The inhospitality of the white
South to the Negro traveler has
been graphically reiterated
through the recent attacks on the
“freedom riders.” Although racial
extremists arc located primarily
in the Southern states, the Negro
tourist is subject to rejection in
all parts of the country. The 1961
'62 issue of GO —GUIDE TO
PLEASANT MOTORING has been
published to aid the Negro in
traveling through or vacationing
in any part of the country.
Reluctant to travel, many Ne
groes will either spend their en
tire vacations at home, or return
to the same place year after
year. “GO” can open many vistas
to the interested Negro traveler
as it includes listings of hotels,
motels, resorts and lodges, which
are off the beaten path, as well

WE ARE CHALLENGED: EARN SURVIVAL OR LOSE IT
The challenge is as old as time and as urgent as tomorrow's headlines. Peace or
War? What can I do about it?
Beneath the shadow of super bombs, caught in the clash of super powers, the
Individual most often feels frustrated, insignificant. He is a grain of sand in history's
hour glass. The sand moves, time runs out. lie is left helpless, impotent.
Or is he? Are any of us so imprisoned by our fate?
Only if we default. Only if we leave our fate to others: governments, statesmen,'
scientists, committees, institutions. Only if wo do not care enough, or Know enough,
to realize that these are valuable only as instruments of the public will. Only if we
fail to see that freedom is not a gift, or peace the absence of war, and that neither
Is the responsibility of the few?
Freedom and peace are each a task, hard and demanding of all. They are especially
demanding of a democracy because it is the exceptional society. It is ever under
exceptional attack from those who would deny man's freedom by war or any means.
To survive, a democracy must prove that it deserves to survive. Individuals must
prove it, as they have in the past. Individuals have changed history and altered
whole societies. Individual ideas have inspired the greatest sagas in the story of
man. The problems of peace and war, of disarmament and survival, may loom as

large as a mushroom cloud but they are smaller than an individual idea. The right
idea triggers the mightier explosion.
Support for such ideas must come from you. You as a working member of a working
Democracy are not insignificant but all powerful. What you think, what you do, how
much you care these decide. Not only between peace and war. But also the
problems of this twilight world of neither peace nor war. The problems of our free
society that demand exceptional attention today.
Give them your attention today. Begin by reading the new Report of the President**
Commission on National Goals. It draws guidelines for the nation during the critical
decade ahead. It maps the ways in which you can exert your personal power and
influence: at home, at work, with your family, neighbors, friends.
Both President Eisenhcwer and President Kennedy urge you to think about and
act upon this new Report. Make our national goals your personal
goals. Get a copy of the Report, entitled "Goals for Americans" at
your bookstore in either hardcover or )1 paperback. Or send for the
free digest version below. Know the challenges. Know how to meet
them. The knowledge gives you power to shape your own future
and the nation's fata. They are one and the same.
