C, Associated St mm cinryr Flag Finally Furled Old Glory From Post By Andy Taylor Old Glory finally came down, but not without a fight. Dirty, tattered and torn, the stubborn set of Stars and Stripes that has flown for some four weeks over the Chapel Hill Post Office was brought to earth yesterday afternoon. The flag was hoisted as usual at fi:30 in the morning about a month ago no one can re call the exact date. But when the time came that evening to pull it down. Old Glory turned the tallies on its keepers. The rope had slipped the iyilky!at the top of the GO-foot pole and the flag wouldn't budge. Nor would it respond to any amount of coaxing.

Gray warned, however, that "the importance - of military strength cannot be discounted." Gray. now president of the Con solidated 'University of North Carolina, made the statements in a talk to the Raleigh Rotary Club. Gray discussed certain phases of the report he made last fall to president Truman on foreign economic policy. Gray served for eight months as special assistant to the President after resigning as Secretary of the Army. The report, Gray declared, "is based on a recognition that a sus tained security effort will be necessary over a period of years. American policies in the econom ic, political, v military and in formational fields must all play an essential role if any just and lasting peace is to be established."

On March 1 the team will go to Hickory, for the South Atlantic Forensic Tournament. Today at 4 o'clock the Debate Council will hold a meeting in Roland Parker Lounge at Gra ham Memorial.
