Up consulate in Montreal after an off in the space Between the wire photo May be difficult to get interested senators behind new rights draft by John Chadwick Washington apr it was no sure thing today that All the senators who want legislation to ensure negro voting rights will line up behind a new draft worked out by the democratic and Republican leaders. The substitute Bill introduced Friday does not include an outright ban on state poll taxes so several of the liberals in the Senate Aren t committing themselves yet. Nevertheless. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield supported by Republican Leader Everett m. Dirksen. Plans to hold overtime sessions next week in an Effort to Speed their substitute toward passage. The new draft differs from the version recommended by the Senate judiciary committee chiefly in that it would provide for a court test of the constitutionality of the poll tax instead of outlawing it. Poll taxes As a requirement for voting in Federal elections were abolished by the 24th amendment to the . Constitution. But they still Are required of voters in state and local elections in Alabama Mississippi. Texas and Virginia. Mansfield said he and Dirksen were convinced largely by the arguments of atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach that an attempt to abolish state poll taxes by Federal Law would raise a significant constitutional question. A indeed it might in the end result in no action a1 All being he said. Mansfield said he thought this and other changes made by the substitute would strengthen the legislation. Dirksen also said the new draft represents real improvements. Appealing for Unity Mansfield said a senators generally trying to go in the same direction must also try to get together on the same Road if their is to be any legislation in the Senate at still there was no Assurance that the liberals headed by sen. Philip a. Hart d-mich., who pushed Over the ant poll tax provision in the judiciary committee would support the leaders. Sen. Edward m. Kennedy d-mass., who offered the provi Sion. Reiterated that he thinks it is constitutional. Ile said the liberals would study the substitute and commented of the Mansfield Dirksen Effort a we ail Are trying to reach the same southerners who contend it violates states rights to fix Miter qualifications on the Federal level continued their attack on the legislation. Speaking of the substitute sen. Herman e. Talmadge d-ga., told a nearly empty chamber Friday a this Hill was conceived by an unholy Alliance of Lawless mob action on the one hand and murder and mayhem on the before taking a weekend recess. The Senate amended the Hill to exempt Arkansas from its terms until the state has a Chance to put a new voter registration system into effect. Sen .1. W. Fulbright offering the amendment for himself and his fellow Arkansas Democrat. Sen. John i. Mcclellan said the people of Arkansas amended the state Constitution last november to provide for a new registration system. Lie called it a straight Forward and free of any discrimination and said it should be Given an Opportunity to operate before any Federal registrars Are sent into the stale. By ii. I. Schwartz ill Pittsburgh api what s ahead for the United steelworkers of America under i Vav. Abel As president a there May be some new faces around but that s about All a said a High Steelworker source today. His comment seemed to sum up Union feeling after Abel was declared president of the million member Union. The Union s tellers reported Friday that Abel Secretary treasurer for 12 years had Defeated incumbent David j. Mcdonald 308.910 to 298.708. Although Mcdonald promised to protest the result it is not expected to keep Abel from taking office june i Union sources pointed out that Abel s election won t halt rapid automation in the steel Industry or alter the growing need for Protection of the Steelworker s Job. Steelworkers already among the highest paid Industrial employees in the nation Are Likely to continue to remain intensely interested in better pensions and More benefits to protect them when Laid off. What change there is sources said May come in the human relations committee the joint Union Industry group that initiated continuous year round bargaining in 1960. In his Campaign speeches. Abel said the committee had grown too important. Most of its eight Union members Are Mcdonald men. He also said that a handful of lawyers and experts had taken control of the Union from the hands of the rank and file. Even if faces change How Ever. The complexity of steel contracts will demand lawyers and experts probably More of them not fewer. At a Victory news conference Abel said. A we will continue to rely on our staff of experts for studies and As for bargaining itself Many feel the Union May be More militant under Abel not necessarily because he is militant but because the men around him Are. Others Point out though that the problems of Basic steel Are demanding longer and longer periods of bargaining. This they feel will tend to tone Down any Militancy. Union men feel that Basic steel is Likely to remain the prime Union interest As Long As nearly half its membership is employed by the big companies. However there is Likely to be a growing emphasis on workers in the lesser industries such As fabricating Independent steel aluminium and cans. These workers have traditionally taken a Back seat to Basic steel and there is a belief that their votes tipped the scale in Abel s favor. Abel himself is an accessible Man. But some feel that the burdens of heading a Union As big As the steelworkers May change this. During the Campaign Abel frequently accused Mcdonald of Quot Tuxedo of spending too much time hobnobbing with men in big business and government Union sources pointed out. However that conferences at the White House Are the natural lot of a steelworkers president one of the strongest voices in labor s higher councils.
