Mr. TALMADGE. Mr. President, the
southwest Georzia eliy of Americus has
become another in a lone and unhappy
line of American communities to be seb
Upon by racial agitation wand violent

The traric vietim of miiitant and ar-
rorant advecates of a philosephy tiat
threatens to destroy the American ideal
that ours is a Nation of laws and not of
men, upon which is based the freedom of
all Americans recardiess of race, creed,
or color, Americus, Ga. has been made
the scence of racial disorder and mob ac-
tion. Already there has oecurred a
brutal and senseless killing of a yaunr
U.S. Marine cniistee who was shot dawn
in cold bleod while standing on a ptrect
corner. ‘Two Nerrocs have been charred
with bis murder.

We pray that violence will end in this
strife-lorn city, (at peace and order will
be returned, sud that wilever dilfer-
enees exist between eitizens will be re-
solved in eceordanee wilh ile processes
of civilized taw, and nat. ncenrdin® to the
law of tie jimele, We pray that there
will be sg more deaths, nnd that tie
food ciuzens of Americus, of both rarees,
will look to their minds and their hearts
and them conrciences for nm solution ta
preblems of tnman relations, aoe that.
there vhoare bent upon pittine neiebbor
arainss neivhber, whe make a profession
out of inciting riots and dissension, will
cense and desint.

Accord: in newspaper aceounis, thee
difienlues in Ameriens arose over voter
Tesistration procedures. I have stated

before, and To repent here today that I
favor the fll and unhindered rinlt to
vote of every quniified American. cili-
ren. and wherever this rinht is being de-

nied there should be corrective action.
The rieht to vote is muarantecd by the
Constitution ond well-protected by stot-
utory law, inehiding the so-called Voting
Rirhts Act which now lies on the Presi-
dent's desk, which is enforecable in every
court in the land, both State and Fed-

Tean find no justification for the wave
of rioting which has swept the country
_over alleged deprivation of constitutional

Mr, TALMADGE. Mr. President, the
entire Nation is shocked and horrified
by the racial rioting in the city of Los
Anteies. In the wake of this holocaust,
in which more than 30 lives have been
lost and wieeh still rages in some parts
of the Los Angeles area, various sid sun-
dry so-called explanations and exes
have been offered by experts in the Gelds
of Jaw enforcement, soctolory, psyehol-
ory, psychiatry, urban affairs, and eeca-

Recardiess of how learned the expert
ov how scholarly the presentation, 1, for
one, canna comprelicnd how poverty,
sinm conditions, unemployment, cultural
or econnmiec need, or alloned diserimina-
tion—anas deplorable as they are—ean he
justification for lawlessness and rioting.
T, for one, Mr. President, have yet to be
fiven an scceptable exeuse for takings
the Jaw into one’s own liands. In our
country under the Amerienn sysiem of
government, Lhere is ne such exeise.

Tiowever, [T believe the Washiston
Evening Star in an editorial lest fetur-
day came close to the heart of the roant-
fer. The Star in my apinien prt iis
fineer on a danrerous trend in Ameries
at the prevent fime which we lave seen
manifested in Los Anrmeles, Sprimiuheld,
Mass., Chicago, TIL, New Yori City,
Selma. Als Amerieus Ga. and indeed
throuciioidc dl parts of the Unthed States.

The Star, calling: attention to a crow.
ine contempt for law ood the rindtes of
law-abiding, poopie, asked this very per.
tinent question:
