Ill: KNOWS Jiggs: "Many a man has a talent for conversation which lie has had no opportunity of turning to account!” Jinks: “Umper-yes; I am mar ried myself.” PROBABLY WORTH IT A fellow who lived in an isolated region went to the city for the first time and returned wearing a ring containing a huge stone. The jewel ry dazzled the village bells and ex cited the envy of the other men, one of whom finally asked if it was a real diamond. ”\$:t'al. if it ain’t.” replied the wearer, "I’ve shore been skinnt out of lour bits!” The Hopewell News What Does Governor Mean By His Complete Surrender? We just cannot understand what has come over Governor Almond in recent months. We do not Know j what has so completely changed his attitude. Why did he pick Front Royal to shoot torpedoes at those localities that are determined to resist inte gration of their schools by closing down their public schools and oper ating private schools? Why did he pick this week to run up the white fla% and surrender completely to the tyranny of the Federal courts? We all know that we cannot se cede from the Union. We all know we cannot overthrow the Federal government. But we can resist the illegal, unconstitutional mandates of the Federal courts with the hope that sooner or later this nation will wake up and go back to the funda mentals of the great United States Constitution. Even the Warren Court can reverse itself under pres sure as is shown in the editorial below. In our book his speech to the graduates of the Warren County Educational Foundation high school at Front Royal was an abject sur j render. Governor Almond, in effect, | told the people of Virginia to go ahead and integrate their schools. | From fighting to preserve segre ! gation in our schools, the Governor is not fighting to "preserve" those schools by integrating them. Majority Not Ready We cannot believe that the ma jority of the white people of Vir | ginia are ready as yet to surrender completely. Governor Almond was the first to applaud the people of Warren County last September when they set up a private school. The Warren County Educational Foundation did a magnificent job during the past school year with this high school. But rifts have developed since the , General Assembly adopted the Per row plan, labeled “freedom of choice." In fact there was some dispute over whether or not to withdraw the invitation to Governor Almond (which was issued months a:to> after the widespread dissatisfaction with the Perrow plan, which was passed by such a small majority. But the invitation was renewed and now the Governor tries to wreck the plans of the majority of the people of Warren County to go ahead and develop a private school, rather than integrate their Warren County High School where for the past four months 21 colored pupils have been going to school in lonely splendor under the mandate of the Federal courts. How else could the people take his talk, except that he was advis ing them to go ahead and operate the Warren County High School on an integrated basis. Throws Monkey Wrench While the Governor did not men tion Prince Edward County his speech could only harm the efforts ’ of the good people down there to protect themselves and operate pri ‘ vate schools for their children. I; will tend to put a damper on the efforts of other localities. WV know it will not change the thinking of the courageous people of Prince Ed ward County and we can only hope that it will not affect the efforts in Wanen County to go ahead with private schools. In spite of what the Governor said, the majority of Virginians do not want to abandon public schools on a Statewide basis. We were under the impression that in adopt ing tlie Perrow Plan the Governor was trying to make it possible to keep public schools wherever possi ble and encourage private schools m those localities that would not integiate. Now he offers dire ’wonhecies of what will happen to Virginia and berates those who have battled so long and hard to preserve our “efficient" segregated school system. We ask Governor Almond: “What’s the deal?" There must be some reason for the Governor to change over com pletely. In January he was breath ing lire and brimstone against the Federal tyranny. A week later when the special session opened he was advocating the same school pro gram that Republican Ted Dalton had campaigned on and which the people of Virginia had overwhelm ingly rejected by electing J. Lind say Almond. Now he is apparently advocating a complete surrender to the NAACP and the Federal Tyranny. So we ask: “What was the Deal?" Meanwhile as the Farmville Her ald advises the people of Prince Ed ward to “Stand Steady," we advise the people ol Virginia to "Stand Steady." We must continue this fight for it is one of principle, of liberty, of justice and our rights as individuals and citizens of Virginia.
