PACK EIGHT BIATHEVILM? (AUK.)' COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 51, 1947 Negro Balloting Upheld by Court South Carolina Case Affirmed Second Time; May Be Appealed RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 21 (UP> — South Carolina election officials today were expected to carry lo the U. S. Supreme Court an appeal court's ruling that Negroes should have the right to vote In South Carolina Democratic primaries. The U. S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals'yesterday affirmed the constitutional voting right of Negroes In South Carolina primaries and accused the state at using Its powers to violate the constitution. Earlier U. S.. District Judge J. Waites Waring had ruled that South Carolina officials could not Interfere In the Negroes' balloting rights. Yesterday Hie nppenl court held that "there was no error" In Judge Waring's decree and denied an appeal by the state's election officers The case was expecled to be taken to the U. S. Supreme Court, whlcn lias Already ruled in 1941 that i «ote In an election under state con irol could not be denied on grounds of race or color. i The South Carolina case goes the way back to (hat 1044 rulln h which emphasled the fiindnnicntii freedom of ballot regardless of ra-v or creed. After thai decision. Gov. Olln D Johnston called the South Carollu legislature into special session dissolve all existing primary I and turn election machinery over ' the party to hold primaries as "private club." George Elmore, a Negro novel! store operator In Columbus. S. C contested the "club system" In 194 charging that he was refused ballot In the primary. He brought suit against the sta Democratic Party. Judge Wnriug upheld his suit ni U. S. Appeals Judge John J. Pn ker affirmed It again yesterday.

The bill Is merely an "SEC" for labor leaders who need it today as much as Investment bankers needed the SEC which wa.s started ten years ago. Any labor legislation during 1943 will be to amend the Tall-Hartley Bill and to raise minimum wages. Inflation The Inflation Era which we have forecast for several ycirs will re- mnln at this stage until Nov. 2, 1948. There will be no reckless printing of currency or government borrowing In 1948. 1948 will see a public reaction against "feather bedding"' "workless" jobs, and union rules which result in slow-ups.
