When GOP senators held a secret caucus and Hickenlooper of Iowa complained that the civil rights bill trampled on the rights of white people, Lyndon knew it. He also knew that Senator Dirksen of Illinois complained that the administration had ample power to enforce the voting rights of Negroes without passing a bill. He also knew that only two Republicaucus. Quicker-than-the-eye techniques Lyndon also practiced seine mysterious techniques that few people knew about. For more than a week before, he was holding the short end of every straw poll. GOP leader Knowland had 38 Republican, votes in his pocket. Senator Douglas of Illinois, leader of Northern Democrats, had nine Democratic votes. This was why Johnson began stalling for time, asked the Senate to consider important pending bills and appropriations. He knew if the vote was held then, he was licked. But one night before the crucial roll-call, Lyndon and Sen. Dick Russell, leader of the Southern forces, huddled in the Senate cloakroom. “I am ready to vote,” reported Russell. “We’ve got 50 votes.” Though Russell did the reporting, it was Johnson who had won over the votes. On the final roll-call, Russell and Johnson did one better. They got 51. Senator Douglas came through with his nine liberals against them. They stood firm against the jury trial amendment. RENEW To the Texas Observer 504 W. 24th St., Austin Name: Address: City: One year, $4; 2, $7.50; 3, $11 But the Republicans didn’t. Lyndon had pickpocketed five Republican votes from Knowland. He virtually took them out of the GOP leader’s pocket and Knowland didn’t know it until it was too late. How did Johnson do it? The story requires more space and will be told next week. Merry-Go-Round When the crucial civil rights voting was over, Senator Dick Neuberger of Oregon remarked to Johnson’s assistant, Bobby Baker: “That was the greatest Little Red Riding Hood act I have ever seen. Lyndon kept Eastland and Stennis in the wings and Kefauver, Church, and O’Mahoney before the footlights. All you could see was the bosom, not the fangs.” … One thing that influenced Church to propose his two jury trial amendments was the reading of speeches by the late Senator William Borah, also of Idaho, who, during debates on the Norris-La Guardia act, favored trial by jury in labor injunction cases. Borah is revered as the greatest of Idaho senators. Any young senator would want to follow in his footsteps.
