(Editor's Note: This commentary, based on an editorial published last .
year in the Brevard College CLARION, was penned by Tom Neal. Jr..
former editor of the Brevard paper, and now a student of journalism at
Is it, O man, with such discordant noises,
With such accursed instruments as these,
Thou drownest Nature's sweet and kindly voices,
And jarrest the celestial harmonies?" .
FIGHTER FOR PEACE it is called this alleged student
publication from Chapel Hill, home of our state-supported
university. The idea of a fighter for peace sounds promising,
doesn't it? "Peace will conquer war" is its motto. If the pur
pose of the paper were carried out we might issue praise.
But here's the rub! Footing the final page is this modest
admission: "Published by Student Section, Carolina District,
Communist Party, U.S.A. . . . Chapel Hill, North Carolina."
And the propaganda sheet has no masthead. Unlikely that it
should. Hiding behind the pious slogan of "Peace will conquer
war," the editor is one Junius Scales and we know nothing
more of the Communist organ at Chapel Hill.
Mr. Scales uses the simple vernacular in presenting his
own (not so-called by him) "foreign ideas." He sets himself up
as an American, but joins the Commies in saying that he is
"opposed to this country's illegal intervention in Korea . . .
to colonial wars against the colored peoples of Indonesia,
Indo-China and Malaya." His bond paper has it recorded that
Scales openly suggests a hatred for our capitalistic system
of democracy. This is his type of patriotism and his fight for
A well-read newspaper woman from New York now
studying in one of the small North Carolina colleges has re
ceived copies of FIGHTER FOR PEACE. Although she claims
to have somewhat fewer inhibitions concerning the Negro
problem, she writes: "Southerners . . . do . . . feel the weight
of the Negro problem. There are also, however, few Southern
ers who cannot think of far superior methods of solving it
than those advocated by the Communist party, U.S.A."
Miss Hansen concludes her interpretation of the Scale
faux-pas . . "Freedom of the press is one of the inalienable
rights of every person or group in the United States. An
example of this same freedom is the right to select the ma
terial which we read. The FIGHTER FOR PEACE was pub
lished in free America, with every right afforded any other
publication of this country. It is up to the mentally alert
citizens of today, however, to distinguish between this sub
versive literature and that literature written to inform rather
than (to) misinform."
Incidentally, the four page "yellow" sheet is actually pub
lished on white paper ... with black ink! Red ink would be
apropos not only for ushering in the Christmas season, but
for other obvious purposes.
Yes inconsistent! But blinded by its own use of "such
accursed instruments as these" the lobster clan can hardly
see its errors.

"It is a little hard to think
about the coming campus elec
tions after all of our energies
have been spent for the past
weeks on the national election,
but on Tuesday a very impor
tant mid-year election is going
to be held and it is the duty of
all of us to turn our attention
to that subject.
Taking the legislative election
first I would like to make sev
eral observations concerning the
38 seats which are to be elected
to this body. The first observa
tion is that the Legislature over
the past years has neglected a
constructive program for the
campus. The SP has never held
a majority in this body and I
honestly feel it is about time
that we get that chance. We
continually come up with pro
grams but have been unable to
carry them out for the most
part in our minority role. In this
day and time when the voters
are giving the outsiders a chance
I ask that another group of out
siders be given a chance.
The next vastly important de
cision to be made at the polls is
in regard to the Student Council
seats. The Student Party has
never put three finer candidates
up for this body than they did
when they put up Lew Southern,
Herb Cohn, and Wanda Phil
pott. Student Council would be
aided immeasurably by these
three people whose activities to
date have shown them superior
among their fellow students.
Continuing my endorsement
of the Student Party slate I
would like to mention in pass
ing that the class officers, both
from the freshmen and Junior
class are an energetic group who
I feel deserve the backing of
Now I would never ask the
student body to back candidates
because they are student party
unless the student party deserv
ed to win. In past years the Stu
dent Party has presented a pro
gram of constructive action for
the campus and continues this
year to be the only party with
a program and the only party
consisting of all the students
and existing for all the students.
I have always felt that backing
the Student Party meant back
ing a good program, a positive
approach, and a denial of op
portunity to small groups to con
trol "all phases of campus life.
Before I leave the decision of
the coming election in your
hands I would like to add a
note of encouragement to the
campaign of Walt Dear for edi
tor of The Daily Tar Heel. He
has done a good job the past two
years on the paper and would
add zest and interest to its pages.
He is the only candidate who I
could back and feel that party
politics would not be involved
in The Daily Tar Heel. We must
have a fair-minded, non-partisan
person in control and that person
is Walt. Roberts as past chair
man of the University Party has
exhibited a great deal of par
tisanship which necessarily goes
with such an office. But above
all he has shown a lack of de
cency that I feel even partisan
party leaders should have. Fi
nally, I find it amusing that
those who yelled most about
cliques in government last year
are now forming one of their
own. For the election of Beta
Biff will mean the fourth top
position held by the Beta fra
ternity. Already the president of
the student body, the chairman
of the consolidated university
student council, and chairman
of the interfraternity court are
related in those bonds.
The above would not stop me,
even though it is appaling, if I
felt Biff could do the job, but
his past does not point that way,
and Walt Dear can point to a
past of devotion to the DTH in
an entirely non political vain.
Voters, however you vote on
Tuesday, show an interest in
your local self-governing com
munity by participation. I hope
that that participation will show
your faith in the SP which tries
to show its faith in you.
Why has the Executive Board
of the Trustees suddenly revers
ed its previous decision about
Saturday classes at Carolina.?
The conditions have not chan
ged from those which were evi
dent, and which the same Board
pointed out, last year when the
question came up.
The only real reason put forth
for Saturday classes is that stu
dents form a mass exodus from
Chapel Hill on weekends. Any
of the readers of Tar On My
Heels last year know that was
one of my pet peeves. It still is,
but Saturday classes are not the
Saturday classes are not the
answer for more than one rea
son, but, for one, let me appeal
to the judgement of the Trustees
with this statement: You can't
force people to do a thing. You
can't force students to stay in
Chapel Hill on weekends if they
are set against it.
Those determined to go home,
will. If they are not allowed to
go on Friday, they will leave
on Saturday. Trustees of an ed
ucational unit such as UNC
should realize force is not the
answer; education is.
There are other arguments
against Saturday classes. There
are those that work on week
ends. Sure, they could stay at
Carolina on weekends and work
at Lenoir, but at Lenoir they
can earn only their food. The
basis at Lenoir is unfair, but
leaving that for a later issue,
I wish to pose the question re
garding what those students who

There are other students who
go home for a multiplicity of
reasons. Is it necessary that they
be forced to stay here to decor
ate the campus for the personal
satisfaction of the Trustees when
they ride through?
I am not reversing my per
sonal stands regarding students
who go home to "mama" every
weekend. I am attacking the
means the Trustees are using to
accomplish a mutual end. Force
never solved any problem for
long. If the Trustees of Carolina
Carolina can't properly put ed
ucation to work here to keep
students at Carolina, they they
are failing in one important part
of their job. The institution of
Saturday classes is only an ad
mission that they have failed.
This is not Duke. Nor is it
State or W. C. Sure those in
stitutions have Saturday class
es. Different conditions exist at
our richer rival, Duke. Likewise,
different conditions exist at Car
olina than exist at State or W. C.

more work under the quarter

In your edition of November
6 you printed a letter from one
Bill Scarborough, refuting state
ments made by John Sanders in
a previous edition, attacking
Senator Joseph McCarthy. By
some freak of nomenclature my
name is identical with that of
Mr. Scarborough, and as a result
of the appearance of his letter in
your columns, a number of my
acquaintances have misconstrued
the letter and sentiments therein
to be mine. In order that Mr.
Scarborough may be properly
recognized as the originator of
his argument, and in order that
I may be disconnected from the
viewpoint he holds, I wish to
make known my own opinion
concerning the McCarthy con
troversy. The furore over Senator Mc
Carthy's actions was initially
drawn along partisan lines; thus
has it remained, intensified by
the imminence of the presiden
tial election. Both factions have
failed to realize the gravity of
his charges, and have failed to
give them serious or objective
consideration; therefore, there is
no basis for either the unre
strained vituperation of Mr.
Sanders or the narrow and in
conclusively documented de
fense of Mr. Scarborough. As an
arch-conservative, I do not ap
prove the cud-chewing complac
ency with which the present ad
ministration regards Communist
interlopers in high government.
From a personal observation of
his conduct, in which I attempt

Fall elections will be held
Tuesday and much is at stake
in this campaign. You, the stu
dents, represented by an active
University Party have many in
vestments at stake. Last spring
you saw fit to accept a UP plat
form which was put into effect
by new faces around Graham
Memorial and you have already
received many benefits from this
platform. Many more points are
near completion but if the op
position party gains in this elec
tion the efforts of your Univer
sity Party will be blocked.
Last . spring the University
Party promised to see that the
Tarnation, our traditional humor
magazine, would be reestablish
ed. Two short weeks after the
election, a Tarnation committee
began work on the reestablish
ment of the magazine. Publica
tion permission was cleared
through the administration and
before the end of the spring
quarter plans had been complet
ed for the new Tarnation. You
now have the Tarnation again,
thanks to your UP.
The University Party prom
ised to resist removal of students
from Vance - Battle - Pettigrew
and Steele dormitories and since
the spring election nothing more
has been done by your adminis
tration to remove the students
from VBP and Steele. Your UP
was at work again.
Early this year your Univer
sity Party presented a plan for
redisricting of men's dormitory
districts and over strong Stu
dent Party opposition the bill
was passed; consequently, you
have closer representation in
Student Legislature. The opposi
tion party offered a plan last
year to cut the number of rep
resentatives in the legislature.
The UP opposed and defeated
this and again insured you of
The UP promised that every
dormitorywould soon have bet
ter social rooms. Today every
dorm on campus except one en
joys greatly improved social
room facilities. Last year only
two dorms had social rooms.
It goes without saying that the
UP is strongly opposing Satur
day classes and the present Stu
dent Government administration
is carrying the fight to the trus
tees in representation of you.
More important than what has
been done is what will be done
if the UP keeps your support
Plans are now almost complete
for the establishment of a check
cashing service in Lenoir Hall.
An infirmary dispensary at
Woollen Gym to take care of
injuries too minor for infirmary
treatment will be set up soon.
Plans are nearly completed for
this also. A Student committee
is presently investigating the
UNC Book Exchange here on
reputation, I do not approve of
Senator McCarthy. His demean
or is not that of the courageous
public servant dedicated to the
performance of his office regard
less of personal loss.
I do not intend an affirmation
or a repudiation of either Mr.
Sanders of Mr. Scarborough by
the above statement. It is my
sole desire to reestablish myself
as a separate entity from the
Bill Scarborough who authored
the letter in the Nov. 6 issue of
The Daily Tar Heel.
