Capitol Stret The contents of your most reSalem, Oregon cent issue establishes that the By Galven Irby There is on old saying, "Get wisdom, get knowledge, but obove all things get an understanding." After one hundred years of roce relations in Oregon what understanding do we ~ave of each other? A means of determining the errectiveness of thts question is to analyze and study the community in wh.ich .we li:'e. However a certain amount of judgment must be applied m amving at any conclusion. For community conditions an? resources vary widely, but with common sense and understandmg we ~an reach o reasonably accurate conclusion as to what our community believes. . In any given community there are a n~mber of .misnomer 1de~s as to what the different racial groups beheve or thmk. Portland 1s no different than any other community in this respect. Here in Portland it is an honest belier that certain minority groups will not cooperate ,...,ith government agencies in promoting a clean and decent community. They believe that these groups cam the greater part of their livelihood from some type of criminal activity. This belief is far from being true. I will point out the fallacy of this a little later. It is believed also that certain racial groups are seeking preferential treatment in their strive for progress. It is also a belief that certain racial groups will bring down property valuation by the mere fact that they happen to Jive in- the neighborhood. It is the belief of certain racial groups that mere belonging in itself will keep them from getting proper police protection within the community.

Such processes of relocation in the past have given rise to the racial concentrations as we now know them. In the past unscrupulous real estate "operators" have used such situations to unload numerous "white elephants" on unsuspecting buyers who were not cautious in making such a long term investment. There are other things also to be considered in this operation. Since it has become apparent that the route of the freeway has been determined, the acquisition of right-of-way property will be the next step. I ask you residents who are being displaced to seek the ultimate value possible for your property. since such value will represent the foundation of your relocation. The Minnesota Route will encompass proj;°erties that will have tremendous values and there will be that tendency to "cut comers" to save money wherever possible. In my opinion such "corners" will be attempted in acquiring right-of-way property in the Albina District. If such problems should arise in your case seek the advice of someone qualified to give you the necessary information you desire. You have et your disposal the services of the Portland Development Commission. This agency has listings in various parts of the city for the benefit of persons being displaced from the Freeway area. You may also seek the aid of the Urban League in the event that you encounter discrimination in your efforts to relocate. Mr. John Holley of the League is ready, willing, and capable to assist you should the need arise that he do so. In summary let me say that this is an important step for all who Wlll be affected by this relocation. Let your judgment be sound in your selection of your new home. Do not let this chance to live in a better neighborhood slip through your fingers. Once you are relocated bend all of your efforts toward making your neighborhood the very best possible. Remember once more you will be under the microscope of public opinion. Your success or failure to meet the test Wlll be up to you.
