MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN Private Business Integration Is Key In Rights Battle By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - Should the federal government be able to tell privately owned businesses which cater to the public that they can't discriminate against Negroes? President Kennedy says yes. He asked Congress to pass a law which says yes, too. This part of his civil rights program, unfolded last week) will bring one of the toughest fights in Congress. Southern Democrats are against It. But some Republican leaders —like Sens, Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois and Barry Goldwater of Arizona—balk at it, too. Kennedy did not ask that every last business, no matter how small, be compelled to stop discriminating. But it seems likely almost every business could be affected. If Congress did pass such a law, it would not automatically stop discrimination by business places. Those who wanted to spend money fighting it could go to court. Explanation This is an explanation of what Kennedy asked, how it would work, and what it is bused on. Everything Kennedy said hinge. 1 on two sections of the Constitution: 1. The 1.4th Amendment. It snys state authorities — this includes local authorities—must treat ;<ll citizens equally. 2. The commerce clause. This empowers the federal government—and the Supreme Court has long upheld this—to regulate interstate commerce or prevent interference with it. Kennedy asked Congress to in voke both these constitutional pro visions in passing the kind of law he wants. The Mill Amendment, says only that stales must treat all citizens equally and cannot discriminate. The Supreme Court .ruled in 1883 that the amendment does not outlaw discrimination by private busine.ssfs, like hotels,' or theaters. This year the court, under the same amendment, said states or local communities .cannot compel private businesses to discriminate. It might seem, from those two decisions, that private businesses can do as they please about refusing to serve Negroes. Not quite. There can hardly be a business 1ri any place or of any size which is permitted to operate without a state or local license. Couldn't, then, a license by a city or slate to a business which refuses to serve Negroes be considered state approval or even au- horization for such discrimination? Thai's the point Kennedy rais- s. Therefore, since the 14th >mend*Hsnt forbids slate partial jation in racial discrimination, Kennedy argues Congress should pass a law forbidding it in businesses serving the public. He is also asking Congress to act under the constitutional au- hority which lets the federal gov- M-nment protect interstate commerce. Back in 1!Mf>, for instance, the Supreme Court ruled out state Jim Crow laws which segregalec Negroes in interstate buses because, the court held, segregation |>iits ton much of a burden in interstate commerce. So, with his eye on that com moire clause, Kennedy wants a law forbidding discrimination by a privately owned cstablishnien dealing with the public when a "substantial" part of its "busine.s involves interstate commerce. Two kinds of places come to mind at onrc: departmen store which sells goods it bough from all over tho country; or a hotel or motel or highway res tauranl whose main business from interstate travelers. Bui what dors ".substantial 1 mean? How much business it "substantial"? That's one place where Ken nedy's proposal will run into bitte. 1 quarrel in Congress, partic ularly among Southern Democrat and those with views like Dirk sen and Goldwaler.

"Many human activities which formerly developed on the initiative of political, financial or military leaders now do so on the in i t i a 11 v e of technically train ed men," Lauchner said. "Anc more and more positions of lead ership in industry and govern ment are being filled by men ed ucaled in technological fields." The dean said technology has been a part of the educational pic ture at Southern since 1908, when course in manual arts were offer ed primarily for those preparing to teach. In 1945, the technica courses became part, of what: thei was the College of Vocations and j Professions, later renamed t h e j School of Technology. i A variety of technical and pro-! fessional training sequences is | available within each major field! offered in the current course line-1 up at SIU.
