WEDNESDAY, JUNK 11, 1047 Senators New FEPC Study BLYTHEVlLLB (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PACE New Yorker Presses For Federal Ban on Racial Discrimination Farm Price Support Program Endangered by Potato Deals WASHINGTON. June n (UP) — Hen. Irving M. Ivcs, K.. N. Y.. today described dlscrlinliinry employ "311; | practices as an" "American fy a " WMlt ' n must be solved. Henestified at the opening of two weeks of Senate Labor Snbcommit- Ire hearings on his bill to forbid discrimination i u employment because or race, religion, color or national origin. The bill had strong support'from Republicans and Northern Democrats, nut it appeared unlikely that an attempt would be made to pass H tills year in the face of already- promised Southern Democratic op- bc position. ' "" Ives said the right to work regardless of race or creed was part of the Sermon on the Mount, the 10 commandment!, the Golden Rule, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. WASHINGTON. June 11. —Chairman August H. Andieseu of the House Food Investigating Subcommittee charged today that j the Agriculture Depar'.iuen!, s poi tato policies are "Jt'opniviiinig t:ic 1 entire farm price su.nx.i'i program." The Minnesota Republican sti.1 that unless the potato price support program Is ariminisl-.-reil wisely this year there is ivcut-.' darger of a domestic potato scarcity ncrit Winter and Spring. Andiesen made the charges as his subcommittee recessej its investigation of last year's potato surplus which cost the uoveriitncnt about 543.000.COO. The subcommittee is seeking ways of preventing such .surpluses in the fuiuv!. Amtrcsen said it seemed o'ld lo speaking of scaroitios at a time when the government, is buying up surplus early potatoes. Hut he said unless the ,1c|)»riment disposes of its surpluses wisely, iwlatops inay, be short i.tier on. "Were . importing ixnatoes Jrom Canada right now,'- he sn'id. "And one of tile big.reasons i:» thai the cent reeout going si'e "And yet. our failure as a na- , government. destroyed 12,- tion to live up to it constitutes the 500.000 bushels of Maine pjtat,o35 Bravest, anomaly In our American ' last fall. Those potatoes could tradition." he said. "We may differ , have been stored and soid .this nmoiig ourselves on how to meet , Spring, mid overcome this so-called American dilemma, but at the same time we must recogni/e that, it has to be met and that it has to be overcome." Ives said anti-discrimination laws could be of the punitive type, the educational type or a combination or the two. He said his bill represented the combination approach and emphasized that it made conciliation mandatory before conipul- (U.P.) ported yesterday that potato pros- IKcls on Juno i were 73 ' of normal. This Is eight pe below last year when crop was harvested. Andresen also critlci/ed the t'.e- purlment for pouring k^roseiie ua surplus potatoes to make ihcm inedible. U. S. Smith, chief of th? Ass!- 1 , culture Department's Fnut and Vegetable Branch, told tlw su!> committe yeslerday that it would wreck the polalo price Mipport program if the department gave surplus potatoes to groups free of charge. The government as a result of action by Congress *i obligated a support iMlato prices a; 90 per cent of parity until Dec. '.',!. 1048. Since potatoes .uc a profitable crop at this price love!, there hns been n sharp , lilt) ease in production. The crop* last year totaled a.COO.CCO bushels as compar"d with normal consumy.Uou of about 350,000,000. As a remit, t'.-e Agriculture Department, to support the price, bought up nv mail-: loans on some 100,000,000 bushels at a cost of $£5,000.000. . Missco Students 3et Degrees or State University linil- ul by . who believes llu' Infants \\vi\- pulled ;n,ni it'lr eilbs by oilier I'hlUI j>iuk':it.s "I'm not sure we're have enough potatoes hrough this crop year." The Agriculture Department iff the same time, there were indications that House Republicans mv,^j^ press for action this year on two other measures opposed by most southerners — proposals to outlaw the poll tax and to make lynching a federal offense. May Brills Bill Up House Speaker Joseph \V. Martin. Jr., said there was "considerable sentiment" for anti-poll lax and anti-lynch legislation. He said he was canvassing other OOP leaders to decide if one or both should be added lo the House calendar t'or this session. Sen. Allen J. Ellcnder.'D.. "La., a member of the Senate Labor Subcommittee, charged that the issue of discrimination in employment was "loaded down with politics" by groups contesting for the Negro vote. He expressed hope thai Iv bill would nol be brought to the Semite floor this year because it would merely "precipitate a lot debate and lengthy argument." Although Ives has denied that his bill was another proposal ;Cor n FEPc — Fair Employment Practices Commission — Ellender said there was "no difference in principle." "It's dressed in n different garment, Uiat's all." he said. The SpPC, a wartime agency established by presidential order, was long a target of Southern criticism before it expired. Because of it. filibusters by Southern senators delayed some appropriation bills. But they succeeded in blocking it only last year when legislation to make it a permanent agency died in both houses. The Tves bill, modeled after the New York stale anti-discrimination la\v, would prohibit firms employing more than 50 persons or labor vmr ions from discriminating against persons because of race, religion color, national origin or ancestry.
