TranscriptDO YOU BELIEVE IN BROTHERHOOD

This is National Brotherhood Week. As a student, a future citizen, a Christian, a lover of true democracy, how much does the word BROTHERHOOD mean to you?
Striking the keynote of the Christian principle, Dr. Douglas Lawson presented a stimulating address on THE PUTURE OF THE RACE PROBLEM at the Interracial banquet held lat night. The salient points of the address, which could serve to guide you in your on individual thinking on the problem, are: There is only one race: THE HUMAN RACE. Man sprang from one cradle of civilization, hence there is only one species of human beings. Through all ages and of whatsoever race, man has responded to the same impulses: desire for recognition, the same gamut of emotions, self expression, whether good or bad, and has lived to make ultimate the goal of HUMAN HAPPINESS. There will be no happiness for man unless he looks beyond his own selfish interests.
"There ate three possible solutions to the race problem, " said Dr. Lawson, "First, a majority rule subjugating a minority group; second, continue in a semi-democratic state; or, third, improve democracy through a long process of education given equally without discrimination."
In conclusion Dr. Lawson stated that America needs more outspoken people to bring about the democratic process. The solution lies in education. When we have a free and universal education, then, we can work out our mutual problems.
As students this is your problem. What can you do? First, examine your beliefs, bring them to light, analyze them, and if you are a true believer in democracy and the principle of brotherhood, then, the next step is to apply those beliefs. This can be your Philosophy:
We have tomorrow bright before us like a flame,
Yesterday a night-gone thing, a sun-down name;
And dawn today, Broad arch above the road we came.
We march. -Langston Hughes.
