Grutzmacher, Knox College assistant professor of English, "Books and Children," featured a meeting of the Junior Woman's Club. The speaker stressed the need for suiting books to the tastes, abilities, and problems of particular readers. Examples of current children's books were discussed and examined by the audience at the end of the session. After the talk a question period followed in which specific reading problems were discussed. In keeping with the evening's theme, each member brought a children's book for donation to the Free Kindergarten and the Knox County Day Nursery. A total of 34 books was divided equally between the two schools.

Thursday, Oct 1 7. 1 963 25 SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP) Two doctors, a church leader, an Attorney and a sociolgist have been appointed to the Leg* (stature's Commision on Birth Control. Selection of two Democratic House members remains before the 15-member group can begin its study of the controversial question of providing contracep­ tive! for women on public aid rolls. Gov. Otto Kerner Wednesday named the five public members. They are: Dr. Robert McCready, chief of the obstetrical department at Little Company of Mary Hospital, Chicago; Dr. John Troxel, Chicago, vice p r e s i d e n t and medical director of Blue Cross and Blue Shield; George Sisler, State Church(Continued from page 3) commodations through the land. One team member said that Congress has already passed laws telling restaurant owners how they should shape their oleomargarine and what they should put in their menus. The civil rights bill is much more realistic and essential than that, he added. Critics of Title II argue that it would stretch the clause beyond reasonable bounds, open the door to federal regulations yet undreamed of, produce a maze of litigation and still not stop segregation in all privately owned public accommodations. "We realize that the bill will not solve our racial problems, but it provides a basis to fight discrimination in some areas, especially voting," said Herluf M. Jensen of New York, a team member. Jensen is a founder of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee and secretary of the Faith and Life program of the Lutheran Church in America. He criticized U.S. Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy's call for moderation of the civil rights bill. The bill, which came out of a House subcommittee this week, is regarded as more controversial that the one originally proposed by the administration, and Kennedy has advocated its revision. "We are sorry that Bobby at first fought hard for this bill and now recommends revision," Jensen complained. In a short evening address to some 75 white and colored people at the First Baptist Church, Jensen charged that discrimination exists in Galesburg as it does in most American communities. "The bill will not affect many small business es here which do not hire Ne groes, but larger concerns will have to account to the federal government in their employment practices," he warned. Jensen claims that 214 Congressmen are already committed to passage of the civil rights bill. Another team member observed that racial troubles, like recent demonstrations in Peoria, flare up because of misinformation. Rev. Howard Keim of the Church of the Brethren, Peoria, also charged that one of the reasons why the Peoria situation became more serious, is because "Mayor Day of Peoria did not know the score." He did not elaborate. "We have discovered an area of ignorance on the part of good people who simply evade the racial question," he said. To illustrate the existence of discrimination and the fight against it, the team brought along a witness—Charles Cobb, director of the Student Non-vio- 1 e n t Coordinating Committee (SNCC) for voter registration at Greenville, Miss. Released on bond from a Mississippi jail last Saturday, Cobb painted a grim picture of the Southern Negro's plight today. Penniless, he said he has sloshed through the bayous of Mississippi in search of Negro voters and a good hot meal during the past two years. He said he has been jailed 10 times, threatened, shot at and abused. Describes Registration Efforts Cobb started his voter registration drive in Sunflower County, Miss., the home of Sen.

Out of the three who were trying to register, one was shot and killed, the other shot and chased out of the state, and the third gave up after her husband was assassinated, Cobb related. Cobb himself was arrested by the mayor on a charge that he started the shooting to get sympathy and funds from "the northern liberals." He was later released for lack of evidence. According to his estimate, there are 900,000 Negroes in Mississippi who c o n s t i tute about 43 per cent of the voter population. Only four per cent of this is actually registered to vote, he said. In northwest Mississippi 60 per cent of the population is comprised of Negroes and none is registered in some of the parishes (counties). Out of 1,000 Negroes that Cobb and other volunteers tried to register recently, only four passed "literacy tests," he said. Cobb also charged that, while lynchings may have disappeared in the South, Negroes are still murdered by white Southerners. He listed 10 Negroes in the past six months who have lost their lives by "hit and run drivers or for resisting arrest." There are nine counties in Mississippi where no educational facilities exist for Negroes, Cobb claims, and the state spends $134 per year for each white student compared with $32 for each Negro. Relief distribution, which is left entirely in the hands of county officials, has been cut in county after county, forcing Negroes to starve or move north, Cobb related. Despite grim conditions described by the 23-year-old ex- college student, there are signs of change. "I am optimistic because Negroes are in the first stage of revolt. They can't take it any more," he said. The fourth team member was W. Harold Johnson, Springfield, associate secretary of the state council of churches' Christian Social Action group. The group left for Champaign this morning and will wind up in Carbondale on Sunday. Similar teams are visiting five Midwest states. past president of the Church Federation of Greater Chicago; Mrs. Anna J. Julian, Oak Park, a sociologist; and Virgil Bozeman, Mollne, an attorney. Sight legislators previously were named to the commission which was created by the legislature this year during a dispute over distribution of birth control devices to women on aid ro".s. Under current policy, the Illinois Public Aid Department supplies contraceptives to women living with their husbands, but unmarried women and women not residing with their husbands are ineligible. The commission will report to the 1965 legislative session on the legal and moral aspects of the birth control program as well as on proposals to extend it to all mothers receiving public aid. Legislators already named to the commission are: Sens. Donald D. Carpentier, R-East Moline; Harris W. Fawell, R-Naperville; Gordon Kerr, R-Brookport; Morgan Finley, D-Chicago; William Lyons, D-Gillespie; and Reps. Robert Austin, R- East Moline; Frank Marek, R- Chicago; and William Robinson, R-Chicago. Kerner also announced Wednesday his appointments to five other commissions. They are: Election laws: Eulalia Hotz, Edwardsville; Judge Thaddeus Adesko, Chicago; Dan Brown, Monmouth; Judge James Gray, Belleville; and Mrs. Thomas Keegan, Rockford. Atomic energy: David J. Ferguson and Dr. John A. D. Cooper, Evanston; Murray Joslin, Elmwood Park; Harvey Pearson, River Grove; William Perkins, Riverside; Dr. Robert J. Hasterlik and John R. Ryan, Chicago.
