This was (iO years ago; 40 years lifter the Emancipation Proclamation and the 14lh Amendment, Which provided equal protection of the law to all citizens. .The other day, WIlklMs, how 61, executive secretary of Hie NAACP and a leader in the current Negro drive, reminisced a bit and looked Into the future. Goals RoAchcd "Tilings are happening In my Ifettme now that' I thought t would never live to see," he Said. I've seen goals that I dreamed of as a young man suddenly at- alned. 'Several years ago Cincinnati, one of our largest cities, had a *fegro Vice mayor; last fall Mas- ucliusetls elected a Negro attor- icy general; ConncctJcut elected u Negro treasurer. "When I was growing up in St. Louis and rooting for the Cardinals I always hoped for It and worked for it but I could never visualize u Hank Aaron or a Willie Mays or a Jackie Robinson." Only 25 years ago, Ugh hopes of Negroes revolved around an anil-lynching measure that failed to pass Congress. Now, some see the ultimate goal in sight. "The ultimate goal is simply equal opportunity for all," says Whitney M, Young Jr., executive director of the Urban League. Henry Lee Moon of the NAACP sees the ultimate Negro goal aS the Negro and white man standing side by side as average people. "A Negro should not have to be a Ralph Bunche or a Robert Weaver in order to take his rightful place in society," Moon said 1 Barriers t4 The big battle is to lower the barriers," says Wilkins.

Saturday Alton police learned that Mrs. Phyllis Apel of 33 Edwardsville Rond, Wood Rivnr, had ro- cnived bruises about hpr lofl shoulder nnd right elbow in a fall said to have occurred on « side-1 walk near the southwest corner of 3rd and Market Streets. She received emergency treatment at St. Joseph's Hospital. A policeman who checked at Iho hospital found Mrs. Apel had already been treated and dlsmls- sod. and furlher details of the "It's quite important: lo remetn jer Ihat the chief target Is not iHvale of personal prejudice— ivhlch mny never be eliminated— he chief target Is prejudice in public lift? that influences oppor- unily and rights. "The goal Is simply equal op' lortunities," says Jackie Robin- ion, the first Negro to play ma- or league biisebnll and a member of the baseball Hall of Fame, "There will be prejudice as ong as people exist. There's rejudlce In every group of ile; wen among members of the same family. "There's prejudice on baseball cnms—bul it doesn't keep them mm playing ball together. They mve found that they can't win inless they play logelher." Robinson may be considered to mve it made, He's vice president of a restaurant chain and lives vilh his family in a fashionable suburb in Connecticut Still., he lends his name and ireseiice to the Negro cause. "Sure, I have quile a lot," he says. "And I also have three kids. What is going to happen to them? What opportunity will they have? 'Until Ihe Negro in the deepest South has it made, I have to keep fighting." Progress' in education and politics, say Negro leaders, is moving fast; employment and housing are dragging their feel. Says Moon: "The country is even more ghelloized now than it was at the turn of the century. Expand Ghettos "A large number of Negroes have moved into the cities but they have only expanded the ghettos. Most cities in the North With their big ghettos are more segregated than Ihe Soulh." Wilkins feels that the ultimate goals will be achieved "within our generation." "He is so sure that he is starting to look beyond the goal of op porlunity. "There will be a lot of work lo do in the Negro community after the barriers are down," he says. "The competition in the while world is fierce. And it has nothing to do with color prejudice. A Negro won't be able to hide behind the excuse: "They did it because I was black.' "I don't entertain many fears that the Negro cannot compete in Ihe while world. The good ones have already been sharpened by he extra competition of prejudice. "If you unshackle the Negro, you'll find there are the weak ones, there are the fast buck guys, there are the con-men! But there are also the solid Sunday- go-to-meeting people and even geniuses, "All Iho Negro wants is to bp let loose. Eventually he will shake down nnd find his place—his rightful place."
