TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 195Z BI.YTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Senate Veterans Smi/e at Talk Of 'Effort to End Filibusters' By KDWIN B. HAAKINSOM WASHINGTON 1*1 — Political • campaign promises of an effort to • end Senate filibusters are produc- H Irig some knowing smiles from Sen* • ate veterans thse days. • They recall tbnt It has been at• tempted many limes, most recent- I ly in 1949, and has invariably • failed. t Both Gov. Adlai Stevenson, Denv -ocratic presidential candidate, and Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge (R-Mass), a booster for Dwight D. Eisenhower, the RennhUran nominee, have pointed up the filibuster issue during the current campaign. A filibuster is simply a protracted debate or talk to prevent a vote on a controversial issue. In recent years in the Senate this usually has Involved such civil rights legislation as anti-poll tax, anti-racial segregation or similar McClellan Hits At President Senator Critical Of Truman Stand At Bull Shoals Dam BULL SHOALS, Arfc. [/Pj — Sen. John L. McClellnn struck out at President Truman yesterday he pulled the switch to besin txirn- ins out no'.ver at the new 76 million dollar Bull'; dam here. McClcUan, principal speaker at ceremonies heralding actual start of the nation's newest hydro-electric dam, said that "these are not occasions for the expression of purely partisan sentiments." He took Issue with Mr. Truman for what he termed turning the dam's dedication ceremonies into a •partisan" event on July 2. Truman Tnshed into private power Interests and the Arkansas Power and Light Co. in his dedicatory address. The state's senior senator said there is a place for both private and public power in meeting needs and demands of Arkansas cities and industries. He said that 91 per cent of the alatc's power output increase since 1951—3.4 billion kilowatt hours- came from private power companies. McClellan said he did not intend to minimise public hydroelectric power, "but . . . we should give credit where it belongs." McClellan was introduced by U. S.

Embassy announced Tuesday a flotilla of American fighting ships will steam up the Adriatic Sea for a four-day visit to Yugoslavia, beginning Sept. 11. The flotilla—including the 50,COO-ton aircraft, carrier Coral Sea, before! tnc heavy cruiser Salem and the destroyers Braine. Mullany, Stod- ciard nml Herman K. Perry — is under the command of Vice Adm. J. H, Cassady. commander of the U. S. Sixth Fleet stationed in the proposals. Under a long respected tradition of unlimited debate, Senate rules now make It virtually impossible to end a filibuster unless at least 64 senators—two thirds of the 96— are willing to do this and stay on the job for long hours to accomplish It. Technically, a test of cloture—01 limiting debate to obtain a vote- can be obtained if 16 senators sign a petition. The difficulty comes in mustering enough senators to approve what opponents always call "a gag rule." Usually Southern Democrats line up almost solidly against cloture and with the end of 10 or 12 senators from other sections have enough senators to approve what opponents always call "a gag rule/" Usually Southern Democrats line up almost solidly against loclure and with the aid of 10 or 12 seim toks from ottier sections have enough votes—33—to block such attempts.

British to Send Slim'Down Under 7 LONDON «P) — Official sources said today that Britain will name the 61-year-old chief of the Imperial General Staff, Field Marshal Sir William Slim, as governor general of Australia. The nation's No. 1 ranking soldier, who commanded Britain's 14th Army in Burma during World War II, will succeed Sir William McKell as the Queen's personal representative in the Australian commonwealth. The outspoken Slim will lake up tiis new assignment in the fall. He will be succeeded as chief of the imperial staff by Gen. Sir John Harding, who now commands British armed forces in Germany. Soviet Congress Widely Discussed MOSCOW wvWide discussions of the proposed agenda for the con- improving congressional machinery to assure majority action. It refers to both the Senate and House. Gov. Stevenson last week pledged that as president he would use his influence "to get the Senate to change its rules under which fili- justers have killed civil rights legislation." Sen. Lodge, emerging from a conference with Eisenhower, promptly accused Stevenson of a pious, insincere piece of double talk," noting that Democrats had controlled the Senate for four years and had done nothing about ending filibusters. Lodge now is ranking Republican on the Senate Rules Committee and a candidate for re-election. If he wins and Republicans get control of the Senate. Lodge said that as rules chairman: "I will fight filibusters as long as it takes to end filibusters. It never has been done and I am the boy who wants to do it." Senate officials said this probably would be a long, long time. They point out that even the rule that allows 64 senators to shut off debate does not apply to any change in the rules of the Senate itself. And veterans agree that as fe\\ as eight senators could conduct a permanent filibuster --that woul< prevent action on any 'legislation—if they decided that was the only way to preserve present rules. gress of the Soviet, Communist par- • ty next month were continuing today in factories and organizations | MOSCOW Reports Death throughout the country -but thus -. :•• • ~ .-,-,: * far no criticisms have been reported.

Truman departed from his prepared text at Milwaukee to take a swat at the U. S. Supreme Court majority which held his seizure of the steel mills illegal. He cited a long list of grievances against the Republicans and said Truman demonstrated his ability "I'll tell you all about the steel case one of these days and analyze Demo Politicos Fear Stevenson May 'Go Too Far and Too Fast 1 MOSCOW (/PI— Moscow newspapers today reported the death o poet-satirist, Sergei Basov-VcrkhO' yantsev, 83, a revolutionary writer who was arrested, exiled and imprisoned 'requently under the Cza- rlst regime. published any Hems taking a negative attitude toward the proposals. By JAMKS MARLOW WASHINGTON WV-Some of the professional Democratic politicians are reportedly worried that Gov. Stevenson may use up his ammunition too fast. Their thinking seems to go like this: If he s]>ells out in detail his position on all the issues too early in the campaign, which opened yesterday, by the end of the campaign he'll sound like a scratched phonograph record: repeating himself. But this seems to be a hazard he faces only if his ideas are so limited, and the issues so few, that all he has to say can be said in the first few weeks. Running out of something to say is a fate which seldom o»ertnkes a politician, and Gov. Stevenson has had some political experience. §ince Gen. Eisenhower is so much Steven- better known than he son may feel it's necessary to start shooting with both barrels early to get attention. He may also feel that since he's running for the presidency, he has an obligation to make his position clear and that's the only way he'd want to run. Some of the people around Eisenhower have indicated that the general is pacing himself, that lie aims | to pick up steam as he goes along and have plenty of socko left for the windup. There is a hazard in thas strategy, too. of course. If Stevenson states his position on tlie main issues early and Eisenhower later comes along and takes a slmilai stand, the Democrats are a cinch to tag him with "me, too." The fact that men in both camps are discussing whether the candidates should lay it on the line on all the issues early is pretty goo<: evidence they haven't laid much on the line yet. About the most definite thing either of them has said so far was Stevenson's Detroit speech yesterday. He flatly suggested wiping "out the Taft-Harlley Act and replacing it with a milder labor law. This was the real campaign opener. Eisenhower gets under way today with speeches in the South. 'Just Another Day' in Japan TOKYO m -It was Just another day in Japan Tuesday—this seventh \ yfriniversary of the signing of the 'i ^Japanese surrender documents. It was the first anniversary Japan has observed as an independent nation, but it passed with little notice. Leading Japanese newspapers did not even mention the anniversary.

The Dred Scott decision by the U. S. Supreme Court In 1857 concerned a Missouri Negro slave, Dred Scott, who contended he was a free man because he had resided with his original master for two years In a territory later the slate of Minnesota where slavery was forbidden Scott brought a Federal Court action of assault and battery against a New Yorker who purchased him from his original Missouri master. When the case finally reached the U. S. Supreme Court, the court ruled that Scott was still R slave and not a Missouri citizen and he thi. fore could not sue In the federa ourts. The Importance of the decision was the majority opinion that no Negro could become a U. S. citizen and that slavery could not be prohibited in U. S. territories. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution 11 years later declared Negroes to be citizens ol Ihe U. S. Truman didn't mention Gen.
