Background o n Alger Hiss
speech at Princeton—the President
and trustees of Princeton Univer-
sity have profoundly deplored a
student organisation's invitation to
a convicted perjurer. But they
have formally defended the stu-
d.-nts' right to make their own
Hiss spoke before the f><Ml-student
membership of the Whig C'liosoph-
ic society—iind a limited number
of reporters or "The Meaning of
The only formal action against
his appearance Thursday night
was taken by the university's Ro-
i:.an Catholic organization which
invited Willald Kd wards uf the
Chicago Tribune to speak the night
hcfoie on "The Meaning of Alger
K.iuaitls said th. invitation was
"Princeton's business; it isn't
nnae." He upheld Hiss' ri^ht to
air his opinions but warned stu-
dents to take a grain of salt the
words of "u man convicted of ly-
ing to conceal complicity in Soviet
espionage" who has now chosen
"a career in which he instructs
the American people in the mean-
ing of our relations with the So-
Kdwards was applauded several
times during his speech.
The university's Roman Catho-
lic chaplain was jeered when he
repeated his earlier demands from
the pulpit that the university call
•iff the Hiss appearance. The Rev.
Hugh Halton .-aid it would be
I't inc.-ton's "darkest hour."
Th« student debating society
stirred up a debate apparently be-
yond its imagination by issuing
the invitation to Hiss—a former
State Department aide who w:if

When is a bed r.ot a bed? — When it's a sofa by day. In many homti
where space is limited, sleeping- units mifct convert to daytime
iiie at the stroke of a clock. With a smartly-styled cover, the modern
homemaker can transform her bed into a sofa and back again as quicklj
as Cinderella's coach was changed to a pumpkin.
Crocheted covers are versa-
tile accessories that assume a
bright, daytimt appearance
when sleeping space must re-
vert to sitting space. They can
be whisked otf the sofa, folded
up lor the night, and replaced
the next day looking as fresh
and neat as they did before.
Just a quick, smoothing out
with your hand puts them
right back in shape. Launder-
ing crocheted covers is almost
as easy. They will come smil-
ing clean after a simple wash-
ing in warm soap suds and a
good rinsimr. The.-e sofa-bed
covers, couch covers^ or bi'd-
spreads, whichever you wish to
call them, are most handsome
in conttmporsry settings when
made c;' the heavy crochet cot-
works up quickly. The woman who makes l.er ov. n has the
;e of chousing the right colors and i'..:s:£tu to fit la with her
bedspread with a MOTIF
Take the yawn out of your bad by covering it with a spread that's
full of a wake-up mood. This brilliant cover, made up of 8-inch square
motifs, was crocheted in delicious colors of yellow, cinnamon, ecru and
choroiate. Each block features the favorite popcorn stitch that gives
a modern, nubby texture to the entire spread. The motifs are sewed
together by working through the back loops of stitches. Reversible
pillow covers may be made to match by joining four blocks together
for each side. Full crocheting instructions may be obtained from the
N'eedlev.ork Department of this paper If you would like a copy, simply

MY STAND ON INTEGRATION
THE RACE I'KOBLEM: There is n" rju-e prol.lem. Tlie majority of While and Nefrm pe..ple wish to he left
alone. Stnial fusion must l>o left to time and man's destinv an«l the will of (rod. This unholy wedlock forced
nih>ii two different i"a<*es l>y north-eastern left-lwnk radicals will serve to no advantage, to the discomfort of
the South, and to the delight of Communists. Society must have a free choice m determining its social pattern.
The time and decision, if ever, will lie the result of philosophic thought resulting from social evolution and
Cod's will, and not a materialistic command by several jurists who have violated states rights in rendering
a decision that once again activates the world "nulifi "ation" and pits white man against black man while a
few evil men promulgate racial hatred to serve self-in erested groups.
The White jieople and the Colored people of the 17th Congressional District wish to lie left alone and resent
interference bv the Federal Government and intellectual "do gooders." This is a problem for 'lexas and
Texans In fact, there was no problem at all until outsiders, who would have us give up our states rights,
took it upon themselves to tell us through the Supreme Court how to run our affairs. How long are we
going to allow the Federal Government to usurp the power of the state? How long will it 1k> before the name
of a state will l e just a name—nothing else? I et us stop this ever increasing encroachment upon our indivi
dual freedom now at the polls. Tomorrow will be too'ate.
There arc no race problems in the 17th Congressional D strict and Texas. Interference by the Federal govern-
ment into the affairs of the people of Texas can mea i onlv one thing—Blood-shed, nullification and civil
war in the sense that political withdrawal from those w'to advocate a centralized government at the expense
of the people's freedom can no longer l>e considered re jresentatives of an America built for the people and
bv the people and governed by the states. Racial fraternization must I>e left up to the choice of the individual.
No man-made taw on God's earth can comi>el two raci il groups as a whole to immediately intermingle and
ioin each other in a fraternity of social relationship. T ic White jieople do not-j^sire this. 'I he Colored |>eople
do not desire this.
