C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 1945 NUMBER SW 76 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. Pollock Speaks 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 achieve them." 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. Veterans' Jobs "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 See TWUA, page U.

Thursday night Professor Giduz, director of the establishment, had a final meeting with the students. At this time prizes consisting of French books and contributed by the French Embassy for this purpose were awarded to those showing the greatest improvement during the term. Miss Eleanor Bearden of Lawrence ville, Ga., received first prize, Mrs. John E. Bradley of Efland, N. C, won second prize, and Miss Sophia Lanneau of Wake Forest was given the third award. Last Saturday night the members of the French House entertained, with a banquet at ithe Carolina Inn for the French officers, later returning to La Maison Francaise for song and dance. The following night Mademoiselle Co- ette Dubuisson, representative of the French government, spoke to the members and their guests, Phillip de Gaulle among them, of her activities In the French underground during the war. A reception was new m ner honor afterwards. On Tuesday night Dr. U. T. Holmes spoke on Old Paris, showing maps and engravings dating as far back as the thirteenth century. Dr. Holmes cli maxed the evening by joining Mr. Nor man of Queens College, Charlotte, in a French rendition of the first act of Faust, accompanied by Miss Allen on the piano. The organization was the guest of the French Department at Duke on Wednesday afternoon and again Miss Dubuisson discussed her activities as a member of the French resistance.

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 Atomic Power Topic For IRC On Monday night at seven-fifteen in the Baby Lounge of Graham Memor ial the IRC will discuss "Atomic En ergy and International Peace." Mr. James Wallace will make a short in troductory talk on the nature "of atom ic energy and its probable effects on international life. Mr. Wallace is qualified to conduct the discussion of this vitally important topic by his attainment of Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Physics and Math ematics as well as by his extensive knowledge of the Theories of Atomic Energy and of some of the research in the field. The meeting will be open to the pub lic and all those interested in discuss ing this epoch-making development are invited to attend. 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 mmmmm 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 ! . BUlsTPassed By Solons On Thursday 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 being drafted. 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 election. Playmakers Choose 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 claim. 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 ine lar lieel presented its case well backed by such documentary evi dence as menus, signed sales checks, and signed testimonies and reports. Tar Heel witnesses were Mrs. Aliens Douglas and Miss Lorene Hamilton, waitresses in the Campus Cafe; Ralph Potter and Duncan St. Clair, students in the University; Robert Morrison, Tar Heel Editor; Charles E. RatclifF, USMRC, a Marine studying at the See CAMPUS CAFE, page 4.
