EDITORS NOTE •- The recent promotion of three Negroes in the Dallas, Tex., post office touched off ti hometown controversy that spread to Washington. Just how nrc post office employes selected for promotion and how much lee- Way do postmasters have in making promotions? By 8TANM5Y UEIBUCIt WASHINGTON (API—A month ago, three college-educated No groes won promotions in the Dallas, Tex., post office. What pushed them ahead—ability or the color of their skins? The promotion of the three set off a tempest in Dallas and in Washington. Somo critics cried discrimination agiiinsl whiles. This Dallas controversy may be u harbinger of tilings to come, for tempests like it may brew again iiml again in the Negro struggle for belter jobs and better conditions. Rep. Bruce Alger. R-Tex., who represents Dallas, says the promo- lions there show llmt "in n direct appeal to racial prejudice and in an effort to submit to threats of violence, the administration has ordered that civil seivice procedures be ignored and promotions made strictly on the basis of race." Clarence Mitchell, Washington representative of the National Association for (lie Advancement of Colored People, dismisses this argument. "The Dallas promotions," he says, "were just one of those things where the government is trying to correct an inequity!" Objection Some postal unions contended thai the most qualified of the three Negroes was promoted over 53 white postal workers higher on I he Dallas promotion list. Lee C. White, President Kennedy's assistant special counsel in charge of civil rights, says the promotions were made In accord ance with all civil service com mission requirements. The Dallas story began in May 19fi1 when the Post Office Department inaugurated n "merit pro motion plan." Before then, accord- Ing to Richard J. Murphy, assistant postmaster general in charge of personnel, local postmasters could pretty much decide on their own just whom they would pro- mole. Unrler the present plan, workers qualified for promotion are put on a list in order of special point totals. These totals arc based on (1) their score on an examination for prospective supervisors, (2) their years of service, and (3) a numerical evaluation given them by their two immediate supervisors. Murphy says the list is not a strict qualification list: postmasters are not required to promote the top man when an opening comes. When a list has less than 100 names on it, the postmaster may pick any man on the list. But, when a list lias more than 100 names, the postmaster, unless he lias permission from Washington, must try ti pick someone from the top nine. The Dallas list had 400 names. Last January, Postmaster General J. Edward Day called 600 postmasters to the University of Oklahoma for an unusual seminar. Among the topics discussed was the post office's "program for progress"—a plan to end any dis- iriminatlon against Negroes and other non-whites in post office hiring, training and promotion. Under the plan, postmasters of large offices must make monthly reports on their progress. The aim is to report to President Kennedy next Marcli that the post office has MADE FREE With Purchase of Material at $1.99 Yd. and Up Our experienced personnel will assist you with your decorating needs.

In addition to the University of Oklahoma seminar, 27 postmasters and four regional postal officials from the South have been called to Day's office in Washington since May 23. He has asked them to speed up Ihr-ir programs to end any possible discrimination. Murphy says Day and other Washington officials did not In- slruc.l the Southern postmasters how to do this. The method, Murphy says, was left to the local officials. During this campaign. Murphy says, Day discovered that the Dallas post office, unlike other offices in Texas, never had a Negro supervisor. Day wrote local officials in Dallas and asked them to look into the matter. The regional headquarters recommended that the Dallas postmaster select Negroes for the next three openings. But, when the openings came, no Negro was among the top nine on the list. Murphy says Postmaster W. B. Hudson asked Washington for permission to go outside the top nine. Permission was granted. Three Negroes, Buford R. Tyler, Andrew J. Galloway and Her- sc.hel Gilllns, were picked. The highest was No. 54 on the list. Their comparative low position on the list, Murphy says, may be due to discrimination in the Dallas post office. Murphy also notes that Negroes usually have low seniority because jobs in the post office did not open to them until after World War II. Murphy rejects all arguments that the department is practicing discrimination in reverse. Two weeks ago, he says, the Post Office Department let a Southern regional office pick a white man as postmaster although a Negro was first on the promotion list there. John W. Macy Jr., chairman of the Civil Service Commission, says that the post office, when it promoted the three Negroes, acted in accordance with its own merit promotion program and within the general guidelines of :he Civil Service Commission. tf.S.Newsmeti Manhandled In Viet Nam SAIGON, Viet Narn (A P) South Viet Nam's American press corns has appealed to President Ken ncdy to support a protest againv manhandling of newsmen hy Vietnamese secret police.
