MOTON PRAISES LIBERAL
TREND IN THE SOUTH
Outstripping North in Racial Adjust
ments, Tuskegee Head Tells New York
New York. .Tau. 13.—“ The South has
made better progress toward right race
relations than the North in the last ten
years. Things in the- North seem stand
ing' still by comparison,” declared Dr.
Robert R. Moton, principal of Tuskegee
Institute, to an audience of wealthy and
influential New Yorkers at the Town Hall
"Southern white women,” Dr. Moton
continued, “have passed resolutions de
claring theat they want no chivalry that’
is not also extended to colored women. It
is not hazardous any more for a white
man or woman to stand Up and say ‘I
am a friend of the Negro.’ A man who
got up in any influential gathering and
said that he did not believe in Negro ed
ucation would be hooted down.
“Deep down in the heart of the aver
age Southern Negro there is a genuine
appreciation of the White man, and deep
down in the heart of the white man
there is a genuine approbation of the
Negro. The Commission on Interracial
Co-opefntion, with headquarters 'in At
lanta, is loosening up in a most whole
some way this pend-up friendship which
often hitherto was not expressed in any
-concrete form. Men and women of both
(races are stitting down now talking out
their difficulties with a frank boss and
sympathy which yould have seemed im
possible ten years ago, with the result
that the situation is growing better ev
ery day. While there is room for im
provement, a few years ago I did not
think I would live to see sentiment on
the part of southern white people so
friendly in desire for justice and fair plai
along all lines of human endeavor as it is
Dr. Moton attached world-wide signifi
cance to America’s efforts for right ra
cial adjustment “I somehow think,” he
said, “that the way the race problem is
handled in America will determine the
method by which different races in other
parts of the world will adjust their re
lations, one to the other. We in Ameri
ca therefore have a large responsibility
and a concrete obligation.”
The meeting was in the interest of the
endowment campaign of Hampton and
Tuskegee Institutes and high tributes were
paid' to these institutions and their foun
ders “for the way they have preached
the dignity of labor, taught the Negro
respect for himself and shown the possi
bility for white and pluck to work to
