PACK TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW? Mississippians Bitter Toward Truman and Civil Rights With Plans in Making for Real Battle By Harold UoiUi Prw< SUH Correspondent MCICSOP. Hip., J"*b. It. (UP.)—Mississippi Democratic leaders the gun on other Southern states today and backed up Gov. fielding L. Wright In hU call for an "AJl-aouth" meeting to plan > ilcht OR Prwident Truman's civil rights proposal!, Man tliao 5,000 Misslsslppians * responded to Wright's call and met here yesterday—on Lincoln's Birtli- day—to organise "all'true white Je.'IerionUn 'Democrats" against tin Prwld«Dt'> "anti-Southern" program* Thejr cheered Wright when he ehwf*d that Northern party 'taad- «n "tart tiolen from ui th« DMtwntle Party" uid boo«d lu- tHy whenever Mr. Truman'* nanw was mentioned. The Democrats approved a resolution calling (or a conference here of all Democratic leaders who sympathize with "Southern tradition" to map plant for withholding the Southern electoral vole from Mr. Truman. • No date ras set for the meeting, but the plan WAS regarded AS » rebuke to other Southern governors who voted a 40-day "cooling-off period in the red-hot dispute in a meeting at Wakulla Springs, Fla. Sast WMlt-end. The governors conference decided to meet again within w dnys to decide .what steps to take in regard to the President's program for fair employment, antl-lynch, anti-pall tax and anti-Jim Crow legislation. A high school band blared out the measures of "Dixie" as representatives of every precinct in Mississippi Jammed the city auditorium. They heard Wright condemn Northern Democratic leaders for the civil rights program nnd declare "we gre going to have to run those scalawags nut and keep them out," Sen. John Steanli, Theodore G. Bilbo's successor, flew from Washington and pledged a "fl|ht to the finish" to prevent passage of the I'iealdent'* proposed civil rlghli laws. He urged MisslsslpplanR and other Southerners to hold back their electoral votes In the next presidential election or cast them for a Southerner unless Northern Democratic leaders stop their so-called attacks on Southern Institutions. Mississippi Democrats should make a calm, deliberate decision, ftennia snld, and "when your decision reaches. Washington it will be like u tornndo." Sen. James O. Eustlnnd, who proposed the electoral vote "withholding plnn" some weeks ago, was unable to attend the meeting because of Illness, Buy Lycurgns Spinks. an unsuccessful caudldttlc for goveiiior in the lest primary, told the meeting: 'The only difference between President Truman and Henry Wallace is that Wallace hands out Ills red pills nnd you tuke them raw while Truman hands out his in capsule form." Heart Disease Heed Not Keep Victims From Useful Activity Rickey Expecting ! Contract Trouble With Eddie Stanky NEW YORK, Feb. 13. (UP)Branch Rickey ws« working his way up lo the letter "S" todty at which time he expects to have a full head of steam to deal with second baseman Eddie Slanky In his alphabetical disposal or Brooklyn Dodger salary problem*. Aside from Ne«ro Jackie Robinson, whom he moved out of rotation in order to provide an appropriate headline for Abraham Lincoln's birthday, Rickey has been signing hii players more or leas In alphabetical order. Thus Jar he has gotten to Cal Abranu, Dan Bankhead. Jack Bantu, Hank Bermnan, Bobby Bragan, Ralph Branca, Tom Brown, and Hugh Casey, In Just about that order. The methodical rn»»t«r of th« Dodger destlnlen virtually wound up the "B-C" section oJ negotiations yesterday without resorting to headache i»wdcr when he revealed lhat his portly relief pitcher, Casey, had gone on the dotted line for about si7,000. Robinson, the "guest star" in the "B-C" group, said he was "very pleased" with his new contract, which was believed to be for about »15,000. Rickey, who admitted he might have a "few holdouts" also was expected to have trouble when he got to Pete Reiser, his veteran outfielder who wants 120,000 or a raise of about $5,000. Stanky, who said at his home in Mobile, Ala., that he wns offered "about $40,000 worth of baseball knowledge and a very small raise" In a conference with HIckey, indicated he was "slUinir tight." Dixie Demo Senators Worried About Blocking Racial Issue Barman* L»hr (UnlUd Pru. Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. (UP)— Southern Democratic senators appear more worried than ever today about their chances this year of blocking legislation aimed at racial UMUM. Their only effective weapon is the filibuster—continuous talk under the Senate's loose rules of debate coupled with ability to capitalize on parliamentary tactics of delay. Some Southern leaders fear they will be unable this year to scrape up the vote* needed to defeat a clo- lure motion putting a limit on debate. A clotunt motion requires a two- thirds vote, and Its appproval allows each senator to speak for only one hour thereafter on th« pending bill. None has been idopted by the Senate since 1921. In recent yean, Southerners have been supported by some Republicans In defeating attempts to shut oft debate on antUlynchlng, anti- poll tax and fair employment prac- tice bills. Southern foes of those measures view attcmpu to pass them as a mere political contest between Republicans and Northern Democrat! hustling for the votes of Negroes and other minorities In such politl- ard Upton, all of Steele.

They fear that they can depend on less Republican support this year to block a cloture motion. One of them gave this explanation: In his recent message asking civil rights legislation, President Truman put the Republicans on a spot which may force them to try to tighten party lines und pass at least one over Southern opposition.

Pink ham's VEGETABLE COMPOUND' By Mare I. Partoni ' NEA Staff Correspondent NBW YORK, (NBA)—Can persons having heart disease work? -Yes." That'* the answer, with reservations, made by Dr. Leonard J. Gold. Hater, professor of Industrial Hv- giene at the School ol Public Health, Columbia University. Goldwater, In a report soon to be published by the American Heart Association, point- 1 ; out that a study of 2000 unselected heart patients attending a New York clinic re- ductive activity. Nor ia the ability to work limited to certain types ot heart victims. "Capacity for work." Ooldwntcr says, "depends on the severity o[ the disease rather than the type.' However, he points out thai some severe types of heart disease "require complete bed rest or very strict limitation ol physical or mental activity." A physician, preferably one familiar with the physical demands of the job to be performed, should make the decision. "In 1938 there were, at least *,000,000 persons in the United States , with some form of heart disease," Goldwater says. "With the steady aging of our population, this number rill increase through additions to the ranks of those'whose heart and blood vessels show ths effect of this aging process. Productive employment of heart victims is one of the problems to which the American Heart Association Heart Association ia devoting time, money and study. ''It ii sound economics and good •etiology to keep u many u pos- aible of tne« men and women from becoming burdens to their families, their communities and to themselves. They must be permitted to be useful members of the society as Jong as this U reasonably possible." Goldwater alto believes that per- .»ons with heart diseases are good employer risks. "The employe who has a physical impairment wants desperately to keep his Job. His attitude toward the job and the employer reflects that desire. "If the individual is placed in a job which an experienced physician believes Is suitable, there is little or no risk beyond that to which a normal person would be subjected," he says. v Tn certain dusty trades, he says, heart disease may result from damage to the lungs from Inhaled dust, but "there Is no evidence that the physical exertion required by any ordinary type of occupation can in itself produce heart disease. "IF the blood vessels are already diseased, exertion may result in a pain in the region of the heart." Goldwater points out that moat authorities believe there It no re- based mainly on the fact that more than hnlf of all acute attacks occur while the victim Is asleep or at rest, while only two per cent are associated with unusual exertion. He recommends the following program to communities that want to help increase the employment possibilities ol people with heart diseases: 1. See that adequate lacllltles exist for finding and selecting Jobs for persons with heart discuses. 2. Educate employers to the ad- of employing handicapped workers. 3. Educate the public to the fact that within reasonable limits and, under medical supervision, a great majority of persons having heart disease may safely work and otherwise lead fairly normal lives. 4. Develop vocational training programs. Read Oourler New« Want Ads BOUI LI-DUTY NOSI D*0?l Worts Where Most Colds Start Don't delay!
