    Printed on verso: Discuss Civil Rights Legislation -- U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy (right) discusses provisions of the proposed Civil Rights Act of 1963 with Senator Warren Magnuson, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, at the Capitol in Washington, July 1. Mr. Kennedy appeared before the Committee to urge enactment of the legislation, which would outlaw racial discrimination in public accommodations such as restaurants, hotels, stores, theaters, and other business places. He also testified at the start of hearings before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee on the Administration's omnibus civil rights bill, which includes the public accommodations provision, broader authority for the Justice Department in filing court cases to speed up school desegregation, and authority to cut off federal funds from any program in which racial discrimination occurs.
