Charges and counter charges Are being hurled like summer lightning Balta by the incumbent and the challenger and j there seems no sign of setup until the rewarding november Rains finally resolve the contest. While no one enjoys a political free for All than we can t 1 Fulp noticing and feel need for commenting an irrelevant Issue has been raised in the heat of debate by the incumbent congressman Jim Bromwell. Bromwell has accused his opponent John Culver of being import alluding to the fact that Culver served Kennedy s legislative assistant and implying that Culver is Here As part of a Kennedy machine to effect some kind of nefarious democratic takeover in the second District of course the charge is utter nonsense. At Bot Tom we would imagine that. Congressman brom Well is As aware of that As any other intelligent voter but finds the argument too politically Tan Taly zing to resist. It would seem to us that the Battleground for the second District seat profitably be a rational discussion of the problems that face the District and How each candidate proposes to re Spond to them. An Exchange of innuendo and personalities would be a poor substitute and one that we doubt the second District s voters Are in a mood to stand still for. There Are too Many important issues that need to be resolved Here. All of them Are More important than the Alfalfa of either candidates hair or his Longi Vety be Hind an Iowa mule in a crooked Furrow. We would Hope that spleen venting can be put aside for an intelligent discussion of the District s problems and positive statements of the alternatives that each candidate proposes All the rest is some Cheally Hoo it s received As such and is no credit to any Campaign for the High of fice at stake.

Thill de in i his i Iii o ii i is Pri la it v Tiitu ii the editor s notebook Intro spation How the negro fares in our Southern states has been a subject of wide and Tounge Cluck ing discussion Here in the North for almost a daily topic for discussion in recent months. The fact is that the negro has suffered abysmal economic and social conditions in Dixie for a Long Long time. No mistaking it life for the negro in the deep South has not been rewarding or pleasant but before we castigate the South for its intolerance for which it rightly Deser ves censure we might take a look Here in our own backyard to examine just How far we have allowed the s negro to Progress in what we imagine to be the piously tolerant North. The fact is that while Many o f us pay lip service to the idea of1 i i racial Equality and. Justice not Many of us have really put those principles to work or taken them to heart. The negro in the North re Mains a second class citizen for All of our pious denials. Job opportunities and mobility Are still rigidly stratified. Save for the relatively few areas where the Federal government requires it employers do not in fact give negroes e qual Job consideration. The Northern negro has fared Little better in providing himself with decent housing. The Northern ghetto is every bit As real As its Southern counter part every bit As de meaning and heart breaking. We in the North right fully deplore the indignities the ruthlessness and inhumanity with which negroes have been subjugated in the South. Their plight out for our help and understanding. Men of Good conscience work ceaselessly in North and South to Are jus Tice but before we or it our Sph Pii on ought to take a Long look around our own part of this nation to see just How much better things Are Here. The absence of police dogs and fire hoses Are not to be construed As Liberty. While silent and sinister unwritten Laws keep the Northern negro in his place and we remain a will ing part of a conspiracy by our inaction we Point the Finger South Ward to ease our own conscience More than in a serious desire to see Justice and human Ity served. It s a Sham that really does t fool anyone not the South Erner certainly not the even ourselves. The crisis is being brought to the fore with increasing fury each Day. It is a fury that could destroy More than it accomplishes but per haps it will sound the Claxon that will Rise us out of Pur pious slumber and Call us to the task of every Good american seeing that every citizen enjoys every Blessing of Liberty that All men Are equal before the Law and that the dignity of no race or Creed can be denied without under mining everything that we stand and have stood for.
