New York — A barrage ot
criticism is aimed at Congressman
Arthur W. Mitchell of Illinois
this week for the letter he wrote
to President Roosevelt endorsing
Senator James F. Byrnes of
South Carolina for a vacancy in
the Supreme Court.
Mitchell had read into th'e
Congressional Record of June 13
his letter to the President, in
which he praised Byrnes highly,
with Byrnes’ reply which heg«n
‘ ‘Dear Mitchell, ’ ’ ignoring the
Ordinary courtesy of the usual
Congressional salutation, ^‘My
dear Congre^man,” or “My
dear Mr. Wtitchell^” or, £Ven
“Dear Mr. Mitchell. ,
The NAACP, which ha« long
■fought Byrne». for his unsavory
Kccord on race ^d laboi^ ques
tions, stated that Mitchell
toayed his conatltue&cy and the
Negro people at America in eyejj
eonsidering, eodorsenvnt of a maa
who has shown at every point iub*
determination not to extend gqH
tical social or ect^hmic equally
to th,e Negro. A letter like ^ioh
