Advocate (Newspaper) - May 7, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 363 TELEPHONE HI 5-MSI VICTORIA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, MAY 7, 19G4 Established IMS 32 Cents 2 Changes Defeated in Rights Bill Sponsors Win Major Test WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate, afler 43 days of talk, defeated Iwo amendmenls lo Che civil rights bill Wednesday night in a dramatic series ot roll calls that produced a ma- jor test of strength. Both amend- menls were opposed by the bill's sponsors. The first rejection was a change proposed by Sen. Thrus- lon B. Morton, D-Ky. It would have provided for jury (rials in all contempt of court cases aris- ing out of lhc bill. Tho final vole defeating it was 4645, which had (he effect of confirming an earlier roll call o n the same amend- ment. Two oilier parliamentary votes on il intervened. .Demos Solid The second amendment de- feated was offered by Sen. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky. He wanted to require jury trials in criminal contempt proceedings stemming only from Ihe public accommodalions and fair em- employment sections of (he bill. It was crushed 74-19. Demo- crate senators lined up solidly against it except for Sens. Al- bert Gore, D-Tcnn.; Frank J. Lauschc, D-Ohio, and Lee Mel- calf, D-Monl. Under Cooper's proposal, con- tempt cases growing out of sec- tions of the bill dealing with vot- ing rights and integration ol public schools and public facili- tes such as parks and play- grounds, a jury trial could be provided al the discretion of the court but it would not be man- datory. South Ailacks Southern senators attackec Cooper's amendment even (hough they had supported Mor ton's. They called it discrimina lory in providing jury trials for some but not for others. The long freeze on action wa cracked under an informa agreement between the Senate' leadership and Southern foes o the measure. II pointed to a re alization of predictions by tin bill's sponsors that their owi jury trial proposal would even tually be accepled. A vote orf the leadership pro posal could be a long way or soon depending ou many parliamentary roadblock Ihe Southerners want to bring into play. No Votes Expected But no votes are ''expectec Thursday or Friday while erol senators accompany Presi dent Johnson on visils to thei states in the. Appalachia region.

The defeated amendment was offered by Sen. Thruston B. Mor- ton, R-Ky., It would have pro vided for jury trials in all con- tempt of court cases arising out of the civil rights bill. Tiiis was the confusing scries of voles: Senate first rejecled the amendment 45-45.
