Sends Voting
To Congress
WASHINGTON (IP) -- President
Lyndon B. Johnson sent his top-
priority voting rights bill yester-
day to a Congress poised for ac-
tion, and declared it will "help
rid the nation of racial discrimi-
nation" at the ballot box.
With it, the President asked the
House and Snate to enact thir.
broad declaration:
"No voting qualification or pro-
cedure shall be imposed or ap-
plied to deny or abridge the right
to vote on account of race or
To enforce that provision, th
measure would erase state liter-
acy tests and similar require-
ments in low-registration and
low-turnout states, counties an(
If discrimination persisted, thr
government would assign voting
examiners to register people fo
federal, state and local elections.
The bill would focus its guar-
antees on six southern states: Al-

sissippi, Virginia and South Caro-
There, administration of ficial
say, voter turnout fell below 5C
per cent of the voting age popu-

Protestors, 600 Police
Crowd Sizzling Selma
Special To The Daily
SELMA, Ala.-The thermometer of the Royal Crown Cola sign
registered 78 degrees. It was on the wall of Walker's Cafe where
last March 8 the Rev. James A. Reeb was fatally clubbed. It was
obvious that the tense situation had not cooled down.
There were over 600 police in town or about two for every one
of Dallas County's 324 registered Negro voters.
The majority of the policemen were six blocks away, parked
in the middle of Sylvan Street behind the blockade that was
preventing several thousand civil rights workers from staging a
planned march to the Court House.
They were all there: Al Lingo's blue-helmeted state police,
deputized green-helmeted conservation officers, Wilson Baker's white-
helmeted city police and Jim Clark's dark-green helmeted county
police. They sat there munching on fried chicken, drinking pop or
reading newspapers.
Court Order
Finally late afternoon, a federal court order approved the march
and the blockade went down. The rabbis, nuns, students, Negroes
and civil rights workers marched two blocks up Sylvan Street, made
a right turn on Alabama, and went six blocks to the center of
town to Dallas County Court House.
At the corner of Lawrence and Alabama, a few noticed that
two letters were missing from the sign of the local Coca Cola
bottler. It read "Selma riendly and rogressive," instead of, "Selma
friendly and progressive."
The marchers progressed, but thousands of white onlookers
were not friendly. On Fulton Street, patient motorists began honking
as they had to wait to let marchers pass.
One man got out of his car and said to a policeman, "You
gonna let them stop this car?"
"I guess I have to ," said the policeman.
"Goddamn cattle," replied the man as he stalked back into
his car.
But on March 7 ...
On March 7, many of these same policeman were chasing many
of these same demonstrators down Fulton Street. Then the marchers
were on a 50-mile hike to Montgomery. They were stopped by
policemen who chased them back to town, ultimately injuring 70
and hospitalizing 18.
When the marchers reached the Court House, Rev. Martin
Luther King placed a memorial wreath for the Rev. Reeb at the
door of the Dallas County Court House. Rev. James Abernathy said,
"Rev. Reeb's spirits shall dwell at the Dallas County Court House
until every Negro is registered."
A few feet away, County Sheriff Jim Clark, who believed "the
Negroes want black supremacy," sat in his office. Sheriff Clark
wears a badge that says "NEVER."
But the Negroes in Selma now begin to think soon.

actions. A major policy question
facing EURATOM now is how
much the group will have to do,
with the U.S. in the reactor field.
The U.S., with a tremendous
supply of information and re-
sources in the field, has been sup-
plying these to Western Europe
but de Gaulle would like to con-
siderably diminish this influence
One reason for this is that the
French, the only EURATOM
country constructing reactors
makes reactors that use natura;
uranium, which is plentiful in
France. The U.S. reactors use en-
riched uranium, which must be
imported to Europe.
The French are trying to get
EURATOM to abandon a $29.5
million five-year research pro-
gram involving mostly American
reactors, in an attempt to draw
attention away from U.S. equip-
ment. An agreement under which
the U.S. was to provide three or
four reactors valued at $350 mil-
lion to EURATOM has been alter-
ed, with only three scheduled foi

ped because of disagreement with-

He pointed to the limits of coun-
tries such as Luxembourg working
alone and compared them to the
gains possible in a united organi-
zation. In such an organization
he said, the "miniscule" develop-
ment of France in the reactor
field will be insufficient to lead

the other nations. He concluded
that U.S. influence must remain.
The group has not been work-
ing as well as a united communi-
ty. Wells predicted that after Jan-
uary, 1966, when the European
Common Market, the Coal and
Steel Community and EURATOM
are fused, "cooperation will spill
