Gov. Ernest F. Rollings South Carolina staged a success- ful filibuster that for a time made ever it appear the governors might not only miss their big state dinner Tuesday night, but also their trip! to Independence Hall for a Fourth1 of July meeting with President na- Kennedy Wednesday. On a plea by the host governor, stumbling David L. Lawrence of Pennsyl- vania, that the ambassador from Japan, and, more appropriately, the comedian Bob Hope were on the night's program and deserved some courtesy, the governors fi- of nally gave up the whole thing, and let each governor sign what- civil rights plan he wanted, if any The plan prevailed 32-3. The civil rights business began with a resolution so mild even the Southerners could endorse it. But first Gov. Nelson A. Rocke- feller of New York, then Michi- gan Gov. John B. .Swainson and finally Gov. Man. 0. Hat.'ield of Oregon had a go at putting a few teeth in it In the end they all failed. Hatkield declared he frequently has been on the minority side, but never has felt the need to filibuster. "This Hatfield said, "can only be taken as capitula- tion to a minority on a strong civil rights program In the ensuing confusion, a pro- posal on medical care for the aged also fell by the wayside. It got 19 votes to 14, but failed muster the necessary two-third majority. As expected, the governors kicked another Kennedy plan. They voted unanimously to sup- port, a National Guard any spite of an adminis- tration plea that this is the way to modernize the Reserve setup. The other guests were already at the state dinner, and some of the governors had gone off to put on their white dinner jackets when the meeting ended with choice of a new chairman, Gov. to Albert D. Rosellini, a Democrat; of Washington, Curiously, the governors ed with an hour-long argument over a resolution to bar lions, which, if adopted, headed off this squabble. But the trouble came when, after the mild civil rights pro- posal was presented to the con ference, Rockefeller brought his much stronger amendment. His resolution would acknowl- edge equal rights, regardless of without have the. ra.ce, creed or color, in -housing, employment, public accommoda- tions and education. A.motion to defeat Rockefeller's was beaten, 31-13. Whereupon Gov. John B. Swain- resolu- son of Michigan came up with an wouM even longer amendment which he said would express the feelings of the governors much better. Up to this point, the Southerners fore had been voting quietly But Gov. up Ernest F. HoUings of South Caro- lina got the floor, told his fellow governors that if they had any- thing else to do they had better Intended to talk slsts in adopting civil i do It, because he for a long time. Rollings began at p.m. calmly told his colleagues that if they stayed around to listen they might miss the state dinner sched- uled four hours later. HoUings complained that the ac- last tion in bringing the Rockefeller Swainson amendments be- the conference violated a gentleman's agreement that the moat group would accept the declara- tion previously approved by the! Resolutions Committee. He said if the conference per-' lutions yearly "you may put k and jeopardy the future attendance some governors at this ence." Gov. Buford Ellington of Ten. nessee, who said he had voted futf last year's civil rights resolution; said he's "getting tired of having to restate my position." Gov. F. Ray Keyser Jr. of Ver- tried to get unanimous eon; sent to bypass the civil rights res- olution and proceed to other vati ters. But Gov. Elmer I. Anderson of Minnesota objected.

Low Wednesday STAMFORD The Texas Cowboy Reunion, which has its last two 1962 performances this afternoon and evening, has through the years grown its own set of traditions The ranch outfits always move in, the Flat Top, 6666, Throckmorton and the rest and they're here agan, staging the rodeo and perfoiming m The Hardin-Simmons Cow- boy Band is playing, as it has for every cowboy reunion except three during World War n The chuck wagon food is plen- tiful and costs only a dollar. The cowhands are genuine, the traditions of fine horses and line horsemen are upheld and the Grand Entry is again a thrill- ing thing. Only one really different sight has been noted: A cow pony, standing in the heat peacefully hitched, one rein tied to the handle of a glass door at a liquor-beer store on Stamford's liquid fringe. Outlanders among us should know there's a difference be- tween a cowman and a cowboy bitt you can't tell at a glance which is which. Age and general appearance are not distinguish- ing .features. The lean, leathery fellow in worn pants and shirt, limp hat and dusty boots may own a big spread in Stonewall County or he may just work for wages and keep. It's difficult to tell the cow- man from the cowboy but it is no trick at all to pick oui the cowgirl. Her costume is not only color- ful, it fits. Exactly.

(AP) Two Saskatchewan doctors filed a test case Tuesday urging the courts to overturn the new com- pulsory medical care plan that lias set off a protest strike by most Of the province's 700 active physicians. As the third day of the con- troversial plan and strike ended, many hospitals operating short staffed were forced to limit serv- ice to emergency cases. Most of Regina's'doctors dosed then- -offices -and left signs de- claring they would not resume normal practice until the medical insurance program is scrapped. Two patients flown to this pro- vincial capital from the interior for emergency treatment died shortly after arrival but officials indicated the deaths could not be attributed to unavailability of doctors. Premier Woodrow Lloyd's So- cialist government also came un- der attack from outside the medi- cal profession. In Saskatoon, Hans Taal, chair- man of a so-called keep-our-doc- tors committee, said he planned the to stage a mass march to Regina later this week to protest the medical care plan. The mother of a 10-month-old boy who died Sunday while the parents sought desperately to find medice1, help was quoted by the Toronto Star as blaming the gov- ernment for the infant's death. The baby, believed suffering from meningitis, died before Mr. and Mrs, Peter Derhousoff could reach a hospital in Yorkton, 85 miles from their Usherville home. 'If they had not .forced, the doc- tors to strike, my Carl would be alive the Star quoted Mrs. Derhousoff as saying. The test case against the medi- cal program was filed in Saska- toon by .Drs. W. J. Cranley and M. H. Ma'cdonald They charged provincial government with Unconstitutional interference in the right to practice medicine. They asked each'in per' sonal damages and demanded .hat provincial authorities be re- strained from further implement- ing the act setting up the pro- gram. There was no indication when a hearing for a restraining order wbuid be held. But a writ issued by liie regis- trar of the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatoon gave the de- fendants IS days to enter a de- fense. Named in the suit were former Premier T. C. Douglas, who headed the government when Care Insurance Acl was introduced in the legislature, Snyder Tot Drawns On Family Outing SNYDER The 17-month-oW son of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Loper of Snyder was drowned at Lake J.
