WASHINGTON Every state every community every law en forcement officer every citizen everywhere in the U S has some thing to learn from the disgrace ful and degrading mob violence in Alabama against white and Negro youths who were riding a deseg regated bus in inter state travel States is increasing ly determined that all citizens shall have total protection in the exercise of all civil rights and equal access to all public facili ties There is no basis for condoning whatever the reason the failure of Alabama local and state police to maintainpublic order They knew that the unsegregated bus riders were arriving in Montgom ery Gov John Patterson said the police would guarantee against mob They didnt the mob was on hand the police were not antil it was too late The unsegregated bus riders were exercising a constitutional civil right guaranteed to all citi zens and specifically upheld by the Supreme Court If the bus riders are constitu tionally right if Gov Patterson and the Alabama police are con stitutionally wrong and if mob vi olence is a crime against every body what then can be usefufly learned from this painful sequence of events I believe these are the lessons Isnt it time for responsible Southern leaders hi the states and in Congress to put their influence behind respect for law instead of their personal views of what the law should be The able and far seeing Sen Sam L Ervin of North Carolina is doing just that when he said this week that South erners who commit wrongs agairist Negroes or permit them to be committed hurt the cause of allr who want to an orderly test of the constitutional issues The time is at hand for other Southern leaders to rally behind the constructive stand of men like Sen Ervin The political and civil leaders of Alabama have not acted wisely have not served their own best in terests or those of the nation The unsegregated bus riders are violat ing no law In engaging in inter state travel they were exercising a constitutional right They may be doing it to provoke an inci dent they are certainly doing it to call national attention to this right then is the wise ar5 prudent and practical response to such an affair Surely it is to pay it no attention Let them ride as they did in Georgia and by so doing there wasnt an ugly head line or incident in a hundred miles Other Governors should be able to learn a lesson from Gov Pat terson His duty was to maintain public order Instead he publicly excoriated the bus riders and thereby invited the mob action he was pledged to avert He said the police would maintain order but they were absent when needed Is the Governor best serving his state by making martyrs out of the bus riders by forcing the Attorney General to send in armed Mar shals and by allowingincidents which add pressure for more strin gent Federal measures Every citizen should exercise every civil right as needed 1 can well understand that those who have long been denied civil rights equality feel they must press iheir case to make their deserved gains more rapidly I cannot escape the conviction that the freedom rid ers might accomplish more in a different direction FVr example if these young men and women had organized to get all qualified Negroes on the registration rolls of these states they have been rid ing through would this not be of more service to the people
