Advocate (Newspaper) - June 19, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 43 VICTORIA, TEXAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 18 Cents Vote Due Today On Rights Bill Final Passage Is Expected WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate talked its way Thursday night toward expected passage Friday of the civil rights bill, with foes of the measure con- ceding defeat and predicting the House also will accept the com- promise package. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D- Ga., leader o! the, Southern Forces which battled against the bill since March 9, told the Sen- ate that House acceptance of the measure has been arranged and added with a note of sar- casm: wlU then go to the Presi dent to be signed into law with great fanfare, ceremony, pomp and circumstance." Early Recess After 29 senators had made their final speeches on the measure during the day, the Senate recessed at p.m. than had been ex- 11 a.m. Friday. Leaders said they had been unable to persuade as many senators to get their'speeches delivered Thursday night as they had.hoped and that a survey showed about four hours of spceehmaking remained Friday. They estimated that final pas- sage would come between 5 and 6 p.m. Friday. Longest Debate A highlight of this 82nd day of the Senate's longest debate in history was the not unex ed but politically significant an- nouncement by Sen. Barry Gold- water of Arizona that he woulc vote against the mos sweeping civil rights measure since Reconstruction days. Goldwater, who has enough committed delegates to the Re- publican National Convention to win the GOP presidential noml nation if he can hold them, sai< he had hoped to vote aye bu declared "I cannot in good con science do so." He said he could "wholeheart edly support this excep for the sections banning dfs crimination in places of publi accommodation and emplo; ment. These, t he said, "fly the face of the'Constitution." The Arizona senator said he is "unalterably opposed to dis crimination or segregation" o any basis and reached his dec sion aft e r much conscience searching. But he decided, Goldwate said, hiat the bill's prohibitio would require "creation pf fe'deral police force of mam moth proportions" and could de yelop.an "informer psycholog in great areas of our nationa life."
