NO DKI'KNnKNTS Talk Incites Dixie Split With Truman South 'Fighting Mad' Over Civil Rights Appeal By Junk Hell Dem- ocrats talked bluntly today of call- ing n. Dixie convention to split away from President Truman on the civil rights issue. One Deep South Senator who asked not to be quoted by name told a reporter present plans nre to ask the conference of southern govern- ors to call an all-southern convcn- llon. Such a pollllcal could pick HH own cundkliitu for prunl- ricklaycrs in central Minnesota. The program is the first of its kind o be undertaken In Minnesota nnd ,he first In a rural area anywhere In the United States. Students are 41 young men. all but three of them World war H veterans, from the central part of the state. They were chosen from among 500 applicants. Instructors nre journey-men bricklayers and shop instructors from the Little Falls High school. For eight weeks they will work at learning the trade, living in army Issue, despite the fact that a major- ity of the votes at a referendum November 3. 1947, voted In favor or the Immedlato Issuance of In bomln for n. The prcMdont said the annual levy would be rruide until an appropriate time to build arrived, when a bond Issue would be sold to supplement the money al- ready In the swimming pool fund. Here arc the councilman who re deserting the people's bond IkMie for the plan: President Theurer, Flint Warder Ben Kbit Warder Loyde Pfclffer. Second Warder Jonrph DetUe, Third Warder Howard Itaumann and Fourth Warder Stanley Wle- ciorrk. Still backlnr the bond authorized by the people an Second Warder Walter Dopke. Alderman at lance Robert Dorsch and Fourth Warder StoUman. They all insist they want a pool. They're not saving when. They stood up u> be occurrence they have avoided for about o'clock last night, when a portion of the P.-T. A. delegation was still in council chambers for council re- action to two specific questions delegation hnd propounded: Doea the council want a sxcimmlnic pool nnd will It Issue the bonds before May I, 1048? Wall for DecbJon Tho questions were put to council by George member of the P.-T. A. delegation, about o'clock. When the oouncilmen retired shortly thereafter into com- mittee of the whole session. Clausen said the delegation would wait for the answer even it it took to o'clock. They did. About 20 were on hand when President Theurcr told them the council majority had kicked bond Issue out of the temporarily at least. The delegation, representing P.-T. A.'s at Phclps, and Jefferson .schools, applauded when the names of Stoltman. Dopke and Dorsch were announced. When Mr. Clausen presented questions In writing First Warder Pfclffcr wanted to know why the other city P.-T. A.'s weren't represented. Marcrl Choulnard. of l.ho delegation, arose U> say that thn othrr P.-T. A.'s hadn't, been con- tacted by the committee their last meeting and had had no opportunity to act. However, Third Warder said that at the Central P.-T. A. the move to appear before the council hod been turned down. A woman In the audience corrected him: The move hnd been tabled. As soon as the questions had been propounded to the council. President Thcurer gave tho delegation his re- action. Said he, "No one is opposed to the construction of the swimming pool, but as for the bonds that Lt something else. We don't know how much a pool will cost. In spending taxpayers' money we feel we should have accurate figures on cost before Issuing the bonds." He cited, the example of the homc-bulldcr to make his point. A home-builder, said the president, wouldn't borrow the money to build style barracks and eating nrmyla home before gcttlnc his plans and style food.

Clausen said problems like thoss were "little details" and that they were the council's province. "All we want to said he. "are your answers to these Questions. Well wait." Thereupon the council recessed Into committee of the whole ses- sion and several hours later thresh- ed the questions out. There First Warder Dopke con- tinued as the leading exponent of the immediate bond issue because: 1, Interest ratos aro low now, and 2, Issuing the bonds is a step toward getting the pool. Alderman Pfclffer, who now "Is the worst time in history to build had another thought on the proposal, however. Said he, "Just think If we had the money in front of us.
