Common sense and co-operation w-re the key notes of all three talks. Dr. .Morten dismissed social equality ;is a myth. said that virtually no negroes wanted it or thought about ft. ami paid nearly nil his attention iti a pun tii-.il handling of present conditions. "The nemo lace in the South has advanced further than any similar number of negroes anywhere on the globe." he s-aid. "because it has had the privilege of coming into contact with the white people of the 8011th To the Southern white people we owe . our language and our religion, all that we have learned and all that we have advanced in civilization. "There is room for both races in the South. Greater industry. Greater co-operation anions negroes, and hard, intelligent work will be the salvation of the black race. The ru ral sections of the South are the best : places for lit groe to live. Negroes haw shown that they can farm suc cessfully. I hope none of them will do it in the future." To university students, l'r. Mor-, ton said frankly that in coming years he hoped they would help the black race even as Southern whites had alwavs helped. "I hope that you gentlemen will continue your , kindness and fairness toward an In ferior race. I hope that in the fu ture equality of industrial opportuni ty and absolute fairness and justness , before the law will always be ac corded the negroes." Dr. Morton, who came to Chapel I Hill under the auspices of the state ; department of education, said that the recent general assembly had set' a mark for all Southern stales In Its generosity toward the negro.
