of the Court's "one man, one vote" concept. Democrats would probablv benefit more than Re- j'ubli'cans in northern states'. Republicans would have the edge in border and southwestern states. .Malanportionment of the Arizona. Marv- Jand and New Mexico legislatures has kept the Democrats in power despile an upsurge of Republican strength in suburban districts. But Hie-hard M. Scammon, former director ol the Census Bureau, has observed that "The '.suburban vole' in America, while still more Republican than that of the whole country, sterns to be tending more and more toward the national average—because the national average is becoming more and more suburban."

Back home in Russia they've had to put more monev into Irving to build up agriculture to the point where it can lecfl the Soviet people. They've had to jestore at least an imitation of the prolit motive in industry in order to get anybody to work. What have they got to spare for anything more than defense of their own home power base? "True, enough, the Viet COIIL' is giving the United States trouble now that the monsoons are turning South Viet Nam to gumbo. But there were no rains to protect Ben Btlh in Algiers. The new Algerian dictator, Colonel Boumedieene, may be no great friend of the west, but lie's booted out the Afro-Asian summiteers, he's thrown a rnonkev wrench into the commie youth festival \\hich was to have been held in Algiers at the end of July and he's indicated that he doesn't want to sfe his country run for the benefit of either Russia or China. This must seem downright ungrateful to Brezhnev and Kosygin; after all," Russia once committed a lot of money to build a steel plant in Algiers. As for the Red Chinese, they have counted on the Algerian Atro- Asian summit meeting to brine most ol Africa into their orbit. But now the Chinese find the prime minister of little Malawi denouncing them for trying to corrupt the Africans .
