his ROTC officer's uniform and

Jikely subject, wasn't jt? For a

picked tho day of days, too, for
his exit Fourth of July, no less.
And the guy was fretting his

in vain as he waited for the army
to a'oaspt him as seaond lieuten

St Army reservo corps, but no

The truth of the "troublesome
problem" of minoritios is that it is
a problem of tho majority. By the
majority it was created or allowed
to be created, and only by tho col
lective heart and mind of tho ma
jority will it bo solved. Tho good
people of our majority arc begin
ning to realize that while the bur
den of the hardships fall upon the
minorities, the burden of the dis
grace falls upon the whole group.
For democracy to damn racial
prejudice abroad and to condone it
at home is at best an adventure in
astigmatism, reducing the categori
cal announcements of tho "free
doms" to a dialctic of delusion.

into our lines.
"He was also able to see a place
