African Members Of U. N. Face
Fight For Boycott Of S.Africa
African members of the United i
Nations faced a tough fight today!
in an effort to win Security Coun- j
cil approval for a partial econum-;
ic boycott of Soulli Africa. j
The United States, Britain,!
France and Norway were all re-'
ported against the language of
parts of a resolution tabled be
fore the council Tuesday by
Ghana, Morocco and the Philip
pines. Since a resolution must have
seven affirmative votes includ
ing all five permanent members,
Britain, France, the United
States, China and the Soviet Un
ion to win approval by the 11
nation council, some hard bar
gaining seemed likely.
The Afro-Asian resolution called
on the council to approve a boy
cott of all South African goods
and to call on states to stop ex
porting to South Africa any ma
terials of direct military value. It
also called on states to cease
"forthwith" the sale and ship
ment of arms and ammunition to
South Africa.
The U.S. has announced it will
cease exporting arms to South
America when current commit
ments have been honored by the
end of the year. Britain and
France also were reported in fa
vor of an embargo on arms which
might be used by the South Afri
can government against Africans.
But the language of the resolu
tion was seen by the Western I
powers as too strong. 1 here were
indications the resolution as it
now stands would be supported
only by the three sponsors. China.
Venezuela, and the Soviet Union
not enough to win acceptance.
Bond Sales Are Up
In State, County
"Local and state sales of U.S.
Savings Bonds are continuing their
upward trend which commenced
the first of the year," bond chair
man L. J. Fullerton said here to
day when announcing July sales
of U.S. Savings Bonds in the coun
ty totaled $76,363.
He compared this with sales of
S63.616 for the same month a
vear ago.
Slate sales for July of 1963 total
ed S3.110.944, compared with 2,
702,306 in the same month in 1962.
"Federal income tax deferment
features of Series E Bonds seem
to be one reason why more people
are buying bonds," the chairman
noted. "E Bond interest, unlike
earnings of so many other forms
of savings or investment, need not
be reported each year for income
lax. Thus owners of these bonds
gain full benefit of guaranteed
compound interest as long as the
securities are held. Many persons
plan to hold their bonds until a
lime when they may be in a more
favorable income tax situation, pos
sibly with higher exemptions or
less income due to retirement.
This, of course can give a real
tax advantage when the tax is
finally due as the bonds are cash
ed. "More persons seem to be aware
of the fact that U.S. bonds are
never subject to state or local in
come tax. Also, Oregon banks re
port a noticeable increase in the
number of long time holders of E
Bonds who are aware of the fact
that these may be traded for Se
ries H Savings Bonds, which pay
interest each six months by gov
ernment check. There is no in
come tax due on the interest earn
ed on the E Bonds until the H
Bonds are cashed."
Results Not Known
In First Skirmish
Over Civil Rights
first important congressional civil
rights skirmish is over, but it
may be many weeks before the
real winner is known.
On the record, the House re
jected an anti - discrimination
amendment to a vocational edu
cation bill Tuesday and then went
on to pass overwhelmingly the
measure which more than triples
federal aid for job training schools.
The House passed the vocation
al education bill 377-21 after kill
ing the civil rights amendment.
217-181. Only 24 Democrats, all
Northern liberals, joined 157 Re
publicans in the losing cause. Six
Republicans voted with 211 Dem
ocrats against the amendment.
The bill would raise the pres
ent $57 million federal aid for vo
cational education to $237 million
in four years.
But before it sent the bill to
the Senate, the House engaged in
three hours of bruising debate that
saw Negro congressmen in sharp
disagreement and charges of hypoc
risy flying from both sides of the
political aisle. It ended in the first
civil rights vote in cither house
since President Kennedy's special
message on the issue.
After it was over, civil rights
supporters disagreed on the effect
the battle might have upon Presi
dent Kennedy's main civil rights
bill when it reached the House
Some thought Republicans who
went on record for the mandatory
cutoff of federal aid to segregated
vocational schools had committed
themselves to vote for civil rights
when it is the main issue before
the House in September.
Others felt that House Demo
cratic leaders, by holding the
party line almost solidly against
the Republican-sponsored anti-segregation
amendment, had damaged
the possibility of bipartisanship in
future civil rights battles.
