NAACP COUNSEL DECLARES # CIVIL RIGHTS REPORT IS BASIS FOR ACTION NOW New York—Pledging “fullest sup port” of the recommendations of the President’s Committee on Civil Rights, Thurgood Marshall, chief counsel for the NAACP, called for all groups in terested in first-class citizenship for all Americans to redouble their efforts to bring the Committee’s proposals in to reality. Marshall said the NAACP was “naturally gratified” by the report of the Committee since the suggestion that such a committee be appointed was made to President Truman at a conference in the White House Sep tember 19, 1946, by a committee of citizens assembled by the NAACP following the Columbia, Tenn., dis turbance and the Monroe, Ga., lynch ings of last year. The Marshall state ment: '“The Report of the President’s Committee on Civil Rights will go down in history as one of the most important documents yet produced in this field. The erport is not only a carefully documented indictment of our present system of dual citizenship in this country, but it creates for itself an unique position in governmental reports by pointing out not only a gen eral solution to the problem, but de- i tailed steps to be taken to bring about this end. When it is fully realized that this is an official report by a constitu tional commission with all of the au thority of such a commission, its ef fectiveness can be fully realized. The carefully documented mate rials of the conditions in the country today are not new to minority groups and indeed they have been made known to many Americans. However, these conditions have never been brought home to all Americans in such a clear-cut fashion as in this report which has been given the fullest pub licity through all media. The problem of the Negro and other minority groups is now before the public in a manner never equaled before. “The program of action combines the major portions of the programs of action of all groups fighting for full citizenship rights for all Americans. It forms a common ground upon which all such groups can work. It pre sents a minimum program for legisla tive and executive departments of the United States and the several states. It prsents a prograjn around which all forces can unite in bringing forth a new Bill of Rights, a new Magno Charta, or a new type of phrase for a body of laws, regulations, and execu tive enforcement to make the Declara tion of Independence and our Con-' stitution mean what they say. “The report gives the program of many so-called ‘liberals’ and calls for action now. So that now there is no longer any reasonable pretext *for fol lowing the traditional stumbling block embodied in the phrase, ‘the time is not ripe.’ There is no longer any need for tolerating or permitting seg regation any place in the United States. The NAACP will support this report to the fullest as will all of its branches and members. It is necessary that all Negroes and others interested in full citizenship for all American 'citizens band together and redouble their efforts to bring about the enact ment of the legislative program pro posed as well as require the executive action proposed. “The full significance of the need for the enactment of the program of the President’s Committee is obvious when we realize that this carefully documented report of admittedly ‘un American activities’ within our coun try and the carefully-worked-out pro gram were prepared in a period of eleven months. This should be com pared with the demonstratio nof the interest of the United States Congress in ‘un-American activities’ by its Com mittee on Un-American Activities, ( which has been operating for years and years and has reached the point I of confining all of its time to an al leged investigation of the beliefs of some Americans and some writers and directors in Hollywood. “If the President’s Committee’s re port is to mean anything, there must be the fullest cooperation of all Ameri cans to reform congressional proce jdure in order to require Congress to I take action against the ‘un-American i activities’ in the Report of the Presi i dent’s Committee instead of wasting its time and efforts in seeking to im pose ‘thought-control’ on American citizens.” The Watchmen will r< b e on Fri day, November 7, 1947. e Church at 8 p. m. NAACP HAILS PRES. TRUMAN FOR CIVIL RIGHTS REPORT New York—Expressing “profound admiration” for the report of the President’s Committee on Civil Rights, calling it “beyond question the most forthright governmental pronounce ment” on civil rights ever drafted, Walter White, NAACP secretary, sent the following telegram to President Truman: “May I on behalf of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People express to you our profound admiration for the report of the President’s Committee on Civil Rights. It is beyond all question the most forthright governmental pro nouncement of a practical program for assurance of civil rights not only to minorities but to all Americans which has yet been drafted. The Committee has charted a course for the executive and legislative branches of govern-' ment, both national and state, for the people which if followed will make | real our principles of human freedom.” RACE RELATION CONFERENCE AT CHICAGO UNIVERSITY, NOVEMBER 14 TO 16 A National Conference on Local Race Relations and Minority Group Problems will bring together repre sentatives of local, state and national, organizations for three days on the University of Chicago campus at In-1 teniational House, November 14, 15 and 16.

BENSON 1 President of Harding College Searcy. Arkansas AMONG ALL THE postwar na- 1 lions, no countries have so quick ly restored their productivity/ without damage to standards of Eying as have Canada and the nited' States. These two coun tries have restored productivity to the 1940-41 level, and in many Industries have surpassed this level. It is no coincidence that a fecent New York Timet 22-nation survey showed that except in Canada and the United States, the trend is toward government management of industry. Countries that are exchanging their freedoms for government controls are not making good postwar records. In general, they are the countries that are crying loudest for help from outside. Those nations which desire to turn everything over to the gov ernment for complete control and management are the very countries that are slipping back ward. Still, the trend is toward government management of in dustry. Public SHALL AMERICA ul Decides timately follow this trend? In my opinion, the public in this country has not yet decided that issue. There are some voices crying loudly for i government management. Even , sur Attorney General points his finger at American industry and I accuses it of being responsible for high prices. Political maneu vers may please critical people and get votes, but in making in dustry unpopular the way is' paved for replacing our free en terprise system. As an educator, I favor that system which will provide the highest standards of living for the masses of the American peo ple. If gbvernment management of our industries would provide higher wages, more productivity and greater purchasing power foi each dollar spent, then certainlj I would be in favor of it. Actual ly, our system of private enter prise has put America far ahead of other nations that have tried anything else. Act With THERE ARE other Wisdom dividends offered by the American way. We have freedoms. We can work at what we please, where we choose. We can speak our minds, as semble in groups as we care to. These freedoms and other liber ties we did not have under the control of despotic and dictatorial governments in previous centu ries. Why ever, should we want to follow a trend that leads us backward toward new despotism and loss of personal freedoms? The experience of England should make us pause and think seriously. Those freedom-loving people have not found govern ment management an asset. Their coal production has been extreme ly disappointing under govern ment management. Rationing has become more and more severe. Burdens of the people have be come more and more heavy. To day, the very future of England is threatened by strict govern ment regulation and management of industry. '• In this dark hour, Englishmen should study their own history. They will find that whenever their individual freedoms were greatest, it was then their pros perity was the most genuine. If we in America think soberly and act in our best interests, we will act with wisdom to preserve the fundamental patterns of our economy: the right of private ownership of property and the freest possible exercise of private management of our entire econ omy.
