Security Council Passes Resolution
Condemning Cease-Fire Violations

By The Associated Press
UN Security Council, meeting
urgently to deal with fresh vio-
lence in the Middle East, last
night unanimously condemned
violations of the Egyptian-Israeli
-ease-fire and demanded an end
to fighting in the Suez area.
The resolution, offered as a
stopgap compromise between com-
peting resolutions put forward by
the United States and the Soviet
Union, also expressed regret over
the casualties and property dam-
sge from the recent violations.
SSenate Unit
Passes Civil
Rights Bill
WASHINGTON () - The ad-
ministration's civil rights bill was
approved by the Senate Judiciary
Committee yesterday by a 7-5 vote
after escaping narrowly a series
of efforts to alter it.
The administration was able to
produce a committee majority
with the arrival of Sen. Hugh
Scott (R-Pa) from England on a
military flight arranged by the
White House.
The bill-designed to protect
Negroes and civilrights workers
from violence and threats in ex-
ercising f ederallyguaranteed
rights-was sent to the Senate
where it faces a possible filibus-
ter if Southern opponents rally
enough Republican support.
Senate Fight
Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr. (D-NC),
sponsor of a substitute bill which
n the committee shelved 8 to 7 in
favor of the administration ver-
sion, said he will take his fight to
the Senate floor.
Senate Republican eader Ev-
erett M. Dirksen supported Ervin's
proposal in the committee.
The administration plan would
provide criminal penalties for in-
juring or intimidating a person
exercising specifically listed fed-
eral rights or because of race,
color, religion or national origin.
Rights Defended
These rights include voting, at-
tending public school, serving on
a jury, employment, participating
in federally aided programs and
use of public accommodations and
such common carriers as railroads
and buses.
The minimum penalty would be
$1,000 fine or a year in jail. If
bodily harm is done the penalty
would be 10 years or $10,000, or
in case of death life imprisonment.
A Judiciary subcommittee had
approved 5 to 1 Ervin's substitute,
which would provide the same
penalties but would not require a
showing of racial, religious or
other discrimination.
Federal protection would be ex-
tended to all citizens regardless of
race, religion or national origin.
The White House, anticipating
a. close vote at Wednesday's ses-
sion, had sent word Tuesday to
Scott, who has been in England
lecturing at Oxford University.
Ervin Amendment
Ervin amendments rejected by
8-7 votes would have:
-Provided protection for the
constitutional rights of American
-Made it a federal crime to
interfere by violence or threats
with a person's employment or
with his going to and from his
-Prohibited a labor union from
fining a member for refusing to
participate in a strike.
-Required any punishable act
of violence or intimidation to be
sufficient to constitute as assault.
Ervin said the bill as it now
stands "merely spoken words be-

come a federal crime."
Before sending the bill to the
Senate, the committee rejected by
7-4 votes amendments that would
have extended its protection of
troops and National Guardsmen
engaged in maintaining law and
order during civil rights demon-
strations and prohibit crossing a
state line to incite a riot.
dir. James Whale, 1931
The original, with

The council was called into ses-
sion Tuesday night at the request
of Egypt, which accused Israel of
a "new and premeditated flagrant
aggression" for its shelling of the
city of Suez earlier in the day.
Fires still raged last night at the
ruins of two major oil refineries
hit during the attack.
Both Egypt and Israel blamed
the other for starting the shooting
in the Suez area but reports of
UN observers on the scene failed
to pinpoint the responsibility.
The council resolution reaffirms
the "necessity of the strict ob-
servance of the cease-fire resolu-
tions" adopted by the Council last
June during the six-day Arab-
Israeli war.
It further demanded that the
nations involved "cease immedi-
ately all prohibited military activ-
ities in the area and cooperate
fully and promptly" with UN peace
Not Authorized
But despite heavy pressures, it
stopped short of authorizing Sec-
retary-General U Thant to name
a special representative to seek
peaceful solutions to the complex
Middle East controversies, as
many members have proposed. It
also took no other substantive
action that might make a start
toward a permanent settlement.
Appeal for Peace
The secretary-general, speaking
after the vote, made a strong
appeal for a stronger UN peace
operation along the Suez Canal
"in view of the number and ser-
ious nature of the breaches of the
He asked specifically for an in-
crease from 43 to 90 the number
of UN observers along the canal
and a doubling of the number of
UN observation posts. There are
now nine.
He also requested four small
patrol boats for UN observers to
use in the canal and adjacent
waters and four small helicopters,
with operational and maintenance
personnel, for aerial observation.
He said that this would increase
the mobility of the UN observers
Thant suggested in addition to
these steps that body armor to
protect the upper torso be provided
for the observers, who he said
"have on several occasions been
caught in exchanges of fire be-
tween the two sides."
Compromise Resolution
The resolution was worked out
in consultations among the 10
non-permanent members of the
15-nation council. It was offered
as an alternative to rival resolu-
tions submitted Tuesday night by
the United States and the Soviet
The Soviet Union called for
condemnation of Israel, repara-
tions for -the damage caused by
the Israeli shelling of the city of
Suez and Israel's strict observance
of the cease-fire.
The U.S. proposal would con-
demn "any and all violations of
the cease-fire," insist on scrupu-
lous respect for the cease-fire and
ask the governments concerned to
issue categoric instructions to all
military forces to refrain from all
Chief S. O. Adebo, of Nigeria,
the only speaker at the morning
meeting, appealed to the council
to avoid an immediate vote on
either proposal and to allow time
for a search for a compromise.

ate rejected yesterday by a vote
of 48 to 39 a proposal to cut fed-
eral spending in the current fiscal

Senators then took up another
amendment, which would order a
cut of nearly $2 billion.
