Georgia Would Ban 14th, 15th

Amendments

ATLANTA. Ga The

Legislature Friday made cm- other attempt to turn the

clock back when it asked Congress to declare the 14th and 15th Amendment to the United States Constitution null and void.

The Georgia la^irmakers claimed that the 39th. 40th and 41st Congresses, which passed the Amendments after the Civil War, were "nothing more than private assemblages, unlawfully at- tempting to exercise the legislative power of the United States."

Golden Stale. Agents Seek Settlement

The Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Co. anrf the Golden State Agency Club, which rep- resents the majority of the com- pany's agents in California. were closeted in conference ,. Wednesday in an attempt to iron out the differences which led to Suspension of a numher of the^agents early this month.

Appro.ximately 4CK1 policy writers are involved in the dis- pute which centers around the filling out by the apents of cer- tain itemized report forms.

Views Differ

The company, through 1 t s public relations manager- Mrs. Verna Hickman, claims that the firm is attempting to install uniform practices and that it is well within the company's prerogative to determine the type of forms required to meet its bookkeeping needs and pro- tect the rights of policy-holders.

The union, however, through its special representative and chairman of its negotiating committee. Ike .\dams, takes the view that the new forms re- quire a considerable increase in boo^ work for the agents, thereby decreasing their selling time, that the commission on the policies in question is 50 per cent lower than on other types of policies, and that since in reality a loss of income is involved, the matter is negoti- able.

No Bad Blood

Adams said that "We're in- te»ested in seeing that the agents get what they justly de- serve, and also that the com- pany doesn't by-pass the union."

Both Mrs. Hickman and Adams- however, emphasized that there's no "bad blood" be- tween the company and the imion. Mrs. Hickman empha- sized that there was no ques- tion at all of any misuse of funds, adding tbat the agents regularly made reports of the totals received. ;

Adams insisted that Goliden State is^a "good" company and that the asents have no desire to harm either .the company or the policy ownelfs. He felt con- fident the matter could be handled through negotiation.

MONTGOMERY, Ala— Police Chief G. J. Ruppenthal Monday accused members of the Ku Klux Klan for the recent bomb- ing of Negro churches and homes.

Gok( Coast to

Attain Self-Rule On March 6

WASHINGTON— The Gold

Coast, British West. Africa, will become an independent state within the British Common- wealth on March 6. The coun- try will then be knov^ as Ghana.

Celebrations will start on Sunday, March 3 and close on Sunday, March 10. Her Majes- ty Queen Elizabeth II will be specially represented by Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Kent.

Parliament to Open

On Independence Day, the first session of the Parliament of Ghana will, be opened by Her Royal Highness on ftehalf of the Queen.

The United States will be represented by Vice President Richard Nixon.

Dr. Kwame Nkruma has been prime minister since 1952, when the office was created. Up to the present time, how- ever, his powers, and those of his cabinet have been limited, with the important posts of foreign affair.s, defense and police subject to the authority of the governor who is appoint- ed by Great Britain.

Ovexlordship Ehded

With the inauguration March 6, the governor's powers will be removed.

Final date for severa|nce of the British overlordship was agreed upon following the elec- tions to the 104-member single chamber legislature in July, 1956. At that time the Conven- tion Peoples Party (CPP) won 71 seats.

The history of the modern Gold Coast is comparatively short. Small British trading settlements came under Brit- ish Government control in 1821. It is only in the last 75 years or so that the present terri- i tory, covering 92,000 square miles, and with a total popula-' tion of some Ipur and one-half millions, has been built up. Date of Treaty

Today the territory comprises the colony . and Ashanti, the Northern Territories and the Trust territory of Togoland un- der United Kingdom adminis- tration. ■

The date chosen for indepen- dence, March 6, is the date the agreement between the British and the Fanti chiefs was sign- ed in 1844.

In 1850 the first legislative council was set up for the area. In 1946 the legislative council had .an African, ma.iority for the first time, and represented Ashanti as well.

Wholly African

In 1949 a wholly African committee, representing all sections of public opinion and under the chairmanship of an African judge, Mr. Justice < now Sir Henley) Coussey, was given the task of working out a new constitution.

The 1951 legislature, by in- cluding representatives of the Northern Territories and of rrans-Volta Togoland, repre- sented all the peoples of the Gold Coast.

The present constitution wa.s Introduced in 1954. It follows the British parliamentary mo- del, except that it provides for only a single chamber.
