WASHBURN" O LIN JOHNSTON, youthful governor of South Carplinn having gotten the worst of a legal clash with the State Highway Commission, resolved on direct action—and .called out the militia to enforce his will. Today the federal government told Governor Johnston to set his political hou^e in order, and cut off his highway aid until he does so. This is .getting to be a familiar story—and pretty soon the people are going- to have less patience than even such an impatient young man as Governor Johnston seems to be.

Politicians spill a lot Of rhetoric in "crucial" situations like this—but the people know that they truly have only those rights and liberties which exist under civil law. The people know; furthermore, that martial law in America Is justified only when the state Is. confronted by physical violence. For the executive to call -out the militia to combat an adverse judicial decision is wrong. ' • . . •' The executive has .put himself in the position of a belligerent common citizen—and when the executive behaves so, what militia can the people call on to protect themselves from, the executive?

When negotiations first started it was pointed out that playing the game at Hope would draw a larger crowd, and from a financial standpoint it would be better for both athletic ass'i- ciiitions. Tile protest at Prescott, it was said, revolved around a planned program which included coronation ceremonies ;it the (.'"me money for which had already been spent.
