WASHINGTON l Sen. Fus
sell B. I,6ngD.-I.a.), the Sen

up with his southern colleagues
Tuesday to battle against
changing the rules so choking
off filibusters would be easier.

Anderson (D.-N.M.. lie was the
senator who placed Long in
nomination Monday for whip,
or assistant Democratic lender.
At a meeting Tuesday in the
office of Sen. Richard IJ. Itus
sell (D.-Ga.) 15 southern sena
tors decided to wage an all-out
fight to preserve the present
rule under which a two-third ;
majority of senators voting is
required to cut olf debate.
Long said he realizes lie
might be criticized for attend
ing the meeting, after his elec
tion to a leadership post, but
he said that if he did not go, he
could not "be a moderating in
fluence." -'He said that, if he had been
invited, he also would have at

"I don't think it is a civil
rights question any more,"
Long said, adding it now has
been established that debate
limitations can be obtained on
a civil rights bill.
Last year's comprehensive
civil rights measure was passed
after a 15-week Senate battle
in which the two-thirds rule
was successfully invoked for
the first time to break a south
Russell also emphasized this
point in calling it "unfortunate
that southern senators have had
to take the initiative in pre
serving the rule of the Senate"
and preventing what he called
the imposition of "gag rule."
What the Dixie forces are
fighting for, he said, is "to pre
serve the integrity of the Sen
ate as a deliberate body and to
protect the rights of Senate
minorities whatever the issue
"I don't regard it as a south
ern fight at ail," Russell added.
The Georgian, longtime lead
er of the southern senators,
said the r forthcoming battle
"could last a couple of months."
Anderson plans to touch it
off today with introduction of
his ' proposed three-fifths rule.
Some ot the senators associated
with him will seek adoption of
a rule that would permit debate
to be cut off by a majority of
all members, or 51 of the 100
Russell said it has been ar
gued in the past that civil
rights legislation couldn t be
passed under the present two
thirds rule but that "this policy
has been completely destroyed."
