ABSTRACT
This article presents developments related to politics and society. The district of Columbia is on a deadly challenge to the whole South. The ratio of African Americans in the district is 35 percent compared to only 22 percent in Florida. Integration has forced the city to face the fact that African American schools have been neglected. The truth is integration hasn't actually changed things much in Washington because White communities still have almost all-White schools and African American communities almost all-African American. Political candidate Estes Kefauver gives his public simple short words in simple short sentences delivered with an air of diffident understatement in a calm, level voice.
