The opposition, led by Sen. Clair Enge (D-Callf) counted on a speech by Sen. Harry F. Byrd (D-Va) Tuesday night, and a two- hour address by Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-Ga) today, to tip the scales in their favor. But Sen. J. William Fulbright (D-Ark), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told a reporter he was hopeful the nec- es^sary two-thirds votes could be mustered to assure its approval, i Another supporter, Sen. Mike i Mansfield (D-Mont), assistant j majority leader, said he was not iso sure. All agreed "it will be very close." Sen. Byrd is the brother of the late Adm. Richard E. Byrd, whose pioneering explorations of the Antarctic provided the basis of earlier unofficial U.S. claims to ant- arctic territory. The treaty recognizes no such claims by any country, but opponents object it would give formal recognition to the Soviet Union's presence in Antarctica. The. treaty, Byrd said, "is bad for the United States and good for Russia." But Fuibright told the Senate that the treaty not only would dedicate the antarctic to peaceful scientific exploration on a cooperative basis but would tie thp : the missile's nose cone, which is i Soviet Union for the first time to' subjected to varied re-entry con-1 the acceptance of rigid interna- sile. The test, termed successful by officials, was one of several planned over various ranges. Another Atlas is being groomed lor an 8,000-mile flight. Scientists also want to check the performance of Southerners that they ought to support the ticket. Sen. Olin D. Johnston (D-SC) has agreed to go along. Sen. Russell B.

He is Jordan W. Chambers, 63, a politician, undertaker and night club owner who claims to be the first Negro in Missouri ever elected to office on the Democratic ticket. Chambers' two defeated Negro opponents for Democratic committeeman of the 19th Ward, Arthur Lee Curry and Ray Howard, leveled the charges at a hearing before the election board. Howard, 23. a law school senior at St. Louis University, testified he was attacked by a Chambers- hired "teamster's gangster" in front of a polling place on election Scott, one of Vice President Richard M. Nixon's top advisers, said the Democratic platform had "promised everything this side of paradise" but that Senate Democrats had washed out this pledge. Keating viewed the use of a motion to table (kill)—which cuts off debate—as a part of grand design of the Democrats to use "their two-thirds majority to run roughshod over the minority," ignore Eisenhower's legislative proposals and enact their own program. But Sen John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts, the Democratic presidential nominee, called the Republican move "eleventh-hour politics."

Once in a while, if you ever gel the chance and like such things as fishing, try to hook a lew brook trout. All that is a time-tested formula offered by a man who has found it works very well, indeed: Herbert Hoover. The tanner Republican president is spryly observing his 86th birthday today—at his desk working as usual He didn't have time lor anything else much, as eight full-time secretaries will readily affirm. Hoover, with some reluctance but with good-natured remarks, took time out Tuesday to answer questions ill connection with what he termed his "bipartisan" birthday and also to give a general accounting of his activities dunny the past year. They included: Attendance at 35 public functions, delivery of 20 speeches ("without a ghost writer"), answering 21,195 letters, acceptance of 23 awards, 14,000 miles of travel, television appearances, cornerstone layings and the raising of $1,200,000 or more for his pet project, the Boys Clubs of America. "1 hope you wil) conclude that I have not ceased work," he said smilingly to a roomful of reporters and photographers. He said he hadn't intended to hold a birthday news conference this year. "I thought we had done that stunt often enough," Hoover remarked with a grin. "However, thai idea met inan.v protests " He voiced pleasure at receiving "many touching tributes from both sides of the political area." "I have many friends on the other side." lie added. Hoover suid he aUo was gratified by an avalanche of favorable comment on his most recent "farewell speech" at the Republican National Convention. perform in television are worried, it's a cinch television viewers are! due for a period of confusion. The | networks have been playing a i game of musical chairs with the programs. When fall comes many of our old favorites will be turning • up at new times and different I days, and, in several cases, on 1 other channels. i For instance, the familiar pattern of Sunday night is to be turned topsy-turvy. NBC is coming in with three new Sunday evening shows—Shirley Temple, "National Velvet." and Tab Hunter's series and it has moved "This Is Your Life" from its old mid-week berth to the end of its Sunday night lineup opposite CBS' perennial "What's My Line" and ABC's newly acquired "Churchill Memoirs." CBS has pushed Jack Benny's show ahead a half hour, and slipped in "Candid Camera," a new show. ABC has a new hour- long adventure series coming into its Sunday night lineup, "The Islanders." And that's just the mixup of one night. Alfred Hitchcok's suspense shows movies, not onl.\ from CBS to NBC. but from Sunday to Tuesday nights. Ann Sothern is bounced from Monday night to Thursday night on CBS—opposite ABC's "The Untouchables" and NBC's Ernie Ford show. "To Tell the Truth" is set to move to 7:30 Monday nights after a long stay in the Thursday evening list. There are many more changes in store.
