(An Editorial)
As the May 30th Primary approaches, there are no doujttt.
questions in the minds of the public about the candidates add
the issues being discussed. This editorial will treat some of these
questions.
The question of Negro candidates throughout the state, add
our two local candidates, why support them? This question is
not as easily answered by many, as those closer to the candi
dates would assume. In any event, it seems reasonable to believe
that the image of a Negro in office is not a mere matter of re
minding white people of our presence, but it also says we have
competent representation.
It says that there is someone who should know the trials add
tribulations of our Race. It says that there is someone who sees
out of the same eyes that we view oUr past, present, and future. It
points out to the office a Negro may be elected to, that he has
a responsibility to a particular segment. No matter how much sae
may preach about helping the other fellow, there is little doubt
in anybody's mind in this country that wc need to help our--
selves, plus we can use all of the help we can get. In fact, the
reason the white voter is now aware of placing Negroes in office
more than ever before is to place a part of the responsibility of
citizenship and government of the Negro more on his shoulders.

Race Strife
CHAPEL HILL Predicting tha
nation will be renewed racial strtfa
that will make previous troubles
look like a Sunday School, was top
NBC news commentator Richard
Harkness, who addresaed a Univer
sity o( North Carolina audience
here Sunday.
Harkness predicted the trou
ble would be centered in the
north and would come de
spite passage of the pending
, civil rights bill. “The taste of
victory may turn to the taate
of ashes” to many northern Ne
groes after the bill becomes law.
The speaker blamed the pre
! dieted strife on economics and in
equalities in the areas of Job Op
portunities and housing.
''The economics lot of the Negroes
will get a lot worse before It gets
better," Harkness stated.
In conclusion. Harkness warned,
'The final solution to racial pro
blems will not come on the picket
: lines or in the reactivation of the
Ku Klux Klan. The white man
must hurry and the Negro still
must have patience.'' The alter •
native, he declared, would be an
urchy.
