Abstract:
Washington, Oct. 16--After conference with President--Negro leader Martin Luther King talks to newsmen outside the White House late today after a conference with President Kennedy.

He also said he had presented to the President a proposal for an executive order to declare all segregation unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment.
