Mr. Graham rapped Governor A. W.
McLean’s policies in that he stressed
the need of unstinted educational re
sources, not to be impaired by a de
crease in financial support. “The col

“and North Uarolina must not hinder
their development, for in doing so she
dwarfs hm; )\vn life.”

evening by Professor Graham, an en

over by Earle E. Hives. II. II. Frazier,
