" This is one opinion. The American Fascists who picketed the Goldwater rally in Washington. D. C, on July 4, had a different point of view. Using some of the most scurrilous placards that have been flashed before human eyes since the days of Hitlers Nuremburg rallies, the American Fascists, advertising themselves as the "National Dump Goldwater" committee, tried to raise an entirely different spectre, that of a Goldwater who would turn the Republican Party over lock, stock and barrel to the Negroes. IF THIS business of trying to grind a front-running Republican candidate for presidential nomination between the two stones of "lily-whitisrtV* and "coaUblack- a National Guard officer were riot ism" Aren't serious* it would be almost inexpressibly ftfnny. For, as* anybody who has respect for facts knows, Goldwater happens to be both an integrationist and a constitutionalist, which means that he is for extending rights to the Negro without infringing these same rights as they apply to other people. This is not a pro-white attitude, it is simply pro-American. The Goldwater record on integration, unlike that of some of his recent detractors, is not of the Johnny-come-lately type. It began in 1946, when, as an organizer and officer of the Arizona Air National Guard, Goldwater helped to integrate the armed forces of his own home state. Incidentally, the Arizona National Guard was the first post-war National Guard to be integrated. Barry Goldwater's activities as lost on the Negro community in Phoenix, Arte. The Negroes came to him after he had been elected to the Phoenix City Council with complaints that the restaurant at Sky HJirbor, the municipal airport, was just as effectively Jim Crow as any public facility in the Deep South. The City Council, under Goldwater prodding, proceeded to desegregate the restaurant. This was quifckly followed * up with a campaign to desegregate the Phoenix theatres and to eliminate the local Carver High School as a separate Negro educational institution, For his work as a leader in this campaign, and for his financial contributions to the Urban League, Goldwater was presented with a member-, ship card in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. In Goldwater's own Arizona" de­ partment stores, Negroes worked alongside whites and, In* dians for 26 years. The Goldwa* ter stores have also employed Mexicans. WITH the Arizona Indians, Goldwater has a quite special relationship. When he was part- owner of Rainbow Lodge on the Navajo Reservation, Goldwater built the first airstrip in the area, He used to take Indians on plane rides, giving many ot them their first experience in flying. A familiar figure on the Navajo Reservation, Goldwater is sometimes referred to by the Indians as "Mn America" — and the older Indians actually call airplanes "Goldwa- ters." Since the Indian population, like that of the American bison, has lately been on the increase, the time may come \yhen Barry Goldwater will be singled out to become the leader of a dt'amatic piish for "Indian lady. rights." the Navajo* and th« Mopis of Arizona have been supporting Goldwater's party by a seven-to-one registration on the local reservations. There are. In* cidenlally, softie 88,000 Indians In Arizona as compared Jo 43,009 Negroes. THE FACfS about Goldwater's integrationist record are not \yelU known • simply because very few people have bothered to ask about them, in this connection Goldwater, who relishes jokes about snakes, might recall the lady who, upon an open request from the stage, left her seat near the aisle and went up to play tricks with a python. When she returned to her seat in the audience, her husband looked at her with amazement and sard: "I didn't know you were a snake charmer."

WASHINGTON (NEA) - Regardless of new developments in the rail labor crisis, the long-term problems of featherbedding remain. They are: How to compensate railway labor for jobs lost through technological improvements introduced by management. How to setUe disputes arising from this issue. What additional legislation is necessary. THOUGH THE National Media- r tion Board was created by the Railway I,abor Act of 1934 to settle disputes between rail management and labor, it has been of questionable value for 20 years. In 1941 President Franklm D. Roosevelt appointed an emergency board to mediate a railway labor dispute. But the President went beyond the board's recommendations to give the Brotherhoods bigger benefits. From then on railway labor took its grievances direct to the White House, over the heads of fact-finding panels, to get better settlements, and the Railway Labor Act was circumvented. FOR SOME WEEKS. Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirta has been saying that if this country could get by without a rail strike this year, no new labor legislation would be passed by Congress. Even so, there is no assurance that similar labor disputes affecting the national interest will not rise again. The long-range question of how they shall be handled therefore remains. The most frequently suggested remedy has been that there should be some provision for government seizure and operation of industries threatened by strikes which affect the whole economy. Under one recent proposal, the President would be authorized to direct the attorney general to petition any U. S. district court to appoint a special receiver to take possession of and operate any plant, mine or other facility subject to a labor dispute, to protect national fiealth and safety. This provision was largely kissed off when it was introduced. President Truman had suggested it before. The House passed it, but the Senate killed it, and it is still viewed with much skepticism there. Under a 1S16 law authorizing such action in war times, the federal government has seized the railroads four tinges in the past 20 years to prevent work stop- 7 *l*V9 threatened 'compulsory arbitration,' and ttill it won't work!'* in 1943, 1946, 1948 and Daniel I. Loomis of the American Association of Railroads, is to make recommendations of presidential emergency boards final and binding on both labor and I management. Ui im PAST, railway laho* pages 1950. Railroad management contends that government seizure settles nothing and coerces acceptance of labor's demands. The alternative, as outlined by President iently has opposed compul* . irbitration. But in a new contract just signed by the Broth* erhood of Railway Clerks with Pan American Airways, impartial adjudication of disputes is pfovid* eel. This may set a precedent, In the current four-year-old dis« pute over railroad work rules, ac* ceptance of technological changes by the on-train brotherhoods, an<J elimination of jobs considered unnecessary by management, th& issue not only is job security but also union survival. Acceptance of the recommendations made by the presidential special commission under Judge Rifkind in 1962 and an emergency board under Judge Rosenman earlier this year probably would mean eventual liquidation of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen.
