Mr. Truman declared the platform “should be very spe- cific and plain on civil rights. as it was in 1948 and as it was in 1952.”

But when Rep. Charles Diggs Jr. (Mich.), a Negro mem asked him for “guidance how that program should be carried out, especially in the light of events that have taken place since you were Presi dent,” Mr. Truman failed to go beyond the two former plat forms

At one point, Hugo Alex ander, an Ohio member of the Committee, made an attempt to pin the former President down on a “specific” civil rights recommendation,

Mr. Truman here suggested that the “48 and ‘52 platforms “be studied,” and added:

“I think the Committee is perfectly capable of writing a platform that will accomplish the purpose—and that is being fair to all of the people of the United States, for which the Constitution provides.”

Former Gov. John Battle of Virginia said te was “agreeably surprised” by Mr. Truman's tes- timony

Rep. William L. Dawson (II1.), a Negro member, indicated his agreement with Mr. Truman this way: “The Supreme Court is the law of the land. You don't have to put the law of the land into the platform. It should deal with principles, not specif- ics.”

Rep. Diggs Disappointed

Rep. Diggs, however, was ewe disappointed that Mr

ruman did not spell out his recommendations.

“The 1952 platform was a good one at that time,” Diggs said. “But it does not provide for things that have happened since (the Court ruling). It needs to be brought up to date Mr Truman did not exclude that.’

In developing his civil rights position, Mr. Truman quoted from a survey and a history of the civil rights program, “To Secure These Rights,” pre- pared under his Administration
