ThE South Won Friends In 1958
Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia has announced that he will
reintroduce in the coming session of Congress a bill to assist in
the voluntary relocation of the races for a "more equitable distri-
bution." The Senator's proposal seems worthy of serious consid-
eration in the new year because it is based on an intimate know-
ledge of the South.
It is one of many proposals, ranging from massive integra-
tion to armed revolt, that will be heard in the South in 1959.
This being the first day of that year, it seems a good time to review
the turmoil of 1958 and look ahead to see how 1959 might affect
the nation's most crucial domestic problem.
The real tragedy of the 1954 Supreme Court decision was
impressed upon the nation in 1958 with the closing of the public
schools in Little Rock, Norfolk, Charlottesville and Warren Coun-
ty, Va. On the one hand, the South showed its determination to
maintain its established way of life. On the other, it became a
costly display, especially for the thousands of students who have
missed a full semester of education.
The South increased the strength of its position last year
by winning friends throughout the nation. At year's end, there
seemed to be more sympathy for Southern customs, less demand
for forced integration. It must be admitted that the South's posi-
tion was not necessarily improved by the way our region conducted
itself as much as by other factors, such as alarming crime rates in
"Moderate" became a bad word in the South in 1958, es-
pecially for political leaders.
More school closings are almost a certainty in the SoutI
in 1959. Georgia faces immediate prospects of this delimma, as
does Alabama where Rev. Martin Luther King announced "an
all-out effort" for integration of Montgomery schools. Southern
defenses in the new year would appear to be likely to be modeled
after Alabama's pupil placement law, upheld in 1958 by the Su-
preme Court. But that would mean token integration if it is tc
work and many Southerners apparently would not accept that.
Thoughts will return in 1959 to the students of close
schools, the tragic victims of Supreme Court high handedness
Leaders will search diligently for ways to re-open the schools
within a framework of racial segregation. Perhaps they will find
it without seeing it crushed by federal troops (which will not ar-
rive as quickly in the year before a presidential election.)
On another subject, Sen. Russell said, "We have never beer
in a helpless or hopeless situation." This is true also of the
South. The situation was not hopeless in 1865 or 1958 and it
is even brighter in 1959, though it might be hard to convince some
students and parents in Little Rock and Norfolk.

Born of a feud over river commerce with Apalachi-
cola, Calhoun County was formed in 1838. Income is
derived from general farming, lumber and livestock.
"Raising" worms for fish bait has reached the proportion
of a major industry. Calhoun County is noted too, for its
tupelo honey, outstanding beef and dairy cattle business,
and profitable tung oil industry. The Dead Lakes and
picturesque Apalachicola River provide splendid hunting
and fishing. County seat is Blountstown, named after an
Indian chief and its first settler.
In progressive Calhoun County, and throughout
Florida, the United States Brewers Foundation works
constantly to assure the sale of beer and ale under
pleasant, orderly conditions. Believing that strict law
enforcement serves the best interest of the people of
Florida, the Foundation stresses close.cooperation with
the Armed Forces, law enforcement and governing offi-
cials in its continuing "self-regulation" program.
