g TUESDAY, JUNE SO. 1964, Lake Charles American Press BY SEGREGATIONIST Black Supremacy Surge Predicted GENEVA PARK, Ont. (AP)- I A Southern segregationist told | an nudiencc of high school stu- i dents Monday that U.S. Negro leaders, emulating the new African nations, have adopted a policy of black supremacy. William Simmons of Jackson, Miss., administrator of the Citizens Council of America, said in the new African states white men have been murdered, shamed and deprived of all fun-! damental rights. He predicted that white citizens of the United States will rebel against civil rights legis-; lation, which he said has robbed ] them of their freedom, I Simmons asserted the 14th I Amendment was originally in-! tended to safeguard property j rights only. Other so-called I rights must be earned, he declared. j "They say we have to inte-, grate to appease world opinion," Simmons told 77 students at a conference on race problems sponsored by the United Nations Association of Canada. "But this world opinion is a manufactured thing. Several Peace Corps members who had been in Africa said the natives there had never heard of America. So much for world opinion." Simmons said Canadians can- not be expected to understand a situation with which they have so little contact. "I believe I am the first Citi-' zens Council representative to I speak in Canada, which indi-! cales that our views are not known to you," he said. "And 1 see that in Canada you have no race problems because you have no Negroes and your Indians are segregated on government reservations." He said propaganda has disturbed and distorted the Noi gro's actual feelings and experience in the South. Southern Negroes are embarrassed and resentful of Northern agitators and missionaries who went to Mississippi, he claimed. "We have no such upheavals as have racked England," he said. "Negroes get a better edu- ation in Southern separate schools than they do In Northern integrated ones, and wo show a remarkable tact and courtesy to our Negro neighbors. Government laws could never achieve that." Robert Gore of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) had been scheduled to reply'to Simmons' argument but canceled his engagement because of the disappearance of three civil rights workers in Mississippi. Bills on Private Schools Debated JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Tlv: Mississippi House and enate today staged a war of nerves over whose private school program should become law. The Senate voted 13-33 Monday against changing its decision to limit state aid to private upils to those in nonsectarian schools. The House voted earlier against limiting aid to those in nonsectarian schools. As it stood today, the House had a Senate-passed bill with the restriction and the Senate had a House-passed bill without such a limitation. The House bill provides up to S185 per year in state aid to private school pupils to apply on their tuition. The Senate, be"-: .-ides restricting aid to those ! not in church-related private; .-chools, cut the state money to $165 per year and required it. r.e matched by S35 in local mon- i. y to be available. Tne Senate Finance Commit;-e has the House-passed com- < panion bill nermitting local gov-! eraaitnts to levy four mills in I property taxes to raise the money to augment the state < grant. Son. Ellis Bodron of' Vicksburg, chairman of the i committee, said his group want-j ed to see how much four mills ! would produce in each county i before acting on the House bill, j Gov. Paul Johnson called the special session to consider the | private school plan as a means i of enabling pupils to dodge ex-1 pectcd court-or d e r e d public ' school desegregation. Johnson said last week it was up to lawmakers whether to accept the House or Senate ver-' sions and he would not interfere, i The House was in recess Mon- ! day waiting for the Senate to decide whether the upper chamber would act on the House- passed state aid bill. The Senate reaffirmed its passage of its own bill and took no action on the House bill. Confusion Arises Over China Crisis WASHINGTON i AP. - There is less Red China war talk in- 5ide the administration than there is outside. This ::-; causing a certain public confusion because the warnings of possible major conflict in the Far East are not supported by information on when, where and under what circumstances the conflict might begin. There is a greater danger than home-front misunderstanding, however, because the Communist leaders in China and River Pollution Action Set By Health Service WASHINGTON (AP) -A government official says the Public Health Service mter.di to move with dispatch to control known tources of pollution of the Mississippi River by endnn.

For them particularly, the central question is whether' they believe what they are being told. The administration is dealing with a fine line between bluntness and bluster in its efforts to get its message through to; the Red Chinese leaders whose actions in the mor/hs ahead could very well bring on the war. ; The difficulty with which Johnson and his associates are i handicapped is that in this summer of presidential politics there is a potential, if not already existing, conflict between [ Johnson's foreign policy needs : and his domestic political con- > cerns, as seen by people close to him. The major foreign policy issue for Johnson in the forthcoming campaign in his opinion is "peace."

Grambling College, $75,000. Southern University in New Orleans, $50,000. Southern University in Baton Rnuge, $100,000. Louisiana State University in New Orleans, $250,000.

These would have provided for $23,000 to print the Louisiana constitution as amended, and $15,000 to complete redrafting corporation laws of the state. IN SENATE VOTE Resolution Knowles Okayed BATON ROUGE (AP) - Sen. Jesse Knowles' resolution to recreate the Joint Legislative committee on Un-American Activities gained 37-2 approval of the Senate Monday and was sent to the House. Sens. J. D. DeBlieux, Baton Rouge, and E. W. Edwards, Crowley, voted against the Senate concurrent resolution. Sen. Deblieux tried without success to amend the bill to take out per diem payments for members of the committee. His amendments were tabled at request of Sen. Harold Montgomery, Doyline, In a 33-4 vote. DeBlieux said, "I certainly don't think we have gotten our money's worth out of this committee." He objected to allowing the committee to have whatever legal and investigative staff necessary. He said the committee spent $8.000 in 1961, $37,000 in 1961-62, $29,000 in 1962-63, and $50,000 in 1963-64. "I can't see," he said, "Where they have discovered all that Mississippi's Mayors Ponder State's Image JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The executive committee of t(ie Mis' sissippi Municipal Association i meets In closed session here to- i clay to discuss the state's racial much un-American Activities." Often, ho said, the committee has concerned itself more with states rights and segregation than with Un-American Activities. Sen. Theodore Hickey, New Orleans, asked whether the committee would be "loaded with deadheads? If it is I am going to vote against it." Sen. Jamar Adcock, Monroe, said he believed the committee served a useful purpose. The governor and lieutenant governor, he said, authorized him to say such committees would not be allowed to abuse their per diem. "I don't believe the people of this state want members of this legislature who do an honest day's work without being paid for it," Adcock said. Sen. George Tessier, New Orleans said he was one of three House authors of legislation which originally created t h e committee. "Under the guise of objecting to a deadhead committee," he said, "The whole purpose of the committee is lost." He felt, he said, that all members of the committee would serve without pay. There has been a lot of confusion, he said, on civil rights and Communism and the basic principle of Americanism. The concept, he said, had been maligned and misunderstood by both friends and enemies. Reponsible legislators were image. The 65-member committee will discuss formation of a caravan to Washington to discuss racial problems with President i Johnson and the attorney gen- leral. j Jackson Mayor Allen Thomp- json said he will attend the i meeting but he wants no part of the Washington trip. "My feeling about the sugges- j tion that 100 mayors from Mis- needed, he said, committee from to keep the going over- sissippi go to Washington to see the President and the attorney general Is that no good can cume of it," Thompson said in a statement Monday. "The President and the attorney general have all the information that they would receive from us. They have the facts and nothing anyone would say to j them wouid change the way they are acting. I certainly will not go to Washington on such a mission." board. At the same time, he said, activities of the committee were needed. Sen. Samuel Brotissard, New Iberia, member of tho committee, suggested the committee be kept in action, ''Whether you keep it on a per diem basis, it doesn't matter." In asking for Senate passage, Knowles said it had been intended earlier to put the committee's functions under the State Sovereignty Commission, but this was changed. First Attack Launched On -Aid MMA President John Scafide, [mayor of Bay St. Louis, said I he favored the caravan idea. i The suggestion was attributed lo Tupelo Mayor James Ballard. I The committee will take up "adverse publicity" and means to "neutralize" the sore-eye we have received from race-relations, Scafide said. Ballard said he could, not see ; how the trip to Washington ; could hurt the state, adding "it seems to be worth the efforts of ; 100 mayors to travel and ex: tract some sort of an agreement ' or understanding." NEW ORLEANS (AP) ~T!«3 first legal attack on Louisiana's First Prince Of Wales Born 1284 financial grants to pupils attending private segregated schools was filed in federal court Monday by the NAACP. The suit, filed in the 5th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals, named the Louisiana Financial Assistance Commission, which administers the grants, several state and city officials and the officials of three private schools here. The suit asked a three-judge court be convened to grant a preliminary and permanent Injunction enjoining the defendants "from continuing to d\$i burse tuition grants or grants in I aid and enforcing the policy, practice, custom and usage of supporting and maintaining a separate segregated school system." s The custwn of calling the eld-1 est son of the British sovereign ; : tiie Prince of Wales dates back to the time of Edward the j First of England. Edward brought northern Wales under his control in 1 1284 and his first son was born ; in a castle in the Welsh district i 1 of Caernarvon. The legend goes that when, the Welsh were murmuring I against the foreign king, Ed, ward held up the baby, saying, : "I give you a Welsh prince, burn in Wales." The firstborn sun of British kings has borne the title, Prince of Wales, ever- 1 public funds into these private schools makes such funds unavailable for use in public schools." Under the system, $360 is paid each school year directly to the student who, exercising 3 "freedom of choice," attends a private, nonsectarian school. Each month the state sots aside |300,000 to pay (or the program. Tha grants go to about 11,000 pupils, most of them in the New Orleans area where public schools were first desegregated in I960. The three schools involved Uj the suit have rejected Negro applicants.
