i-AGK TWO Hal Boyle's Column— Civil Rights Victory in Senate Now Would Mean Very Little Except Start on New Filibuster By James .Marlnw WASHINGTON, MARCH 12. Wj-Herc's a brier ABC on the filibuster and other complicated doings in the Senate right now. The President's civil rights program is at the heart of It. But the light now isn't on Hie program Itself. ,, It's oil the technical thai m»y slant! Iji the wny of dome something about the prognim. And If the Senate, maybe months from now, Rets nrmmd lo doing something about the program itself, the present fijjht starts all over. That's why you'd better ask fort—— __. odds if you're betting the civil rights year. Why? . No civil righls bill Is ready to be brought up now. nut. suppose one Is midy l>y next May. When a motion Is made to briiifi It up. the •Southerners would be lire to fill- buster endlessly and prevent It's ever reaching the debating stage. But .suppose the Senate upheld Ilarklcy today. Then some more steps, all chewing up W»LU li JUVIJC ,/VLllJI^ UJU VIVI1 It^jlL^ program, or any part of It, will pass tills year. First, the background, and then what's happening non. There are two main steps In Senate consideration of n 1)111, like an antl-lynching bill: A motion lo consider It, and then debate and vote on the bill itself. __ There's an old Senate rule that 1 technical when debate on a bill starts, there time, must be taken, can be unlimited debate, or a filibuster, on it, unless— Two thirds of the Senate vote to limit debate. This is called Impns- tng cloture. Because senators usually want no limit on their freedom to talk endlessly, that two- thirds vote is hard to get. A vole on a bill Itself is much easier. That needs only a major'ty vote. Then comes nest May or June, when ihe .Senate is nishlni; to get (hrotich for the year and It.s work is pilrii up. Hay Die Trimianttes llieij are ready to bring up a civil rights bill and make a motion to do so. The Southerners promptly would filibuster against the motion. Sup- j pose finally— In view of Bnrkley's ailing- yesterday— the rest of the Southerners In .he Saddle j . Srlwu> •„„„„.,„- c , o( ,, re by „ two .
