THE DAILY TAR HEEL Pae5 '''yjy' Tuesday, April 9, 1968 Silent Sam's Dignity Restored G a per 267 By LOUISE JENNINGS of Tht Dav Tar Heel Staff A group of students from Edwards House of Morrison received both compliments and complaints Monday for "trying to restore Silent Sam's dignity." Over the weekend some unknown party covered the statue of Silent Sam with orange, green, red and yellow irredescent paint, the Morrison students were trying to remove it with turpentine, rags and small files. During the five or six hours the group was working passers-by had varied reac tions. Many volunteered to donate contributions to the price of turpentine. Two law students went into town and bought rags. The group said they were "most often accused of being either KA pledges or the persons accused of painting Sam." To let people know of their "honorable intentions" they placed two small confederate flags on Sam's shoulder and on the butt of his rifle. A psychology faculty member reportedly asked the Chancellor to have the flags removed. Later the Assistant Dean of Men approached the group and asked that the flags be remov ed "so as not to create an embarrassing situation," one of the boys who was cleaning the statue explained. He then took the flags but told the students they could have them later. Campus safety director Author J. Beaumont passed by when the students were working and said "if you find out who painted him don't in volve us," according to one of the students cleaning the statue. Otelia Connor passing by reportedly "praised her boys" and told them they were "her brothers." A faculty member in the .lis great grandfather had fought in the Confederacy. A Chapel Hill businessman offered to let the boys spend the night in his downtown of fice to look out for anyone else who might try to paint Sam. .A bearded student with orange and green paint on his clothes retvortedlv told them admissions office gave his ap- "Don't worry; it can always quiz in forty-five minutes,' yruvai 10 me group ana saia happen again." said. The students cleaning Sam were mostly freshmen and sophomores from North Carolina. They worked from 11:00 until about 4:30. Perhaps the best tribute to their labor came from one stu dent who was sitting at the base of the statue studying a notebook.
