Loaded Dice & Teamsters Union:
Miami Convention Filled With Goons

be little doubt of such loaded

The pedple of the United States

The gangster in question: .Jim

president, hand-picked by "re

Beck to maintain the top-echelon
corruption which developed under
Hoffa's record of corrupt acti
ities in and out of the Teamsters
is well known to all since Sen. Mc
Clellan's committee hearings on
corruption in the Teamsters. The
tragedy is that Hoffa will doubtless
be elected to head the Teamsters
in spite of this evidence and the

Teamsters fro mtlie AFL-CIO if

The Teamsters Union is the larg
est sinule union in the country and
probably the most powerful. Its
members work in nearly all the
land transportation facilities ex
cept the railroads. A general
Teamster strike could all but crip
ple the nation. And Hoffa is prop
osing to the Railroad Brotherhood
that they merge with the Team
sters to form a super transporta
But Hoffa will probably be elect

done enough gtoundwork to insure
this. The 2.0O0-delegate Teamster
convention now in session in Mia

standing ovation after he emo

Investigation committee has. in

Teamster do when his union's
machinery is so tied up by gang
sters? They have their jobs to
worry about. They can't be too ac
tive in seeking reform lest they
lose their job or, worse yet, lest
Hoffa's goons "take care of them."
The union racketeers mean busi

can attest that statement.
It's nearly impossible to expect
reform from xvithin a union where

The prospects of a Teamster
ouster from the AFL-CIO is almost
more frightening than the corrup

the AFL-CIO would doubtless try
to set up rival trucking unions.
The resulting jurisdictional dis
putes could easily cripple the na
tion's transportation systems.
Perhaps it's time for more leg
islation to regulate such cases
of corruption within unions. Un
ions today are very powerful so
cially, politcally and economically
within the nation. Yet they are
virtually without the controls
against corruption placed on other
powerful private institutions such
as the stock exchange.
Sen. McClellan's committee has
compiled an impressive list of evi
dence of union corruption. The
Emerald xvould like to see this evi
dence put to use in drafting fu

have become too powerful in the
nation to escape such legislation

My Life's Ambition:
A Meadow To Roll In
One of the things which I have decided I xvant
to do before I die is build my own house.
I have thought a long time about this, and have
reached the conclusion that a man doesn't have
too much to hold onto in this life except liquor
and sex and sometimes even sex is not a sure
thing; and it is stupid to grow your own food,
or make your own liquor to satisfy - your other
basic drives; but if you have built the house which
you live in, then you've got something.
I am not a homebody. Nevertheless, I want to
buy me some land, with a big meadow and a
.small river and mountains in the back, and I'm
going to build me a little house out of cinder block
with a fireplace in the middle, and I'm going to
get me a bottle of bourbon on those cold winter
nights and just get right out of my head in the
house that I built.
And there ain't nobody going to blow it down.
Snow nor rain nor nor'westers are not going to
budge it at all.
And when I get good and drunk I'm going out
in my back meadow and just roll around in it.
(Hint to Freshmen When stupid english teacher
asks you what is a metaphor, you say to roll in.)
I haven't .decided yet where I am going to get
the money to build it. Not only is life a constant
search for a new place to drink, it is also a con
stant struggle to stay out of debt. Someone once
said. "Work is the curse of the drinking class."
and I am in complete agreement.
I am currently trying to get some money out
of the loan sharks in the basement of Ilanes Hall.
They are very fine people down there, but they
are definitely in a money-making profession; and
they don't think that a little usury now and then
is a bad thing.
I think it is highly unethical and almost a little
immoral for a university to charge just as much
to make a loan to one of its needy students as
the downtown banks. But the University has the
students over a barrel, because most of the ones
who need the money, are like me no-good, out-and-out
bums who couldn't borrow a .dime from
the Bank of Chapel Hill.
- What happened to the house I'm going to build?
Darned if you know.
I'x'e just figured out how I'm going to get
enough money to build my house and also keep
me supplied in alcohol for all my life. I'm going
to set up a loan shop in Hanes Hall Parking Lot.
and charge five per cent interest. I'm going right
down to the Student Loan Office tomorrow and
borrow some money to set up this venture.
Sometimes I amaze myself with my brilliance.
The other day, I was trudging along to ont of
my most "unfavorite classes" along with sev
eral ether sympathizers who also weren't in any
hurry when I saw a very inspiring sight ... a
bright-eyed Dramatic Arts major witH-'blonde hair
flying in the wind.
She was running, yes running, to her DA 57
class. Such enthusiasm merits an explanation. I
found it, after talking with several of the Carolina
Playmakers. from whose ranks have emerged such
names as Tom Wolfe, Andy Griffith and Foster
Fitzsimmons, who is now on the DA faculty.
Kai Jurgensen, director of The Lark and mem
ber of the faculty had this to say" at tryouts for
the first production: "In my fifteen years here,
this is one of the biggest turnout- and biggest
amount of quality in turnouts that I can remem
ber." These people look like another great batch of
future celebrities. They have a gleam in their
eye as they give up a minimum of 13. hours a
week working on the set, hammering nails, paint
ing, building platforms, and practicing, practicing,
The costume shop is open every night going
full blast until 11:00 or later. The same little
blonde xvho speeds to DA class gave up the thrill
of rush simply because she had to make a decision
between the Panhell tea and the first meeting f.t
This year's crop is viciously tearing down th?
old stereotype of the "arty. Bohemian, non-conforming
Dramatics Maior." One of the1 group told
me. "It is the people who don't have what it takes
that go around with ostentatious signs of their
profession plastered all over them like the ama
teur artist who wears a paint spattered bloase and
caries an easel under his arm or sticks a paint
brush behind his ear.
" ''Bohemians' are not condoned within the
drama denartment anv more than outside of it. In
fact we all have to suffer because of them."
Besides The Lark, the Playmakers have slated
Teahouse of the August Moon, and the very recent
Broadway play by Arthur Miller (M.M.'s husband!,
A View from the Bridge.
It looks as if they are goinq all out for the audi
ence this year. It seems logical that we can sacrifice
The Outlaws of Oxcart Junction or whatever else
is olayinq at the movies that night to set their
show. After all, to go to Carolina and skip Play
makers' Production would be like going to New
York and skipping Broadway. And who knews? This
craw may be Broadway someday.
