John Scott, Time editor who
will speak tonight in Gerrard
Hall at 8 o'clock, has ignited the
spark of controversy among
journalists oyer objective or non
objective reporting during his
tour of colleges in North Caro
lina. In a Durham Sun editorial I
Time magazine was described as
"one of the most glaring examples f
among reputable publications of
"nonobjective reporting, of de
liberate distortion of the news
and of studied confusion of news
and, editorial matter, involving
the sometimes subtle and ap
parently intentional blending of
fact and opinion."
At the same time Scott was
referred to as "one of the chief
Tim e twist e re." The editorial con
tinues, Mr. Scott is well quali
fied to discuss nonobjective re
porting; but he seems, ironically,
to be arguing the wrong side.
When he addressed an audience
WilUam S. Wells, professor of
English and former dean of the
School of Arts and Sciences has
stepped into a job that he held
"pro tern" for five years.
Wells was elected chairman of
the University faculty in Decem
ber. As head of the arts and
sciences school, he had served
as chairman pro-tern in an ex
officio capacity since 1946 before
resigning from the post last
August. Proceeding him was Dr.
A- W. Hobbs.
In announcing the election of
Wells, Chancellor Robert S.
House commented, "Professor
Wells is one of the best liked and
most influential men in the
Wells special interest in Eng
lish literature is Edmund Spenser
and the Renaissance period- He
is also an expert In the field of
bibliography. .
A "marvelous" acquirement is
the description that the Chancellor
cave in relating the story of how
Professor Wells came to Carolina.
While Wells was studying for his
Ph. D. at Stanford University,
another student, George Sensa
baugh, was also preparing for his
Ph. D. degree in English here.
The two schools agreed to ex
change the two scholars and
since then both men' have dis
" tinguished themselves at their
adopted : universities; House
pointed out.
As University administrator of
the military programs in World
War II, Wells did a brilliant job
and was commended by both
faculty and students.
The chairman of the faculty
represents the chancellor in all
academic matters at the chan
cellor's request. Wells is also
chairman of the faculty committee
on plans and projects . i .

A "Kefauver for President
movement has taken form here
with the announced plans for a
University "Kefauver" club.
Instigated by Lloyd Gardner,
Chapel Hill realtor who is work
ing with a state "Kefauver for
President" group in Raleigh, and
promoted by Hugh Wells, third
year law student from Shelby,
the local club is scheduled for
an inaugural meeting in the near
Gardner, a veteran of three
years laison work with Congress
in Washington and personally ac
quainted with the Senator, is
firmly convinced that Kefauver
can and should be the next pres
ident. "In those three years I never
knew a more sincere, honest, and
responsible Senator,' Gardner
says. "The country could certainly
use a man of his caliber as pres
ident at this time," says he.
Speaking of Kefauver' s foreign
and domestic policies, Gardner
states 'The Senator adhers to
principles of liberal international
aid in fighting communism, with.
the North Atlantic Treaty Organi
zation as the major instrument
in that battle, and of morality
and efficiency in government
officials in Washington."
Eisenhower's expressed views
as a liberal Republican, says he,
are very similiar to those which
Kefauver had previously advo
cated. "When the Republican
party swiags so much support
behind such liberal policies, it
i3 a good indication that the
Democrats can supply the man
for the job, Kefauver."

freshman seat tie which has been

William Barnes and Fred
Hutchins, have agreed to take a

the candidate will be awarded
the commission of Ensign, c?
