ABSTRACT
This article reports incidents related to the U.S. politics. The U.S. House may yet pass the so called civil rights bill before adjournment. This measure would set up a commission to study the state of civil rights, create a special division in the Justice Department to handle enforcement and increase the power of federal courts to deal with cases involving denial of access to the ballot box. The measure incorporates a program belatedly recommended by Attorney General Herbert Brownell. Another event focuses on the incident in which civil rights legislation back up the Supreme Court's school desegregation decision.
