Advocate (Newspaper) - June 14, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 38 TELEPHONE HI 4-1461 VICTORIA, TEXAS, SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 1964 ZttahlUhed ISM U.S. Visit Scheduled By Inonu Parley Due Chi Cyprus WASHINGTON (AP) Prime Minister Israel Inonu of Turkey Will begin conferences in Wash- ington with President Johnson on the Cyrpus crisis June 22, the White House announced Sat- urday. It is expected that Prime Min- ister Georgo Papandreou of Greece will be invited to meet separately with Johnson on the same topic, although nothing has been said about this officially. The Inonu visit grew out of this week's mission to Greece and Turkey by Undersecretary of State George W. Ball. To Talk With LBJ Inonu will arrive in Washing- ton on June 21, the White House said, and his consultations with Johnson will begin the next day. George E. Reedy, White House press secretary, said he did not know how long the Johnson Inonu talks would continue. The United Stales has been deeply concerned about an armed clash between Turkey and Greece over Cyprus, where Greek and Turkish Cypriot sare feuding. War Unthinkable Ball, holding a news confer- ence here Friday, said he hac emphasized in talks with Inonu and Panadreou that war be tween Greece and Turkey. NATO allies, would be unthink- able. Inonu was invited to meel with Johnson after the President last week launched new efforts to cool off the Cyprus crisis. At Friday's conference Bal said there has been "enormous pressure within Turkey for in tervention with Cyprus." Quashed Invasion According to some accounts Johnson last week persuaded In onu to abandon plans for a Turk Ssh invasion of Cyprus. Although the invasion threa seems to have receded, Bal characterized the Cyprus situa (ion as still dangerous. Reedy declined to say wheth er Papandreou has been invited to meet with Johnson. His re- luctance to reply was to reflect the fact that Papan dreou has yet to decide whethe to make the trip. Not Side Stepped A newsman suggested fha the Ball mission and the forth corning Inonu visit indicated the United States was sidesteppin the United Nations and taking a unilateral approach toward th Cyprus dilemma. Reedy said he didn't thinl that assumption necessarily fa lowed. He said the United State stands ready to pursue every avenue of peace, equity and jus ticc. President Johnson met Inoni during a visit to Turkey whei he was vice president in 1962 Inonu last visited Washingto for the funeral of Presiden John F. Kennedy last Novem ber.

The Victoria County delega- :ion at least will be on the ma- jority side in whatever c o n- roversy develops, having been nslructed by the county con- vention to vote under the unit rule in support of Gov. John B. and lo dedicate its ef- forts toward Ihe nomination ol President Lyndon B. Johnson al Ihe national convention In At- lantic City. The old familiar situation at the state convention Tuesday will find conservative Democra- tic elements led by Gov.

On Occasions His Foe, Shivers Backs Johnson Advoeile Autiln Bureau AUSTIN A powerful, one- time foe of President Lyndon B, Johnson will be in the John- son corner, and back in the Democratic presidential fold, this fall. He is former Gov. Allan Shiv- ers, who three times has op- posed Johnson in support! n Republican candidates for pres dent. In an exclusive interview, Gov. Shivers said: "I intend to support Johnson. I think he is doing a good job." Shivers and Johnson differed in 1962 and 1956, when Shivers, as governor, supported the Elsenhower-Nixon ticket while the then senator was support it the Democratic ticket. They dl fered again la I860, when Solv- ing dlf- ers supported Nixon and Lodge against Kennedy and Johnson. Their classic battle came in 1956, when they crossed politi- cal swords, and TV networks. While this Is going on, the lib- eral-labor group will be holding i banquet of Its owr n the Rice Hotel downtown with U. S. Sen. Ralph Yarborough as the guest of honor. The circumstances surround ng Tuesday's Democratic con vention are considerably differ- ent, but the cast of characters s about Iho same as Ihe one which performed during Ihe lasl ilay presidential year conven .Ion al Austin in i960. At that lime, the then U. S Sen.-Lyndon B. Johnson was in Ihe position of having lo hol( complete control over Ihe dele- gallon selected to represent Tex as at the national convention In Los Angeles to have a chance of making any showing agalns Sen. John F. Kennedy. But Sen. Yarborough and hi liberal forces had refused U take a stand in support of LBJ Active oppostion against John son was being led by Mrs, R.D national convention. Johnson won that fight over Shivers, and headed the delega tlon to the national convention. But bad the last won when he helped EUenhower and Nixon carry Texas that (all for the second time.

Acting under a one-hour-per- an debnle limitation imposed an unprecedented action last Wednesday, the bipartisan Icad- consistently rallied 2-1 larglns against amendment Her .amendment. The process had an almost lechamcal rhythm of introduc- on-roll call-rejecdon. Carefully usbanding their lime, the outherners made little effort to ipport with oratory their fore- oomed efforts to shape the measure to a form more nearly cceptable to them. Minor Changes Some very minor changes e accepted with the acqule- ence of the bill's managers. Before recessing after a 4- our, 45-minute session, the Sen- te buried eight amendments on oil calls and killed another on parliamentnry technicality. It adopted throe clarifying amend- ments by voice votes. In all, the chamber has dis- >osed of 51 amendments, 45 since cloture was Imposed. The House passed bill was irst offered In tho Senate March I but tho voting process did not icgin Iti earnest until the Sen- ite on Wednesday Imposed clo- ure for the first limb in a civil rights controversy. By Wednesday Progress since then brought iredictlons of passage by this iVednesday from Sen. Everett U. Dirksen, the minority leader rom Illinois, and from Sen, Flu- lert H. Humphrey, D-Minn., the Jill's manager. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D- Ga., leader of tho Dixie safd ho considers action by Wednesday unlikely but con- ceded the measure probably will bo disposed of by the end of the week. The Senate plowed along like this: Rejected, 69-1G, an amend- ment by Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N.C., to eliminate the section on voting rights. Welfare Exemption Rejected, 57-29, an amend- ment by Sen. Olin D. Johnston, D-S.C., to exempt child welfare and adoption services from the section providing for cutoff of 'edcral funds to programs In which discrimination Is prac- ticed. Johnston said about mil- lion in federal funds la used an- nually to aid states In these fields and argued that racial and religious criteria are Inher- ent in such procedures as adop- tion. But Sen. John 0. Paslorc, D- R.I., acting floor manager for the measure, said Johnston was conjuring up imaginary dangers and "no one Is going to force any family to adopt a child."
