Charles Weltner, 64, the Georgia Supreme Court chief justice who ended a promising congressional career rather than support segregationist Lester Maddox for governor, died of cancer Monday at his Atlanta home. He fought Georgia's notorious county-unit system, which gave rural votes far greater weight than those from large cities, and was one of a handful of Southern congressmen to vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He is best remembered for his withdrawal from his re-election campaign for a third term in Congress in 1966 rather than run on the ticket with fellow Democrat Maddox.
