VOL Aisoclated Prew ud United Pntt Full LCM Wlrei MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY APRIL 27 7e a Copy Piper ot m One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGLO WO I Cueidiv A Start Had to Be Made QNE CANT LOOK at the si uation nationally and mak an honest report that things ar going well in the field of rac relations School desegregation is pretty much on dead center there has been a rash of schoo and synagog bombings hate mongers are in full cry On the basis of the evidence at hand its pretty bard to re but the oftrepeated claims by segregationists that the things of which I speak were made in evitable when our courts anc our government began butting in on what had come to be re garded as state and local af fairs A corollary to this point of view is that we wouldnt have had all this trouble if we had just let nature take its course let well enough alone as it were What weve tried to ac complish by forced draft and overnight should havebeen al lowed to come to pass through gradual evolution the story runs I I am ready to concede that the manifestations of violence and hate to which I have re ferred have been produced by the historic opinion by the U S Supreme Court just five years agti But I will not concede that the objectives of equality under the law implicit in that decision would be reached in fifty or five hundred years by gradual evo lution FOUND ON IOWA Gl Loots Foster Parents Home NEWTON UPI A 19yearold Newton soldier was charged with breaking and entering here Monday after police charged he looted his foster parents farm of

the old GI method of passing the talkingto the local girls Some troops were called out following a series of dynamitings and violence THE INSTITUTION OF SLAV ery came to America some three hundred years ago A war was fought between the states almost a century ago to blot out slav ery and give Negroes the statu of human beings If anything very significant in the fulfill ment of that promise was going to come about by evolution mos assuredly it has had ample time to do so One whobelieves really believes in the founding fathers pledge of freedom and equality of opportunity for all is almost forced to recognize that the same ferment which grew out of the 1954 decision of the U S Supreme Court would have resulted if that decision had been postponed until th year 2054 Inshort those with a veste interest in status quo now woulc be even further entrenched in that vested interest with further passage of years Or so it seems to me Now lets take a look at the national scene and see just wha Redistrict Bill Still Considered DES MOINES Legisla tive leaders predicted Monda the adoption of a reapportion ment plan this week This would be the first step in amending the Constitution to give recognition population trends to changing As a consti tutional amendment the plan would have to have the approva has been happening in recen months and perhaps most sig nificant is the fact that in the courts of law especially federal courts 1958 saw a continuing advancement of legal equality as among the races In nearly every attempt to evade accept ance of recognized law the courts have stood in the path This was true in Arkansas and it was true in Virginia where the term massive was spawned Another fact on the optimistic side is that 1958 brought no of another legislative session and of the people ac election As the two houses reconvened Monday it was expected that a committee would be gin work on a compromise plan which seems to have enough strength to be adopted CLARK M c N E A L
