on vote age bill
18-year-old voting age: Nothig
new for Alaska, Hawaii, Ga., Ky.
WASHINGTON (M - Bar-
ring a presidential veto, Con-
gress has p u t the Supreme
Court on a spot by voting to
extend the franchise to 18-
year-olds despite widespread
doubts as to the constitution-
ality of its action.
The doubts extend from Presi-
dent Nixon and the Justice Le-
partment to a broad segment of
the legal community and to many
congressmen, including a member
who played a key role in passage
of the legislation by the House
Wednesday. All contend it re-
quires a constitutional amendment
instead of a simple act of Con-
gress to lower the voting age in
Rep. Emanuel Celler (D-NY),
played a decisive role in passage
of the bill despite a conviction
that the 18-year-old voting pro-
vision is unconstitutional.
In Wednesday's debate, Celler
repeated his misgivings, but said
the overriding need to extend the
Voting Rights Act of 1965 called
for passage of the package.
C~ a U'le t
Detroit attorney Roderick Daane
will become the University's Gen-
eral Counsel, the highest ranking
legal officer, effective Sept. 8.
Daane will replace University
Attorney Edmund Cumminskey,
who will retire at the end of 1970
after 24 years at the University.
Cumminskey remarked that Daane
will be undertaking a job that in-
volves "the broadest spectrum _of
legal questions you can imagine,
including tax, real estate, probate
and student organizations prob-
In taking the position, Daane
will be returning to the school
where he received his A.B. and
L.L.B. degrees in 1952 and 1954,
respectively. Since 1962 he has
acted as Consul for the Nether-
lands, obtaining passports and
handling legal difficulties which
involve visitors from the Nether-
Passage of the proposal in the
face of such doubts is thought by
many observers to be a tribute to
the political power of the youths
and to the shrewdness of Sen.
Mike Mansfield (D-Mont), in tie-
ing the 18-year-old vote to a wide-
ly supported civil rights bill, ex-
tension of the Voting Rights Act.
With that act due to expire in
August, pressure for its extension
was so great the House did not
risk delay by trying to separate
the two parts of the bill.
The doubt is even written into
the proposed law, which provides
machinery for speedy review by
the courts in hopes the issue will
be settled before Jan. 1, when the
18-year-old age limit is to take
The White House still has not
indicated whether Nixon will sign
the bill, but the feeling in Con-
gress is that if he does not, he
would let it become 'aw without
his signature instead of vetoing it.
Supporters of the bill produced
scholarly opinions of their own to
the effect that Congress could
lower the voting age by statute,
but in numbers, at least the
weight of such opinion seemed to
be on the other side.
The precedents of Congress
were also against it acting as it
did. In all cases in which Congress
has extended the franchise--to the
newly freed slaves, to women, to
voters in the District of Colum-
bia and in prohibiting the im-
position of a poll tax-it amended
the Constitution instead cf acting

The action early this week in
Congress to lower the voting age
to 18 is by no means a new
precedent in this country. Four
states, Georgia, Kentucky, Alas-
ka and Hawaii already h a v e
had the voting age requirements
lowered to 18 or 19.
Georgia lowered the voting
age to 18 in 1945 and the man
who signed it into law says that
it is working "wonderfully well."
"There's never been a respon-
sible voice to repeal it," says
former Governor. Ellis Arnall,
the mai who signed the bill in-
In Kentucky's 1963 Demo-
cratic primary for governor,
veteran A. B. "Happy" Chand-
ler took the traditional party
organizational route in his cam-
-paign while his opponent, an
unknown man named Edward
T. Breathitt, cultivated the 18-
year-old high school voters as
well as the college students.
Breathitt won a smashing
victory and by all accounts the
role of young people, who ob-.
tained the vote in this state in
1955, was decisive.
In fact, 17-year-olds were al-
lowed to vote in that state if
they became 18 by the following
Chandler once remarked to
newsmen that he gave the young
people the v o t e and he A was
their first victim.
The minimum voting age in
the country's two newest states,
Alaska and Hawaii, is set at 19.
One of the arguments in fa-
vor of lowering the voting age
is the fact that people in 46
other states are being deprived
of their equal rights.
Opponents of the bill main-
tain that the voting age f o r
federal elections cannot be low-
ered by an act of Congress; they
say that it must be accomplish-
ed through a constitutional
The chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee, Emanual
Cellar (D-N.Y.), is one of those
who supports a constitutional
amendment to lower the voting
age but who opposed the pas-
sage of the bill as an act of
Congress. He urged passage of
the bill however, because the
extension of the Voting Rights
Act of 1965 was added to the
If the bill is not vetoed and
becomes law, it will go into ef-
fect Jan. 1, 1971. It will increase

The action in the House cor-
West Germany this week where
the German parliament, the
Bundestag, gave final approval
to a bill lowering the voting age
from 21 to 18. The bill received
the required two-thirds major-
ity in the 496 member house
and became law immediately.
Also coinciding with the ac-
tion here is the fact that for the
first time in Britain's history,
18-year-olds will be voting in
their election for Prime Minis-
