Henry K. Sherrill, presiding bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Chinch, was chairman for the committee- meeting. The com mittee was created last year by executive order to make a report and recommendation to the Presi dent on the general question of civil rights. Held National Problem. The committee, Mr. White said, “has perhaps the most Important Job in the United States today.” He sold neither the States nor private enterprise could end dis crimination, a national problem. "I want to explode the fallacies that the Job cannot be done by legis lation and done,quickly,” he said. He recommended that the com mittee ask for legislation which would make It possible for Congress to end a filibuster by a majority vote rather than by the two-thirds now required.
