p YYie Battalion CADET SLOUCH Page 2 by James Earle THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1956 That Alabama Mob Anybody still wondering what happens when the indi vidual loses himself in the clutches of mob hysteria? If so, a quick glance at the situation in Alabama should j be fairly convincing. How sickening can anything get when such events occur in a nation that professes to be Christian, that professes to be democratic? Or just what is that mob there professing ? ; We don’t know—unless it’s murder. The majority of the persons that composed that mob probably would be the first to be indignant at the idea of subversion. But subversion it is that they are dealing in: subversion of any faith in humanity and, a superficiality in relation to the basic question of humanity, subversion of the best interests of the United States in this troubled world. Just how popular do these people, and most people, think the United States is in the eyes of the rest of the world? We have about one-half of the world against us on, a question of ideologies. And for the other half of the world, those countries now on our side and those countries who could be termed “neutral”, just what does democracy mean as expressed in our actions ? For it isn’t the good things that are remembered about us; all of our aid, which is necessary and humane, has not bought us friends in all of the countries to whom we have extended help. It’s the evil that occurs here that the rest of the world sees. The United States, and for that matter the white race, is a minority in this world. The yellow race and the black race far outnumber us, together or by themselves. And oppression of the one, in our country, the Negro, is seen as oppression of any minority. In their eyes, as public opinion polls in many of those countries have shown, we—the United States—are the tyrant, the war-mongers. We see ourselves as a peace-loving nation. But we’re kidding ourselves if we think that other nations see us in the same light. But, as said before, even so important a question as our appearance in the sights of other nations fades before the problem of the oppression of mankind. The entire “dark world” is slowly awakening; desegregation will soon be a world problem. We’ve got a lot to think about, a lot of adjustments to make. We’ve got to prove to the world that we really are the democracy we claim to be; we’ve got to prove that dem ocracy is a workable peace, both within our nation and with our neighbors of the world. — Bill Fullerton Agriculture Staffers Attend Work Conference Six members of the College Sys tem participated in the annual meeting of the Southern Agricul tural Workers Association in At lanta, Ga., which ended yesterday.
