Mrs. McCarthy urges women
to be more active in politics
by Jan Parks
Senior Staff Writer
Mrs. Eugene McCarthy add
ed a feminine ingredient to
the campaign stew Wednes
day as she solicited women s
votes for her husband in the
May 14 Democratic Presiden
tial primary.
Speaking at an afternoon
luncheon, Mrs. McCarthy urg
ed the audience of house
wives, career women, brides
and grandmothers to take a
more active part in the coun
try's politics.
"If we (women) don't get
into the political machinery
our choice will be two men
chosen by people who we
wouldn't let choose anything
else for us," she quipped.
Mrs. McCarthy pointed out
that women's rights to total
involvement in politics is com
paratively new in the realm
of history.
"There has been an ebb and
flow of women's political in
volvement since we got the
vote," she said.
Since the women's suffrage
amendment backroom and
corridor campaigning has
been replaced by luncheons
and teas, Mrs. McCarthy no
ted. The vote for women actual
ly came from the West, she
said, because pioneer women
worked shoulder to shoulder
with their men creating a
feeling of equality between
me sexes.
Women are now in politics
in a practical level, Mrs. Mc
Carthy explained, "but we
should replace our words with
"We are here because we
are concerned about the gen
eration ahead of us," she said.
"In their response to the Mc
Carthy campaign we have
found the secret of the direc
tion this campaign should be
taking, she said.
Mrs. McCarthy, the mother
of four children and a Phi
Beta Kappa member, said
that the McCarthy campaign
is not a personal campaign.
"It is crucial to many peo
ple," she said, as she cited
several college students who
have managed a leave of ab
sence from their classes to
campaign for the Minnesota
McCarthy's decision to en
ter the presidential race in
November was a lonely step,
she said.
"But the rains came and
mushrooms came up all
over," Mrs. McCarthy said,
noting increased National sup
port for her husband.
A new constituency really
exists, she said. "Many Re
publicans are changing their
registration to cast a vote of
confidence for McCarthy."
Mrs. McCarthy said that
her husband entered the race
for President because of his
objection to the war in Viet
nam. The Senator feels that
the war is destroying the eco
nomy of the U.S. and is dis
tracting America from obli
gations at home and abroad,
she said.
Citing her husband's Con
gressional record as his Pres
idential qualifications, Mrs.
McCarthy noted that her hus
band, as chairman, oft he

Problems, gave Congress the
first comprehensive picture of
distressed areas, unemploy
ment and racial discrimina
tion in employment.

held Tuesday afternoon.
Mortar Boards select Slote
In an early afternoon cere
mony Tuesday, Mortar Board
tapped Miss Bernice Slote,
professor of English, as an
honorary member.
"I've always considered
Mortar Board a very real
honor," Miss Slote said. "It
means a real link with stu
dents and student activities,"
she added.
Miss Slote will be escorted
to Ivy Day Saturday, May 4,
and will attend the banquet
and initiation that evening.

Houses should organize
He said houses should or

base 'sneaks' on a definite

Scholarship, Scott com
mented, should be geared to
the individual's level and not
to the abilities of a 4.5 stu

a cooperative effort with the
objective of initiating all of

"I think you have an obli

Mr. Galvn:
does business have to be pressured into hiring minorities
1 -A
v 1
Dear Mr. Galvrn, Dear Mr. Kimball:
Recently trie President's Riot Commisslor requested private
business to provide one million more jobs for the minority and
underprivileged since one of the most common complaints that
arises from the ghetto is the lack of available employment. The
story is familiar: inability to get a job begets a "blemished
record" and those with blemished records have even less of a
chance of being hired. Finally, the companies that have been most
intransigent are picketted and harassed by protest groups until
they change their hiring policies. But da businesses really have
to be pressured by protests and boycotts to hire minority groups?
What coordinated efforts are businessmen making to influence
top management to adopt a more liberal policy toward hiring?
Newsweek recently ran an article on the Negro businessman and
the vicious circle of low income customers, inability to secure
loans, and the discriminatory competition from white businessmen
that he often runs into. I am well aware that discrimination is
not indigenous to the business world but how can white
businessmen act to help the Negro businessman out?
Although business might suffer slightly at first, surely in the
long run everyone would benefit Business has the chance of a
lifetime to show that the profit motive does not dominate its
basic social concern. The action must, however, come from
within before other groups try to take the credit
Is business capable of meeting this challenge?

campus viewpoints on business, and equally concerned that
businessmen often have misimpressions of today's college
students, Robert W. Galvin, Motorola Chairman, is
participating in a continuing dialogue with students at four
leading universities. The students, whose letters to Mr. Galvin
are being published in campus papers together with his
replies, are: Barbara Caulfield, Northwestern University;
Ralph Kimball, Stanford University; Paul George Sitlenfeld,
Princeton University; and Fred Sayre, University of Arizona.
Additional topics are. being aired over college radio stations.
Mr. Galvin also has visited campuses to participate in
discussions aimed at furthering mutual respect and
understanding. The photograph shows Mr. Galvin exchanging
views with members of the Yale Management Association,
I am in agreement with your feelings that discriminatory
employment practices must be eliminated quickly. Big steps
have recently been taken in this direction, and further immediate
steps are planned. However, it would be naive to suggest
that all is being done that could be done.
In hiring personnel, a corporation endeavors to get the
best-qualified men available at the wages it can pay. Naturally,
inexperienced men, and those with no experience and no work
record, frequently are by-passed in favor of men more likely
to be of value to the company . . . regardless of whether or not
the applicants are members of a minority. Inexperienced men in
certain jobs could be potential safety hazards to themselves
and others, and could lower the reliability of
critical components and products.
This is not to say that discriminatory practices do not exist
they do. But business seems now to be accepting its part of the
responsibility that we all share to eliminate
discrimination pf all kinds.
The Business Council, composed of over 100 leading corporation
executives, is active in projects to help alleviate unemployment
among minorities. Lockheed trains and employs people whose
lack of education and experience hinders their job-finding
efforts. General Telephone in Florida has long operated a
program of free courses for Cuban immigrants and for Negroes
unable to pass normal hiring tests. Some 85 pass after taking
General Telephone's course and are then hired.
The New Detroit Committee is a good example of coordinated
efforts by businessmen to make unemployed persons into
effective wage earners. The committee, consisting of Detroit
business executives, has obtained employment for over 60,000
unskilled workers, many previously considered "unempIoyable"s
Chicago's business-sponsored Jobs Now project finds jobs for
youngsters unable to pass normal hiring tests
many of them school dropouts.
A tremendous pool of untapped talent exists in the Negro
community, and progressive companies realize the advantages t
themselves of providing career openings for these potentially
valuable men and women. As more Negroes develop in
education, skills, and ability, they will win still
greater employment opportunities.
Many Negro businessmen are developing a larger share of the
market place by offering comparable goods and services at
competitive prices. Their relationships with the busir ess
community reflect only this ability to meet customers needs.
In developing an enterprise, the same financial assistance is
available to responsible Negro businessmen as
to anyone else in business.
I have obtained information from loan officers of three Chicago
banks and two major loan companies, which offers assurance
that they never refuse loans to anyone who can demonstrate
responsibility and capability to maintain a normal payment
schedule. This makes good business sense. .
Most responsible business leaders today are very concerned about
inequalities that have existed for years in such areas as
employment, housing, education, and other discrimixiations.
And they are working to right past wrongs.'
