The Battalion Page 2 TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 1956 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’ views. 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. looking for a Spot to Begin a Career?

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. BARBECUE... Served with your f Favorite Beverage Old Hrdlika Place FRITZ & JOE'S CAFE On Claypit Road 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 The new dot® is made to give maximum distance for the long- hitting golfer.

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 (See LETTERS, Page 6) New tough Spalding top-flite® has an extra-strong cover that takes far more punishment than any ordinary ball . . . yet gives the maximum in long-distance performance.
