Pepper Plans Fight For Senate Rules to End Filibustering Poll Tax Repeal Bill Appears Headed for Sidetrack Monday (Earlier Story on Page A-l.) With the poll tax repeal bill headed for a sidetrack Monday after a successful filibuster, Senator Pepper, Democrat, of Florida announced he will begin a fight to abolish filibustering in the future by trying to change the Senate rules. Although the poll tax debate is continuing today, the fight ended yesterday for all practical purposes under an agreement to lay the bill aside if the Senate on Monday re fuses to adopt its cloture rule.

It was reliably reported today that cloture will fail by substantial margin. Two Changes Proposed. Looking to the future, Senator Pepper said he will introduce two proposed changes in the rules: One, to allow a majority in the Senate to bring any bill, motion or point of order to a- vote at a definite time after not less than 10 days of debate. # 2.
