One of the purposes of the demonstration, besides protesting ro-j cial frijustirins, was to try to pressure Congress into passing President Kennedy's civil rights bill. Hul, orderly or not, it will not change Southern Democrats' opixi- silion. Others in Mouse and Senate have already made up their minds on how they will vote, either oul of conviction or what they think is politically shrewd. That leaves the fence sitters to impress.

"The constant development of That could make n difference in n light vole in Congress. Prejudice If white prejudice with all its new medical and surgical techniques makes the availability of cadavers increasingly essential to the advancement of medical education and science," Kerner said in a veto message Tuesday. Since 1885, he said, Illinois law has required public officials who have custody of a body to be buried at public expense to make such bodies available for use by medical schools. Such bodies are given to medical schools only in the absence of a contrary direction from the deceased by will or by a relative desiring to pay for the burial of the deceased. "This bill would permit any person not kindred ot the deceased who desires to pay tor the burial to claim the body in preference to the medical schools of the community," Kerner noted. "This would include morticians who might seek payment for the burial of an unclaimed body from funds made available by the Vet- an's Administration funds," he said. or welfare \jci uv:i *iuuiuuil \vcia cnunicituu — — -- * , ,. ., .. . between $12.000 to 513,000, tho|of his car and it. overturned in]"? ^ th « city council last June water committee chairman, Mau-ithe 1200 block of Belle St. w hen| 26 ; vl) ' b * extelld ed through a rice Fruit, reported.

But the march itself, and the demands of the speakers, won't dent the prejudices built up over installation, lifetimes and generations. Some of eel up" for the prejudiced will resent the Negro even more for asserting himself. What the march will certainly do, if there is no disorder to con fuse the problem, is demonstrate the Negro is fed up waiting for the same treatment white people get and has learned how to demand it through collective effort. He couldn't do any demanding until nine years ago when the Supreme Court declared the principle of segregation itself unconstitutional. The law was against him. All -he could do was chip away through Inw suits. Even so, the prejudiced, with the law now on the side of the Negro, have refused to end the various discriminations until compelled to. The Negro has had to ram them with sit-ins, street demonstrations, picketing. It was in doing so that Negroes came to the realization they were helpless individually but together could hasten what they wanted. This march .in Washington today is simply a kind of dramatic climax to that realization. To even Belleville, the most prejudiced today's spectacle is evidence, if any were needed, that the Negro is deter- lined to get justice. This has unpleasant implications or whiles who don't want to ield: more turmoil and disorder, icrhaps on an even greater scale, ; nonviolent efforts collapse in iolonco, as they have been doing ncreasingly. Kennedy Dill The Kennedy bill was intended o eliminate a number of potential rouble areas. It isn't clear yet vhether Congress will approve. But after today's display of solidarity, at least in what is wanted, Vegroes can be expected to push ?ven harder. It will be an encouragement to them. But while there is solidarity on what is wanted among Negroes, ihere isn't on how or where or when to achieve it. The Negro leadership, although t is unified for today's program, is divided and no doubt will rfr iume its divisions after today. This to some extent will divide Negroes generally on the strategy o use and may cause conflict among them. A solid front, under a central leadership, might be more effec live. But divided and unpredicta ble actions have a certain psy chological value for Negroes, since they will keep their white oppo nents guessing. evening, agreed to introduce the proposed plnn on the council tloor at the next meeting.
