SEGREGATION RIDER WOULD
KILL FEDERAL SCHOOL BILL
WASHINGTON _ The National
Assn, for the Advancement of
Colored People Friday called
on Congress to add an anti-seg
regation provision to the federal
' aid to education bill.
To arguments that such an
amendment would kill the bill,
Clarence Mitchell, director of
the NAACP’s Washington bureau
replied that such a threat was
a phony and a smokescreen.
Mitchell, who testified before
the Senate education subcom
mittee, drew sympathy from the
members but little support.
Sen. Morse (D-Qre.), the chair
man, said he believed in the
NAACP principles and would sup
port legislation to help carry
out the 1954 Supreme Court de
cision banning segregated
schools.

Predicts Defeat
But, Morse continued, if Mitch
ell’s amendment were tied to the
administration’s school aid bill,
the bill might be defeated.
The bill would provide $2.3 bil
lion in grants to public schools.
Mitchell told the senators he
was confident he would find some
senator to offer the anti-segre
gation amendment.
Sen. Clark (D-Pa.) said if the
amendment were offered the bill
might be filibustered to death.
“I think we have 55 or 60
votes for a school bill with such
an amendment in it,” Clark said
“but we do not have 67 and
therefore could not break a fil
ibuster.”
Under the cloture rule, a two
thirds vote is needed to halt a
filibuster.
