All organizations that have passed resolutions will have a representative on hand at 4 p.m. today to meet with Chancellor R. B. House and present the reso lutions in one body, according to Henry Bowers, president of the student body. The resolutions were initiated by a mysterious "main resolu tion" which was drawn . up and circulated to student organiza tions by an anonymous commit tee.7 This committee wishes to keep the content of the so called main resolution from being pub lisheduntil after the meeting today.- '' The segregation disturbance arose last week when Negro "law student James R. Walker, Jr., re turned to House tickets in the colored section of Kenan Stadium in lieu of a; student passbook. Bowers made public his disap proval of the situation on Friday and was soon followed by student religious groups in their Sunday night meetings. r Tuesday night the Student Leg islature in a special session and with a 27-14 vote and the Mono gram Club' unanimously passed resolutions in which they stated their disapproval of Negro segre- gation. To substantiate the belief -that Communist factions were opposed to McCarthy Kersten quoted a passage from the Daily .Worker which Read: "I urge all Commu nist Party members, and all anti facists to yield second place to none in the fight to rid our country of the f acist poison of McCarthyism.' The second speaker of the even ing. Boiling, a twice-elected con gressman from Missouri, main tained that "McCarthyism was so bad it must be ranked with Com munism." Boiling said, "FBI and other government "agencies were working well before .the McCar thy investigations and that all this commotion of the McCarthy group was a movement to gain power, prestiege, and publicity, He said McCarthy destroyed necessary papers for a case and that he had been "somewhat neg ligent regarding his income taxes." Boiling summed up his speech with the statement ''Mc Carthyism is bad. When a question was present-i ed to Boiling that of which effect did a""l the McCarthy mix-up have on foreign nations, h re plied, "We are using a cannon to shoot fleas; they think we are ridiculous. .

"The General Advisory Board doesn't direct any instructor to let out his 12 o'clock classes early," said Chancellor R. B, House yes terday, "but anyone that does has the good , will of both the board and myself." "And if they turn us out," said Minett, "we ought to be willing to go down and see the boys off." The team will takes buses at the gym for the Raleigh-Durham Airport where they catch a plane for the rest of the trip. "So", says, Minett "we expect anybody who owns any thing that rolls to bring it along in order that we can follow the buses to the airport." Also greatly appreciated, says the cheerleader, will be any ori ginal signs which any persons might have the ingenuity to de sign and the initiative to bring down to the sendoff. To give an idea of the type of signs wanted, Kay Kyser suggest ed something on the order of "So long, men. Take the T out of Texas". "But the sendoff is only half of the job," Minett reminded. "Whether they win or loose, they gotta come back. And, although there is no doubt in our minds as to the outcome of the game, the University Club expects everyone to be on hand for the return to Raleigh-Durham at 3:45 p.m. Sunday."
