Southern Voters Move
Toward Independence _
Gov. James f. Byrnes's statement at the
annual governors conference that he would still
support President Eisenhower if a Presidential
election were to be held now may not be typical
of the attitude of his fellow Southerners generally
or even of, those Southerners who supported the
Republican Presidential candidate in the last
election. But the South Carolina governor's
statement that he is going to be an independent
from now on does perhaps typify, the attitude of
many Southerners toward national politics.
The 1952 Presidential election, which saw
many of the Southern states cast their electoral
votes for a Republican candidate for the second
time since the Reconstruction Era, was hearalded
by some political observers as the beginning

of a two-party system in the South. The theory
was that Southerners, who had grown tired of
20 years of New Deal and Fair Deal rule and
had responded to the personal appeal of the
popular Republican candidate, would transfer
their political affections to a Republican Party
v.-hich promised greater consideration for the
Lights and privileges of the individual states.
Observers closer to the Southern scene have
always been wary of such an interpretation of
the last election results. It has never been clear
ho such diverse factors as the personal popu-
larity of the Republican candidate, dissatisfac-
tion with Democratic policies an dscandals, frus-
tration over the Korean war and fear for the con-
tinuation of segregation could provide a South-
ern two-party system.
Perhaps the most that could have been said
was that the 1952 election gave Southern Repub-
lication leaders a more favorable political atmos-
phere in which to build basic party strength
on the local and state levels. On the national
The actions of the Republican administra-
tion and the record of the national Democratic
Party on the segregation issue, a question which
bound Southerners to the Democrats for genera-
tions, indicate that Southerners have no avenue
of redress on this key question through either
of the two major political parties. With segrega-
tion thus, in a sense, isolated from national poli-
tics, a position of political independence has
been forced upon the Southern v6ter. This
development may well rebound to the interest
of the Republican Party by giving the conserva-
tive Southerner a greater and more independent
voice in determining the political philosophy
which dominates the federal government.

WSCS Meets For Bible
Study Monday at Church
The Woman's Society of Chris-
tian' Service of the First Methodist
Church met at the church Monday
afternoon at 3 p.m. for the con-
vention of the Bible Study, "Man
and God in the City."
Speakers for the'afternoon were
Mrs. Robert King and Mrs. L. J.
Mrs. King discussed the social
problems of the city and how the
church could help hear one ano-
ther's burden. She reminded the
audience of the poverty, disease,
delinquency and c .ime of the
slums; that" slums are expensive
and rob its-citizens of the way of
hope and ambition.
Miss Debbie Mouchette sang, "I
'Heard The Voice of Jesus iSay", a
very beautiful and appropriate
The second speaker of the after-
noon was Mrs. L. J.- Temple who
presented the chapter entitled "The
City of Wistful Pagans". She re-
minded thegroup that we were to
go' therefore and make disciples
of all people. She brought out the
fact that such a small per centage
of the citizens in the city and on
any church roll.
A discussion followed as to whe-
ther the people are irresponsive or
are they being neglected by the
The group was dismissed with
prayer. Sixteen members attended.

thee. Mr. Moody is quoted as say-
ing: "Sin will keep you from this
Book, and this Book will keep you
from sin." The Bible reveals sin.
It goes beyond that, however. An
-X-ray to show us our sin; it tells us
the cure for sin. It also gives us
wise counsel as to how to avoid
sin, and furnishes us the power to
be victorious. We can be washed
in the Word, and strengthened by
'Out of an abundance of material,
we have selections from Acts, 1
and 11 Timothy, and the' Book of
Hebrews, for our study.
Acts 17:10-11. When the breth-
ren sent Paul and Silas by night
they came ea Berea, and went into
a synagogue of the Jews. These
were "more noble" than the people
of Thessalonica in that they re-
ceived the word with all readiness
of mind and searched "the Scrip-
tures daily, whether these things
1 Timothy 4:13-16; II Timothy
1:5;2:15;3:14-17. Paul is exhorting
the young preacher, Timothy, to
give attendance to reading, exhor-
tation, an doctrine (teaching).
His "charge to the preacher" is
two-fold: (1) Take heed to thyself
and (2) and unto the doctrine, (to
thy teaching). Timothy was to keep
his own personal life above re-
proach, and center his preaching
in the Word of God.
Hebrews 4:12. This ,is a most
vivid picture of the Word of God.
It is "living and active"; it is not
a piece of dead literature. It has
been said that a book which lives
for twenty-five years is worth read-
ing. The Bible has not only lived
for these centuries; it will live for-
ever. The life and activity meant
here is the life and; activity of God
Himself. It is a Living Book be-
cause it Issthe Word of- the Living
