Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 7. 1967.

To resign

To resign


The State Legislature of Alabama has called for the resignation of the president of the University (Dr. Frank Rose), a vigorous advocate of integration, and has branded the university professors as "intellectual morons."

Four years ago, Governor Wallace defied Federal marshals and refused the admission of two Negro students. Now the number of Negroes on campus is 298, but Mrs. Lurleen Wallace has succeeded her husband as Governor and holds the same segregationalist views.

Last month she called on all educational leaders in the State to defy the Federal Court order for racial integration and only Dr. Rose refused to sign. This has provoked student demonstrations, for once in favour of the law of the land.

But the former Governor, Mr. Wallace, has remained silent on the whole matter and although Dr. Rose's position is very precarious, as the State controls the allocation of university funds, indications are that this could mean the end of the Deep South segregation policy.

A cynic—a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing—Wilde.

Irrationally held truths may be more harmful than reasoned errors.—T. H. Huxley.

There is nothing the matter with Americans except their ideals. The real American is all right; it is the ideal American who is all wrong.— Chesterton.
