Khrushchev Demands Withdrawal BERLIN, UP) Soviet Premier Khrushchev came to Berlin Satur day and demanded the withdrawal of Allied troops from this former German capital. Th Kremlin leader spoke at a torch-light rally in East Berlin be fore a crowd of more than 100,000. He declared "Order 'must be brought to Berlin." Then he went on to define that order as acceptance of the Soviet proposal to transform West Berlin into a so called demilitarized free city. Khrushchev also renewed his de mand for the signing of a World War II peace treaty that would give recognition to East Germany as a state. "We are waiting for an answer (fiom the western powers) to our proposals," Khrushchev said. 'We hope the answ er will be sensible.'' Khrushchev came here from the tr.-.de fair city of Leipzig, where he spent four days. A cavalcade of more than 20 black limousines sped Khrushchev and his D.-.rtv to East Berlin alons a 140- mile stretch of heavily guarded au- obahn. Tommygunncrs were posted at the highway bridges. Accompanying Khrushchev to the giant rally on Stalinallee, East Ber lin's show street, were his East German hosts, Communist Party boss Walter Ulbricht and Premfer Otto Grotewohl. Khrushchev looked tired on his arrival for a three-day visit in East Berlin. Bareheaded and wearing a light gray topcoat, he was not his usual bouncing self on the flag decked speaker's platform. He spoke in a hoarse voice for only 10 minutes before the bored looking crowd. Before leaving Leipzig, Krushchev warned the West of the peril of a new war and declared the Soviet Union never would permit the liqui dation of communism in East Ger many. f LJ TTM Tar Heels Still Go To NCAA Tournament AA eliminations immediately aftei State College had beaten his Tar Heels 80-56 for the Conference championship.

Photo by Peter Ness Carter And Wat kins Give Recital Tuesday Joel Carter and Glenn Watkins, both of the UNC Music Depart ment, will present a recital of songs by Schumann, P'oulenc, Bacon and Hanson in Hill Hall Tuesday at 8 p.m. The concert is open to the public. Featured on Tuesday's program, the third in a series sponsored by the ITNC Music Department, is Robert Schumann's song cycle, ,kDichterliebe." The set of 16 songs was composed in 1840 to poems from Heine's "Buch der Lieder." Ernest Bacon, director of the mu sic school at the University of Syracuse, is the composer of dram atic, choral and orchestral works. Dr. Carter, a baritone, will sing four of his songs set to poetry by Robert Burns and Walter Whit man. Dr. Watkins, pianist, will ac- Francis Poulenc to six poems from "The Book of Beasts" by Apollon aire. Written in 1919, the work was originally scored for voice and chamber orchestra. Each song de scribes some creature from the an imal kingdom. Carter and Watkins have chosen an opera aria as the final selection on their program. "Oh, 'tis on earth defiled" is from Howard Hanson's cpera, "Merry Mount,'" based on a story by Nathaniel Hawthorne and produced at the Metropolitan in 1934. Dr. Carter, chairman of voice in struction in the UNC Music Depart ment, directs the Chapel Hill Chor al Club and the UNC glee Club. Dr. Watkins, assistant professor in organ and theory, joined the Uni- numerous amendments. The Board authorized Chairman Harold OTuel to present a bill to the Student Legislature asking that the Ram and Ewe, the campus humor magazine, which has yet to see publication this year, be drop ped from the list of campus pub lications, and that the money that was appropriated to it be reverted to the general surplus. Some of the money, OTuel pointed out, must be used to pay debts in curred last year, but this, he added, would not amount to more than $50. OTuel obtained the approval of the Publications Board on a bill. currently before the Student Leg islature to appropriate $500 to the new campus publication, Playbill, a program magazine for various cam pus events. He elaborated on this measure by explaining that moneys from the Ram and Ewe could be applied to Playbill. Many changes in the Yack bud get were made, so that the budget would square with expected enroll ment increase and would not have any luxury items.

The fans in attendance at the Colliseum got a little something xtra for their money when the lights went out with less than six minutes left remaining in the sec ond half. A little over a minute ater when they came back on the clock showed 5:50 left in the game and the question of elapsed time had to be settled before action could continue. More electrical "atmosphere" ame less than 2 minutes later; this time the clock at the score- hoard went out of order. The trouble with Carolina last night can be summed up in a word: "State." The Tar Keels did not olay as well as they have on occa sions this year, but the Wolfpack was tremendous. The aggressive play of the win ders was the key to victory as they lot off 73 shots at the basket com pared to Carolina's 47 and hauled :n 22 more rebounds. In the early stages of the second lalf the Keels made their run for he lead and came within two of ying it up when Lee Shaffer hit m a technical foul try to make the core 4240 State at the 15:11 mark. For Carolina, the key play of the game came with iu:ii remaining and the Tar Heels 4 points down. At this juncture the two officials momentarily disagreed on a call is to whether the infraction was a charging or a blocking foul. Ref- , - . eree Charley t,cKman prevauea and MacGillivray converted a three point play to give State a margin if seven rather than have Harvey Salz on the foul line for Carolina. Leading scorers in the losing Tar Heel effort were Dick Kepley with 14 and Shaffer with 11. "No Program?" Many a ticket holder is heard to ak the usher at a Koger Williams concert. There's no economy drive in the printing department the reason U simply that even Williams does n't know what his program will be from show to show, day to day. He prefers to "feel out" the audience, savor its response and arrange his program as he goes, providing his listener with the style and kind of music to which they are most re sponsive, Williams' vcrsality and a reper tory that ranges through all cate gories of music make it possible for Williams to present a polished and balanced concert virtually "ad lib." Williams will appear here in Mcmomrial Hall tonight at 8 o'clock. Carolina students will be admitted to the concert on prescn tation of identification cards. Stu dent wives muy purchase tickets for $1. Townspeople may buy tick ets at the door for $2, but only after 7:45 p.m. The concert is part of Williams' 12-week eoast to-coast tour.

The Dave Brubeck Quar tet was featured during the Lost Weekend. Their concert was follow ed by a dance In Woollen gym which starred the Gladiolas and the Shadows. Photo -by BUI urinKnous Deferred rush is impractical from a financial standpoint ami is detrimental both for freshmen and the Uiversity. In a statement of reasons for opposing the delay of rush from the fall to the spring semester, the Interfraternity Council listed sev en reasons for its view that "de ferred rush is impractical and undesirable." The IFC's statement said, "The possible benefits of deferred rush are greatly outweighed by the damage that would be done to fraternities." The IFC's views on deferred rush were incorporated in a state ment released Saturday, 4 since this matter affects fraternities more acutely than anyone else, we feel that fraternities should , make the decision for or against defer red rush, not an outside group." TiMrtinf thp lists of reasons against deferred rush was the be liof Viof fraternities COUld not bear the financial burden. In the statement, the IFC has estimated that expenses during the five-mon th wait under a deferred rush system would be shared by one third to one-fourth fewer persons. This would mean that the bill per member would be raised one-third to one-fourth. In addition, the financial burden would adversely affect fraternities with mortgages or those that might want to undertake new construction or additions to heir houses. ! The IFC statement further point ed out that dirty rush would be difficult, if not impossible, to con trol under a deferred rush sys tem. Not only will deferred rush have detrimental effect on fraterni ties, but the freshmen themselves will lose a number of benefits the IFC believes. The freshman would not have the special attention from such fraternity programs as the "Big Rmthprs" and studv halls. The Big" Brother" orients the fresh man to Carolina and helps him feel at ease in his "home away from home." The study halls are incentives for the freshman to make his C average for fraternity membership. The freshman would also lose other special benefits in a shorten ed, weakened pledge training dur ing the second semester. In addition, the freshman would be discriminated against if silence were imposed for a full semester. The University itself would be adversly affected, the IFC state ment charged, because the dormi tories would have no relief from crowded facilities until the second semester. Underlying much of reasoning of the IFC against deferred rush is the voluntary aspect of pledging. Since freshmen are free to join or not to join, the IFC believes the matter of rush should be left to fraternities which are affected by the system used. The IFC's statement was drawn up by a special committee, headed by Walker Blanon. State took command of the open ing half right from the horn and were never headed. Pachter and Pucillo both hit on layups to give he "Wolfpack a quick 4 0 lead. Carolina came within 1 point of tying the score twice but always fell behind before they could pull even. At the 13:25 mark Shaffer hit on a jump shot to cut the State margin to 11-10. Four minutes later Doug Moe made good on a r;air of free throws and again Car olina was witnin one, this time at 18-17.
