We must protest these evil things that Are thrust upon us by someone who is apparently out of touch with our desires.

J6 Chicago daily news was disturbing for severed reasons. First because Lawrence who is patently unsympathetic to demands for a Freedom now for the negro presumed to advise him on How to Best solve a a his problem when a i reasonably informed persons know that the problem is not the negro s but americans. Our nation faces the present perilous situation because for generations the majority of our people have harboured the convict Ion it spoken or otherwise that Black americans Are somehow not entitled to the opportunities privileges and benefits of a free society to the same extent As their fellow citizens. The Lawrence Effort was particularly unfortunate because he used for his Purpo get an Impromptu speech by Philadelphia a former m a v o Richardson Dilworth which Dilworth probably regretted when the stimulation of the occasion subsided. Lawrence quoted with evident relish dil Worth s charge that some negro leaders Are Damag ogs. It should not be necessary to Point out that unfortunately some of every group s leaders Are demagogy in fact considering the manlies invalidity of nut St of his tirade one could argue with some justification that Dilworth still smarting from rejection by the people of Pennsylvania was in this instance resorting to a Little demagoguery himself. Finally the Lawrence commentary left this negro with a profound sense of frustration and it it pair because it totally lacks any comprehension of the nature Kaiui depth of our deter unit on i. W i Hall not Ivr to i to which dive not in it pet of. D nil As men. To be sure it is exceedingly regrettable that we have been i Imit Elled to demonstrate for our rights and have thereby Given others an excuse to retaliate with Molix tur it i it also unfortunate that we have sometimes found it to make issues out of things Whit 11.

President Park Community Council nominate Daniels and Raynor for Congress ent Johnson has declared a War on poverty and this is Good. Of course i m wondering what he and Many of our other officials have been doing to these Many years. In be noted that no new strategy has been announced for carrying out the new War on poverty. So wondering has been intensified. And following the presidents Cue All the negro democratic com William cousins Mitte Emen in Chicago Foit Ned an exclusive club of democratic committeemen under the name of a Assembly to end prejudice injustice and now i also want to know what our committeemen have been doing to end prejudice injustice and poverty a to these Many years. Now that they have formally announced that they Are going to work for these laudable purposes Are we justified in concluding that they Haven to been so preoccupied up to now perhaps we Are justified in concluding that our Ward leaders Havno to been overworking themselves to attain the ends they professed last week to be organizing to seek. Then too perhaps they Are concerned that somebody else might actually do something. Perhaps they Are attempting to develop a tighter Bond among themselves in order to have a More solid Phalanx to use in attacking others who Are attempting to prove the plight of our people. Eaglewood views there Are Many a perhaps Quot about their move. One thing is Crystal Clear however they intend to give us plenty of eyewash. Government is our most important business. And its tragic that men with a Public be damned attitude have either grabbed or been appointed to political positions of Power and have used their Power so As to further impoverish a substantial percentage of our people. They impoverish us by utilizing the Feudal system feeding us crumb3 and keeping us obedient by threatening to take away even the crumbs if we become at one time i sought personally to fight in the political wars. I was and remain attracted to much that Abraham Lincoln said and did. I thought and still think it important that Public officials work to do for the people what needs to be done and what the people can not do so Well As the government. But the old pros looked and still look upon me with suspicion. A in politics according to the honorable j. Horace Gardner the first Rule is that of self preservation. Anybody in politics who does no to believe in this As the first principle is for the pros politics is the business of taking care of yourself first last and always. The Young politicians stand around waiting for the old ones to die and the old ones try to keep standing to kill off the Young politicians. It takes a Man of considerable courage to fight for reforms or changes in this sort of system. Halsted Morgan 1963 by Henry p.
