Reapportionment bill goes on to assembly WASHINGTO.M lUPI) — The Senate removed a key bai-rier to passage of its voting rights bill today by defeating a liberal backed amendment to outlaw state and local poll taxes. The vote was 49-45. The outlook for eai'ly Senate action on the bill also was improved when Southern senators agreed that they would permit limitation of debate on an amendment-by- amendment basis. Rejection of the anti-poll tax amendment sponsored by 39 senators but opposed by both Democratic and Republican floor leaders came as no surprise. But Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and other liberals backing the ban said they felt their fight had strengthened the government's court position against poll taxes. Southern senators met today and decided tliat wliUe they would not consent to over-all debate limitation, they would not object to leadership proposals to restrict debate on each amendment. Senate Democratic Leader tax proposal two hours on other amendments and six hours of final talk on the bill.

PEARSON United Press International S.'VCRAMENTO (UPl) — The Califoi-nia state senate's historic bill to shift legislative control to the city dweller today reached the Assembly -where swift and thorough action was promised. The Senate, voicing anger and anguish, bowed to the U.S. Su- |)reme Court as tlie "highest authority in the land" and passed tlie reapportionment bill 24-13 in a solemn session Monday. Gov. Edmund G. Brown today gave his blessing. "I still say it's a good bill," Brown said at his news conference. But the governor made clear that he did not like a provision requiring that senators run al- large in five urban counties. Originally, the bill requii-ed ihat 12 senators run at large in Los Angeles also, but when it passed on a 24-13 vote it contained an amendment dividing Los Angeles into 12 districts. Brown said he wondered how the courts could "justify' at large elections in some coun ties but not in others. It calls for transformation of the Senate's geography - based districts into population - based districts — a sharp departure from the longtime control of one house of the legislature by rural voters and the north state. Instead, city dwellers of Southern California would control the 40 - member Senate as they now do the Assembly. Senators in the 10 soutliernmost counties woidd increase from 10 to 21. Assemblyman Don A. Allen Sr., D - L 0 s Angeles, whose Elections and Reapportionment Committee will get the bill, said, "We have cleared our decks for action. We will turn our immediate attention to it." He said he planned a series of hearings and there were bound to be" proposals to amend it. Allen said he hoped his coiTimittoe would complete action and send it to tlie. assembly floor within a few weeks. Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, D-Inglewood, said he had heard "rumblings of discontent" about the bill but would "talk to members of the Assembly individually" before discussing the probability of amendment. Takes 40 Minutes The Senate passed the bill in a 40 - minute session described as "a wake" by Sen. Stephen I P. Teale. D-West Point, chairman of the Senate Reapportionment Committee and chief au thor of the bill. Legislature asked again to abolish death penalty By DE VAN L. SHUMWAY United Press International SACRAMENTO, Calif. (UPl) —The California Legislature was asked today to abolish the death penalty. But it was an appeal that the lawmakers, concerned w i t h state Senate reapportionment and money problems, seemed unlikely to heed. Assemblyman Lester A. Uc- Millan, a Los Angeles Democrat, takes his bi-annual fight to close San Quentin's famed gas chamber before a session of the Assembly Criminal Procedures Committee tonight. He conceded in advance that his chances of success weren't good, even with an expected boost from Gov. Edmund G. Brown, long a foe of capital punishment. At a press conference today.

"No matter what hap-pral court actions nullifying nialically commuted tu life im- lasteful," Teale asked liis col-j leagues to pass the bill in compliance with a Los Angeles Fedon tlie U,S. Supreme Court's "one man, one vole" rule. "I am just as unliappy about this bill as you are," he said. "We're faced with a court order. We are obliged to make a bona fide effort to produce as good a bill as we can," the mountain doctor said. The bill carves Los Angeles County into 12 districts, each with a senator. It provides for two senators rurming at large in each of five counties: San Francisco, Santa Clara, .\lame- da. Orange and San Diego. It has eight single - senator counties. The remaining 44 counties are grouped into 10 disti-icts ranging from two county districts to a 14-counly district along tlie SieiTa. The 40 senators would serve four year terms. District Disparity Down Teale told tlie Senate the largest district would contain 2.3 times as many people as the smallest, compared to 422 - 1 at present. He said although districts were not completely equal in population, he thought tlie courts would consider the Senate's wish to comply witli the state constitution by heedmg county hnes. Senator after senator rose to "make il clear to the people of this state" that they disliked what they had to do, and that, even wliiie passing the bill, they were fighting for a federal constitutional amendment to let voters of a state choose their legislative makeup. pens, capital punishment will: (.unvietions.
