ity of interstate travel is broken for
the convenience of the shipper or
traveler, and not in connection with
\e transportation itself, then the
power of the Federal government
to regulate ceases because inter
state commerce ceases. Thus, when
a trayeler stops traveling, even
though he has traveled from anoth
er state, and asks for a place to
sleep or u place to eat, he has
broken the continuity of his travel
ing. His eating, sleeping, and re
creational activity cannot be said

It seems to me that Federal regu
lation of this nature is getting to
the point of absurdity in its efforts
to conrol the activities of a private
business. I raises also the danger
of the destruction of the power of
the States by the central govern
ment. Judge Learned Hand once
spoke of this danger in a remark
he attributed to Justice Brandies:
"The States are the only breakwater
against the ever pounding surf whi
ch threatens to submerge the indi

in which personality can exist.'
SENATOR ERVIN SAYS
WASHINGTON - Congress has
opened hearings on the civil rights
proposals. Last week the Senate
Commerce Committee was con
sidering the most swepping peace
time regulatory measure since Re
construction days when it began
hearings on S 1732. The measure,
entitled the "Interstate Public Ac
commodations Act of 1963", seeks to
ban "discrimination in public ac
commodations affecting inter-state
commerce". For the purpose of this
column, I shall discuss only this
section of the seven-point civil
| This measure, if enacted, would
present a maze of legal tamries for
businessmen, lawyers, and the cou
rts. At the outset it presents a con
stitutional question. Thereafter, it
proposes to grant broad and in
some instances hard-to-nail-down
powers to the Federal government
and the Attorney General. As draft
ed it is already conceded that the
Federal courts would have to inter
pret many of its provisions. Basi
cally, it would forbid discrimina
tion in hotels, motels, lodging hou
ses, motion picture houses, theaters,
sports areans, stadiums, exhibition
halls, retail shops, department sto
res, markets, drugstores, gasoline
stations, restaurants, lunchrooms,
lunch counters, soda fountains, and
The bill uses the phraseology 'sub
stantial degree", "substantial por
tion", and "substantially affect" as
the standard to govern the amount
of interstate commerce necessary
to bring a business under its terms.
I was very muc)? struck by the ad
mission of the Attorney General
when he appeared before the House
Judiciary Subcommittee the other
day and stated that these concepts
were clear in his mind. If this is
true of the Attorney General, it lea
ves open the question of how the
law would be applied, if Congress
should enact it.
Fundamentally, however there is
a more serious objection to the
measure. It fails to meet the Con
stitutional mandate of the 14th
Amendment and the "interstate
commerce" clause of Article I, Sec
tion 8 as a basis for Congressional
action. This is so because the "due
process" and "equal protection"
of the 14th Amendment apply only
to State actions and not to the ac
tion sof individuals. The accommo
dations sought to be embraced un
der the bill are not operated by the
State but are operated by individu
als. Congress has no legislative pow
er to act under the "interstate com
merce" clause. The "goods" invol
ved here, which may have in times 1
past moved in interstate commerce,
have ceased to be in interstate com
merce when they come to rest with
in the borders of the State.

DEAR MISTER EDITOR:
?I see by the papers where one
Congressman is complaining about
they got 4 full time plumbers on
the White House payroll. He reports
they got 20 bathrooms and if they
don't all break down at the same
time, one full time plumber would
be a plenty. What this pore Con
gressman don't know is that we got
certain standard stockpiling perce
dures fer Guverment workers as
well as fer supplies. The chances
are 10 to 1 they got enough plumb
ing materials stored in the White
House basement to build 40 bath
rooms from scratch. So they figger
that materials fer 40 bathrooms
calls fer 4 plumbers. That's what is
knowned. 'I see by the papers, as
Guverhment "logistics." I fergit
this Congressman's name, but the
odds is good that this is his first
term in the Congress.
Things is gitting more and more
complicated in the Pentagon Build
ing, according to the piece I got
here. It says the Pentagon boys has
just o n another "assistant"
that's got 38 words to ki| title. It
says here he Is "The Assistant to
the Deputy Special Assistant to the
Assistant for Space Office, Deputy
Director, Research and Engineer
ing (Tactical Warfare Programs)
of the Defense Department's Tripa
rtite Corporation Program, Sub
Group M. Military Space Re
search." When that feller writes a
letter. Mister Editor, I reckon he
has to put the letter on one page
and use another sheet fer his title.
It's a great pity. Mister Editor,
we can't git some folks in Washing
ton that appreciates the simple
things in life. Fer instant, take
that Mayor of a little town in Ala
bama named Newon. I was read
ing where they built a new town
hall and put a brick planter across
the front. The Mayor put turnip
greens in it, claimed he didn't know
nothing that needed less care and
looked so pritty. Farthermore, he
aims to put buttermilk in the water
cooler and is going to rig up a ven
ding machine where the town work
ers can git a nickle's worth of corn
bread. It would be a great blessing
to the country if we had a few fel
lers like the Mayor of Newton in
the Pentagon Building.
I have took note through the years
that country editors tells about
thint's in simple words the folks can
understand, and in a pinch I rec
kon they ain't no part of America
the people has got more confidence
in than the grassroots press.
Even here at home things git
more complicated every day. My
old lady went to the country stove
last week to git a gallon of kero
sene. In the old days the feller at
the store would stick a Irish pota
ter over the spout, but now he fills
the can with kerosene fer 20 ceiit
and, to hear him tell it, would have
to git another 10 cent fer the potater
to break even.
How Working Wives Manage
Working wives are now about 60
per cent of the women in the U. S.
labor force. Knowing how they mail
age their households-and how much
they contribute to family income
can help other homemakers derid'
whether outside employment pro
vides worthwhile benefits.
Family economists of the Agri
cultural Research Service have
been studying some of the economic
effects on the family of the wife
A recent study in Ohio included
both city and rural families and
both employed and nonemployed
Some of the working wives light
ened their homemaking job by hir
ing help to care for the chidlren or
do laundering, general housework
or sewing. Most of those with pre
school children (80 per cent in the
city, 90 per cent in the country)
hired some help.
The cost of paid help averaged
)450 for famliies with children un
der 6 years old, less than $200 for
those with older children only, and
roughly 100 for all-adults families.
Nonemployed wives who hired help
averaged less than $100 for this ex
pense, regardless of the family
The employed wives used some
if their earnings to upgrade their
vardrobes. Obviously, this was nec
essary to permit the wife to appear
suitably dressed on the job.
The family economists found that
>y far the largest single job-related
>xpense was income tax. Trans
xirtation to and from work was al
so a major item. After these and
stlier job-related expenses had been
ieducted, net incomes of the Ohio
wives ranged from about half df
heir total income for mothers of
areschool children to more than 60
aer cent for wives in households of
adults or of adults and older child
Seven out of every 10 wives pool
ad their net income with that of
heir husbands, two handled it sep
arately, and one polled part and
tept part. The younger wives were
more likely to pool their earnings
than the older ones-pefhaps because
the pressure on family income was
greater in these growing families.
The uses reported for the un
pooled earnings divided into four
approximately equal categories: To
provide furnishings, equipment, or
other household improvements; to
help with general living expenses
or to buy things for the children; to
pay debts or provide savings; and
to buy personal items for the wife.

"I don't appreciate this meddling.
Who are these guidance counselors
'itus question was put to Dr. Ed

His answer boils down to this:
"The guidance counselor does not
think he is God; he hopes others
will not think he is. He knows he
has limitations. He knows his job
is one of many tasks, but he sees
guidance of genuine importance in
helping students to understand
themselves, their abilities and inter
ests, and to aid them in setting
realistic goals for themselves-now
and in the future."
Ideally, the high school counselor
is a highly trained professional, us
ually with teaching experience, who
is available to each student for help
regarding his choices of career,
courses, college, as well as with
Unfortunately, there are only
11,000 persons engaged in guidance
in American schools. Only about
half of our high schools have them.
There should be a fulltime counse
lor for every 250-300 students.

counselees. It should enable a stu

father wanted hitrf to he a doctor

a poor risk in medical school. Tea
cher comments miade through the
years indicated that the boy exerted
himself just enough "to get by."
Unless the youngster underwent
a complete transformation (which
happens, but seldom), he couldn't
endure the rigors of medical train
ing. The counselor Jiad no recourse
but to make clear this unrealistic
goal, and the heartbreak of failure
was probably prevented.
In this case, the professional gui
dance counselor helped a student
whose ability had probably been
overestimated- The lad was being
pushed toward an occupation in whi
ch failure seemed certain.
Just as often, however, the coun
selor helps the youngster who has
sold himself shorf, not realizing a -
capability to go beyond modest
goals set for himself.
