Sen. Cleeta John Rogers branded the plan, announced Saturday by the committee authorized m the Nov. b elec- tion, an "obvious gerrymander" to keep Oklahoma Coun- ty Negroes out of the Senate. He indicated he might take his objection to the state Supreme Court. The plan is to take effect in 196o. The reapportionment commission comprised of Secretary ol State William Christian, Treasurer William Burkhart and Acting Atty. Gen. Fred Hanscn came up with the apportionment plan after three meetings within a 24-hour period. Burkhart said Rogers "can propose his own plan in court it ne can bring in one that is better and more equal, I'd like.that. Burkhart said that is one of the "beautiful things" about the re- apportionment amendment "if any citizen has a' better plan, he has a chance to bring it forth." Rogers said the plan was devised lo divide Negro voters in Okla- homa County and throw them into predominantly white al districts. Under provisions of the plan filed Saturday there would be 44 sena- tors and 109 House members. Oklahoma County would have 8 senators, Tulsa County 7 and Co- manche 2. These counties would be represented by one senator: Beaver, Cim- arron Harper, Texas, Woods and Woodward; Beckham, Ellis, Greer, Roger Mills and Washita; Harmon, Jackson and Tillman; Elaine, Caddo and Kiowa; Alfalfa, Custer, Dewey, Grant and Major; King- fisher Lincoln and Logan; Canadian and Grady; Cotton, Jefferson and Stephens; Carter, Love and Marshall; Atoka, Garvin, Johnston and Murray Ponlotoc and Seminole; McClain and Pottawatomie; Noble Osage and Pawnee: Nowata and Washington; Okmulgee and Wagoner; Coal, Hughes and Pittsburg: Sryan, Choctaw, Latimer and Pushmataha- LeFlore and McCurtain: Cherokee, Haskell. Mclntosh and Sequoyah; Adair, Delaware and Ottawa; Craig, Mayes and Rogers; These counties would have one senator eacft: Garfield, Cleveland, Payne, Kay and Muskogee. The plan would give Oklahoma County 19 House members m the 1965 Tulsa 15; Comanche 4; Muskogee 3; Carter, Cleveland, Creek, Garfield, Kay Osage, Payne, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Step- hens and Washington 2 each.
