Fight Over CM I Rights Bill May Affect Political Careers By JAMES MARLOW Associated jPms New* Analyst WASHINGTON f#-Ifl the 20th century the Defnocratic and Republican parties — no matter what their campaign promises — have ttevef jbassed a civil rights bill through Congresi. Republicans are trying it now In face of a Seriate filibuster by Southern Democrats. If they win, some political careers may be affected. And Republican hopes for future election victories — based on expectation of a grateful North v ern Negro vote—go up. Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower have helped eliminate racial discrimination — by executive order. But Democrats' promises of action on a civil rights bill through Congress have been a political joke. They couldn't, as a party, make good. Southern Democrats were always there to block the way with a filibuster. Any filibuster could have been broken if enough Northern, and Western Democrats and Republicans were willing to team up to do it, It never happened. Republicans Outnumbered The outnumbered Republicans can't do it now unless enough of them, plus enough Northern and Western Democrats, join forces. That remains^ to be seen. Despite present excitement, passage of a civil rights bill now is far from a fact. There is political irony In the present situation. In Congress, where they are the minority party, the Republicans leading the way. Sen. Kno.wland of California, tain on the civil rights side. Senate Republican leader, is cap- tiffiftt Hfefild, Carroll, low* W*<in*tday, July 10, 195? He can get only political good out of this, win or lose. He is leaving the Senate next year and may seek the Republican presidential nomination! in i960, He can expect Northern -Negroes, if h» should get the nomination, to remember him as a man who fought for civil rights. Johnson on Spot On the other hand the Senate's Democratic leader, Lyndon Johnson of Texas, is on a hot spot. He's a Southerner, But he's a man who also may have presidential ambitions in 1960. If h* votes against this civil rights bill his chance* of heading the Democratic ticket diminish, if they're not wrecked. If he doesn't oppose it in some way — if only by trying to get the bill softened by amendments — he may hurt himself in Texas. He's been staying pretty much in the background. And right beside Knowland stands Vice President Nixon, who at the moment might seem to have the inside track for the Republican nomination three years from now, For that matter, most of the Republicans are standing with Knowland. They are therefore carrying through on campaign promises — although vague in the Republican 1956 platform — and on Eisenhower's program. The President in his State of the Union message last Jan. 10 called for passage of this civil rights bill. The Democratic 1956 platform on civil rights was weak by comparison. It was a time when the test of the party didn't want to give the Southerners an excuse to Vole for Eisenhower. But both parties had their eyes on the South that year. Neither party in its platform was willing to go so far as to say it endorsed the , Supreme Court ban on public school segregation. If the Republicans can win passage of a meaningful civil rights .bill, they can hope for a strong Negro vote in the large industrial centers of the North. It might be enough to let them regain control of Congress id the 1958 elections and retain the presidency and Congress in 1960. Demo Grip Slips The Roosevelt-Truman grip on the Negro vote has slipped since Eisenhower entered the White House. After the 1956 elections, The Associated Press f reported Nov. 9: "In nearly all the great Northern centers of Negro population there was a definite trend away from the Democratic ticket although not enough to. give Eisenhower a majortiy in any major area of Negro registration." This trend was characterized at the time by James L. Hicks, managing editor of Harlem's largest newspaper, the Amsterdam News, as a divorce from the Democrats rather than a marriage to the Republicans. He said: "The divorce is carrying on a flirtation with a new boy friend but she isn't going to invite him in unless he puts a ring on her finger.". . This civil rights -bill, no doubt, would be the ring. Visitors from Connecticut- in Westside Home Khrushchev(Continued from Page 1) to change our Leninist policies." Prague Radio said the Soviet leaders had come to the Czech capital for "discussions of great political significance," especially since ^hese followed so closely upon the removal of Georgi Malen- kov, V. M. Molotov, Lazar Kaga- novicji and Dmitri Shepilov. The Kremlin leaders exchanged warm embraces with Zapotocky, Prime Minister vilem Siroky and other Red leaders. As they marched to a flag-decorated platform in front of the station a crowd of young Czech children almost buried Khrushchev and Bul- ganin, in bouquets of roses. For Bulganin there were thorns as well as flowers. The sharp bouquets' badly scratched his hands, and he wiped the blood spots with his handkerchief as he stepped on the platform. . After his speech, Khrushchev climbed into the first automobile with Zapotocky and Czech party boss Antonin Novotny, leaving Bul- ganin to follow in a second car with Siroky. The- parade route led through Wencelas Square, which was crowded with hundreds of thousands of Czechs, mosj of them organized into flag-waving cheering sections. Shops and factories had been given a four-hour holiday. After the leaders passed the crowd dispersed so rapidly that some cars in the official party were halted temporarily. Premiers Sprky and Bulganin, sharing the second car, looked anything but at ease. It was obvious both had worries. Khrushchev praised President Sapotocky in his address on arrival. At the frontier .Tuesday he praised Novotny, the Czech party boss. w But there was, no mention in ei ther address of Siroky, 54, who has headed the Czechoslovak government since March 21, 1953. He premiership 16 days after Stalin's death. The New York Times said dip lomatic reports indicate Bulganin also may be on the way out. Harrison E. Salisbury, former Times bureau chief' in Moscow, wrote that the reports indicate Bulganin and President Klementi Voroshilov deserted Khrushchev at a critical moment in the power struggle which ended in the ouster of Georgi Malenkov, V. M. Molotov, Lazar Kaganovich and Dmitri Shepilov. If Bulganin resigns, Salisbury said, it might pave the way for appointment of 'Khrushchev's ally, Marshal .Georgi K. Zhukov, the defense minister and army chief who sided with the Communist Party chief.

It's "Tiny" (Mouse) vs. "Tiger" (Cat) with the pets' master, 13«year-old Michael "Sonny" Rafach, as referee. Place: The back yard of Sonny's Kingston, Pa., home. The neighbor's dog couldn't resist the temptation to get into the act. The unusual friendship between the mouse and the three-month-old kitten had been formed just three days before. "Tiny" jumped into a two-foot-deep cellar window well and couldn't get out. He found himself at the mercy of "Tiger," who came to Investi- gate the squeaks. The kitten jumped into the/well and started to push Tiny around with his paw. The doughty mouse .stood his ground and, on his hind legs, struck back like a boxer. Sonny rushed to the scene of squealing and scuffling. Re quickly realized the kitten wasn't harming the mouse, so he decided to let (hem continue. They've been "friendly enemies" ever liaee. But "Tiny" had better not make one false move! Veteran Iowa Publisher Dies After a Long Illness Russell(Continued from Page 1) language sponsored by the admin- OTTUMWA (AV-John Huston, 76, longtime publisher of the Ottumwa Courier who was prominent in state and national newspaper circles, died late Tuesday of a heart ailment. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at St. Mary's Church in Ottumwa. A requiem mass will be celebrated by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. W. E. Cullinan with Burial in Calvary Cemetery here. , The veteran newspaperman suffered a heart attack at his home May 17 and had been in critical condition at St. Joseph Hospital since that time. He turned for the worse early Tuesday and the end came shortly before 6 p.m. Although he had been in poor health for the last six years he remained at his desk in the Courier office until the time of his heart attack. Huston was born April 3, 1881, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Chri^ Huston, As a boy he sold newspapers on the street and carried them to home subscribers. He was 16 when he took his first full time job with the daily and weekly Ottumwa Courier in 1897 and his service of nearly 60 years exceeded that; of any other Courier employe. Circulation Specialist During the early years he became a specialist in the circulation department and men trained by him have gone to other newspapers in the Lee. group. He became known through the Midwest as an expert •in circulation problems. Huston's starting pay on the Courier was $4 a week but later he worked in nearly every department. He eventually became advertising manager and later business manager. He was named publisher in 1928 after the death of James F. Powell, who had been publisher for 21 years. Association President In the newspaper organization field, Huston was president of the Iowa Press Assn. in 1936 and received its Master Editor-Publisher award in 1950. He served three years as director of the Inland Press and the American Newspa per Publishers Assn. Throughout the years Huston had a prominent part in civic, charitable and professional organizations. He was president of the Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce in 1932 and for many years had been a director of the chamber. Also in 1932 he was Community Chest director when that agency raised more money for Ottumwa chari ties than ever before or since. Huston was a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Colum bus. In political life he was a Re publican and served as a delegate to the' Republican national convention at Cleveland in 1936. The Lee group,, of which the Courier is part, was founded .by the late A. W. Lee. It now comprises 10 newspapers, two television stations and two radio stations;. They 'include the Davenport Times, Davenport Morning Democrat, Mason City Globe-Gazette, Muscatine Journal, KGLO and KGLO-TV of Mason City, in Iowa; La Crosse Tribune and Madison State Journal in Wisconsin; Han-' nibal Courier-Post and KHQA-TV of Hannibal, in Missouri; Kewa-i nee-Star Courier, and radio station WTAD of Quincy, in Illinois, and Lincoln Star, in Nebraska. Huston was married Aug. 24, 1909, to Rose Ella Meany of Ottumwa. Survivors, besides his widow include a daughter, Mrs. George Scully of Waterloo; a son, Bernard J.i Huston of Ottumwa, and six grandchildren, Bernard K, John, Ann and Jane Huston of Ottumwa, and George and Mary Jo Scully of Waterloo. istration House and approved by .the Mr. and Mrs. Charles H.
