Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic lead- er, agreed to the move and pushed it along, then an- nounced plans to try to kill the proposal for new rules by means of a motion to table. The situation was set up by an agreement from Johnson to let the senate take up first the proposal to adopt new rules, sponsored by forces which want tighter curbs on long talk. The plan was of- fered as a substitute for a compromise proposal by Johnson himself. The Demo- cratic leader obtained unani- mous consent to go into the proposal immediately, and then announced his tabling plan. Boswell, Okla.
