SMASH THAT EGGf
The Democratic Way
With the election of several city councilmen approaching,
It ia very necessary that Negro voters begin to consider seriously
the type of men who now constitute the present city council,
■0 far as their attitude toward Negroes is concerned. Like
wise, as new candidates announce themselves for office it is
feecessary that they also be carefully studied for the same pur-
The recent survey of the Negro and white schools in Dur
ham will disclose vast differences in equipment and ,other fa-
ciliti^ that are necessary for the sucecssful operation of a stand
ard school system. All of these shortcomings listed against the
Negro schools are destructive, unhealthful and demoralizing.
The question of these inequalities ought to be placed squarely
up to the various members of the city council and the cendl-
dates seeking election. They ought to be ^pported or opposed
according to their attitude on these vital issues, and for no
In Charlotte, a Negro has already aniMUf^Q/^.ibis aandidacy
for the city council. While, as yet, no Negro has voiced his
intention of running for office here, there ought to be a move
ment started immediately to place*a membeir of the race on
the Board of Education. The only way such can be realized is
through obtaining enough liberal - minded members on the city*
eouncil to act favorably on the question.
It is foolish to even surmise that Negroes will continue to
be satisfied at paying taxes and shouldering other responsibili
ties of government without wanting representation in that gov-
•mment. It is the American way, and it is the natural reac
tion of all true American citizens.
There are many well qualified Negroes in this city who
have and are serving on boards with white people that are of
far more importance than the city council. They could do much
to adviae and work out solutions to the many proUems now
IlMing the board with regard to Negro Education. We think
this is far better and certainly less troublesome to both races
than inviting, the National Association for the Advancement
of Colored People to come in and institute legal action against
The appointment of a Negro representative on the Board
of Education is the fair way. It is the just way. Last of all,
it is the democratic way. . Negroes in Durham prefer that way,
•ad trust they will not be forced to seek a right^us adjust
ment of the issue in the courts.

As we praise or “bless” Him
we remember His benei'its, which
in this psalm are divided into
classes; the SAVING of th© soul,
and the satisfying of the soul.
