By William Worthy, Jr.
Member of Recsnt Interracial Test
Group on Southern Busses
A striking feature which crop
ped up time and again in April
when a dozen white and Negro
men tested jim crow on southern
transportation for two continu
ous weeks was the willingness of
whitewomen passengers to stand
up and be counted on the issue of
racial justice.
Any one who has read a 1928
pamphlet on inter-marriage by
George S Schuyler will not be too
surprised by this phenomen since
even atthat time Mr. Schuyler
was able to point to a far less
vehement opposition to mixed
marriages by white women than
by their male counterparts. The
two groups which have tradition
ally shown the strongest resist
ance to intermarriage have been
white men and Negro women.
This less prejudiced attitude on
the part of white women seems j
to be reflected in other spheres of '
racial contact. In my own case— ‘
on a Greyhound bus traveling
from Knoxville to Louisville—a
white woman passenger from the
Tennessee hills, who was a com
plete stranger to our test group,
left the bus and vehemently ar
gued with the station manager in
behalf of my right to sit any
where. Her spontaneously inter
vention on the side of justice was
probably the decisive factor, for in
ten or fifteen minutes the bus re
sumed its trip and I was neither
evicted nor arrested.
This aspect of the trip, which
was jointly sponsored by the Con
gress of Racial Equality and the
Fellowship of Reconciliation, was
not of course the most significant.
Other participants will write in
subsequent articles in this space
about other phases. There were
soldiers and sailors who paid no
attention to our inter-racial group
or even appeared sympathetic.
Other men in uniform were overt-1
ly hostile, and in one case a sol
dier reported to the bus driver
that a “n-r was sitting up
front.” Certain drivers were pol
ite, and in routine “don’t care”
fashion went through the famil
iar song and dance about ‘‘com
pany regulations” and state jim
crow laws. f'Tm not working for
the U- S. Supreme Court,” one dri
ver remarked in reference to the
Morgan decision.)
But on the other hand some
‘‘red neck” drivers seemed pos
sessed of a burining personal de
sire to maintain segregation. On
a train test from Nashville to
Louisville two members of our
group sitting in the “white” coach
were told by the conductor that if
they had been in Alabama, he
would have thrown them through
the window.
From one day to the next—from
one hour to the next—we never
knew what to expect. Out of all
the uncertainty and fuzzy racial
lines, however, one conclusion was
irrefutable: the average white pas
senger is relatively indifferent to •
seatoing arrangements on busses
and trains, and only the railoads,
bur companies and public officials
seem determined to prolong jim
crow travel. When no popular de
mand existsfor a hoary custom,
it is obvious that the rigid pattern
of Southern race relations is com
ing apart at the seams.

Christian Hall of Fame- Abraham
wrote his name in the Hall of

the Hall of Fame. He pleased God

Story of Africa
Africa 1947, is a different con
tinent from the “dark" one so
indelibly imrpessed upon the minds
of the majority of the people in
our country. There are still many
dark places, it' is true, and there
are still the sequestered forests,
villages and the jungles and the
deserts- But there is today an
Africa awake and alert to what
is going on in the world, and Afri
cans eager to have a part in those
Throuhout Africa the cry is un
animous: they want, “education
and industry.” It is the voice of
:he people, from the village to the
city ,from the ignorant to the edu
cated, from the poor to the rich,
from the worker to the ruler. It
.s one and the same determination
to build a new continent in
‘Brightest Africa.” Some people
still call Africa the dark or un
known. The names of a few mis
sionaries, merchants or explorers,
the secret unhappy consciousness
of the evil slave traffic; that is all
most of us know of Africa, in fact
all that many of us wanted to
know. The desire to communicate
now comes out of Africa. Not one
voice but many must speak.
Africa has many returning vet
erans who have seen the mechan
ized and mental skill of men who
are products of our colleges and
universities. They now want to
see their country go forward and
We are only just beginning to
realize that Africa is a huge place.
It is not a country, it is the sec
ond largest continent in the world,
whose area is twelve million
square miles- It is not a land of
savages. Neither i it a land of
Everywhere is mystery. Force
your way through the forest think
ing you will find some solution,
and the jungle closes after you
pass, and now the mystery lies
behind you, as well a before. You
are swallowed up in it. This tro
pical world teems with life, but to
you it seems unpeopled: You can
follow the windings of an Afri
can trail from dawn until dark
and never see a living creature.
They peer at you through a wall
of green; alert and motionless, but
never a glimpse do you see of
them. They evade you. The very
birds that seem to call to you in
the distance .will not await your
coming. They fly afar, bearing
on the wings of mystery that you
seek. Nature holds her breath as
you pass and the land is mute.
As evening draw in and the
swift night falls you may hear,
the slow, measured, mysterious
throb of a drum- These barbaric
drum beats, relayed from town to
town in a strange language which
no white man has ever read. They
can, in a few hours bear a mess
age across Africa. Or it may be
the long, moaning note of a horn,
like the wraith of a sound, com
ing from nowhere, and filling all
the distances with its sobbing
melody. But you will never see
the hand that smites the drum, nor
him who winds the horn.
But the mystery of Africa is
not unfriendly, nor is its silence
forbidding or sinister. Rather it is
inviting, alluring. It beckons you
on. Surely at the end of that
jungle corridor it will wait for
you. Around the next bend in the
trail it will stand with smiling
greetings. And so men have been
lured on and on. No man who has
fallen under the spell of its peo
ples can ever be but an alien and
a stranger in any other part of
the world. There have been many
business people and writers who
went to Africa and now they are
building their homes there- I have
heard and read if you ever go to
Africa one time you always want
to go back.
There have been many outstand
ing people who have contributed
much of their time and devoted
their lives toward the advance
ment of Africa, one of them is

tor and biographer of the vanish

assembled in the African and
Roosevelt Halls of the American
Museum, in bronzes, in great

senting his unerring portrayal of
the character of the animal and
his sympathetic admiration of
their finest qualities. He has come
very close to death on three oc
casions in making close observa
It think he seems to favor the
elephant, more than any of the
other animal. He spent many
months studying all about the
African elephont. He studied about
them on the plains, in the forests,
in the bamboo, and upon the
mountains. He watched them in
herds and singly, studied their
paths, their feeding groups and
everything about them. He says
they are the most fascinating of
all the animals on this earth
One of the experiences I enjoy
ed reading was the way he de
scribed some of the characteristics
of the elephants.
One night he heard the squeal
of an elephant, then more and
more squeals, and occasional
trumpeting. It was a continuous
roar and suggested a tremendaus
herd. There is little danger of
elephants attacking a camp and
there is no way to study them at
night, so Mr. Ackley went to bed.
He got up early the next morn
ing. The elephants had moved to
the edge of the forest. There were
at least seven hundred. He wnt
upon a rock and watchd them as
they were drifting in. The sun was
was coming up. The monkeys
greeted one another, everything
was waking up. There was not a
breath of air- All the forest was
awake and moving about. There
was a continuous roar of noise,
but above it all was the crashing
of trees as the elephants moved
into the forest at leat a mile wide.
I think that must have been a
wonderful sight to see.
Then an elephant detected his
wind and wheeling about let out
a scream. Instantly every sound
ceased. Everything was quiet. The
monkeys, the birds—all of the wild
life stopped their racket. The ele
phants stood still and listened.
Then soon he heard the rustling
of the trees as though a great
storm were coming. It gradually
died away, and he realized the
elephants had made it as they
moved away. rOdinarily if there
is any moisture elephonts can
travel without making any noise.
Inspite of their great bulk they
are as silent and sometimes as
hard to see a a jack rabbit is- He
said one time he so close to an
elephant he could hear the rum
bling in her stomach, but as soon
as she realized his presence the
rumbling ceased.
