The Daily News extends its heartiest congratulations to Orville
Campbell, editor, and the whole staff of the Daily Tar Heel for its
eye opening special edition of May 10. Here at last is a panorama of
the activities of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill;
both in style and content it is excellent. "We have tried to make it
comprehensive," says the editor.

hangs. Behind the scenes Harris
worked on the legislature, keeping
out of the public eye because he
knew his own value in publicity and
didn't want to kill the bill by being
openly connected with it. To Harris,
if to anybody, goes the credit for
salvaging student government from
a hopeless morass of apathy and in
suring it against the forages of
South building's big guns.
Harris is one of the most cunning
politicians on the campus. It was he

To the Editor:
I have been much interested in
your championing of the coopera
tive housing question. I believe
a properly managed co-op house is
one of the best good-citizen-developing
agencies in college life. I have
heard my father tell how it was
done in his day in the famous old
"clubs" at the famous old schools.
In my , own student days I knew
students, both girls and men, and
among them some of the most bril
liant stars on the campus, who were
members of such organizations and
enthusiastic about them. I have
watched the movement grow. This
year a group you have named "fam
ous" have been my-near neighbors.
I saw them move in with mis
givings because some of our stu
dent neighbors last year had been a
menace to peace and property. But
these boys have done a good job.
As the movement grows here I think
they' should be honored as a sort
of Founding Fathers group for the
good name they have given the co
op idea and the good example they
have worked out for future groups
to follow. I believe the zoning regu
lations of the village should be held
fast as a wise protection to property
owners. But surely some way can
be found to do that and still house
groups like these co-op neighbors of
mine. A quiet place to live is a
necessity to real student, meaning
study, life. So the enjoyment of it
becomes one of the "fundamental
freedoms" of citizenship in a college
community. The fifth column sort
who would creep in to turn liberty
to license we must hold in check and
cast out. But a group who would
share, not shatter, the blessing
should be more than welcome.

To the Editor:
Sound and Fury wants to thank
the Daily Tar Heel for making Sa
turday's "Are you Kiddin'?" pos
sible and for the opportunity cf
helping raise money for the Tar
Heel Social Room Fund. The ex
perience of having a sponsor behind
us was an entirely new and an al
together delightful one, and with
out your generous cooperation, the
show wouldn't have been possible.
If the audience, and particularly
the Seniors, had as much fun at
"Are you Kiddin'?" as we did, we're
satisfied. If the Tar Heel worried
as much about the show beforehand
as we did, we're sorry. Thanks
again- for helping us with our show,
and best success to the Tar Heel
Social Room Fund.
