:i THE CRIMINAL MUST GO
THe crusade which the Carolina Times h,as launched against
crime In this city is an honest effort to rid Durham of those
undesirable persons in our midst who make it impossible for de
cent p«)ple to live in i>eace and happiness.
In>this figrht we are askinir the support of every well-think
ing’ person in Durh^ and every agency that believes in law
and order. The criminal must be made to understand that he
is^ not respected, not w^anted and will not be tolerated to live
his nefarious life without bringing on his head the heaVy hand
of the law and the pressure, of dwent citizens.
Thieves, Jrilters, highwayman, nijghi prowlers and the like
h»ve got to understand that the lav? iii?! niust be obey
ed. They to uojsJerstand thiit^M«i^re considered a
menace to aoci^tjr.
In our effort to make Durham a bet#i‘ and safer place in
which to live, we are asking that every respectable citizen co-
operatfc with officers of the law and the courts to rid Darham
of its criminal eluent.
Crime infested dives, citizens who harbor criminals and re
fuse to cooi^rate with officers of the law in their efforts to ap
prehend them are just as great a menace to society as the crim-
inals themselves and would make this city better by going else-
Durham has several unsolved murders, it has had many
crime* of lesser nature to go unsolved merely because persons
who might have assisted officers in their attempt to run down
cr^k* refused to do so. This type of citizen may tl^nk he is
teing loyal while he is only furthering crime that makes the
lives ahd property of his friends and himself unsafe.
The Carolina Times wishes to thdnk those citizens and busi
ness i*stitutions who are cooperating with us in our war against
crim^ We promise that we will do our best to make Dur
ham » better and safer place in which to live. We promise to
keep ^p the bombardment until Durham becomes a city of law
and wder, rather than a city where criminals,, and crime are
considered a necessary evil.
T|^e News and Observer of Raleigh in an editorial last Mon
day, ^id atout all we could say about the brutal beating of a
Negri^ soldier in that city last week. We are reprinting the
editoAal in its entirety on this page and invite our readers to
read what we consider a most courageous stand taken by the
News and Observer.

“In the beginning, God.” These
are the first four words in the
Bible. “God firsft” i* a good
ntotto. Some of us make it y«ry
hard for the Almighty to do an^
thing for us becamse we are tl-
ways getting in liis way.
Tliere is one God. He 13 the
Tjord and Father of ua all. In
Him and through Him .we are,

God eallB men to be lights in
the world. Ju«t as He swiung the
stars in the heavens when the
world was young, so that men
might not stumble in the dark,

Comfort is one of the world’s
greatest needs, but it is one of
the world’s raresit gifts. When
sorrow enten^ your life the
world withdraws. It resigns. It
puts crape on the door. It adds
gloom to your heart. It doesn’t
know what to sayj it leaves you
alone. At lajuch an hour God
l^ocke at the door. He comes
into your life. He comforts your
soul. He wipes away all tears.
There can be no deafh- in God.

It was through these Greeks

He blamed the Christian for
the Church ’s Joss of power. He
said that we as Christians are
not willing to saerifice, we are
not willing to die for Christ.
In order for a man to have or
enjoy a higher life the pastor
gave three requisites. (I) Secri-

one would find his life he muist

Without wishing to raise the ire of Raleghites Who are wont
to keep up the rivalry between their city and Durham we point
with pardonable pride to Durham's police department, and are
quick to say we don't believe such a brutal affair as that which
happened in the capital city could happen here.
A casual observer of the type of men who compose the po-
hee dfejiartments of Durham and Raleigh will show that there
is no comparison betvdeen the two. Raleigh police, with few*
exceptions, 4»re aged, untidy in ijersonal appearance, blank in
the face and apparently broken down in character, while the
Durham police are just the opposite.
Durham's police department, streamlined some few years
»sro by its lamented Director of public safety, W. J. Croom
further modernized by its j)resent head. Major Roy L.
is far out in front when it comes to efficiency and
chsHteter. Durham policemen work on the theory of seeing
hoflr iiiuieh trouble they can keep people out of, rather than
iuMr inueh they can get them into.
The brutol beating of the Fort Bragg soldier, if unwar-
ttttUd. ic regretted by sensible white citizens in Raleigh, as
elsewhere. It is not a matter dt racial identity of the
or the section of the TOuntry from whence he comes.
