Around The World
With ELLEN WILLIAMS
Despite Eisenhower’s opposition
against a general excise tax cut,
the House ha^ passed a bill trim
ming 912 million dollars a year
from excise taxes. Eisenhower
advocates a balancing of the bud
get and contends that if this is to
be done, the Treasury cannot stand
these tax cuts provided in the I
bill. The bill has been sent to the 1
F M C Campus Elections Completed
On April 2 in Charlotte, Adlai
Stevenson will speak to Demo
cratic leaders who will gather for
a state-wide party rally in the
Armory Auditorium. Stevenson
is visiting Mrs. Ernest Ives, his
sister, in Southern Pines. Steven
son’s address will be carried over

Eisenhower has said that the
U. S. will not go to war without
Congressional consent. This state
ment was prompted by the unrest
of many due to U. S. technician’s
being sent to Indochina. In other
words Eisenhower means there
will not be another Korea.

Repairs Of Watkins
The Cabinet has had high hopes
all year of repairing Watkins Hall,
which is used for various religi
ous meetings. It has been found
that help can be obtained to re
pair Watkins from the Gracious
Living Fund, so maybe the dream
will soon comb true. It was de
cided that gray will be the best
color to paint the Hall. Two floor
lamps and a record player are be
ing wished for perhaps a new
sofa. The drapes will be cleaned
and the floor waxed, which will
help the looks of Watkins a great
deal. The Student Body, as a part
of the Christian Association, is
urged to co-operate with the Cab
inet in this fine project.
Draw Thou my soul, O Christ,
Closer to Thine;
Breathe into every wish
Thy wiU divine;
Raised My low self above,
Won by Thy deathless love.
Ever, O Christ, through mine
Let Thy life shine.

also can hardly wait to get back
to my kitchen.”
Camilla Wicks uses as her in
strument a Stradaveri (Duke of
Cambridge) violin made in 1775.
This violin, as is true to form to
