York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON The first definition of filibuster in Web sters unabridged dictionary is as follows An irregular mili tary adventurer esp one in quest of plunder Farther on down the fine print lists a fili buster as a member of a legis lative body who prevents a vote by the extreme use of dilatory tactics The plunder that Southern Democrats have been able to extract by practicing the Senate filibuster is the plunder of a pre ferred position in Southern po litical economic and social life In its most virulent form the plunder is a negative the habitual denial of the right to vote to great numbers of Ne groes NOT ONCE IN the nations history has the Senate been able to end a Southern filibuster on a civil rights measure the word applies both to the person who practices dilatory debate and to the debate In 1938 after 29 days of debate the Senate finally laid aside an antilynch ing bill because it could not bring the issue to a vote despite an overwhelming majority in favor of the bill Between 1942 and 1948 South ern filibusters defeated four separate attempts to pass the perennial antipoll ax bill The cloture rule was as useful to end the debate as a

for the first time in history the Senate is in a position to impose cloture on a Southern filibuster against civil rights legislation WHEN THE Southerners were at their peak of power they had a sure claim to 22 votes from the old Confederacy together with an equally sure sprinkling of Democratic senators from the border States and a handful of Western Republicans who on oc casion took advantage of the filibuster themselves They also had the advantage of the un written rule of logrolling on economic issues Southern votes were essential to the conserva tive Republicans and they could in turn demand a quid pro quo on civil rights This was the binding mortar of the famous coalition Today the 22 hard core South ern Democrats from the 11 states of the old Confederacy Coad decides to campaign
