Interview 200 Men
Over 50,000 Miles
Members of the special committee of the Board of Trustees
of the consolidated University, appointed by Governor Kerr Scott
to recommend a successor to Dr. Frank P. Graham for the presi
dency, traveled more than 50,000 .miles and interviewed more
than 200 men.
f Victor S. Bryan of Durham, chairman of the committee, ' re
, vtiilcd this yesterday in the committee's final report to the
' Trustees. .
I Gordon Gray, Secretary of the Army and Winston-Salem pub-
, lisher, has been recommended by the Nominating Committee and
the Executive Committee of the Trustees, and their report will be
presented to the full Board at its meeting here tomorrow.
Detailed progress of the Nominating Committee in its search
r for a new President was revealed for the first time in the Com
jnittce's, final report.
I The first meeting was held May 6, 1949, the final one Jan. 21. The
i committee met frequently during that nine-month period. Most
of the members attended every meeting. '
"Much of the expense for travel by .the committee has been
; borne by members of the committee individually," Chairman Bryant
, uid. t
In beginning its work the committee carefully screened the
membership of the faculties of the three units of the University,
and 26 members from the three institutions were given serious
There were 93 names originally on a list suggested for con
sidcration by a faculty committee of 28 members, representing the
three units of the consolidated University.
The faculty committee eventually suggested 30 names it con
sidered worthy of further appraisal, and of these 30 the faculty
committee finally designated eight "who deserved very serious
i consideration," Chairman Bryan's committee report reveals.
At several sessions of the nominating committee, faculty mcm
- bers and students appeared and made helpful suggestions, both as
to qualifications desired in the new President and as to names to be
I considered, the report says.
Suggestions from alumni, from the heads of leading institutions
i throughout the country, from educational foundations .and from
various other sources were also solicited.
, The consolidated University faculty committee of 28, the report
' says, recommended that the new President possess, among others,
the following qualifications: . . ,
, "1. He should be a man of distinction in some field of learning
1 '"2. lie should" be"an intellectual leader with a clear and practi
cal concept of current social needs.
t "3. He should be familiar with the University-State relation
' ships, and if possible should have someknowlcdge of problems in
I North Carolina, or at least should be native in thought in dealing
I with North Carolina's problems, particularly those of an educa
' tional nature.
"The South, just as every other section of the nation, has a
distinct culture, the preservation of which we consider highly
"Without losing sight of the dangers of provincialism, we feel
that the preservation of our State's traditions should naturally be
a matter of concern to the head of the State's highest educational
institution, and the custody and protection of these traditions should

the University's first annual
Campus Chest campaign.
Dean, of Students Bill Friday
said, "We all hope that the Cam

Bill Mackie, president of the
student body, offered, "This year,
for the first time in history, all
of the many worth-while organ
izations which solicit funds op
this campus are being combined
into one Campus Chest drive.
This drive is the result of many
complaints from students that
they were being 'touched' for
money at practically every turn.
"I hope that air students 'will
take advantage of the Chest and
contribute to it generously, with
the assurance that they will not
be solicited again this year; and,
with the knowledge that if this
drive fails we will be back next
year to the old system of weekly
drives from all corners of the

last week for the Weil lecture
series, said of the Drive: "Any
thing that students do at the pre

In answer to charges which,
have in the past been levelled
at certain relief agencies of
being Communistic or sympa

cause, the Campus Chest co
mmittee released the following
statement yesterday from the
United States State Department.
"No United States voluntary

is accorded the right to con
duct its activities free of politi
"In many instances the re
lief given by U. S. agencies go
to those groups who are not
active supporters of the par
ticular government, as they are
the groups most frequently in
need due to denial of ration
cards on the part of the gov
ernment. "Where American relief can
continue it is, we believe, of
great value in keeping alive
in these countries the know
ledge that Americans ,are in- '
terested in assisting the people
who are in need.

On Stage Requirements For Dance
By Charlie Gibson
Iva Kitchell, top comedienne
of the dance world, will have the
Student Entertainment Commit
tee doing a bit of dancing around
campus, too, to fulfill a novel set
of stage requirements for her
performance here on Tuesday,
14, in Memorial Hall.
The SEC has had a compara
tively easy task with 4ts three
presentations on record this year
as far as pre-conduct stage di
rections go. While Burl Ives and
Franz J. Polgar each made only
a post card's worth of stipula
tions about lighting, intermis
sions, and properties, the ; Don

backstage conference - with - Me
morial Hall technicians only 15
minutes before curtain-time.
However, the celebrated Miss
Kitchell, who has reaped fame
and fortune by kidding the tights
off of the capitalized "Dance" re
cently, notified the SEC that
about two dozen more pains
would be taken for her. And the
long letter, full of "do's" and
"don'ts" so obviously meant bus
iness that the committee expects

Miss Kitcheel has ordered that
the stage be set with two straight
or folding chairs and two hat
trees (no further explanation).
She wants the floor scrubbed
clean of wax and oil the day of
the performance. She also re
quested that no disinfectant be
used in the building on Feb. 14
(again no explanation). V .
Although no special recon
struction of Memorial Hall is
anticipated as yet, Miss Kitchell
expects the stage a certain width
