, AUGUST 8,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH ss Busine Optimistic But Cool «.V SAM DAWSOfr At* liuftlneftft Nmvs Annlysl NEW YORK .(At')-It's' more than just Iho hot wcnthor Ihnl'? tnnldng ninny businessmen (nko il slow mid easy these; days. They hope—and most believe— that the economists ore right h saying that business Is sel. to tun belter Uils toll. But as of toclny there are so many things inn: could change quickly Hint, the top heavy majority of optimistic fore casters could be reversing theh guesses—as they've been known to do many limes in Hie past. Odds ore 1.1ml. today's hesitancy will bo Icmporury and thai cool weather will bring an upturn. Bui whore decisions cmi be postponed many businessmen are doing so jusl now. Optimism Is well seasoned with caution. A trade war pitting American chickens in one corner agiilnsl European wines, flower bulbs, trucks and buses, motion picture film, electric shavers, among other things, in Iho opposite corner, may have small Impact on Hit- general trend of the national economy. But it would be meaning ful lo American Importing firms and farm producers involved. And the war could spread, although by cool weather lime tempers on both sides may luivc fallen. How far the nuclear lest ban may fan out. Into oilier cold war fields is a i|iics!.ion. And so is I lie possible effect on individual producers and manufacturers of materials and goods involved. How nnuih longer the |x>slwar construction boom will last is another uncertainly, although most experts are stressing thai Americans' needs are slill far from met. The new car models have yel to make their debut and consumer reaction to them musl remain an unknown quantity till later. The best guess is that I lie auto industry has a better than average chance of another good sales year. But Hint's still lo be proved. Except for the railroads, the labor situation is comparatively quiet at the moment. But the basic conflict is far from resolved. That is management's desire for more cost-cutting automation, labor's demand for job security, and government's concern over unemployment totals that change litlle and threaten .lo grow. Possible tax changes also affect much business planning at the moment What Congress does about it could activate some programs, scuttle others. And Hie same is true of: consumers' spending intentions. The slock market lias been trying for'-the -traditional'-summer rally. But here, too, the many uncertainties keep many traders cautious and Hie public hesitant. A lot of this can be laid to the weather, and to vacations Uial keep key men away from their decision-making tasks.

Here is (lie way U.S. Negroes view (he small mid Ihe large Irritations which have culminated in a year of racial crisis. My .HJNItJS Ultll "Wo ure not something from 'Porgy and Bess 1 . . . we want to share equally willi our white brothers—yes, brothers." Those are the words of Herbert Fielding, businessman and a lender of the Negro community of Charleston, S,C. An official of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Fielding prides himself on being a moderate. But he sums up the temptation to violence, I IK; angers that many American Negroes feel in this summer of crisis. The Negro is mad," he says, "not angry, bill mad and filled with a hale he has nourished for ilmosl a lifetime." / I'VclhiH ICi'lim'il The feeling is echoed in the North as a Negro youth suddenly Hatches n while woman's handbag and flings il into the street. 1 did il because I hale while leoplc," he explains. You hoar Iho word "hate" igain and again as Negroes, packed into the gheltos of Harlem and Washington, Iry lo nrlic- .liate their feelings. In Savannah mcl Charleston you hear it once IIIOI'P. In Columbia, S.C., a Negro lalks of liis "intense dislike" of the ,vhllo man. In Charlotte, N.C., a Negro says simply: "We dislike the white nan. bul lie's doing better." North and South animosity is a uilpable tiling. In the South because the Negro feels the weight •>f "Jim Crow" laws, written and unwritten; in the North because he 'aces discrimination when he ivanls to get a job or live in cer- ain neighborhoods. Hosca Williams, 37, head of the Chatham County Voters League n Savannah, said: "We Negroes veren't born hating the white man. Ve have cultivated this hatred md nourished it for years hoping hat one day fe would make us isluimcd of ourselves. Bul he iasn'1. He lias given us pride . . pride lo protest and if neces- lary to tell him to go to hell if ic doesn't allow us full and equal opportunities." •Too Kudiciil' Williams said lhal he once worked for the NAACP, "but, I became loo hot for them, or ralher too radical. I don't believe in tomorrow. I want equal rights for my people now. If necessary, I intend lo die in Georgia fighting for wlial I believe is right and to leave my children an honorable legncy." In Charleston, NAACP official Fielding delights In talking about the historical beauty of the city and Its traditions. "The white man's great falling here Is Unit he doesn't know that his Negro neighbors arc just as prldeful, .stubborn, and sensitive aboul this great city as they are," he said. OS the deepening racial crisis, Fielding said: "We are al the bottom, llie end of Ihe rope, The only 'way the Negro can go is up. And if we musl fighl to get there, both races will wear the battle scars for generations to come." The Rev. I. Dccjuincey Newman, NAACP slate field secretary, sees u long and bitter fighl for Negroes in Charleston and other parts of South Carolina. "If the while man had any sit) cere desire about ending this problem, he would lake down Ihc barriers of segregation and allow responsible Negro leaders lo con- cenlrale on preparing the poor and impoverished Negro for the role he is lo play in our new society," Newman said. "We no longer ask Ihe Negro masses nol lo hale," Newman added. "We lei) him lhal if he musl hate ho .should try to show a little mercy. This is a harsh but realistic view." In Columbia, Dr. Howard E. Wright, president of Allen University, an all-Negro school, said "The task of helping our students to (ace the realities of our times is just as important as sending them oul inlo the world with an academic education. "The racial tempo here is such Lhal any incident, in a downtown restaurant or store can cause our students to drop their books and lake lo Ihe slreets. It's loo bad lhal I can't join them. 1 can't tell them that everything will work itself out. This would be a lie." Charlotte, N.C., has eased racial barriers in hotels, restaurants, schools and recreational facilties, but still is plagued with racial problems in hospitals and in job opportunities. Dr. Reginald A. Hawkins, a Charlotte dentist and ordained Presbyterian minister, says: "I served in. World War II and the Korean War and I have no In- .ention of stopping my people's fight, for equal rights. We want those rights now, not gradually . . bul now." Dr. Emory L. Rann, a Charlotte physician and leading Negro moderate, has spoken against racial demonstrations. (British-American "Our demonstrations have sim-1 agreement. ply outgrown their usefulness," Raim said. "It Is now time we started negotiating wilh the city council. I don't see what good we can now derive from all ugly incident which could occur during a demonstration." Rann stands almost alone In Charlotte's Negro community. There also is a split between what Negroes call "ceremonial leaders" and others who are close to the pulse of America's Negro masses. Ceremonial 'leaders are described by Ihe Negroes as those who slay away from the underprivileged within their own race and who have lost contact with the Negro people.
