Dl. 7701 Laws tor Protection Of Rights of All Called Inadequate The Federal Government must be given stronger statutory authority if it is to have a consistent and vig orous program for the protection of the rights of all, T. Lamar Caudle, Assistant Attorney General, told members of the National Lawyers’ Guild attending a conference at Howard University yesterday. The Justice Department’s author ity to protect civil rights rests on a “very thin thread of law,” Mt. Caudle said. Charles H. Houston, chairman of the National Legal Committee, Na tional Association for the Advance ment of Colored People, speaking immediately afterward agreed with Mr. Caudle that present law is in adequate, but stated the Justice De partment had failed to use the law it does have. The department, he said, had adopted a policy of "taking the easy way out.” Senator Taylor, Democrat of Idaho, told the 200 attorneys at tending the conference that he would support legislation to abolish the poll tax, outlaw segregation and eliminate job preference based on race, creed or color. The conference adopted resolu tions approving a proposed anti lynch law "with teeth in it” and amendments intended to strengthen the United States Criminal Code against persons who interfere with citizens exercising civil rights.

Davies, wife of the former Am bassador to the Soviet Union, slipped away from a White House reception and the Trench Ambassador’s wife rushed here from New York yester day.

She brought with her a bottle of perfume—French, of course—which she explained the Ambassador had sent because he couldn’t come in person. While the bride and groom cut the wedding cake and the brides maids—all in white—fluttered about the room, Mme. Bonnet and Mrs. Davies beamed on Pvt. Biddle like a pair of doting aunts. The soldier — now awaiting dis charge after two years in Walter Reed—was getting around very well on his crutches. So were three of his friends, also amputees from Walter Reed who had come to see him married. -The spirit of that Biddle.” mur mured Mme. Bonnet. “I don't know how many operations he's had, but he has much courage.” Mrs. Davies said her daughter, Mrs. Eleanor Close DeBekessy, had brought him to the Davies home originally because in her travels around Walter Reed she had par ticularly noticed his consistent cheerfulness. “One night, he came to visit us when he was about to have another operation,” she recalled. “He laughed and joked just as if it was nothing at all.” Booth Set Aside. Madame Bonnet met him when she invited some amputees to a party at the embasy more than a year ago. He came to other parties after that, including the ball given by the embassy for Margaret Tru man. When the embassy gave its bazar to aid France, Madame Bonnet had a booth set aside where Pvt. Biddle and a fellow amputee, Sergt. Horace Mauney, could sell the woolly dogs they had made in the hospital to pass the time. By that time, Pvt. Biddle had met and fallen in love with Miss Talley. He took her to the bazaar. Later Mrs. Davies invifed the soldier ar>' is bride-to-be to a party at her home. A$ a wedding present, the former Ambassador and Mrs. Davies sent a silver service for six. While the bride and groom were explaining to friends that they’d have to go apartment hunting here as soon as they returned from their honeymoon, Mme! Bonnet kept talk ing about “that Biddle.” She and Mrs. Davies knew a great deal about the young soldier who went to war direct from a Philadel phia high school and was hit by a mortar shell on the road to Rome. They knew about the nerve opera tions that bad been tried to bring back the full use of his arm. And they recalled how he had quickly hidden the disappointment of not being able to wear his artificial leg for the wedding. “Just after he was released from the hospital, he fell down," Mrs. Davies explained. “The fall made his wound sore again.” “But he’s looking very well today, don’t you think?" Madame Bonnet queried anxiously. Mrs. Davies smiled her agreement and strolled off to tell Mrs. Effle Talley of Greensboro what a fine son-in-law she was getting.
