In a Durham Sun editorial I Time magazine was described as "one of the most glaring examples f among reputable publications of "nonobjective reporting, of de liberate distortion of the news and of studied confusion of news and, editorial matter, involving the sometimes subtle and ap parently intentional blending of fact and opinion." At the same time Scott was referred to as "one of the chief Tim e twist e re." The editorial con tinues, Mr. Scott is well quali fied to discuss nonobjective re porting; but he seems, ironically, to be arguing the wrong side. When he addressed an audience BOO WilUam S. Wells, professor of English and former dean of the School of Arts and Sciences has stepped into a job that he held "pro tern" for five years. Wells was elected chairman of the University faculty in Decem ber. As head of the arts and sciences school, he had served as chairman pro-tern in an ex officio capacity since 1946 before resigning from the post last August. Proceeding him was Dr. A- W. Hobbs. In announcing the election of Wells, Chancellor Robert S. House commented, "Professor Wells is one of the best liked and most influential men in the faculty." Wells special interest in Eng lish literature is Edmund Spenser and the Renaissance period- He is also an expert In the field of bibliography. . A "marvelous" acquirement is the description that the Chancellor cave in relating the story of how Professor Wells came to Carolina. While Wells was studying for his Ph. D. at Stanford University, another student, George Sensa baugh, was also preparing for his Ph. D. degree in English here. The two schools agreed to ex change the two scholars and since then both men' have dis " tinguished themselves at their adopted : universities; House pointed out. As University administrator of the military programs in World War II, Wells did a brilliant job and was commended by both faculty and students. The chairman of the faculty represents the chancellor in all academic matters at the chan cellor's request. Wells is also chairman of the faculty committee on plans and projects . i .

Shepard A porting to school- ; t uth building. , " NUMBER 71 ces 'orm A "Kefauver for President movement has taken form here with the announced plans for a University "Kefauver" club. Instigated by Lloyd Gardner, Chapel Hill realtor who is work ing with a state "Kefauver for President" group in Raleigh, and promoted by Hugh Wells, third year law student from Shelby, the local club is scheduled for an inaugural meeting in the near future. Gardner, a veteran of three years laison work with Congress in Washington and personally ac quainted with the Senator, is firmly convinced that Kefauver can and should be the next pres ident. "In those three years I never knew a more sincere, honest, and responsible Senator,' Gardner says. "The country could certainly use a man of his caliber as pres ident at this time," says he. Speaking of Kefauver' s foreign and domestic policies, Gardner states 'The Senator adhers to principles of liberal international aid in fighting communism, with. the North Atlantic Treaty Organi zation as the major instrument in that battle, and of morality and efficiency in government officials in Washington." Eisenhower's expressed views as a liberal Republican, says he, are very similiar to those which Kefauver had previously advo cated. "When the Republican party swiags so much support behind such liberal policies, it i3 a good indication that the Democrats can supply the man for the job, Kefauver." At Long Lest!
