He urged Congress to enact a federal law outlawing racial discrimination in places of public accommodation. Not to do so, he said, would mean turning back the clock and reversing the uneasy progress that has been made recently by men of good will. “Even now, the knowledge that this bill might not pass has caused some business men who agreed to desegre- gate their businesses to question whether they made the right move,” he said. The graying mayor pleade dwith the Congress to, “give us some’ direction, give us some definition.” As he talked he leaned forward toward the micro- phone on the desk before him and his words came out softly, distinctly. The committee and the small ceilinged hearing reom were hushed by the drama and the eloquence of his statement. “As the mayor of the south- east's largest city, I can say to you out of first-hand experi- ence and first-hand knowledge that nowhere does the problem of eliminating discrimination be- tween the races strike so closely home as it does to the local elected public official. He is the man who cannot pass the buck.” “From this viewpoint,’ he taid, “I speak of the problem ak having been brought into sliarp focus by decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States and then generally ig- lot Foremost Newspaper of The Carolinas SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1963 28 Pages ot ~ \ > TEST-BAN People Y bsr ry e — Stories and pictures of fa- ] SN ~\ 4 k | | mous personalities.

New York, July 28 It begins to appear that when everyone has had his say before the Senate Commerce Committee, which tomorrow begins its third week of hearings on the Presi- dent’s Civil Rights Bill, the complete transcript of the testimony will constitute a classic State paper covering the spectrum of American opinion in mid-century on the status of the Negro in American life. The task of weighing the pros and cons fell to the Commerce Committee because the legal loophole through which the administration hopes to drive a Federal law is that section of the Constitution which gives to Congress the Bower “to regulate commerce . among the several States.” ‘The Administration hopes to make it a Federal offence to refuse to,serve or to seat or to accommodate anyone who enters a store, a restaurant, a theatre, or an hotel that gets its food, its furnishings, or any other service through inter-State commerce. | Hence the last-ditch resistance of ee of the Southern witnesses the grounds that such a law would abolish or unconstitu- tionally restrict the right to Since the hearings started, the committee has heard from such witnesses as the Rev. Martin Luther King, Attorney-General Robert. Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, the in nt Governor Wallace of Alabama (“Is not the real pur e to ! private property. munists have planned ?

  • Text: VOICE OF EXPERIENCE Mayor Allen Explains Why He Spoke On Civil Rights Bill, “We cannot dodge this is- sue... We must take action now to assure a greater fu- ture for our citizens and our country.”—Mayor Ivan Allen, before the U.S. Senate Com- _mittee on Commerce. NOT EVEN considering its con- siderable political implica- tions, Mayor Ivan Allen's en- dorsement of ‘ the Kennedy public accom- modations leg- islation was one of those sort of sur- prise news stories of the highest signifi- cance. I was in trigued with the question of why he did it. In the past, he has not sounded off to any great public extent on the essentials of civil rights, sticking instead to specifics of local situations. He was not one of those on either side with stock reactions easily predicta- ble. His credentials in the blue- chip community of business (whose freedoms are supposed to be so threatened by the legis- lation) are well known. INFLUENCE And his stand flew in the face of a unanimity of virtually all the rest of the state's political leadership against’ the legisla- tion. (The importance of all these factors on the influence of his stand in the climate of public By PAT WATTERS opinion shouldn’t be overlooked. As a leadership and prestige influence, they say to people puzzled and troubled over the measure that it is possible to be for the historical impera- tives and morality involved with- out being hounded as a hope- less idealist or Communist or something.) He didn’t have to speak out. His stand was bound not to sit well with some. I finally went over and asked him why he did it. In effect, he said he did be- eause he was qualified to. No other political officials in America, he pointed out, have had to face full-blast the prac- tical job of the civil rights revolution as have city officials like himself. (And not all city officials either, he said—which is true over most of Georgia.) _ He is convinced from such ex- perience, he said, that it is high time, nine years after the school ruling, that the federal government help out with the problems created by the man- dates of the federal courts, This, he said, is the “biggest social problem in my lifetime,” and Congress needs to act as it fi- nally had to in comparable social upheavals of the past. He listed as comparable child labor, women’s suffrage and the labor struggle. | “The country’s in the biggest mess it's ever been in, and Con- gress has not taken a single step to help clarify things .. . Congress can’t expect local gov- ernments to handle as difficult a problem as this . . . with no help, no definitions, no support. It’s been damn unfair.” He cited ten recent desegrega- tion steps Atlanta has made as an. example., (These were listed in his statement to the commit- tee, along with, incidentally, an assessment of our achievements and sstill-serious shortcomings better than any I've ever seen, \a portrayal of Atlanta to the nation and world more honor- able and in the real sénse more favorable than any in some years. ) IN MIDDLE In most of those ten steps, Mayor Allen pointed out, he was caught in the middle—working for “logical agreements.” His point was that so much of it shouldn’t be on a mayor and city officials, and that often to the hurt of a city and the na- tion, officials duck out of such responsibility. ‘You never please many with any decision” in the situation, he said. His decision to speak, then, and what he said came out of the pragmatic knowledge of first- hand experience such as few in America have of a situation about which many have opin- ions. As such, what he said was significant. His decision to say it may be even more important at this crucial midpoint in his first political office—for what it says of his character and his concept of his responsibility. Out of such decisions come important leaders,

Gov. Donald Russell of South Carolina denounced the adminis- tration-backed measure as ‘‘co- ercive legislation’ which he said “will breed resistance and perhaps violence.” PROBLEM FOR ALL Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. of At Janta said federal legislation would help advance voluntary desegration. He said racial dis- crimination is an all-American problem requiring an all-Ameri- can solution, and if Congress does not pass the bill it would “amount to an indorsement of private business setting up an entirely new status of discrimi- nation throughout the nation.” The two southern officials tes- tified at a hearing of the Senate Commerce Committee which was enlivened by a row between act- ing chairman Pastore (Dem.), Rhode Island and Senator Thur- mond (Dem.), South Carolina. LOADED QUESTIONS Senator Pastore accused Sen- restaurants and other public ac- ator Fhurmond of asking Mr. Allen “Joaded” and “‘when-did- you-stop-beating-your-wife”’ type of questions and declared he was not going to stand for intimida- tion and embarrassment of the witness, Senator Thurmond, an oppo- nent of the civil rights bill, said he resented the characterization and was not going to have a Irving Dillard Gels Princeton U.

I have just read the newspaper account of your speech to the Senate Committee, and I just have to write and tell you how proud I was and am that you are our Mayor. That speech was one of the greatest appeals to reason that I have ever read. I am sure that many of Atlanta's citizens feel the same way. Right now we need all the forsight and reason we can get to deal with things as they are, so we are lucky to have you in the Mayor's office. I admit that when I first learned that you were the next elected Mayor, my first feeling was relief that it wasn"t going to be Lester Maddox. I was deathly afraid he was going to be elected, and having known him and his views for many years, I saw citizens of Atlanta shooting at each other in the streets. Since you have been our Mayor I have been more and more impressed with what I can only call your plain good sense. You have more courage than I have. I have hated segregation all my life, but have said nothing that would call down criticism and unpleasantness on myself. I know this is moral cowardice, and confess it, but I just like to get along with people. I saw you on television, and hearing you in the Committee room and knowing the whole country was hearing you, I swelled with pride fit to burst. That row between Senator Pastore and Senator Thurmond tickled me to death. I am just a city Clerk-Typist at the Water Works, but I wanted you to know that I am one white citizen that feels as you do, I'm proud of you Mr, Mayor. I mean it, Sincerely and respectfully, PBL al.

I heartily agree with yous However, I deplore the need for the Civil Rights Law, but when many still so completely cherish the past, I guess the p esent has to be spelled out. One would think that history wuld be enough: le Pe "Taxation without representation is tyranny." By James Otis The Boston Tea Party. The American Revolution. The words of Patrick Henry, "I am an American Citizen not a Virginian." The Constitution. The Civil War. The Emancipation Proclamation. The words of Robert E. Lee, "Madam, recollect that we form one country now. Abandon all local animosities and make your sons Americans." The l;th Amendment. 10. The Supreme Court ruling. But, as you say, we must spell it out by law, and The fact that the law is far more stringent than volunteer action wuld have dictated is just too bad.
