Rights of Negro Citizens
Mirror of World Opinion
It is imperative now that responsible citizens irrespective of
color or creed, talk sense about race problems in their communities
and state. In resolving this crisis over public schools it is vital to the
honor, peace and progress of the state that there be mutual respect,
goodwill and intelligent cooperation between our white and colored
In the promotion of these objectives it is up to the white people
to lead the way because the advantages of economic and political
power are on their side.
Their first move should be to do everything they can to banish
forever what is left of cruel and absurd notion that there could
possibly be any stigma attached to any human being because of race,
color or other physical characteristics. The Creator never stigmatizes
The next step our white people should take to help create a j
wholesome climate for tolerance, justice and interracial cooperation
is to try to convince everybody, especially themselves, that in demo
cratic America no citizen's rights are meted out on a basis of color,
creed, occupation, education, intelligence, wealth or social position.
Human dignity, freedom, justice and qivil rights are indivisble—all
our citizens must Hive them equally or nWsfe ‘can ever be secure ill
All our people, colored and white, need also to understand the vast
difference between civil-legal rights and personal-social privileges.
In the latter field discrimination is not a bad word nor an evil prac
tice. In our personal affairs and social relationships we all discrim
inate and, indeed, must do so to get along.
In these relationships background, color of skin and other
factors can and frequently do make practical differences which must
be considered. Recognition of such differences does not reflect onj
anybody. Difference is not stigma, not sin. It is natural and neces-1
sary, A free society is full of differences and benefits enormously'
It is violently contradictory in a free nation for anyone to insist
that “white supremacy,” or any other sort of racial “supremacy,” be
supported by law. The only supremacy that can properly be a part
of our government is the supremacy of individual freedom, justice,
fair and equal treatment under law. Interracial conferences on seg
regation problems that do not start from that basis can accomplish
no lasting good.
History and our own experiences teaeh us that attempts to force
the mixing of the races in some areas of life, ignoring the customs
and preferences of the people involved, are not only unrealistic but
dangerous. Progress in these fields must come slowly and naturally
by mutual acceptance or the great gains already achieved could suffer
a severe setback or be lost altogether.
For instance, the largest public swimming pool in the Asheville
area has just been abandoned and our Municipal Golf Course seems
to be on the way out because leaders of our white and colored citizens
failed to face up to realities and agree on a voluntary arrangement
whereby both o£ these splendid facilities could continue to serve this
community_It could be decades, even generations, before the ..war
ed people of most communities could afford their own private recrea- j
By sensible cooperation on a fair and equal voluntary basis our
white and colored citizens can “have their cake and eat it too” in pub
lic school, public recreation, in tbctr churches and in many other
Because our Negro citizens are a minority group with relatively
little political or economic power they would be severely penalized
in the “private enterprises” developments in all the fields under dis
Our white citizens have delayed much too long in sharing policy
making responsibilities in civic, educational and governmental affairs
with colored feiiow citizens. For instance, the case for public school
segregation is greatly weakened without proper Negro representation
on school boards and commissions.
The best insurance for a segregated public school system, volun
tarily maintained, would be integration on the official level, giving
Negroes a proportionate voice in the operation of separate schools,
which most of them, as sincerely as the whites, genuinely desire.
Furthermore, there should be a proper ratio of Negro representation
on the official level in other governmental agencies, local and state.
We appeal to our Negro citizens to cooperate in voluntary segre
gation in the areas mentioned here not only to promote general peace
and progress in North Carolina but for their own sake. It must be
obvious to them that if undue pressure is applied to force racial inte
gration in these sensitive fields in the months and years just ahead
enormous damage could and would be done tc our public service
institutions and facilities as well as to existing friendly relations be
tween our white and colored races.
Should disasters take place in thic connection all informed people
surely must realize which race would suffer most grievously. The
Negro race has been handicapped far too much already. Our colored
and white citizens owe it to themselves and to each other to cooperate
intelligently in peaceful and constructive evolution rather than to al
low their current racial difficulties to precipitate chaos and revolu
tion.—Asheville (N.C.) Times *
News From Around Nebraska
Fire is becoming the big worry throughout the rural areas of
northeastern Nebraska as dry weather, which has grown steadily
worse for the past sixty days, continues.
Near Wynot, Nebraska (near Hartington) firemen were called
to fight a blaze in some grasslands last week. Two departments
fought the blaze which spread over 200 acres before it was ex
tinguished. Some hay stacks, some timber land and pastures were
consumed by the blaze.
Another fire in the Hartington area destroyed some hay land
and hay stacks when an electric fence started a fire in some weeds
which touched the wire.
A third fire was started by a tractor which was hauling a
toad of corn to a crib. The steel crib, in which the corn was be
ing placed, had to be cut open to get at the blaze.
WATERBURY, Connecticut —
ANP A white divorcee lost her
son last week because she mar
ried a Negro.
This followed the marriage of
Mrs. Dorothy Murphy to Dr. Wen
.tell Urling, prominent Negro
dentist here. Since then, the
couple have been involved In a
swirl of court action as to the
custody of Mrs. Murphy’s eid»t
year old son, Edward Murphy,
After his parents were divorced,
Edwards’s custody was granted
to Mrs. Urling while his sister,
Patricia, 12, was awarded to the
father, a brass factory foreman.
Taking the case intr court,
Murphy asked custody of the boy
after Mrs. U'ling remarried. He
was granted his request
Mrs. Urling took the case to the
Supreme Court of Errors, highest
appeal tribunal in Connecticut,
claiming that Judge Roberts had
ruled against her in the case just
because she had married a Negro.
Last Monday, however, the
nine-member court unanimously
upheld Judge Robert’s ruling.
The opinion, written by Associ
ate Justice Wynne, said that Mur
phy already had custody of Pa
tricia and that the sister and
brother would be happier to
The court also said that because
of her divorce, Mrs. Urling wa^
excommunicated from the Catho
lie Church and had made no
provision for the religious edu
cation for her son.
In addition to this, the opinion
.-aid that Mrs. Urling, by her mar
riage to a Negro, had alienated
herself from her parents and de
jttived her son pf the “care and
pood influence of grandparents."
Dr. Urling said that he and his
wife would discuss with their at
torneys the possibility of further
appeals. He added:
“They're quite wrong about
his religious training.
"He has been going to church
and has made his first Commun
ion. And he has been going to
public school only becauso paro
chial school has not been comple

At Ogallala a Union Pacific freight train pulled through an
area where weeds were being burned along the track and some
sparks got into a load of lumber. By the time the blaze was dis
covered one whole end of the car was ablaze. The train crew
wired ahead for help and pulled the fire to the Ogallala firemen
who were waiting in the freight yards. The load of lumber had
to be removed to completely extinguish the blaze. Trainmen said
the spark was apparently picked up near Julesburg, Colorado.
At Atkinson a tractor and eleven stacks of hay were burned
when a spark from the tractor started the blaze. One of the
stacks was being hauled to the feedlots of the ranch when it
started to burn. Before the blaze was out the entire hay meadow
and 11 stacks were gone.
Atkinson had another fire started by a diesel train locomotive
which shot oat a spark into some weeds along the tracks.
