Southerners' Club

THE DEATH. of, thef Southerners' Club be-
fore-( it had officiatlly been born means

eou1l have bee n somethiiag new ,and very

self -enjoyment h.., grown to a Communist
plot, an orga :niztlionr designed to per-
lictutate ite~rmarriaget, or a. group designed
to iic(riminato against Negroes-accord -
ingf to whllich news, report you read or
hetaIr.
N ONE OF THIE students involved in the
club's organizationi is sure what hap-
pented. No one knows what the so-called
'suibversive" (and unfortunately widely pub-
licizech forces were. No one is sure how they
got started1. But the club's three officers
suddcEnl y found themselves involved in a
near- nationl1 controversy. And they could
only stan(l by and.Newttch the props get
kicked from under the club, letting the
structure topple down on their own heads,
The blame or even the cause for the series
of fantastic events :since Tuesday night can-
not be laid to one source.
The meeting was conducted intelligently
and calmly and was, as one member put
it, "dry as dust." "'We read, and approved
a constitution and elected officers--no
arguments, no debates-what could be
duller?" was his comment.
THE, CNDUT- AND result of the meet-
iiis Cam tonost is the revelation of
somerthl~ztinn at tely fine and wonderful. To
oter, who, A it ws haged cae to the
mee ting looking for discrimination and
readty to make trouble the result may have
been disappointing, as it undoubtedly was to
any who weire prepared to uphold white
suplrem.ac°ist teets. When the meeting end-

ed, it looked as though Inthe two (extremes
-the trouble-shooiting, ove--r. ealo' V refor
ers and 1the whiite S, riac,!i s h i <i 1 r
cast out in favcIorfla p t.o Mt1
friendship.
But Wednesday morning the entire
situation was reversed. Ne wspa).iper s
throughout the South. printed stories s o
gar-bled and misleadlingz, so libelous in some
cases, that one club mnember was worried
about thne Safety of his family. Others, felt
that therir own reputations and thevir famn-
ily prestige in the S outh wtas~ T4 irrarbly
damaged. How the(,papers got the stories
is not lknown--nor hether they v, erO
twisted unwittingly or with iitietitmal
malice.
Under the circumstances, the mrost cour-
ageous, and in the long run the most ex-
pedient thing to do would 1have been to
simply issue a statement preslentin, the realt
purposes of the club. The stories would heave
been denied, the publicity would have blown
over, and the club would have been success
fully conltinuedC(.
But the two young organizers of the club,
understandably frightened and confuseld by
what they had started, albeit with only the
purest motives, and besieged with social
pressure from all sides, felt that the best
solution was to withdraw the club's petition
for SAC recognition as quickly as possible.
Subsequently, they issued a state~meint to~
that effect, charing "deliberimtely inatro"-
duced subversive influences" as the de-
stroying element. The unofortunate word -
ing of the statermennt served only to further
complicate the situation I'mr other club
members who were not niotified of the
withdrawal until much later,
At an informal ineetine" at Tllie 001y,
Fr~iday night,, a new statement, was isstied
exempting fromn the ch arge "any persoun
who was present at the (previous) meeting."
The damage was done, however, and the
future of a Southerners' Club on this cam-
pus is dark. The genuine tragedy , h
situation sterns from the innocence of the
students involved, from thP terfyn(rai
zation that: vicious lies weretce e n
believed and from the qal[ihrun
indication of the i[ftluencethe Milvrnunci at
attitude in the South wields In even tliits

Democratizin'g Educati~on

TSHE LACK OF FUNDS even today is de-
privi' an appalling number of children
in 'the United States of their educational
rights.
Senator :flbert B. Thomas of Utalt has
reitrodulced at federal aid to education
bill in the 81st Congress. This, same bill
was reatdily ,passed by the Senate of the
prvviou, (oni'ss but was allowed to dice
iiinthe otse of 1Representatives last April.
The propos.eld imeasure involves the d is-
tributioii of 300 million dollars each year to
help states provide elementary and secon-
daary schools for all children. This would
insure the annual expenditure of no less
than 50 dollars for the education of every
chtild in the United States. This is, indeed,
a smnall amount. In fact, some educators
declare, that 200 dollars per child is the
smallest possible outlay if children are to
be properly prepared for citizenship in a
democracy.
Accor'ding to the termns of the bill, all
the states would share in the funds, but
the largest amounts would be allocated to
the poorer s t at-;. No state will receive less
than five dollars for each school child.
It sems paradoxical that the states which
spend the least money on public education
are actually devoting a much larger per-
centage of their state; income to schools.
But income and wealth are not distributed
evenly. The low average earnings of people
in the south naturally causes the amount
spent on the education of each child to be
much lower.

Some figures might illustrate this point
more clearly. It is this sharp contrast be-
tween the type of education available in
the wealthy states as compared with what
the less fortunate states trust put up with.
that makes federal am id to schools so nec-
essary.
In New Jersey 1.74 per , cntothe 1 hic itine
allows an expenditure of l idollars ct:i
Year for eachi school child. Onl tho otheri
hand, in Mississippi, the ise of nearly I~
per cent of the income on education results
in a total of 44 dollars spent per pupil. The
average for the United. States is 1:34 dollars,
but twenty states are below that level.
Should the children of these states suffer
just because they happened to be born inl
the wrong state?
The bill requires that the states coni-
tinue local and state support At present
levels. Assistance is given to a state after
it has provided two percent of its income
(or. 120 dollars per pupil) to educa lion.
Those who oppose federal aid to eduation
fear federal control of schlool a dministr'ation,
But the bill Specifically states that. control
of educational policies and school adminis-
tration shall continue to be the lirero at lye
of local and state governments. Federal
interference or control is prohibited.
If children in all sections of' the country
are to have an equal opportunity to receive
the proper kind of education and adequate
training so they may intelligently assume
the responsibilities of citizenship, the fed-
eral aid to education bill must be passed.

Sartcely hav~e the hackles on the ack

than th,, polsters are at it again. And to
add insult to injury, this time they are
lIsy locturing that same Republican party
which they lulled into such an enervating
slambier of aiffltiiation jst four months
a ga.
M r. lino R~oer, whose 37 per-cent pre-
diclioti on the Truman vote was one of the
biigg ?est eletion fizzles, has come upl with
somonz bj(ctive advice for Old Guard Repub-
lictam.;ini the( ci rrentiissue51of a nat ional

for the GOP", lE combines statistical proof
with canalytical reasoning (based on current
public o)iuion.t as the editor's note optimis-
tichally reassures 1us) to support Gov. Dewey's
inteiliicui that what the Repbican party
needs is ca ood five-cent liberal.
Th'lrough a synathesis of two-year oild
sur ey tfi oes and voting statistics from
the list election, Mr. Ropecr has discovered
that the great majority of Republicrlla
voters favor such former GOP anathema
as the TVA, low cost federal housing, the
extension of social' security benefits and
othier Ne 'A'healimea su'es.
As much a:. one may welcome this eti-

B~y SAMUEL GRAF'TON
irEOPEN re-establishment of the alli-
anc'e liciweeittde Republicans and the
soiitlicnii txt'niorats makes it folly to as-
sume that the Republicans will, at any time
in t lie prediict able ftut re, launch or support
any sig ni ficait derive on)it bhalf of civil lib-
erieis in the .South. The alliance with the
South,. now freshly rebuilt, represents the
G.O.P.'s last. remaining hope for power on
the national scene. T1o expect the Republi-
can party to kick out one of the two props
on which its power now tests is to credit it
with self-sacrificial tendencies of anl ex-
t.renmely unlikely sot.
TIhose R~epublicans who are chortling
abtlitt their party's amazing come-back
to Congressional power ater tie Novem-
ber election disaster have not, perhaps,,
traced out the meanings of that comeback,
or' its pI'0tle l~CconisequeceCs. TIhey are
talking about the miracle which sees the
party back in effective control of Congress
aft'tr losinig the election. But what is the
nature of that miracle? '
The ie aniuig of the miracle is that the
Republicans have found a substitute for
having a majority. The G.O.P. has accomn-
pisheci a tremendous shift between the

Eightieth and the Eighty-First Congt'esses
--operationally, it has given up whatever
'b a -e it had among the people, in exchange
for a pow;er. base in the poll-taxed boroughs
below Mason and Dixon's line.
In a wordc, the Solid South has replaced
Northern majorities in thne Republican pow-
ci' appa ratuts.
'R'is means that Re-publican power.
wh~lich once& rested on reality, now rests,
like Southerit power. on purely technical
siotuations. It nowv roes on rigid Senate
rides, on oc~ter°-represenztation of poll-taxed
c'oi'stitueieltic,, on the country's inalbility
to prov-ide those free elections in the'
Southi which ni-lht sweep away muclh of
the' So .thern representation in Congress
w~itti whose help the G~.O.P. is today deal-
ingstag'-niugblows to the re-elected
Preside nt.
And ibris means something else--that the
Repuiblic ans have practically given utp hope
oi \\ ining!_ the 1-r1esidency in the foresee-
Sablefuur.Thle damnage done to the party
iby the new Southern alliance amiong liberal,
trade u tnion, Negro and other groups in the
North must be (enormous. The incredulous
ceclam ation of Senator Lucas during the
{filibuster B lilt--'If the Republicans want
to c'ommi, political suicide, let theme do this!''
-_..is vecry signrificant. It is as if Republican
hope in reg ard to te White House had fi-
nally cra ckedl at the last election, and ats
if the party' novw['eels that its only chance

MATTER OF FACT:
Money Trouble

By JOSEPH1 anid STEWART ALSOP
'J'HE CONSERVATIVE coalitioni which
nlow cleai-ly coininaids an effective ma-
jo'lrity inugii :wl soon be faced withua
daneros coic'.Such men as Senator
Walter F,. George and Senatom' Rober-t A.
Taft, who bitterly oppose any tax increase.
miust either stamid forth incongruously as
the chamo~ens of deficit financing, or they
flitst fic cin e way really decisively to
r'educe :,.ov'r-nm era spending.
Tihe Budgeo't 111eaut estimates that with-
c ultnow t h ie minimum deficit will
iw in the newighborhood of six or seven
fwndre-d million dollars. In view of the
size of the budget and thme national debt,
thfis would be. no great shakes. But this
inimnum is based onm all sorts of assump-
tion, :osme of them demonstrabily falIse.
Th'le firs;t aatinipt ion is that, 'the national
int-omeD(' rill hocld tip. Even the mildest whis-
pci' of a rces o utldlknot-k all tihe esti-

mates of receilpts anti expenditures into a
cocked flat. Thae hiuge gox-erninenl; incomet
wvhich the Tr'easur-y is now t-olhcctiii' wtould
plummnet down'i. Al Ille sairnet' ime expenldi-
tures wo~uld shiarply increase.
'lhe secotnd asstumptiotn is thiat it w ill
be possible to fig-nt off such raid-.;on thet
Treasury as that embodied in Rep;:resentaa-
tive Jhmn Itanklu's bill fot vitter ans' pena-
sions, which wvould t-venttually cast tlme
unbelievable suma of tine hitaudcred aItmid
twenty-five billion dollar-s.
Third, it is virtually ecci'hain that Congtress
will authorize a Seventy-group Ai- Forae.
Last but not least, theire is tme rearimot-
ment of Westein Euro'dpe. f'iual estimastes of
the first year's cost sbt itmd be ready v-ery
Ishortly. The' figure is expecttt' to co' Lto
between a billion and a qiter i--andh aibillion
and a half dollai's.
Senator Taft has already pointedc to onte
amrea 1' reduction. Ilet'las said t hA t al-
!though he is inclined to tavor the ;atlantic
Pact, lhe is extremiely skeptical :about
European rearnawu'ut. And Seni.:tor
