dam was washed out several months ago, after a weak section

Our Court Edicts Would
Have Upset Lincoln
It was 152 years ago this week that Abraham Lincoln
was born in a log cabin on a farm in Hardin County, Ky., and
who-at the age of 52-finally succeeded in becoming our
16th President, only to see his term mark the most devastat-
ing era in American annals.
Ironically, Lincoln's birthday is being celebrated nation-
ally on the same day that Montgomery, Ala.-birthplace of
the Confederacy-begins a program commemorating the
week in which Jefferson Davis was inaugurated as President
of the Young Confederate nation 100 years ago. Many leg-
ends have been passed down since Lincoln's day. One of
the most fascinating, perhaps, was his romantic entanglement
with Ann Rutledge before he eventually married Mary Todd.
Many speeches and quotations have been credited to this
gaunt man who freed the Negro slaves while trying to restore
the soldiarity of the Union. His Gettysburg Address per-
haps is his most famous single speech and is read by every
school boy. There is one speech which Lincoln made, how-
ever, that is seldom brought to light. Roy P. Basler's "Col-
lected Works of Abraham Lincoln" includes this remark
from the Kentuckian:
"I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, i:
favor of bringing about in any way the social and political
equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor
ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Neg-
roes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to inter-marry
with white people, and I will say in addition to this that there
is a physical difference between the white and black races
which I believe will forever forbid the two races living toge-
ther on terms of social and political equality, and inasmuch
as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there
must be a position of superior and inferior, and I, as much
as any other man, am in favor of having the superior posi-
tion assigned to the white race."
What Lincoln was therefore against, the Supreme Court,
is for, and through its 1954 and subsequent edicts it hasI
brushed aside the South's heritages of tradition and custom
to grant the Negro not only rights of equality but those
which impinge upon our social and racial integrity, o G which
the Southerner so violently objects,

is out these cities will be regu-

the Air National Guard's heavy
transport squadrons, according
to Maj. Gen. Winston P. Wilson.
General Wilson, who serves
i the dual capacity as Dep-

the Bureau for

And, by this time next year,

include 15 long-range heavy

How do Active Air Force
generals feel about their Air

Lt. Gen. Joe W. Kelly, com-

Lt. Gen. Joseph H. Atkinson,
who heads the Air Defense
Command, reports that ADC
"must lean heavily on effective
utilization of our Air National
Guard interceptor squadrons."
And General Frank F.

Air Command, says: "There is
no second team in TAC. The
regular units, the Air National

because of a time clause.

that a member institution must

This is probably the most imitated Look
in automobiles today. Take the roofline,
for instance. (Most other cars have!) Yet
it looks best on its original setting, the
Ford Galaxie. The roof and all the rest
of the car were designed to go together.
This is what makes the Classic Ford Look.
Moreover, this car is as beautifully built
as it is beautifully shaped. As Ford takes
care of itself, it takes care of your budget.
See the roster at right, and you'll con-
dude: This is the Ford in your future.
