Senate Gets Blamed for Rights Action By JOHN BECKLER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The report of the Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders with its grim picture of a racially divided nation throws a harsh spotlight on the Senate maneuvering over civil rights legislation. In view of the massive effort urged by the commission to stave off threatened disaster, the Senate haggling over what percentage of houses in white suburbia should be opened to Negroes takes on a note of unreality. Indeed, the conditions described in the report provide a sad commentary on the whole body of civil rights legislation enacted over the past few years. Men of good will worked hard and courageously to pass those laws .and- thought they were<ush- erlng in a new era in U.S. race relations. But the commission calls past efforts largely inadequate and warns that if now and effective steps are not taken at once riots worse than any so far may erupt. The effectiveness of laws, of course, depends on the way they are enforced. The Negro's right to vote has been enormously strengthened in the South by strong enforcement of the law. But In other areas of discrimination, particularly where the law applies nationally and not just in the South, enforcement has been spotty. In probably no field is the record worse than in employment. On the same day the summary of the commission's report was released, Hep. William F. Ryan, D-N.Y., released a report of his own on job discrimination against Negroes. He pointed out that the right to employment on an equal basis is protected by specific federal and state laws and commissions and by a string of presidential orders, Yet Negro unemployment in the cities is three or four times the rate for whites, and those who find work are concentrated in the lowest-paid jobs. That discrimination-not lack of training-is the reason, he said, is proved by a study showing that 8 of 10 Negroes with an ejghth-grade education or Jess PROCLAMATION Whereas: March 4th through 8th, 1968 is officially designated as Safety Week at Hope High School; and Whereas: The Student Council has sponsored the Safety Week at Hope High School since 1964; and Whereas: The School Authorities, the Student Body, the Student Council, the City Officials all, deem this a very worthwhile project; Now, therefore, I, Donal Parker, by vesture of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the City of Hope in the State of Arkansas, do hereby proclaim the first week of March, 1968, as 'SAFETY WEEK' in Hope High School and urge all Students, Teachers, Parents, and City Of. ficials to work, study and plan observance of this Safety Week so as to Impress its Importance on all drivers. In Witness Thereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the City of Hope to be affixed this 2nd day of March. 1968. DONAL PARKER Mayor of Hope are in unskilled jobs, as against 3 of 10 whites. Ryan said the government has made almost no use of a weapon that could end discrimination in one-third of all the jobs in the nation. He referred to an executive order issued by President Johnson in September 1965, that prohibits companies holding government contracts from discriminating. Declaring that no contract has ever been canceled under the order, Ryan said its history "is an inexcusable story of bureaucratic betrayal." Ryan said the Defense Department lias refused to cancel contracts despite documented charges by other government agencies that certain companies discriminate In Wring. Labor unions are also covered by the order, he said, yet discrimination—particularly in the building trades unions—re mains a formidable barrier to Negro employment, In Newark, scene of one of last summer's bloodiest dots, he said, work will soon begin on a federally-aided construction project, James Marlow, who usually writes this column, Is ill, lor }te Republipan prpsicieijttel Bowlogtlw, aovj that W.

L6WRY Af> Television-Radio Writer NEW VORK (Ap) •* "A Hatfill of Rain," a play written more than 10 years ago, still packed a powerful punch In its Sunday night adaptation tin ABC. the two'hour drama was primarily an exposure of the horrors of narcotic addiction, complete with graphic demonstrations of withdrawal symptoms. The overriding theme diminished the impact and impcr- tance of the human relationships among all the disturbed, unhappy people Concerned. MleftSel ffcrfts and Peter Falk, as brothers, had the two mealy parts, parks, as Johnny, was the addict, originally hooked as a hospital patient, Who needed $40 a day to support his habit, Falk, as his older brother Polo, protected him, gave him money and helped conceal his condition from his pregnant wife. Sandy Dennis had the somewhat thankless part of the bewildered, young wife who rather incomprehensibly did not suspect anything was wrong with her husband, But because of her husband's inattention, she was powerfully attracted to the older brother. Then, if this were not complicated enough, there was Hersehel Berttardl playlnf the boorish, selfish father of the two men. there were many emotion* charged scenes, particularly between Falk arri Bernardl, but the most chilling moments belonged to Parks as he writhed, sweated and shook in the agony of withdrawal. At times the story moved Into soap opera territory—the wife on the verge of a miscarriage, a long reluctant scene between the older brother and the girl when he spoke of his love for her. there was no real end of the play—the climax came when the man admitted to being a junkie, there was some Vague suggestion that he would try, with medical help, to shake the Mbit, but that was all. Earlier Stinday afternoon NBC's "Experiment in televl- sion," had a romantic and polg- ftaftf vfpette, "Passport to Pfagtie." the film, shot mostly In Czechoslovakia, told of an interlude in the life of a young Americas woman, happily mar- rled, Who was in Prague briefly on business. Although she spoke no C2ech, she became Involved with a man there who gpoke almost no English, then, herbusf* ness over, she returned to her husband. the story was fold without any translation in two languages.
