C. Forr & Sons, Owners "Serving thli *n« for over 20 The Eisenhuwer administration has talked .since 1&53 of civil rights laws but so far has Rent no specific recommendations to Congress. It may do so shortly after Congress returns from its Easter vacation. No matter what is proposed, and no matter by whom, Inside or outside Congress, this Congress like before it Is not likely to pass any new .civil rights laws. Hie reason Is simple: the Southern Democrats will block them. The House, with the votes of many Republicans and Northern Democrats, may pass some civil rights bills before Congress froes home this summer, over the Southern Democratic protests. Debate Limited In the House, where debate is imited, the Southerners, being jutnumbered, can't kill a bill with alk. But nothing approved by the can become law unless the Senate also given its okay. In the Senate debate IK unlimited. There outnumbered Southern 3emocrats can filibuster to death! any civil rights legislation passed y the House. That has been the story in Confess for years. Both parties, at their 1956 .contentions, will probably promise in heir platforms civil rights laws n the next four years, and prob- ibly with about as much success s in the past. Civil rights actions under the Roosevelt. Truman and Eisenhow- administrations have been the esult of presidential orders where [ovcrnment agencies, Installations ir contracts were concerned, or >f Supreme Court rulings for the mtion ns a whole.

May Stymied A House Judiciary subcommit- ee has just approved two bills— >ne to make lynching a federal iffense and another an omnibus 111 containing a number of civil ights protections— nnd has asked he lull committee to npprove. The bills may gel stymied there. f they get out, and are passed v the full House, they stilt face he Senate roadblock. President Eisenhower hns urged Congress to establish a special ommission on civil rights. He uggested this be a bipartisan ra- inl commission with subpoena owers. Most Southern Democrats; re chilly about It. Over the wcek.cnd Eisenhower idicnted thnt If Congress doesn't ct on his Idea, he may do some- ling on his own, perhaps con- tdcrlng a proposal by Gov. Leroy :qllfns of Florida. Collins suggested Elsenhower all a conference of Southern gov- rnors and attorneys general to evlev the "South's present problems In the whole field of racial elatlons."
