May Support Dixie Revolt Showdown Test Could Come by Late Tomorrow By William F. Arbogast Washington The civil rights fight moved "to the House floor today with the G.O.P. lead- ership apparently ready to side with rebelling Dixie Democrats. An odd set of political circum- stances finds the Republicans risk- Ing a minor break in their own lines in nn obvious effort to 'keep tho fires of revolt ablaze In presi- dent Truman's party. Tho showdown test shaped up over an tintl-dlscrlminatlon rider to the Labor depart- ment-federal security appropriation bill up for debute today und a voto probably Inte tomorrow. Tho issue Is: Shall states that do not give equal educational and Job opportunities to citizens of all rucos. when those opportunities nrc financed with federal funds, con- tinue to receive the money? An appropriations subcommittee which wrote the bill said they should not and tacked on tho rider, or amendment, to that effect. But the full committee overrode the subgroup and by a 25 to 0 vote knocked the proviso from, the bill. Representative Kccfe chairman of the subcommittee and sponsor of the antidiscrimination proposal, told reporters ho would offer it on the floor to glvo the entire House a chnnco to vote. A number ot other Republicans and most northern Democrats said they lire ready to approve It. But tho G.O.P.

This reservo likely was due to the desire not to reveal the con- tents of President Juho PoaMklvl'i ctter to Stalin before the Russlaa cadcr receives it.

Any treaty that Is concluded must be ratified by Parliament. Yesterday, strong-arm men up a mass meeting protesting proposed treaty. Four or five men, described by authorities as communists, suddenly appeared and pushed the speaker iside. They grabbed the micro- phone and announced that the meeting was organized by fascists.
