spiritual filled congregation. He
used as text 16 chapter 24th verse

the day was as follows: "there
is a corresponding amount of

expects to walk with God, it cost
a man something to stand by the

By W. A. Davis, M. D.
MACON, Ga. — A young boy
came running into my office the
other day in a very frightened
state. His hand was bleeding and
he told me in an anxious voice
that he had been bitten by a “mad
I immediately washed out the
wound thoroughly with soap and
water and then bandaged it. Mean
while, I tried to calm and reassure
my young patient and get him to
tell me about the accident. I told
h imthat, even if the dog were
‘ mad’’ and he had caught rabies,
I could give him medical treat
ment and he would not die. I was
glad he had come to my office
He had been riding his bicycle
down the street and had accident,
aily bumped into the dog, runn.
ing over its paw. The dog chased
him along the sidewalk and bit
his hand when he waved his arm
to try to frighten the dog away.
He said with a touch of chagrin,
“This is the first time a dog ever
bit me. I Jike dogs.’’ Thep he look,
ed worried again and said, “But
I’m going to tell my father and
have him find that dog and shoot
him. Whw, suppose I do get rabies
He looked at me in fright.
I explained to him he would
not get rabies unless the dqg was
mad—and that all dogs that bite
are not mad. However, since a
mad dog hod been found in the j
neighborhood recently I though it]
best to take no chance. So I told
the boy I would give him certain
inoculations to protect him in case
the dog did have rabies.
The boy agreed to this and I
gave him an inoculation, telling
him to come back in a few days
for another one, as the inocula
tions are given in a series.
If a dog really does have rabies
and the inoculations are not start
ed immediately after the bite, the
germs will travel from the place
where the person is bitten to the
spinal cord and to the brain, lead
ing to death. This may take sever
al weeks. If the bite is on the bite
is on the face or neck, the germs
travel to the brain more quickly
than they do when the bite is
elsewhere on the body.
My young patient still wanted
his father to find the dog and
shoot it. I suggested that instead
of doing this he ask his father
to call the dog catcher. After all,
we wouldn’t want his father to
takg the chance of being bitten,
too,especially if it turned out that
the dog really was mad.
I told the boy the dog catcher
would shut the dog Up in a place
where he could not get out and
bite anyone else. Hg would keep
the dog under observation for two
weeks at least. If the dog dW have
rabies, he would die during that
As it turned out, the dog was
yhot mad find v^aa [released, I
could stop giving the inoculations
to my young patient who, how
ever, agreed with me that wfi did
t the best thing when we started
the inoculations, as we were
Anyong who is bitten by any
dog should go to the doctor lm
meaditely. He should also tell the
city authorities about the dog s®
they can search for it and when
they find him keep him under ob
servation until they can deter.
mine whether the dog has rabies.

By flljmdfife Alicfe Rich
There are many people in this
country of good intentions, whq^e
hearts are in the right places
They honestly believe Jfriat the
United States means something
Sometime ago the American prte*
made a successful job in working
up rightious indignation againsl
the Batasm Death March, the hor
rors of the German prison camps
etc, but it looks like they very
much overlooked the same prhc
ticea right here under the Stars
ami Stripes, and the America*
government doesn’t seem to t*
abl« to do anything about it.
Borne years ago William Q
Summer wrote—"It would be 9
disgrace to us if amongst us men
should burn a rattlesnake or a
mad dog. Thte badness of the vie.
tlm Is not bad enough, but be
cause we are too good-It is
evident, however that the public
opinion is not educated up to this
Publio opinten on burnings and
lynchings is ot yet educated np
to the level where such barbari
ties are impossibble. The number
of ipictlms each year has decreas
ed, ttart the savagery with which
the smaller number of victims are
tortured by American mobs is
greater than that at the turn ,pf
th^ century. This may be attribift
ed paftly to the effort of the war
the lust for blood and cruelty. On
the other hand it is safe to as
sume that had not the war oc
cured, there would have been
some increase in torture of lynch
Lynching in the United States
was first directed- against the
whites not Negroes. As late as
1885, more whites than Negroes
were lynched—110 whites and S6
Negroes, in 1884, three times
times as many whites as Negroes
were lynched, or 160 whites and
51 Negroes. By 1890. seven times
as many Negroes as whites were
lynched during slavery. Masters
protected their property and lyn
chers were severely punished.
The lynch orgy which has been
the bane of American civilization
established a higher record in
1946 than in the previous five
years. The state of Georgia led
the roster with four lynchings to
its discredit, during July and Au.
gust 1946. The total nifcnber
amounted to six. The timely in
tervention of officers of the law
and interested persons snatched
away from the mob 22 intended
In the last 50 years there havte
been almost 4,000 lynchings in the
United States. Mast of the occur
ed in the South.
The need not be a sentiment,
alist to feel that such warping of
the minds of the children is by
far the worst aspect of lynching.
In a community where lynching
occurs there are thousands of
spectators—including women and
children, the effect upon the
young minds are almost appaWng
to be contemplated. In thg unoon
scious of these immature minds
are thus sown the seeds of lynch
ing .Primitive impulses to vegea
ance of violent character upon
those whom the possessors of such
minds do like are thus nourished
and form one step to further mob
According to the moral law
those who actively participate in
a lynching are guilty of sin, that
is those that concur in and con
sent to the lynching in any way
by, ‘ commanding, persuading, en.
couraging, or inciting the lynch,
ora to commit the crime. That is
sheriffs, poliesmen, or anyone,
who deliberately or thsough orim
inal neglect fall to protect the
lives of Negroes, must bare fall
responsibility yto JGod for mob
action against their charges.
The lynch mob degrades not
only itself and Its community, but
it also degrades all Americans.
Booker T. Washington wisely said
“You cannot hold the Negro in
the gutter unless thg white man
stays in the gutter to hold him
j Lynching is but one phase in
: the American pattern of race dis
! crimination, Just another aspect
i of a general policy of subjugating
the Negro, of denying him his
basic natural rights.
The European newspapers tell
of our lynchings on their front
pages. The lynchings have forced
the British newspapers to break
their' silence and voice openly
their disgust they feel toward our
lynchings. Britishers consider it
one of the greatest blotches on
American so-called democracy.
Every instance of lynchings or
mob violence gets hannerllned
front page play in the daily and
weekly newspapers in Europe.
"Is the United States a Civilized
Country?" asks the London Dai
ly paper. "Trial by fury remains
