Civil Rights Bill
By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH
WASHINGTON UP) Two
Dixie lawmakers warn that the
Truman administration had bet
ter refrain from broadening new
civil rights housing regulations
it it wants Congress to approve
more nome-buiimng legislation,
At the same time, a high gov
ernment official told a reportcT
that the administration ''will
take full advantage of its exe'
cutive powers" to achieve the
objectives of President Trumen's
hotly disputed civil rights pro
"But," this official added, "we
are going to be very careful not
to take any steps on our own
which require prior authorization
by Congress." He asked not to"
be identified by name.
The go-slow advice came from
Senators Sparkman(D-Ala) and
Johnston (D-SC). They spoke out
after two genvernment agencies
announcea mat new rules, curb
ing the use of agreements which
restrict the selection of tennants,
will go into effect Feb. 15.
The agreement, or covenants
are those which bar sale or rent
o: dwellings to persons of certain
races or creeds.
The federal housing admlnis.
Iration said it will deny home
loan insurance, or mortgage fi
nancing, in any case where a
covenant Is filed in the public
records alter reo. la.
And the Veterans administra
tion announced that after that
time it won't back up new mort
gage guarantees in cases where
a public covenant Is discovered.
Unwritten covenants are not
affected. Nor are agreements
and loans prior to Feb. 15.
The broad outline of the new
policy was announced early this
month by solicitor General Philip
B. Perlman. He said the Truman
administration would cut off fed
eral financing for any new dwell
ings where occupancy is restrict
ed on the grounds of race or re
ligion. But the next day FHA chief
Franklin D. Richards Issues a
"clarifying statement" which
said the new rules would not
attempt to controI "any owner in
determining what tenants he still
have or to whom he shall sell
