It is one thing to desegregate our school systems, and yet another to
insure quality in the education we provide our children.

It is one thing to establish equal employment opportunities, and
yet another to provide applicants with the skills and knowledge to
perform and advance in such jobs.

It is one thing to provide for housing, and yet another to plan a
neighborhood environment where people can live instead of merely
being sheltered.

The mandate for the Advisory Committee on Human Rights is
therefore flexible and broad in scope. As such, it can be imaginative
and inventive.

Before organizing this committee, I consulted with the President of
the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Delegates and I obtained
their cooperation and support. Included on the committee will be four
members of each house who were recommended by the presiding
officers. I also have asked five other persons to serve, including the
chairman of the State Commission on Interracial Problems and Rela-
tions, Mr. William C. Rogers, Sr., and four members from the general

The legislative members will be:

Senator Thomas M. Anderson, Jr., R-Montgomery
Senator James Clark, Jr., D-Howard-Montgomery
Senator Verda Welcome, D-Baltimore City 4th District
Senator John J. Bishop, Jr., R-Baltimore County
Delegate Aris T. Allen, R-Anne Arundel
Delegate William J. Goodman, D-Prince George's
Delegate Martin A. Kircher, D-Baltimore City 3rd District
Delegate Joseph J. Schirano, D-Baltimore County

Members from the general public will be:

Mrs. Mayme Oberfeld of Baltimore City
Mr. William Adkins, II, of Easton
Mrs. Edna Over Campbell of Baltimore City
Mr. Earl Roger, Sr., of Baltimore City

I plan to meet with members of this committee at an early date after
my inauguration to discuss this assignment with them, and I will
designate a chairman of the committee at that time.
