ALTON BUDGET PLAN 301) RIDGE Hondeil and Licensed HO 5-2011 -lAMIOS MAHI.OW Frew News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) - The crowd Is bigger, the walk shorter, but Wednesday's massive civil rights march In Washington 1 has the same symbolic purpose as Mohandas Gandhi's unforgettable salt march to the sea in 1930. Gandhi was 61 then. With a loincloth and a cane and 78 followers he marched 241 miles lo Ihc sea In 21 days lo Inspire his people to prolesl British rule and more Immediately lo a Brilish law which made 11 a crime for any Indian lo have salt he hadn't paid tax on. By (he time ho reached the sea thousands of Indians had joined him. rielied up Hull Then on Ihe beach he picked up some salt left by the waves. That was all. After that he wilh- drew. U was enough. Along In dia's long scacoasl thousands of Indians waded into the water wilh puns and helped themselves lo sail illegally. It was their way of showing they were fed up. They gol their freedom but nol for anothe 17 years. The march here will cover no more than a mile belween Iho Washinglon Monument and the Lincoln Memorial but perhaps 100,000 people, white and Negro, will take part. It will be notice in a gigantic way that Negroes are fed up with Ihe injustice of discrimination and segregation inflicted on them through all American hislory. More immediately it is notice they want Congress to pass a civil rights bill. Only a few Indians shared Gandhi's dedication lo the belief thai justice could be obtained by non-violent means. But millions listened when he preached it and tried to practice it, nol always successfully. There were blood balhs. Gliaiuli Disciple In this country, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a disciple of Gandhi and probably the most widely known Negro leader, has preached non-violence, too. Negroes have not always listened and sometimes responded to violence with violence. No doubt there will be more ol it before discrimination is ended Because Indians loved Gandhi so widely and because he was the symbol of their hopes, he coulc persuade them to end violence by Ihreatening to fast unto death. American Negroes have no sue! single leader or rally point. In fact, the Negro leadership is spli although Ihe various groups arc joining forces for the march here They will no doubt be divider' again when the march is over The Washinglon march canno be crediled to the inspiration o a single individual. It has deei roots, watered for centuries fy white Americans who huggei Iheir racial prejudice and for much of American history ex ploiled Negroes. It has been only in Ihe lasl The modern bishop of chess was an elephanl in the East.

Setback The Supreme Court sel equal treatment back by more than half •\ century when, in 189G, it ruled it was constitutional lo segregate Megroes so long as they gol equal treatment. This was a contradiction In itself. Segregation by its very nature meant inequality. Yet, as early as 1917 the court began undoing what it had done in 1896. It outlawed a Louisville ordinance which established while md Negro residential districts. Bit by bit over the following years Iho court banned other forms of segregation in suits brought by the National Associ alion for Iho Advancement of Colored People. But it wasn't until May 17, 1954, when il banned public school seg- gregalion, thai the court threw out entirely Ihe 1896 opinion by declaring thai segregalion was unconstitutional. Nevertheless, the South has fought school desegregation so idamnnlly thai today, nine years later, less than 8 per cent of Ne- ?ro school children in the soulh ;o lo desegregnled schools. That :ias been a slow, painful road. Suddenly a Negro seamslress and a few Soulhern Negro leaders speeded up Ihe whole pace of de segregation, even if Ihe schools lagged. The woman was Rosa Parks of Monlgomery, Ala. On Dec. 1, 1955 she was arrested for refusing to move lo the back of a bus. A Negro Pullman porter, E. D. Nixon, called the Rev. Mr. King that night anc said "we have taken this kind of thing loo long already." He proposed that Montgomei-y Negroes boycotl all buses. The Rev. Mr. King and others bought Ihis idea of direct, non violent resistance. For a year Monlgomery Negroes slayed of] the buses. Then, on Nov. 13, 195b the Supreme Court ruled out bus segregation. Federal Troops Next year nine Negro children were kept out of a Little Rocl school. The federal governmen sent in troops. Mrs. Parks, the nine children the government's support, and the realization of what could b> done by direct and collective ac tion inspired the Negroes. On Feb 1, 1960 Negroes moved in a nev direction. Four of them, college students began a sit-in al a while lunci counter. Sit-ins spread throug' the Soulh. So did demonslralions In 1961 more than 1,000 white and Negroes took part in freedon rides led by the Congress of Ra cial Equality. By then Negroes had grown im patient with Ihe NAACP whic had relied so long, and success fully, on seeking progress throug court action. Negro demonstrations piled u; until this year, after racial ex plosions in Birmingham an Jackson, Miss., Presidenl Ken nedy senl Congress a slronge civil righls program than an, president has offered in 100 years It's too restrained to suit man Negroes. But Wednesday's dem onslralors will be pressuring Con gross for this program by thei presence in Washington.

By SAM IJAWSON At* Business News Analyftt NEW YORK (AP) - A larger nan usual pack of problems rowds Ihe final week before Lawr Day. The long weekend will tart the fall season for many usinesses and consumers. But there is an offsetting bun- le of firm statistics and high iopes. This preholiday week will see .nother deadline in the long bub- ling feud between the railroads nd their operating unions over vork rules and employment. Both lis nnd the racial turmoil drnm- tized this week by the march on Washington hold potential threats o industry and citizens alike, if IP issues aren't solved. This week will see continuing irguments in Congress over the imited nuclear test ban treaty md the proposed tax on Amen•an purchases of foreign securi- ies and the bill lo cut individual md corporate income taxes. All tffpci phases of business plan- ling nnd operations and go deep- y into basic issues and problems ihrad.
