Excerpt from 35th Annual Report of the American Civil Liberties Union: July 1, 1954 to June 30, 1955; Clearing the Main Channels SO we are always tempted to endanger ourselves by neglecting, or actively blocking, those three main channels Of political liberty. But that imperils not only the enjoyment of the civil liberties themselves, but also everything else. If we have freedom of inquiry and communi cation, fair procedures and equality before the law, we have the best Chance to achieve or defend or retrieve Other values. On the Other hand, even if we possess everything else our hearts' desire, but are losing those primary and central liberties, then we Stand in peril of losing all else too - sooner or later. Therefore, all of us would better keep clearing those main channels. How do we Americans stand in that essential work, as we end this year and look ahead? Well, our high courts and principal executive agencies are continuing to do a good job in clearing the main channel Of equality before the law. The Interstate Commerce Commission has ordered that racial segregation on interstate trains and buses, and in Station waiting rooms serving their passengers, must end by next January 10. But a terrifying lot of unfinished business will face us for a long time to come. Emmett Till is kidnapped and killed in Mississippi, neo-klan organizations exert various kinds of coercion On Negroes in many parts of the South; and, in the North-whose often holier-than thou bluff is being called by the rapid increase Of its Negro population discrimination in public housing takes on alarming proportions. Nor do we have all the time in the world to attend to this unfinished business; Africa and Arabia and Asia are looking ever more closely at us, and they hate much Of what they see.
