Civil Rights Issue Now Switched to Dixie Polls WASHINGTON (UP) — Negro leaders are directing the civil rights controversy away from the congressional arena and into the polling places o£ the southern states. Southern white Democrats probably must shift their attention from the schools to the ballot boxes if they are to meet this new trend 1 . Regardless of the merits of the controversy, the Negro strategy appears to be sound and promising. Rep. Charles C. Diggs Jr. (D- Mich.) is a Negro who knows about politics. He recently coun- selled his race, as follows: Says South Misguided "The South is misguided by white politicians competing with each other. The only language a politician understands, especially a southern politician, is the ballot." Now comes Roy Wilkins,' national executive secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (•NAAOP) with a plan. Wilkins announced in Atlanta, Ga., that NAACP would attempt to get 3,000,000 southern Negroes to the polls. He will be aided in that effort by the voting rights guarantee enacted at (he last session of Congress. Wilkins said about 25 per cent of eligible southern Negroes were presently registered and that, the campaign would seek to make it 60 per cent. Seek Complexion Change First objective of this get-out- the-vote campaign is to change the complexion of southern legislatures. If that complexion were changed so. lea, would be changed the complexion of the delegations of southern states to the United States Congress. The impact of such changes would be fslt far beyond the borders of the old South. Southern members of the U. S. Congress who were more or less responsive to Negro voters back home could and probably would team happily with northern Democrats who comprise the left wing of their party not only on civil rights but on domestic questions generally. A more comprehensive welfare state and a greater centralization of government in Washington would be expected to flow from that. Congressional conservatives, of whatever party label, would become a more or less permanent minority, largely powerless to affect policy trends. System Discourages Voting The one-party system and the poll tax have tended in the South to discourage voting. The percentage of eligibles who trouble to go to the polls in some southern states is very low. The NiAACP registration drive among Negroes should spark a Democratic registration campaign by southern whites. Out of that, of course, could come a two-party system in the old South. It has been 'coming, although slowly. The use of federal troops in Little Rock generally is judged to have stopped the two- party trend cold. The drive of southern Negroes for ballot box power may start it again. Only Mississippi among" the southern states did not in 1956 record any votes for Republican candidates for the U. S. House of Representatives. Ten other southern States cast 1,646,000 votes for Republican house candidates. The total vote for Democratic candidates for the house was 4,746,000. Not a bad start toward two parties. U. S. Supreme Court Raps Rail Unions WASHINGTON (UP)—The Su-| preme Court has struck another blow at what it calls "invidious discrimination" by railroad unions against Negro members. The nine-judge bench said again Monday what it bsgan saying in 1947: That .. railway labor union js obligated to represent all workers fairly without regard to race. If a Negro worker suffers discrimination he may take his complaint to a federal court. The ruling stemmed from a law suit filed by Negro workers in the Houston, Tex., freight house of the Texas & New Orleans Railroad. They said the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks did nothing to help them when their jobs were abolished and whites hired as replacements.

State Group Suggests New Tax Laws INDIANAPOLIS Commission on State Tax and Financing Policy was told Tuesday it might be a good idea to enact a law limiting local properly taxes. The 1957 Legislature directed the commission to study the possibility of putting a ceiling of $2 per $100 assessed valuation in cities and towns and $1.25 in rural'areas, on the theory communities could make'up the difference with other levies, perhaps a net income tax. Purdue University 'Prof. Howard J. Hoag, who studied property taxes for the commission, -told the group the tax reduction would I create other problems. Hoag said it would create a "tendency" for local, units "to be less willing to handle their own problems, and more willing to dump their problems in the hands of the Legislature." In his report, Hoag said the plan might bring "greater and greater pressure" for state aid from the Legislature. Commission Director Robert J.' Pitchell said it was tnpossible for various state departments to agree on how much money Indiana has collected and spent at any one time. He blamed differences in accounting methods by the Budget Department, Auditor's office and Revenue Department. Rail Group Hears TalkbyH.E.
