A long day marked by a re- sounding clash between two top Democrats ended with the Seriate ecessing at p.m. until noon Wednesday. Sen. Mike Mansfield of Mon- ana, Democratic majority lead- er, tried to end the long wrangle >y proposing that the bill be sent o the Foreign Relations Commit- ee with the stipulation that it be aken up again on the floor next Tuesday. This would have had the effect of shelving the bill for a week. The Senate could have conducted other business in the meantime. Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., and Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-Tenn., who led the stalling tactics against the space communica- tions bill, agreed to Mansfield1! proposal. However, the action required unanimous consent oi the Senate Sen. Barry Goldwater, R- Ariz., registered an objection. In a similar move a short time later, it was Sen. John G. Tower, R- Tex., who raised an objection. As in other Mansfield moves in- volving the filibuster, the com- promise proposal had the backing of Sen. Everett Dirksen, R-I11., and other GOP leaders. The communications bill, which would set up a private corpora- tion to handle space communica- tions such as those made possible by the new satellite, Telstar, has passed the House. Morse and oth- er liberal Democrats contend the government should control space communications.
