BREAKDOWN IN ENFORCEMENT

Panel hits rights failure

WASHINGTON (P) - The
Civil Rights Commission report-
ed yesterday a major b r e a k-
d o w n in government enforce-
ment of civil rights laws, and
laid part of the blame on a
failure of leadership from the
presidential level on down.
There has been "a failure of
leadership, a failure of the
bureaucracy, and a failure of
the American people," said the
Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh,
commission chairman and pres-
ident of Notre Dame University,
at a news conference.
The government's failure to
practice what its laws preach
has "seriously undermined - . -
the credibility of t he govern-
ment's total civil rights effort,"
he said, adding:
"Those who look to the law
as an impartial arbiter of right
and wrong and find that some
laws are implemented while
others are not, despair of the
fairness of the system."
"Unless we get serious about
this, the.country is . . . on a
collision course with everything

the opposite of what the Con-
stitution stands for," he -said.
"Agencies must be told t h a t
this is a first priority in the
government."
In a 1,115-page study it call-
ed the most important it has is-
sued, the commission said mi-
nority groups still get second
class treatment from the federal
government on a variety of lev-
els. despite existing laws that
cover almost e v e r y aspect of
discrimination.
"The great promise of the civ-
il rights laws, executive orders,
and judicial decisions of the
1950's and 1960's has not been
realized,",it said.
Part of the trouble, the com-
mission said, was low priority
for civil rights, and a govern-
ment-wide failure to give civil
rights enforcement- programs
enough money, staff and mus-
cle to get their jobs done. It
said the chief civil rights en-
forcement officer in every fed-
eral department should be up-
graded to the same level as of-
ficials in charge of programs,
and should get enough resourc-
es to do his job.

THE CHAIRMAN of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, the
Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, discusses the commission's report

ing t h e nation toward racial
justice.
"The commission is convinced
that his example of courageous
moral leadership can inspire
the necessary will and determi-
nation, not only of the federal
officials who serve under his
direction, but of the American
people as well."
'T h e commission examined
about 40 government agencies,
departments and programs and
called for a number of specific
remedies, including a kind of,
civil service Philadelphia Plan,
with deadlines to meet specific
minority hiring goals, to "ach-
ieve equitable minority group
representation at all wage and
grade levels within each depart-
ment and agency."
The report, a document the
size of the Manhattan telephone
book, said the government rlac-
ed too much emphasis on volun-
tary compliance, failed to make
use of available sanctions such
as shutting off government
funds, and was unduly passive,
waiting for complaints to come
in before investigating,
In many areas, it said, offi-
cials don't collect enough rac-
ial and ethnic data to have a
good picture of what is actually
happening.
Congress should give both the
Department of Housing and Ur-
ban Development and the Equal
Employment Opportunity Com-
mission the power to issue cease
and desist orders, it said, and
agencies should "place specific
limits on time 'permitted f o r
voluntary compliance."
"I am confident that a good
deal of what we- a r e recom-
mending will be done," les-
burgh said. ".. we're getting
as much response today as we've
gotten from any other adminis-
tration."
He credited former President
Johnson with "m o r e moral
leadership than any president
we've had" in the civil 'rights
area.
There was no immediate re-
action to the report from Nixon.
But sources close to the admin-
istration called the report "very
comrprehensive and quite coen-
structive,"and said it would get
careful study.

As remedies, the commission
asked President Nixon to° set up
a special civil rights subcommit-
tee of the White House Council
on Domestic Affairs to spot civ-
il rights problems and move to
eliminate them.
In addition, the commission
suggested setting up a civil
rights division in the new Of-
fice of Management and Budget
to keep tabs on whether money
was being spent on programs
that didn't comply with existing
civil rights laws.
"In the final analysis," said
the commission, "achievement
of civil rights goals depends on
the quality of leadership exer-
cised by the President in mov-
