Chief Wins by Closest Margin in ISO Years MONTPELIER, vt. (Ap)-it is now official that Republican Robert T. Stafford of Rutland is the governor of Vermont-by the narrowest margin in a Vermont gubernatorial election in 150 years. A SB-member joint committee of the Legislature completed a recount Monday night showing Stafford beaj Democrat Bernard J. Leddy of Burlington by 718 votes, 62,222 to 61,503. Haven't Come Close Vermont has not had a Democratic governor in 105 years/ In that time no Democrat has come as close to the governorship as did Leddy. The small margin in the gubernatorial race was the second phase of a Democratic showing in the state. Democrat William J. Meyer was elected to the U. S. House. The original margin between Stafford and Leddy was 918 votes. Actually, Stafford received only 2P2 votes more than he needed to win the governorship in the recount. The Vermont constitution requires that a governor be elector! with a majority of the ballots cast. Rejects 131 Ballots There were 123,859 general election votes counted. The recount committee rejected 131 ballots. Thus a total of 61,930 was needed for victory. Leddy demanded a legislative recount under a constitutional provision not exercised since 1894. By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Liberals looked amateurish compared with the professionalism of Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas who outmaneuvered their efforts to make it much easier to smash a filibuster. To make a long story short: When the showdown came they didn't have the votes. Johnson did. Knowing the thoroughness of Johnson, it seems safe to say he had his votes lined up beforehand and the liberals didn't. AFTER THE VOTE — Three senators after Senate action which changed the rules to make it easi,er to block filibusters. By a roll call vote, the Senate decreed that from now on two-thirds of members present and voting can throttle a filibuster. The old rule required a vote of at least 66 members or two thirds of the total membership. Left to right and the way they voted are: Sen. Clifford Case (R-NJ), for; Sen. Jacob Javits (R-NY), against, and Sen. Paul Douglas (R-lll), against. (AP Photofax). TURMOIL OVER VOTER RECORDS Judge May Get Jail Term CLAYTON, Ala.

Discriminated Against Commission agents, arriving for a court-ordered appointment to check the records for evidence that Negroes had been discriminated against, found Wallace was placing the files in custody of a hurriedly assembled Barbour County grand jury. Another grand jury reportedly was ready to be empanelled in Bullock, although the agents have a mandate ordering Wallace to open files of both counties. Wallace left the decision on whether the agents could inspect the records up to the 18 Barbour jurors. The jurors agreed to let the investigators "examine these records jointly with us," but the agents declined the offer. No Authority A commission spokesman said the agents rejected the proposal "because we have no authority to deal with the grand jury. Our authority is to deal with Judge Wallace."

ON FILIBUSTER (Tuesday, Jon. 13, J959 Liberals Strictly Amateurs Compared to Pro Johnson happened would indicate time '. — 50 of the 98 members — stop a filibuster. But Johnson, lender of the majority Democrats, grabbed the floor right from the start. This was his right, as leader. And he brat the liberals lo the punch by proposing that Rule No. 22 be changed this way: Be Stopped To let a filibuster be stopped — not by the full two-thirds vote of 06 of the !)« senators or by 50 of the !)B — but by a simple two- thirds vote of just those senators present on the floor at voting one of two things about the fight they made: Overly Optimistic 1. Either they were overly optimistic on the support they'd get from the rest of the Senate and didn't make a nose count, or— 2. They knew their chance was slim but decided to go ahead and fight anyway for the sake of the record and to get at least some concessions. Under the old Senate Rule No. 22 a filibuster could be stopped only by a two-thirds vote of all the senators, or 6(i of the 98 senators. A filibuster is a prolonged talking spree whose sole purpose is to prevent some bill or measure from coming to a vote. Such a two-thirds vote is tremendously difficult to get in the Senate, where so many members traditionally cherish the right — which any one of them might want to use someday — to block a distasteful measure. No Means In addition, the rule provided no means at all — not even that big two-thirds vote — for stopping a filibuster against a motion to change the rule. The liberals set out lo get the rule changed right at the start of this session of Congress last Wednesday. They wanted it changed to let a simple majority This may seem lots easier to get. In actual practice, it. probably wouldn't be, because on anything so important as breaking a filibuster, most of the senators would be present anyway. But it was a concession to the liberals, Southern Democrats, who have used the filibuster to block civil rights legislation, didn't like the concessions. It was more than they wanted to yield. It was less than the liberals wanted. ords in both counties and refused to surrender them to the federal government, will face a hearing in Montgomery Wednesday before U. S. Dist. Judge Frank M.

What he proposed about the rule change was enough of n compromise to win the votes it needed for adoption. From the time Johnson made his proposal, the liberals had almost impossible going. The reason: Johnson had made a concession that wouldn't antagonize the Southerners too much and would satisfy those other senators who thought Rule No. 22 ought to be softened a bit but. not too much. The result: The liberals were voted down on one attempt after another to get the rules changed to their liking, thus paving the wny for overwhelming adoption of Johnson's proposal, i There's no doubt the liberals |did a lot of homework: Research ion the history of Rule No. 22 and j the filibuster.
