The Tightening Noose "The noose has tightened about the neck of academic free dom and freedom of political action and thought in Pennsyl vania." This is the lead paragraph of an editorial in Penn State's Daily Collegian, which continues, "So the time is growing short for the people of Pennsylvania." This frightened piece of writing concerns the approval of a required loyalty oath for all state employees by a legislative committee. One bright spot remains in the country-wide loyalty oath situationCalifornia, which was the center of the academic loyalty oath controversy for many months, has the oath no longer. A state court declared it illegal last April. The two points of view may be seen again in last Fall's Pennsylvania contest. In favor of the loyalty oath were Gov ernor S. Finex and state veterans organizations. These people, and the legislators who backed them up asserted cordially that they did not wish to curb educational philosophy, so long as it "goes in the right direction," but only wished to protect state institutions from communistic infiltration. Opposed to the oath in Pennsylvania were teacher organi zations, labor unions, civil rights groups, the presidents of Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, and Temple Univer sity. Spokesmen for the opposition group avowed that the bill was "typical fear reaction." One spokesman said, "Loyalty oaths will hinder rather than help the fight against communism . . . in general creates a climax of opinion unhealthy for a democracy." Perhaps more troublesome to thinking North Carolinians than the controversies elsewhere, is the lack of controversy in this state. We point once again to the hidden loyalty oath required of all employees of this University. Letters To The Editor Dear Ma'm: All us swamp critturs gone give you a big hug for bringing to the pages of The Daily Tar Heel that greatest of 'em all Pogo! We been all tore up 'cause none of the newspapers around here seem to know Pogo and Albert the Alligator and Churchy a Femme and we missed the little fellows. We is even gone so far as to take the gentlemen of the fourth es cape to task with letters of in quiry, But they didn't even give us so much as a polite etaoin shrdlu. Now, Mi'm Editor, Pogot has foimd a home. We who love the boy thank you for restoring him to his proberabobble niche in society. . Henry Sieela Madam Editor: An open letter to the manage ments of the Carolina Theater ; and Varsity Theater: It would seem fair that when admission prices to your good motion' pictures (Le., "A Street car Named Desire", "David and Bathsheba'Y etc.) are increased, , there would, be a corresponding reduction'" for some of the trash , 1 1 that passes as movies (i.e., "The ! Mafw Carpet"). What do you think? Jack W. Hopkins Ve take the liberty to point cut that the management of the .two, theaters do not increase the cdmission on their good movies. It Is the, producers who do so. Editors. Join the March of Dimes Not Guilty by Barry Forber Belgrade, Nov. (Delayed) -John Clews' (the great Briton) and I were salvaging a salami between gulps of black Turkish coffee this morning in the lobby of the Hotel Prague when Mitka, our guide, interpreter, and red tape slasher, came by to take us out to the University of Bel grade. Mitka is an avid Marxist and he's as happy with his com munism as a child with a bright red tricycle. Like all good Yugoslavs he loves Tito, hates Stalin, and respects Tru man. His . beaming smile and electric wit helps ease the ten sion that flares whenever we try to throw our ideology in each other's face. We headed down Red Army Boulevard toward the Univer sity, after irrigating our break fast with a flask of Serbian plum wine. (Wine is a "must" three times a day in Yugoslavia. You'd need a good bootlegger to get a glass of ice water.) THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1952 . my throat. The University of Belgrade, located 42 miles from advanced units of the Soviet Army, has 6,000 students (half coeds) unlimited class cuts, a brand new air raid shelter, and a cocktail bar of, by, and for the students. Tuition is paid largely by the State and families having children in school receive u"b sidies from the Government to cover rooms and board. Medics! service is also provided by tho State and mountain rest homes are run for students, who havo "overworked themselves in the interest of the people. The two yearly vacations, fifteen days in January and tea weeks in summer, are taken up by military training and voIuzjk teer construction projects. Dup ing the war the University w3 the center of the anti-Nazi underground resistance and Slavic Joe College participated in such extra-curricular acti vities as blasting gasoline dumps, ripping up railroad track, and decapitating sentries. As we rounded the corner by the Czechoslovakian Embassy (temporarily out of business) it was like stepping clear across the Atlantic back into the middle of tne Y-Court. ' The front steps of the Uni versity Administration Build ing were swarming witlvunder grads rehashing last Saturday's footbalf game, bumming ciga rettes, cursing instructors for an untimely pop quiz, and flirt ing with coeds who pretended not to be interested. Mitka in troduced us and as soon as he uttered the magic word "Ameri kanatz" everybody turned on me and unleashed their violent Slavic hospitality. They messed up my hair, slapped me on the spine, crushed my hand, and expressed other- signs of Bal kan affection. Every time I opened my mouth somebody would either fill it up with brandy, thrust a lighted ciga rette between my lips, or har- SS , poon a salami sandwich down M:J"? DAILY CROSSWORD ACTIOS 1 1.
