The event will be another Triumph for emperor Haile Selassie a a Kings of Kings the elect of god and conquering lion of diplomatic sources say Addis Ababa is Likely to be chosen As the Headquarters for the new organization of african Unity Oak when african foreign ministers meet in Dakar Senegal next month. It already is the Headquarters of the United nations economic commission for Africa Eca. It depends on with whom you talk in Ethiopia whether the future is dark or Bright under the emperor s Imperial Rule. But everyone agrees that the emperor a 73-year-old Monarch in a continent which runs to Youthful republicans scored an impressive Victory for himself and for Ethiopia at the Summit conference Here last May which drafted the Oak charter. It was he who insisted that the 30 african Heads of state overrule the timidity of their foreign ministers and draft the charter Here. Both foreign diplomats and ethiopians credited him with the conference s Success. Haile Selassie s country has a history of 3,000 years an area one and one third the size of Texas and an estimated population of 20 million. Its soil is Rich enough to feed to times that number and its scenery is spectacularly Beautiful.

More than any emperor Haile Selassie has dragged Ethiopia Forward after centuries of isolation into an Era which knows the wheel and the air plane. He still rules As Well As reigns sometimes even to Small details a and hence the impatience of some of the younger civil servants. A slight bearded figure in full dress uniform who feeds pet Lions by hand he rules with what diplomats Here regard As consummate skill balancing this group against that and holding Ethiopia together As no other Man could. Ethiopia is entering the second year of her second five year plan which started last july and will run until 1967. It Calls for an increase of 4.6 per cent a year in Gross National product and an investment of $1,062,000,000. Over the past few years about a Quarter of the government s budget has gone for economic development. Eighty five per cent of the National product comes from agricultural crops grown by peasant tenant Farmers and herdsmen who make up nearly 90 per cent of the population. But the biggest growths Are scheduled for mining Industry and Power. There is Potash and Gold and exploration is hopefully going on for Oil.

Atlanta apr for 70 years after reconstruction every southerner was born into a segregated society. Segregation was his Way of life deeply rooted in his consciousness. Moreover it was Legal. In 1896, the doctrine of Quot Separ ate but equal was tested and the . Supreme court held it to be constitutional. Some May have Felt twinges of conscience even so. Ralph Mcgill publisher of the Atlanta Constitution has written a the More sensitive southerner often is self embarrassed by a realization that he has accepted unquestionably some aspect of his Community life which he rejects. But nonetheless he is a part of what he has met and been. And the past in tales of his grandparents his great aunts and uncles has been in his ears from in 1954, another supreme court reversed the earlier ruling. It held that a separate educational facilities Are inherently Southern lawyers and politicians had taken note of a series of court orders that put individual negroes in some Southern schools but the Man on the Street was not prepared for integration. Overnight in effect he was told that he must do a mental about face change his attitudes and abandon beliefs he had always held. Even where the Effort was made a nobody can say How Many southerners made it this was no easy task. In the South racial barriers Are going Down. Schools other Public facilities and business establishments Are being desegregated. What Are the feelings of the southerner As he sees the old patterns of life crumbling around him there is no one answer. At one end of the spectrum Are men like goys. George c.

At the other Are men like Hod Ding Carter editor of the Greenville miss., Delta de in of rat Ralph Mcgill and others who Are less Well known for their opposition to segregation. Carter and Mcgill receive Bales of letters some favourable More abusive. Between the poles of thought you find a the southerner who opposes integration but believes in Law and order. Reluctantly he says the courts must be obeyed. A the person who says Quot we were All getting along Fine until outsiders came in and stirred up the negroes. If the outsiders would go away the negroes would be perfectly Happy a the Man who says that since the supreme court reversed itself once on segregation it May do so again sometime. He wants the 1954 ruling tested again and again. For years the South has been working aggressively to attract Industry. The businessman knows a possibly from experience a that violence will hinder the drive. So. Although segregationists some advocate accommodation with negro demands. The situation for the Southern College student often is similar to that of the businessman. It May Gall him to see negroes on the Campus. But graduation is More important and he does t want to jeopardize that. Some thoughtful sincere persons in the South Are deeply troubled wrestling with conscience. A divinity student candidly acknowledges that he had been strongly prejudiced against negroes. After he began studying for the clergy he concluded that he could not reconcile his prejudice with his religion. Quot it was very difficult but i believe i can say now that i have freed myself from those prejudices a he says. A woman commenting on racial disturbances in a nearby City says Quot when the troubles started i tried to imagine myself in the position of a negro. I tried to see things from this Point of View. Frankly it was a Shock. But it still seems to me that of i were a negro it would be better to try to elevate my own race not lose myself in another this dovetails with the position of southerners who deny any prejudice toward the negro but say Quot race mixing is not the answer to the problem. For both races it is better to develop one Man said he is convinced that Quot idleness is causing the negro unrest North and South. Negro unemployment nationally is More than double the figure for the Whites. He said Quot i be lived All my life with negroes and i know that when they re Idle they tend to get in trouble. Give them something to do and you won t have All this Atlanta has gone further than most Southern cities in de segregating. A waitress in an upper bracket restaurant says she has seen Only one two White couples left in the Middle of dinner when negroes were seated at an adjoining table. How does she feel about waiting on negroes Quot i done to mind a she says. A the kind who come in Here Are just like anyone however placard carrying segregationists picket an Atlanta restaurant that has integrated. This is a painful example of the situation confronting Southern businessmen. They get it in the N.C. from both sides. Finally the southerner is watching with the keenest interest As negro demonstrations spread to the North. A now the Yankees Are getting a taste of the problem a he says.
