Record On .
Rights Bad
Washington—Senator Estes Ke
fauver, the Democrat Candidate |
for Vice President, has a record
on civil rights as bad as that of
Senator James O. Eastland, (Demo
crat, Miss.), Val J. Washington,
Director ol Minorities for the Re
publican National Commit tie,
charged today.
According to Mr. Washington,
Kefauver has been consistently a
gainst civil rights ever since he
entered the Congress.
As proof, Mr. Washington calls
attention to a speech made in the
House by Senator Kefauver while
he was a member of the House of
Representatives and a candidate
for the United States Senate, on
July 29, 1948.
Opposes Civil Rights
In this speech Senator Kefau
ver said: “I have always opposed,
and will continue to vigorously
oppose, the FEPC, the anti-lynch,
and any non-segregation provs
"ii senator neiauver nas ever
changed his attitude on such
measures,” Mr. Washington said,
“there is no record of It because
he has voted for segregation and
the filibuster and against anti
lynching at every opportunity."
Senator Kcfauver’s speech to
which Mr. Washington referred
follows and is to be found in the
Congressional Record of July 29,
1948, page 9549:
"MR. KEFAUVER. Mr. Speak
er, the civil-rights issue was toned
down by President Truman in his
message to Congress on July 27...
1 am glad that he.. .indicated
that he was not anxious for the
civil-rights issue to be brought up
In this special session of Congress.
“I hope very much that the
civil-rights issue will not be push
ed at this Congress, for 'being
brought up would only add to the
fire of prejudice and the disunity
in our nation.....
"Most of the matters embraced
In the President's civil-rights pro
gram cannot be dealt with by legis
lation. I have always opposed,
and will continue to vigorously op
pose, the FEPC, the anti-lynch bill,
and any non-segregation provis
“The FEP£ is, in my opinion, a
dangerous step toward regimenta
tion. 'RTs of doubtful constitu
tionality and it certainly violates
the rights of the employers of our
Nation. It simply would not
, work especially in the South. Any
effort to put such a law in opera
tion would cause widespread diffi
culty which would be very detri
mental to the Nation.
“Thff" anti-lynch bill has been
before the Judiciary Committee, of
which I am a member, and 1 have
always opposed it
“There is no real demand for
anti-segregation laws in the
South. The Negroes of the South
are not interested in this kind of
legislation. (What Negroes does
he speak for, in Heaven’s name!—
Editor.) They want schools, better
economic opportunity, and houses.
I hope their lot in these respects
can be improved. It would not bo
in the interest of their own wel
fare to fan the fires of passion and
disunity by espousal of federal
non-segregation laws.”
That’s what the man now aspir
ing to the Vice Presidency—"one
heartbeat from the Presidency it
self”—said on the floor of Con
gress. And his voting record,
when it did not show his absence,
which is often, underscores his
own admission that he does not
believe in non-segregation laws!
nil voring necora
Mr. Washington charged that
Senator Kefauver voted as follow!
in the House:
May 4, 1948—For a resolution
giving the consent of Congress to
a compact on regional education
entered into between the Southern
States at Tallahassee, February 8,
1948, to enable them jointly to
maintain racial segregation in
public education.
February 21, 1948—Against the
Powell Amendment to the school
lunch bill, providing that no funds
appropriated for the school-lunch
program shall be paid or disbursed
to any State practicing racial dis
crimination in carrying out the
May 24, 1943—Voted against mo
tion to discharge the House Rules
Committee from further consider
ation of the anti-poll tax bill.
January 8, 1940—Against rcs
lution to discharge the House
Rules Committee from further
consideration of anti-poll tax bill.
January 10, 1940—Against anti
lynching bill.
In The Senate
Mr. Washington also charged
tljat Senator Kefauver had voted
in the Senate:
Twice in 1950 against ending
a filibuster against motions to take
up the FEPC bill.
Voted in 1949 against amend
ment to housing bill to prohibit
discrimination or segregation in
public housing.
Voted against amendment to
1949 housing bill to prohibit dis
crimination in public housing.
Voted against Lodge amendment
to Federal aid to education bill
to require states receiving funds
to abolish school segregation.
Voted to table the amendment
to the draft bill outlawing vio
lence against servicement.
For the amendment offered by
Senator Richard B. Russell.
The Office of Education, U. S.
Department of Health, Education,
and Welfare, today announced
approval of the first two contracts
for cooperative educational re
search in its history .
The contracts, with Indiana
University and with Vanderbilt
University, will be financed from
a recent aptvopriation of
$1,020,000 for research by col

are under active consideration.
Marion B. Folsom, Secretary of
Health, Education, and Welfare,
said he was pleased that the Office
of Education is starting the new
program so quickly. “Research

QooduuU feuildUuf GnuAjcule.
Booker T. Washington in his historically famous Atlanta Exposition Address delivered
ii\ Atlanta, Georgia a little more than 61 years ago, called the attention of the nation to
the fact that “There is no defense or security for any of us except in the highest intelligence
and development of all.” Our land in that day was faced by group problems similar in
nature to those that are affecting us today as an outgrowth of the Supreme Court’s Decision
of May 17, 1954. It is because of these problems that this the first in a series of messages
from the Booker T. Washington Centennial Commission, is being issued.
This Commission was brought into existence in April to pay tribute to the one-hundreth
anniversary of the birth of Booker T. Washington (April 5, 1956), through a year long
program designed to focus the attention of the nation upon the present day value of the
sane fundamental teachings of this great American.
Since Booker T. Washington was an Apostle of Goodwill and since portions of our
land today are being torn asunder by mistrust, fear, and hate among Americans of different
racial strains, the Booker T. Washington Centennial Commission humbly invites all Ameri
cans to join its “Goodwill Building Crusade.”
Ours is a land of many races and creeds. We have different origins, cultures, and
backgrounds—but we are Americans all! Ours is a nation of Washington and Jefferson,
Lincoln and Lee, and millions of ordinary men and women who toiled and sweated, sacri
ficed and died to build their wonderful heritage. It was worth their lives to build it—
surely it is worth ours to preserve its hopes and ideals by working together in peace and
* Remember France’s Maginot Line—built so strong of steel and stone that Frenchmen
felt secure behind it—but France fell. Not so much because of a lack of strength in its great
wall but mainly because of the spirit of its people. And remember too, Divine teachings

creed—“A house divided against itself shall not stand.”
Hate and mistrust in your community might be wiped out if group
representatives meet, discuss, and work together to find answers for
the problems that are causing racial sores to fester.
Communities that pull together unite our nation. We invite you
to help to make yours such a community.

The Booker T. Washington
Centennial Commission came in
to existence in April of this year
to pay tribute to the One Hun
dredth Anniversary of the birth
of ooker TB. Washington who was
bom in Franklin County, Virgin
ia, April 9, 1896. A year-long
program has been arranged to
focus the attention of the nation
upon the present day value of the
iundamental teachings of this
*gneat American. _|
Mr” Phillips recalled that it was

in an address at the Cotton States
Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia,
that Booker T. Washington said,
“There is no defense or security
for any of us except in the highest
intelligence and development of
all”. This admonition delivered
before a critical audience in 1895, i
applies with equal force today.
Certainly the need for unity is
just as strong as ever.
Urging communities to pull to- i
gether for the solution of race |
problems, Mr. Phillips stated that
"Hate and mistrust may be
wiped out if representatives of
various groups will meet, discuss
and work together to find an
swers to the problems that are
causing racial sores to fester.”

Disney, luckily, had no trouble
in finding exact duplicates to j

Retirement has become enough
a part of the American pattern of
life to give the authorities a good
deal of experience tO'be authorita
tive about. One thing they seem
to agree on is that one retiring
should not merely stop doing
what he has been doing. He
should start doing something else.
Doing what? That depends on
the individual. If he, conscious
ly or intuitively, will start doing
something that fills some lack in j
his experience thus far, he is
likely to find satisfaction—pro-1

Some years ago a man who had
gained some reputation and
wealth as a retail jeweler decided
to retire at 65 and to undertake
the study and practice of law.
Why? He didn’t say publicly.
But we have an idea his business
—success—which was not incon
siderable—had never sufficient
ly challenged the intellectual
capabilities he felt to be within
him. He did as he planned, and
made another modest success—
a professional one.
A short time ago an engineer
with a respected record in his
profession behind him decided to
retire, enter a theological school,
and become a minister of the
gospel. Then, a modestly comfor
table living assured through the
annuity he had built up, he pro
poses to ask his church to place
him with the poorest congrega
tion within its fold. Why has he
chosen thus? Perhaps because
the technical and abstract charac
ter of his particular work has not
fulfilled his yearning for warm,
helpful association with his fel
low men.
An .appealing ambition that
ought to succeed because of its
very selflessness—provided. Pro

arms himself for the peculiarly
difficult test to which he will be
putting himself and his future
congregation—the test of giving
gracefully and receiving grate
fully where no tangible, commen
surate quid pro quo enters in. If
he is prepared to give without
dependence upon outward show
of gratitude, his rewards should
be great indeed.

Get the Vote Out With
"Campaign Button” Cakes and Coffee
Coffee cake and conversation add up to a delightful afternoon
or evening. With the conversation turning to politics these days,
key your food service to that theme and bring on a platter of
colorfully frosted cupcakes bearing the letters, "vote” or other
political note. The food couldn’t be simpler with cupcakes from
the bakery with your own frosting, possibly in delicately tinted
red and blue with a band of white.
Make your coffee service the focal point of the party and dress
up the customary service with a bowl of whipped cream topped
with a sprinkling of grated orange or lemon rind. A dusting of
cinnamon or nutmeg or of a mixture of instant coffee, cocoa and
cinnamon over the whipped cream adds a festive touch. With
the economy of instant coffee you can serve this easily prepared
coffee with a lavish hand. You will find an even greater economy
available with a special introductory offer on the large, 6-ounce
jars of such a famous coffee as Instant Chase & Sanborn now at
your dealers. Glamorize your coffee by trying some of these
unique ways to serve it.
An Italian favorite. Make instant coffee extra strong. Serve,
with equal proportions of hot milk. Jop with whipped cream,
sprinkled with instant coffee and cinnamon.
Make hot cocoa using milk. Serve equal parts of cocoa with
hot extra strong coffee. Pour into cups. Top with whipped cream,
grated orange peel and cocoa powder.
Drop a rum-flavored chocolate mint in the bottom of a cup.
Pour hot black coffee over the cyndy. Stir. |

Fine Wood TV Sets Blend With Furniture
The most-looked-at piece of
furniture in your room, your TV
set, no longer need be a jarring
note in the decor of your home.
In response to homemakers’ de
mands, the newest television sets,
are being offered in beautiful
furniture woods and all the favo
rite furniture styles.
Whether you have traditional
or modem furniture it’s easy to
find a fine hardwood TV set to
match or blend with your furnish
ings. There’s every size from
table models to combinations in
these handsome real wood cabi
nets, and every style, including
French and Italian Provincial,
18th Century, Early American
and a wide variety of modem,
contemporary and transitional
Many of these new furniture
styled TV sets have doors or tam
bour fronts so they look like
handsome chests or commodes
when closed. Typical is this three
s’eaker UCA “Brantley" model
offered in natural-finished gen
uine mahogany, walnut or birch
in a simple stylo that goes with
almost any type of furniture.
Hi-fi rodio-pho’ ograph units
are also now offered in attractive
“decorator” cabinets, alone or
combined with TV. Some units
look like (nodular cabinets
stucked on low contemporary
benches, and the handsome new
wood table TV and hi-fi sets lend
themselves both to stacking on
cabinets or benches, or use with
matching legs or swivel-table
stands. You’ll even find fine hard
wood cabinets for scparat<^com
ponent parts in various end-table,
chest and corner cabinet styles.
You can choose the same wood
or one that contrasts with your
furniture, for nil genuine woods
mix readily with each other.
Because so many TV sets havo
been offered in imitation woods
and wood grains that lack this
natural ability to mix with fine
fumishing3, a number of leading
manufacturers are now using a
genuine hardwoods seal to iden
tify their quality real woods. This
seal is your best guide to the
versatility, lasting natural beau
ty and better acoustics of a gen
uine hardwood cabinet.
