NAACP Aiming At Fine-Print Clauses By BARRY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Fine- print clauses in installment contracts and loan agreements are the targets of a broad, three- pronged legal campaign being mounted by the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Lawyers for the fund are claiming in a flurry of lawsuits this summer these clauses unfairly deprive consumers of their right to defense themselves against creditors. The civil rights organization Js aiming at three kinds of contract clauses: 1. Those in which consumers wno fail to meet instalment payments give up their right to defend themselves against suits by finance companies. This arrangement is permitted in all states except California. Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington. 2. Those in which consumers give up their right even to be notified they are being sued by the companies or by the merchants themselves. This is permitted in Colorado, Delaware, Hawalii, Idaho, Ilinois, Mary. land, Ohio, Pennsylvania and . Virginia. 3. Those in which consumers who default on loan or purchase payments assign future wages! to their creditors. This is permitted in most states. I Philip Schrag, a fund lawyer, told in a telephone interview of the over-all consumers campaign: "Poor consumers, both blaok and white, are routinely cheated and abused by merchants and creditors. We are using every available legal device to protect these buyers and borrowers because such merchants contribute significantly to keeping poor people poor. "Civil rights are meaningless unless they are accompanied by economic rights." The fund is relying heavily on the Supreme Court's 74 decision last month invalidating Wisconsin's garnishment law—one of seven cases argued successfully before the court by fund attorneys last term. The court ruled a worker is entitled to a hearing before his salary can be frozen to satisfy a creditor's demands. This decision undercut garnishment laws in 16 other states and voided a quarter-million outstanding garnishments. Moreover, it seems to have established the principle that property cannot be taken from a person in a court proceeding unless he has a chance to defend himself. Fund attorneys are arguing the fine-print clauses don't give clear and adequate warning to consumers that they are waiving their constitutional right to a day in court. Ceifi'ng on Farmer Subsidies Rejected WASHINGTON (AP) - Senators have voted down a proposed $20,000 ceiling on government payments to farmers for not planting crops, but House supporters of the limit say tJhe fight is not over. The Senate, before passing a $7.6 billion Agriculture Department appropriations bill Monday, eliminated a House-originated amendment which would impose a $20,000 limit on the subsidies. The vote was 53-34 in favor of rejecting the ceiling, and the bill was passed 88-2. A conference committee will iron out differences between the Senate and House versions of the appropriations measure. Kepublican Reps. Silvio Conte of Massachusetts and Paul Findley of Ilinois, who pushed successfully for the ceiling in the House, said they would not give up on the limit. Conte, calling the Senate action "a tragic mistake," said he would try to get the ceiling reinstated in conference or would seek House floor action insisting on the $20,000 limitation. The ceiling was opposed by the administration. Boys From Riehland Visit Scout Camp HIGHLAND SPRINGS <BBC)j —A 36-member Cub Scout party from Richland Springs journey* ed to Camp Billy Gibbons last Thursday for a picnic supper and visit to the Scout Camp. The group was given honor seats around the council ring at the calling of the candidates for the Order of the Arrow and jndian dances. Earlier in the week the boys _ held a patriotic party at the! den in observance of July 4. ' Henry Lewis served ice cream Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois argued against limiting payments, while John J. Williams of Delaware fought for the ceiling he said would save the government $35 million annually. Citing instances of five farms each getting more than $1 million not to produce crops, Williams commented: "I don't know how any member of the Senate can justify paying $1 million to so-called farmers not to farm." Dirksen noted that the subsidy was started to eliminate farm surpluses. Sen. Spessard L. Holland, D- Fla., floor manager of the bill, contended the ceiling could create chaos in farming. And Sen. Roman L. Hruska, H-Neb., said that a ceiling could hurt small farmers by causing a flood of produce on the market. Not taking part in the debate but \oting against the proposed ceiling was Democratic Sen. •lames 0. Eastland who has received subsidies for keeping some of his Mississippi land out of production. Records from fiscal 1967 showed he and his fami* ly received ??U,364 in such subsidies. The $7.6 billion bill approved by the Senate is about $675 million above the President's bqd- get requests, but $548 million Under last year's appropriation, About half the funds are for payments to farmers and just under $? billion is for school lunches, commodity distribution and other programs to feed the poor.
