IMS JOc Paper Conslsti ol Two Associated PTCM Full Leaw No 129 Medi to conference Voting rights measure given House approval WASHINGTON AP A tough voting rights bill aimed at clearing tHe way to the polls for Negroes in the South has won solid House approval but still faces obstacles The House after a stirring appeal by one of its Southern members for support of the bill passed it by an overwhelming 33385 vote Friday night setting up a clash with the Senate over poll taxes The differences in the two versions now must be reconciled in a SenateHouse conference Twentythree members from the states of the old Confeder acy voted for the bill which aims a heavy blow at Southern centers of resistance to Negro voting Under both the House and Senate versions literacy tests would be suspended in Ala bama Mississippi Louisiana Georgia South Carolina Virgin ia and parts of North Carolina and federal registrars could be used to sign up Negroes to vote It would apply to those states because less than 50 per cent of their adult populations voted or were registered in the 1964 elec lions The bills part company over poll taxes however The House bill would outlaw them a step the Senate refused to take with vlhe administration leading the fight against such a move Now the two versions will have to be reconciled before a bill can be enacted In nailing down a big victory for the administration the House snowed under a Republi can substitute backed by the House GOP leadership The vote was 248 to 171 against it with 21 Republicans joining 227 Demo crats to help defeat it Fiftysix Democrats and 115 Republicans voted for it The voting came after four days of debate and exhortation that reached an emotional cli max when Rep Hale Boggs of Louisiana the assistant Demo cratic leader pleaded for sup port of the administration bill over the milder GOP version Boggs said I love my state I love the South with every part of me and I love my country He said a belief in the funda mental right of every American to vote prompted him to call for passage of the bill drastic though it may be Boggs speech and his asser tion that Negroes are being de nied the vote in parts of the South won him praise from Northerners Another Southern voice was raised in support of the bill when Rep Charles L Wcltncr DGa said although the bill may be drastic the problem is drastic and the need is dras tic The House added a vote fraud amendment offered by Rep William C Cramer RFla that is also in the Senate bill Adopt ed by a vote of 253IG5 it would apply criminal penalties to per sons giving fraudulent registra tion information Two other amendments were approved during early consid eration of the bill but rejected on later roll call votes FOCUS on North loM Corn borer estimate
