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

fact that anti-Johnsonism is the South’s
expression of its opposition to the John
son policies as they pertain to Negroes
and the Negroes’ civil rights movement,
or the newest revolution, as it is so-often
called. 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

groes- Anti-Negroism is mirrored in An
ti-Johnsonism! Negroes must not be de
ceived. Johnson is hated because he dar

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

Milton “Bud” Hunter, 49,

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. Cabarrus St., a

told him, “111 Kill You.”
Hunter related how he start
in the store and noticed that
Baxter Squires, 53, was lidding
the employees, at bay with a
sawed-off double barreled, shot
gun. Hunter who works next
door, at the Dove Music Com

Dove Music Company and took
out the trusted 38-caiiber, Colt
left-hand-wheeler, stuck it into
his belt and made a rapid trip
to his truck, which was parked
along the east side of the ABC

Used Here
Miss Joyce Beverly Flipping,
1201 E. Lane St., reportedtolo
cal police that she was the vic
tim of one of the strangest
robberies ever committed in
Raleigh.
Police files disclosed that
Miss Flipping reported that on
Dec. 1, as she was going to
Kennedy’s Office Supply to get
some supplies for the office
of Mitchell & Murphy, she was
approached by what she termed
a colored man.
She is alleged to have told
police that the man asked her
to direct him to a Wilson Hotel.
Apparently not knowing the lo
cation of such a hotel, she says
she told him he must to have
been looking for the Andrew
Johnson Hotel, and told him
she would show him the way to
it, in view of the fact it was
on the way to where she was
going. The Kennedy Office Sup -
ply Company is at 228 S. Salis
bury St. and the Andrew John
son Hotel is on the corner of
Martin and Salisbury Sts.
The record did not disclose
whether she directed him to
the Andrew Johnson Hotel, or
not, but did show that she says
after she obtained the supplies,
the same man seemed to have
been waiting for her. She furth
er alleged that he walked back
up Salisbury Street with her to
where there was an old model
pink automobile parked.
She reported that he nudged
her into the parked car and
preceeded to ride around for
about one hour. During this
time she alleges that he made
her give him her watch, ring
and $25.00. Here is where the
matter becomes mystifying.

ROLLING FORK, M’ss.(N

headlights swept over the two
Negroes in the yard of the frame
house in the Mississippi Delta.
Then it roiled on down the
highway and turned around.
Mrs. Lucille Will is was walk
ing toward the house when it
approached again. Will McGee,
who had driven her home from
a visit with friends, stood be
side his truck.
"When it passed a second
time, a gun went off,” Mrs.
Willis said Tuesday in recount
ing her experience of Thanks

Her 13 year old daughter,
Jennie, had heard the truck
drive up and "poked/her head
out the door just as the gun
went off.
‘‘She came out on the porch
and screamed “ ‘l’ve been shot,’
I grabbed her and the blood
from her eye ran down my
hands,” said Mrs. Willis.
Jennie was taken to a hos
pital at Rolling Fork for treat
ment of bird shot wounds of the
eye and body. The body wounds
were superficial, but doctors
could not save her eye and It
was removed by a surgeon at
