WASHINGTON - (P) - Pres-
dent Eisenhower's proposed con-
stitutional amendment to lower
the voting age to 18 was killed by
the Senate yesterday.
After sharp debate, in which
Southern senators charged the
amendment would be an invasion
of states' rights, the measure lost
on a 34-24 vote.
While 34 senators supported the
proposal, their number was far
short of the two-thirds majority
of those present and voting, which
is required for approval of a con-

In all states except Georgia,
where 18-year-olds may vote, the'

seven Northern Democrats voted

In his discussion of the relation-
ship between Christianity and sex
last night at Canterbury House,
the Rev. Wilbur Schutze, assist-
ant rector of St. Andrew's Episco-
pal Church, emphasized that,
"Christianity is essential to mean-
ingful sex relationships."
"In the pagan world," he con-
tinued, "sex is raw and uninhib-
ited, but to use a person without
regard to his or her feelings is to
flout God's will."
Teaching children that all sex is
wrong by nature can do as much
damage to them as indulging in
promiscuous actions, the Ann Ar-
bor minister informed members of
the Canterbury Club in their an-
nual spring lecture series.
Rev. Schutze advised that the
exact relationship between couples
during the courtship period should
be decided between them, basing
their decision on their own stan-
dards. "However, I do believe," he
