PAGE EIGHT ALEXANDRIA DAILY TOWN TALK, ALEXANDRIA-PINEVILLE, LA., MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1963 Civil Rights Stand Seen Marring J.F.Ks Popularity By Barry Schweid WASHINGTON AP) - A!ty. Gn. Robert F. Kennedy fays President Kennedy probaKy has lost some popularity because of his espousal of civil rights legislation but will be re-elected in 194 nonetheless. "Any time you get into a controversy and a deep and bitter controversy such as this is, and vhere there is a large percentage cf people in a section . . . opposed to the action that is being taken by the government, ... the President is going to lose popularity and administration will lose pop-clarity." the Attorney Genera! said Sunday. He added in a radio and television interview that while the administration had made no attempt to measure the political effect of its civil rights measures '1 have heard of other soundings that have been taken wtiich indicate that the President has lost a good deal of his popularity because of this effort." Still, the attorney general said, his brother and others in the administration are committed to the civil rights package sent to Capitol Hill last week "and we are going to do all that we can in the executive branch of the government to have it passed." At the same time, the attorney general sought to discourage a massive march on Washington by pro-civil rights forces while the legislation is being considered. Kennedy said that while he has "great sympathy" for pickets, parades and demonstrations aimed at correcting grievances, "Congress should have the right to debate and discuss this legislation without this kind of pressure." Today, assistant Senate Democratic Leader Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota plans to add to the Kennedy program a bill to establish a fair employment prac tices division in the Department of Labor. Southern Democratic Senators have tentatively scheduled a meeting to marshal their forces for an expected filibuster against the Kennedy program. A pro-civil rights Republican, Son. Kenneth B. Keating of New York, pledged on a taped radio-television program Sunday that he will make another effort to modify the rule which requires a two- thirds majority of those voting to stifle Senate debate. In other developments on the civil rights front: Before leaving for Europe Saturday the President conferred at the White House with civil rights leaders and reportedly questioned the wisdom of a mass demonstration in Washington. However, Negro leaders indicated it would be carried out if the legislation was blocked by a filibuster. Kennedy called Saturday for renewed efforts to assure equal rights to Negro servicemen and their families in neighboring communities as well as on military bases. He made public an initial report by a five-man civilian com- Science Shrinks Piles New Way Without Surgery Stops Itch Relieves Pain Star Ywfc. N. T.

First Girl in Space Gets a Rousing Welcome Prom CommunisT women opportunities MOSCOW (LTD Cosmonette Valentina Tereshkova and space partner Valery Bykovsky received a rousing welcome today from 2,000 women gathered in the Kremlin for a communist-sponsored international women's congress. Miss Tereshkova. the 26-year-old parachute enthusiast who last week became the first wom an In space, beamed happily as delegates from 119 countries including the United States greeted her with rhythmic handclap-ping. The ladies showed their approval of Bykovsky by electing him a member of the congress presidium. He became the only man to participate in an official Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev is right in the middle of things as Russia's boy and girl spact team gets a "flowery" welcome in Moscow. Valery Bykovsky is on the right and Valentina Tereshkova is on left. mittee studying the problem and said discriminatory practices "are especially inequitable and iniquitous when they inconvenience and embarrass those serving in the armed services and their families." The President signed an executive order extending the power of his Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity to permit halting federal financial help on pro jects of a state, local or private nature on which the employer practices discrimination. Previously, the committee's authority was limited to federal employment or employment on direct federal contracts for construction. Chairman Enanuel Celler of the House Judiciary Committee said he was keeping "a watchful eye" on federal judges who delay de cisions in civil rights cases. The New York Democrat, whose com mittee has authority to institute impeachment proceedings against federal judges, added in a televised interview: "There have been too many instances of unconscion able delay in hearing and deciding Unusual Telescopic Sight, Fingerprint Were Chief 'Clues for FBI in Miss. Case MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - One telescopic sight out of 15,000 and a single clear fingerprint led diligent FBI agents to a Greenwood, Miss., man now charged with killing Negro leader Medgar Evers. Evers, Mississippi field representative of the NAACP, was felled by a sniper's bullet at his Jackson, Miss., home shortly after midnight on the morning of June 12. Karl Dissly, special agent in civil rights cases." Sen. Mike Monroney, D-Okla., questioned the constitutionality of Kennedy's legislative proposal that all privately owned public ac commodations be desegretated under the commerce clause. How ever Monroney said in a state ment Saturday that he supported the broad aims of Kennedy's civil rights proposals. charge of the Memphis FBI office which conducted the 11-day investigation, gave this chronology: The FBI was called in by Jackson police shortly after the shooting. Their first clue came from a 30.06 Enfield rifle of World War I vintage found at dawn near the murder scene by Jackson police. A six-power Golden Hawk telescopic sight mounted on the weapon yielded one good fingerprint. It was given to the FBI. Agents located the American importer of the Japanese made sight. He had imported 15,000 such sights. Five had been sold in Mississippi all to a Grenada gun dealer. The FBI checked them out. Each had been traded by the original owners. Some had changed hands three or four times. Eventually, all but one were found. Missing was a sight traded in and disarmament The Soviet foreign minister said today Miss Tereshkova and Bykovsky will meet the world press in a news conference tomorrow at Moscow University. Soviet propaganda media are using Miss Tereshkova as evi- May to Byron de La Beckwith, 42, a gun fancier from Greenwood, Miss., 97 miles north of the slaying scene. Agents went to Beckwith's home last Friday night to question him about his gunsight. Had he traded it? Beckwith refused to talk. The FBI's Washington laboratory compared the fingerprint on the murder weapon with prints from Beckwith's World War II Marine Corps records. They matched. Agents returned to Greenwood at 5 p.m. Saturday but Beckwith was gone. Later that night the FBI was contacted by Yerger Moorhead, a Greenwood lawyer and relative of Beckwith. Moorhead asked would the FBI consent to a meeting in the Greenwood city attorney's office if he could arrange it? The FBI agreed. The meeting was held. Beckwith was arrested at U p.m. dence of the wi vomen in a communist system compared to the West where, Soviet authorities maintain, millions of uomen are 'downtrodden." Miss Thereshkova whirled around the earth 43 times in a Soviet space ship during a three-day night last week. She and Bykovsky who set a space record of 81 orbits in five days where given a tumultuous welcome in Moscow over the weekend. On top of Lenin's mausoleum. Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev interrupted a triumphal speech to steal a kiss from Miss Tereshkova. "See, see," he said mischiev ously, "I have kissed Valentina before all these thousands in Red Square." The space couple were presented gold medals representing the hero of the Soviet Union and Order of Lenin awards and then dropped out of sight It was rumored they were spending time yei-terday at Khrushchev's country home together with members of their families.
