McDowell P.4 RIGHTS COMMISSION IN PHOENIX FOR STUDY WASHINGTON, D.C. The Commission on Civil Rights will hold a one day hearing in Phoe nix on Saturday, February 3, to assess the status of civil rights. The Commission is an inde pendent bi-partisan fact-finding agency established by Congress in 1957. According to Berl I. Bernhard, commission staff director, this hearing is part of a long range project which includes the study of civil rights of minorities in a diverse group of urban centers. The Commission’s past studies in the fields of voting, public education, housing, employment, and the administration of justice show these areas are so closely connected that they are best stud ied in relationship to each other. Cities to which minorities con tinue to migrate provide a good context for the conduct of a study. He emphasized the Commis sion is not visiting Phoenix in response to complaints but to gather facts with which to assert the current status of civil rights. Commission hearings have been held in the past four years in such cities as New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, Montgomery, Los An geles and San Francisco. - The Commission’s duties as defined by Congress are: (1) To investigate complaints regarding deprivations of the right to vote; (2) To study and collect in formation concerning legal de velopments constituting a denial of equal protection of the laws 1 under the Constitution, and, (3) To appraise the laws and! policies of die Federal Govern-, ment with respect to equal pro tection of the laws under the Constitution. Mr. Bernhard also said the I Commission staff will collect factual materials prior to the hearing and that it will visit Phoenix during the month of Jan uary in preparation for it. Members of the bi-partisan Commission are: John A. Han nah, Chairman; RobertG,Storey, Vice Chairman; Rev. Theodore M, Hesburgh, C.S.C., Erwin N. Griswold, Robert S, Rankin, and Spottswood W. Robinson, 111, C ommissioners. NAACP MEMBERS CALLED SCUM MONTGOMERY, ALA. - Mrs. Bettye Frink, Alabama Secretary of State, admitted under direct examination by NAACP Attorney Fred D. Gray of Montgomery that she had been correctly quoted by a local newspaper which re ported her as saying she would resign her job rather than reg ister the NAACP which, she said, had been ’’justly outlawed in this state and should remain so.” The NAACP, she said, was ’‘made up of thieves cut-throats and the scum of the earth.” In a prepared statement re released and published in the midst of the trial, she went on to say: ‘‘To turn this bunch loose again on Alabama would be like turning loose a pack of mad dogs. I would be willing to spend every hour of every year in court if I could help in any way to see that the NAACP is pushed out of America to the shores of Russia where their headquarters lie.” HAGLER’S I BARBER SHOP 8/6 pm Turns.-Ffi. 8/7 pm Sot. 345 E.
