NCC Co-Eds Form Committee
To Survey Local Night Clubs
A committee of six North
Carolina College co-eds is mak
ing a general survey of the
night clubs in the Durham area
to present to college officials in
an effort to gain permission to
patronize night clubs selling
“hard liquors,” according to
Louise Lathan, Dean of Wom
en.
The committee was formed by
OVER 200 NCCIANS PAUSE outside of St. Joseph’s Church where
they participated in a two-hour memorial service for the four Ne
gro girls killed while attending Sunday School in Birmingham,
Ala.
Over 200 Participate
In Sympathy March
Over 200 students, faculty
and staff members from North
Carolina College staged a
mourning march last week, in
honor of the four Negro girls
killed by a bomb in Birming
ham, Ala., while attending Sun
day school.
The march was co-sponsored
by the March On Washington
and the local chapter of the Na
tional Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People.
Participants in the march
gathered in the freshman bowl
on campus and marched quietly
on the side walk of Fayetteville
Street to St. Joseph’s Church,
where they participated in a
two-hour mourning service.
Many of the marchers carried
signs reading, “The Love That
Forgives: Birmingham, Septem
ber 15, 1963,” the text of the
Sunday school lesson during the
time of the bombing.
At the mourning services, the
NCCians heard several local
ministers and a civil rights lead
er eulogize the four deceased
bomb victims and denounce the
spirit which caused the catas
trophe.
The marchers were scheduled
to march on the downtown area,
but declined to do so “because
the services lasted too long,”
according to Morris Johnson,
first vice-president of the lo
cal NAACP chapter and organi
zer of the march.
Miss Evelyn B. Pope is the
new director of North Carolina
College’s School of Library Sci
ence. She was appointed to the
position last week by Dr. Sam-
Irma Page, president of women’s
assembly, after a unanimous
vote to do so was cast by NCC
co-eds attending women’s as
sembly here recently.
The names of the girls on the
committee were unattainable.
Dean Latham said that the
six co-eds will be concerned
with seven major aspects of the
night clubs:
Six Brazilian Students Visit NCC;
Laud Students, Exchange Pennants
Six leaders of the Guanabara
State Student Union, Brazil,
South America, visited North
Carolina College early this
week at the invitation of NCC’s
Student Government Associa
tion.
The students, ranging in age
from 23-30, were officially visit
ing the University of North Car
olina at Chapel Hill, under the
auspices of the U.S. Department
of State.
Their program is administer
ed by the National Social Wel
fare Assembly, and / they are
accompanied by a State Depart
ment escort-interpreter.
Jose Antabi, Humberto Ro-
malho Rodriguez, Michael Naby
Mattar, and Lauro Camargo
Rangel are law students; Or
lando Exposto is a student of
economics; and Antonio Jorge
Cerbino de Sucena is in the
school of medicine.
While here, the students ex
pressed their concern about the
present social protest being con
ducted by Negro college stu
dents, and Negro life in the
United States.

Lauro Camargo Rangel, student

American . . . Your forefathers

7. If the clubs provide spe
cial entertainment for college
students.
She said the committee will
not have permission to get first
hand knowledge by going to the
club because the present rules
for NCC co-eds will not allow
them to attend night clubs. The
information will have to be ob
tained from “reliable sources”
and “reputable persons in the
Durham community,” according
to Dean Latham.
