Negro's Place In Society Subject of Three Books TEN YEARS OF PRELUDE, by Benjamin Muse (Viki n g Press, 308 pages). ASSURING FREEDOM TO THE FREE, edited by Arnold M. Rose; introduction by Lyndon B. Johnson (Wayne State University Press, 306 pages). FIRE-BELL IN THE NIGHT, by Oscar Handlin (Atlantic-Little, Brown & Co., 110 pages.) In 1863, President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1865-67, the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution were ratified. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled public school segregation unconstitutional. In 1957, 1960 and 1364, the U. S. Congress passed civil rights laws. These are all mileposts in a controversy that is older than the republic. The controversy has waxed and waned during the years, and we are currently living through one of its more active periods, both politically and literally. A number of books on the subject have been published within the last few months, and three of the more noteworthy were written or edited by Benjamin Muse, Arnold Rose and Oscar Handlin. In "Assuring Freedom to the Free," editor Arnold Rose has selected and edited 12 lectures on the general theme, "The Development of ths American Negro and a Free Society," from a scries given ^t Wayne Slate University in celebration of the lOdfh anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. The lectures touch on (he Emancipation Proclamation itself, changes in American cities, in occupations, in the law ;md in politics as they affected the Negro. The effects of emancipation on colonialism and the emerging nations, the rise of the Black Muslims, and the religious roots of Negro protest movements are | Negroes has wirlrncd in the 10 also considered.

We can be equal and still be different, IIR points out, and he believes that the Negro can achieve the same sort of equality that has been won in the past by the Irish, the Jews, the Mexicans and th« Japanese, all of whom have achieved a place AMUSEMENTS AND THE ARTS World War One Leaders Studied Old China Hand• SAT., JULY 25, 1964, Lake Charles American Press where in the Deep South. Race i in our heterogeneous society, unrest has developed in northern cities. Opposition to integration has been steady and oft times bitter, but Muse sees 1959 as a turning point, in which observance of court decisions began to make headway. Although the vast majority of Negro children still attend segregated schools, more than 3,000 school districts have been integrated in the past 10 years. Muse has hopes for the future. He writes: "The unrest will end sometime because it is inevitable that, in America justice and humanity in time will prevail. The revolt will tend to end as Negroes find racial exclusions ended in one community after : another." i In "Fire-Boll n Die Niglil," j Oscar Handlin takes a less op| timislic view. In his small volume, the Harvard University | history professor contends that | the distance between whites and but who have succeeded in large part in maintaining their own culture and ethnic identity. There are first-rate books for thoughtful readers, and they help to underline the fact that "The Problem" has been with us for generations, that no easy solutions are in sight, and that it will have to he lived with until it. is solved.—STACEY.

After the war was over, he helped to direct operations against the Communists for a time in Manchuria. Finally, as time ran out for the Nationalist cause, Stuart himself left China, acquired a wife, and is now engaged in mining operations in Honduras. This is a vigorously written book, full of violence and sus- | pense. It is particularly interesting when the author discusses Chinese habits and customs, and in vivid descriptions of mining life, and the qetermined manor in which a few Chinese were was "carried away by his own eloquence and by the enthusiasm of bis hearers (and) did not know what he was going to say until he heard himself saying it." Then there was the ambiguity of purpose. Western Christians were to rescue the Christians of the East and also liberate Jerusalem. "But which came first, and must bolh aims be achieved?" The First Crusade proved the most successful. Had it been properly understood, according to nuggan, it mjght have laid the necessary groundwork for success in later Crusades. But those who planned the Second and later Crusades worked under the misconception that the First "had' done its work for all time and that nothing more was needed than a regular flow of reinforcements."
