HANCOCK The violent Negro’s appeal to fire is one of the ugliest and most dangerous symptoms of the current interracial dis orders. The arson-minded Negro must be crushed and curbed in the interest of the national safety and Negro sur vival It is high time for leaders of the race to rise up against arson-minded Ne groes and condemrl them in no uncer tain terms. Arson is a threat to every body, friends as well as enemies, whites as well as Negroes, the “haves” as well as the “havenots.” Arsonists have no friends anywhere: and if there is a cer tain means of driving away every last friend of the Negro everywhere, arson is that means. If there is a sure way to consolidate the white race against the Negro race, arson is that way. Arson is dangerous and so is the arsonist and the sooner arsonism as an ideology is stamp ed out among rioting Negroes, the better for Negroes and everybody. The Negro who thinks that by applying the torch the twenty million Negroes can bring nearly 200,000,000 whites to their knees is a fool! And the Negro leaders who in culcate such notion in the unthinking Negro masses are knaves, and as such should be denounced; for they are in viting social and economic damnation upon the heads of the Negro millions. There is an overt anti-Negro element among whites who are abetted by mil lions of covert anti-Negro elements who are seeking and searching for an excuse to destroy the Negro for his very at tempt to pull into the mainstream of American citizenship. We have made startling advances since 1954 and the sentiment of the world has been going for us, but it is quite conceivable that the Negro arsonist can turn the stream of world sentiment against us in our just struggle for full citizenship. The Negro arsonist must be crushed or by his sense less appeal to fire he will crush the as pirations of a struggling people. The Negro leaders who are inclined to go slow on the denunciation of the arson minded Negro may live to regret it. The violence that has been injected into a non-violent adventure is unfortunate Soy Nude Men On Boulevard BY CHARLES R, JONES Three Negro female employ ees of the College lan, Western Boulevard, walking home after work Monday afternoon, almost became the unfortunate vic tims of two naked'men, appar ent sex fiends, who were In the company of a third Caucasian, fully dressed, according to re ports. Miss Jo Ann Burnett, of 823 S. Bloodworth Street, told De tective E. D.

J, H, Jackson, pastor of Chi cago’s Olivet Baptist church, last week was re-elected to an other term as president of the National Baptist Convention, U. S. A., Inc., at the denomina tion’s 86th annual session. Since he was first elected many years ago, Rev. Jackson has qutematlcally been returned to office each year. The denom ination claims over five mil lion members. The convention's theme was "United We Stand,” to empha size what Rev, Jackson claims should be the condition among all Americans, Negroes and whites. However, the minister's philosophy against demonstra tions and militancy In civil fights places him at odds with (See RE-ELECTED, P. 2) enough, but for this violence to take the form of arson is a form of racial suicide. There are many anti-Negro organiza tions in this country founded by the an ti-Negro whites, covert and overt. It hardly takes a prophet to see what is possible when these organizations con solidate and integrate. There is no surer means of hastening this consolidation and integration of the anti-Negro ele ments than the arsonist so evident in the current interracial disurbances. There can be but little doubt that someone in the role of leadership is putting arson in the minds of these crude arsonists who appear too invariably in the riot zones'. The leader or would-be-leader planting the arson suggestion is doing a damnable thing. It is high time that our pulpit and press cry out with a loud voice against the would-be Negro arson ist. People with homes and possessions are against arson and only the shiftless and irresponsible would resort to such specious means of trying to outsmart the white man. It cannot be done and the sooner the word is passed along that it cannot be done the sooner will our ar son-minded Negroes be checked. Arson is dangerous for everybody everywhere and all the time! Arson-mindedness must be stamped out and the sooner the better! The toe-hold that Virginia gave the Nazis a few years ago has become a foot-hold already; and already the Nazis though weak in numbers to date, are crying for Negro extermination; and nothing could give their anti-Negro bat tle-cry force and power more effectively than the arson-minded Negro. Quite as alarming as the adventure into arsonism and the appeal to fire is the silence of the Negro leaders on the horrible impli cations of arson. What the young Negro would-be arsonist is doing is explained by his leaderlessness. And although des perate now in his plight, he needs leaders who are courageous enough to disabuse his mind of the futility of an appeal to fire and flame. In a fight with fire, the odds are against the Negro and over whelmingly with the dominant white man. The arson-minded Negro is dan gerous!
