Advocate (Newspaper) - August 20, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 105 TELEPHONE III VICTORIA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, Established IBIS Districting Bill Passes House Vote Blow Struck Upper Court WASHINGTON (AP) The House passed Wednesday night a far-reaching bill thai would strip the federal courts of juris- diction over apportionment of 'State legislatures. The vole was 218-175. The legislation aimed at blocking redistribution of seals in both houses of state legisla- tures ordered by the Supreme Court on an equal population basis now goes to the Senate. iMildcr Proposal A filibuster is already under way there against a milder pro- posal originated by Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, the Re- publican leader, on the same subject. But the Senate bill would only delay the court-or- dered reapportionment. An underlying issue in flic fighl is rural vs. urban conlrol of the legislatures. In a scries of rulings, the Su- preme Court has held thai fed- eral courts have (lie authority lo step in and direct the reappor- tionmenl of the legislatures where necessary and lhal the upper as well as (he lower chambers of these bodies must provide representation on the basts of population. Power Display Most of Ihe upper chambers have given rural areas equal! representation with more popu- lous areas. The House hill was introduced! by Kcp. William M. Tuck, D-! Va., and sped lo the tloor in an impressive power display by Rep. Howard W. Smith, D-Vai, chairman of the Hides Commit- tee. Smith invoked a little-used House rule to snatch it awav 'Of 32 Cents Threat to Goldwater Causes Airport Switch Connallj MILLION iBarry Says All the Way Johnson Family Foreign Aid I For LBJ Holdings Listed Majo Issue Hole Uni'lear I WASHINGTON (AP) Tlie'biised iut a more emisi fortune of President Johnson approach which il said his family totals 'ami has more limn with OlTtM-s To Pay KorTVDcbuU- IN OrERATION Union Carbide's jjer year Stymie, unit al ScatU'ifl is now in operation, Plant Manager R.
