Today's science is leaving out
simple faith in God, said Dr. Eric
C. Rust at a YWCA lecture last
"How can we as Christians re
spond to this scientific world?"
was the question the doctor tried
to answer. Dr. Rust is a British
mathematical and atom physicist
who became a Baptist theologian.
He said that scientific material
ists assume that the only way to
know reality is through "studying
measurement the weight of things
and the way they are maneuvered."
"Scientists are concerned with
generalizations," continued Dr.
Rust. "They want to find what
things have in common, the univer
sality of things. How can universal
truth be found by looking every
where?" Het .said God and truth
must be searched for "by going
deep down into" one person's ex
perience of redemption at one
He pointed out that scientific
materialism had its origin in re
ligious faith. Aristotle's world was j
S S .7d mTtter. An acorn
became an oak tree because an
acorn was potentially an oak tree.
There was a sort of "mental com
ponent within the acorn, he said
To Aristotle, said Dr. Rust,
everything had an end and purpose
and "moved in an attempt to sati
isfy its true nature.' He never
troubled with experiment. He
thought of nature as semi-divine,
man to him had within himself all
the thoughts of God, Dr. Rust con
tinued. He went on to explain how ex
perimentation came with the Re
formation. Dr. Rust said the first
scientists were devout Christians.
A fundamental error occurred
when Decartes began to separate
mind and matter, he said. Matter
has extension and can weighd.
Mind cannot, he added. This, ac
cording to the doctor, began the
long period of struggle between
religion and scientists.
Fire At Inn
Burning grease on a stove in
the kitchen of the Carolina Inn
caused little damao yesterday
morning according to the Chapel
Hill Fira Department.
The blaze broke out at about
9:15 a.m. when greasa on the
stove became too hot. Firemen
said It took only five minutes to
extinguish the blaze.

of Spring and fertility, the word
Easter symbolizes the awakening
of life from apparent death, mani

ATLANTA, March 28 (Special)
Georgia Gov. Herman Talmadge
said yesterday President Eisen
hower made a "great mistake" in
banning segregation in federally
operated schools on Army posts.
"Truman's advocacy of such
measures contributed greatly to
Eisenhower's victory,' Talmadge
said in an interview at his Love
ioy, Ga. Farm. "Now it looks like
Eisenhower is trying to go Truman
one better. '
"Nonsegregation won't work in
the South. The white people don"t
want it and the Negroes don't
In Atlanta, Rep. John Greer of
Lanier County said he hoped South
ern Democrats who "deserted their
party to support Eisenhower on
the theory that he would uphold
segregation are satisfied."
The president's order will effect
Ft. Benning, Ga. which has four
white elementary schools with
1,063 students and 45 teachers.
There is one Negro school with 31
pupils and two teachers. The Ne

the University's escheats fund if
they were not claimed within 60
Escheats is the system whereby
property reverts to the state be
cause of the failure of persons leg
ally entitled to hold it.
However, the future of legalized
racing itself is in doubt in the
state. The General Assembly now
has before it a bill which would
outlaw the races which began in
the mid 1940's. Racing now is legal
at Morehead City and Moyock.
The bill came from Sen. Edwin
Pate, who introduced it at the re
quest of Kemp Cate, escheats of
ficers for the Consolidated Univer
sity. Cate's office is in Chapel Hill.
Another escheats provision sim
ilar to the one contained in Sen.
Pate s bill was considered two
years ago but the General Assem
bly failed to pass it.
Besides providing for escheats of
dog track funds, Sen. Pate's pro
posal also would escheat to the
University the wages or salaries
owed by any corporation in the
state which were not claimed .with
in two years of the end of the cal
endar year in which they were
earned. At present, only corpora
tions engaged in construction work
are required to pay such unclaimed
hSes into the fund. At present,
unclaimed funds go the es-
cheats fund after one year.
Still another provision would
enable stocks and bonds whose
owners cannot be located to be
. transferred to the escheats fund,
' The Consolidated University gets
j a nice hunk of income annually
from the escheats money. The
money is taken and invested by
the University and the interest
from the principal is used to pro
vide scholarships. The scholarships
are divided among the three con
solidated institutions according to
their student enrollment.
