Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-Tex.)
called on the House yesterday to
accept the Senate's version of the
civil rights bill.
But he left the door open for
a compromise.
Rayburn, leader of the Demo-
cratic majority in the House, said;
that while he is for the Senate
bill as it stands he would' be will-
ing to limit the terms of its con-
troversial jury trial amendment.
His statement definitely im-
proved the chances of the House
and Senate getting together on
civil rights legislation which Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower
would be willing to sign.
President Eisenhower opposesJ
the Senate's jury trial, amend-'
ment as a danger to, the power of
federal courts to enforce their or-
ders in injunction cases.
Administration sources say he
would veto any bill so amended.
House GOP Leader Joseph
Martin of Massachusetts de-
manded that the Senate's version{
be rejected.
The Senate attached the

would authorize the attorney gen-v

assets of $300,000 when he de-

NEW ORLEANS (P) - Tropical
storm Bertha, no longer a hurri-
cane, moved inland last night
and was crossing the path fol-
lowed by its murderous sister of
six weeks ago, Hurricane Audrey.
G. L. Allen, forecaster at the
New Orleans Weather Bureau,
said Bertha apparently was head-
ed in the direction of Lufkin in
east central Tex".
Allen said Bertha was crossing
Audrey's path near Cameron, La.,
about 7 p.m.
The Weather Bureau's 7 p.m.
bulletin located the center of Ber-
tha about 20 miles south of Lake
Charles, La.
The bulletin said the highest
tide reported along the central
Louisiana coast was five feet and
the highest wind from a reliable
source was 65 m.p.h.
The storm was moving north-
westerly about 12 m.p.h. The bul-
letin said hurricane warnings
would remain displayed from Gal-
veston, Tex., toVermilion Bay La.,
and storm warnings on the east
Louisiana coast.
Earlier, tides of five to six feet,
more than four feet above nor-
mal, were predicted for Galveston
and Sabine Pass, Tex., while less-
er swellings of three to five feet
were forecast for the central Lou-
isiana coastline.
Camheron Sheriff O. B. Carter
estimated about 500 persons were
in th6 city doing rebuilding and
rehabilitation work when-the first
warnings of Bertha came. He said
about 95 per cent were evacuated
by nightfall Thursday.

A-Construction Project
Wins- Approval byHouse
WASHINGTON UP) - A $337-million atomic-construction bill won
House approval yesterday after being altered to meet Republicai,
objections that it was designed originally "to promote the growth
of public power."
The bill was passed by a 382-14 roll-call vote after Republicans,
with some scattered Democratic help, had knocked out authoriza-
tion for two experimental reactors and an order requiring the Atomic
Energy Commission to build reactors for public power groups.
The two prototype reactors, which would have cost an esti-
mated $55 million would have been pwned and operated by the AEC.
One would have been a natural uranium, gas-cooled prototype
as distinguished from present reactors using more costly and scarcer
refined uranium. The other would have been a plutor ium recycle re-,
actor designed to develop use of plutonium as a fuel instead of as
a bomb component only.
Democrats on the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee said
the prototypes were necessary if the United States is to'keep in the
forefront in the atomic field and prepare for the atoms-for-peace era.
Republican committeemen, headed by Rep. W. S. Cole of New
York, said they would be a waste of money. They said the AEC
doesn't want or need the reactors and predicted that if bunt they
would eventually be used to provide power in competition with pri-
vate industry. /
