repassed yesterday a proposed
constitutional amendment that
would provide for settling -ques-

The measurem was approved by
a roll call vote of 65 to 0 after
Sen. John Stennis (D-Miss) pro-
tested Monday's voice vote pass-
age with only nine senators on
the floor.
The proposal was sent to the
House, but no action on it is ex-
pected in that chamber at this
session of Congress.
The amendment would permit a
President to nominate a vice-pres-
ident when a vacancy occurs in
that office. The nomination would
be subject to approval by a ma-
jority vote of both branches of
The proposal also would per-
mit a vice-president to take over

majority of the cabinet, inform-

Supporters of the measure said
they expect its approval by the
Senate, even in the absence of
House action this year, should
give it added impetus in the next
session of Congress.
Senate Republican leader Sen.
Everett M. Dirksen (R-Ill) yester-
day backed a proposal of Demo-
cratic leader Mike Mansfield (D-
Mont) to give legislation on pres-
idential security top priority when
Congress reconvenes in January.
Dirksen said in an interview
that quick action in the waning
days of this session on a single
bill to make it a federal crime to
assassinate a President or vice-
president "might mean we would
have to do our work all over again"
next year.
A White House committee on
presidential safety-set up Mon-
day to consider the broad recom-
mendations of the Warren Com-
mission-plans to get started soon
on drafting proposals for congres-
sional action early in the new ses-

In its report the commission
said there were deficiencies in se-
cret service preparedness for Pres-
ident John F. Kennedy's visit tc
Dallas. The commission called for
"eoniplete overhaul" of the serv-
ice's advance detection practices
and closer liaison with the Fed-
eral Bureau of Investigation and
other agencies.
Mansfield said that new securi-
ty measures should be "one of the
first orders of business" when Con-
gress reconvenes.
Several bills to make it a fed-
eral crime to kill a President or
vice-president are pending before
the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The committee may act on an-
other bill-introduced by Mans-
field and Dirksen--to provide Se-
cret Service protection for the Re-
publican presidential nominee, Sen.
Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz) and for
the Republican and Democratic
vice-presidential candidates, Rep
William E. Miller (R-NY) and Sen.
Hubert H. Humphrey (D-Minn).
The legislation, if enacted, would
extend such protection to all fu-
ture candidates for those offices.

The Democratic presidentia
nominee, President Lyndon B
Johnson, has the protection thai
goes with his office.j
The Warren Commission called
for a drastic overhaul of the sys-
tem of guarding the President and
said that legislation making the
murder of a President or vice-pres-
ident a federal crime is needed tc
avoid the "confusion" it said sur-
rounded the entry of various gov-
ernment agencies into the Dalla
In a separate interview Mans-
field said that since the presiden-
tial panel will be weighing these
questions, "it would be the bet-
ter part of wisdom" to await its
suggestions on "a broad new bill."
The commission criticized the
failure of the FBI to alert the
secret service that Lee Harvey Os-
wald, a one-time defector of known
pro-Marxist leanings, was work-
ing in a building along the route
of the Kennedy motorcade.
And thetcommission, while em-
phasizing that there was no evi-
dence that agents at the scene did
less than expected of them, chided
nine agents for drinking and stay-
ing up late the night before -
breaking the rules of the service.
But Dirksen said that "not-
withstanding all the allegations
about some of the Secret Service
being up late the night before,
there was nothing on which Os-
wald could have been detained
and they could do no more than
keep him under surveillance."

Beeston, England. He lashed out yesterday at the Labor Party's stand on Britain's nuclear forces. He
claimed that the party's policy of dependence on the United States would open Britain up to "nuclear
blackmail.' Home's Conservative Party favors an independent nuclear deterrent.
Home Attacks Labor Party's Policies

LONDON W-)-Prime Minister
Alexander Douglas-Home yester-
day asserted the opposition Labor
party would leave Britain power-
less, exposed to nuclear blackmail
and at the mercy of protective
Spokesmen for the Labor and
Liberal parties, who favor phasing
out Britain's nuclear arsenal, im-
mediately challenged the Con-
servative leader's statement.
The Laborite defense specialist,
Denis Healey, accused Douglas-
Home of "nuclear jingoism." Ad-
dressing a Yorkshire rally, Healey
said the Prime Minister objected
to labor plans for placing the
country's fate in the hands of an-
other nation. Yet the Conserva-
tives had wanted Britain to fed-
erate with the foreigners of the
six Common Market countries.
Liberal leader Jo Grimond hit
at Douglas-Home's argument that
Britain's international standing
depends on possession of a nu-
clear force.
'Not True'
"It is not true," Grimond told
a London meetting, "and it is a.
direct incitement to every other
country to try and acquire weap-
ons if this was their only way of
making their voices heard in the

Britain's fate would be in the
hands of "another nation"-mean-
ing the United States--if Labor
abandoned nuclear weapons.
"In today's conditions," he said,
"navies and armies would by
themselves be powerless to move
in the face of a nuclear threat."
He also claimed Labor's defense
plans would lead to a reintroduc-
tion of the national draft, which
most Britons dislike.
The clash over defense policy
came as the tempo increased in
the campaign moving toward the
Oct. 15 election.
Science Minister Quintin Hogg
-the former Lord Hailsham-
backed up Douglas-Home's charges
at a Liverpool news conference.

"Britain has a vital role to play
in America, Europe and the Com-
monwealth in negotiating peace-
ful solutions of international prob-
lems," he cited. "We must not
be reduced to the status of an
American satellite."

the Far East, where priests are in
short supply. This is not the case
in the United States and American
