Republicans in the South Da- ning the poll tax as a condition kola Senate complained that un due pressure was applied from Washington to speed up action. President Johnson had tele- phoned the state Democratic chairman, John Engel, on be- half of the amendment. The measure had been' at the bottom of the Senate calendar, but minority Democrats suc- ceeded in having it pushed up to the top. While formal certification cer- emonies probably will be held here later, they are only a for- mality arranged by the General Services Administration. No fur- ther legal action was necessary to make the amendment effec- tive after South Dakota com- pleted its ratification. No Action Required Neither President Johnson nor Congress was required to take any further action in the ratifi- cation process. The amendment provides that the right to vote in any primary or general election for president or vice president, or for senator or representative in Congress, shall not be denied because of the failure to pay a poll tax or any other tax-. Only five states Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas and Virginia now make poll- tax payments a requirement for voting. State Elections Unchanged Adoption of the amendment will not bar these states from continuing to require voters in state elections to pay a poll fax, since it applies only to federal elections. But whether this will be administratively feasible re- mains to be seen. The Virginia Legislature, an U-s- Gen. Robert F. Kennedy for a settlement of the Malaysian crisis. Sukarno vowed continued hos- night, right after Kennedy left ticipating ratification of the anti-poll-lax amendment, al- ready has taken action designed to offset its effect, in part at least. The new Virginia law, In ad- dition lo retaining the state's poll tax for state elections, provides that anyone wishing to vote only in federal elections must file a certificate of resi- dence six months in advance. May Cut Number The requirement for doing this, like the requirement for paying a poll tax, is expected to cut down on the number of voters. The Virginia law already is under attack as unconstitu- tional, but it could be the fore- runner of similar action by the othe poll-tax states. In Alabama, Mississippi and Texas the poll tax has to be paid by Feb. l to vote in the next election, in Arkansas by Oct. 1, and in Virginia six months in advance of an elec- tion.
