talk in Senate WASHINGTON AP The problem before the Senate was whether it has too much talk and too little action After several hours of talk Friday about a plea they curb their meandering oratory the senators quit for the weekend without taking any final action Unlike the House the Senate has no rule of germaneness re quiring its members to stick to the point during debate This lack of restraint some times turns debate into talk of many things of shoes and ships and sealing cabbages and kings It can also be used by a minority group to delay and sometimes block legisla tion To remedy this 31 senators have sponsored a bill to change the rules It would in the words of its chief sponsor Sen John O Pastore DRL require the senators to stick lo the pend ing business for three hours of each deys session Sen Hugh Scott RPa told the Senate he is for it although be considers the proposed rule relatively harmless It is like dropping a single drop of oil on a turbulent sea he declared Its a faint flick er on the part of the Senate that it ought to get about its busi ness How anyone can oppose it I dont know said Pastore Republican leader Everett M SAME Dirkson is one of those who op poses it He contends it could shackle the Senate and be the beginning of the liquidation of the deliberative nature of this body To soften the opposition Pas tore agreed to modify the rules change so that it would not pre vent a senator from offering a nongermane amendment to a pending bill and then speaking on the amendment But he cautioned if you of fer a nongermane amendment youve got to be germane to your ungermane amendment This modification was accept ed But there were not enough senators present to have a final vote on the rules change itself and it was put off indefinitely There is little reason to be lieve thai the Senate will re form itself said Scott who called last years 12month ses sion a monument to frustra tion unemployment in the coal indus try On her first official trip as

comparison Mrs Johnson an swered Id like to be as good as she was and I have no feel ing whatsoever that I am Mrs Johnson is going to look at the work being done by the Area Redevelopment Adminis
