In Test Vote
WASHINGTON, July 16 — uPi —
Supporters of "civil rights" legis-
lation won the first test vote
the house today, 151 to 103.
The vote came on a technical
question — whether to limit debate
on the bill, which southern oppo-
nents have promised to hamper in
every legal way, to eight hours or1
to two days.
The southerners fought for a
limitation in terms of hours. This
would have given more effect to
delaying tactics such as repeated
roll calls since lime spent on roll
calls would not be counted.
However, the house, on a teller
vote, knocked down this proposal
and then quickly adopted the two-
day rule sought by supporters of

Asked To Tell
PARRIS ISLAND, S. C., July 16
—04*1—'The marine corps was serv-
ed today with a demand to pro-
duce the results of an opinion poll

The demand was made by the
defense in the court-marital of
Staff Sergeant Matthew C. McKeon,
the 31-year-old former drill in-
structor who led six marines to
their death in a tide-swept marsh-
land last April 8.
After the request a somewhat
startled courtroom heard the law
officer. Navy Captain Irving N.

mandant, General Randolph McC.

ed with the defense making a bid
to sever for later trial all charges
relating to drinking.
McKeon, a former drill instructor
from Worcester, Mass., is charged
with manslaughter in the April 8
drowning of six marine recruits
under his command. Other charges
accuse him of oppression of re-
cruits. possession of alcoholic bev-
erages and drinking in the pres-
ence of a recruit.
