alternatives. The first one em
bodied the possibility of reverting
to a subhuman situation that could
be brought about by a nuclear war.
In such a condition, he said, men
would not prove who was right or
wrong, but who was left. World
War III, if nuclear weapons would
be used, would revert man to a
Man's basic concept in religion
holds to the belief that at least
there would always be a remnant
left to rebuild. Those left would be
of three types; the moral heros,
willing to die but not destory, the
moral degenerates, those who
would exploit the situation for self
seeking, and the majority who
would away with the crowd.
Dr. Crane's second alternative
was one of 'progress." At this point
Crane attacked the American "po
licy of militarism." He pointed out
that the President had said that we
must devote our efforts to being a
moral force. "No one pays any at
tention to this not even the Presi
dent," Crane -said.
Using power to out scare the oth
er? is insanity. "Is anything worse
than universal suicide?" At our pe
riod of peak power. Crane claimed,
we lost many of our foreign friends.
He declared that the militarism
which we strove to fight in two
World Wars has become the very
philosophy by which we operate.
The third alternative offered by
Crane was one of spiritual "eg
ress." The way to peace he said
was through faith, love, good will
and friendship. Building for wars
does not make peace.
"The power we posses is utterly
irreralent to the power we profess."
If goals cannot be achieved by the
power we posses then the power isl

The grant of a Univac 1105 Data

After the invocation by Robert B.

and greetings given by Gov. Hod

rector of the National Science Foun
dation, Robert W. Burgess, director
of the Bureau of Census and How
ard T. Egnstrom, vice president of
Remington Rand, remarked on their
positions in regard to the new. com
The National Science Foundation
granted a half-million dollars to
UNC for the purchase of the Univac
1105. This grant wais the first in a
series panned by the foundation to
assist in the establishment of com
puter centers in distributed regional
areas throughout the nation. The
foundation grant is designed to per
mit the use of the computer center
in fields of basic research.
The Sperry Rand Corporation will
contribute half of th cost of the
machine and the Census Bureau
has contracted for computer time
for the purpose of computing the
I960 census and other evaluations in
peak census periods. , The state of
North Carolina will support and
maintain the operation.
The Bureau of Census will utilize
the computing systems of The Uni
vac 1105's of UNC a:ad the Illinois
Institute of Technology along with
the systems already in use by the
Census Bureau. Two-thirds of the
productive time will be made avail
able to the bureau during the pe
liod of peak work load.
In addition to the proposed uses
ofthe computer system the Office
of Civil and Defence Mobilization "is
glad to see UNC become equipped
to assist" in the event of a national
emergency. Burke Horton of the Of
fice of Civil and Defense Mobiliza
tion pointed uot that the computer
and its staff may "help to save
our civilization," in the event of
a nuclear attack.
Computers as the 1105 can be util
ized to pinpoint precise locations of
factories, rail yards, bridges, pop
ulation and air fields, he said. Fol
lowing an attack the computer
could assist in planning survival
and controlling resourcs.
The UNC system will serve chief

A bill proposing changes in the
present system of selecting jurors
for the Honor Council (Gary Greer,
SP) met stiff debate as it came be
fore the legislators after a two-week
stay in the Ways and Means Com
mittee. Debate was continued on
this bili unitl next week.
John Brooks in his address to the
group in behalf of his bill concern
ing the Yackety Yack pointed out
that some organizations did not get
into the Yack under the present ar
rangement. Brooks noted that the
main importance of the Yack was
to record student activities since
the university maintained no other
record of a student's outside activi

for the entire cost of publication

and costs incurred by organizations

surplus for refunds to those organ

treasurer, objected to the bill on
the grounds that the present finan
cial status of the general surplus
in the budget was not such that al
lotment of the proposed sums would
be a good idea.
Erwin Fuller (SP), directed ques
tions to Gray on why such an ap
propriation would not be wise with
$50,000 available on demand in the
Student Activities fund.
Gray .replied that he was not pre
pared to discuss the balance in the
Student Activities fund, but would
be glad to investigate further and
make a more complete report later.
The bill was sent back to com
mittee after discussion centering
around the investment funds in the
Student Activities fund.
Before the assembly moved into
debate on Greer's proposed changes
in methods of selecting Honor Coun
cil jurors, Dave Biren (UP) moved
that speakers on the bill be limited
to five minutes speaking time. The
Greer in speaking for his bill
pointed out that his proposal would
eliminate permanent jurors on the
council and would draw upon the en
tire student body for jury duty.
In answering questions directed
to him by various members of the
body Greer said that he thought
student interest and participation
would be increased by enactment of
his proposal. In Greer's opinion stu
dent interest can not be measured
by signing up for an interview and
having a name on a list for honor
Council jury service.
