Dr. Graham described to the UNC and WC students the diffi culties which he encountered as a member of the UN commission which settled the revolt of the In J donesians against the Dutch, and gave sovereignty to the Indonesian Republic. With the Indonesians, led by President Sukarno, clamoring for independence in 1945, from the Dutch, Dr. Graham was appointed, along with an Australian and Bel gian representative to mediate the dispute for a peaceful settlement. Dr, Graham went on to relate the deadlocks which the UN commiss ion bogged down on. The Dutch wanted the problem settled in In donesia. The Indonesians out of their country. Out of this impasse came the solution, through diplomatic chan nels, to negotiate the dispute on an American warship, the Ren ville, a naval vessel.

More Than 60 Earthquakes Recorded Here At least 60 different earth quakes were recorded in the past four days by the UNC seismo graph. Dr. Gerald , R. MacCarthy, geophysicist in charge, said Wed nesday. Dr. MacCarthy said the number "far exceeds" recordings for any similar period since the seismo graph was established here in 1953. Then tremors ranged from " 'world-shaking' to barely percep tible," he said. The period covered the time from 9:33 a.m. of Mar. 9, when the first big Aleutian earthquake of the current scries began, until 8:45 a.m. yesterday. In the past 24 hours, 13 earth quakes, all "moderate to weak." were rcccrded. Dr. MacCarthy said. Most were located in the Aleutian region, he said. The series of tremors constitute what is called a "swarm of earth quakes," Dr. MacCarthy said. They have been decreasing in' intensity, following a regular pattern, he said, and can be expected to con tinue for several months or possi bly years. MMO tilLL SS.IN3 (SPUKtS) to be confused I
