We are all reminded on Armistice
Day of the ending of first World War
with all of its destruction and sorrow
it brought about to the people of the
world. Now when the good news of'
its ending by the blowing of the \
whistles many hoped that never again j
would we have to go war again and
shed our precious blood on the battle
fields. The people prayed and thanked
Almighty God who doth all things
well that peace had come at last to
the world.
This peace was stirred from its
slumber by the rumbling of guns,
planes, etc., of World War II leaving
in its wake one of the most devasting
wars of our time.
It is earnestly hoped by peace
loving peoples of the World that after
this terrible lesson learned from World
War II that we wouldn’t have to wit
ness another war, and that the people
on Armistice Day will be reminded of.
the price we pay for such wars.

New York—Pledging “fullest sup
port” of the recommendations of the
President’s Committee on Civil Rights,
Thurgood Marshall, chief counsel for
the NAACP, called for all groups in
terested in first-class citizenship for
all Americans to redouble their efforts
to bring the Committee’s proposals in
to reality.
Marshall said the NAACP was
“naturally gratified” by the report of
the Committee since the suggestion
that such a committee be appointed
was made to President Truman at a
conference in the White House Sep
tember 19, 1946, by a committee of
citizens assembled by the NAACP
following the Columbia, Tenn., dis
turbance and the Monroe, Ga., lynch
ings of last year. The Marshall state
'“The Report of the President’s
Committee on Civil Rights will go
down in history as one of the most
important documents yet produced in
this field. The erport is not only a
carefully documented indictment of
our present system of dual citizenship
in this country, but it creates for itself
an unique position in governmental
reports by pointing out not only a gen
eral solution to the problem, but de- i
tailed steps to be taken to bring about
this end. When it is fully realized that
this is an official report by a constitu
tional commission with all of the au
thority of such a commission, its ef
fectiveness can be fully realized.
The carefully documented mate
rials of the conditions in the country
today are not new to minority groups
and indeed they have been made
known to many Americans. However,
these conditions have never been
brought home to all Americans in such
a clear-cut fashion as in this report
which has been given the fullest pub
licity through all media. The problem
of the Negro and other minority
groups is now before the public in a
manner never equaled before.
“The program of action combines
the major portions of the programs of
action of all groups fighting for full
citizenship rights for all Americans. It
forms a common ground upon which
all such groups can work. It pre
sents a minimum program for legisla
tive and executive departments of the
United States and the several states.
It prsents a prograjn around which all
forces can unite in bringing forth a
new Bill of Rights, a new Magno
Charta, or a new type of phrase for a
body of laws, regulations, and execu
tive enforcement to make the Declara
tion of Independence and our Con-'
stitution mean what they say.
“The report gives the program of
many so-called ‘liberals’ and calls for
action now. So that now there is no
longer any reasonable pretext *for fol
lowing the traditional stumbling block
embodied in the phrase, ‘the time is
not ripe.’ There is no longer any
need for tolerating or permitting seg
regation any place in the United
States. The NAACP will support this
report to the fullest as will all of its
branches and members. It is necessary
that all Negroes and others interested
in full citizenship for all American
'citizens band together and redouble
their efforts to bring about the enact
ment of the legislative program pro
posed as well as require the executive
action proposed.
“The full significance of the need
for the enactment of the program of
the President’s Committee is obvious
when we realize that this carefully
documented report of admittedly ‘un
American activities’ within our coun
try and the carefully-worked-out pro
gram were prepared in a period of
eleven months. This should be com
pared with the demonstratio nof the
interest of the United States Congress
in ‘un-American activities’ by its Com
mittee on Un-American Activities, (
which has been operating for years
and years and has reached the point
I of confining all of its time to an al
leged investigation of the beliefs of
some Americans and some writers and
directors in Hollywood.
“If the President’s Committee’s re
port is to mean anything, there must
be the fullest cooperation of all Ameri
cans to reform congressional proce
jdure in order to require Congress to

AMONG ALL THE postwar na- 1
lions, no countries have so quick
ly restored their productivity/
without damage to standards of
Eying as have Canada and the
nited' States. These two coun
tries have restored productivity
to the 1940-41 level, and in many
Industries have surpassed this
level. It is no coincidence that a
fecent New York Timet 22-nation
survey showed that except in
Canada and the United States,
the trend is toward government
management of industry.
Countries that are exchanging
their freedoms for government
controls are not making good
postwar records. In general, they
are the countries that are crying
loudest for help from outside.
Those nations which desire to
turn everything over to the gov
ernment for complete control
and management are the very
countries that are slipping back
ward. Still, the trend is toward
government management of in
Decides timately follow this
trend? In my opinion,
the public in this country has not
yet decided that issue. There are
some voices crying loudly for
i government management. Even
, sur Attorney General points his
finger at American industry and
I accuses it of being responsible
for high prices. Political maneu
vers may please critical people
and get votes, but in making in
dustry unpopular the way is'
paved for replacing our free en
terprise system.
As an educator, I favor that
system which will provide the
highest standards of living for
the masses of the American peo
ple. If gbvernment management
of our industries would provide
higher wages, more productivity
and greater purchasing power foi
each dollar spent, then certainlj
I would be in favor of it. Actual
ly, our system of private enter
prise has put America far ahead
of other nations that have tried
anything else.
Act With THERE ARE other
Wisdom dividends offered by
the American way. We
have freedoms. We can work at
what we please, where we choose.
We can speak our minds, as
semble in groups as we care to.
These freedoms and other liber
ties we did not have under the
control of despotic and dictatorial
governments in previous centu
ries. Why ever, should we want
to follow a trend that leads us
backward toward new despotism
and loss of personal freedoms?
The experience of England
should make us pause and think
seriously. Those freedom-loving
people have not found govern
ment management an asset. Their
coal production has been extreme
ly disappointing under govern
ment management. Rationing has
become more and more severe.
Burdens of the people have be
come more and more heavy. To
day, the very future of England
is threatened by strict govern
ment regulation and management
of industry.
'• In this dark hour, Englishmen
should study their own history.
They will find that whenever
their individual freedoms were
greatest, it was then their pros
perity was the most genuine. If
we in America think soberly and
act in our best interests, we will
act with wisdom to preserve the
fundamental patterns of our
economy: the right of private
ownership of property and the
freest possible exercise of private
management of our entire econ
