O by Louis Uchitelle at 18 brings Celler Over cuts More travel by John Beckler associated press. Writer Washington it a it a Strong support among House democrats for lowering the voting age to 18 has overcome the resistance of rep Emanuel Celler d-n.y., the proposal s chief foe. Celler is now prepared to seek a House vote on accepting both the 18-year-old vote and an Extension of the 1965 voting rights act earlier passed As a package by the Senate. The 81-year-old chairman of the judiciary committee has not shifted in his opposition to teen age voting but a 5-1 margin among his democratic colleagues. In. Favor of it has persuaded him to drop his Effort to separate the age Issue from the voting rights legislation. Celler s main interest is in passing the Senate version of the voting rights act. The measure retains the essential provisions of the 1965 act under which nearly a million Blacks in seven Southern states have been registered to vote 1,000 victims Celler lost by five votes last december when he triad to get a similar Bill through the House which instead passed an administration backed substitute civil rights Bill readers regard As weaker than the present act. Although a poll of House democrats shows top heavy support for the package the republicans Are much More closely divided with most of them declining to say How they will vote. The1 administration not Only favors its own version of the voting rights act but opposes towering the voting age by Federal statute it believes a constitutional amendment is required to set a voting age limit for All the states. The Constitution gives the states the right to set voter qualifications As Long As they Are not discriminatory. Only four states permit persons under 21 to vote now. Celler who also is convinced a constitutional amendment is needed to lower the voting age Hopes to get speedy enactment of the statute so the 18-Vea r old fires continuing after earthquake Issue can be tested in the it supreme court before this Falls elections in preparation Al for the coming vote a group offt of teen age of Lff a banded together in the youth franchise coalition plans to descend on Capitol Hill As soon As Congress gets Back in action april 6. Coalition workers have been polling the republicans and have found Only 45 who say they definitely will vote for the combined measure. That May not be enough. When the voting rights legislation was up the first time in the House 49 republicans voted against the administration and supported an Extension of the act. But the vote was 208 to 205 against them supporters of the 18-year-old vote think combining their Bill with the Senate version of the voting rights act will give the package enough added Appeal to pull Over some republicans. But a lot depends on How much of a fight the administration puts up. F Razier t.
