'49 NEW YORK VISIT by 30,000 Tar Heels had such a great
effect on yankees that just about every jalopy and many new
cars display the "Stars and Bars". Shown here is Ann McGuire
of Jersey City, N. J. with the Confederate symbol which she has
just attached to the aerial of her convertible.

Jersey City, N. J. The recent
popularity of the Confederate
flag in these parts of the country
may be due to the visit of some
30,000 Carolina fans who saw the
Notre Dame game in New York
City two years ago. .
At least that's what Arthur D.
Mackie, former sports editor of
the Greensboro Daily News and
now associate editor of the Jersey
Journal here, thinks. "When the
Tar Heels came, they brought the
Dixie flag with them. Since then,
other groups have brought the
flag to this section and. new the
"Stars and Bars" has caught the
fancy of teenagers," he asserted.
Mackie refers to the jalopies
and brand new convertibles
around town and even other sec
tions of New Jersey and New
York where the Stars and Bars

can be seen, displayed prominent

getting so a teenager without his
Rebel flag can't feel secure in
his Model A.
Other observers believe that
the Southern Shriners in New
York during the summer-helped
popularize the flags. They carried
them around and even handed
out Confederate money. Southern
schools playing "Northern collegi
ate teams shower stadiums with
the bright red, white, and blue
colors and the thirteen stars.
Local dealers have had a record
turnover in the sale of the flags.
Some think the banner is just like
the fox tail fad which seized
youngsters a few years ago, but
other merchants hail the extra
business as a good thing. .
Three mayors from this area,
however, have voiced their dis
approval of the fad. An organiza
tion called the Sons of the Union
Veterans thinks the display of the
Rebel flag is "subversive".
One mayor, Michael U. De Vita,
Patterson, N. J., declared, "The
Confederate flag will never fly
over our City Hall." De Vita was
outspoken in his criticism of the
Dixiecrat campaign in '48. The
mavor of New Jersey's largest
city, Mayor Ralph Villani, New
ark, commented, "That war was
over in 1865 and we shouldn't do
anything to stir feelings like that
again." Jersey City's deputy ma
yor Bill Flannigan, said, "We'd
rather see more respect encour
aged for our Stars and Stripes."
In spite of the mior contro
versy, the flags continue to be
displayed. And the glorious sym
laol cf a lost cause is perpetuated
In a former enemy's territory.

University Women Meet
The American Association of
University Women meets tonight
at 8 o'clock at Mrs. Gordon Gray's,
402 E. Franklin St. -
Edwin S. Lanier, mayor of
Chapel Hill and director of Cen
tral Records and student aid at
the University, has charged that
efforts are being made to pay off
the. State Baptist Convention's
half -million dollar debt by drast
ically cutting church funds going
to Baptist orphans.
Lanier, trustee of the Baptist
Orphanage, blamed the accumu
lation of the debt to "letting min
isters run the financial affairs of
the Convention. He particularly
accused the recommendations of
the Baptist, Committee of Nine
Lanier says that the Committee
wants to take 100,000 a year
away from the Baptist Orphanage
to pay overall convention debts
accumulated since 1944. AGeord
in to Lanier, this slash in the
Baptist Orphanage budget, would
turn that institution back 40
years. ; .
"This suggestion by the Com
mittee is really pathetic when one
recalls that the Orphanage is not
in debt, is caring for- more than
700 children, and has about 400
more children on its waiting list
who should be admitted today,"
said Lanier. ;
The Rev. Mr. Hale, acting
chairman of the committee, said
of Lanier's attacks, "They are too
strong, we think, but of course
every Baptist has a right to ex
press his opinion. " I doubt the
wisdom of making further com
