VOLUME LX CHAPEL Speaks Sunday Gil son Says Douglas is ViV'e, informed. Realist (Miss Mary B. Gilson, one of the few women pioneers in the field of industrial relations and who resides in Chapel Hill, is a long-time friend of Senator Paul Douglas. Senator (D.. 111.), will speak here Sunday night at 8:30 in Hill hall on "Ethics in Government." In the following article for The Daily Tar' Heel, Miss Gilson gives her impressions of the Senator. Ed.) By Mary, B. Gilson For many years- prior to my going to Chicago I knew Paul Douglas as a virile, informed and intelligent realist in the field of economics. To those of us on the firing line in factories, attempting to solve daily problems relating to management and labor, he had an almost uncannily realistic un derstanding for an "outsider." This opinion of his was aug mented when we heard him speak at economic conferences and when we read his books on wages, un employment, labor relations and other subjects of impelling in terest to persons facing their im pact and ramifications in the day's work. But I shall not rehearse his contributions as an author, a college professor, a government consultant, an incorruptible al- Madry Special to The Daily -Tar 'Heel . CLEVELAND, OHIO, April 10.

Paul Douglas was. a "good neighbor" in every sense of the word.

Daily Limping Duck Legislature, Parties, Juggle '53 Budget A little over half of the stu- dent legislature last night ap propriated $71,550 to 14 campus organizations, after nearly three hours of haggling over individual items. Absent from the meeting on the roll-call were six UP members, four SP members, one doubly- endorsed, and one independent member. However, the ranks of he legislators thinned out ap preciably as the evening passed, until a sparse 29 (of 50) members were present. An amendment proposed by Charlie Brewer, current head of the Student Entertainment Com mittee, to cut $3000 from The Daily Tar Heel budget and add it to the SEC appropriation, ac counted for nearly two hours of discussion. The amendment was defeated after hearing discussion from Editor-Elect Barry Farber, pub lications board member Walt Dear, and editor Glenn Harden, as well as many legislators. Preliminary votes seemed to split almost solidly along party lines, but as the discussion grew calmer, the amendment was de feated. A second amendment proposed by Brewer to cut $1000 from The Daily Tar Heel and add the sum to the SEC was also defeated, after defeated amendment to the amendment by Secretary Treasurer-elect Ed Gross to add the sum to the appropriated balance. ' A feeling of bitterness was evi dent among SP legislators, whose party -was roundly defeated in Wednesday's elections. SP floor leader Gene Cook referred at one point in a heated discussion to the "dead . duck" legislator, and pleaded that its last acts be sound. SP legislator Bob Pace,' in a reference to UP floorleader Bob Gorham's "arbitrary handling of the Carolina Forum budget" said, "I -submit to you that this is the way the UP manages things." President-elect Ham Horton, a member of the present legislature, and other UP members, argued at the beginning of the session that discussion of the budget ought to be delayed until the new legislature takes office, two weeks, from last night. The body defeated the move, however, most UP members voting with the SP to A Critical Appraisal New HisfoPy Of Education By Dr. Knighf Is Published ' By Robert W.
