There was no opposition to an Increase, but the 750 delegates At tending the five-day convention appeared sharply divided on whether members should be taxed $2,50 or $2.90 a month for support of the International. The per capita lax now Is $2 a month. A majority report called for adoption of the $2,50 levy, with 35 cents of the total earmarked for the union's defense fund, Which provides benefits for members on strike; But a 'trtlnority-re- port that received strong backing luring debate on the Issue, roc- nniended the $2.90 levy, with 75 cents to be set aside for benefits, Proponents of the $2,50 levy de- cndbd the figure, saying it was jased on ability of many of the unions members to pay the pro- xjscd increase. City Support For Kennedy Seen Down By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) - Repub- ican strategists are beginning to 'eel that northern reaction to President Kennedy's position on civil rights may'cut deepy into his big city backing in the 1964 election. * It's not something they care to discuss publicly, but these strategists said privately white resentment against Negro demands for speedy equality on all fronts — Including housing — may cost Kennedy votes in the areas where they credit him with winning the I960 election. National Chairman William E. Miller contends that any significant reduction in Democratic margins in the metropolises would enhance GOP chances of carrying such stales as New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan and California. The Republican theory is that most of the Negroes voted for Kennedy in 1960 and are likely to do so ; again.. Bui party strategists believe that whiles who don't want Negroes moving into their neighborhoods will-: feel that Kennedy moved top fast on the issue. This view is shared by Republicans who support the President's civil rights legislative proposals and others who are opposed to at least a portion of them. A Republican senator who is critical of some sections of the Kennedy program said he had received a substantial number of communications from constituents expressing resentment about Negro demonstrations and fear that their Investment in homes might decline in value if . the unofficial color line were broken in their communities. A GOP senator who supports the President's program estimated that up to 30 per cent of the residents of a large eastern city who give him the benefit of their views oppose Kennedy's proposals and resent the action of the President in pressing them. Republicans know they are going to have to handle the issue gingerly. From liberal Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y,, to conservative Sen. Barry Goldwater, R- Ariz., they agree it would be fatal for them to become tagged as "the white man's party."
