THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Billy Graham Slated To Appear with Benny By JAMBS BACON A PMovte-TetevMmt Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-Billy Gra ham, who has calmly faced mi lions in person and on television is nervous-he's going to trad jokes with Jack Benny. "And he's not half aa nervou as I am," says Benny, who one had former President Harry Truman as a guest on his CBS-TV show. Benny, who Is Jewish, was or the platform with the evangelis last Sunday night when 134,25* people jammed Los Angeles Col seum for the windup of the Gra ham crusade. Dr. Graham will tape the show Friday for airing Sept. 24. "I have been on all kinds o television programs but usual!, just as a guest being interviewed" says Graham. "I've never been comedian before. "When Jack asked me, I ac cepted because he is such a won derful man, a man of great char acter who has given so much o his time and talent to make thr world forget its troubles. "I told him that I have beon Hirin Acute Issue By JACK LEFLER AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)-With Negro organizations and many federal state and local governmental agencies pressing for a better break for Negro workers, hiring practices and contests for jobs have become an acute issue. As a result of these pressures there have been some questions raised whether a reverse discrimination—against white workers- might develop. An Associated Press survey of some of the nation's major industrial centers showed that more Negroes are being hired for better jobs but It also indicated there la no great rush to provide employment for them on the basis of race. On the other hand, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, who heads President Kennedy's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity, said industry had ex- 'ceeded expectations in providing more and better jobs for nonwhites. Promotion of three Negroes to post office supervisory jobs, although they were lower than 53 white men on the established merit scale, set off a furor in Dallas. Eleven high-ranking white postal workers filed suit against the Post Office Department, claiming they were discriminated against because of their race. A Seattle employment agency operator reported two instances in the last month in which white workers complained they had lost their jobs because they had been replaced with Negroes. Dudley Cameron, deputy area manager of the California Department of Employment in San Francisco, reported an increasing inclination to hire Negroes. "One might say it is discrimination against whites," he sad. In New York City, two members of the City Commission on Human Rights suggested that racial bias in the building trades might be eased by favoring Negroes ovci white applicants for apprenticeship. About 70 St. Louis area firms have made efforts since the first of this year to hire Negroes for the first time on jobs other than menial capacity. Negro leaders and employment experts said that there have been no complaints of discrimination in reverse. The Michigan Fair Employment Practices Commission pointed out that employment quotas based on race would be against state law. It said it had processed a few reverse discrimination complaints several months ago. Five big Chicago downtown banks invited the Chicago Urban League to help them recruit more Negro employes. Edwin C. Perry, executive director of the league, said the jobs range from page girl to management trainee. Archie Williams, chairman of the Boston Labor and Industry Committee o? the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said there has been no rush to employ Negroes but there has been a rush to set the groundwork to get more jobs lor Negroes. A definite increase in requests for Negroes to fill jobs in industry and business was noted by Ernest Cooper, executive director of the Urban League in Cleveland. He said many of the orders are from firms that have tried perhaps one Negro, found that it has worked and are back for more. a fan of his since I was 5 years old—which is hard to do since I'm 44 and he's 39." A sample of the dialogue between Benny and Graham: Benny: "I was so nervous when I called you. But I guess you didn't detect it." Graham: "Yes, I did." Jack: How?" Graham: "After the conversation, you reversed the charges.' Benny: that."

But what puzzled officials most wa* how he managed In his own profession. He listed himself as a painter. Graham: "On a local call?" Graham tells Benny he has always considered him a very fine violinist. This so shakes up Benny that —for the first time in his long radio and television career—he admits that he is over 39. "I'm really 47," quips Jack. To which Graham counters: "Jack, I'd suggest that you come to some of my meetings." PAGE NINETEEN Stt Bernards 9 Parents Told Aims for Year WOOD RIVER — A. W.
