Golesbu The Hard Way to Write Law By PETER EDSON Gould WASHINGTON (NBA) A Ne* gro march on Washington sched uled for Aug. 28, to influence pas of civil rights legislation third such capital in American his- sage would be the demonstration tory. The march of "Coxey's Army" of 500 unemployed during the 1893 depression was first. The marchers were led by Jacob S. Coxey, later mayor of Massillon, Ohio. had what Coxey was men considered the silly idea that the government should authorize a $500 million bond issue to finance public works which would give the unemployed jobs. He failed to influence Congress, which rejected his notion as a proposal to print $500 million in paper money to give to the ufl* employed. Coxey himself was arrested. His army dwindled to 300, and finally faded away in despair. JUSf MOW "silly" Coxey's idea was may be indicated by the tact that last year Congress appropriated $400 million for President Kennedy's accelerated public works program to relieve unemployment. This device was also used by the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt to create jobs during the depression of the 1930s. Coxey was simply 40 years ahead of his time. Shortly before Roosevelt's election in 1932 came the second march of the unemployed on Washington. This was the Bonus March of 5,000 unemployed veterans. They demanded that their adjusted compensation insurance certificates 6t 1924 be paid in cash on demand, instead of 20 years after issuance or on the death of the insured, if that Came first. THERE WERE several bitter riots in Washington until federal troops drove the Bonus Marchers across the Potomac to a camp on what is now Pentagon grounds. Congress then passed a bill giving the marchers 75 cents a day and railroad fare home. They were finally cleared out at a cost to the Veterans Administration of $77,000. It was not, until 1936 that Congress settled the veterans' grievance by making the adjusted com- into government bonds, Whieh fully in a Detroit freedom walk could then be cashed on demand.

He called the President's Civil Rights Message "the greatest statement since the Emancipation Proclamation" and then revealed why he thought so: The Harlem minister says he wrote half of it. "I rewrote half of that speech the night before it was delivered to Congress. The President had no intention if including many of the points that he did in his message." The White House had "no comment" when queried about the Powell boast. The Harlem" Some of the lawyers in Robert Kennedy's Justice Department are said to consider that Section t i 11 barring discrimination in all "public places" is at present unconstitutional. They are confident, however, that the present Supreme Court will reverse an old decision which called the proposal unconstitutional. In March, 1875, the Reconstruction Congress passed a bill that banned segregation in public places. United "All persons within the States," read the bill, were entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the accom modations, advantages, facilities, and privileges of inns, conveyances on land or water, theaters and other places of public amusement." THE CONSTITUTIONALITY of the act was challenged and the Supreme Court handed clown its ruling on Oct. 5, 1883. The federal government, said the court, had no power to impose such restriction on the use and enjoyment of private property, even if it was in part dedicated to a public use. The 14th Amendment, the court explained, does not permit Congress to enact a statute securing equal accommodations in inns, restaurants, and places of public amusements. It guarantees only equal protection of the laws. Senator Sam Ervin, a former lead the Southerners in opposition to the administratioi. bill.

A column on admissions requirements for college, for instance, will stir up controversial correspondence from all quarters of the landscape. It will even stir the educators themselves to comment. The big fight over admissions requirements at the moment revolves around the question of taking a mechanical or an elec- tronci computer's word for what constitutes ' 'college material.''

Now comes the Fourth of July, For a few fleeting hours the black sky is shattered by a wild rain of fire blossoms. Each crackling rocket burst evokes an "Ah-h-h!" of rapture that dies like a sigh of regret. Out of an artful compound of a few common chemicals, paper, and string, glory bursts upon the world. For example, the brilliant rocket flowers begin as a pasty mixture of metallic salts that is dried in a kind of cooky tin, much like peanut brittle.

Strontium creates red "stars" the squares are calied. Yellow comes from sodium, green from barium, blue from a combination of copper and calomel. To make the typical burst, the stars are arranged around a small charge of gunpowder and wrapped with paper and twine. A time fuse in the soaring rocket fires the gunpowder which, as it explodes, ignites the stars. The number of packets of powder and stars placed in a rocket determines the number of colored bursts, each of which is ignited as the time fuse burns down its charge of powder. Changes in pituitary gland are usually present, but these are probably a result, and not the cause, of the disease. Since some of the tumors of the adrenal associated with Cushing's disease are malignant, it would be more correct to say that this type of cancer is a cause of the hyperactivity of the adrenals than that the hyperactivity caused the cancer. Surgical removal of the adrenals is the recommended treatment, in any case. This was not possible before adrenal cortical hormones became available but now, with these supplements to replace the essential adrenal secretions, persons with Cushing's disase can be restored to a more normal life.
