I V 'K b' ei auver urn Tentative, ens bziipiasiis Announcement of plans for a campus "Kef auver for President" club was termed "premature and inaccurate" by Hugh Wells yes- teraay. While admitting that he and others on campus had been dis cussing Senator Kef auver as a possible candidate for some time, Wells stated "We have discussed this in the light of our belief that Mr. Truman will not seek re-election for himself, and since he has not spoken his mind on the sub ject yet, I believe it is too early to make public pronouncements as to organized support for any other candidate .on the Democratic ticket." Connection of the group, which included "John Sanders, Jack Potts, some others on campus," and Wells, with Chapel Hill real tor Lloyd Gardner was denied, and Gardner's statements on their behalf regarding the matter were termed "unauthorized", by Wells, a third year law student. "We believe," he said, "that if Senator Kefauver should become a candidate, he would be in the real Democratic tradition as set out by Franklin Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson." Wells emphasized, "I would like to point out in particular that we are not, as was suggested by Mr. Gardner's remarks, looking for a candidate with views simi lar to those of General Eisenhow er. The General is a Republican and talks like one when discuss ing politics." Students interested in the sub ject were invited to contact either Wells, Sanders, or Potts as to pos sible future actions.

V I A War G reaTer jyuTies The cold war has thrust ne,w responsibilities on the press : to portray America abroad in the best possible, light and to demon strate conclusively to the rest 'of the world that America has some thing unique to 'offer a society of both freedom and plenty. This view was voiced here last night by John Scott, an editor of Time Magazinend former chief of several foreign news bureaus of Time, who is now on. a speak ing tour of colleges and universi ties throughout the country, Scott spoke, in Gerrard Hall un der the auspices of the Carolina Forum, non-partisan student or ganization, and the UNC Press Club. The new responsibilities of the American press, Scott said, "fall particularly on those publications like the Readers Digest, Time and Life which - publish foreign edi tions, on Hollywood with its im mense foreign audience, and on our radio, newcasters and pro gramming directors, both those working for our networks and those employed by the Voice of America in radio free Europe. "The coordination of these ef forts to show the world our best falls at least in part to govern Councils Cite Men's Council A total of six students were suspended by action of the Men's Council in fall quarter and pre sent decisions.

Political warfare, an activity in which until recently the United States was completely inexperienced, is now being pursued vigorously and intelli gently by such able servants as General Walter Bedell Smith of the Central Intelligence Agency, and Brigadier General Robert Mc Clure of the Pentagon. "It is their duty to harry and harass the Kremlin and the Com munist leaders of the satellite na tions as they have sought for the past 30 odd years to harass the western nations through the Com intern, the Cominform and a host of front organizations. One of the most effective instruments to achieve this end is the press the written and the spoken word brought to the peoples of the ruble area through newspapers, magazines, radio broadcasts, leaf lets and plastic balloons." Scott said a second function in the cold war effort is the making (See COLD WAR, page 8) Recent Cases dent, charged with cheating on his geology final, was acquitted. Two men and two women were acquitted on English course cheating counts on grounds of lack of evidence. The cases were handled separately by the Men's and Women's Council. "I The Council suspended one man found guilty of cheating in a math final while it acquitted another after evidence showed that he had no knowledge that the former had been copying from his paper. In its January 3 meeting the council suspended one student who had plagiarised on" his Eng lish theme. In this case plagia rism and its consequences had been fully explained by his pro fessor prior to the violation, the council pointed out. In another Honor Code case, the student was acquitted. Student Council Rejecting an "unjust" convic tion claim the Student Council upheld a Men's council decision which ; suspended a student for copying material from a library book for an English theme. The studeni had turned the theme in as his own work.

Sororities, fraternities and Vic tory Village will be solicited for contributions by members of the fraternity, next Wednesday, night," January 14, under authority granted them by the Campus Chest. It will mark the first instance of a charity drive's being con ducted on the campus since 1949 when the student legislature created the Campus Chest, a Community-Chest-type organiza tion which combines-all of the fund raising drives into one cam paign. Authorization was given for this particular drive ' because of the large amount of funds which have been spent by the polio founda tion in the Chapel Hill area in the past year. In addition, several employees and faculty members of the University have been af flicted by the disease in recent months, and at least one is still undergoing treatment, costing over $1,000 a month. . . Cited as a further consideration for permitting the drive to be held on the campus is the fact that the national March of Dimes has poured more money into North Carolina in recent, years than the (See POLIO, page 3) Legislature Hears Bowers In Address A program " to overcome 'stu- dent lethargy our greatest pro blem," and in turn promote student government was asked ' of the Legislature last night by President Henry Bowers in his state-of-the-campus message.
