Former EOC Chairman Clifford Alexande

Blasts lack
of support
from Nixon
WASHINGTON -Clifford
L. Alexander Jr. resigned as
chief of the Equal Opportunity
Employment commission yes-
terday with a blast at the
Nixon administration.
Alexander, a 35-year-old Har-
vard-educated black and a dem-
ocrat, said the conclusion is in-
escapable that vigorous efforts
ko enforce the law on employment
discrimination "are not among the
goals of this administration."
"It is my sincere hope," Alex-
ander said in a letter to Presi-
'dent Nixon, "that you will pub-
licly dispel these ever increasing
doubts."
Nixon's press secretary, Ronald
L. Ziegler, said, "The President
has, I think, made it very clear
the administration intends to en-
force the law in this area." Ziegler
said the record will bear him out
and added "the entire direction
and thrust of this administration
has been positive" in the field of
equal opportunities.
Alexander said his resignation
r as chairman of the Equal Em-
- ployment Opportunity Commission
will take effect May 1, unless
Nixon wants it sooner. He said
he intends to fill out the remain-
ing three years of his term as a
regular member on the commis-
sion, which was created by the
1964 Civil Rights Act.
Alexander tangled with Sen.
Everett M. Dirksen, (R-I1), last
month when Dirksen told him
during a Senate hearing that
ons "harassment" of private business
i- men must stop "or I am going to
the highest authority in this gov-
ernment and get somebody fired."
The White House said the next
e Em- morning that Alexander would be
from replaced.
Nixon's replacement for Alex-
begin ander is William H. Brown, 'a
Philadelphia black who was nomi-
nated for membership on the five-
:anada member board last year by Presi-
Later dent Lyndon B. Johnson.

is. There had been published re-
ports, evenbeforenAlexander's en-
,ende counter with Dirksen, that Nixon
and would name Brown to the chair-
manship.
re let Alexander said at a news con-
proper ference announcing his resigna-
ir job tion as chairman that Dirksen had
threatened to have him fired for
gainst "vigorous enforcement" of Pon-
South discrimination in employment.
At his vacation home in De-
n the bary, Fla., Dirksen declined to
comment on Alexander's resigna-
tion, saying "Why should I?"
Dirksen's criticism at a March
ow- 127 hearing of the Senate Judiciary
Committee's subcommittee on ad-
nment ministrative practices and proce-
dures was not limited to Alexander
mbers but encompassed as well the meth-
,and ods of the Labor Department's
Office of Federal Contract Com-
pliance and other agencies en-
stop- gaged in enforcing nondiscrimi-
local nation in employment.
s over In resigning, Alexander said he
was victim of "a crippling lack
of administration support."

COMMUNIST CHINA has agreed to full-scale negotiati
with Canada over the question of diplomatic recognition,
formants said yesterday.
Sources speculated the talks could begin next month.
In response to Canadian invitation, officials of the Chinese
bassy said on Feb. 21 in Stockholm they would seek instructions
Peking regarding a time and site for the main talks.
The Chinese are believed to have said they are willing to
talks without delay.
Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau announced last year C
would seek a diplomatic exchange with Communist China.
