Carter, general counsel of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Miss June Shagaloff, the As sociation’s special assistant for education. Miss Shagaloff and Mr. Carter start their itinerary in San Fran cisco where they will attend the annual West Coast NAACP re gional conference on March 31. Other cities to be visited are Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Tucson and Phoenix, Ariz., and Portland, Oregon. The tour is in further imple mentation of a nationwide pro gram designed to rid public edu cation of segregation. This pro gram was adopted by the NAACP at its 52nd annual convention in Philadelphia last July. Actions challenging de facto segregation in the public schools of certain eastern and midwestern cities have already been initiated. The NAACP National Office representatives will consult with and advise NAACP branches in the cities on ways and means of meeting the school segregation issue in their respective commun ities, including surveys of dis criminatory practices involving Negro students and teachers, com munity action programs and, where required, litigation. At the San Francisco conference, Mr. Carter and Miss Shagaloff will meet with local NAACPt leaders from the nine-state re gion. In Los Angeles they will confer with Southern California NAACP representatives.

New Day Coming For Urban Negro Voters The Senate’s 77 to 16 vote for an amendment banning the poll tax and the U. S. Supreme Court’s I decision on reapportionment last week gave new impetus to Presi dent John F. Kennedy’s fight ; against unjust voting restrictions. I Deputy Chairman Louis Mar ) tin of the Democratic National I Committee said: “The tide is turn ing against those who seek to keep a strangle-hold on the political power of urban and minority group citizen. The Kennedy Ad ministration is determined to give every American his Constitu tional rights. Full voting rights in the South as well as the North are basic.” The Department of Justice is pressing for enactment of the lit-] eracy test bill in the Congress which would curb voting abuses in the South and also help Span ish-speaking citizens in many Northern cities. This measure! provides for the acceptance of a| sixth grade education as proof oL literacy. i Poll taxes in five Southern States, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, J Alabama and Mississippi serve) to cut down the vote among all) low income groups, Negro andi White. The margin by which the poll tax amendment passed the Senate surprised some Washing-1 ton observers. I The decision of the U. S. Su-| preme Court on reapportionment in the Tennessee voting case last 1 week is certain to enhance the; political power of Negroes in i | urban areas in the South and' North. i Deputy Chairman Martin point-1 ed out that there are over 70,0001 registered Negro voters in Mem-, phis and over 40,000 in Atlanta. When the vote of these urban dwellers begin to carry as much influence as the vote of the rural citizens in such states as Tennes see and Georgia, we shall see a new day in Southern politics. Deputy Chairman Martin also hailed the announcement last week by the Southern Regional Council' that it would launch a voter education project with par ticular emphasis on registration in the Southern states. He said:| “The Democratic National Com-; mittee is seriously concerned | about low registration in many sections of the country. Every citizen of voting age should recog-1 nize his obligation to register and vote. In the exercise of this ob-' ligation lies the greatest bulwark ( of strength we have against those who would subvert and destroy, our democracy.” I nesday for four weeks. | In addition, four special pro-| grams have been planned for Tuesdays from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. On April 17, the Rev. James A. Cannon, pastor of Calvary Pres byterian Church, will conduct a spiritual life session; on April 24, Mrs. Wiley E. Norwood, inter viewer for the Employment Secu rity Commission, will talk on ‘Job Opportunities”; on May 1, Doan R. Ogden, landscape archi- ■ tect, will talk on “Green Thum bers and Amateur Landscapers,” and on May 8, Mrs. Louise Eding ton will give beauty hints.
