Students Can Help
The Arts and Sciences Council has taken a step forward
in helping the committee set up by the A&M Board of Direc
tors to study segregation policy at A&M and other colleges
of the System.
Despite an individual’s opinion of the rightness or wrong
ness of the resolution passed by the Council, the passage of
such an opinion will indicate fit least some of the students’
This expression of opinion, whatsoever it be, would be
a great help, we think, to the Board’s committee. And it
would be a good idea for other groups, the other school coun
cils, various groups, the Student Senate above all, the Civil
ian Student Council, hometown clubs, and others, also to make
known their opinions.
For surely student opinion will be taken in consideration
by the Board’s committee, since it is students who will be
most closely associated with any action taken by the Board.
And, thus, it appears to us that the Board would be very ap
preciative of any help students can provide in studying the
important issue of segregation.
The aims of the Board committee is to study the prob
lem of integration with a view of determining what changes
are justified pursuant to the rulings on this question by the
U.S. Supreme Court and the Texas State Court.
Students, do your duty. This campus is too big for in
dividual conferences by the committee with each student, so
help them out by expressing your opinion through the groups
which represent you.
If in doubt about just what is the System’s policy, pend
ing the findings on the Board’s study on integration, talk to
your dean or head of your department, or to a qualified mem
ber of the staff. The Battalion will be glad to help in any way
possible, in helping to get or providing a speaker.

Editor, The Battalion:
In your March 1 editorial, “An
‘A’ for History,” you write that
Hodding Carter, in his Great Issues
speech, said many things “without
expressing an opinion.” I disagree
with you. I feel that you have de
liberately held back his ideas from
publication. If this is not so, then
it is logical to assume that you are
incapable of interpreting daily,
English speech.
That Mr. Carter did not express
an opinion is a gross misrepresen
tation of fact.
Wednesday evening’s speaker be
gan by giving us a revue (review?
—Webster defines revue as “a form
of burlesque in which recent events
are reviewed by imitation of their
salient features and chief actors,
Ed.) of the history of southern
culture, the contradictions to that
culture, and the contributing fac
tors to those contradictions. This
first part of his speech was intend
ed to bring to the audience a reali
zation of a fundamental fact: the
majority of the white population
of the south has not and does not
want integration.
The second point presented: prior
to the Federal Supreme Court’s de
cision on integration in public
schools, the South, in general, was
slowly achieving better relations
between the races. Mr. Carter’s
third point was that since the Su
preme Court’s order, the South lias
witnessed a very vapid deteriora
tion of racial relations. Through
out his talk, Mr. Carter expressed
his disapprobation of the Supreme
Court’s ruling.

Mr. Carter is a genuine courag
eous man. He has the audacity to
suggest in this day and age that
the determination of with whom a
person will associate is to be made
by the individual. He has shown
that he feels that it is not right
for the government to render this
decision. Since segregation is more
of a moral issue, Mr. Carter prob
ably feels that it is the duty of
churches, individuals, and other
groups to PERSUADE our fellow
men to practice the Judeo-Christian
concept of the brotherhood of man. 1

He would not have the federal gov
ernment dictate this to us.
Mr. Carter has the courage to
believe in the right of the individ
ual to learn to love his fellow man
by his own free will—not to be
forced to pretend to do so, as Karl
Marx and other Neo-Liberals would
have it.
I am very strongly opposed to
segregation. I am, however, aware
that there are those people who do
not share my views, and that their
views have resulted in a way of
