ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON (*—The political' ly explosive civil rights issue comes up for fresh attention In Congress today Rgainst the back- I ground of the presidential nomination races. It is being brought up by a Senate Labor subcommittee headed by Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn), who lii 1348 led the drive which nailed * strong civil rights plunk Into the Democratic platform and widened ••the North-South split In party rank*. The subcommittee arranged to start hearings today on the hotly- disputed proposal to create a fair employment practices commission fPEPC! with power to enforce its rulings in job discrimination cases. The opening sessions simply will lay the groundwork, with federal officials scheduled to tell about the manpower situation generally and L to report on an anti-discrimination * program which President Truman put into effect by executive order. The President's order deals only with jobs under defense contracts Ict by the .government. Legislation to set up & compulsory PEPC with Jurisdiction over private industry generally has been opposed by Southerners in Congress more vigorously than any other phn.Ve of the Truman civil rights program. Dixie lawmakers , have blocked action on all parts of] the program through filibusters, I or marathon debate. i Even the most enthusiastic back-! ers of the program aren't looking : for any action beyond the com••- mtttae level at this session. But ; ; Humphrey obviously has decided the Issue needs airing again in :.. this presidential election year. The political implications are apparent. For one tiling, opposition to a compulsory FEPC is not confined to the South—nor Is Sen. Richard B. Russell, Georgia Democrat, the only presidential hopeful opposed to it.' For example, Sen. Robert A. Tatt of Ohio, a candidate for the Bepubllcan presidential nomination and a member of the Humphrey subcommittee. Is against a compulsory FEPC. T a f t has backed opposition bills calling for a commission without enforcement powers, with the main reliance on educational processes to eliminate Job discrimination. The subcommittee has before It two basically similar compulsory bills, one sponsored by Humphrey and the other by Sen. Ives <R-NY). Ives is backing Oen. Dwight D. Elsenhower 'for the GOP presidential nomination. Some of the general's political opponents have been calling on him to make his position known regarding such issues as PEPC, but his supporters don't look for him to speak out in any detail while he still is In uniform. Humphrey has said any watering down of the Democrats' 1948 civil rights plank, inevitably would lead to election of a Republican president In November. And he has said the Democratic nominee must be a mart who would strive to carry out the Truman program on FEPC.
