The southern part of Henderson is piedominantly residential parti cularly near the city limits. But in the northern end of the town are located, in addition to the mill village, several motels, restau rants, the highway patrol headquar ters and another mill. A railroad line runs through the town, a block to the left of the main street, going north. One might even say the railroad serves to split the town into two separate factions, as both the North and South Henderson mill villages lie beyond the railroad. And, to a great degree, the town is divided into two classes the mill workers and the remainder of the town. One Henderson resident put it like tnis: "Suppose you live in one of tin? better residential districts of town and date a girl, from South Henderson, for instance. Well, peo ple will say, 'He goes with a girl from Souh Henderson; but they ,A v ? r ) '1;..,. p ! j I til , - ' ' ' HENDERSON MILL , , , the fence divide Hill will be celebrated by the Ger Britten, Robert Kurka, Charles Tal madgc and R..

Mill Community won't say, 'He goes with Betty or Susie or whoever it may be. This just gives you one example of the way the town is split up." The majority of the mill houses are nothing more than simple frame houses many of them are in need of repair. But some of them have new paint, and have been patched jp to look much better than others. In fact, some of them look as nice as some of the homes in the "bet ter" residential sections of town. The 10 p.m. curfew that was called for Monday by Mayor Carroll Sing leton is certainly something that is needed. Though the sidewalks are virtually deserted after sundown, quite a few teen-agers were out in C.rs. A local drive-in restaurant was crowded with cars about 10:00 last Friday night, but virtually de serted 30 minutes later. One car-load of teen-agers sped past shouting, "Let's race." Other tars containing teen-agers were seen all over town, but primarily on the main streets the ones with the most lighting. Very few cars, with the ex ception of State Highway Patrol Ugly Man Deadline Extended The UMOC deadline has been ex tended until noon Saturday by Alpha Phi Omega Tresident Randal Ether klge. "We feel that many dormitories and fraternities could arrange with the Photo Lab for the three prints necessary to enter if we gave them another day, "Etheridge said. Beginning Monday students will be able to vote for the "Ugliest Man I on the Campus" in a contest spon sored by Carolina's service frater nity. Polls will be maintained at the Scuttlebutt. Y-court and the Pine Room each afternoon. Students will vote for their choice after studying the 5 by 7 inch photographs dis played by depositing a penny for every vote they wish to register. "Several fraternities already have turned in the three photographs of their most hidious examples of the human race," affirmed Etheridge on Tuesday. He went on to explain that any interested group could obtain the necessary photographs of their contestant from the Photo Lob for "about $2.50." Entries should be brought to the APO office located in the basement of Smith Dorm by Friday afternoon. The winner will be presented a de stinctive mahogany plaque bearing his name and honor together with a caricature of the Ugly Man as seen on posters on the campus.

Late at night nearly all the motels near the Highway Patrol headquar ters in North Henderson were filled with the troopers' silver and black cars. As we rode around through the mill area, our headlights flicked on a house situated at an intersection where two streets formed a "T." (The house was at the end of the street that formed the base of the Only a fraction of a minute had passed after our headlights had hit the house, when two large floodlights came on and a man and woman ran out into the yard. As we turned the corner and drove on by, they walked around to the back of the house to watch us. The man held something long and slender in his hands. Saturday, we stopped at a house that was dynamited several weeks ago. As Pete took some pictures of the house, I waited in the car. Two husky young men, each about 25, strolled over to the car. "Where you from?" one of them asked. I told him. "You don't work over in the mill, do you?" he asked. He emphasized the word "work." I assured him that I did not work in the mill. "Well, we just wanted to make sure," he said. "We don't allow none ol them workers to take any pic tures over here." Later in the day, as we rode by the North Henderson union hall, we stopped to take a picture of the hall. As we sat there only for a minute or so several strikers looked at us, looked at each other and several of them started to walk toward us.

Smith was the keynote speaker at the first plenary session in Memorial Hall Thursday night for the United Nations Model Assembly. In his address he said a way to prevent wars Is to live under a sys tem of single government on an in ternational scale, some what the same way that people have similar governments in towns, states and nations. "The people of the world are now in daily contact with one another," said the Greensboro attorney, "a result of trade and scientific im provements in transportation and communication. Whether we like it or not, it's so ... . "The people of the world, living in close daily contact can't get along without fighting, sooner or later, un less they live under a common gov ernment. It is naive to think other wise. But in spite of two World Wars, many people haven't seen it yet." Smith advocated to the assembly a revision ot tne united Nations to levd towards stronger world gov ernment in endeavors to reduce arm aments and taxation, as well as to find peace, prosperity and freedom. The model assembly's economic, political and disarmament commit tees will meet today from 9 a.m. to 12 noon with an hour coffee break Officia NAME TMI TMII TMIII TMIV DMI DMII DMIII DMIV DMV DMVI DWI DWII TW A3S & INF TOTALS STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT Charlie Gray 150 341 125 68 144 189 182 157 86 211 173 167 96 51 2,140 Norman B.

As the budget stands now, there is $123,000 estimated income and $119,931.42 estimated expenses, leaving an unappropriated balance of $3,068.58 for leeway operations by the Student Legislature next year. Items entirely eliminated from the budget in committee include the Uni versity Club, the Exchange Schol arship Program, and the Ram and Ewe. The Carolina Quarterly was cut to two issues a year, and the Graduate Club speaker program, which closely paralleled the work of the Carolina Forum, was com- letely cut. The Interdormitory Council's ap propriation for social activities was increased by $1100 over last year up o $2300, on the basis of good handl ing this year. The Graham Memorial and Yack amounts were also raised $1,000 over last year in committee, due to increased operations. Most other recommendations were sub stantially in line with the prior year's budget. Acting last night, the Student Leg islature did revise the appropriations of several organizations as recom mended by Gray's committee. The number of delegates sent to the Na tional Students Association conven tion was reduced in the interests of economy and efficiency of serv ice. About $500 in travel money was taken from the Debate Squad and given to the Carolina Forum for an increased program of guest speak ers. In order to maintain a respec table unappropriated balance Jim Crownover suggested that the Caro lina Symposium figure be reduced by $250, with the understanding that if more was needed, it could be asked for. The budget was finally passed with the comment that the unappropri ated balance this coming year is the smallest in recent years.

Heaviest winner was Charlie Gray who soundly trounced Norman Smith for president of the student body. A margin of 772 votes led the Uni versity Party's Gray to victory over Smith, Student Party nominee for president of student government. The University Party also took the vice president, secretary and treas urer positions in the executive de partment of student government. For the vice presidency David Grigg had 1,930 votes against JLru Crownover 's 1,557 votes. The closest race of the big four was for secretary.
