Rights Bi Passage Predicted Associated Press WABHWOf 0 N (AP) - A civ i! rights bill born of compromise appears destined for Senate pas* sage after a six-toeek struggle. The new bill could be presented today if proponents of ciivll rights legislation agree on the details before the Senate opens for business. The next move would be a re* newed attempt (o choke off a debate carried on by Southern and conservative Republican opponents since Congress reconvened Jan, 15. No final vote on the bill Itself is expected before next week at the earliest. Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen, who twice has voted against ending the debate, told newsmen Tuesday "a very substantial measure of agreement" had been reached on the bill, V.. Dirksen said the compromise measure's open-housing provision "will be stronger than the one 1 helped kill two years ago." The compromise open-housing proposal would take effect in three stages, applying immediately to housing financed with federal aid and by the end of the year to big apartments and housing developments. The third stage, applying in a limited degree to sale or rental of single-family dwellings, reportedly would take effect next year. It would exempt single-family dwellings if the owners sell or rent the property themselves but would not permit them to Instruct real-estate brokers todis- criminate. The House passed an open- housing bill In 1966 which would have applied to about 40 per cent of the nation's housing. It was this measure which Dirksen helped defeat In the Senate. As currently written, the measure's open-housing provisions would apply to about 97 per cent of the nation's housing. Dirksen outlined for newsmen some of the proposed compromises involving the other part of the new.bill—provlding criminal penalties for use of violence to 'interfere with voting, jury ' , dations ' aiid' Bother' |! federally guaranteed rights. The original administration bill called for federal protection for Negroes and civil-rights workers. Dirksen said the new measure involves two categories. He said in some cases no racial motivation would have to be Involved to make assaults a federal crime, but In other cases it would be a factor. Other sources reported the compromise also would give states a chance to act in such cases before the federal government could prosecute. OVERHAUL OF .

"And as the intensity of the war increases, more and more draftees will wind up as war casualties," he said.

Increase in Rates oh Car Insurance LITTLE ROCK (AP)-A special Insurance Department examiner took under advisement Tuesday a request for an average 5,5 per cent increase in automobile insurance rates. Steele Hays, a Little Rock lawyer who heard the case for the Insurance Department, will deliver his recommendation to insurance Commissioner Allan Home for a final decision. The Insurance Rating Board is seeking the increase in automobile liability, physical damage and collision insurance rates.

The statement said: "The declaration of U Thartt according to which the unconditional cessation of American bombardments of North Vietnam v/ould be a necessary and sufficient condition for the open- Ing of peace negotiations corresponds to information explicitly received by the French government.
