Leslie Anthony 2215 o Avenue new to the editor senator Hickenlooper is reportedly asking How Senate passage of the civil rights Bill will affect the . Economy. The july 1963 Issue of Chain store age says that a Federal Law for bidding racial discrimination in retail stores would be helpful in localities where Segre gation is still required by local Law or custom. Once segregated Public accommodations Are no longer possible Amer ican customers will obey the Law. Then retailers and restaurant operators will not have to take sides and Busi Ness will improve.
