1) The Battalion THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 1956 An ‘A ? for History Hodding- Carter said a lot of things last night—and proved that it could be done without expressing an opinion. We’ll have to take our hats off to Mr. Carter; he is an excellent historian, and knows how to put the historic back grounds of Southern problems into perspective. But he ap parently has decided that to put out the historical facts is as far as he should take things; no opinions can invade the sacred facts. People, even the majority, cannot vote on facts; they can vote only on policy based on facts. On policy Carter is a self-admitted “middle-of-the- roader”—what is described as a “mugwump”: his mug on one side of the fence and his wump on the other. No doubt what the famed editor said last night would be controversial in his home state and city. But we were disappointed, which might prove nothing except that the State of Texas has paid more attention to the problems of segregation than has other parts of the “Deep South.” The best part of his speech was the emphasis on the freedom of both sides to hold and proclaim their beliefs. He said, “The strait-jacket of conformity is a menace to every aspect of American life.” How true, but as was the rest of the speech, how often said before. Of course, we realize and endorse the view that freedom of speech should be brought home to everyone. So no real condemnation on that point. But still we were disappointed, for we had expected more out of a man with the reputation of Hodding Carter. He said nothing, not even his jokes, that was not old news, which makes it strictly history. Independence can be carried to an extreme, as can the middle-of-the-road. It’s better to have an opinion, plus an open mind that can adjust the opinion to fit the facts. So, Mr. Carter; you made an “A” in history, but failed your problems course last night. Well, Mr. Smarty, who knows a good way to clean clothes with gasoline. . . .
