Hospitality Out Of A Mason Jar
3 of Start In End
By Rolfe Neill
(Second in a series of 2 articles
Bushy Cook, king of the beard
ed men, stared at the smudget
yellow pattern in the linoleurr
and took a long suck on a king
sized cigaret ('they keep me fron
catching on fire.").
Now in his sixth growth o
the magnificant hair, George
Braxton Cook was trying to re
call when he first allowed it;-,
course. "It was in 1936," he final
ly said. "It was when Robsevel
came in 1932 wasn't it? I hop
Ike makes as good a president
as Roosevelt did."
Satisfied that he now had the
date right, Bushy left the living
room and when he returned he
handed a glass to each of us
Then he poured us his farmer's
hospitality from a Mason jar
plopped himself into a big cherry
wood chair, and began to teU
more about himself.
Bushy popped into one year anc
out of another.
There was the time he saw his
first train when the family mov
ed from Bluff Mountain, N. C. tc
South Carolina back when the
20th century was just getting a
toehold on the calendar.
There was work in a war plant
in Connecticut in the 1940's and
then the decision to "call a spe
cial family meeting and see whe
ther they wanted me to eat up
my $3,300 Td saved or buy a
farm." Ke bought the farm a
69 acre job in Orange County
which is home to his wife and 11
Cook left the room again. This
time he came back with a hand
full of pictures which he proud
ly spread out on the double bed
in the corner. The pictures told
the story of Bushy Cook, keeper
"Tif Carolina's Tamr mascot..
According to Bushy, who let his
beard grow "for the hell of it," it
all started when he went to a
football game in 1946. A photog
rapher spotted him in the end
zone ("best ticket I could get")
and took a couple of novelty shots.
"Next day my picture was in the
paper. Soon they asked me to take
care of Rameses at the games."
Since that time Bushy has mis
sed few home games. He also took
in New York when Carolina play
ed Notre Dame there in 1949
when he and Rameses VII stop
ped traffic in Times Square at
UNCs pre-game pep rally. He
went onto the Cotton Bowl at
Dallas the following January to
strut under the eyes of Texas.
Bushy has the skull of Rameses
VII who died last summer on the
farm of George Hogan where he
was kept. A faded Carolina blue
may still be seen on the horns
and Bushy plans to have the head
He couldn't get to the first
. University .games this year be
cause his wife was in the hos
pital. It was last weekend's game
with Miami that Bushy really
hated to miss, however.
"I sure wish I could have seen
the boys do all that fine playing,"
he said as he passed the Mason
jar toward an empty glass.

Chairman Walt Dear explain
ed; "The-Daily Tar. ,Heel has
been printed as a seven column
newspaper strictly on an experi

The board was informed that
advertising revenues this year
would be high enough to pay
for the increased cost of print

This hasn't worked out. The
board voted to cut two issues
as an emergency measure to
insure publication of the seven
column paper at least to the
end of this quarter.

thing possible to insure students

Is In Town
By Ernest Davis
"Charley" Jones came home
ast night and found his congre
jation ready to resist a move to
just him as pastor of the Chapel
.iill Presbyterian Church.
He arrived" nere at 7:30 last
night and will depart early this
morning for Kingsport, Term.,
where he is serving as a consult
ant for the Save the Children
Foundation on a year's leave of
absence from the local church.
While here, the minister met
with various church officers and
members to discuss the problems
raised by a report from the Ju
dicial Commission of the Orange
Presbytery made public last Sun
day which requested the resig
nation of all church elders and
deacons. Thereport charged most
of the officers "didn't adhere
closely enough to the church's
Confession of Faith and Book of
The Commission had earlier
asked the pastor for his resig-
! nation, and said in its report that

ought to be,-instead of what they

day, the Rev. Jones was told last
night. This is only two less than
the 20 members who several
months ago petitioned the Pres
bytery for a new church, claim-
being "unmet," and touched off
being unmet," and touched off
the investigation of the church.
The officers expressed . their
confidence in the Kev. Jones at a
meeting Wednesday night. At the
same time they refused to con
ceed to the Commission's request
that they resign. They said they
would-carry-through with theiH
plans to elect new officers in ac-!
cordance with the system author
ized by the Presbytery in its Book
of Church Order at the regular
time in March.
Concerning their pastor, the of
ficers issued a statement saying
they were "unanimous in express
ing their confidence" in him, but
that "any action regarding Mr.
Jones was the responsibility of
Various members of the con
gregation had this to say of the
Rev. Jones earlier in the week:
He is a preacher without peer
in American Protestantism today.
. .He has not been stayed in his
effort to present a picture of prac
tical religion at work by criticism
or threats" and "he has been a
fearless champion of the ideal of
the brotherhood of man."
The Commission, itself, in its
report mentioned the esteem
which the congregation holds to
ward their pastor. It is "posses
sed of a strong social concern"
and "united above all other ties,
by a . common affection and re
gard for its pastor" the report
Meanwhile, student support for
the Rev. Jones continued to grow.
A spokesman for student mem
bers of the congregation urged
other students to write Howard
Newman, the Stated Clerk of the
Orange Presbytery, about their
convictions in regard to Mr. Jones.
Newman's address is 416 Eas
Main Street, Sanford, N. C.
Presbyterian students living in
the vicinity of Orange Presbytery
who have attended the church
here were asked to write to
parents, who can, in turn, talk
to the ministers about Mr. Jones.
