Unsegregated Audience Shows
Real Meaning Of Democracy
While 13,000 fans were screaming in Memorial
Coliseum last Thursday night at the state basketball

tournament, progress was
American democracy in Memorial Hall where a
capacity crowd gathered to hear and honor a man
disregarding the color of his skin.
Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, director of the United Nations trusteeships, who identifies himself as an
"American Negro," gave a talk and led a discussion on world problems in another of the Blazer
lecture series. No attempt was made to segregate
whites and Negroes in the audience. It was the
largest audience of Negroes and whites ever gathered at the University.

It was a
sit among race and intelligently discuss world
problems without any signs of prejudice and discrimination. It was truly a meeting of Americans.
The crowd of more than 1,600 that filled the
Imilding represented the largest turnout for a
Blazer lecture. Many were turned away, and about
500 persons listened over a loudspeaker set up in
McVey Hall.
Such a gathering of whites and Negroes could
not have taken place on campus 20 or even 10 years
ago. Thursday night's meeting was so interesting



and accepted by all that few even realized the
significance of the event. It was defintely a historical mark of the University's progress towards
real Christian democracy and true Americanism.
Dr. Bunche first distinguished himself in international affairs in 194S as head of the United Nations mediation lxard in Palestine during the
conflict when he effected a truce between
the two waring factions. In 1947 he won the Nobel
Peace Award for his work in Palestine with the
Israeli and Arab forces, which he headed when
Count Bernadotte was slain.
The University and central Kentuckians should
be proud to have heard such a speaker and man as
Dr. Bunche, and they should be prouder that he
was received and accepted the way he was.
If we are going to get along and survive in this
world, it will take more than just talking about
democracy. We have to live it. We can't sit on
the sideline and expect someone else to carry out
the full meaning of democracy.
