NEW YORK — Representative
Mary T. Norton (Dem. N.J.) chair
man of the House Labor committee,
announced last week on Thursday
that all consideration and any fur
ther hearings of the bill making
the Fair Employment Practices
Committee a permanent govern
ment agency will be suspended un
til after election.
Dr. C. B. Powell, Assistant Di
rector of Publicity of the Republi
can National committee said: “Mrs.
Norton’s stand is in keeping with
her refusal, as vice-chairman of
the Resolutions Committee at the
Democratic National convention in
Chicago, to approve and incorpo
rate a plank in the Democratic
platform pledging support in Con
gress for permanent FEPC legis
lation. This was done in the face
of strong representation before her
committee by Walter White of the
NAACP, and the Rev. Maynard
Jackson of Texas, representing 25
national organizations with mem
berships of four million; Edgard G.
Brown, director of the National Ne
gro Council; Bishop R. R. Wright,
Jr.; Bishop James A. Bray and the
Rev. A. J Carey.”
Mrs. Norton is a Democrat and
the majority of the members of the
House Labor Committee are Demo
“Put to the first test of their
good faith with Negroes,” Dr.
Powell further stated, “the Demo
crats have failed. If they cannot
be trusted on the eve of election,
the Negro voters certainly can put
no confidence in them after elec
tion. They had their chance in Con
gress last week when this commit
tee met, to hasten the protection of
the Negro’s right to work without
racial discrimination. They refused
to act now and brazeniy made pub
lic their refusal.”
While Mrs. Norton and the Dem
ocratic Party adroitly by-passed ac
tion on the FEPC, the Republican
party has given complete assurance
of its stand by pledging the enact
ment of such permanent fair em
ployment practices legislation in a
plank definitely incorporated in the
Republican National platform.
