PACK TWELVE Bi,rrnEvrLLB (ARK.y COURIER NEWS Lifting of Arms Embargo Urged Democratic Plot-form Writing CommitU* R«c«ive* Requests PWLADttPHIA, July 9. (UP) — The Democratic platform-writing mmmittee wa* told today that Ihe arms embargo to Palestine must be | lifted to permit the Jewisli i>eop!e i to defend themselves. | Judge Louis E. Levinthal, Phila- ] delphia, speaking for the American ' Zionist Emergency Council, told ihe committee, "Israel must be en- ib'fd to deienri iUelf should Arab sggression be resumed against it." Ijevmtha.l's statement was pre- pard for delivery to the committee before it was announced that, Israel was back on a war basis. Israel can defend itself "only If rhe embargo on arms is modified— a step which no fair-minded person can oppose and which we hope t'nlfi convention will- favor," tie .said. Prof. Henry Pratt Fail-child, eo- chairman of the American Council for a Democratic Greece, asked the committee to adopt a plank favoring withdrawal of American Civ ; l and Military Officials from Gieety. FAirchild charged that the administration supported a royalist j Greece "contrary to American traditions and to the maintenance of world peace," The committee planned to hear foreign affairs and labor witnesses today and begin drafting the (jlat- lorm tomorrow.

Myers of PR vania, chairman of the drafting committee, said he anticipated no fight over the labor plank. But lie declined to ' predict whether thfl group would recommend refill of the Tan-Hartley act. Favor Middle Ground Policy Other cr-mmiltee members said the probably would follow A middle-of-the-road policy o;i both labor and civil rights -tin: hottest issiift faced by the committee.' On the labor plank, Myers said: 'We'll be able to get together without much trouble. There's not too deep a cleavage." James B.

A few committee members—willing to comment Bilt not to be quoted—said they did not think the group would recommend repeal ot the Taft-Hartley act although it will be sharply criticized. A plant calling for repeal is ready ior consideration. The Democrats are faced with the problem of appearing to repudiate either President Truman or Democratic senators and members of Congress on the Issue. A major- it)- of the Democrats in Congress voted to help the Republicans override the presidential veto. Myers was asked what cjfeel a threat by Guy R. Brewer of the National Partisan Committee for Civil Rights Legislation would have. Brewer said it Ihe Democrats "pussy-footed" on thij issue us the Republicans did. the Negroes would iupport a third party. "I don't think anything can hap-. pen by threatening the committee," Myers told reporters. "I don't think it wil! influence their views at all." To tts* ISM Hatfwm for Starter Sen. Scott W. Lucas of Illinois, a member o! the committee ,sa::l the group probably will start drafting a civil rights plank with the 1944 platform as a basis. Some Southerners said the l!m plank would be acceptable to them. Others want a pledge of states' righl.s control over racial problem's added. Lucas said he hoped the committee would be able "Io work out something to satisfy all concerned." This appeared to be the intention of other members. Sen.

The convention will meet Monday. It is split wide open already both on the candidate and the platform. The resolutions committee sitting on the roof garden of the Bellevue-Slratford Hotel is handling the civil rights problem ,i s iliough It were a hot rivet. Com- iniltee members won't, even discuss the subject with witnesses for fear of starting an argument, which would spotlight the dispute which goes to the very foundations ot the party. S«h. John J. Sparkmun of Alabama listened to some of the committee testimony and expressed the opinion that a strong civil rights plank in Ihe platform probably would cause a Southern bolt. Mayor Hubert Humphrey of Minneapolis remarked to questioners that thero would be an explosive minority protest report from the commute* unless a stroii? plank is included in the party platform. Just where lh« platform writers go from there remains to be seen but an old time Democratic row apparently U in the making. , The vice presidential spot U wide open.
