WASHINGTON () President
John F. Kennedy called on Con-
gress yesterday for new civil rights
It was a surprise move that
immediately brought criticism
from both sides in the controver-
sy. Kennedy asked for the elimi-
nation of poll taxes and literacy
tests. He did not elaborate as to
the ,method to be used.
Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-
Ga), long a leading spokesman for
Southern foes of civil rights meas-
ures, said he is opposed to both
Comments of other Southern
senators indicated strong opposi-
tion to elimination of literacy
tests for voters, regardless of the
method used.
However, many Southern sena-
tors have supported a constitu-
tional amendment to wipe out poll
tax payments as a requirement
for voting in federal elections.
Sen. Spessard Holland (D-Fla)
is the chief sponsor of an anti-
poll tax amendment. He told a
reporter he is glad the President
asked for action in this field.
But Holland said the use of lit-
eracy tests for determining the
qualification of voters is a mat-
ter that should be left to the
The Dixie forces drew some sup-
port from Sen. Everett M. Dirksen
(R-Ill), the Senate Republican
leader, in their stand against Fed-
eral action to eliminate literacy
Dirksen told newsmen he didn't
think it could be done except by
constitutional amendment-which
he doubts could pass.
Partisan tradition prevailed for
the most part yesterday in con-
gressional reaction to the State of
the Union report.
By and large, Democrats point-
ed with pride at the message as a
whole and described it in such
terms as "wise and sensible,"
"tremendous a n d eloquent,"
"strong and forceful."

poses Election Proposals

Republicans, in the main, view-
ed with alarm what they saw as a
continued drive toward more cen-
tralized government and excessive
Sen. John J. Williams (R-Del)
saw political dynamite in the tax-
cut proposal. "Any President could
use that in the middle of a politi-
cal campaign . . . then Congress
would be made the goat if it had
to raise them later," he said.
Sen. Homer E. Capehart (R-'
Ind) expressed belief the granting
of such power to the President'
would be unconstitutional and
said "I think Congress ought to
cut them itself."
The Republicans were support-.
ed on this point by Sen. Harry F.'
Byrd (D-Va). Byrd, chairman of
the tax-handling Senate Finance
Committee, said he would fight
the tax-cut authority.

Raps Clause
On Seizure
LANSING (P) - The Constitu-
tional Convention, after a four-
hour - debate, put its tentative
stamp of approval yesterday on a
search and seizure provision that
some authorities believe is uncon-
The debate was a continuation
of arguments on the "Declaration
of Rights" article submitted by
the committee on rights, suffrage
and elections, headed by Prof.
James Pollock (R-Ann Arbor) of
the political science department.
Prof. Pollock's committee rec-
ommended that the new constitu-
tion omit mention of specific evi-
dence -because of a recent United
States Supreme Court decision
which said illegally seized evidence
could not be admitted. Some mem-
bers said they felt the Federal
opinion made the Michigan clause
Convention delegates declined to
accept the committee suggestion,
and, restored most of the stricken
language by adopting an amend-
ment sponsored by Kenneth G.
Prettie (R-Hillsdale).
Michigan's search and seizure
provision is unique among the
states. It allows the use in court
of certain types of evidence seiz-
ed illegally in a search of an auto-
mobile, and specifically mentions
narcotics, firearms, bombs, explo-
sives and other dangerous weap-
During the course of the dis-
cussion, several delegates disclos-
ed they personally had been sub-
ject to what they said were illegal
searches. They told of being stop-
ped on the streets or in their auto-
mobiles and forced to undergo
searches which they called ille-

Critics quickly complained that
the President was seeking to sur-
round himself with power that
Congress ought to retain for it-
self. Few stepped forward with
outright praise for the tariff and
tax recommendations.
In addition to these two points
there were other new ideas of a
less controversial nature. Nobody
complained about the unveiling of
a suggestion for a "massive at-
tack" on adult illiteracy. There
was even a bit of applause when
Kennedy proposed taking advan-
tage of modern advances in vac-
cination to launch "a mass im-
munization program" aimed at
wiping out polio, diphtheria,
whooping cough and tetanus.

Katanga's secession-to be wiped
out under the Kitona agreement--
is finally ended.
The parliament scheduled a de-
bate on Gizenga's case today.
In his about face, Gizenga did
not specify a date, but indicated
he will show up here soon.
"He seems afraid to stay any
longer in Stanleyville and just as
afraid to come to Leopoldville," a
diplomat commented.

while, cut all communications be-
tween Stanleyville and foreign
countries to prevent Gizenga from

Senator Sets
Medical Plan
K. Javits (R-NY) introduced in
the Senate yesterday a medical
care plan for the aged he said
could be a rallying point for ac-
tion by Congress this year.
The bill would offer three al-
ternate health care plans for 12.3
million of the approximate 16 mil-
lion persons in this country 65
and over. President John F. Ken-
nedy has proposed that medical
care for the aged be provided with-
in the Social Security system.
It would be financed partly
through Social Security and part-
ly from general government reve-
nues. Javits estimated the cost of
the plan at about $1.23 billion
Javits said the bill would set
up three alternate programs: pre-
ventive and short-term illness ben-
efits; long-term illness benefits;
and private insurance benefits un-
der which the federal government
would pay up to $100 yearly in
