1 1 SENATOR i
* Vvasjlingion l'o my mind,
ihe procedure of around-the
fclock sessions of the United
locates Senate makes a mockery
bf the legislative process. More
tver, it impairs the dignity and
the prestige of the Senate, not
imly in the eyes of its member
ship, but also in the eyes of thi
i The Lack of Debate By Pro
ponents. One of the strange fea
tures of the Senate’s present sit
uation is the lack of the propon
ents of the many (64 at last
pount) civil rights bills, so-ca!l
fcd, to come forth to the floor
if the Senate and debate their
Tallis. This performance would
be unfortunate even if the nor
£al procedure for bringing lega
tion to the floor had been fol
lowed. It is doubly dubious by
techniques now being used.
'Actually, the Dirksen civil-rights!
proposals are attached to a min
‘or bill, non-related, thus initial
ly resorting to highly disorderly
■ procedure. The subsequent per
formance, the failure to attend
■floor debate by those favoring,
the enactment of this legisla- 1
ifion leads me to wonder whether
• thef civil rights advocates wish
*to debate their proposals in the
'tradition of the Senate of the
Senate Should Delay. I bs
*jjlieve the part of wisdom de
< mands that the House of Rep-
resent.atives should act first on
f. legislation of this nature. Due
f to its lar"e membership and the
| rules under which it operates.
the House has very little oppor
* tunity to correct defective legis
i lation. The Senate with its
* rules has the opportunity for
t adequate debate. Therefore, the
[ Senate should, in the name of
> orderly procedure, delay action
■ until the House can bring out
its bill by mid-March. Why is
the Senate rushing? I do not
, know why the proponents of
; civil rights legislation think
that it is necessary to exhaust
t physically and mentally all

I John Wesley McMillan. Sr.,
prominent retired merchant and
* farmer of Stedman, N. C. died
[ at a Fayetteville hosmtal on
Saturday morning. February 20.
1 after a brief illness,
i The last rites were held from
! the Cokesbury Methodist Church j
at Stedman on Monday after
noon. Dr. Morris L. Husted.i
pastor of the church, officiated. |
He was assisted by the Rev. J.j
R. Regan, pastor of the Bethany i
Methodist Church of the South
River Charge. Interment was
>■ made in the Fisher Cemetery
' at Stedman.
Mr. McMillan was a highly re
garded civic and religious lead
, or of the Stedman community.
His many friends admired his
s nccri.y and straightforward
ness; h s courage and lortitude.
His charity, kindness and gen
erosity toward his fellcw-man
can never be fully measured.
He was a member of the Beth
any Methodist Church.
Mr. McMillan is su»-v'ved by
his, wife, Mrs. Lillie McCall Mc-
Millan; three daughters, Mrs. L.
K. Jones of Cape Charles, Va„
Mrs. Jessie Hall and Mrs. Mel
vin Layton, both of Stedman;
one son,. John Wesley McMillan,

Southern Senators who happen j
to oppose these bills before the
debate really starts and before
the Senate actually knows the 1
proposition with which it will
Minority Rights Trampled—
The only way the argument
against civil rights legislation
can be effectively made is to'
carry on debate on a high
plane, thus affording the Sen
ate and countrv an opportunity
to study the proposals. When
all is said, it is a sad dav in
the Senate when the advocates
of legislation are either unwill-p
ing or unable to step forward <
to debate the issues. A col- j 1
lusive boycott of debate is the ;
worst sort of orderly procedure
and not in the tradition of the
United States Senate. In all my
experience in the House and
Senate I have never experienced
such pressure from ; n impati
ent majority to r*..i over all :
safeguards established for the
protection of the minority.
Southerners In Minority. The
handful of Southern Senators,
can debate on germane issues,
for a considerable length of
time. After all. as I told the i
Senate the other nieht, the total
weight of civil rights bills be-,
fore Congress is fve pounds.
Nobody has yet appeared, at the’
time of this writing, to tell us.
exactly how many ounces ofj
the five pounds thev want pass-;
ed by Congress. In tiie absence:
of committee reports., hearings,
etc., it is reasonable for the
Southern minoritv to expect that
some legislative histerv should
be made in honest debate on
the floor of the United States
