AIN STEM _ it JULIAN CHRISCHIUIS Into tort * SMI A**' (Archie Moore was one of the all-time great Negro boxers. He was light-heavyweight champion long past the time when most boxers have hung up their gloves. Since his retirement, he has been working with youth groups on the West Coast. He wrote a statement of his beliefs for the San Diego Union and in this troubled time of racial strife, we feel it is worth reprinting.) By Archie Moore The devil is at work in America, and it is up to us to drive him out. Snipers and looters, white or black, deserve no mercy. Those who would profit from their brother's misfortunes deserve no mercy, and those who would set fellow Americans upon each other deserve no mercy. I'll fight the man who calls me an Uncle Tom. I have broken bread with heads of state, chatted with presidents and traveled all over the world. I was born in a ghetto but I refused to stay there. I am a Negro, and proud to be one. I am also an American and am proud of that. The young people of today think they have a hard lot. They should have been around in the 1930s when I was coming up in St. Louis. We had no way to go, but a lot of us made it. I became light-heavyweight boxing champion of the world. A neighbor kid down the block, Clark Terry, became one of the most famous jazz musicians in the world. There were doctors, lawyers, and chiefs who came out of that ghetto. One of the top policemen in St. Louis came from our neighborhood, We made it became we had a goal, and we were willing to work for it. Don't talk to me of your guaranteed national income. Any fool knows that this is insanity. Do we bring those who worked to get ahead down to the level of those who never give a damn? The world owes nobody — black or white — a living. God helps the man who helps himself! NOW THEN, don't get the idea that 1 didn't grow up hating the injustices of the world. I am a staunch advocate of the Negro revolution for the good of mankind. I've seen almost unbelievable progress made in the last handful of years. Do we want to become wild beasts bent only on revenge, looting and killing and laying America bare? Hate is bait, bait for the simple-minded. Sure, I despised the white who cheated me, but I used that feeling to make me push on. If you listen to the professional rabble-rousers, adhere to this idea of giving up everything you've gained in order to revenge yourself for the wrongs that" were done to you in the past—then you'd better watch your neighbor, because he'll be looting your house next. Law and order is the only edge we have. No man is an island. Granted, the Negro still has a long way to go to gain a fair shake with the white man in this country. But believe this: If we resort to lawlessness, the only thing we can hope lor is civil war, untold bloodshed, and the end of our dreams. ! We have to have a meeting of qualified men of both races. Mind you, I said qualified men, not some punk kid, ranting the catch phrases put in his mouth by some paid hatemonger. There are forces in the world today, forces bent upon the destruction of America, your America and mine. And while we're on the subject, do you doubt for one minute that communism, world communism, isn't waiting with bated breath for the black and white Americans to turn on each other full force? Do you want a chance for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the land of your birth, or do you want no chance at all under the Red heel? THERE ARE members of the black community who call for a separate nation within America. Well, I do not intend to give up one square inch of America. Well, I do not in- be told I must live in a restricted area. Isn't that what we've all been fighting to overcome? And then there is the element that calls for a return to Africa. For my part, Africa is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. If the Irishmen want to go back to the Emerald Isle, let them. If the Slavs want to return to the Iron Curtain area, okay by me. But I'm not going to any part of Africa to live. I'm proud of my ancestry and of the country that spawned my forefathers, but I'm not giving up my country. 1 fought ail my life to give my children what I'm able to give them today — a change for development as citizens in the greatest country in the world. I do not for a moment think that any truly responsible Negro wants anarchy. I don't think you'll find intelligent — no, let's rephrase that — mature Negroes running wild in the streets or sniping at total strangers. God made the white man as well as the black. True, we haven't acted as brothers in the past, but we are brothers. If we're to be so many Cains and Abels, that's our choice. We can't blame God for it. Something must be done to reach the Negroes and the whites in the ghettos of this country, and I propose to do something. As a matter of plain fact, I have been doing something for the past several years. 1 have been running a program which I call the ABC — Any Boy Can. By teaching our youth, black, white, yellow, and red, what dignity is, what self-respect is, what honor is, 1 have been able to obliterate juvenile delinquency in several areas.

Air conditioning has been around for a long time, but so far only a few companies—the people who make Rolls Royce for one—have had the good sense to include it in their cars at no extra cost. We're another. We just don't understand why someone should be asked to pay a lot of money for a luxury car and then be asked to pay over $300 more for the luxury of air conditioning.

We'll soon have the reputation for making hot, sporty cars. The front and rear bumpers on the Javelin are massive. Unlike thin blade bumpers, these give the car a rich, racy look. The side windows on the Javelin are solid sheets of curved glass, without vents to break up its fast lines.
