SI Stop False Ploy on Civil Rights By JAMES MARLOW Associated P.ress News Analyst WASHINGTON l/P> - The most significant thing about the Congress just ended was that Democrats and Republicans finally stopped • playing phony with Negroes and passed a civil rights bill, the first in B2 years. Until now, promises by the parties on civil rights were political bunk. What they did this year they could have done any time in those 82 years by teaming up to crush the opposition of Southern Democrat*. Did the Opposite Here's an example of how they did the opposite: In 1949, last time the Democrats made a stab at a civil rights bill, they could have kept the Senate in continuous session to try to smash the Southern filibuster which finally killed the bill. But they didn't. • And Republicans, playing foot­ sie with the Southerners, helped them put through a Senate rule change which made breaking a filibuster harder than it had ever been. Reasons for this year's action Included the political reality of the importance of the Northern Negro vote and, no doubt, psychological impacts which reflected changing times. ' Shift Toward GOP Democrats had had the Negro vote in their pocket since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt. But Northern Negroes, wanting better treatment for themselves and Southern Negroes, began shifting towards the Republicans. Their vote in the 1958 congressional elections may be a major factor in deciding which party wins control of Congress. Both parties knew that. This year the Republicans pushed for civil rights, -promising an all-out fight. In the almost evenly divided Senate neither party by itself could put the bill over. If the Democrats balked, they'd be blamed for killing it. If they went along, they could claim credit for passing it. They went along. Adroitly they avoided a party split by helping the Southerners eliminate the toughest part of the bill and limiting it to voting rights. And the Southerners, astonishingly enough, didn't filibuster beyond the one-man effort of Sen. Thurmond (D-SO. Odds Too Much They said the odds against them were too much. But there were other factors at work. More and more Southern Negroes have been voting. A filibuster wouldn't prevent more from doing so. Further, Southerners had been able to argue—ever since the Supreme Court's 1896 decision permitting separate but equal facilities for the races—that segrega- EUROPEAN UNITY . . . Each member nation of |he European coal and steel community is is- " suing a postage, stamp based on the theme of "United Europe, Its contribution to peace as a source of prosperity." The Netherlands stamp Is pictured above, with its six-pointed star in the shape of a blade wheel symbolizing the activities of member countries. The word "Europa" Is spelled out at the points of the star. The emblem, upper right, symbolizes development of European Integration. Hon, which is discrimination, was constitutional. This argument was destroyed May 17, 1954. when the present Supreme Court ruled segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. The court has banned segregation in other areas of Southern life since then. Some Southerners .accepted the court's ruling; some agreed that integration, at least in schools, was inevitable; some defied the court. Thus the once-solid Southern resistance had been undermined. And public school segregation in the South has begun to crumble. These things had to have an effect on the Southerners in Congress. Congress as a whole was faced with the challenge of finally doing something on civil rights or, by default and in effect, watching the court legislate civil rights bit by bit through court decisions. And there were other pressures on Congress to act. Southern resistance to school integration had made the nation more conscious of segregation than ever before and at a time when this country was trying to win the colored peoples of the world away from communism. And this year many organizations — particularly the National Assn. *for the Advancement of Colored People—put the heat on both parties in Congress and on the Eisenhower administration. Stock Market Trends Today Hard to Guess By SAW( DAWSON NEW YORK Ml — Sudden wide swings in stock > prices of late makes today's sluggish market one of the hardest W guess in many months as you may discovered to your sorrow or surprise. Even the non-stock buying public is confuted and is trying to read portents into the stock index. Stock price drops usually alarm the public. Also the present sideward drift in business activity makes it nervous. For most of August the stock price trend was down. But a few brisk rallies upset some of the bearish thinking. Bears Show Views By pushing prices down the bears have been showing their view of the course of business for the rest of the year. Since late July tbeir thinking has been that the outlook is for lower net earnings for many corporations, which could threaten a dip in dividend j rates. '* Some think the profit drop will result from steadily rising oper- | ating costs. Others think sales I may drop, paring earnings, or that falling sales and rising costs | will coincide to a company's sor: row. j Defense cutbacks also have ! scared the market into brief tailspins. The bulls have had some brief moments of glory, however. When Russia announced it had an inter- i continental missile in operating ! shape, and when the London dis- | armament talks seemed headed j for failure, resultant expectations i of increased government spending ! here for defense led the bulls to ; bet that conditions in some de! fense industries would be reversed. Inflation Bullish Factor Some unreconstructed bulls believe that*inflation always will be with us. They hold that prices will go right on rising chronically. And inflation is a bullish factor in the stock market. The American character, is bullish by nature. Most Americans feel that business should always I be better, year after year, that I industry must always expand, that I incomes must always increase, : and the standard of living always j rise. i When things tend to drift, as i they have this summer, it worries [us. Actually the country generally ! e n j o y s exceptional prosperity. Since World War II the course of the economy has been upward al- I most steadily. Two slight dips — i in 1949 and in 1953-54 — fright- 1 ened some folk more than they should have. She's a Champ Grandma: 133 Graridchi l.dren CORNWALL, Ont. MV-Newly-born Nicole Constantineau is the 124th grandchild for Mrs. Alsime Bazinet;. She has nine great-grandchildren. At 62 years of age Mrs. Bazinet has seen 16 of her 17 children — one died — married and raising families. Sbe says she knows the names of all her descendants, but sometimes forgets their ages. Baby Nicole, for instance, is one of 16 children in the family of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Constantineau here. Mrs. Bazinet has lived in Cornwall since the death of her husband 10 years ago caused her to give up a farm. She's always ready to help her family in the cases of new arrivals or sickness. "1 help them when I can." she says, "but I never give advice. They must make their own lives." She cannot understand present-day families of only one or two children. "A big family is a good thing," she says. "When t,h e baby comes, the bread will come." The largest family gathering in recent years brought 70 grandchildren together, but Mrs. Bazinet doubts whether the entire family could meet at the same time without hiring a hall.
