Once -there were two islands
ec me distance apart, one of which
waj xnhabitied by brown monkeys'
and the Other by white monkeys.
The island of the brown monkeys
was half barren dessert and half
tropical swamp and there was no
fit place to live in the whole of it.
Consequently its inhabitants
were rather backward and stunted
in comparison to the white mon
keys wrhose island was a large,
fertile land upon which bananas
grew in great profusion.

Despite this, the brown mon
keys produced many famous doc
tors, artists, statesmen, scientists
and athletes. But some of the
white? protested that the whole
island would be better off if the
brown monkeys were granted full
equality. It was 'pointed out that
poor education, living conditions,
moral standards and health had

tired of hearing him scream and
put him away in a nice safe place
with a room full of brown dolls
and a bucket of white wash where
he could finish out his days in
bliss and oblivion.
Perhaps this is an odd parable,
but then monkeys always were
queer little beasts.

keys grew prosperous and leisure
ly and began to dislike hard work
even though their prosperity de
pended upon it. At length some
one suggested that the business
of growing bananas was dirty
work and might well be more sui
tably delegated to the brown heat
hens in the other island. A boat
load of browTi monkeys was
brought over and. it was found
that indeed they worked well and
were inexpensive to maintain.
But not everyone agreed that
they should be slaves and event
ually a "war was fought and the
slaves set free. But the owners of
the banana trees -continued to
the brown monkeys.
About this time a great patriot,
the "Snow-White Ape," clearly a
superior being due to (he purity
of his hue, arose to the defense
of those who prdposed to main
tain the status quo and proclaim
ed that the brown monkeys were
biologically inferior. After . all,
were they not brown? He pointed
out that if you allowed them all
the privileges of the; white mon
keys you would, soon have inter
marriage and this would lead to
a mongrol breed no better than

the same recreation; readable to

In his address Dr. George uses
almost all the device? available
to sway opinion by oral attempt.
He appeals to religion, patriotism,
parental protection, quotes out of

a cloak of respectable scientific
evaluation by use of his position
with the University of North Carolina.

jot The professor contends that
through intermarriage and the re
sulting offspring that we" will gra
dually become a race of negroid
'peoples. Yet in the early-part ol
his address he offers the fact that
Negroes constitute only 10 per
cent of the population.
i He has the gall to submit to
intelligent people that this 10 per
cent will corrupt the blood lines
of the other 90 percent and that in
the corruption the negroid strain
will predominate. It seems that
mathematically the converse
would be true.
Through all the professor's
rambling he has failed to offer
any factual evidence to support
his contention that the Negro is
biologically inferior. What he ac
tually does is to use the present
undisputed shortcomings of the
Negro as "proof" of his inferior
ity. It is a sorry logic indeed
which take- the results of segre
gation as a reason for its contin
uance. It seems that the professor's
action is speaking before a gath
ering of students and faculty of
another university in such a ridi
culous manner would certainly
lower the -opinion of the Univer
sity of North Carolina in the eyes
of everyone hearing or reading
the professor's address.

how he can do it, but I can't see
why he would want to do it."

VISE AND OTHERWISE:
In recent months there has been much agita
tion for a new student union building such as the
Cow College students enjoy. A committee has worked
diligently to this end, and both political parties have
pledged their support for thL cause.
I should like to state several reasons why we
don't need a new union, for the benefit of students,
administration, trustees, and members of the State
Legislature who might be interested.
Graham Memorial Activities Board doesn't need
more office space. Mike Strong always doe- his best
work on tiie table in the hall.
The National Students Association doesn't need
an office, because who knows what good they can
Why should the veep of the. student body have
an office? The speaker's chair in Phi Hall should
The Carolina Forum, Publications Board, NSA,
Pan-Hellenic,' Valkyries, Grail, etc. are all very cozy
in their cubicle, all 200 (?) square feet of it.
The Orientation Committee is aL-o content with
The Daily Tar Heel enjoys working in a crowded
office. It makes for more intimate relations, con
fusion, and errors.
Why should we have more space for organization
al meetings? The organizations are legion, but they
have three Roland Parker Lounges in which to meet.
Why have more space?
I don't really think that students would enjoy
a modern bowling alley, table tennis room, or mod
ern pool (excuse me, billiards.) room. Carolina stu-'
dent just don't have an interest in such ephemeral
pursuits. (Besides that, it's always best to wait in
line for a cue, your games means more that way.)
Briefly, these are just a few of the many reasons
why we don't need a new student union building.
You can probably think of many more.
Are We Gyped
On State Vote
The Franklin Press
In a bridge game, if all the aces were given one
player before the cards were dealth, there'd be an
exchange of hard words among the ladies.
If it were poker, the exchange probably would
be of j-o me thing harder than words.
Yet that is exactly trie way a large proportion of
North Carolina's citizens are short-changed on their
voting, every two years. For though the state senate
is supposed to represent 'population alone, 65O,(X)0
North Carolinians elect almost twice as many mem-
bers of the senate as another group of nearly a nil
lioiu Six hundred fifty 'thousand -can but-votc a
million, and by a margin of nearly two to one.
The reason that is true is because the General
Assembly "shall" re-allot 'senators, after each census,
in line with population changes.
If it were bridge or poker, there'd be a row. But,
since it is merely citizenship rights. North Carolin
ians take it with never a camplaint.
WC Plans Dance
For UNC Men
April 6 should prove to be one of the most en
joyable of the year. It is Consolidated University
Day at Woman's- College, in Greensboro.
The girls under the leadership of Mary Mahoncy,
have planned a terrific chain of activities to enter
tain ther guests. Each dormitory on W. C.'s campus
will hold open house prior to a dance. At the same
time, weather permitting, their band will be giving
a concert on the lawn in the quad. The dance (in
formal) will be held from 8:30-12 in the ballroom of
Elliot Hall, at a price of 50 cents.
The Consolidated University Student Council will
meet at 2 p.m. in Elliot Hall.

minutes later, the Brooklj-n Dodgers meet the Mil
This evening at 8, Jackie Gleason returns to
Channel 2 with more of the Kramdens and the Nor

features UNC alumnus Jack PaJance, along with
Teresa Brewer and the Stepp Brothers. The choice
ij obvious, except to dyed-in-the-wool Cleason ad
dicts. Mr. Palance and Miss Brewer need no intro
duction; the Stepp Brothers are one of the finest
dance teams around.
Those interested in art, and particularly in sculp
ture, will enjoy Channel 4's "Art and Artists" pres

analysis of Henry Moore and h'u work.
