UNP»UBVA*LB -. - - - -. , SlJT IT'S HOT DO<fJH I ASHOl Amendment To Ban Poll Tax OK d By Congress By WILLIAM F. ARBOfSAST a 23-ycsr batllc, Congress has approved a proposed constitutional amendment which would ban poll laxes h federal elections. Now it's up to the states, which have seven years to make up their With 40 voles to spare, the House completed action Monday on a resolution submitting to the state lerislaturcA the proposition of making It constitutionally iviung to require payment of a poll tax to vote in elections for federal officials. The vrle was 295 to #5. A two- thirds n.ajority was needed for approval The winners included 163 Democrats and 132 Republicans. On the losing side were 71 Democrats and 15 Republicans. Most of Ihe dissenting Democrats were from the five states still having poll raxes: Arkaasas. i Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and j Virginia. The next move is up to the General Services Administration. That agency must certify the con! gressional action—approved last March hy the Senate—to the governor? of the 50 states. If three- fourths of the state legislatures- Si! of them—ratify the proposec i amendment within seven years I iwill become the law of the land The abolition proposal does no | affect elections for state and loca .officials. H applies only to presi dential and vice presidential elec tors and lo voters for senators and United States representatives There was no certainty that ap iproval of the 38 legislatures woult be forthcoming despite the fac 1 that only five states now have pol tax laws. Some Southern state which have repealed their own poll tax laws may look upon thi proposal as an attempt by thi federal government to prescribe ; qualifications for voters. The House action lessened foi the time being the potency of pol taxes as a national political issue For years the platforms of botl 'major political parties have clam ored for repeal of poll taxes, and since 1.939 Congress has grapple< with the issue. The House hat : passed five bills that tackled the \ problem from the legislative poin j of view. Twice the Senate passes constitutional amendment propos als.

The House approved a Senat version of the bill 372 to 10 Mon day. foreclosing any chance to an other Senate filibuster. A small group of House liberals argued again that the bill repre sents a giveaway of millions of taxpayers' dollars spent on space research that makes the revolu tionary communications system possible. Rep. William Springer, R-II1.. said, "If you say this is a give- i away bill, you're saying the Pres| ident sent down a giveaway bill I lo the Congress of the United j States."
