PAGE FOUR THE GETTYSBURG TIMES, WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1968 DIRKSEN RAPS CIVIL RIGHTS FAIR HOUSING By JOHN CHAOWICK WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate has its first skirmish today over President Johnson's new civil rights bill, with its fair housing section apparently already doomed. What sounded like a fatal blow to a provision banning racial or religious discrimination in the sale or rental of all housing was struck by Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen ol Illinois. He called this part of the bill "absolutely unconstitutional" and said that, if this is retained, he could not support any move to break a filibuster against the legislation. OPPOSE DEADLINE "If you can tell me what interstate commerce is involved in selling or renting a house fixed to the soil, or where there is federal jurisdiction, I'll go out and eat the chimney off the house," Dirksen said.

Both Dirksen and Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said they would oppose any move to fix a deadline for action on the bill by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, reserved the right to make such a move when the bill was introduced in the Senate last Thursday. DEAD END In the past the Judiciary Committee, with Sen.

James 0. Eastland, as chairman, has been a dead end for civil rights bills in the absence of instructions by the Senate to act within a specific time. Dirksen played a crucial role in the passage of the compre hensive Civl Rights Bills of 1964 and last year's voting rights measure. Not only did he work closely with the administration in draft- Ing compromise language, but he also threw his support behind winning the two-thirds majority necessary to prevent Southern opponents from filibustering the legislation to death. He said Monday, however, that he would not try to choke off a filibuster against a bill he regarded as "absolutely unconstitutional." WELCOME NEWS Dirksen also said he knew of no way in which the fair housing section could be rewritten to make it constitutional and "still get the effect they want." This was bound to be welcome news to Southern senators who earlier in the day had met in the office of Sen.

Richard B. Eussell, to discuss their strategy for battling the legislation. However, Dirksen Indicated he would go along with other parts of the bill--to prevent ra cial discrimination in selecting juries, to increase criminal pen allies for intimidation or violence aganst civil rights workers, and to broaden the attorney general's power to file suits for the desegregation of schools and other public facilities.

Cernan will rehearse their flight plan inside a practice capsule at Cape Kennedy. Gemini 9 is due to fly May 17. The space flight calls for a two-hour, 25-minute walk in space by Cernan, several rendezvous and docking exercises with an Agena target satellite, and firing the Agena's main engines while Gemini 9 is attached to it in space. The entire mission is expected to last three days. Technicians plan to spend the rest of this week checking electrical systems and radar communications.

The Illinois Bureau of Race Track Police, a department of the Illinois Racing Board, said this is an infinitesimal figure when compared with the year's total pari-mutuel handle of $416,414,657, for 429 racing days and nights. The Secret Service Office In Chicago is immediately notified of the number of the bill and the city named on the bill and the bank uRon which it is supposedly drawn. This gives the service a lead as to where the "batch" originated.

The word then is passed to other localities to watch for the passers. Nationally, about $3,363,000 in contraband bills was recovered the fiscal year ending Juna 30, 1965.

By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Diplomats and other foreign observers in Santo Domingo think the Inter-American Peace Force may remain in the Dominican Republic through the summer. They said today indications are that neither of the two leading presidential candidates will obtain an overwhelming mandate in the election next month, ami the iorce wiii be needed to help the winner consolidate his position. There are 6,800 U.S.

troops in the peace force. The new president is to be installed on June 30. The observers speculate that the inter- American force may stay in the country until September. BOSCH TO WIN The general expectation is that ex-President Juan Bosch, candidate of the Dominican Revolutionary party, willl defeat Joaquin Balaguer of the Reformist party, bui that he won't get the 60 per cent vote he got in 1962. U.S.

troops fired on left-wing extremists who attacked a peace 'force observation post last Thursday after an anti- American demonstration in front of the U.S. Embassy. Six Dominicans were wounded. WITHDRAWAL HOPED But a general improvement in the internal political situation and withdrawal of the peace from the central part of Santo Domingo has heightened the hopes of some Dominicans that the foreign troops will leave soon.

ORDINARY NEIGHBOR Admirable qualities are always easier to appreciate at a distance. It is almost impossible to see greatness in one's next- door neighbor, even though the world should hail him.
