C, Sept. 27 Chair man Roy L. Thompson of the Price Decontrol Board said tonight that he expects the meat famine to last for some time and that the board can do nothing about it until late in Novem ber or December unless OPA or the Agriculture department intervenes be fore then. He conceded in an interview that the board's decision to restore ceilings on livestock and meat was becoming increasingly unpopular with Congress and many citizens who have had few beefsteaks since controls were rein stated on August 20. But he said that under the OPA law the board had no alternative but to act as it did and had no intimation at the time that cattle owners would re fuse to move their livestock to market at OPA ceiling prices. Thompson said that withholding was the primary reason for the current meatshortage and predicted that "it would be some time" before butcher's stocks would be back to normal. His statement was at variance with the optimistic view taken by Presi dent Truman yesterday in declaring that price controls were not to blame for the shortage and that anyway more and better beef would be on sale in the near future. Thompson said the end of the meat famine depends upon two factors: 1. how much cattle is going into the feed lot, 2. how soon the cattle would be moved from the feed lot to the mar ket.

Double-Threat Attack In Justice and Rodgers, Carolina will unveil the makings of a great running and passing attack, both men being threats either way. Justice will be used mainly for "spot" service, es- pecially as a breakaway runner, while Rodgers, outstanding during practice sessions, will handle much of the buck- ing and spinning assignments in ad dition to the aerial duties.

Coker, botany professor, secured permission in 1903 to begin a University arboretum he started with $10, a negro helper and a lowland cbw pasture. Today this five-acre tract of land not only serves as an ideal haven for warm weather roman tics, but it also is rated by the U. S. Department of Agriculture as one of the ten best gardens produc-3- ing medicinal plants in the nation. Forty-three years ago the land where the arboretum now stands was a, swampy pasture unfit for agricul ture and a serious blemish to the beauty of the campus. Dr. Coker, pri marily interested in botanical study, was also intent upon improving the campus scenically and once permis sion was granted began the tremen dous job of sub-tile draining.
