a look at present conditions of the Negro

Stndent Christian Council's outlook on
toe Freedom fund.
, By John Else
Since early March, Negro
and white students in the
South have been participat
ing in "sit-in" demonstra
tions of many typesr One
of these demonstrations
started in Nashville, Tenn.,
where young Negroes
walked into the Woolworth
Store and sat down at the
lunch counter.. They were
refused service.
In tras case, as in nu
merous others, the Negroes
did . not retaliate when a
group of whites began name
calling, spitting, cuffing
and then boldly punched,
banged heads against the
counters, stuffed cigar
ette butts down the Negroes
collars and finally pulled
three Negroes from their
seats and beat them.
As the Negroes ran from
the store, the whites
screamed for them, to stay
and fight. Even though
there were law officials
around the . store, no one
was arrested for starting
the violence.
In Marshal, Tex., 70 stu
dents from Bishop College
and Wiley College were ar
rested for sit-in demonstra
tions. Bail for release of
each student was $700,
which was paid by Negro
property owners, but each
student is to be tried in
dividually, which means
large court costs for their
trials and fines.
These two examples only
serve to show what is hap
pening in the South. There
have been numerous arrests
and money is urgently
needed to pay bail for re
lease, court costs for tirals,
and the fines levied.
The Student Christian
Council, representing the
Protestant denomina
tions on the campus, wishes
to speck on this situation
for two reasons: as citizens
in a democratic nation we
hold that each man is en
titled to his place in socie
ty; as communicants of the
Christian faith we hold that
God, through Christ, was
I I Op daily 9:30 to 5:30

reconciling all men to him
self and to each other.
We view the -demonstrations
In the South as evi
flence that the living Christ
is now at work reconciling
negroes and whites unto
each other ,and to God. Our
faith calls, us to share with
the campus our conviction
that we in the North must
participate in this recon
ciliation. We think one valid way
is to raise money to pro
vide lawyers' fees and court
costs for the Negroes de
fense so that the separa
tion of colors is no longer
ata estrangement of man's
relationship to his fellow
Thus we have turned to
the All University Fund to
ask their support for an all
campus solicitation. Any
money raised will be given
to the Freedom Fund ar
ranged by the National As
sociation for the Advance
ment of Colored People for
the specific purpose of help
ing Negroes pay their court
costs and attorney fees.
There are at present sev
eral different funds to
which money can be given,
but we believe this particu
lar one to be the best. By
designating our money in
this way, we do not feel that
this implies complete sup
port of the N. A. A. C. P.
It is only recognition that
their fund is the one which
will be the most effective
in distributing funds where
they are needed.
However, no action will
come from the S. C. C. un
til the A. U. F. has an
nounced its decision. Fur
ther plans will be made
pending their decision.

ence. That's why employers often prefer men who Berved at
commissioned officers. These men already have proven
their capacity to shoulder executive responsibility.
2. Traditional rewards, In every organization, greater respon
sibilities mean greater rewards. Thus the traditional respon
sibilities and prestige of an Army officer are matched by
material advantages. For example, if you plan to marry
soon after graduation an officer's salary can be a distinct
advantage. A married 2nd Lieutenant earns a minimum of
$355.68 per month plus substantial fringe benefits.
