HLU Members Support Anti-Bias Legislation
Richard T. Gill '48, chairman of the political action committee of the H.L.U., marshaled Liberal Union forces yesterday in order to obtain 200 signatures in favor of the Fair Employment Practices Act, from residents of wards 9; 10, and 11 in North Cambridge.
Kay Muller of Radcliffe will present the signatures today at a meeting of the Fair Employment Practices Act hearing committee to Representative O'Neal of wards 9, 10, and 11, who claims to have heard nothing about the bill from his constituency.
The Massachusetts F.E.P.C. bill, like that of New York, would lay penalties on employers who discriminate against workers because of race, color, or creed. Liberal forces throughout the nation are working to pass such laws in every state.
