For several months the leaders of the Republican party have been planning a real campaign to break the Democratic hold on the "solid South." Some have advocated that the way to do it is for some statement statement to be made which would assure assure the whites in the South that they could vote the Republican ticket without fear of negro domination. domination. This has indeed been advocated advocated by those- those- Republicans who hailed from the South and who knew that some such utterance was neces- neces- sary before the whites could be per- per- helped in recent years by the influx influx of negroes into their congressional congressional districts, have feared that such a statement would be regarded as hostile by Northern negroes. Mr. Harding has tried a compromise.- compromise.- compromise.- He declares he does not believe believe in social or racial equality. That's an important statement for a President of the United States to make. But while the South has always always insisted upon its own right to determine who shall or shall hot be considered social equals, the trouble is that the true fear of political equality is that it may lead to social equalUy.. . At -least -least the Southern Democrats here who have made a study -of -of th-question th-question th-question declare that he line between political and social equality is too hazy to draw. They argue, moreover, that political equal ity means the election to office of negroes to rule over whites. Such a status, they add. Inevitably carries witn It social friction. Republicans who defended Mr. Harding's speech are vehement in their expressions of approval, pointing pointing out that the President has made a real appeal for a united nation and has not minced words in contending contending for a genuine and not an Imaginary democracy. The fact that the negroes in the audience applaud ed and cheered while whites stood silent, as reported in the dispatches from Birmingham, is regarded as of lesser importance than the after-ef after-ef after-ef fects of the speech on the mass of people who read and did not hear the utterance.
