1963 Republicans Seek Civil-Rights Program
WASHINGTON — Nine Republicans in the House of Representatives plan to introduce a broad civil rights program and make as much noise as possible about it. Although their chances of enacting the program are small, they could embarrass the Kennedy administration by their move. Led by Rep. John Lindsay, of New York, the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee will introduce bills to establish a fair employment practices commission, give the Attorney General increased power to bring civil action in discrimination cases and abolish literacy tests.
