That Is, h« is i«rk-| tog to get away from special laws. | ordinances, orde'rs, barriers and signs that group him on race lines and to be treated as an individirl with all the rights and privileges granted to an American citi/en by the Constitution and due to every human being on the basis of his humanity alone. It is our hope to get what we seek, Perhaps many murmur to themselves, "This will never be." We can answer only that "never" we admit is a mighty long time, but very much can happen during that time. Higher and mightier walls than American race prejudice have fallen while "never" is yet on its way. Certain it is that we are citizens of a nation, big, rich and strong. And here is qur danger, to feel that we are beyond God's righteousness. The pages of history, ancient and current, show that when God gets ready, the size and wealth of a nation do not give him any trouble r« all. As a race, we have friends in this national struggle who really care for us and sympathize with us. They realize what we have achieved during the 100 years of our emancipation and know with unquestionable certainty that we have "manna that others know not of"; we have the living water to quench our thirst through trials and tribulations; we have 1 iron shoes for the rocky road and a safe Guide whom we follow.

CON-TRIB UTIONS From Our Readers (Public Opinion) Mr. and Mrs. Rex Meneely Announce Daughter's Marriage Miss Patricia Louise Meneely, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rex Meneely, 104 Polk street, and Mr. Larry Raymond Reeter, son of Mr. "MUsiulppI, Campui" The Negro race has a hard time with a few white folks. The governor o fMississippi, don't want Negroes to enter University of Mississippi because he's a Negro. And God said love one another. You can't have peace with one another when you act like that. I am a Negro myself. We Negroes don't want to mix up with white folks, or any other race. The white man is always hollowing about mixing up and he's the one who is always mixing up. If the white man would let our women alone this would be a better world to live in. I don't believe God intended for the races to mix up. If he did he would have made different, arrangements. I believe in every race staying with his own race. So many people get the wrong impression. Most of the people think when they say something about civil rights they think it's mixing up. But it's not. It means if I am capable enough to do a job, it don't make any difference what color I am. We are supposed to be educated. Then we act like people who never did have an education. The Negro race is the easier race to get along with. They are peaceful people. Now we have good and bad in all races. The white man started all this foolishness during slavery. That's all over with. It shouldn't Dear Sir: Just a word to straighten out a little mis-information which was in your paper a few days ago about me bein« married. For some unknown reason it has never happened and I do not know where it got started unless I have been kidding around about some nice lady who wanted to adopt a 75-year-old boy to take care of her and that I was in the market. I suppose someone took the liberty to say that I had found one and started the rumor and then someone said "yes, he is married". I can say truthfully, though, that no one has come up with an offer as yet—but I still have hopes. Missouri U. came through with flying colors Saturday by beating California. I have been out here for several years but am still loyal to Missouri and I am always happy to hear of them winning their games. I only hope that they will continue to be on the winning side. Tilton and I thought someone would be with the team that we knew and hoped that they would drop by and pay us a call. We are only about 15 miles from Berkeley. Most Sincerely, J. P. Newell. 1489 Monument Blvd., Concord, Calif. for MRS.
