Advocate (Newspaper) - August 17, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 102 TELEPHONE HI S-HSl Hope Seen To Break Talkathon Liberal Fight Seen Slowing WASHINGTON (AP) Lead- ers revived hopes Sunday of a midweek break in a (alk mara- thon by liberals which would bring the Senate to grips with the legislative apportionment issue. Action on the for- eign aid authorization bill has been stalled while liberals o[ both parlies have fought an at- tcmpl to attach to it as a rider a proposal to delay court or- dered apportionments oC both houses of state legislatures on a population basis. The liberals, who started their talk last Friday, were reported to have fewer than 10 willing to speak. Leadership lieutenants figured Ihey might run out of speeches by Wednesday, with a possibility of a vote on the issue thereafter. Compromise Plan Tlie liberals have contended that a proposal by Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, concurred in by Demo- cratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, would involve an un- constitutional invasion of the au- thority of the judiciary. Sens. Jacob K. Javils, U-N.Y., and Eugene J. McCarthy, D- Minn., came up with a com- promise Sunday they said in a statement they will present as "an alternative to the Dirksen- Mansfield amendment which should solve the dilemma in which the Senate now finds it- self." sense MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 1964 Established 1849 14 Perish in Accident SHOESHINE GIRL Lillian Reyes is only 12, but she has a thriving business as a shoeshine girl on a street corner in New York.

In Ihe House, the Rules Com- mittee luis approved a much more sweeping measure that would prohibit federal court ac- tion on legislative apportion- ment.
