ABSTRACT
The articles presents news briefs related to political developments in the U.S. Republican politician Dick Bolling, who has been waiting for civil-rights legislation for a year. Last week it came, when civil-rights legislation was inextricably stalled in the Rules Committee under the governor of Virginia Howard W. Smith. The committee has eight Democrats, four Republicans. But at the end of a bloody, three-hour behind closed doors session, the U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's civil-rights legislation was voted out, reportedly 7 to 3, with Bolling leading a bipartisan revolt against Virginia die-hard Smith who was the most surprised and angry man in Washington. The article further comments on newspaper reading habits of the President Eisenhower.
