DAY BRIGHTENER Women: people who can talk their way out of everything except a telephone booth. WASHINGTON (AP)—A show-dowrn on shutting off the Senate’s marathon civil rights debate was postponed today after agreement was reached to vote on 3 important amendments the first of next week. Senate leaders delayed the filing of a petition to invoke the Senate’s debate-limiting cloture rule when no objection was raised to voting on the three amendments. The cloture petition would have led automatically to a vote Tuesday on whether to continue or shut off debate. Sen. Bourke B. Hickenlooper, R-Iowa, acting for a group of Republicans, had proposed de laying that action pending a vote on the amendments. His proposal required unanimous consent, which was given. The agreement cleared the way for a weekend break in the long debate, and the Senate recessed until noon Monday after a session of less than two hours. Sen. Mike Mansfield of Montana, the Democratic leader, said the petition to limit debate now will be presented on Monday. That will force a showdown vote one hour after the Senate meets on Wednesday. Under the agreement entered into, the Senate will vote first on an amendment to require jury trials in all criminal contempt cases arising under the civil rights measure except for the section aimed at discriminatory denial of voting rights. Sen. Thruston B. Morton, R« Ky., who proposed the amendment, told newsmen he was confident it would be adopted, and Mansfield said he would not be surprised if this was the case. A similar amendment offered by Morton previously was defeated by a single vote, 46-45. The agreement reached by the Senate provides for four hours of debate, beginning at 2 p.m. Monday on Morton’s latest jury See CR VOTE, Page 14 Gas Pact Is Rejected CLEVELAND (AP) — The head of a 2,400-member union says employes will walk off their jobs at midnight Monday unless further talks with East Ohio Gas Co. result in a settlement on a new contract.
