Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard Tues.^July 2, 1968 Pg. 5 'Negroes May Be Going Wrong Way 1 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Civil rights leader Wilfred T. Ussery says Negroes "may find they're going 100 miles-an-hour in the wrong direction." And ways of reversing this trend may be a key item on the agenda of the five-day national convention of the Congress of Racial Equality opening Wednesday, said Ussery, the or- ganiaztion's national chairman. The 39-year-old official from San Francisco said in an interview Monday that more jobs and better educations for Negroes alone will not end racial injustice. "Because 5 per cent of the households control over 80 per cent of the wealth," Ussery said, "we are only destined to be more sophisticated slaves or drones in the American military industrial complex regardless of how much education we get." Negro politicians have not been responsive to the needs of black communities because they were not elected by black people, he added. "It's entirely possible that we could have a black political party responsible to the black community and not a melting pot constituency," Ussery said. 'Will Vote To Stop Filibuster 1 WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Leader Everett M.I Dirksen of Illinois announced he will vote to cut off any filibuster against Senate confirmation of President Johnson's Supreme Court nominations. He also told newsmen he did not think a filibuster would succeed. "I believe there are the votes for cloture," said Dirksen, referring to the two-thirds majority required to put the Senate's debate cut-off rule into effect. Johnson has nominated Associated Justice Abe Fortas to succeed Chief Justice Earl Warren and Homer Thornberry, a U.S. Circuit Court judge, to replace Fortas as an associate justiceof the Supreme Court. Nineteen of the 36 GOP senators have signed a petition pledging to vote against Johnson's nominations. They contend he should leave the filling of Supreme Court vacancies to the next president to be elected in November. Sen. Robert P. Griffin, R- Mich., who started the petition, has said that he is prepared to filibuster against confirmation. Dirksen declared that he would vote for cloture "because I think all the equities are on one side of the picture." "The nominations were made in good faith, in conformity with the Constitution, the men nominated are qualified, and they have been found to be fit by the American Bar Association," he said. Asked if he meant he would vote to confirm Fortas and Thornberry, as well as to shut off a filibuster, Dirksen said "I sure will."

Udall, saying the campaign "put its worst foot forward" during the recent six-week encampment in Washington.
