Apepasement of violence invites violence. That is what Governor
Faubus did. He sowed the wind and Arkansas reaped the whirlwind.
He put force behind a defiance of law and the challenge has been
answered by superior force. This is learning the hard way, the way
most Americans would have preferred to avoid.
President Eisenhower sought to avoid it. But, as Adlai Stevenson
rightly and promptly said, he "had no choice. The combination of
lawless violence and the Governor’s irresponsible behavior has created
a crisis which Arkansas is powerless to meet.” And as the President
pointed out in his TV message to the nation, the mobs in Little Rock
gave no heed to his “cease and desist” proclamation and for the
second day local police had failed to disperse them.
It should be noted that Mr. Eisenhower did not *«m! fedml
troops into Little Rock to impose his will. The school integration
plan thwarted first by the Governor and second by mobs was one
proposed by the local school board and authorized by the federal
district court. Also, as he explained, federal forces are not taking
over the local authorities’ responsibilities to keep order; they are there
to insure that orders of the courts are executed.
Let no one mistake. This was a hard and momentous, but necessary
choice. It raises constitutional issues which tend to unite all Southern
ers and to divide some Northerners. But before alarm becomes hysteria i
it should be noted that this does not presage invasion of the Deep
South by federal armies. The courts have proceeded cautiously in
applying desegregation. They have shown no disposition to order
school integration in areas where there was not evidence of a good
measure of popular consent.
There was this evidence in Little Rock—which was only following,
and following under a gradual plan, other Arkansas cities that have
integrated. Most Little Rock folk preferred unmixed schools but
townspeople and students appeared to be reluctantly accepting the
desegregation plan. Then the curious action of the Governor in using
state power not to uphold the law but to thwart it gave encouragement
to mob rule. Now the good people of Little Rock are having to make
their own hard but necessary choice. As between segregation b>
mob dictate and desgregation under law there should be no uncertainty.
That is the choice for all those elsewhere who had begun to be
tempted by the claim that a little “harmless club-swinging” could
defeat desegregation. Once it was made to appear that violence could
determine policy and mobs could make the law, the lawless minority
in Little Rock would have had a hundred imitators. And mob rule
would not have been limited to this issue. |
That was the prospect which impelled the President’s necessary
choice. That is the danger that now demands a similar necessary
decision from the people of the United States. For, as he said, respect
for law “is the foundation of the American way of life." When the
choice is narrowed down to one between the courts and the mobs the
answer must be clear and positive.
The people of Nashville—where there was also reluctance about
mixed schools—had to make their choice two weeks ago. They decided,
firmly and effectively, that violence, even bombing, would not deter
mine what they should do about their schools. Public opinion crystal
lized, officials cracked down on violence and inciters of violence. They
proceeded quietly to carry out the law. .
Whatever a citizen’s convictions about segregation, the way of
law and reason, the American way of settling issues, lies open. More
than that each has the way of Christian kindness and compassion—so
sadly lacking in the shameful excesses of the last few days. Let no
political demongoguery, no racial hate, no devotion to states rights,
confuse or hamper the essential, the inescapable choices.
News From Around Nebraska
There is a deadlock impending between the PapilUon
Volunteer Fire Department of the town and the Rural Fire De
partment, the Papillion Times revealed last week. The two
groups have been unable to work out an arrangement for Uie
continuation of their work on a cooperative basis. City volun
teers declare they will continue to answer calls in the rural
area but they are trying to work out a deal whereby they will
receive pay for the run on the basis of the amount of equip
ment pressed into use and the number of men who find It
necessary to go. , . . .
The city department has been asking the rural departm nt
to pay a $2,000 standby fee for the service, in addition to fur
nishing one truck and paying half the cost of all the hose used.
The rural department is operating on a taxation basis which
raises about $2,500 per year and they have indicated they think
the charge is too high.
Ed’s. Note: Blair furnishes fire fighting igrvices FREE with
out so much as even asking the rural property owners to buy a
truck or pay for a foot of hose.
