The Democratic Party

April 1956
New Republic;4/9/56, Vol. 134 Issue 15, p3
The article reports that Southerners in the U.S. insisted that the 1860 convention follow the U.S. court in sanctioning the extension of slavery to territories, but the court refused to do so. It was 32 years before the nation judged the U.S. Democratic Party fit to govern the United States. U.S. Senator Harry Byrd and his associates have said that if they cannot dictate the policy of the Democratic Party, then he and his associates in Louisiana, South Carolina, Texas and Florida, will wish once again to deliver their states to Republicans. But the U.S. President's support of the court ruling on integration leaves them no easy way. South Carolina, in consequence, is pressing now for a reenactment of the separatist strategy of 1948.
