CXXXVI AUSTIN, MINN., THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 1959 Economy Bill Before Governor Legislature Says it May Save State Millions of Dollars ST. PAUL (AP) —.The Minnesota Legislature acted with unusual speed today to pass a bill its sponsors said would save the state a million dollars. There -was no dissent in either House or Senate. The bill now goes to the governor for signature. The measure, which would make certificates of indebtedness negotiable, was passed first in the Senate. There it was introduced Wednesday by Sen. John Zwach of Walnut Grove. It was approved by a standing committee this morning. It was passed in the House without having been introduced and after only a brief explanation by Rep. Fred Cina of I Aurora, the majority leader. Rules Suspended Usual rules of procedure were T * I f ^tlf >•• I suspended in both houses to make the speedy action possible.

Premier Anastas Mikoyan arrived in Detroit today at Willow Run airport without any picket incidents. His arrival coincided with a statement by President Eisenhower in Washington urging courteous treatment for the Russian and deploring demonstrations by pickets. Mikoyan stepped off .his -commercial airplane after a flight from Cleveland. Baltic national groups had pick- •ts at the airport. But officials rushed the Soviet official out a rear door of the airplane-hangar and drove from the airport by a round-about route. He made a brief address at the airport commenting that Russia's automobile industry was developed with the aid of Detroit auto experts. State police troopers lined overpasses along the Willow Run expressway to protect Mikoyan's caravan as it passed en route to the Ford Motor Co, research center in Dearborn.

Confident of Getting Backing WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate moved toward a quick first showdown in the filibuster fight today with the immediate issue narrowed to the question whether to throw the Senate rules open for revision. Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, agreed to the move and pushed it along, then announced plans to try to kill the proposal for new rules by means of a motion to table. The situation was set up by an agreement from Johnson to let the Senate take up first the proposal to adopt new rules, sponsored by forces which want tighter curbs on long talk. The plan was offered as a substitute for a compromise proposal by Johnson himself. The Democratic leader obtained unanimous consent to go into the proposal immediately, and then announced his tabling plan. Simmering Fight Against the background of the simmering fight over civil rights and integration legislation, Johnson had proposed some tightening of the rules for cutting off debate. But he had not gone nearly as far as the strong opponents of the filibuster wanted. And his plan ; would have reaffirmed the prin- iciple that the old rules, which (make debate hard to cut off, carry over. A motion to table is not debatable, and once made would cut L off further discussion.

The sponsor of record for the resolution before the Senate is Sen. Clinton P. Anderson (D-NM), Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, the new Republican leader, objected to any strategy which would force a night session. No Inconvenience Johnson told Dirksen he would not handle the affair so as to inconvenience anybody. In response to a parliamentary inquiry, Vice President Richard M. Nixon held that under the rules Anderson's motion would have'to lie over one day before it could be acted on. Johnson said, however, that he was willing to waive this rule in the interest of obtaining a prompt vote. No one objected when he asked for a unanimous consent agreement to this effect.
