Negotiations for the disputed By GARDNER L. BRIDGE WASHINGTON ad- ministration's satellite communi cations bill finally broke through the Senate sound barrier Friday and was passed by a 66-11 vote. The measure, which opens the way for the first commercial use of space, now goes back to the House for action on Senate changes. These changes .do not include more than 200 amendments fired at it in a delaying action by Sens. Wayne Morse, D-Ore.; Estes Ke- lauver, D-Tenn.: Russell B. Long, D-La., and other Democratic critics. All were rejected. The bill, which the House passed by a 354-9 vote last May 3, provides for the establishment gratulating each other and op- ponents assuring one another they had fought a good fight. "We can thank God we have a fighter like Wayne fauver said. Long, after listening to some of the speeches on the other side, finally got up and said: "Let's not overdo this good will." Long and Pastore got into one final argument when Long re- marked that be had intended no offense to the bill's backers dur- ing the debate. Pastore hotly recalled one speech in which he said Long had called the bill "just as crooked as a barrel of worms." "Let's not get into personali- regulated corporation to operate this country's part of a global; communications system earth satellites as relay stations. One addition made by the Sen- ate, which must be passed on by he House, specifies that all ihases of the operation "shall be consistent with the federal anti rust laws."

Humphrey charged that the inquiry into his M. A. Hanna Co. nickel contract with the government is politically motivated and constitutes a "stab in the back." The Missouri senator, himself a wealthy man and former industri- alist, said this was an insult to the Senate. When the hearing broke up im- mediately after a shouting match between Symington and Hum- phrey, the latter told newsmen the uproar proved his claim that "They don't dare attack Ike (for- mer President Dwight D. Eisen- hower) direct so they are attack- ing me." Humphrey, 72. honorary chair- man of Hanna, had been sched- uled for a second day on the wit- ness stand before the Senate sub- committee headed by Symington. He described the vast Hanna mining interests before stepping out to join the Eisenhower Cabinet. Symington opened the hearing with a statement objecting to Humphrey's comment on Ihc in- quiry. "Humphrey not only disagrees with Hie figures as to his own and lis company's profits on these con- tracts, but now impugns the mo- tives of the Senate and this sub- ried on largely in the closing days of the Truman administration in have worked for for 55 years1 1952-53. that the bill is not a giveaway. The contract was signed Jan. 16, 1953, four days before Hum- phrey was sworn in as secretary of the Treasury. Bush's objections were joined by Sen. J. Glenn Beall, R-Md. "I renew mv demand for a vote before we Bush said. "I said Symington. "Mr. said Hum- phrey, who had tried once before to speak and been ignored. "Senator said Sym- ington, sarcastically.

Senate passage came after a total of 19 days of furious debate, spread over three months, and after the first successful move in 35 years to lower the Senate's antifilibuster boom. Even after the Democratic and Republican floor leaders won a 63-27 vote last Tuesday to invoke the debate-limiting cloture rule, the opponents continued the strug- gle. Despite the rule limiting each senator to one more hour of speaking time, they managed to stave off a final vote until Fri- day by launching a flotilla of amendments. These were tor- jedoed, singly and in bunches, by :op-heavy majorities. Kefauver and Morse, leaders of the opposition, offered substitute measures of their own to provide 'or government ownership of the irojected communications opera- ion. They were beaten back by votes of 64-11 and 73-13. but is designed to serve the na lion's welfare. Sen. Morris Cotton, R-N.H., paid tribute to Pastore's efforts saying: "His name on this bill guarantees it was drawn in good faith." The final hours of debate de- veloped into a sort of mutual ad- miration society on both sides, with supporters of the bill con Texas Senators Split in Voting WASHINGTON (AP) Texas senators split Friday on the 66-11 vote by which the Senate passed the communications satellite bill.
