Post Crescent, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL. XLDC No. 60 36 A, B MONDAY, 1959 AMOCtATCD FWB WIU U3MVICE Senate Defeats Majority Rule to Curb Filibusters Rejects Plan Offered by Sen. Douglas Washington The sen- ate today voted down a pro- posal to let filibusters against civil tights bills and other measures be cut off by vote of bare majority of the sena- tors. The vote was 67 to 28. The defeated proposal was offered by Sen. Paul H. Doug- las (D-I11) in behalf of a coal- lition of northern and western senators fighting a formula sponsored by Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson Douglas plan would have permitted a majority of the senate, or 50 of. the 98 members, to halt a filibuster after 15 days. Under present rules, it takes the votes of 66 senators, or two-thirds of the membership, to shut off de- bate and force an issue to a vote. Johnson's proposal, which has the support of other sen- ate leaders of both parties, would allow filibusters to be choked off by two-thirds of the senators present and voting. Another Proposal With the defeat of the Doug- las amendment, its supporters planned to throw their strength behind an amend- ment under which filibusters could be choked by three-fifths of the senators present and voting. They insisted that this amendment, proposed by Sen Thruston Morton (R-Ky) stood a real chance of adop- tion. However, senators back- the Johnson compromise were confident that it woulc prevail. During the debate Johnson told Douglas tartly he believ- ed confidence that the out- come of the fight over the rules "will be a fair reflection of the will of the senate and the will of the nation." Johnson said senators who want debate limitation- by majority vote, as well as those who are opposed to any change in the existing rule, can work their will if they can get a majority of their colleagues to go along with them. He is sponsoring, along with senate leaders of both parties, a compromise under which filibusters could be shut and issues forced to a vote by two thirds of the senators present and voting. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R- the senate minority lead- er, also appealed 'for approval of the compromise resolution. He described it as the reason- able course to follow. Johnson told reporters be- fore the start of the session he saw some hope for a final showdown vote on the whole issue before nightfall. j Congregation fliocks Pastor In Controversy Whitehall The Rev. Richard Buege was confirmed as pastor of St. Paul's Lu- theran church here Sunday. Members of the congregT- tion voted 90-17 to retain Pas- tor Buege. A committee of Wisconsin Lutheran Synod leaders ear- lier this month informed Pas- tor Buege that he could not remain a synod member un- less he conformed to the group's rules. The latest controversy con- cerning Pastor Buege involv- ed his extending the right to vote on church matters to women in the congregation, contrary to synod rules. The synod committee also had ob- jected to Pastor Buege's com- munion "fellowship" with Lu- theran clergymen of other synods. The term-connotes as- sociation in religious activi- ties. Mother of 8 Seized in Kidnaping; Baby Alive Pastor Buege said that the congregation is still a part of the Wisconsin Synod but could be dismissed by the church council. The meeting was attended by 118 of the 191 congregation members. Eleven abstained from voting and six couples withdrew from membership after the vote. Two synod "of- ficials met with dissident cou- ples outside the church.

In the final speech before the vote, Douglas called John- son's proposal "a meaning- less gesture" and said "it's effect will be to fool the Amer- ican people into thinking they are getting something when they all are getting nothing at Johnson interrupted to say he never had called it a com- promise. He pointed out that it had 40 sponsors. The senate met at 10 a.m., two hours early, in an effort to get the dispute out of-the way.

Snow lay over all Britain and almost lill of the conti- nent. Britain, whipped by blizz- ards in the north and floods fn lowlying East Anglia, seem- ed to have caught the worst of it. Abandoned cars, trucks and buses were scattered on roads up and down the coun- try. Near Braemore an expect- ant mother and four other oc- cupants of a stranded bus hiked to safety across 2J miles of snowdrifts sometimes six feet deep. Snowplows battled their way along the Perth-Braemore road to rescue 60 skiers trap- ped all night in a resort.

Gay lord Nelson summoned principal state department heads at. an early hour today to explain that he meant what he said during his campaign when he proposed extensive reforms in the management and organi- zation of key state services. The department heads arose about dawn and were assembled in the executive office at a.m. The new governor turned up, a scant week after his swearing in, to outline his plan for extensive state administrative reorgan- ization and management changes he described as in- tended to make state opera- tions more efficient and more responsive to elected offi- cials including the governor and the legislature.

Expenses Rise He noted that for the first time state departments during his term will spend substan tially more than a billion dol lars a year, and that recentl; state expenses have been ris ing at a rate of million minary report he demanded four major reforms, includ- ing: 1. The consolidation of half a dozen legislative services into a new department of leg islative services that would remain exclusively under the control of the legislature. 2. Consolidation of major business and finance services into a new department of ad- ministration and finance. 3. A self survey program oi maagement audits, under the direction of the governor's of- fice, to review continuously the efficiency and economy of state operation. 4. What he called a program type budget process "to per- mit a more intelligent plan ning and supervision of state spending."

Since October, walkouts have disrupted flights by East- ern Air Lines, Trans World Airlines, Capital Airlines and American at various times. Among major domestic lines, only United Airlines was un- affected. After the 22-day American strike ended, the company im- mediately started partial ser- vice. A full schedule of flights was expected tomorrow. Boosts and Retroactive Pay The Air Line Pilots associa- ion, which called the strike against American, estimated Jie settlement would net its pilots a 15 per cent pay increase and a total of mil- lion in retroactive pay. The contract dates back to August, 1957. A union spokesman said the captain of a Boeing-707 jet, which American plans to atari using later this month, could earn a year. A Convair captain, the spokesman added could earn a year. The old contract" would have given him a year. American, before the strike began Dec. 19, had offered a pay increase of 10 per cent, the union spokesman said. The new contract also pro- vides a third pilot for jet crews. Current piston plane crews comprise two pilots and one flight engineer. The strike cost an estimated loss of million to the com- pany, its suppliers and their employes.
