Senate Commerce Committee Friday that voluntary action was not enough to solve the nation's racial problems. McNamara Ol(s Off-Limits Areas 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 desegregate 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 be talked he leaned forward toward the microphone on the desk before him and his words came out softly, distinctly. The committee and the small ceilinged hearing room w e r e hushed by the drama and the eloquence of his statement.

His temper still rising, he said, "If .it's necessary we'll go into executive session and talk about it. " Thurmond was furious.

  • Text: TH~ GUAR D I A N Monday July 29 1963 9 R ights of the Negro -by Southerner Senator says: ' I am humbled' From ALISTAIR COOKE New York, July 28 It begins to appear that when everyone has had his say befor e the Senate Commerce Committee, which tomorrow begins its third week of hearings on the President's Civil Rights Bill, the complete transcript of the testimony will constitute a classic State paper covering t he 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 t hrough which the a dministration hopes to drive a Federal law is that section of t he Constitution C h . whic h g rves to ongress t e power " to regulate comme rce . .. among t he several Sta tes ." hopes to The Adml·ni·s"-ati·on •~ make it a Federal offe nce to refuse to serve or to seat or to accommodate anyone who enters a store, a restau rant, a theatre, or an hotel th at gets its fo od, its furnish ings, or any other service through inter-State commerce. Hence the last-ditch resistance of most of the Southern witnesses on the grounds that such a law would abolish or unconstitutionally restrict the right to private property. Since the heari ngs started, the committee has heard from such witnesses as the Rev. Martin Luther Kin~, Attorney-General Robert Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk. the indignant ~vernor Wallace of Alabama (" Is not the real purpose to disarm this country as the Communists have planned?") , and the learned Senator Sam Ervine, of North Carolina, the famous constitutional lawyer who call s the Civil Rights Bill " as drastic and indefensible a proposal as has ever been submitted to this Congress." ost remarkable accepted the Supreme Court's decisions as inevitable and as the law of our land .. . . "It has been a long, exhausting, and often discouraging process, and the end is far from beini in sight. . . Step by step, sometimes under court order, sometimes volu ntarily, sometimes adroitly, and many times clumsily, we have tried to find a solution to each specific problem through an agreement between the affected while ownership and the Negro leadership. ' 'Fake action ' " Gentlemen, If I had your problem, armed with the local e perlence I have had, I would pass a public accommodation bill. " Now is the time for legislative action. We cannot dodge the issue. We cannot look back over our shoulders or tum the clock back to the 1860s. We must take action now to assure a greater future for our citizens and our country. " A hundred years ago the abolition of slavery won the US the acclaim of the whole world when it made every American free in theorv. Now, the elimina• tion of segregation, which Is slavery's stepchild, is a challenge to all of us to make every American free in fact . .. and again to establish our nation as a true champion of the free world." When he had done, Senator Thurmond of South Carolina, the old Dixiecrat, leaped in, challengthe Mayar to deny that the ru ings of the Supreme Court. if incorporated in the bill, would mean " compulsion." The Mayor replied : " It would con\pel the same rights to be given the Negro citizen as the white citi7.en. Yes, that's compulsion. Any Federal law exercises some compulsion ." A Democrat of Michigan j umped in to ask the Mayor if he didn't think Atlanta's desegregation programme was " Communist inspired," a favourite point of Senator Thurmond. "Senator," said the Mayor, " there are no more Communists in Atlanta than there are on the moon." At the end, the chairman. Senatol' John Pastore, Democrat ot Rhodl' Island satd he apprec1atecl that 1t had b en {I r for a r Allen to a at he had al than 1t wo b n for mayors of rn ct !es. " Mr Ma or ' nator Past e, " I am humb in inf Of all the witne6ses so far, owever, the most remarkable, and the most characteristic of e South's agonising second ughts, was the last one to appear this weekend : Mr Ivan !Allen, jun., the nationally known Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia, which has, in the last year or two, slowly at\d with ml.Wh dissension, managed to desegregate its parks and golf course1;, its restaurants, , lunch counters, theatres, public schools, and hotels. Mr Allen's testimony needs no gloss. It was a long statement delivered without bombast, and without much self-esteem either. ' Here are some of the most typical passages, delivered in a soft, almost apologellic Southern accent: " It is tru h t At111nla has achiev d success m cllmlnatin& discrimination in areas where so.qie other cities have failed, but we do n t boast o{ our success ... we have achieved It only becau!le we looked acts In the face and your pres �

M. D. BRACKETT Atlanta 18, Georgia July 30, 1963 S~ e ri n t e nde nt Offl ce Manag er T e l. TRinity 3-342 1 Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. Mayor's Office City Hall Dear Mr. Mayor: This is a fan letter. 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 admi t that when I first learned that you were the next elected Mayor, my first feeling was relief that it wasnt going to be Lester Maddox. I was deathly afraid h e 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, ,m ~Lc~~ Mildred Callahan "ATLAN TA GRO WS WHERE WATER GOES" �

I just returned from a trip to Europe and my secretary had your statement on my desk, Although I feel that there must be many changes in the public accommodations law as it is presently written in order to preserve our democratic rights and ideals, I feel that your statement generally was a courageous and just one and I want to compliment you upon having made it for the people of our City.
