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.

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.
