• Short Summary

    JAMES MEREDITH, THE 29-YEAR-OLD NEGRO WHO BECAME THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE MISSISSIPPI UNIVERSITY INTEGRATION DISPUTE LAST YEAR, ANNOUNCED LAST MONDAY THAT HE WOULD NOT REGISTER FOR CLASSES NEXT TERM.

  • Description


    "WE ARE ENGAGED IN A WAR, A BITTER WAR - FOR THE QUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL CITIZENS. THE ENEMY IS DETERMINED, RESOURCEFUL AND UNTRUSTWORTHY. THERE ARE NO RULES OF WAR FOR WHICH HE HAS RESPECT. SOME STANDARD MUST BE SET; SOME PATTERN MUST BE ESTABLISHED, SO THAT THOSE WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR THE EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY, AND THOSE WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO OPPRESS, CAN CLASH IN A STRUGGLE WITHOUT DISASTER FALLING UPON EITHER GROUP".
