Mansfield Says No Gimmicks To Test Pact WASHINGTON (AP) - Son. Mike Mansfield of Montana said .after a conference with ['resident Kennedy today that there arc "no 'gimmicks, no side issues," tied to the Moscow test ban treaty. The Senate Democratic leader said the limited lost ban agreement has broad support not only in the Senate which must ratify it, but in the House as well. "We informed the President the chances for strong bipartisan ratification of the treaty by the Senate were excellent and that we expected the ralificaion would come as soon as possible," Mans- t'eld said after the weekly White House breakfast session of Democratic congressional leaders. Mansfield said Undersecretary (.( State W. Averell Harriman created a tremendous impression in his appearance before the Senate Foreipn Relations and the garden— ing«*. with the editor Note to the "Teenager of Garden City" who wrote a letter to this editor last week: We don't publish unsigned letters. We would be happy to publish this particular letter if we had a signature. Same goes for "loyal Telegram reader" who wrote' about the dancing issue. * * * If we were just a newspaper reader, we also would write letters to the editor. He's a hypothetical one: "Dear Mr. Editor: "I read your editorial last night in which you supported Hal Boyle for president. "As usual, you have failed to acquaint yourself with th e facts. Boyle isn't the man for the job. He is a terrific newspaper col umnist, has a grand sense of humor, will continue the Irish dynasty in the White House, and will appeal to the folks back home in Kansas City. "But he should stay behind his typewriter — opening his mail to learn tilings he would never know if he became president. It just wouldn't be for the good of our country to have a Pavement Pluto in the nation's capital. "So I urge you and yo readers: Keep Boyle in the Fourth Estate and vote for Ann Landers for president. Things will be in much better shape in Washington." * * * Local weather prophet Elihu Allman, who is pictured on this page, says the August rains may have started, and it could be a wet month. Last week he predicted rain for the weekend, and it raided most of Saturday night, and again last night. His next rain "date" is August 10, but he isn't ruling out the possibility of more rain between now and then. And neither is the weather bureau. * * * Don't know how old you are? From the United States Department of Commerce we received a release that Kansas residents may obtain proof of age from the Commerce Department's Bureau of the Census. So if you need proof of age to collect social security and other retirement benefits, or to obtain a passport or qualify for a job, write to the Personal Census Service Branch, Bureau of the Census, Pittsburg, Kan., and they will send an application form. And for those who don't know their age, and don't want to know, just save your stamp. Armed Services Committees and the Joint Atomic Energy Commit, tt'i Monday. | He said Harriman answered all I questions frankly and openly, j It appeared, however, that Sen! ate Republican leaders have • Hlled any chance of a bipartisan j d'splay at the formal signing of i the test ban treaty in Moscow. i Minority leader Everett M. I Dirksen .said he had not been invited to accompany Secretary of ' State Dean Rusk on the ceremonial trip and would not go if he were. Rusk visited with the Illinois Senator Briefly Monday but Dirksen said they did not discuss the matter. "I fe*l that 1 should not go even if 1 were invited because acceptance would leave the implication that I approved of the treaty without knowing fully the effects it will have," Dirksen said. Dirksen told an informal news conference Monday that the White House suggested but he rejected a conference of leaders of both parties before President Kennedy's Friday night television-radio speech on the treaty, which would ban all except underground tests. Sen. Burke B. Hickenlooper, R- lowa, chairman of the Senate GOP Policy Committee and senior Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, said in a separate interview he could not accept an invitation to go to Moscow o r the signing ceremony, expected to be held next week. "f think it would b e highly improper for me to go in view of the fact that I have not decided whether I will support or oppose this treaty. 1 ' he said. "I intend to listen to all the evidence on both sides before coming to a conclusion. GOP Policy CommlHet members arranged to discuss the treaty but there was no indication that they would take a stand on it. Dirksen said he had.made no effort to poll Republican senators and had no idea how they would vote on the agreement worked out by U.S., British and Soviet representatives. Treaty backers are wooing GOP support because ratification would require approval of two-thirds of those voting. Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota, assistant Democratic leader, predicted the treaty will be ratified. Humphrey said congressional mail indicates widespread popular support for it. And th e White House reported Monday that mor e than 1,000 telegrams received since Kennedy's Friday night address and ran more than 12-1 in support of his position. Disarmament Talks Resumed .GENEVA (AP)-The 17-nation disarmament conference resumed amid uncertainty over its future today to hear a report on the three-power agreement to ban nuclear tests above ground and under water. U.S. Ambassador Charles C. Stelle, Soviet negotiator Semyon K. Tsarapkin, and Britain's Peter Thomas v/ere to outline the limited test ban accord, generally hailed as a major cold war breakthrough. All major disarmament issues before the conference, resuming after a six-week .recess were still deadlocked after 16 months of negotiations. The only two steps forward since the beginning of the Geneva talks—the test ban treaty and the direct Moscow-Washington "hotline" communications link to prevent accidental war—were negotiated outside the conference. It generally was believed here that any further progresss to ease the cold war would have to come from similar direct negotiations. Garden City Telegram Vol. 34 GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, 67846, TUESDAY, JULY 30, 1963 7c A Copy No. 228 U S. Patrols Kill Red Raiders Fifth Southern Governor in Rights Hearing WASHINGTON (AP)-Gov. Car E. Sanders of Georgia testifies be fore one Senate committee and Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy before another today on civil rights legislation. In the House, representatives ol major Negro organizations had on appointment with Rep. Emanuel Celler, D-N.Y., to urge inclusion of a fair employment practices provision in the administration's omnibus civil rights bill. Sanders was called before the Senate Commerce Committee, which is holding hearings on one part of the seven-point package— a bill to require desegregation of stores, restaurants, hotels and other private businesses serving the public. Along with Sanders, the fifth Southern governor to testify on the measure, the commitee was to hear from Atty. Gen. Joe Patterson of Mississippi. The Senate Judiciary Committee, which called Kennedy back for additional questioning, is proceeding st a far more leisurely pace with hearings not only on the public accommodations provision but on the other parts of the package. Kennedy is the only witness the committee has heard except for opening statements of its own members — chiefly Sen. Sam J. Ervin .!>., D-N.C. The hearings besan July 16. Ervin, a former Supreme Court justice in his state, serves as a sort of chief counsel for Southern senators opposed to the civil rights legislation and has done virtually all of the questioning of Kennedy. The House Judiciary Committee under Celler' s chairmanship, is nearing completion of hearings on the civil rights package submitted by the President last month. The President endorsed, but did not'include in hl s package, a bill to ban racial discrimination in employment. A separate bill to do this, applying both to employers and to unions, has been approved by the House Labor Committee.

KK Wldilta : 87 68 Weave Hit-Miss Pattern Rails Accused of Near-Strike Tactics WASHINGTON (AP) - A union leader accused the nation's railroads today of using brink-of- strike tactics to press for com- pulstory arbitration to settle the rails work rules dispute. H. E. Gilbert, president of the Brotherhood of Enginemen and Firemen, testified before the House Commerce Committee. Five on-train union s have said they will strike if new work rules, which would slice crews on freight and yard runs, are imposed by the industry. The railroad deadline for posting of the new rules is 12:01 a.m. Aug. 29. Gilbert spoke in opposition to President Kennedy's proposal the controversy be turned over to the Interstate Commerce Commission for the next two years. He said that would be compul- sory arbitration, pointing toward the end of "that kind of bargaining which has become a part of ou r system of free enterprise." Gilbert said "the only solution to this case is to be found in collective bargaining— collective bargaining which has had a shot in the arm." He said Congress can provide that booster shot. He adcted both sides should bargain with the knowledge that "the heavy hand of congressional power i s ready to punish a party failing to meet hi.s public and private responsibilities during negotiations." Senators working for a settlement say they are encouraged by Another summer 'rainstorm moved across portions of Southwest Kansas Monday night in a weird pattern.

Duplicity Evident in White Southerner's View Concerning Negroes? Cf1ITftP"? MOTB What !„ tlin 411171 T . ... . ._. ... . . . .. *^ ••^ EDITOR'S NOTE—What i s the naked basis of the white man's resistance to integration of the Negro in America? Here is a hard look at the cere of the problem, often hidden behind polite reasons and rationalizations. Second of a special serie s of articles comprehensively surveying both sides of today's racial crisis. By RELMAN MORIN MACON COUNTY, Ala., (AP)— I' is not uncommon in the South to hear a segregationist say that, by and large, he likes the Negro. He sees no inconsistency between having an affection for Negroes and at the same time de- lending a system that denies them lull equality. "The Negroes as a whole just aren't ready yet," he stys. "It's not their fault, but that's the way it is at this point." A key point in hi,s reasoning is that the great majority of Ne- kToes are like children and that, for the time being, they must be treated as such. A composite of mauy conversations with the thoughtful type of segregationist goes pretty much like this: "When I was a kid, my best friend was a colored boy. We played together, fished together, slept side bv side on hunting trips. I was in and out of his hou.'e every day and he was in mine, eating from the same kitchen table. "After w e grew up, I paid his hospital bills and loaned him money when ne needed it. I went to fhe weddings and funeials in hi.s family and he came to ours. On Saturday night, when he got'into trouble wi'h the law, who went to the jail at 2 a.m. and bailed him out? I did. ' It was n comfortable, harmonious relationship, he sjys. Even today, while racial strife rises toward the danger point in many places you caa still see this relatbnship between indi vidual Negroes and whites in the south. H«re it t cotton planlation deep in Alabama. ll is a'jout 10 miies from the nearest community, the nearest sneriff or policeman. In the county, Negroes outnumber the whites, live to one. The doovs of the planter's home are never Iriked. When lie has to travel, hd tells the Negro foreman, "I'll i,e away a lew days. You look after tbiii?* around here." Driving into the plantation you Sfe a softr.all ^ame in H field near the planter's house. Thr v> of hii children, including a girl, 'ar.; playing with the children of the Negro "ho'; hands." Some miles away, in a corner 01 the plantation, an. a;;i.-d Negro woman sin, rocking, on the porch. She is the widow of a 'him hand" who worked here many years. The house is hr»rs as long a 1 ; '•In:, lives. The planter asks if she is all right. "Gcttm' along jes' fin", ' she says. A little si-erie take r plac,- ir. the cotton fields. As the -N'egiocs stop work for their mid-day -neal, the planter slip.; a dollar bill ; i" a woman's Jiw). He te."-j a man to "drive her tc the j'.ore." For some reason, she had brought no food to the fields that morning. "Maybe she hasn't «ot any money," the planter says, "or maybe she just plain forgot. But I sure can't see her go without eating." In the winter, when the fields are bare, he finds other 'work on the plantation for his "hoc hands." They have to eat in the winter, too. The integration!*! tails this "Uncle Tom-ism." and the militant Negro says it is "paternalism," archaic, degrading the Negro, numbing his effort to develop himself. Let's look further. The planter frequently works in the fields beside the "hoe hands." The relationship appears completely comfortable. Little joke-sin language largely unintelligible to a Yankee—pass between them. They agree that (he cation looks good. "Way 1 figure," says the Negro foreman, "the better the boss does, the better we do." There will be a bonus for them at Christmas. He has been on this planlation 24 years, another man for 17, several others for 8 to 10 years. Not all segregationists, of course, profess to like Negroes. \ There is the bigot, ridden with fear and hatred of Hie No^ro, clutching his prejudices. He is Die nJgJiUrider, shooting indiscriminately into Negro homes, dumping garbage on the front porch of white integrationisls. To anyone who pleads for reason and good will in the struggli! over civil rights, he scrawls a "hate letter." H is misspelled, ungrammatical, frequently obscene, dripping VI.TJOIII. "That type of white man," says a Southern newspaper woman, "is at the bottom of the scale and he knows it. Tim only thing that separates him from an equally poor, uneducated Ni'tro is the color of his .skin. He has to look down on .so in (.-body so he looks down on the Negro." But what a Unit the segretation- ist who says he has a genuine ulJi'ctiofl for hi. 1 - Nefjro friends'.' How dof:s he square this with the fact of injuMu-i.' arid inequality? He begins with a basic premise, a conviction 1' underlies most of his attitude's—that, by and large, ihe Negro has' not yet reached a stage of development where he is rea:ly for full equality. "No race on earth ever made so much pro^r' in 100 years as tin; Negroes liave made," he says. "Bui they did it with the 'guidance of tins white man and they still mv<l our guidance." Flowing from that comes his opposition to integrated schools. "The Negro doesn't have the Humi! capacity for learning," he says. "Moreover, his home environment is seldom conducive to study. So why should my children b« hold back to his pace? They're both bettor off in schools where they can advance at their own pace." The segregationist also says that Negro children frequently conu; to school unbathcd and wearing dirty clothes. He says they come from homes with a high rate of illegitimacy ami adds, "1 don't wanty rny kids sil- ling next to kids who talk openly about what they have sueu at home." For similar te«»pni, he doesn't want his wife and daughter to sit next to « Nagm in a movie theater I or a luiR'li counter, use the same fitting rooms in a store, or the same rent rooms. Does lie roally believe the Negro's ultimate goal Is to "marry your daughter?" Yes, he does. He's convinced of It. As to the Negro's right to vole, one segregationist said, ''There's no reason why their besl people shouldn't vote, thosu who are educated, literate, and able to make a judgment on candidate's and is- fiues. But there aren't many with these qualifications." .So it goes, consistently, over po'iil afler p'wu — the assertion that Ihe Negro s level of development is not yet at a sta^e where he is ready lor full equality. "What he is asking, segrega- tionisljj say, 'is Ihe rights without the responsibilities." I once asked a Southern newspaper editor, u segre«{alionist, to itemize Ihe fjv<> or six principal reasons why so many Southerners believe in segregation. On the back of an envelope, he set down It e various poaiils Leading big list was one word: "Habit." N'xl: Th» Chvrch't role,
