The fact that Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. had a near-capacity house here
on the campus at N. C. State Univer
sity's William Neal Reynold’s Coliseum
last Sunday afternoon attests to his abil
ity to atract the American public. It
would take a basketball game between
N. C. State University and one of the
ACC teams, during a hot basketball sea
son, to bring more patrons to a Coli
seum attraction, or one of the country’s
most noted politicians or heroes.
Dr. King’s magic is unquestionably
compelling. His words and thoughts,
along with his courage to stand by his
convictions, place him high up on the
ladder of those who are carving the
American social, political, economic and
religious ideal,
It was fitting that the Southern Chris
tian Leadership Conference and he Ne
gro Heritage Library of North Carolina
sponsor this world renown Negro.
Those who agree with Dr. King’s phi
losophy of non-violence as a means to
complete citizenship know that there
would be no need for him or anyone
else to contend for another’s right should
governments, agencies, politicians and
policy-makers learn to respect every
body’s right as a human being no mat
ter what his station or color may be. As
long as some people believe there is need
to deny others in order that they might
stay on the top, there will be trouble
In urging the broadest possble corpo
rate support of education, the president
of a major oil company (Standard Oil
Company of Indiana) declares: “The
. free university and a free economic sys
tem are two vital elements in the foun
dation of a free society ... In concert,
they have been instrumental in giving
us a civilization in which individual ac
cess to ideas and material well-being are
unmatched. If we are to maintain a free
society, we must take care to protect the
freedom of our leadership universities.”
According to a late survey, business

China now has 100 million more peo
ple to feed than she had before the com
munists took over the country. In the
20 years they have been in control the
communists have tried to control the
farmers like Russia does. The result is
that the Chinese farmers are now pro

is the reason China is having to buy
wheat from Canada.”

credited with having performed over
30,000 oprations during his career.

and a need for hundreds of Dr. Kings to
preach and promote a gospel of fair play
and true democracy for everyone.
America is fortunate to have a person
of Dr. King’s calibre to chide its con
science about the wrongs perpetrated on
those who have suffered sub-standard
living and thinking for so many years
that many believe it should be the lot
of the unfortunate sub-standard-living
whites and Negroes. If we had no rules
and regulations to go by, our society
would be akin to heathens living in mid
eival times. If we had no management
or labor unions representing a particular
group, their lots would be jeopardized.
Likewise, all segments in America must
be on the alert to be certain that no one
or movement usurps their entitled rights
under the law.
Dr. King certainly preaches and prac
tices a gospel for all people. His interest
in the Negro in particular is natural and
understandable. The clarity of his non
violent movement should make no one
angry unless there is motive of denial of
one’s rights.
Raleigh was indeed fortunate to have
had such a luminary include it in his
busy schedule. We hope his influence
will remain among us to a point that
there will be no need for any kind of
movement—-violent or non-violent . . .
and that Dr. King will not have to re
turn to lead a march for our benefit.
corporations contributed some $174 mil

1964-65 academic year. Including such

that education should be supported pri
marily by tax-derived government

government pays for, it controls. Volun

sential to freedom.

Dr. King said the Negro’s
progress in the struggle for
racial equality has progressed,
but urged him to continue by
peaceful means “across the
border to the promised land”.
He stressed the fact that “we

but we have a long way to go
before freedom is a reality.”
