The Tightening Noose
"The noose has tightened about the neck of academic free
dom and freedom of political action and thought in Pennsyl
vania." This is the lead paragraph of an editorial in Penn
State's Daily Collegian, which continues, "So the time is
growing short for the people of Pennsylvania."
This frightened piece of writing concerns the approval of
a required loyalty oath for all state employees by a legislative
One bright spot remains in the country-wide loyalty oath
situationCalifornia, which was the center of the academic
loyalty oath controversy for many months, has the oath no
longer. A state court declared it illegal last April.
The two points of view may be seen again in last Fall's
Pennsylvania contest. In favor of the loyalty oath were Gov
ernor S. Finex and state veterans organizations. These people,
and the legislators who backed them up asserted cordially
that they did not wish to curb educational philosophy, so long
as it "goes in the right direction," but only wished to protect
state institutions from communistic infiltration.
Opposed to the oath in Pennsylvania were teacher organi
zations, labor unions, civil rights groups, the presidents of
Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, and Temple Univer
sity. Spokesmen for the opposition group avowed that the bill
was "typical fear reaction."
One spokesman said, "Loyalty oaths will hinder rather
than help the fight against communism . . . in general creates
a climax of opinion unhealthy for a democracy."
Perhaps more troublesome to thinking North Carolinians
than the controversies elsewhere, is the lack of controversy
in this state. We point once again to the hidden loyalty oath
required of all employees of this University.
Letters To The Editor
Dear Ma'm:
All us swamp critturs gone
give you a big hug for bringing
to the pages of The Daily Tar
Heel that greatest of 'em all
We been all tore up 'cause
none of the newspapers around
here seem to know Pogo and
Albert the Alligator and
Churchy a Femme and we
missed the little fellows. We
is even gone so far as to take
the gentlemen of the fourth es
cape to task with letters of in
quiry, But they didn't even give
us so much as a polite etaoin
Now, Mi'm Editor, Pogot has
foimd a home. We who love the
boy thank you for restoring
him to his proberabobble niche
in society. .
Henry Sieela
Madam Editor:
An open letter to the manage
ments of the Carolina Theater
; and Varsity Theater:
It would seem fair that when
admission prices to your good
motion' pictures (Le., "A Street
car Named Desire", "David and
Bathsheba'Y etc.) are increased,
, there would, be a corresponding
reduction'" for some of the trash
, 1 1 that passes as movies (i.e., "The
! Mafw Carpet").
What do you think?
Jack W. Hopkins
Ve take the liberty to point
cut that the management of the
.two, theaters do not increase the
cdmission on their good movies.
It Is the, producers who do so.

Not Guilty

Belgrade, Nov. (Delayed)
-John Clews' (the great Briton)
and I were salvaging a salami
between gulps of black Turkish
coffee this morning in the lobby
of the Hotel Prague when Mitka,
our guide, interpreter, and red
tape slasher, came by to take
us out to the University of Bel
grade. Mitka is an avid Marxist and
he's as happy with his com
munism as a child with a
bright red tricycle. Like all
good Yugoslavs he loves Tito,
hates Stalin, and respects Tru
man. His . beaming smile and
electric wit helps ease the ten
sion that flares whenever we
try to throw our ideology in
each other's face.
We headed down Red Army
Boulevard toward the Univer
sity, after irrigating our break
fast with a flask of Serbian plum
wine. (Wine is a "must" three
times a day in Yugoslavia.
You'd need a good bootlegger
to get a glass of ice water.)
. my throat.
The University of Belgrade,
located 42 miles from advanced
units of the Soviet Army, has
6,000 students (half coeds)
unlimited class cuts, a brand
new air raid shelter, and a
cocktail bar of, by, and for the
students. Tuition is paid largely
by the State and families having
children in school receive u"b
sidies from the Government to
cover rooms and board. Medics!
service is also provided by tho
State and mountain rest homes
are run for students, who havo
"overworked themselves in the
interest of the people.
The two yearly vacations,
fifteen days in January and tea
weeks in summer, are taken up
by military training and voIuzjk
teer construction projects. Dup
ing the war the University w3
the center of the anti-Nazi
underground resistance and
Slavic Joe College participated
in such extra-curricular acti
vities as blasting gasoline dumps,
ripping up railroad track, and
decapitating sentries.
As we rounded the corner by
the Czechoslovakian Embassy
(temporarily out of business) it
was like stepping clear across
the Atlantic back into the middle
of tne Y-Court. '
The front steps of the Uni
versity Administration Build
ing were swarming witlvunder
grads rehashing last Saturday's
footbalf game, bumming ciga
rettes, cursing instructors for
an untimely pop quiz, and flirt
ing with coeds who pretended
not to be interested. Mitka in
troduced us and as soon as he
uttered the magic word "Ameri
kanatz" everybody turned on me
and unleashed their violent
Slavic hospitality. They messed
up my hair, slapped me on the
spine, crushed my hand, and
expressed other- signs of Bal
kan affection. Every time I
opened my mouth somebody
would either fill it up with
brandy, thrust a lighted ciga
rette between my lips, or har- SS ,
poon a salami sandwich down M:J"?
