Advocate (Newspaper) - July 7, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 61 TELEPHONE la 5-K51 VICTORIA, TEXAS, TUESDAY, JULY 7, 1964 ESTABLISHED 1818 Battle Vowed By Scranton On Platform Rights Law Endorsement, Slap at Bircliers Requested SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Pennsylvania's Gov. William W. Scranton, trying urgently to halt Sen, Barry Goklwater's drive toward the Republican presi- dential nomination, Monday night promised a show- down fight over the GOP platform. Scranton said Republicans should say the new rights laiv is constitutional and [hat they should denounce, by name, the John Birch So- ciety. Both moves were obviously calculated as an attempt to em- barrass Goldwater. The Arizo- ta senator voted against the civil rights bill, saying he bought two sections of it are Intensified Integration Drive Opens THE ASSOCIATED PHESS Prominent Negro civil rights leaders unveiled Monday in- tensified desegregation cam- paigns in Alabama under the civil rights act as assaults on segregation harriers were launched throughout the South. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., president of the Southern Christian Leadership Con- ference, said at Birmingham, Ala., that his staff members will go to Tuscaloosa and Selma, Ala., lo assess Ihe situa- tions. "The problem in Selma and Tuscaloosa is to see that mob rule does not take over imple- mentation of the civil rights King said, "The action we take in those cities will depend on the resistance and conditions we find." Voter Drive At Selma, 55 Negroes and 6 white men were jailed when civil rights forces launched a new voter registralion cam- paign. Two Negroes appeared bear- ing signs urging an increase in voter registralion and were ar- rested by Sheriff Jim Clark. This prompted a singing demon- stration across the street, and the Negroes were arrested on charges of violating a city ordi- nance against demonstrating in front of the courthouse while court was in session. Later Clark arrested the white men, confiscating several base- ball bats, two night sticks and a rubber hose. New Law Noted A federal judge at Birming- ham, taking note of the new Civil Rights Act, continued in- definitely a Negro request to prevent police from interfering wilh peaceful demonstrations at Tuscaloosa. U.S. Dist. Court Judge Clarence Allgood said "Circum- stances have changed." A U.S. Civil Rights Com- mission group met with special committee in Atlanta, Georgia to map plans for hand- ling the new civil rights law and its interpretation in the state. Also in Atlanta, Lester Mad- dox refused for the second time (See DRIVK. Page 7) NEW PLAYGROUND Courtly Judge Wayne L. uneonstitulional, and he has Harlman (left) and Lcs Meis of.

Birch group. Command Post If Scranton's move alarmed Goldwater supporters, they lidn't show it. Scranton's proposals came at time when the senator's back- ers had taken over the entire 15th floor of the swank Mark iopkins Hotel as a command post. "We are highly lichard Klcindiensl, codirector of Goldwater's field aid. Scranton hopes to knock a hole n that optimism.

Mot True Reflection George Tntax, one of Scran- ton's top backers, told newsmen .hat Goldwater's delegate count, more than enough to cinch the nomination, "in no way reflects the desire of the average Re- publican (or a presidential can- didate." Scranton's strategy, Truax said, is to convince GOP voters Joldwaler can't possibly beat President Johnson in Novemcalc Nrvvs .SenJi'c CUERO-A plant to process raw gas into liquified pclroleuni t'ons.

The cily again ap- pealed, this time to the Texas- Supremo Court. The Supreme Courl ruled that the south half of the block belonged to the county; Ihe north half lo the city "wilh certain restrictions." Nobody wns really satisfied wilh ihis settlement and tho dis- pute continued lo simmer. In having gone through t h o dislrict courl and the appeals court again, the matter reached Hie Supreme Court a second time. This time the Supreme Court according lo Williams, toW the local people that il was tired of the mailer and "told Ihc-n wlial (hey could do." "What Ihcy could do" was basically wlial (he court had ruled six years earlier. The county owned tho south half the cily the north half, and Ihc city was granted permission to engage in Injunetivc action to force the county lo remove (he cesspools. The second decision also pro- 'ided that Victoria County could continue lo use the jail (present city police headquarters) "so long as it is used for jail pur- poses." The county continued to use Ihc building as a jail un- til I9M, Williams said, "al which timo the cily took over the building at no cost." "There is no legal restriction on the property Williams said, "except in the original grant from (he State of C'oahuila which specifies that it must be usnrt for public pur- poses." The mayor and other council- men earlier had said that sale of Ihe properly to the county will mean that it still will be used for "puhlic and therefore the sale is nol illegal.
