"But as to the overall plan . . . brand It and denounce It as pure' political fraud presented here y both major parties not in the ntcrest of the welfare of the peo- >le but 38 a brazen attempt to cap- lire the vote of the misguided and ilsled rank and file Negro in the HB elections," Stennis said, The country, lie wild, needs (lie lability supplied by the two-party ystem.

"It can- ot and it will not follow any po- tlcal party that helps put these ills or iiny substantial part of »em on the statute books, "I believe that their passage ould open the floodgates and lead D conditions that will destroy the .epubllcan Party." Stennis contended that the bills Lso would stir up civil nnrt racial rife that could "largely paralyze ndustrial urn! commercial ilevelop- icnt" in the South and would "set le Negro back many years." The outh Is making progress In work- ig out Its racial problems, he said, nd should be allowed (o settle her vn problems.
