RFK Urging Civil Rights Legislation WASHINGTON (UP!) - Atty. Gen, Robert F. Kennedy told Congress today that "no issues are more urgent" than those the administration's civil rights program seeks to resolve. Kennedy appeared before the Senate Judicia y Committee, headed by hostile Sen. James 0, Eastland, D - Miss., to urge acceptance of the President's entire civil rights package. To do so, he said in prepared testimony, would be "to bring to law what we have always known in our hearts to be justice." Cites Unrest The attorney general cited racial unrest In Cambridge, Md.; Savannah, Ga., and "countless other cities" as evidence of what happens when "long-standing legitimate grievances are not remedied under law." He thus echoed the word of his brother, President Kennedy, who said Wednesday that the way to eliminate the nation's racial troubles is to "provide for a redress of grievances," The President told a news conference that demonstrations leading to riots and violence, as in Cambridge, could only hurt the civil rights cause. But those who urge an end to demonstrations must be willing to work for equal opportunities, he said, or the problem will remain.

UN1FAX Milton Eisenhotber Recalls Tractor Deal as 'Muddled 9 By WILLIAM L. RYAN NEW YORK (AP) — An unexpected telephone call from President Kennedy involved Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower in "one of the most amazing and muddled incidents in the history of inter-American affairs," the former president's brother says. Dr. Eisenhower's book, "The Wine Is Bitter: The United States and Latin America," published by Doubleday, relates a sequel to the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. He calls the episode "the most exasperating, frustrating and enervating six weeks of my life." The story concerns the attempt to liberate Cuban invasion prisoners in return for $3-million worth of tractors. Eventually, a year and a half later, the cost was 20 times that much in medical supplies. Dr. Eisenhower intimates the episode nearly brought disaster on U.S. prestige. Not Characteristic "Fortunately," he writes, "the terrible mistakes made in the Cuban invasion and the clumsy fumbling displayed in the tractors for prisoners deal have not characterized other efforts of the Kennedy . administration in the Latin- American area.

SPECIAL SALE 99 President Kennedy called in the ambassadors of the Latin-American republics to the White House early in 1961 to formulate an Alliance (for Progress) our efforts to seek justice for the underprivileged , of Latin America through collective action have been constantly and earnestly pursued." Most of the book concerns Dr. Eisenhower's observations as special Latin-American ambassador for President Eisenhower. But a chapter is devoted to the tractors affairs which began a month after the invasion when Prime Minister Fidel Castro of Cuba offered to trade the prisoners. Kennedy Phoned , Dr. Eisenhower says President Kennedy telephoned him May 19, 1961, and explained that Castro was sending 10 prisoners to the United States to negotiate for the release of the others. The President wanted to ""estabish a committee of private citizens for the sole purpose of raising funds to buy the tractors," and said he would "explain the matter to the American people the next day." Dr. Eisenhower agreed to serve. So did the late Eleanor Roosevelt, Walter Reuther and other prominent Americans. But, Eisenhower says, the promised presidential statement never carrie. Furious criticism rose in Congress. Some congressmen demanded that Secretary of State Dean Rusk say whether the administration approved the committee's efforts. "I was beginning to be angry," Dr. Eisenhower writes. "President Kennedy had not explained our position as mere fund raisers in support of governmental policy as he had led me to believe he would. President Kennedy remained silent, despite hints in the newspapers that he was involved. I had been told that he would make clear to the public the government's role in our effort. Not only did he remain silent; he had apparently not bothered even to call in congressional leaders from both parties to brief them on tho plan, an action which might have done much to forestall criticism in Congress." Praise for McLoskey; He Lauds House After the first six months of the current session of Congress, the voting record of Rep. Robert T. McLoskey (R-lll.) has been given 100 per cent approval by the Americans for Constitutional Action. The unofficial scores were based on 10 selected votes by the Mouse of Representatives on such issues as expansion of the Rules Committee, acceleration of public works, the feed grains program and increasing the debt limit. Charles A. McManus, executive director, said the official ratings will not be compiled until Congress adjourns. McManus said McCloskey consistently voted to protect the family budget, individual freedom and the future of all American children. Cites Mouse Stand On the Congressional scene itself, McLoskey today doffed his hat to the House of Representatives. He praised the House for its stand on the Export-Import Bank Bill, as opposed to the Senate's attempt to amend it. McLoskey said the bank is an effective agent right now and has been of great value to exporters of this country. However, he charged "back door" spending, taking money out of the treasury other than by lawful appropriations, is unconstitutional. He said such financing by the bank is completely unnecessary for the Export-Import Bill. To control government finances, Mc Loskey said they should be kept as close to the people as possible.
