What happened as a result of that — gre.-sional elections later In 1950— to get more Trunianites elected. Particularly among Negro voters. The seats of all 435 House members and a little more than one- third of the X senators are involved in (he 1950 elections, Senator Humphrey, Minnesota Democrat and one of those most responsible for getting the civil rights plank into the Democratic Party platform in 1948. says the FEPC is the "real guts" of the program. Tile Southern Democrats arc, perhaps, more hitler about the FEPC bill than any other part of the Truman civil rights program. It's an invasion of individual and states rights, they say. Why. then, should !hc Trumim- ites bring up the f'EI'c bill instead of ,say, the anti-lynching or anti- ' poll tax bills?

But, before the 1949 filibuster was over, this happened: The Senate, with Republicans joining the Southern Democrats made this rule for the future: Now a filibuster can't be stopped unless two-lhirds of the total 96 senators vote to stop It, whether 01 not all 36 are present on the floor That's tougher to get than jus two-thirds, plus one. of those merclj present at any voting lime. Issue May Go to Voters That's what the Tmmanites fac^ In 1350 if they try to bring up the FEPC bill and a filibuster starts. Some .senators are-so set again* any limit on Senate debate tbat they might vote against stopping a filibuster even though they might be willing to vote for FEPC once the filibuster was over.
