a civil rights program today which he said provides the most responsible reasonable and gently needed solutions to this problem Kennedy outlined in a special message a legislative package that amounts to one of the broadest civil rights programs proposed in nearly a century The major aims of the program are to give Negroes equal accommodations in such public facilities as rants hotels theaters and recreational areas to speed school desegregation to provide fair and full to set up on the level through executive action a community re- lations service to work with local biracial groups and to bar federal assistance to any program or activity in which racial nation occurs Asks Extended Session The program is certain to set off long weeks of heated debate in Congress particularly about the sections on discrimination by vately owned public tions and a bar against federal aid for activities in which such discrimination occurs In obvious anticipation of that battle Kennedy asked Congress to stay in session this year until it has as a gle omnibus most re- sponsible reasonable and ly needed solutions to race tions difficulties He asked every member of Con- gress to set aside sectional and political ties and to look at this issue from the viewpoint of the nation Asks Equal Entry On the point of privately owned facilities serving the public said simply that he was posing a provision to guarantee all citizens equal access to the services and facilities of hotels and restaurants places of ment and retail establishments While the message did not go into detail a draft also sent to

rales Compromise Questioned Just how much of an agreed compromise the governor's posal is remained a question In- dividual Democrats and cans tended to view the package dimly and refused to go on record as favoring il There also was some grumbling at the exact balance struck be- tween spending provisions in the budget and the proposed new revenue measures The is that the fax package contains a built-in deficit of at least million for the next Legislature lo cope with The million is the fall realized by the quarterly withholding of ate income taxes Collection of the individual income tax in- crease for 29 months instead of 24 will add another million lo million to the built in deficit Reynolds proposal would raise an estimated million in taxes for to balance a million budget The addition of one rales retroactive to Jan I would raise million of the new enue total The remainder includes a million windfall from the terly withholding of corporate in- come million from property tax relief

Other Attempts Lost Kennedy said the state and lo- cal approach and voluntary forts have been tried in ending of the type dealt with in this key section of his gram But these he said are insufficient to prevent the free flow of commerce from being arbitrarily and inefficiently restrained and distorted by dis- crimination Kennedy said an explosive tional problem cannot wait solutions and federal
