06:10:32 White woman: I am Mrs. John Gates, one of four wives, who have come here today in the interest of our husbands, families, fair play & the best traditions of American Democracy. We have seen Attorney General Howard J. McGrath to ask for immediate bail for our husbands.

06:10:59 White man: I am in this case because I believe in Freedom. This country grew strong because it was free. In my opinion, Section 10 of the Smith Act is not only unbecoming a free country but is also unconstiutional.

The Telenews Daily - Atlantic Union Proposed (Kefauver; Pro & Con on Poll Tax)

09:49:01 Senator Estes Kefauver at desk, looks up & speaks (SOF): Today I filed in the United States Senate a concurrent resolution. This resolution is being sponsored by 17 distinguished members of the United States Senate & also by a group in the House of Representatives. The purpose is to request the President to call a Convention of the Atlantic Treaty to see what further steps they may take to a closer cooperation & federation. The idea of the resolution is to try to bring together all of the elements which must go into peaceful relations & getting along w/ one another for a unified purpose. This not only includes a treaty such as we have & a rearmament, but it includes economic monetary matters, a common foreign policy; and all of the other things which bring people close together. This, I believe, if representatives of these nations can meet & discuss further steps towards federation we can really bring together the countries, democracies, of the North Atlantic into a great group which can work together for the purpose of maintaining peace & keep the world from war for many, many generations.

09:50:32 Congressman Earl Chudoff at microphone w/ Capitol behind (SOF): The anti-poll tax bill is one bill that I am very proud to vote for. In my platform as a candiate for Congress in the 4th Pennsylvania District I told my constitutents I was for President Truman s Civil Rights Platform. Theis is the first of the three bills that will come before the House during this session. The other two bills will probably be a Federal FEPC bill, and a Federal Anti-Lynching bill. There are quite a few members, especially from the South, against this legislation & as a freshman Congressman yesterday I saw my first so-called House filibuster when the Southern Democrats caused seven or eight roll-calls to stop a vote on this particular type of legislation. I can say that one of the bills that I am very proud to vote for & one of my proudest votes will be my vote for this bill when the final vote is taken.

09:51:36 Unid. Southern Congressman in same place SOF: I am opposed to the anti-poll tax bill, first because I consider it to be absolutely un-constitutional. If the Federal Government can determine the qualification of the electors of the various states, in my opinion eventually they can dominate the elections of this nation which would lead to total dictatorship eventually. There are moves behind this program other than removing restrictions for voting purposes. In my opinion the two major parties are making a political football out of this type of program trying to capture the votes of the Negro race in the north & in the eas. In my state we charge $2 per year for two consecutive years for poll tax. This is assessed against all of our people regardless of race or color. The only requirement is that if they pay this poll tax by February 1st for two consecutive years they are qualified electors.

10:17:13 LS, then MS of President Truman, Ralph Bunch, Mrs. Bethune, Madame Pandit (Indian Ambassdor to US); audience applauding.

10:17:27 Woman in formal gown at microphone reading SOF: The National Council of Negro Women commends & honors you for your distinguished service to mankind, Miss Bethune, Doctor Bunche.

10:17:47 ?? at microphone SOF: The President of the United States. Truman: While the individual members of the United Nations are working to compose their differences by the peaceful processes of concilliation & negotiation, they are also moving vigorously towards the fulfillment of ideals which are deeply rooted in our own American history & tradition. Our own founding fathers were deeply concerned w/ the preservation of individual liberties under the Federal union. The United Nations Commission On Human Rights has formulated these principals in a great document which can apply to all the peoples of the earth, The Declaration of Human Rights.

10:18:43 All of us who are here tonight have a deep interest in that great enterprise. The extension of freedom of opportunity to all our citizens w/o racial or religious discrimination. The people of this country have made, and we are making, progress in this call. We are...to the true meaning of equality, equality of opportunity, equality of a chance to get an education, equality in the economic world. We will continue to advance in our program of bringing equal rights & equal opportunities to all citizens.

[Johnson Speech To Congress re Voting Rights]

Extracts from LBJ s historic Special Message to the Congress: The American Promise, 15Mar65:

...And who among us can say that we would have made the same progress were it not for [the American Negro s] persistent bravery, and his faith in American democracy...

...There have been many pressures upon your President and there will be others as the days come and go. But I pledge you tonight that we intend to fight this battle where it should be fought: in the courts, and in the Congress, and in the hearts of men...

...This bill will strike down restrictions to voting in all elections - Federal, State, and local - which have been used to deny Negroes the right to vote. This bill will establish a simple, uniform standard which cannot be used, however ingenious the effort, to flout our Constitution. It will provide for citizens to be registered by officials of the United States Government if the State officials refuse to register them...

...I want to be the President who helped the poor to find their own way and who protected the right of every citizen to vote in every election. I want to be the President who helped to end hatred among his fellow men and who promoted love among the people of all races and all regions and all parties. I want to be the President who helped to end war among the brothers of this earth...
