AUSTIN DAILY HERALD tr/~»t t*\r*rt*+'ri * ^^^ "* VOL. CXXXVI Filibuster Supporters Score Win Johnson Continues to Hold Firm Upper Hand in Bitter Fight WASHINGTON (AP) — Compromise forces guided by Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex) held a firm upper hand today in the Senate battle over making it easier to choke off filibusters. They won a lopsided 60-36 vote Friday in a first test of strength when antifilibuster forces tried to establish that each new Senate has the right to adopt its own rules without regard to prior rules. ' But senators demanding a tighter curb on filibusters than Johnson has proposed kept on fighting. Sen. Paul H. Douglas (D-1I1), who denounced Johnson's proposal as "a fake," offered a substitute that would permit filibusters to be halted by 50 votes, or a majority of all 98 senators, after 15 days.

Hearing a noise downstairs he went to investigate and was accosted in the kitchen by a man who told him not to make a sound.

Democrats generally complained his State of the Union report Friday lacked the bold approach they contend is needed to meet swiftly mounting world problems. Republicans stood firmly behind the President. Sen. John F.

Hum- p.hrey said "it appears the Senate will be required to take the initiative in the field of foreign policy proposals." Sen. Paul H. Douglas (D-Ili), in line to head the Senate-House Economic Committee, said Eisenhower "left untouched the biggest domestic problem of the nation, our four million unemployed." Will Write Ticket Emphasizing the comment of House Speaker Sam Rayburn (D- Tex) that the Democrats will look over Eisenhower's proposals "and then we'll write the ticket," party Prague and Warsaw Suggested as Sites MOSCOW (AP) — Soviet Russia proposed in notes to the Western Big Three and 24 other nations today the convocation of a German peace conference in Prague or Warsaw within two months. Along with the notes went a 25-page proposed peace treaty which would make West Berlin an unmarked free city until such time as the two Germanys are united. The proposed draft treaty was similar to that offered by former Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov five years ago, and included provisions which the Western Powers previously have rejected. Among the proposals (1) Germany be prohibited from joining any military bloc which does not include all signatory nations and (2) all foreign troops pull out of Germany within one year. Prohibit Claims Other sections would prohibit German claims to Eastern territories now occupied by Poland. The note went to all countries that participated in World War II against Hitler's forces. The Soviet notes were in reply ANOTHER CHURCH FIRE — Flames break through roof and belfry of the Sacred Heart (Catholic) Church on Chicago's southwest side Friday night.

The note of Nov. 27 had proposed that the United States, Britain and France pull their troops out of West' Berlin, leaving it an unarmed free city. In similar Western rejections, the three nations suggested that a Big Four conference be called to consider the whole German problem, including reunification. However, Tass said the Soviet draft treaty proposal was given the Western Big Three "for transmission to governments of these states and other states who took part with their armed forces in the war against Germany, as well as to the governments of the German Democratic Republic (Communist East Germany) and the Federal German Republic (West Germany.)" The West has refused repeated Soviet suggestions that it sit down with East Germany to discuss a peace treaty or reunification. The West contends that the East German regime is illegal because it does not have popular support and therefore does not deserve a p]ac* in discussions. The Tass statement went'on: "The conclusion of a peace treaty with Germany would play a positive part not only in safeguarding peace in Europe but also in solving the all-national task of the German people: the unification of Germany. "The note of the Soviet government to the governments of the U.S.A., Britain and France also replies to the notes of these governments on the Berlin question and again expresses the desire to settle the Berlin question through the states concerned." The U.S. reply to the earlier Soviet note had said Berlin should be discussed "in the wider framework of negotiations for a solution of the German problem as well as that of European security."
