Segregation received a b'tter
sting here this week as the oldest
literary and debating society in
the South overwhelmingly passed
a bill calling for the repeal of all
North Carolina segregation laws,
after giving J. Kenneth Lee, Ne
gro law student, a standing ova
tion and the subsequent award
of "speaker of the evening."
Inx a speech described as "hy
far the best" of those heard, Lee
told the "Dialectic Senate Tuesday,
night that Negroes are not ask
ing for favors or handouts, but
for an opportunity to pull them
selves up from their present status
and suffer or profit, from their
efforts. - ,
He refuted most of the pro
segregation arguments general

volved in the repeal of such laws
which were advanced by op
ponents of the bill.
There would still be voluntary
segregation, Lee said, but not the
absolute legal and social segre
gation of today. -

laws would restore for all men
the democratic privilege of choos

Afterwards several members,"
originally' opponents of the bill,"
stated that their decision to vote
against segregation came only af

the oppressed shall lead . the
blind," one was heard to remark.
