CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - A black development organization, born of James F o r in a n ' s fiery Black Manifesto in 1969 and a cause of anguished turmoil in the churches ever since, today is spearheading a wide variety of aid projects—but on thinning capital. "We're learning, producing and staying alive," says the Rev. Calvin B. Marshall, president of the Black Economic Development Conference—BEDC,. "It's pretty near a miracle what we've been able to do with what we've had to do it with." Altogether so far, mainly white churches have contributed about $306,000 to the operation —mostly from Episcopalians and United Presbyterians. It has gone into a number of educational, publishing and community- help ventures. But far beyond that, the resulting ferment in the churches has led to their putting additional millions into their own black development programs, through, black leadership within the denominations. The Rev. Mr. Marshall estimates the issue has "shaken loose" nearly $200 million for enhancing black conditions. "From the beginning, we knew this effort was not just for BEDC, but to free up money," he said. As for BEDC itself, the coordinating agency formed as a result of the manifesto's demand for millions in reparations from churches to support black self- development, he added in an interview: "Most people now realize that our thing is not blowing up the Empire State Building. Our, thing is liberating black people from racism and oppression and giving them a sense of being."

Some of them, notably the publishing ventures, already are virtually self-sustaining, the Rev. Mr. Marshall said, adding that "we've made our funds cover a lot of mileage" in accumulating facilities, equipment and going programs. He added, chuckling, that some white church groups spend as much—$300,000—on a single conference, without any tangible gains to show for it. "But we had a commitment to ourselves, to black people and to the public generally to get results," he said. However, financial contributions have dwindled, now amounting only to an occasional $1,000 or $2,000 from scattered individual congregations, and numerous projects remain tentative or still in planning stages.

The trade bill, tied up in the Senate and apparently doomed to die with the 91st Congress, provides a clear example. Nobody will ever know exactly how much public and private money was spent on the preparation of the comp 1 e x and controversial measure, with its provisions for import quotas, and on efforts to influence opinion about it. But available evidence indicates the total could top $1 million. The price of transcribing printing alone is a formidable item. An estimate based on known costs points to an outlay of more than $100,000. Congressional work on the bill got under way toward the end of 1969 when the staff of the House Ways and Means Committee, working with Tariff Commission experts, began putting together statistical and other background information. Their product was a 425-page book, produced by the Government Printing Office fof the use of the committee. The committee opened " hearings May 11, 1970. In 23 days of sessions, it heard more than 400 witnesses, who appeared at their own—or their businesses' —expense, armed with at least 50 copies of their testimony. When the GPO printed the testimony, it ran to 4,651 pages, bound into 16 volumes. After hearing witnesses in public, the committee went into executive session covering 21 working days to decide on the provisions. By that time, work on the measure was taking the ftffl time of a half-dozen high level professional staff members. Additionally, the executive sessions were attended daily by professional level representatives of the State, Commerce, Labor, Interior, Treasury and Agriculture departments, the Tariff commission and the office of the U.S. Trade Negotiator. When the sessions ended with decisions made, the staff work of putting the bill into legislative language and writing a report to explain it continued. The bill itself ran to 06 pages and the report to 190. Both were printed in quantity. When the contents of the committee bill became known, lobbying and propaganda efforts by industries, unions and other interests affected redoubled. House debate on the bill, conducted under the customary tight rules ""permitting no amendments on revenue measures, took two days. Passage sent the bill— and the action—to the Senate. There the process of committee consideration was repeated, though on a smaller scale. The Senate Finance Committee held only brief hearings. As the Senate, delayed by disputes and filibuster threats, found itself facing a mountain of undone business, the committee decided to consolidate welfare, Social. Security and trade legislation into one mammoth bill. But with mandatory adjournment around the corner, the Senate has not agreed on such a measure and House leaders have served notice that even if the other chamber produces a bill, legislation of this magnitude cannot be revised and agreed to in the few remaining days of the 91st Congress.
