After lour days of backing tod filling the committee came p with this compromise: t. Momben of the white delegation would nave to sign an oath of loyalty to the national jonveatson's presidential and vke-presidential nomineea. 2. Slates -would be told not to practice any tort of discrimination in (electing delegates to the IMS convention and undertake to tupport the national party nomineea. 3. A watch dog committee to ensure the stale parties meet (heat requirements la to be set up. - 4. Sixty-sis of the ft Mississippi freedom delegation would be allowed In she convention as honored guests. , , ' v f. The remaining two Negro Dr. Aaron Henry and white Rev. Edwin King would be accorded full delegate status under new title as delegates aV large. This gave them both seat ana vote. ORDEBS FROM LBJ ; - The compitHmse as rammed through by the combined efforts of Senator Hubert Humphrey, popular favorite for the vice-presidential spot, and Walter Reutber. president of the United Auto workers. . r ' Both , were understood to be acting on direct orders from President Johnson striving to create a picture of harmony and WUlf But ae sooner waa the eees premise agreed ea la eemm It-tee tbaa the balleoa went up. The Freedom Democrats rejected it as too IHtla and too late. They wanted at least equal representation with the whites; Anything less was unthinkable. Governor Johnson of Missis sippi telegraphed his delegation that he waa not going to sup port his namesake for the presi dency and they could go home. He called the compromise a da-vice to tame the party bfj the spot because It would not face a , showdown. The delegation caucused.' Three of them defected and agreed to sign the loyally undertaking. The rest packed to go home. Spokesman Jack Pitman call ed the compromise ridiculous kowtowing to outside pressure groupe and in unlawful proce dure.' r ' -.. ...V"t He and ethers refused to say wfitt had gone on to. the caucus but it -was generally accepted the delegates were acting ea ordtra from hontfe " LIKE list STATE ' ' ' They said the compromise was the equal of creating list elate. The decision came four hours before the second session of the convention was due to begin. The row had-begun when two rtvat delegations from 'Mississippi arrived here to take pert la the convention. The official delegation whites were elected at an official state coo vent ion lest month. The ' seme convention also promised to put on the ballot a the November election the presidential and vice - presl dentfel nominees adopted by the national parry. This complied with a key rule ef the national convention. But the Mississippi party already quarrelling with President Johnson ever civil rights left Itself a loop hole. Instead of" adjourning it recessed to Sept a. This leaves the way open to Mississippi to go back oa its pledgee; keep Johnson and his running net off the ballots hi the state and leave the door wide open to Republican Barry Geidwater. t. i..'- Sswa a aseve what the atlswal party fears sad Barry Geidwater reHes ea. But on to the scene marched e Freedom Party delegation M Negroes, four whites. They claimed the official delegation was Illegal because Negroes were excluded from party activities hi the state. IMPASSIONED CASE . V They presented aa Impassioned case which demanded they he seated snore ea .moral than legal grounds. , .

FANTASTIC SCENE And the nation was treated to the fantastic scene of three white men from a delegation of CS taking their seats. The three retreating before the advance or five Negroes ("We didn't want to cause un- gentlementy scenes," they said). ins live negroes linking arms to prevent being thrown out of e free democratic party.
