On Wednesday morning, the

was flung about the courts. Any

gauntlet were searched before
they could enter. The prisoners
were marched in, staggering and

The Courts and Rights
of Negroes to Vote
(NOTE: The following article
on the Supreme Court Decision on
the Texas Primaries was contribut
ed by a young white Southern writ
er, a native of Texas.)
Austin, Tex.—(CNA)—If you are
black, you cannot vote in a Demo
cratic primary! This is what the
Southern planters and politicians have
'always said. This is what the United
! States Supreme Court has just said
in its decision upholding the Jim Crow
^procedure of the Texas Democratic
Party. Surely in one corner of the
bed we have the white-robed knights
of the ku klux klan; and in the other,
the black-gowned justices of the Su
j The exclusion of Negroes from the
primaries has meant the virtual dis
franchisement of the entire race. The
Dcmocatic party exercises a political
monopoly in the South, and its nomi
nees are almost invariably elected.
These nominees are selected by white
voters only, with the result that a
Ngro citizen has no right to say who
shall make his laws, assess his taxes,
or govern his schools.
The Negroe of Texas have become
increasingly resentful toward this
high-handed discrimination against
them. A few counties have allowed
Negroes the right to participate in
the primaries, but only when their
votes were needed td keep some polit
ical machine running.
In certain counties where the Ne
gro voters have demanded the right
of participation the ku klux klan has
been called out to enforce the wishes
of the local election officials.
Court Leaves Loophole
Tho state legislature attempted in
1925 to bulldoze the Negroes by pass
ing a law forbidding them the right
of participation in Democratic primary
elections. The Supreme Court de
clared this law unconstitutional, but
left a loophole for the politicians by
declaring that the Legislature could
not bar Negroes through statuatory
How quickly these politicians in
cluding James V. Allred, the present
Governor, jumped through this loop
hole! The state party convention of
1930 adopted a resolution opening the
primaries only to persons of white
Two years later, another state con
vention proceeded to restrict party
membership to whites only. The hy
pocrisy of these resolutions is shown
by the fact that there is no set form
for becoming a member of the Demo
cratic party. Any white person may
vote in the Democratic primaries of
the South, even though he may be a
convinced Republican or Socialist at
heart. But a Negro who may be a
convinced Democrat is automatically
barred from participating in the af
fairs of that political group.
Last year, the Negro issue again
came up to embarrass the aspiring
politicians who were stumping the
state. Allred, then attorney-general
and a candidate for' governor, saw a
golden opportunity to get the votes
of prejudiced white people. In his
capacity as attorney general, he ruled
that the resolutions of the two con
ventions did not conflict with any pre
vious ruling of the Supreme Court.
During the campaign, he proceeded to
play the race issue for all that it was
“Stand back, you niggers,” he yelled
at one political rally, “and let white
Democrats hear what their next Gov
ernor has to say.”
R. L. Grovey, 44-year old Negro
voter of Harris county, decided last
year to bring Jim-Crow into court.
When he was refused a ballot by Al

bert Townsend, county clerk, Grovey
sued for $10 damages, asserting that
he was qualified by law to become a
member of the Democratic party and
vote in its primaries.
The lower court decided the case
against Grovey, but the United States
Supreme Court agreed to review it.
And this is the gist of the Supreme
Court decision, written by Justice
“We hold the party was a voluntary
association and was competent to de
cide its own membership.”
Fourteenth Amendment Buried
Thus the Fourteenth amendment is
finally buried under a mass of legal
rubbish. The lesson for the Negro
masses shoul dbe plain. There is no
hope for them either in the capitalist
courts or in the capitalist political par
ties . The Republican party did noth
ing for the Negro except to transfer
him from a chattel slavery to wage
slavery. The Democratic party has
been the conscious instrument of the
lynching planters. Now the sup
posedly non-partisan Supreme Court
gives the Negro a kick and tells him
to “stay in his place”!
This is our answer to the nine old
judges and the vicious exploiters for
whom they speak: That the Negro
people of America will make their own
place, through the unceasing struggle
against oppression. That struggle
will be remembered when the decisions
of the Supreme Court are but dusty
rlics for curious students.

Once upon a time I was unal

of heart, bnt rather an admission
that I hadn’t analyzed the situation ■
quite far enough. It was a school,
principal, a good friend of mine,
who pointed out the weak spot. As i
a matter of fact this principal
would oppose the old idea of home
work as readily as I do. I know
that is true because she is opposed
to home work as a substitute for
school work. We both agree that
evening work at home shouldn’t be
so many hours tacked onto the
But she pointed out to me this
philosophy: Children like to be ac
tive. But if the home isn’t inter-.
esting, if there isn’t family unity j
for an evening of games and music,'
if parents turn to their own desires, J
what becomes of the children and J
this irresistible urge to do some- *
thing? Many, of course, beg to go)
out after supper. Older children)
easily acquire the “corner” habit, j
They seek excitement and adven- J
ture. Or they must have the ;
movies. That is enough to call to j
mind the well known problem.
If the home isn’t interesting,
more so than the movie or the gang,
can’t the school provide something? ;
And there’s the answer. Interest- ■
ing books to be read; art posters to !
be sketched; collections to put in
order; science questions to answer;}
and things to make. The list can J
be long. It gives the child some- !
thing worth while to do. It uses j
energy; it takes those troublesome .
hours. And there is educational ■
value. It’s a new type of home
work and in many instances de- ■
cidedly worth while.
What may we substitute today .
for the rugged life of our ances
tors? Dr. Ireland will answer *
next week. r
