In The Hell-Pit Of Asia
"Whereas to permit civilization to be destroyed by World
War 111 is utter insanity and unworthy of the men of this
century . . ." With this Senator Johnson of Colorado led
off with his motion "That it is the sense of the Senate" that
the United Nations call upon "all groups now engaged in
the War in Korea to cease fire and declare an armstice ef
fective at 4 a.m. (Korean time) June 25, 1951."
There are so few things that make sense in this period o
confused multiplicity that it becomes difficult to recognize
that which does. This motion would seem to make sense.
The war in Korea has been beneficial in one aspect, and
that is it tended to take this country out of a national and in
ternational periodic doze. But now the "police action" is a
. liability which might easily erupt into a world-wide confla
gration at any moment. Though this does not occur, it is
obvious that for every Chinese soldier we are killing in the
hell-pit of Asia, we push any possibility of Chinese friendship
farther and farther away, and toward Moscow this lost friend
The chances are against anything ever becoming of the
Johnson resolution. The 25th of June is but ten days away
and like the British at the Khyber Pass, we will probably
continue to shoot Orientals for sometime. It is regretable
Far Away From The Scene
Dr. Frank P. Graham, for nineteen years president of the
University, leaves soon for India where he will attempt to
mediate the dispute over Kashmir.
Observers have not been optimistic concerning the possi
bilities of success. They state that the Indian government
plans to treat him with a minimum of courtesy. It is also
stated by commentators in Pakistan that the government
there will have as little as possible to do with the mediation
To those of us in the Western Hemisphere, far awav from
the scene of disagreement, untouched by the many facts of
ji j t i i . -
me controversy, it would appear tnat both parties to the
dispute have a very healthy respect for the man who is hop
ing to settle it. Both seem unwilling to allow themselves any
but the smallest exposure to the Graham methods.
All of which, it seems to us, is a tribute to Frank Graham's
genius in solving problems. The Indians are intimately ac
quainted with his work in Indonesia; a problem, incidentally,
which was said to be Without solution.
If, and that is a big word; if Frank Graham fails to solve
the current mess, he will not have detracted from his reputa
tion. If he is successful, his place in history will be even more
secure among the peoples of the Far East.
We are very optimistic about the propects.

There are four Negro students now at the University.
They have fought a legal battle to get here. The law has
spoken- in their favor. The law served to admit them. At
that point the law stopped. It is at this same point that com
mon decency begins. Whatever our view happens to be on this
matter, the presence of Negro students here makes it neces
sary that all students exercise a certain minimum hospitality.
Representatives of the Graham
Memorial Student Union, YWCA,
and YMCA are combining efforts
to promote a .better and more
well-rounded Summer Activities
Program for the students.
Members of the steering com
mittee are Jim Rathburn of Gra
ham Memorial; Mr. Shotts and
Bob Johnson of the YMCA; Miss
Gay Currie and Mary Nell Bod
die of the YvVCA; Hay Jeffries,
Assistant Dean of Students, and
Bob Hennessee of the Daily Tar
Students interested in helping
with plans for any phase of the
summer activities, or having sug
gestions for other activities not
listed for the program are asked
to sign the clipboards located on
the Summer Activities billboards
in the lobbies of Graham Memo
rial and the "Y" building.
In addition to plans for offer
ing a wider variety of activities
chis summer, the committee has
greater student participation as
its main objective, according to
Jim Rathburn, chairman. The pro
gram is to include every phase
of campus life, and it is the wish
of the committee to employ even
more campus organizations in car
rying out its plans.
