WASHINGTON, July 25.—UNS> —The House will vote today for the fifth time in eight years on a proposal to ban poll taxes in seven southern states. The action will be largely ' a gesture, for the Senate has always filibustered such legislation to death. There is nothing to indicate that southern senators have had a change of heart. The anti-poll tax bill is the first civil rights legislation to be acted upon by either house in almost seven months of continuous ses sion. No attempt is expected to be made by Senate leaders to call up the House bill before adjournment unless administration chieftains decide to make a last-minute gesture.
