All muleria) should be typed and double-spacer! and is subject lo editing. Writers should sign their names and. in the cases of students, «houid give their age. Names will be withheld on request.) Dear Editor: 1 wrote Hie 'Commercial Appeal about what our guest writers did Sunday. There were six of those folks - Who Spoke I'heir Minds — for all of us? Not exactly. We have citizens of every race and color in our United States.. They are all under oath (to behave, regard all laws passed, right? 'Right, bill do they march? Hold up signs? No. They took the word of our nation — that is supposed lo be and is a free country; under God. Our word that they will all be treated.equal. Lets face it, people, wake up:-Every color, and creed has a soul! Are we going to select our crowd, on Resurrection Day? Do you honestly believe this? If so, brother, you'd better get right with God, and get down on your knees and pray, and esk forgiveness. Now listen to me, some one like myself — there's no use to march is there? (Now come en.) Get with it. Let's O.K. these things they have passed in Congress (and signed by the Roosevelts, Kennedy, and Faubus's. Did they do right? You just bet they did. Now to sell the colored people this idea. Hate? Well, I'll tell you, from experience. Speak nice from your heart out. They can tell. They are human like us whites and tans. They love their families and children Sike we do. They love their country. They fight for their country, like we do. (O.K.) Now, why should the negro fight "to poll?" Isn't it a crying and disgraceful shame. The negro works beside you every day, they smile, say good morning — and in their faces, whether the> be in nurses hospital as helper or doctors aren't they just as nice as our whites? You bet they are. Did you know underneath that tan skin, they are white too, — beloved, they are bumble. They love God like we do. God belongs to everyone, on earth. Here's where Congress, has failed. If you put a man out to guard, isn't it just a sign, to say to everyone: "Stay off the green grass." If this man is off Guard, leaves, and returns to Duty, in the Armed Forces, of law only, to direct men in action, only, don't you really think we would have less trouble out of these White and Negro marches? (But first, tell them, at churches and schools (their places of meetings, like ours) they are free to choose their president, governors, lawyers, doctors, school teadier - just as free to poll, as we are. (Their peoples.) It would not be no trouble "of any kind." I honestly believe, they want to be let alone, select their chosen man in office of this U.S.A. just like other races of colors of skin do. They don't feel free to do what they are doing Have you ever walked one mile? In this modern day (?) isn't it rough. Did you read where Hie colored man seeking to be loved by his white friends, wanting their respct so bad? H was 56 years old. "He gave his life in the Freedom March to honor America, most ot all He, Joe, gave his life for his people's liberty." He was seek ing to walk with us to be re- otiicr. Let's get this hate out of our souls, let God take over. He i a s, but have we honestly? Some few have. But lets see more goodness, more respect, shown to our Negro. I don't like the name Negro. No more than most of them do. (They'd oved lo be called friend to us all, like all other races are.) Think, friends, there's no need for a racial war. It's silly and Hie way to win friends is to be a friend to everyone. Unless he or she has violated a law. Then we need Ihe guards. Put the man or woman in prison, 'if anyone steps out of bounds. But for gosh sakes, in America, this great land of ours, when a law is passed or a,bill passed in Congress, by all those men appointed by being polled by the millions forget the what you personally wanted and was disappointed; accept, don't reject shed, and those so called marchers, etc. seek peace. Americans we've all got to pull together and win a War in Vietnam. (Or have you heard of iis being at War over there?) You bet there is a war over there. They've got 280,000 of our men. Whites and Blacks, yes, the Negroes, Indians, Italian, Irish, English Swedish Polish, Czechs American Japanese etc., every race fighting, for freedom over here. To give us back to keep for generations, and hundreds ol years to come, our nation — a place to worship together, play together, step side by side. Let's cut this mess OUT, and respect our LAW, passed by Mrs. President Johnson and our Con gress! To you I say, "there is no need for marches. Let's march forward, in seeking fel lowship, working hard. Let's forget our dislikes. And remem her, friends, there a war going on! They aren't marching they're fighting like the very devil for all of us. (All colors of folks back here at home in American.) Let's pray "we can je all be civil of tongue." Seek understanding, quiet down!

There are 194 days left In the year.

Guest Writer, Helen Mahan, NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: If you drive aftev taking six drinks, there's a l-in-20 chance you'll be involved in an accident. But if you try to drive after 20 drinks, according to the American Insurance Association, it's a 50-50 gamble whether you and the car will get home safely. Kids today may call their dad anything from "Popsy" to "hey, you." But in early New Puritan children addressed their father as "honored sir." The lale William Randolph Hearst was a man who didn't like to be crowded. When h e went to the theater alone, he always bought two seats — one for himself, Kie other for his hat. Some octopuses are better quick-change color artists than chameleons. In the twinkling of an eye they can switch from chocolate brown to milky white or brick red. College boys now have less and less desire to become tired businessmen. Only 14 per cent pared with nearly 40 per cent of those graduating five years before. Quotable notables: "Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only lo be understood" — Marie Curie. You probably never have seen an oyster eat corn on the cob, and you probably never will, but.
