Southern Senators
Seek to' Override
Bible Reading Ban

Early Congressional committee
action was sought by southern
senators who, with the backing
of a group of Republicans, in-
troduced three proposed Con-
stitutional Amendments to set
aside the Supreme Court decis-
ion ban on prayer and Bible
reading in public schools.
Senator Strom Thurmond and
Senator Olin D. Johnston, both
South Carolina Democrats,- each
introduced such an amendment.
The third was introduced by
six Republicans. The key ele-
ment of the three proposals
was that no school supported
by public funds in whole or in
part should be prohibited from
holding Bible reading or non-
sectarian prayer as long as pu-
pil participation is voluntary.
While such measures were
considered certain to run into
strong opposition in both
Houses, they were expected to
get strong support in the Senate
J-Lcliciary Committee, headed
by another southerner, James
0. Eastland, Mississippi Demo-
crat. Hearings are expected
either in the full committee or
in the constitutional amend-
ments subcommittee which is
headed by Sen. Estes Kefauver,
Tennessee Democrat. The pro-
posals must first be approved
by both Houses and then be
ratified by three-fourths of the
states to become amendments.
