Tharpe, Fowler; Smith, Roberts Get In Run-off Race


ETAOIN SHRDLU Sharks Start Season Here Tomorrow


by WES-LEY R. RAMSEY


And so the first round is over.
At the counting of the votes
Tuesday night, "Tater" (sweet
or otherwise) Poitevint received
a write-in for Mayor-Commis-
sioner after about 50 votes had
been cast. He yelled "Uncle Joe,
do you concede?" Joe Sharit,
enjoying a 50 to 1 lead decided
to gamble on the count and re-
main in the race.
Frank Smith, local furniture
tycoon polled a good vote on
his first try in city politics and
we predict that you will hear
more from him later.
In his close race, incumbent
Commissioner "Windy" Tharpe
was so nervous after the count
that he had to have help in writ-
ing down the totals.

We run up on Pete Comforter
at the fair the other night down-
ing hamburgers like he was star-
ved. Bill Smith, the plumber,
remarked that Pete was trying
to best Junior King for the ham-
burger eating championship.

We are proud of the vote that
was cast in the City Commission
race. Out of 1188 registered in
the city there were 851 ballots
cast. If you take into considera-
tion the number of residents on
the voting rolls that have moved
away, such as Tidewater people
and others, nearly a 90% ballot
was cast. That is good..
We would urie tJl as good
a' ballot be cast: at s:' second
primary next Tuesday. The sec-
ond is just as important, if not
more so, than the first primary.
Be there and vote, will you?

VOICE OF THE MULTITUDE
Zero Neale Hurston, a highly articulate Ne-
gro writer, who decided long ago that she would
have nothing to say about desegregation-by-law,
has found it impossible to keep silent on the
subject. She takes off on what has always seem-
ed to us the crucial point of the whole issue -
but which we have not brought up since any
comment would come more gracefully and far
more forcefully from a member of the black race
than from the white.
"The whole matter revolves around the self-
respect of my people," writes Miss Hurston in
The Orlando Sentinel. "How much satisfaction
can I get from a court order for somebody to
associate with me who does not wish me near
them? The American 'Indian has never been
spoken of as a minority and chiefly because
there is no whine in the Indian. Certainly he
fought, and valiantly for his lands and right-


hflly o. ButIt Is inconceivable of an Indian to
seek forcible association with anyone. His well-
known pride and self-respect would save him
from that. I take the Indian position."
In the matter of the educational rights of
Negro children in the South, Miss Hurston de-
nies that she is "one of those 'handkerchief-head
niggers' who bow low before the white men and
sell out my own people out of cowardice". If
negro schools in Florida were inadequate, or if
white schools possessed some advantage "impos-
sible to duplicate", she says, she would be the
first to insist on sharing. "But if there are ade-
quate Negro schools and prepared instructors
and instructions, then there is nothing different
but the presence of white people.
"For this reason, I regard the ruling of the
United States Supreme Court as insulting rather
than honoring my race." Miss Hurston derides
the long-held misconception that "there is no
greater delight to Negroes than physical associa-
tion with whites". She calls this the "doctrine
,of the white mare", explaining that "Those fa-
miliar with the habits of mules are aware that
any mule, if not restrained, will automatically
follow a white mare."
In Miss Hurson't opinion the segregation
issue was politically inspired and a grave mis-
take "just when the nation is exerting itself to
shake off the evils of Communist penetration".
She warns that "more important things" may lie
ahead and that the ruling may have been a trial
balloon. "If it goes off fairly well," she says,
a precedent has been established. Government
by fiat can.replace the Constitution."
It is refreshing indeed to have these views
from a Negro writer. Further, they will be
reassuring to those whites .who have always con-
sidered the Negro race to have been richly eii-
dowed with its own special attributes and a
race that should be as prideful as any other.
