Republican leaders in Congress
are insisting that they are not
dragging their feet or making
deals to prevent the passage of
a civil rights bill.
GOP leader Everett M. Dirk
sen of Illinois told the Senate
this week there was no truth to
Fate In Hands
WASHINGTON tVPI) The
White House held the key today
to the fate of the billion-dollar
Democratic housing bill.
Republicans said it wouldn't
surprise them if President Eisen
hower vetoed it, just as he did
a costlier measure eight weeks
ago. Some Democrats predicted
that if he did, the Democratic
Congress would override his veto
for the first time since he took
There was some talk about a
special session of Congress this
fall to deal with the problem.
The House late Thursday ap
proved the "second try" bill 283
105 and sent it to the White House
after defeating a scries of at-
lem)ts to revise the measu e a d
make it more to Eisenhower's
Democrats said they already
had scaled it down to met most
of the objections Eisenhower list
ed in his veto of a Sl.375.4U0.OO0
bill July 7 and it was time for
the President to "give," as one
a newspaper report that the ad
ministration was not interested
in passing a bill now because it
felt it could get a better one in
the 1910 election year.
The Democrats, he reminded,
are in control of Congress.
And House Republican leader
Charles A. Halleck of Indiana,
using the White House as a fo
rum, has denied that House Re
publicans would help stave off a
civil rights bill this year in ex
change for Southern Democratic
votes on the labor reform bill.
When asked if the Republicans
on the rules committee would vote
to send the bill to the floor, he
said he didn't know but pointed
out that the committee is 8 to 4
Revival of Tho Coalition
Regardless of a "deul," spoken
or unspoken, the House vote fur
the administration-backed bill
was the best evidence yet of re
vival of the coalition of Republi
can and Southern ' Democrats
which once plagued Presidents
Roosevelt and Truman.
Now it plagues the liberal
Democrats who up to a few
months ago had thought the 1958
election had put them back in
There was ample evidence last
winter that House GOP leaders
were in no mool to crusade for
a civil rights bill this year. It
could be that they wanted help
from Southern conservatives to
keep the Democratic new dealers
f:om running tlie snow, in any
case, they have had most of the
help they needed.

struction years, the civil rights
issue provided a good football.
With Southern Democrats dis
senting, each party declared it
self against racial discrimina
tion, but few in Congress took
the commitment very seriously
Among men who had to live with
each other on dozens of other
issues, it was easy to lose a civil
rughts bill in the cumbersome
machinery of Congress.
Now the pressure has grown
greater and the racial and labor
groups demanding civil rights
legislation seem more aware of
how the congressional machinery
Knowland Forced Showdown
William F. Knowland, the Sen
ate Republican leader, forced the
1957 showdown in the Senate,
where all civil rights bills had
died for years, although he later
had to yield management of the
bill to Democratic leader Lyndon
In his Senate speech this week,
Dirksen applauded Knowland for
his "daring step" in 1957. Yet he
has contented himself so far this
year with applying the needle on
Democrats rather than taking the
lead to force a showdown.
On U.S. Visit
WASHINGTON ITI Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev's
forthcoming 12-day tour of the
United States is shaping up as
an all-out propaganda effort on
the part of the e.iexgetic Russian
leader to sell his "peace and
friendship" theme to the Ameri
This was the view expressed to
day by some of the officials en
gaged in working out with the
soviet Embassy the de'.a:is of the
Khruslichev visit. It ti-gins in
Washington Sept- 15 and takes
him to six other American cities.
They said Soviet officials have
shown particular interest in
scheduling Khrushchev to appear
before large crowds in mass pop
ulation centers where radio and
television connections are good.
Ignores Small Towns
The Soviet leader has shown no
interest in visiting smaller towns
to get a more representative
cross-section view of American
President Eisenhower himself
noted this at his latest news con
ference when he declared that
the closest Khrushchev would
come to the "think'ng people" of
rural America was when he
makes a brief visiti to Iowa State
College at Ames.
