Speaking to the Dogsthorpe Road Ukrainian Club, city alderman Walter Setchfield said that, for the sake of immigrants' children, racial ghettoes in Peterborough must not be allowed to exist any longer. People of all races, colours and creeds must be inter-mixed and intermingled with city natives to prevent 'second-class citizens' in the next generation. He went on to say that different races should not be allowed to stick together in tight communities but must be scattered about the city. Time so often shows that ideals and realities rarely match.
