STERLING F GREEN WASHINGTON next big move in the civil rights fielc may be the longpromised presi dential order outlawing discrimin ation in federally aided housing President Kennedy has delayec for 20 months waiting for whal he has called an appropriate time to sign it A madetoorder occa sion is coming right up It is Saturday the 100th anni versary of Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation Yet Washington isnt making any bets Kennedy will find that anniver sary appropriate Lincoln signed two Emancipa tion preliminary one of Sept 22 1862 and the final freeing of the slaves on Jan 1 1863 So next New Years Day also would be symbolical But Jan l is months away anc the pressure on Kennedy grows daily Some advisers are sure that the appropriate time politically speaking is before the Nov 6 con gressional elections These same advisers want Con gress out of town before the order comes They fear it would affront Southern members whose support is needed on major administration bills In terms of economic impact the appropriate time might be even further away Builders say the order would seriously curtaii new construction activity Housing officials believe the builders ex aggerate For

looked easy Kennedy scoldec President Dwight D Eisenhower for not acting It could be done Kennedy said by a stroke of the presidential pen Making good on this campaign pledge has become one of Ken nedys most perplexing problems He decided the political difficul ties were far outweighed by the issues of law equity and consti tutionality After all Kennedy had irked Southern politicians when he promised the order And the nonpartisan Civil Rights Commis sion created by Congress itself has officially demanded it Still the question remains How far can Kennedy stretch his pres idential power Few have questioned his author ity to enforce integration in pub lic housing where the federal cash is a direct subsidy Not many challenge his power to bar discrimination by banks and loan companies in dwellings which are financed with Federal Housing Authority mortgage insurance or Veterans Administration loan guarantees Less clear are situations in which the government merely fun nels money when needed into the banking system and the savings andloan industry to pump up the supply of mortgage credit or merely regulates the lenders or just provides insurance for their deposits which may in time be come mortgage loans In these and other ways the government has some strings however tenuous on virtuaHy every lender Can it therefore dic tate the terms of his loans Most government lawyers say yes in this case They believe it would be impractical if not illegal to issue an order which binds some agencies in the housing credit field and not others IOWAN HONORED PHILADELPHIA National Jail
