Both sides agreed to tacklel
through subcommittees such mat-

Senate Votes
To Fill Post
approved yesterday a constitution
al amendment which providesf
method for filling the office c
vice-president when a vacanc
occurs, as is the situation now.
The proposal now goes to th
House wherc there is no chanc
of any action on it this session.
Sponsors of the amendment saic
however, they hope the Senat
vote would give the plan a boos
for favorable action next year b
both branches. Then, it would sti
require ratification by at leas
three-fourths of the states to be
come effective.
Establish Method
The Senate acted by voice vote
Only nine Senators were presen
and all appeared to say "aye." Sen
Lee Metcalf (D-Mont), presiding
said that in his opinion the neces
sary two-thirds had voted for it.
The amendment provides tha
when the office of vice-presiden
is vacant, "the President shal
nominate a vice-president whC
shall take office upon confirma-
tion by a majority of both house
of Congress."
On the question !of disability
the amendment states that if y
President declares he is unable. t
discharge his duties, they shall b
turned over to the vice-president
If a disabled President refuse
to step aside, the vice-president
could take over by transmitting to
Congress, with the concurrence
of a majority of the heads of
executive departments or such
other body as Congress may desig-
nate, his written declaration that
the President is unable to dis-
charge the powers and duties of
his office.
In either eventuality, the Presi-
dent could resume his office by
notifying Congress that no fur-
ther inability exists.
Could Force Congress
However, the vice - president
could force Coiigress to decide this
issue if he advised the legislators,
with the written concurrence of
a majority of the heads of the
executive departments or such
other body as Congress may by
law provide, that the President
was unable to serve properly.
In this situation, if Congress by
two-thirds vote of both branches
decides the President cannot
handle his office, the vice-presi-
dent would continue to serve as
acting President. Otherwise, the
President would resume his office.
The proposed amendment is the
outgrowth of a lengthy study
which began soon after the assas-
sination of President John F. Ken-
nedy last year.
Sen. Birch Bayh (D-Ind), chief
sponsor of the measure, pointed
out that the problems involved
have been studied for many years.
But he said Kennedy's death
"made dramatically evident" the
need to find a solution.
Bayh said the experience of the
ast year has convinced him "there

ng of urgency to solve this prob-

Congress to await the recom-

of the Warren Commission.
"There is considerable work to'
