This Pushing Hubby Through
has now become an accepted
phenomenon on college camp
uses throughout the nation and
UNC is no exception. At last
count, about 18 per cent of
Carolina's 6,500 students were
married males. .
It follows that while these
married men are going to school,
their families have to eat- Be"
cause of this, it usually falls the
lot of the wife to go out and
earn the daily bread.
The University itself is the
biggest source of bread for these
families. More than half of ap
proximately 300 secretarial and
clerical positions are filled by
working student wives.
In fact, J. A. Williams, UNC
personnel director, says he does
n't see how the University could
function without their help.
' "At the salaries we can af
ford to pay, we would have a
hard time attracting enough out

he said. "We need the girls and

Ike Presents Mid -East
Policy To Congressmen
WASHINGTON IAP) President Eisenhower's top advisers ar
reported to have revised an emergency Middle East policy resolution
he will personally urge upon Congress today.
Officials indicated the latest draft deals not only with American
willingness to fight to halt outright Communist aggression in the
area, but also mentions a danger of:
1. "Indirect aggression" by Russia through its support of any
Middle East nation whose forces might launch an attack.
2. Soviet efforts to subvert independent Mideast countries by
means short of military aggression.
Officials sajd the core of the re.;oIuti.n remains a request thai
Congress give Eisenhower standby authority to use American militarj
forces to stop any direct Communist aggrtion in the region.
It was understood the newest draft, repoited to be the 12th in the
past five days, did not ask Congress to allow use of American troop
to combat either subversion or "indirect aggression."
These other two threats are noted as serious problems which the
Eisenhower administration will seek lo combat in its drive to
middle east tension.
As part of that drive, Eisenhower will also propose at an unur.ial
Saturday joint session of the Senate and House that Congress author
ize a two-year program of economic aid to Middle East nations,
starting next July.
f The President will go before Congress to detail the proposed
resolution at 12:30 p. m. EST.
