State Negro Education
' The bill, initiated by Representative Murphy, recently
passed by the State's House of Representatives and being
considered now by the' Senate intends to answer the consti
tution of the State by moving a step forward in providing
"equal opportunities in higher education" for Negroes and
The bill provides (1) "Authority for North Carolina Col
lege for Negroes' at Durham to establish graduate courses in
liberal arts, with law, pharmacy, and library sciences par
ticularly mentioned ; (2) Authority for Negro Agricultural
arid Technical College at Greensboro to establish graduate
courses; (3) Authority for college' to pay expenses elsewhere
under well-defined conditions, of applicants for graduate
courses riot provided in the two Negro institutions.
The bi, if passed by both houses, will not, however, com
ply strictly with the State constitution because the oppor
tunities in higher education will not be exactly or even ap
proximately equalized by the provisions for new equipment
at the State's Negro colleges. First, the State would obviously
not be able to make the tremendous financial outlay that
would be necessary to bring the Negro institutions up to the
equipment level of the Greater University. And secondly,
even if this were possible, the traditions, experience, arid
other intangible qualities could not readily be imparted to
these improved Negro institutions.
The third provision of the bill, however, proposes to par
tially overcome these difficulties by paying the expenses of
Negroes to go elsewhere, if the desired graduate courses are
not avaible. In spite of the fact that such a practice will
take place under "well-defined conditions," whatever they
may be, it is doubtful that this third provision will exten
sively provide out of state education for Negro graduates,
because of the recent Gaines-Missouri decision of the U. S.
The bill, then, by no means completely realizes the ideal,
imbedded so firmly in the minds of many liberal thinkers,
that of "educational arid social equality for the Negro race."
But, on the other hand, it is a definite step toward that
. ideal. It will, for example, be an encouragement to some of
thfc: Outstanding professional Negroes in the State, such as
doctors, lawyers, arid pharmacists, to devote their skills to
the education of other of their race. Arid above all,
it will provide" a' newer arid more complete opportunity for
, .the, exceptional iNorth Carolina Negro to assert himself posi
tively; to actively and not verbally break down the stigma of
cultural inferiority that, has been his heritage. In the long
run, the White Southerner may be able to observe the Negro
changed by an eriviorriment more nearly his own. .
If the legislature passes the bill it will manifest a con
, victioh of the people throughout the. State that Negroes
should not be forced to limit their educational progress, be
cause of forces beyond" their control. 4
To Tell Tiie TrutJi
By Adsian Spies
A boy was speaking to us about our ;
column recently. He : intimated that
we did not have, a sense of humor,
and. that we always interpreted the
sordid aspect of things. And the boy,
in friendly advise, urged that we find
something funny in the "confusions"
around us and give a laughing thought
Well, we hope that our friend is
reading today's column. For we have
come upon written words that are
really quite a riot, and we have come
upon a man's thoughts which, are
most contemptibly amusing. The man
is the inevitable David Clark, and the
writing which amused us was found
in his TEXTILE BULLETIN. Read
ing what this constant critic of Frank
Graham's University had to say, we
laughed. And we hope that our friend
will agree that we do have some sense
for comedy though it be deadened by
unfunny things which more blithe
souls usually choose to ignore. -
David Clark's BULLETIN was dis
cussing Frank Graham's connection
with the Southern Conference on Hu
man Relations. He noted that our
president, was elected leader of the
Conference, and that it "stirred Bir
mingham, Ala., by its resolutions fav
oring social equality for .Negroes."
That is all that the article has to do
with the Conference which estab
lished a precedent of intelligent appli
cation of the solving of problems if it
did nothing, else. But David Clark's
TEXTILE BULLETIN apparently is
not interested in intelligent applica
tion. It seems only interested in the
doubtful fact that Birmingham, Ala.,
was "stirred." We think that this is
very funny. We have been laughing
The same article continues with its
surprising humor. For notice this gay
remark: "President Frank Graham
has protected a group of professors
who are socialists and communists
while they have used their class rooms
to instill their doctrines, which include
social equality for Negroes j into the
minds of students." It is amusing to
learn that a man with ideas must
have "protection" in these modern
days, and that a college president who
defends the right of intellectual free
dom is committing treason against his
state. It is really a laugh to learn that
the fundamental decencies which we
have accepted as natural in Chapel
Hill are acts of sedition. Either our
revolutionary errejnTsIs Ea ve hidden
in a mysterious corner or David Clark
has a wonderful sense of humor.
His article even manages to include
a particularly pungent remark about
the proposed tuition raise. We may
say that this last consideration dis
plays the same intellectual tolerance
of the previous points. "We have not
favored the proposed increase in tui
tion but believe that it is now im
perative that tuition be raised high
enough to prevent the attendance of
the horde of New York 'Eastsiders'
who have become an affliction and a
There are several "subtle" insinua
tions here if we have caught the key
to David Clark's sometimes difficult
humor. For the point seems to be that
these "Eastsiders" are both the causes
for any liberal thought and for the
age-old Negro problem. And that their
elimination will procure a cure for any
infection which David Clark imagines
Thus we have one of the funniest
artieles ever printed with an authori
tative stamp. It has completely ig
nored every ideal of intellectual prog
ress which this University is supposed
to represent. It was a rasping call to
prejudice and provincialism, and
another clumsy knife-wound for the
admirable Frank Graham. It is indeed
the common denominator of every
thing opposed to any ideal of the
democratic spirit. And that is why it
made us laugh.
We might have gotten angry with
David Clark's TEXTILE BULLETIN.
We might have hurried out facts and
figures and logical argument. But our
friend told us that we do not have
a sense of humor. So we have seen the
brightest side of an intolerant blast.
Arid we have decided to be amicable
about it and chuckle that David Clark
is certainly a riot.

The agreement was made ;with the
Chapel Hill congregation that if stu

been made for the social life of the
students.-The church is used now only
for the intellectual and spiritual needs
of the student. The students are not
urged to transform their memberships
from their home town churches, but
to become affiliate members. Affiliate
membership implies no financial obli

the student to participate in the ac
tivities of, the church. Money to carry
on the functions of the church is allot
ted by the two state conferences.

"Pete" Murphy, legislator from Row
an county, was unable to attend the
Dean James Taylor of the North
Carolina College for Negroes spoke
primarily on three points, carefully
outlining each as he progressed. They
were the need for instruction of Ne
groes, the problem of state provision
of Negro education, and the method
through which state Negro 'education
can be established and maintained.
Reviewing the present situation as
to the number of fields open to the
Negro graduate student, the Negro
educator deplored the present facilities
available to Negro students. Not only
is the lack due to improper legislation
on the part of the assembly, he said,
but it is also due to the lack of men
capable , of instituting higher methods
and standards of education.
He stressed two. major, points in
stating that the state should provide
higher education for the Negroes. Dr.
Taylor explained that the equality of
educational rights pointed out in the
constitution was one reason and that
the inconsistency of having elemen
tary schools and not higher institu
tions was another.
In telling of, what can be done to
remedy the situation, he listed three
alternatives, subsidization to attend
other universities, graduate instruc
tion at one ortwo Negro colleges in
the state, or admission of Negroes to
Harry Comer, director of the
YMCA, flatly stated that he would
like to see Negro graduate students
in the University "by the beginning
of the spring quarter, or at least
shortly after that." He quickly modi
fied his statement by explaining that
it would be almost impossible under
"I have realized that the locus is
with the people. Unequivocally, I
would like to see students of both
colors, especially in the upper brack
ets, in the University," he said."
"We are not at that point now.
The atmosphere would be unwhole
some. - It would be extremely 'uncom
fortable for the Negro students at the
University. We have everyone mixed
in intramural activity until the cam
pus life is perhaps the most predomi
TO EASE SITUATION
He then proposed a plan whereby
the imniediate situation might be
eased. He said that he would like to
see a dean of graduate work " at the
North Carolina College for Negroes,
a " budget to take ' of and ' supplemen
tary professors from the University
and from Duke.
Dr. Nathaniel ' Dett, of Bennett col
lege in Greensboro, again stressed the
point that social association between
Negroes and whites at universities is
entirely plausible and possible.

Another unusual discovery was
made when the high school seniors
were divided into three groups. The
first group consisted of those who
were definitely going to college. The
second group contained those who were
undecided, and in the last group were
definitely not going to college.
It was found that in the two latter
groups there were two and one half
times as many scholarly students as
in the first "college" group. In view
of this fact, the survey suggested
that the colleges should seek out those
who were especially capable from
these two last groups and aid them in
continuing their education.
