Before members is a motion by Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana to put aside the measure. If it prevails as expected on a roll call vote, that will be the end for civil rights legislation in the 87th Congress. Politically, there was something for everyone in this outcome. Southern opponents could brag at home they had killed another civil rights bill by their filibustering tac- tics. Advocates of the measure could assure interested voters they had Wife Claims Hubby Forced Remarriage PHOENIX, Ariz. W.

Police said Howard was held under provisions of a suspended counties in the South where sentence under which he was to its supporters said state tests done their best and would be back to try again.

Mrs. Howard, a slender, attrac- tive brunet, said Monday night she intended to sign a complaint against her husband, charging kidnaping and assault.

Southerners called the measure an unconstitutional inva- sion of the right of states to fix voting qualifications. The 52-42 vote by which the Senate Monday refused to limit debate sealed the measure's fate for all practical purposes. But advocates would not let it be. buried without a proper wake. They took over the talk from the Southerners who had used up most of the time of 14 working days since Mansfield and Senate Re- publican leader Everett M. Dirk- sen of Illinois first maneuvered April 24 to bring the measure be- fore the Senate. Sen. Paul Douglas, D-I11., blamed what he called an unholy alliance of Southern Democrats and conservative Republicans, mostly from the West, for the Senate's failure to get action on the measure. He said that pledged in their 1960 platform to back such legislation found it easy to vote against limiting de- bate after having been given a chance last week to record them- ada and was instantly killed.

(AP Here's How Trust Financing Works By GEORGE GURLEY The first trust, a new method for financing city -improvements, may well receive the official sanction of the City Council next Monday night. If it does, it will give the city another method of financing pub- lic improvements and represents a marked departure from the its attendant expense and delay. It does not actually benefit the entire city, only a portion. And while the construction costs are relatively small as city proj- ects go, they will be large enough to fall outside the bounary of items which could be handled within the confines budget. inal rental to the city for this Forces Will Embark Tomorrow Morning From 7th Fleet Ships WASHINGTON Kennedy today or- j dered U.S. Marines into Thailand.

The statement mentioned only the dispatch of "addi- tional elements of the U.S. military forces, both ground and air."

Treason Trial Of Secret Army Leader Opens Today In Paris PARIS (AP) Raoul Salan goes on trial for treason today before a special court that is considered certain to sentence him to death for his leadership of the Secret Army Organization in Algeria. President de Gaulle' govern- ment enforced extraordinary se- curity precautions around the rambling, historic Palace of Jus- tice to prevent any desperate at- tempt by rightist terrorists to free their hero. All other courts were cleared from the palace wing housing the trial, and only one entrance was open there. Automobile and pe- destrian traffic was diverted from the building, and all parking was forbidden in the area. Persons with admission cards for the narrow, rectangular court- room had to clear three check- points and undergo a thorough search. A strong guard surround- ed the building and was stationed on the roof. Salan, 62, former supreme com- mander in Algeria, was arrested April 20 in Algiers along with his wife and daughter. The black hiustache and black hair dye that were part of his disguise for a year have disappeared. The mus- tache was shaved off and the hair has returned to its natural -gray. The specific charges against Salan are that he took part .in the short-lived generals' revolt in Algiers in April. 1961, and later took command of the underground secret army's terror campaign. Both insurrections were staged to defeat Algerian independence. The prosecution will lay before the court documents and testi- mony charging that Salan, as head of the terrorists, was respon- sible for more than attacks in Algeria and 400 in France, which caused more than 400 deaths and injuries. Salan denied none of the charg- es during the pre-trial investiga- tion. Instead he asked the court to call De Gaulle and 132 other witnesses in an effort to widen the scope of the trial beyond the generals' revolt and the Secret Army campaign. He apparently will attempt to discredit De Gaulle, to link him with an unsuccessful attempt to Salan in 1957 and to prove that.De Gaulle by agreeing to let Algeria choose independence betrayed the French army and the Algerian Europeans who brought him back to power in the 1958 uprising. The court of three judges, four military officers and two civilians is expected to refuse to call most of. the witnesses demanded by Salan. The French constitution bars any such appearance by DC Gaulle as the chief of state, "I. am ready to Salan has said, "but first I intend.to defend my Coroner Says Shark Victim s All Drowned .NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. on six men hauled from barracuda-infested waters show they drowned before the fish attacked, them.
