MR. PJITMAN said that ex-
I
pting private clubs from the
bill is "a carefully devised rathole for those who spend their
time preaching integration for
the poor whites while philosophizing about it over cocktails
within the segregated helters of
exempt clubs."
e said he doubted that any
person who helped to draft the
bill or who is sponsoring it Jives
in a 10 per cent integrated neighborhood or sends his children to
a school with as much as 10 per
cent Negro enrollment.
