GOP PRIMARY:
rHutchinson
Plans Raee
State Sen. Edward Hutchinson
(R-Fennville) will run for the
GOP nomination for lieutenant
governor.
He will probably be opposed by
Rep. George Sallade (R-Ann Ar-
bor), though Sallade, who has
promised to run for some state of-
fice, has yet to make a formal
statement of his intentions.
Hutchinson has the support of
Senate Majority Leader Frank D.
Beadle (R-St. Clair) who was also
mentioned as a conservative can-
didate for the nomination. Senti-
ment among the Senate Republi-
cans is rather strong against Sal-
lade, who has often crossed party
lines in the House to vote with
the Democrats.
Hutchinson feels he can work
with Paul Bagwell, probable GOP
gubernatorial candidate, despite
the highly-publicized difference
between Bagwell and Senate Re-
publicans.
"I can work with Mr. Bagwell if,
he runs for governor, and I know
we can straighten out any differ-
ences in our philosophies. I will
listen to his ideas and be influ-
enced by him, as I know he would
listen to my ideas and be influ-
enced by me.
"It is essential that candidates
work together, and I know Mr.
Bagwell and I could do so."
Bagwell and the Senate Repub-
licans, some of whom have open-
ly ttied to displace him, are cur-
rently meeting to reach working
agreements on major state issues.

PROTEST-Police drag away a picket at a Richmond department
store where 34 Negroes were arrested following an attempted
sitdown demonstration by them. Increasing instances of race
troubles are putting additional pressures on Congressmen to pass
civil rights legislation.
Virgi*niaPasses Laws
To Curb Negro Strike

RICHMOND W)-Tougher anti-
trespass laws aimed at curbing the
recent outbreak of Negro sitdowns
in white restaurants and other
places of business, went into effect
in Virginia yesterday.
Gov. J. Lindsy Almond, Jr.,
signed three bills rushed through
the legislature as Negroes contin-
ued picketing a large downtown
department store, scene of a recent
sitdown. Negro leaders said they
intended to expand their picketing
activities and had pledges of sup-

port from 2,000 members of their
race.
The new laws were passed in an
atmosphere of extra security at the
capitaol, where uniformed state
police augmented the normal capi-
tol police force in a watch for any
Negro demonstration.
Strict Laws
Sen. Fred Bateman (D-Newport
News) who handled the bills for
the administration, said the strict-
er laws weren't designed to imply
that the state would seek to en-
force segregation in the stores and
eating places.
Rather, he said, they would pro-
tect the rights of the private prop-
erty owner to conduct his business
a:> he might legally choose. He said
the property owner could serve
either or both races segregated or
integrated as he saw fit.
The new bills provide maximum
penalties of a year in jail, a $1,000
fine or both for trespass, encour-
aging others to trespass, or con-
spiring with others to trespass
after having been properly for-
bidden to do so.
Montgomery Protest
Elsewhere in the South, a group
of Negro college students staged
a brief sitdown protest against
segregation in the basement grill
of the Montgomery County, Ala.,
Courthouse. The grill was closed
and the 25 Negroes were ordered
outside. There they remained, with
a promise to reenter the grill as
soon as it rcopened.
At Chattanooga, Tenn., where
fire hoses and the threat of police
billy clubs were needed to subdue
throngs of angry whites and Ne-
groes Wednesday, the police force
was bolstered to suppress any fur-
ther mass racial demonstrations.
Civil defense officers and firemen
were pressed into service.
Members of Negro picketing
groups have concentrated their
efforts on one of Richmond's larg-
est stores.

Both Parties
To Pressure
Membership
Possible 24-Hour
Sessions Foreseen
WASHINGTON0 )-The Dem-
ocratic and Republican leaders of
the Senate refused yesterday to
budge from their demand that the
membership buckle down to ac-
tion on the civil rights issue.
Defiant talk from some South-
erners and pleas of physical hard-
ship met an equally stony reaction
from the leaders, Sen. Lyndon B.
Johnson (D-Texas), and Everett
M. Dirksen (R-Ill.)
The present issue Is whether to
go through with the Johnson-
Dirksen plan for around-the-clock
sessions which could exhaust the
outnumbered Southerners.
Johnson told reporters, "A sub-
stantial majority in the Senate, in
my opinion, is determined to vote
on a bill, and I can see nothing
else that can be done except to
apply ourselves and stick to the
debate."
To Get Job Done
Dirksen, replying to a protest
that the leadership seems deter-
mined to wear the southerners out
physically and mentally, said:
"We know what this is about, and
we intend to get the- job done if
we can do it."
The central issue is whether
the federal government should
take new steps to help guarantee
that southern Negroes can vote in
areas where they say they are
now illegally kept from the polls.
Sen. Sam J. Ervin (D-N.C.),
who protested against any cam-
paign of exhaustion, said also
that it would be foolish for the
Senate to tangle itself up now in
civil rights arguments. He said it
should wait to see what the House
passes and thus get a better idea
of what may eventually be done.
Ervin said the long Senate ses-
sions now being held, and the
even longer ones in prospect, cre-
ate a spectacle that "makes a
mockery of the legislative process
. a cause for wonder that adult
men will act in this way."
Pressed for Speed
Sen. Kenneth B. Keating (R-
N.Y.) disagreed with the idea of
waiting to see what the House
does, and pressed instead for
speed in the Senate.
"We talk about professors at
Tuskegee (a Negro college in Ala-
bama) not having the right to
vote," Keating said. "I wonder
when the Senate is going to get
the right to vote"
Sen. Hugh Scott (R-Pa.) tossed
into the debate a remark that
Senators who felt shaky ought to
take a physical examination. For
himself, he said he was in good
shape.
Southern Senators are commit-
ted to resist and filibuster as long
as they can.
With day-and-night sessions in
prospect, it remains to be seen
how long the Southern fight may
last.

Pam phlet
R e-Issue
WASHINGTON (M)The chair-
man of the House Committee on
Un-American Activities said yes-
terday the Air Force will re-issue
its controversial manual on com-
munism in the churches, but with-
out names.
The chairman, Rep. Francis E.
Walter (D-Pa.), said this was
reported to the committee in a
closed session by Dudley C. Sharp,
Secretary of- the Air Force,
Sharp previously had annoyed
Walter by apologizing to the Na-
tional Council of Churches for the
following and related statements
in the manual:
"The National Council of
Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.
officially sponsored the Revised
Standard Version of the Bible. Of
the 95 persons in this project, 30
have been affiliated with pro-Com-
munist fronts, projects and publi-
cations."
'Facts' Undisputed
The major Protestant denomi-
nations, with an estimated 35
million members, are affiliated
with the National Council.
Walter said after yesterday's
meeting that the Air Force secre-
tary did not dispute what the con-
gressman called facts contained
in the manual.
He said Sharp explained to the
committee that the official apology
was issued at the request of the
National Council.
Walter said, "The secretary said
he had no reason to believe any
of the statements in the manual
were untrue, but he thought the
Air Force should follow a policy of
not naming names, and the man-
ual will be re-issued on that basis.
Was 'Overly Cautions'
"I feel that the Air Force was
overly tautious in reacting the
way it did, but if that is the way
they feel about it it is no concern
of ours.
"What concerned us were inti-
mations that the information con-
tained in the manual was not
true."
Walter said in a statement be-
for~ the meeting with Sharp that
he expected the inquiry to be
attacked by "Communists, pro-
Communists, dupes and misguided
liberals .
Claims Communists Dupe
"It is a fact," he said, "that the
Communists have duped a large
number of the clergy as well as lay
leaders of the churches into sup-
porting Communist fronts and
causes which masquerade behind
deceitful facades of humanitarian-
ism."
