Civil Rights Report
Greeted With Praise
And Charge of 'Bias'
-Recommendations of the Presi
dents Committee on Civil Rights
won praise and promises of action
by members of„Congresβ and spokes
men for other groups here today,
but also was criticized as being
"hasty and biased."
: Proposals for improvement of civil1
rights "shortcomings" in the Dis
trict came in for special comment
by Clifford H. Newell, president of
the Federation of Citizens' Associa- '
ttons, and Leon A. Ransom, Legal·
Committee chairman of the Wash- ;
liigton branch of the National As-1
seciation for the Advancement of
Colored People.
'The report submitted to President,
Truman yesterday by a 15-memner :
committee he appointed last De
cember called for Federal action to
end segregation and other forms of
racial or political discrimination,
particularly in the District.
'Mr. Newell predicted that the
major recommendations eventually
will be carried out by the people,
hut he added that "it cannot be,
forced on the people."
Bias Laid to Some Members.
"I was very much impressed by
the fact that there were no Wash
ington people on the committee and '
that most of them were far away
from Washington," he said. "There
were some very able people on the ι
committee, but they are people with ι
pronounced views. Looking over the
list of members, I feel that some of
the members were biased. I sup
pose I or any one else could appoint,
& committee of 15 that would de
cjde almost anything."
Explaining that his reading of the
réport had not yet gone beyond
newspaper accounts and the text of
the section on civil rights in the ]
District, Mr. Newell said he saw ί
nbthing to change the stand he took j i
irj a recent speech he made before ; !
the Brookland Citizens' Association11
oh racial segregation. j 1
"In the future, if colored people
and other groups advapce along so-1
cial lines and practice good citizen- l
ship, without doubt the recommen-is
dations of this report will eventually j ι
be carried out by the people. But it11
cannot be forced on the people." j
Mr. Ransom hailed the report as j
"the greatest step forward to the s
solution of the problems of civil j j
rights that I have ever seen in this s
country and, I believe, in the world." ; t
He said it should be included among ,
the historic documents aboard the
' Freedom Train." c
Ransom Calls for Test. ι
"This report," Mr. ftansom said, t
"contains the solution to all the t
worries we have about Communists 1
and Fascists and subversive in- j s
fluences in this country. If we can ρ
test it here, democracy will stand." - i

President Philip Murray, and Ben- j
jamin C. 8igal, president of the j I
Washington Chapter of Americans 11
for Democratic Action, were among j
others who commended the com- j ι
mittee's report and promised co- j ■;
operation in implementing it. ji
;Senator Thomas eautioned. how»!
ever, that law alone cannot wipe ι
out inequalities cited by the com- ; '
mittee. He also warned that I"
"minority groups which feel they! '
are hurt by various prejudices must
see that individuals in the group ι
live up to American ideals." j |
Promising he would work for con- j
pressional enactments, Senator
Thomas commented: "Law, of
course, will not settle the questions;3
raised by the committee, but law! ·
can become a guide to what is or ^
can be the ideal. Ultimately these 1
problems must be settled by educa- f
tion and by continuously working J
against every unfair prejudice."
Murray Sees Milestone. r
Senator Ives welcomed the sup
port given by the President's com- j
mittee to the pending legislation f
for fair employment practices.
Mr. Murray indorsed the report c
as an 'important milestone in the v
development and diffusion of Amer- j
lean democracy." He pledged full;
support of the CIO in bringing the j
committee findings to the public, j l
He described the report as "a full, ! g
frank and free disclosure by the j
various segments of our population 1
of their own shortcomings." He said
there was a "complete lack of any \
attempt on the part of one group to
blame any other group for what wo
frankly admit are the lagging in- ί ι
adequacies of our democracy." ! ι
A statement issued today by Mrs. .
Gertrude Rodman, acting chairman ■,
of the Committee for Washington 1
of the Southern Conference for
Human Welfare, said that commit- 1
tee "deeply appreciates the wofk of ι
the President's committee, which
backs up the program for which we ι
have been fighting." jl

U.S. Readies Proposal
To Carry Out Plan for
Partition of Palestine
By the A»lociot«d Pr«i
LAKE SUCCESS. Oct. 30.—The
American delegation today was put
ting the final touches to its longi
awaited proposals on implementing
the partition of Palestine into inde
pendent Jewish and Arab countries.
Drafted by State Department ex
perts after lengthy consultations
with Secretary of State Marshall
and his top aides, the' plan will be
offered to a United Nations parti
tion subcommittee by Delegate
Herschel V. Johnson. The policy dec
laration will cover American ideas
on how and by whom the Holy Land
should be administered for an in
terim period preceding full inde
A spokesman said Mr. Johnson
would make the speech by the end of
the week. Russia, waiting for the
United States to show its hand first,
was expected to follow immediately
with the Soviet version of how par
tition, if finally voted by the U. N.,
should be enforced.
Swpii»* Is Maintained.
American sources maintained
their usual secrecy on matters sur
rounding the Palestine question, but
it was understood that Gen. Mar
shall was considering, among other
ideas, the reported Soviet scheme
that the Holy Land be placed un-j
;der the supervision of the Security!
Council for the year-or-longer in-1
! terim period. It was considered
virtually certain that Gen. Marshall
would guard against making any !
outright commitment of American
Progress in the subcommittee has
been slow and Dr. Herbert V. Evatt
of Australia, chairman of the par
ent 57-naUon Palestine Commit
tee, extended indefinitely yesterday's
deadline on a report. However,
presentation of the American and
Russian plans was expected to bring
the issue to a head quickly and
perhaps force a committee vote
within a week on whether to ac-I
cept partition.
Another subcommittee working on
proposals from the Arab countries,
which oppose partition, also was
lagging. That group is attempting
to wrap up the variously worded
demands for creation of one in
dependent Arab nation.
Other Developments. ·|
Other developments:
1. The Assembly's 57-national Po
litical Committee was to vote on
an American proposal that the U. N.
create a temporary commission
which would insure that "truly
elected" representatives of the
Korean people would oe chosen to
discuss Korea's independence before
Ihe U. N. The United States orig
inally called for establishment of
a commission to supervise elections
leading to setting up a Korean gov
ernment. Russia Immediately de
manded that "elected representa
tives'' of Korea be heard, and the
American delegation then countered
with the plan for the temporary
2. The Security Council heard Po
land appeal for condemnation of
the Dutch as responsible for con
tinued fighting in Indonesia de
spite two Council cease-fire orders.
The Polish resolution also would
warn the Netherlands that peace
"ehffcrcemerit' measures" might be
necessary. The Council will meet
again tomorrow at Flushing
Meadow, where the General Assem
bly goes back into plenary session.!

duced a surprise proposal for world

5 WOOK Announcers
Walk Out, Charging
'Antiunion' Conduct
Five announcers employed by
Radio Station WOOK, with studios
at 1143 Connecticut avenue N.W.
and in Silver Spring, Md., were
on strike today against what their
union called "outrageous anti-union
conduct." WOOJC continued on the
air, however.
The men are members of the AFL
American Federation of Radio Ar
tists which has been seeking union
recognition from the station. WOOK
is owned bj£ the United Broadcast
ing Co., headed by Richard Eaton.
In a statement issued through its
attorney, Jesse B. Messite. the union
said one employe, an announcer, had
been given notice of his dismissal
in two weeks and another, a disc
jockey, had been told that his time
on the air, and consequently his
pay, were to be cut. The union
thereupon called the strike and
pickets were ordered to walk in
front of the Connecticut avenue stu
U l\J lilio ιπυΐϋΐ» Ig.
Challenges Union Statement.
Mr. Eaton declared the union's
statement "does not contain one
iota of truth" and was "a gross mis
In a statement issued after the
strike had been in progress several
hours he said the union had a "most
unusual conception of collective bar
gaining." and that he was not op
posed to "fair-minded unionism."
Mr. Eaton said he had been ap
proached on the matter of recog
nition only this Tuesday, and that
he had promised the union an an
swer on November 5. Instead of
waiting, he.said, a, picket line yas
thrown in front-of-his studio.·"
The union statement said the
strike was culled in pretest "a£»ioit
the company's unfair labor prac
tices and its refusal to negotiate"
with the federation. Mr. Messite
said the union had decided to take
direct action rather than appeal
to the National Labor Relations
Board becawse of the "swiftness" of
the station's actions In the case of
the two employes.
Inquired Into Affiliation.
The statement said that Mr.
Eaton had inquired "into the union
affiliations" of the announcer and,
"finding that the employe favored
union representation." served him
with a discharge notice The an
nouncer is Frederick W. Heckman
and the disc jockey was identified
as Harold Jackson.
The statement added that "the
union alleges that Eaton, to com
bat union organization, proceeded
to audition other artists to replace
this regular disc Jockey in whole
or in part."
Mr. Eaton, however, labeled as
"absurd" the charge that he had
