A special message setting out the administration's new farm program, originally scheduled to be submitted Tuesday, was postponed indefinitely today. The White House announcement did not say when it be rescheduled. The farm message, when it is ready, is expected to endorse broader control Senators Prepare Filibuster WASHINGTON Kennedy's efforts to get congres- sional action on civil -rights legis- lation appear headed toward the usual roadblock-a Southern Dem- ocratic filibuster in the Senate. There are no current signs that Democrats and Republicans who support the administration bi can muster the strength to fall a filibuster. Test Revision The bill, introduced last Thurs- day by Senate Democratic Lead- er Mike Mansfield of Montana, would revise state literacy tests, which often are used to block minorities from voting. A sixth- grade education would be the only literacy qualification for voters in federal elections. In the months that lie between now and next November's con- gressional elections, Kennedy stands to gain politically by .hav- programs with a view to bringing stability to all farm commodities.

Senate Rules Under the Senate's rules, two- thirds of those voting would have to approve in order to invoke de- bate-limiting cloture and kill a filibuster. If history repeats, a solid phalanx of Dixie Democrats by a handful of Northern party members and some Repub- prevent any action. Thus, in the end. the Republi- cans will be able to say they pro- vided a majority for action on civil rights but Democrats balked. Showdown A great deal of political march- ing forth and back will proceed this showdown. It begins today with the issue of whether an ad- ministration bill should be sent to the Senate Judiciary Commit- tee, headed by Sen. James O. Eastland, D-Miss. Sen, Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., a proponent of civil rights legis- lation, has said Mansfield's bill should go to the Rules Commit- tee, which handles election legis- lation. Javits said he might try to force this action today by a vote. Sponsors know very well they will never get the bill out of Eastland's committee. 'Hearings Sought Mansfield is resigned to this, but he said he hopes to be able to obtain some hearings on the proposal before he moves to offer it as a rider to some other legis- lation. Such a which Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois could be ex- pected to have the ef- fect of bypassing the committee. But it would bump immediately into a Southern filibuster.

Wea- ver, a Negro who now heads the New Texas Congressman Takes Seat WASHINGTON (AP) Texas Democrat Graham B.

Purcell's overwhelming victory Saturday over Joe Meissner, a conservative Republican. business- man, clearly was a sweet one for the Democrats.

Dreary Picture Takes Shape Of Free City' BERLIN (AP) From state- ments of Communist leaders, a picture is beginning to emerge of the walled-in "free city of West Berlin" they have demanded. The picture is a dreary one. It would leave 2.2 million West Berliners in a city of 185 square ly for German reunification. It opposes anything that would iead to general recognition of even a second German state, the satel- lite "German Democratic Repub- lic" set up by the Soviets. Western officials are talking of arrangements that would go part miles, about half the size of toward meeting Soviet de- York. There might be some token troops of the Western powers left, but they would be joined by So- viet units.
