TWUA Institute Ends Friday
After Busy Five-Day Confab
On National Union Troubles
Union Official Makes
Speech To Delegates
In Closing Session
The' Textile Workers Union of
America, CIO, ended its regional in
stitute being held in Graham Me
morial, on Friday night after a five
day session during which time the
delegates heard speeches by important
union officials and members of the
University of North Carolina faculty.
The institute was the first of its
kind ever held here, although union
institute meetings have been held in
other universities over the country.
Emil Reive, president of the TWUA
headed the list of union officials who
spoke to the gathering. President
Frank Graham of the University was
the leading non-union member to ap
pear before the delegates. Chief
among the other members of the Uni
versity faculty who spoke to the union
members were Phillips Russell, Dean
Carroll, Dean Robert House and Pro.
Harry D. Wolf.
A warning that the enemies of or
ganized labor were seeking to drive
a wedge between the union movement
and those who have been fighting for
their nation was issued by William
Pollock, general secretary treasurer
of the TWUA. Pollock spoke at the
closing session of the Training Insti
tute of the union Friday night.
"As a union," Pollock said, "we
must fight this effort by developing
" a program for the veteran which will
offset any action which may be taken.
We know the boys and girls in the
armed forces. They are our sons and
daughters, our brothers and sisters.
We know their needs and must help
The textile union official pointed out
that it had been at the insistence of
organized .labor that, the job security
provisions had been written into the
selective service law and that most
union contracts provided greater job
security for veterans than those pro
vided in the law.
"The veteran who goes into the army
without ever having held a job has
absolutely no job rights under the
law," Pollock said. "Yet the program
adopted by the Textile Workers Union
executive council would provide senior
ity for him equivalent to his years of
service in the armed forces, once he
has been hired.
to show in a small measure our appre
ciation for their sacrifice.
"We must recognize, however, that
the only way to assure jobs for vet
erans is to assure them for all. It is
impossible to. find an island of eco
nomic security for veterans while their
fathers and brothers are unemployed.
For this reason all of us must bend
every effort to assure a governmental

Owners Guilt Proven By
Tar Heel Investigation
Jack Lackey, chairman of the Tar Heel Editor's investigation committee,
brought charges which resulted in the conviction of the Campus Cafe of
ceiling price violations before the Chapel Hill Price Panel Tuesday night.
Clarence Heer, chairman of the Panel, stated that the Campus Cafe will be
given the maximum' fine for "a violation which is intentional or tho result
of indifference or extreme carelessness."
Lambros Andrews, manager of the
Campus Cafe, stated that several of
his waitresses were guilty of "mean
ness," and that all violations cited
against him were the result of either
waitresses who had a grudge against
the establishment or of mistakes on
the part of himself or his wife. An
drews insisted that all mistakes he
had made were emphatically not the
result of any intention on his part to
disobey the laws of the federal gov
ernment. Taking his testimony into
consideration, the Panel decided not
to send hi3 case to the District Of
fice, which might refer the matter to
a federal court. The punishment in
flicted upon the Campus Cafe is third

Rumor: Arboretum Was Established For Study Of Botany
And Beautihcatipn Of Campus; Biology Majors Deny Story
The Arboretum, contrary to the
tenets firmly held by Carolina men
and women, was established in 1903
from five acres of wasteland known
as "Governor Swain's cow pasture,"
for the dual purpose of beautification
of the academic scene and the further
ance of the study of botany on this
campus. (Please note, botany; not bi
ology.) Dr. William Chambers Coker,
forty-two years a member of the Uni
versity faculty and thirty-six years
the head of the botany department un
til his resignation in 1944, began de
veloping the Arboretum in 1905 with
a capital asset of $10 and the assist
ance of one negro. In those days the
sunny laws which couples seek of a
Sunday afternoon 'were marshes of
gum trees and bullrushes.
But Dr. Coker set to work. His phiT
losophy was that "The things that are
around us act upon us and elevate or
depress us according to their nature.
As Byron says, 'I live not in myself,
but I become a portion of that around
me'." And so we have the Arboretum
today with its five hundred1 varieties
of trees, plants, and shrubs to assim
ilate as we may as a scientific study
of plant life, as a poetic inspiration
concerning birds and bees and baby
breath, or as the scene of extra-curricular
activities in the field of l'amor.
Louis Graves, writing for the Chapel
Nice Place to Graze
Hill Weekly and speaking of the Ar
boretum, said, "The sum total of hap
piness that it has brought into the
lives of students, and dwellers in
Chapel Hill, and visitors is beyond all
calculation." (For who can calculate
the happiness of an evening alone with
one's beloved? Did we say. alone?)
In 1923 the Arboretum won national
fame. The Department of Agricul
ture judged the drug garden, located
on the south boundary, the sixth best
garden producing medicinal plants in
the country. There are only twenty
such gardens in the United States. It
serves as a source of the poison hem
lock, which took Socrates to his re
ward; the screaming mandrake, so
called because it is said to emit noise
under certain circumstances; the con-
nabis, which is used as an intoxicant
in India; and the jimson weed and yel
low jessamine, also poison and con
veniently located when Romeo tells
Juliet that he has met the genuine Ju
liet. But if things go smoothly, in
what we are convinced cannot be true
love, the Arboretum will provide
white bridal wreath for the wedding.
The Japanese quinces in the Arbor
etum are rumored to have been
brought back from the Orient by a
Carolina man who accompanied Com
modore Perry when he made the mis
take of establishing relations with the
Nips about the middle of the ninteenth
century. The exotic atmosphere is
further enhanced by deodars from In
dia, the photina from China, and the
ginkgo, also from China and sacred
there. It is a relic of pre-historic ages
and probably survived because it was
nursed at temple doors.
Oh yes, did you know that the Ar
boretum had a sub-tiling especially to
keep it damp enough for the plants.
Quit griping about it ! .
Both the Stwmt Audit Bill and the
Elections Bill Amendment were passed
in the Student Legislature meeting of
August 9. The bill to give the Uni
versity Veterans Association a rep
resentative in Student Legislature
was tabled indefinitely, since a cam
pus constitution, which will reorganize
the representation in legislature, is
The Student Audit Bill will require
that the Student Audit Board investi
gate the books and the last fiscal
statements of all campus fee-collecting
organizations. Within 45 days of
the investigation, the Board shall
make a complete report of its work
to the Student Legislature. This bill
wilffacilitate the writing of the cam
pus constitution by assembling in
formation as to how the fees of the
campus organizations are being spent.
The Elections Bill Amendment pro
vides that when any vacancy shall oc
cur in a campus office, an election for
that office shall be held within one
month unless there is an officer who by
custom fills the vacating office. In
which case, the officer next in succes
sion shall take the office and there
shall be an election held to fill the va
cancy thus made. This bill was passed
to prevent the occurrence of a con
troversial situation similar to that in
the recent Carolina Athletic Associa
tion presidental and vice-presidential
Plays By Osterhout,
Lipscomb, And Rich
Tryouts were held Friday to cast
three experimental plays which will
be produced by the Playmakers Aug
ust 23. The three plays chosen from
those submitted by the playwriting
class were "Prize Cake" by Barbara
Rich, "To Count Thirteen" by Marion
Lipscomb Miller, and a tentatively un
named play by Anne Osterhout.
These three will provide a balanced
bill for the performance. "Prize
Cake" is a comedy of gossip in a small
town; "To Count Thirteen" is a cos
tume Romance of the American revolu
tion; and Ann Osterhout's play con
cerns a Filipino and a truckdriver.
To Count Thirteen" will be directed
by Elizabeth Covington. The other
two plays will be directed by the au
thors. A list of actors for the produc
tions was not available in time for
this issue. The cast will be announced
in the next issue qf the Tar Heel.
Raleigh, August 10. The Ral
eigh district OPA office announced
today that the Marathon Sandwich
Shop, of Chapel Hill, has settled a
damage claim for sale of one car
ton of cigarettes at 5 cents over
the ceiling price by paying $25 to
the Treasurer of the United States.
Theodore S. Johnson, district
OPA director, said that Efthimios
Marikonkis, operator of the shop,
made the settlement in person. He
was charged with selling a carton
of cigarettes for $1.65 whereas his
maximum ceiling price is $1.60.
The case was referred to the en
forcement division of District
headquarters by the Chapel Hill
War . Price . and Ration Board after
Marikonkis refused to settle the
in four degrees of severity which the
OPA can inflict.
The charges resulted after several
months of investigation on the part
of the Tar Heel.
The first committee appointed by
the Tar Heel Editor failed to uncover
the evidence which wa3 rumored to
exist. The second committee, which
Lackey headed, approached the in
vestigation from another angle. The
first committee was headed by James
Sanford, managing editor, and con
sisted of Tom Corpening," Bill Korne
gay, Buddy Glenn, Banks Mebane,
Frederick Smetana, John Lampe,
Billings Fuess, Jimmy Wallace, Don
ald French, Bill Hight, and Betty Ann
Ragland. The first committee, how
ever, laid a valuable foundation for
the discovery by the second commit
tee. The second committee under
Lackey consisted of Howard Merry,
Ralph Potter, Duncan R. St. Clair,
not the manager of the Scuttlebutt,
and Rowena Willis.
Tar neel's Case

well backed by such documentary evi
dence as menus, signed sales checks,
and signed testimonies and reports.
Tar Heel witnesses were Mrs. Aliens

in the University; Robert Morrison,
