House Session Gets a Bit Dull After the First Eight Roll Calls By Arthur Eilwn WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. (AP) — It was a great day in the House yesterday—for retired train callers and officials of the know-your- own-Congrcssman league. Over and over again, the roll of the 435 House members was called. "Abbilt . . . Abernethy . . . Addonizio," the clerk would begin. Thirty minutes laler he would wind up with, "Yates . . . Young Zablocki." The galleries were full, packed with pocple hired by the report a fuss over civil rights was brewing. But Ihere Is more lhan one way to fight legislatively, in the House the process was to dema'nd another roll call, to see if a quorum was present or to see if it wasn't time U> knock off work and go home. Since each roll call takes around 30 minutes .this can get a trifle on the dull side, for everyone except possibly those mentioned In paragraph one of this item. Congressmen spent their time in varying ways. Rep. Albert Engel (R-Mich) read a newspaper. Rep. Judd (R-Minn) sat at H tnble. busily doing his homework. Rep. Rankln (D-Miss) pulled reflectively at his car. Rep. Blemiller (D-Wis) munched candy. Some visited. Some just sat there. And practically all yawned. This will show you how dull things got: During one roll call Rep. Dawson (D-ni), one of the two Ne;;rcc5 In the house, absent-mindedly voted, In effect, against civil rights legislation. I'e caught himself Just In time, hastily switched his vote. A laugh was had by all, including Dnwsqii. I had planned to give a report on the civil rights debate, but, thoroughly numbed by the whole business, I totlered away around nightfall, before the House even got started on Ihe bill Itself. Dill, after eight, .roll calk I can give you a firsl-hand, non-partisan viewpoint: When you've heard one roll call, you've, heard them all. Police Search For Prisoners MEMPHIS, Feb. 23.
