NEGRO SOUTH IS CONTENTED.
Moton Says Contact with White Peo
ple Has Advanced tho Race.
Chapel Hill, N. C., March 18.-Dr.
R. R. Moton, principal of Tuskegee
Institute, in an address to the stu
dents of the University of North Car
olina hero to-day, characterized so
cial equality between the races as a
myth, and said that virtually no
Southern negroes wanted it or even
thought about it.
"The negro race in the South has
advanced further than any similar
number of negroes anwhere on the
globe," Dr. Moton declared, "be
cause lt has had tho privilege of
coming in contact with the white
people of tho South.
"To the Southern white people we
owe all that wc have learned and all
that we have, and lt Is certainly to
them that we owe our advancement
"The solution of the problems of
the black race," continued Dr. Mo
ton, "lies in greater Industry, and
greater co-operation among negroes,
and hard, intelligent work. The ru
ral districts of tho South are the
best places for negroes to live. Thc
negro has shown that ho can farm
successfully, I hope more of them
will do lt in the future."
