Experience) Sharp Dispute on Over Rights Bill n.V JAMBS Anrtlvsl .WASHINGTON <AP)-S«ilhern politicians have attacked Presl- dent Kennedys civil rights bill, now In Congress, from seven main directions. But Mlsslsslpplans pnHk'iilnrly Imve personally attacked the President nitd his brother, Ally. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy. Although Urn announced purpose of the bill Is to guarantee Negroes equal treatment, the Southerners, all Democrats, have spent llltle time on Negroes' rights. Here are the seven directions they've token so fur in stato- ni«nls at congressional committee hearings: The Kennedys are trying to grab more power and have on- couriigcd the Negroes' dcmofr Ktrntionn; Communists must bo mixed up In (he Negroes' activities; and the bill is unconsUtu- lloiinl, is a shortcut to tyranny, is an Invitation to violence, und would deprive all Americans of personal and property rights. The most controversial part ol the bill — Ihe one which hns brought Ihe mosl strenuous Southern objections — involves puhllc accommodations. Public I'liiww It would ban discrlmimilion against Negroes in business places catering to Ihe public, such as stores, restaurant, motel. The peronal attacks on Ihe President, and his brother came from three Wlississipplans — I'lov. Ross Bamett, Ally. Gen. Joe T. Patterson and Sen. John F. Stennis — and from Alabama's Gov. Coorge C. Wallace.

Slennis called the civil right's bill a "colossal grab for power by the attorney general," Wallace accused the President of bringing the nation "to IIif brink of r civil war" by what He termed an attempt to appease the leaders of the Negro civil rights demonstrations. South Carolina Gov. Donald Russell denounced the bill as "coercive legislation" which will "breed resistance and perhaps violence." Louisiana Rep, Joe D. Waggonner Jr. said the President has issued an "open Invllation to mass violence" by warning that if Congress fails to enact his bill Negroes will seek a "remedy 1 In the streets. Kcd Influence , Wallace, South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond and Arkansa.; Ally. Gen. Bruce Bennett though', they saw Communist influence behind Negro demands for equal rights. None proved anything of the kind. Sons. Sam J. Ervin Jr. of North Carolina and James 0. F/astland of Mississippi, members of hte Senate Judiciary Committee, hit the bill from another direction. Ervin called it a "short-cut .to government tyranny" and Eastland denounced it as a "complete blueprint for a totalitarian state," Ervin, once a justice on the North Carolina Supreme Court, in civil rights fights in Congi-esp over the years usually has challenged the constitutionality of a bill. He challenged this one, too. He said it would deprive all Americans of personal and property rights. Kennedy, anticipating this kind of ai-gument when he sent his civil rights bill to Congress along with his message explaining it. said: "Abraham Lincoln, in issuing the Emancipation Proclamation 100 years ago, was also accused of violating the property rights of slave-owners. Indeed, there is an age-old saying that 'property has its duties as well as its rights.'' Charge Wennerstroni Was a Known Spy STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — Air Force Col.

EASY WAYS TO iUY ftMUURGHARtl f OCTOBER CHARGE • DEFERRED PAYMENTS f 9AIH WILSHIRE CENTER CHICAGO (AP> — Members of the Congress of RaciaJ Equality— which has been demonstrating for weeks over alleged segregation in the public schools—Tuesday conferred with members of the school board. In a special meeting requested by CORE, four board members and Superintendent Benjamin C. Willis listened for two hours as parents and civil rights spokes- nen aired their grievances. Willis declined an invitation to give the group of 100 persons his philosophy of racial integration in education. He remained silent during the meeting and walked out at the end with brief words: "My staff and I will review all these matters, as will members of the board. There isn't anything more for me to say," Other school officials present were board president Clair M. Roddewig and board member* Warren Bacon, Fairfax M. Cone and Bernard S. Friedman. Segregated The speakers insisted that Chicago public schools are segregated in fact, if not in intent, because of the system's policy of limiting attendance to residents of the surrounding neighborhood. They demanded an open enrollment policy, whereby any student could attend any public school in the city. It was also charged that boundaries in at least two high schools were changed on June 10 in order to perpetuate the segregation of Negroes, and in one case, Jewish, students. Other demands: —The racial integration of iac-i ullies and administrative staffs. —The improvement of trade and technical education. —The end of mobile classrooms set up in a South Side Negro neighborhood. —And the dropping of police charges against 13 demonstrators arrested during a sit-in at the board offices earlier this month. One speaker, was Rep. Charles F. Armstrong, D-Chicago, author of the state law which bans seg- regation in school systems. Armstrong, a Negro, delivered a verbal attack on Willis. Attack He said, "You can't negotiate with n persons who feels that all IJH rents are stupid, that only he knows the answers, and that the answers he knows, only he lias the intelligence to understand." Meanwhile, the Board of Education denied in court that neighborhood boundary lines have occas- sionaliy been altered to insure segregated schools. The denial, filed in U.S. District Court Tuesday was in answer to a suit filed by 20 Negro families which charges that their children attend segregated schools. The board conceded that it follows a neighborhood school policy but said this is merely a method of registration and has nothing to do with race. The board said, "Pupils are required to attend the public school in the neighborhood or subdisti'ict in which their parents reside and no transfers are granted. . . except for reasons of health or other factors having nothing to do with the race of the pupil." The board also conceded that some U.S. cities, including Chicago, have "persons of common race, nationality or religion, or persons of comparable economic circumstances, living in the same geographical area," but this is the result of "social economic forces."
