THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 19, 1964  The front page has a four column-wide photo with a headline "16 Rabbis Arrested as Pool Dive-In Sets Off St. Augustine Rights Clash" with a caption "Policeman dives into pool at the Monson Motor Lodge in St. Augustine, Fla., to arrest the civil rights demonstrators". This is in response to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. writing a letter from the jail asking for assistance from the rabbis for all the civil rights unrest that was occurring due to not following the segregation laws. This was the largest arrest of rabbis in America. Coverage continues inside the issue.
Also on the front page is a column-wide headline "Civil Rights Bill Due To Be Passed By Senate Today" with subheads "Action to Come One Year to the Day After Kennedy's Request to Congress" "House Approval Seen" "Southerners Deliver Final Attacks - Northerners Say Measure Is Overdue". Coverage continues inside the issue.
The front page also has "Goldwater Says He'll Vote 'No' on the Rights Measure" with subhead "After Visiting Eisenhower to Explain His Stand, Arizonan Tells Senate in Speech Parts of Bill Are Unconstitutional". The text Barry Goldwater's speech is on page 18.
