Advocate (Newspaper) - August 21, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119tli No. 106 TELEPHONE HI S-HSI Showdown Looms on Districting C? Senator Plans Force Taclic WASHINGTON (AP) Sen Strom Thurmond, D-S.C., an- nounced Thursday he will try to force a Senate showdown Fri- day on a House bill that would strip Uie federal courts of juris- diction over legislative roappor- lionment. The House passed the bill, 218- 176, on Wednesday night and Thurmond said he was informed the measure will be delivered officially to the Senate on Fri- day. When it arrives, Thurmond said he will object lo Ihe usual procedure of referring it lo a committee and seek to force a vote on the issue. He noted this was the parliamentary tactic used to force direct Senate ac- tion on the civil rights bill, which lie opposed. To Delay Action Thurmond said his objection will delay Senate action until Aug. 31 when the Senate recon- venes after next week's Demo- cratic National Convention in Atlantic City. N.J. An objection by a single sena- tor can hold a bill in Iho Senate and force a showdown later on sending it to a committee. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois, author ot a controversial but less drastic reapporlionmenl rider now before the Senate said he sees little likelihood of Senate acceptance of the House measure. Dirksen contended that even if Thurmond succeeds in holding the House bill on the Senate cal- endar, it could not be called up for action without help from Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, who is a cosponsor of the Dirksen rider.

Halleek referred lo Dirksen's proposal as "half a loaf" and said he might settle for it if the Senate balks at the House bill.
