Labor Party
Scores Gain
LONDON LP) — Harold Wil
son’s Labor party scored substan
tial gains Friday in town council
elections, boosting its chance of
ousting the Conservative govern
ment next fall.
With all but a dozen of 336
provincial towns reported, Labor
had gained 233 seats, mainly from
Conservatives and their indepen
dent supporters.
THIS, according to political fore
casters, was enough to guarantee
the Laborites a solid House of
Commons majority in the national
elections due by Nov. 5.
This was the last nationwide
test of electoral opinion before
Prime Minister Sir Alec Doug
las-Home’s Conservative party asks
the electorate for another five-
year term next fall.
Indications were that the bor
ough voting would prove an ac
curate guide to current national
feeling. Party organizers of both
sides reported polling was un-
sually high.

WASHINGTON — Undersecre

Thursday night censured critics of
the Atlantic Alliance who contend
that the structure of the defense
organization must be revised.
Such suggestions, Ball said,
could do great harm and might
reduce the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization to the status of an
alliance “inactive in peace and im
potent in war.”

Amendments Proposed
Behind Closed Doors
* *:
Old Senators
Say Farewell
At Banquet
New officers of the Student
Senate were introduced by
outgoing president Harlan
Roberts Thursday night, at
the Student Senate Banquet in the
Assembly Room of the Memorial
Student Center.
Guest speaker was basketball
coach Shelby Metcalf, who mixed
his usual humor with informative
tidbits concerning the new re
cruits.” “We got just what we
wanted in recruits,” said Metcalf.
He talked about Lenox and Rob
inette, and said that there was not
really anybody that could replace
“But,” said Metcalf, “If we had
to play tomorrow we could move
Stringfellow into Lenox’s place,
and Norman into Robinette’s and
come up with a good team.”
Metcalf praised the spirit of
the A&M student body. “Without
the tremendous spirit of the stu
dents we couldn’t have won the
Southwest Conference.”
Talking about the Utah game
at the beginning of last season,
Metcalf said “Utah has some won
derful sights, but don’t take a
basketball team there. We couldn’t
figure out why a fence was around
the court. We finally figured
that it was to keep us from de
fecting,” said Metcalf with a big
Turning the subject to next
year’s race Metcalf said “the sports
writers say that Tech will win
as they have four of their starters
back.” He started to say that
Tech would have an undefeated
season, but pulling next season’s
schedule out of his pocket he said
with a truimphant grin, “wait a
minute, I see they have to come
to A&M.”
After Metcalf finished his speech
Roberts gave his farewell address,
thanking all the advisors and stu
dents for their help during his
Thomas McConell, outgoing vice-
president of the Student Senate
then presented the old Senators
with Keys.
Wednesday night’s spurt of voting,
the Senate settled back Thursday
to talking about the civil rights
bill while Sen. Everett M. Dirksen
continued to unwrap his proposed
amendments behind closed doors.
The focus of discussions in his
office with Senate leaders of both
parties, Dirksen said, was on how
to head off massive resistance
against the bill’s anti-discrimina
tion measures.
If this could be solved, the GOP
leader from Illinois told newsmen,
the creeping pace of Senate action
on the bill—with debate now in its
50th day—m i g h t be accelerated
The leaders are hoping the
closed sessions might eventually
bring forth a package of amend
ments that would win enough back
ing to produce the two-thirds vote
needed to shut off the measure’s
long-talking Southern foes and get
it passed.
In this third day of the sessions,
Dirksen brought up fewer but
more substantive amendments—11
in all, dealing with the equal em
ployment opportunity commission
title. So far, he said, he has pre
sented 69 amendments.
Friday, Dirksen said, he will un
veil his amendments to the public
accommodations title, the most
controversial in the bill. The GOP
leader has guarded these jealously
for weeks, but always has insisted
there be some changes in the
House-passed provision to bar dis
crimination in lodging places, res
taurants, and places of amusement.
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, the
bill’s floor manager and assistant
Democratic leader, made it clear
there will be no agreement from
his side until Dirksen puts all his
amendments on the table. The
Minnesotan told newsmen that spe
cifically includes those on public

public the 11 amendments to the
