WEDNESDAY, MARCH », 194* BT.YTHKVUFJ! (ARK.) COURIER K15WS ITHE NATION TODAY \Unlimited Speeches in Senate I By Southerners Gives Test to I Truman's Civ/7 Rights Program By Jrnme* Mftrlov* WASHINGTON, March 9. WV-Here's .in ABC on the Stum* filibuster fight which R«U up » hold ol steam this week. Several things in Involved: The fate of President Truman's civil riehu program; the Iblllty or I failure o[ the Soutliern Democrats to block it; and the right, or ability | of A minority 10 blorlc the will of » majority. A /Illbiiiter—unlimited speechmaklng—liiiiipena only lii Ihe Hrn;it« never in the Hciisc. 'Hide's a House rule limiting debate. Not in Hie Senile. + And there are two kinds of IIII ibtiscers: by and individual senator, or ft group of senators filibustering in relays. Example: An Individual is against a bill Che rest of the Senate wants to [ pass. He kno\vs he can't talk more than 15 or 20 hours straight without dropping from exhaustion. Speakers Work In HeUys And when that hnppens, he Wordy Lady PAGE ELEVEN knows, ihc patient Senate will then i tlic hill. Still, wanting lo res-1 islpr his protest, he filibusters. This one man stand means nothing. J °s reJay kind Hint coiinU: \S'hrn a Rroup of senntors. say 2j, wants lo |>r?venl ll'e lost of Ihe Ofi senators from veiling on something u^e Iho PL'c r ;ir 1 e]il.'s ci\ r il rights prosiTim. This minority, talking in rclny. can KO ou for \vceMs or monihs while all other Hentuc business slows and piles up. If this ROCS on long enouch. Ihe Senate may have to cnst aside, for lack of time, some of the other 1m- ) portant bills il hoped to pass. A filibuster can be stopped though, in two days: 1. By letting ttie minority win. This is when the majority finally agrees to drop the bill that caOsed the filibuster. When that occurs, the particular bill is dead for the rest of the session. 2. By beating Ihe minority and brcakhiK the filibuster. This happens when two-thirds of the sen- ntors vote to srtilt off the filibuster by limiting debate. But— Senators Prlie Their Freedom That seldom happens. A two- tbirds vote of the Senate to hall * filibuster In hard to get. Senators • A a group, prize their freedom 1 to talk without limit. Tlie argument: "Some day I may be opposed to something and want to filibuster. If I shut off somebody's filibuster now, mine may be shut'off some other time." The Southern Democratic senators, although members of Mr. Truman's own party, long ago announced they'd filibuster to prevent Mr. Truman's civil rights program from passing. Mr, Truman intended this program to be of particular benefit to Negroes. Mr. Ti umaii and his aides decided to have a shov.'down on whether the program could get through the Senate. The Senate now has reached the showdown stiiRe: Whether enough senators will vote to shut off a southern filibuster. (The big Issue Is ft proposed rlile.s change which would permit a two-thirds vote to shut off debate on a" motion. Such a vote no\Y can stop debate on an actual hill. The business before the Senate now is a motion to lake up the proposed rules changed In passing an ordinary bill, only majority senate vote Is needed. Snullu-rntri t» Win "If" The Southerners will win ai block the civil rights proumm 1 this session if— Enough Northern Democrats and Republicans sympathize with thi'iu i and refuse lo vote for ending debate. Bui the Southerners are in n minority In tlie Senate. H they didn't filibuster, a majority of senators probably would von for the program. So nil this iwises a problem: Should a minority In this country be able to block the full will of the majority? Almobl everything Con- Zhief Eagle Feather to Let Wife Keep Scalp, But He's Through with Squaws gress rtoes Ls by ma.jorlly vole. But supporters oif the filibuster ' argue it's of grave importance thai minority rfelns be protccicd by Hie filibuster. They .say II keeps ihc majority from over-riding a. minority. This always comes back U> Ihe question: What minority are you talking aboul? in [his comiirv white people are in n majority, ne- groes are a minority. In tlie Senale white Southern senators are in a minority. But in their southern states white people- are fn a majority and negroes in minority.
