EDITORIAL FEATURE The Thought Exchange By Gordon B. Hancock REFLECTION ON THE ELECTION Interpretation is quite as important as observation, if not more so, in given situations. The recent elections were matters of startling observations, but al so matters demanding studied interpre tations. Not only was it firmly estab lished that the nation’s two-party po litical system is very much alive—which in itself is a fine and salutory thing— but a hopeful sign that our vaunted de mocracy is not merely a forlorn dream. We can easily conceive the advantages which will accrue to the nation from the two-party system; but it is not so easy to see how it will affect the fortunes of the struggling Negroes, with minds stt on full-fledged citizenship in a country far from fully decided that he should en joy this citizenship. So, in summing up the results and trends as shown in the recent elections, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that on the whole, these were anti-Negro in their general impli cations. The strong under-current of an ti-John sonism was a stroke against the Johnson attempt to integrate the Negro. The strength of the anti-Johnsonism in the South, as shown in the South’s turn toward Republicanism, points up the law and order. The Southeastern Lawyers Association was formed In 1954 to consider special problems facing Negroes and members of minority groups intheadrninis "“t ration of justice in Southeas tern United States. Flowers address will high light the three day meeting which is placing special empha sis on legal services to the poor.

The swing away from the Demo cratic Party toward the Republican Par ty was largely an attempt to put brakes on The President’s civil rights train. The election results suggested a slow-down in the civil rights movement in general, and on every hand the Anti-Negro Southerners express the hope and joy that the coming Congress will see Presi dent Johnson slowed down in his legis lative ambitions which clearly include a fuller citizenship for the harrassed Ne groes- Anti-Negroism is mirrored in An ti-Johnsonism! Negroes must not be de ceived. Johnson is hated because he dar ed to include the Negro in his Great So ciety. In fact, the great jibes and jeers at the Great Society presuppose that such a Society will consist of men whose destinies will not be fixed by color, but by human worth. The Old South just cannot conceive of such and so they are against Johnson and his Great Society unto the bitter end, and so the South’s (Sec HmTORI/VU T*. 2) CABARRUS SLABCSTOREHELDUP Alert Music Box Service Man Foils Try BY ALEXANDER BARNES Milton “Bud” Hunter, 49, took detectives and the writer over the route he traveled Tues day afternoon after he gunned down one of the two white men who robbed a Wake County ABC Store, 130 E.
