Erhard'Big Moment Nears
By JOHN WEYLAND
Associated Press Staff Writer
BONN-Ludwig Erhard, after
patiently waiting in the wings for
years, at last becomes West Ger-
many's new chancellor today.
Konrad Adenauer, the retiring
chancellor, did not want Erhard,
his popular economics minister, to
succeed him. Adenauer delayed his
retirement because he believed Er-
hard did not have the political
talent to follow him. Erhard built
up his following until he became
the only choice of the Christian
Democratic Party and its coalition
ally, the Free Democratic Party.
Together they control the majority
in parliament needed to elect him.
Erhard is taking over one of the
toughest political assignments in
the world. He has to govern with
a coalition. He takes over a coun-
try with politically explosive prob-
lems. He has to triumph over a
Social Democratic opposition gain-
ing more and more favor with the
'Father of Miracle'
Erhard brings to the chancellor-
ship 14 years of experience as a
cabinet member and great per-
sonal popularity as the "father of
the economic miracle" of postwar
recovery. He opposes the govern-
ment's mixing in business and
supports United States-favored
policies on Europe and the Atlan-
Erhard is inheriting a stable,
prosperous country but also many
problems that could blow up in,
his face during the next two years.
That is all the time left before
the next election, in which he
must lead his party to a strong
showing if he hopes to be re-

many is entangled in contradictory
policies.. It has entered into .a,
special close relation with France
but professes full loyalty to the
United States. It generally cham-
pions freer trade in the Western
world but because of farm and
other pressure groups supports
some protectionist measures in
the Common Market.
Adenauer has sought to eive
West Germany the reputation of
a peace-loving country but at the
same time has opposed United
States-Soviet moves to lessen
East-West tensions. He has re-
fused to accept the present bor-
ders in Europe, which would end
hopes for winning back East Ger-
many from the Communist bloc.
Erhard has promised to con-
tinue the main lines of Adenauer's
WASHINGTON-The drive for
civil rights is at an extremely pre-
carious point in Congress.
Informed participants in the
campaign to get thescivil rights
bill through the House see a seri-
ous danger that all hopes for
prompt legislation on the turbulent
racial issue may go down in a
political tangle, the New York
Times reported recently.
A crucial test comes today when
Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy goes
before the faction-ridden House
Judiciary Committee. He will be
trying to rescue a bill from a de-
veloping political impasse.
The real situation at the Capitol
is in sharp contrast to the rosy
picture some civil rights supporters
hae spainted. Their optimism
stems from the fact that a House
Judiciary subcommittee has ap-
proved the strongest civil rights
However, the wholly committed
civil rights advocates do not have
the votes in Congress to pass a
bill meeting their wishes. By press-

FIRST NEGRO TO RUN:
King To Seek High Post
Against White Candidates

-RANCONT, Ann Arbor News
ALBANY, Ga. (P)-For the first
time ever, A Negro is running for;
mayor of Albany and he and his
two white opponents agree he
hasn't a chance of winning Tues-
Why is he running, then?
"I am really interested in free-
ing the minds of Negroes because
many of them feel that no black
man should aspire for high of-
fices," the Negro candidate, Slater
King, said yesterday.
He lists other reasons.
-His candidacy "will help our
young Negroes feel they are a part
of the democratic process."
-Negroes are spurred to regis-
ter and vote.
-"We've had almost no train-
ing politically. This helps the Ne-
gro to think politically."
-"It also makes white politi-
cians, when you can deliver a
sizeable bloc of votes, a little more
cognizant of giving more recog-
nition to the Negro community."
King is acting president of the
Albany Movement, which has
pushed for desegregation in this
southwest Georgia city for several
Should Make Runoff
Of Albany's 58,000 population,
about 24,000 are Negroes and about
4600 Negroes are among the city's
16,646 registered voters. Political
observers feel King will get most
of the Negro vote and that this
probably would put him in a run-
off. A majority is necessary for
"I frankly don't think I would
have a chance in a runoff," King
said. "The way the city is run you
wouldn't think we had any Ne-
groes living here. It's almost an
extenuation of the- system they
had during slavery times when
Negroes were counted in the
population but had no voice in
The white candidates, Attorney
James V. Davis and architect Ed-
ward V. Jones, have talked mostly
about federal controls and taxes
and they have been pretty much
in agreement on their views.
Davis said he felt there would
be a runoff and that King would
be in it. "I don't think he has a
chance of winning," Davis said,
'unless the white people sit down
and don't go to the polls. People
are rather excited about it and
I don't believe they'll do that."
"It may be he wants to get the
people accustomed to having a
Negro in a race here-to break
'the ice, so to speak," Davis said.
Davis, a former representative,
got about 40 per cent of the vote
in losing to Mayor Asa Kelley two
years ago. Kelley is not seeking
Racial Bloc Voting
In the 1961 election a Negro
candidate for a city commission
seat made it to the runoff and was
then defeated in a vote almost al-
together along racial lines.
King conceded that the vote
Tuesday also will reflect white
and Negro bloc voting, but added
there has been some change in the
past two years.
"Even some segregationists have
said they feel the black man
should have a change to run for
Several Negroes have run for
offices throughout the state in
recent years but few have been
elected. At present there are eight
Negro members of the State
Democratic Committee, a Negro
member of the Atlanta Board of
Education and a Negro member of
the State Senate, Leroy Johnson

MORRIE RICHMAN presents
PROMOTIONS-German Economics Minister Ludwig Erhard, 65,
left, who willsucceed Konrad Adenauer as chancellor of West Ger-
many, talks in Bonn with Erich Mende who will succeed to Er-
hard's Job as vice chancellor. Mende is leader of the Free Demo-
policies, but indicated tlere will be
difference in emphasis and de-
tails. With this formula he can
remain true to his party's heri-
tage, a political necessity, but
leave some room for striking out
on his own.
On the basis of past statements
and actions, Erhard will work for
a Common Market of the type
sought by the United States and
opposed by France. It would be
enlarged to include Britain and
other Western European nations,
ending the division of the "con-
tinent into rival trade blocs. It
would lower tariffs on United
States products and those from
other nonmembers. It would stress
free enterprise, not the French
type of economic planning.
The recent French-West Ger-
man cooperation treaty does not
compel the two countries to follow
common policies, so Erhard will
not be blocked by it.
In domestic affairs Erhard is
pledged to continue his efforts at
"masshalten" (moderation), his
program for labor and manage-
ment holding down their demands
to prevent inflation.
Unlike Adenauer, who has run
things his own way with an iron
will, Erhard will not impose his
policies on the new government
but seek to put them over on their
merits. He is planning to handle
the cabinet like a team. This car-
ries the risk that he will be forced
to settle for compromise measures
and fail to carry through a pro-
gram that would impress the vot-
In the struggle for a comeback,
Erhard will lack clear control of
his own party. Adenauer, though
87, remains his party's national
chairman, a position of power.
This could mean trouble. Ade-
nauer has publicly belittled Er-
hard as an economics specialist
with no aptitude for politics.
