passage “more doubtful.”
Two 'Seeeks ago, - during the
fight for the anti-lynching bill in
ti e House, M^lon reported in
his column that Senator R«Fbcrt
P. Wagner, of New York, co-spon
sor 0* the anti-lynching bill in
the Scaate, had tdfd House^ lead*
ers for the bUl that if they paas-
ed it he felt sure it would pjksfl
the Senate. /
Now it appears that in -^the
desperate fight to win votes for
the change in the supreme court,
votes ^are being
over by a promise that if the
ponents of the anti-lynching bill
will vote for the court plan, the
court plan supporters will agrree
to block the anti-lynching bill.
Workers for the anti-lynching
bill could not verify this proce
dure, as no Senator, naturally,
vnould admit it, but there ii^' a
very great possibility that some
thing of this sort may delay the
anti-lynching bill if tte support
