A decision should be made within a week as to whether the state will appeal , the federal court's ruling that the speaker ban law was un constitutional, Vanore said. Although the state is still of ficially undecided on what to do, Attorney General Wade B niton released a statement late Tuesday hinting that the Attorney General believes that the General Assembly could write a new law that would be constitutional The statement said, "Whether or not the General Assembly of North Carolina wishes to consider formulating and enacting a statute more LET IT ALL HANG OUT, an Experimental College course, underway Tuesday with a game of Red Rover, Red Rover in Polk Place.

Presidential Ball UNC Planned For By TERRY GINGRaS of The Dally Tar Heel Staff CHOICE 68, which President Johnson has said will make people across the nation "stop, look, listen and evaluate," will be held on April 24. CHOICE 68, the national col legiate presidential primary, is an attempt to discern the . American college students' opinion on the presidential can didates and the campaign issues. "The ballot reflects every possible choice said Bruce Jolly, chairman of the Current Affairs Committee, the sponsor of CHOICE 68 at UNC. "The ballot was drawn up by 11 regional college leaders in Zht Daily I;ir Ijrrl World NeWs BRIEFS By United Prtts International Pueblo Crew 'Will Be Punished9 conjunction with national political leaders," said Jolly. "The question on the ballot have been very carefully word ed, since they include possible courses of action in Vietnam. "This is the finest op portunity American college students have ever had to ex press their opinions in an organized manner on the im portant issues confronting the nation," said Jolly. Jolly predicted CHOICE 68 would "cause a great impact on the national political ?iscene.--- '.yi: The questions on the ballot were composed by a na tionwide conference meeting in Washington, D.C. The con ference was attended by Presi dent Johnson who said this kind of vote from students was highly significant. The CHOICE 68 ballot lists 14 candidates and three referendum questions. The referenda concern U.S. involvement in Viet namalternate courses of military action and policy in bombing and priorities of tne MOSCOW A spokesman for the North Korean Embassy said Tuesday crewmen of the captured USS Pueblo will be punished for their "crimes."

North Korean patrol boats in the Sea of Japan on Jan. 23. One of three others were wounded. The threat made by Kan Cher Gyn, embassy counselor, came shortly before the United States issued its third warning in four days that punishment of the crewmen would be considered a "deliberate aggravation" of the crisis and could lead to serious consequences. By TONY LENTZ Special to The Daily Tar Heel UNC's delegation was named sixth out of over 200 schools at tending the 41st annual Na tional Model United Nations (NMUN) Sunday. The group, sponsored by the University and organized each year by the Di-Phi Senate, played the role of the Soviet Union at the four-day con ference in New York City.. The eleven-member delega tion was judged by faculty ad visers on the basis of its com petence, organization and style of presentation. Earl Hadden, delegation chairman, said organization was the key to the group's sue cess. ; "The only cohesive blocs' in the Model UN were the Arab and Communist," he said. The UNC team - faced the task of organizing the Com munist bloc4aiass resolutions favored by the Communists in, simulated committee and General Assembly debate situations. Group Coordinator Charles Gowen said the teams only real failure was the passage by the mock General Assembly of a resolution on Vietnam. "The real Soviet position," he said, "is that Vietnam should not be discussed at the UN. views of their assigned coun tries. "It takes a lot of work to learn the positions of your country on. various issues," said Hadden. "Our group was v:ell-researched, and visited the Soviet mission to double check the Russian policies. marrowly drawn and with precise standards and criteria and the redrafting cf more definite regulations is a matter for that legislative body to con sider as a question of policy." This is the first time that Bruton has stepped into the controversy surrounding the Speaker Ban. Deputy Attorney General Ralph Moody presented the case for the state. The statement also pointed out that the State is under no obligation to provide a sanctuary for the Communist party, or a platform for pro pagandizing its creed." However the statement did not touch on the question on whether the state had the right to regulate the speakers. It was under this area that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools threaten ed to withdraw accreditation of the University. . Rep ublican congressional candidate Walter Green of Burlington Tuesday announced that he had sent a telegram to Governor Dan K. Moore asking him to call a special session of the General Assembly to pass "clear, narrow and objective standards." Norman Smith, one of the at torneys for the plaintiffs in the case, said Tuesday that be "didnt think any decision cf ( r TV i. Others, however, just didn't do a speaker ban law which would Chairman failure was Hadden said the based on the fact the work." . "Vietnam has never been on the agenda of the UN," he con tinued.

Governor Moore's office had no comment on whether the telegram had been received or what action the Governor would take concerning Green's call for a special session. , The three judge special court had ruled the speaker ban law, passed in 1963, unconstitutional because it failed to establish Gov. Moore ... No decision yet the court could have been made that wouldn't leave the legislature open to pass a new law." Assistant Attorney General Ralph Moody , said that his of fice1 would study the court's decision before deciding whether to file an appeaL If an appeal is to be made it has to be made within 30 days, according to Smith, and the appeal would be heard by the VS. Supreme Court A decision by them, if the case were appealed, would come either this fall cr the following spring, he said. In the meantime the Speaker Ban Law, as amended in 1SCS, would stand. The judge struck down the law because it was too vague in that it was not definite cn who was a "known com munist" or who was a person "known to advocate the overthrow cf the constitution of the United States or the state cf North Carolina. These were the two re quirements the law set for not allowing a person to speak cn the campus cf a state sup ported college or university. The three judges said previous Supreme Court decisions had firmly established that a statute which either forbids or re quires the doing cf an act in terms so vague that men cf common intelligence must necessarily guess at its mean ing and differ s to its ap plication. . . violates the due process clause of the 14th Amendment because of its vagueness. Green, in his telegram to Moore, called for Che special session "to deal with any desirable changes to conform" with the federal court decision. Green is seeking the Republican nomination for the sixth district seat indents Will Re-Evaliiate Civil Rights Cloture Bill Fails WASHINGTON Rejecting a last-minute plea by President Johnson, the Senate narrowly refused Tuesday to end debate and , open the way to passing his civil rights bill. It may have killed the measure in this presidential election year. The vote against gagging debate was 55 to 37-just 7 votes short of the required two-thirds majority. Although Senate leaders hoped to resume talks on a compromise measure, there was doubt that agreement could be reached. With Senate GOP leader Everett M. Dirsken opposing the Cloture vote, the Senate's refusal to end debate had been a foregone conclusion. Only twice in 1964 and 1965 has the Senate imposed Cloture on a civil rights bill and both times it was Dirksen who rounded up the votes. ' . Allies Expect New Saigon Assault SAIGON Allied and Communist troops battled on three fronts on the Saigon outskirts Tuesday and Viet Cong artillerymen fired more big rockets into the Tan Son Nhut airbase complex housing the U.S. high command. Officials warned a big new Communist ground assault against Saigon might be imminent. In other sectors, U.S and government soldiers fought for con- trol of three key cities Hue on the north coast, Phan Thiet on the central coast and Song Be along the Cambodian border. At Hue, a battered batallion of U.S. Marines trying to knock out guerrilla pockets inside the ancient fortress were reported stalled for the seventh straight day. The Marines used irritant gas to try to rout the Communist force estimated at 400 men but made little headway. Fla. Pupils Join Teachers9 Strike TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Nearly a thousand students, rebelling against substitute instructors, joined their teachers Tuesday in the nation's first statewide teacher's strike. The students walked out of schools in towns surrounding the Cape Kennedy spaceport. Schools were closed in 17 of the state's 67 counties, and a survey indicated about 520,000 of the state's 1.3 million students were locked out of class in the second day of the strike. State school superintendent Floyd Christian said the strike was "a violation of everything we stand for in America it could ruin our whole school system." Latest state figures showed 24,776 teachers were on strike, while 33,340 came to school Tuesday. iThe candidates are: socialist Fred Halstead, Mark Hatfield, Lyndon Johnson, Robert Ken nedy, Martin Luther King, John Lindsay, ' Eugene McCarthy, Richard N i x o n , Charles Percy, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Rockefeller, George Romney, Harold Stassen, George Wallace.

By RICK GRAY - of The Dally Tar Heel Staff The political science depart ment, which' will be re evaluating its undergraduate curriculum in the next few months, has asked Student Body Vice President Jed Dietz and Experimental College leaders to interview students to sit on the faculty committee on re-evaluation. Both Dietz and faculty com mittee chairman Dr. Joel Schwartz think that this is the first time that students have been asked to join a faculty committee in re-evaluating a curriculum. This is the End of student participation," Dietz said, "which we have been talking about for some time now, m so meeting. The committee consists of Charles Robson, Donald Sear ing, Andrew Scott and Frederic Cleaveland, chairman far as it directly relates to the of the department Buck Goldstein and Roger Thompson, of the Ex perimental College, will be in terviewing interested students to meet with the faculty com mittee Friday afternoon. There will be a list at the GM Information Desk for students to sign. Goldstein and Thompson will contact the students prior to the Carol iea' Camapiis Goes Ivy League By BILL AMLONG of The Daily Tar Heel Staff Imagine the sprawling cam pus of the Uniyersity of Non-h Carolina as a - small New England women's, college with a 500 enrollment You cant, huh. Wel, Richard Wilson, who is a movie producer, c a n a n d that's what counts. - For Wilson has picked UNC CH as the persect place to film an untitled love story starring Yvette Mimeaux and Chris Jones which is supposed to Dr. Halbert Robinson, take pace on the campuses of a USSR Child Care Discussed Tonight "Child Care Provisions in the USSR" is the topic of tonights colloquium on Health Services for Mothers and Children, presented by the Department of Maternal and Child Health. Professor in the Department of Psychology and Director of UNC's Child Development Research Institute, will be featured. New England men's college and it's d a t i n g - g r o u n d s women's school. It shouldn't be too hard to pull off, Wilson said. He will use only the main part of the campus Polk Palce, for the college shots, and "as long as the glass eye points that way and that's all it shows, that's the truth of the Screen." "We might go as far afield as Morehead City, or Beaufort, S.C., for a theoretical Cape Cod location,", he said. - But the main part of the story for which rehearsals begin today will be shot on the Carolina campus, which looks "extraordinarily like the Ivy League schools," hesaid. Wilson , is using Carolina in stead of a genuine Ivy League location, he said, because of the weather condition; this is the easiest place to fake all the seasons that aren't in season, tor the story's one -year time span. "It's blanketed with snow in New England," he said, "and in those places where it's not blanketed, it's threatening to snow. "And it's just business to try to not sound film under It will have to snow here at least once more this month, however, if Wilson is to be satisfied. That's for the winter scene. "Everybody connected with the project has in his agree ment that he has to pray for snow, that it snows for at least one day and then that the snow goes away the next day." f Wilson, who - has formerly produced such films as "Invitation to a Gunfighter," starring Yul Brynner, and "Al Capone," with Rod Steiger, declined to , say what the budget was for the Hermes Productions film. He also declined to .reveal the plot, except to say it's a "love story, along with the story of a kid's sorta changing value as he grows up." The movie is based on an original screenplay, which has yet has no name except a working title of "The Come day." It will be distributed by American International. Filming begins Monday at a house near Durham, which will be portrayed as a Vermont ski lodge. Dr. Schwartz said that the ' department decided on the re evaluation last year, but decid ed to include students on the committee this semester. He added that he hoped the idea would be taken up by other departments and that they would, before any. re-pevaluation of curriculum consider the thoughts of the students. However, he said that the political science department's primary concern was "to put our own house in order." Dietz said, on the qualifica tions necessary to apply for the positions, "The students need not be political science majors and need not be whiz kids. What we are looking for is students who are willing to devote some hard work and energy to take part with the faculty members in order to re-evaluate the whole un-, dergraduate curriculum." The organizational meeting , of the committee Friday will be from 2-4 p.m. and will meet at the same time on each suc cessive Friday. Dr. Schwartz said that if enough students were in-; terested he would talk to them personally, if they were unable to attend the meetings.

'Approximately ten fraternities have already upgraded their pledge pro grams" said Myer, "making them more education oriented and less oriented to hazing. The other houses should do so also."

" tinue the revamping of the Myer suggested the IFC should require all houses to in itiate pledges two weeks before the first exam and urged that pledges be required to attend all classes. Myer said progress had been made in all the areas that had caused fraternities to be put on probation two years ago. "We've improved in one area and downgraded another," said Myer. "We've solved most of the problems that led to the bottle throwing and other social problems, but other areas have slipped." Myer said the other specific area was strict silence which court which started in his ad ministration, particularly in the area of strict silence viola tions. "We also tried a couple of ideas which . failed mainly because they were two years ahead of the times," said Myer. These ideas were the establishment of a food cooperative under which all fraternities would buy their food collectively and the establishment of another fraternity, the 25th on cam .pus. Myer promised that he would continue to work on the scholarship question. The IFC has been trying to change the A present rule which prevents students on scholarships from pledging fraternities. Myer urged the IFC to "collectively approach the en- a candidate for The Daily Tar dorsement of the editor of HeeL" . "I suggest that we have each candidate speak to the IFC to find out what approach each takes to fraternities." While urging the IFC to en dorse a candidate for editor, Myer made no comment on the candidates for president of the student body because ' a brother in my house is in volved in the campaign." Myer urged the IFC to work closely with the ad ministration. "The - administration's posi tion toward the fraternity system has changed from bad to leery. They now feel that the fraternity system can make a contribution to the University." 1,1 JULIK.MI.WW . . I. II I n j I L Randy Blyer . .
