one afternoon last Septembei
when Ike heard Randy practicing
his guitar. They began singing
together, just for fun, until they
got wind of an intended folk sing
ing concert in Chapel. The two
made their first public appearance
that fall and decided to continue
singing together. Since then they
have given various concerts, most
ly at Woman's College, but also at
Greensboro College, Averette Col
lege in Virginia, and at their own
home Guilford College. Aside

have entertained for private parties
and have held several jobs singing

was a member of the Greensboro
Senior High Choir, both of which
he attributes to laying the founda

Randy and Ike plan future night
club engagements in Baltimore,
Philadelphia and several places in
Washington. The duo enjoys sing
ing all types of folk music, but
prefers the old traditional folk
songs which are now being re
vived. The old ones, they feel, are
the most beautiful and yet the)
still remain buried in the depths ot
time, or isolated, out of the reach
of the modern generation. Even
more beautiful may be the songs
that were never written down and
may be lost forever.
Randy and Ike each play the
guitar and banjo and may be seen
alternating instruments from time
to time to add variety to their
music. They have used their own
arrangements for most of the
music that is heard 011 their new
album. Among other songs, they
I are singing "1 Know Where I'm
Going,' "Gypsy Rover. "Slienan
| doah," "Delia's Gone," and "Five
Hundred Miles." Many Guilford
students will want to keep their
eyes open for "Presenting Randv
md Ike." soon to be pi it out 011 a
Copeland Records label.

On the Political Scene
by The Senator
During the past few years the South has been going through a period
of considerable political unrest. This is evidenced by increased parti
cipation in politics on the part of the public at large; increased internal
controversy within the predominant Democrat Part)'; and a startling
upsurge in the strength of the Republicans.
There are several causes for this unrest. One of the most basic is the
intensification of the old problem ol race. Increased pressure from the
(deral government; greater concentration of population into urban
areas; a rising sense of dissatisfaction and determination for change on
the part of the Negro people themselves: all these factors have played
a part in the intensification ol this problem.
Other causes of political unrest include the question of centraliza
tion ol power in the federal governiiKnt. Federal housing, federal med
ical insurance, federal education, and a host of other federalized
functions are the subject of sharp and deep-rooted controversy in the
South. Increased urbanization in particular has brought this problem
to the fore. Problems in labor relations, unemployment, slums, public
transportation and other fields have followed in its wake.
The main changes wrought by these developments so far have been
within the Democrat Party. We are sec ing in many Southern states,
notably North Carolina, the rise of a conspicuously liberal w ing. In this
itat it is the liberal wing of the Democrat Party that is at present
tenuously in control. Whether or not the Sanford-Hennett organization
can prevail either in the party or in the state remains to be seen.
On the other hand we see a rise in Republican strength, as individ
uals who are more conservatives than Democrats move into the ranks
of the opposition, and as northern immigration introduces previous!}
unsouthern determinants of part} alignment, primarily economic de
Political predictions, particularly when the\ concern a populace
in the Southern political scene oxer the next few decates. The gradual
Nevertheless we shall venture to outline the general course of change
in the southern political scene over the next few decades. The gradual
attrition of conservative Democrats into the Republican Party added
to the recent upsurge within the Democrat Part)' of the liberal wing
should eventually lead to a much more progressive Democrat Part)
in the South. The Republican Part) during this period of realignment
can be expected to grow startling!) for a number of years. Republican
electoral successes will increase, very possibly resulting in temporal)
Republican dominance in the South. The newly liberal Democrats,
however, can be expected to retain much of their old strength, and it
is doubtful if Republican domination, even if achieved, can last for
any length of time. Nevertheless it is almost certain that a true two
party system will develop.
The South has for many years been the primary stumbling block to
the establishment of political parties truly national in policy. Not the
'east of the political advantages of this change would be the elimina
tion of this impediment and the establishment of greater unity between
he South and the rest of the nation.
