10 gfllMbura Register-Mail, Goelsburg, Wed,, July 10, 1963 Sands Are Shifting Around JFK's Civil Rights Bill By LVLB C. WILSON The sands aire shifting beneath the foundations of President Ken nedy's civil rights proposals. There is, for example, the matter of compromising a mora Issue, There is the further matter of imposing morality by law These matters arise especially in consideration of that part of the Kennedy proposal that would legislate the desegregation of al places of public accommodation. It is argued that the federal government has a moral responsibility to desegregate all places of public accommodation even though thousands of these places are mere mom-and-pop opera tions or Mrs. Murphy tourist homes and boarding houses. But it also is argued that the federal DR. I. ERNSTEIN OPTOMETRIST CONTACT LENSES EYES EXAMINED LIVING SOUND HEARING AIDS GALES BURG OPTICAL CO. 143-031? or 342-3017 33* C.

It is argued, also, that the irrtposi* tion could not be enforced even though the armed forces were summoned to compel all of the Mrs. Murphys to bed down unwanted customers, or the moms and pops to serve them. The Little Businesses These latter arguments apparently possess great force because there is a disposition on the part of the Kennedy administration to back away from the federal desegregation of Mrs. Murphy's spare bedrooms, for example, as well as the little business operated by mom and pop. Nor do the Kennedys alone seem to hesitate. No New York state politician can afford to be outdone by anyone in his loud demands for all- inclusive civil rights guarantees. Such a polwitician is Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y. Javits is on record, however, that some compromise may be necessary to obtain legislation against discrimination in places of public accommodation. The senator told a television audience ast week that the volume of business or the number of em- Theyll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo refit* ...

That probably is good, practical politics. But it seems not too good morals, If the Waldorf- Astoria must be integrated as a matter of morality, at what point down the business scale toward Mrs. Murphy's motel does morality cease to be the controlling factor so that practical politics may take over? That is a question the practical politicians cannot answer. They may soften its impact but they can't answer it. For examples Atty. Gen Robert F. Kennedy told a House committee during civil rights hearings that the Justice Department had considered ' a cut-off point based on business volume or number of em­ ployes. But the department rejected the idea, he said, because it seemed not to make sense to say that big business could not discriminate but that little business could. But Kennedy also testified that Mission Circle Entertained BIGGSV1LLE - The Women's Missionary Circle of the United Presbyterian Church held it's meeting at the church Friday. The topic for the program, "The Church and Missions," from the Bible study book, "One People of God" was given by Mrs. Roy Whiteman and Mrs. Beulah Pendarvis. Mrs. A. T. Glenn read an article from "The Concern" magazine "South of the Border." Miss Mary Ellen Liston was vocalist accompanied at the piano by her mother. Biggsvlllc Briefs Mr. and Mrs. Van W. Meyer accompanied their daughter, Mrs. the bill as drafted was not designed to desegregate very small operations, notably tourist homes where the owner operates the bus* iness and lives on the premises. That seems not to make much sense, either, if the question is one of morality. Perhaps it is the Puritan ethic again haunting the congressional conscience as when President Kennedy proposed to continue def^ icit spending to help finance a tax cut. It is well known. that the Puritans were squares of the worst kind, but they believed in living within their income. They didn't believe in compromising moral issues. torn Burnsitfe of t/rb&ni, to CM- cago to meet her husband at OHare Field, where he flew by jet from Lot Angeles, C*lif,, Sunday, they remained (ft the city overnight and saw in cinerama, "How the West was Won," They'Vislted Starved Rock State Park en route home. , Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rhoades visited Friday in Gladstone with Mr. and Mrs. Paul Rhoades.
