Students Agree On Freedom

was asked for his opinion about a rumored proposal for a bill to be
introduced in the state Legislature requiring faculty advisors for all
student publications in state-supported institutions.
The suggestion was first heard of in the Wednesday column of
Burke Davis, state Legislature cor-
respondent ror The Greensboro

of no proposal to censor our stu-j

have asked me to state what I

"This movement to take Negroes

Clark Once Charged Trustees
Supported Integration Moves
John W. Clark, member of the executive committee of the UNC
Board of Trustees, has been prominent in the state press on several
occasions, as he has been actively engaged -as a private citizen in
a private campaign to uphold the southern tradition of segregation
in North Carolina.
Nell Battle Lewis, News and Observer writer, quoted a letter from
him in her column of Feb. 3, 1952. The quotation from Clark read
"The movement to break down segregation in and around Chapel
Hill and bring about amalgamation- of Negroes and whites is highly
financed and is locally supported by individuals employed by the
Trustees of the University of North Carolina. ... So far. the Execu
tive Committee has done nothing to oppose the movement. I will
appreciate any suggestions you may have to offer at any time."
