The. Birdsong Mississippi county has no reason lo I'ucl proud of Uiu reception tluil w» ; s ticcordcd Noi'iiiiin Thomas wlicn he al- tcmptcd lo speak at RinlsoiiK yesterday. Thu disturbance that made it impossible for him to deliver a scheduled address was a violation not only of his rights under the constitutions of Arkansas and of the United Stato.s, but of universal laws of courtesy and hospitality. •Are we so jittery, so uncertain of the merits of our position, that we are unwilling to permit a distinguished exponent of a different philosophy to express his views? Are \ve so uncertain of (.lie fundamental stability of American democracy that we must, in tho words attributed to lenders of the crowd at Birdsong yesterday, "make our own laws" to deny .such basic rights as those of freedom of speech and assemblage? .There is talk of the danger Unit discussion of the farm tenant problem may arouse ignorant persons lo acts of violence. There may be .such danger, although so far such violence as has occurred in the current controversy in northeast Arkansas has not come from llic tenants. Rut it is certainly more dangerous lo deny ;i large part of our population the right to seek relief from conditions which most of us are ready to admit could sts'iid improvement.! In so doing we only, lend to nourish a sense of injustice'-'anil- to .encourage a conviction Hint |)er)iii[w violence is the only way out. Perhaps we feel secure in our strength to impress violence. Cut u<e should dread arrival of the day when America becomes a land where the rights of the ruling class ran bo maintained only by holding the rest of the population under the iron heel of force. tt'c look with horror upon the methods which dictatorships of various sorts —proletarian, industrial and military- use to maintain themselves in foreign lands. To defend all Americans in the exercise of their fundamental civil and polilicaj rights is one of the bust ways of .guarding this country against, that sort of thing. Norimin Thomas may have a faulty understanding of the cause and nature of the conditions in this section in which he has interested himself: His OUTOUPxWAY prograin for the correction of lh« evils which exist may be worse limn useless, but lo deny-, Jiim the riglit lo express his views lo any who tire willing to listen is u procedure which holds much more danger to American institutions than anything he mirjlil sny, Heritage of Democracy The career of Uiu Jale Prof. Michael I. Piipin, who catne to America as a boy in search of democracy, is abundant proof that liu found precisely what he was looking for. Young Pupin WHS a Hungarian peasant youth when he ventured across the sea. Democracy lured him—democracy, under which a lad of the humblest birth would have ample opportunity to exercise the best talents that wen; in him. He seems lo have come lo the right place to (iml it. For he became, in democratic America, one of the world's best-known scientists. "Jli.s im-ivilmiw in Uio lialds of Ihe X-ray, telephony, and radio were used all over the earth. Democracy gave him its ( fruit—the chance to develop and use lo the utmost the potentialities thai Providence had given him.
