ATLANTA U. HEAD AFRICAN PRINCE
URGES STUDENTS IS HEARD OVER
TO STAY IN DIXIE N. C. STATION
ATLANTA. Ga. -- The old-time
point of view that it is possible to
live apart nationally or that a na
tion can stay away from interna
tional affairs was discussed at
tygrehouse College Chapel on Fri
day by President Rufus E Clement
of Atlanta University, who traced
the failure of isolatronism to w ork
even as far back us the Middle Ages
The fact that the world today
small and interdependent has re
sulted in happenings in Georgia
affecting other part* Os the world,
and what happens eL.ewh-.re affect
ing Georgians, he said.
According to President Clement,
there is no point in running away
from the state or the country to
escape injustices because of race or
color or political beliefs. Me be
lieves there is a duty to remain tn
the South to help make this section
an ideal place in which to live.
That there is hope of attaining
this end and that t-u outlook is no'
altogether dark he cited as signs
of progress during the last decade
the lifting of voting restrictions in
the Democratic primaries, and the
recent decision handed down by
the Federal Court in Georgia, con
earning the equalising of teachers
salaries.
, The speaker also called attention
to the tar ward steps toward racial
freedom taken at ine World Coun
