' nternational Secretariat Is Set To Coordinate Student A new -International secretariat whose purpose is to coordinate the work of the various national unions of students in the Student Mutual Assistance Program arose from a meeting of representa tives of 26 countries in Edin burgh, Scotland, January , 3-8. The - Coordinating Secretariat headquarters will be in Holland, probably in Leiden. It will be under the continuous scrutiny of a Supervisory Committee con sisting of the USNSA, and the National Unions ot England, France, . Sweeden, , and Holland. This is not a new international union of students and is not di rected against the communist controlled International Union 'of Students. It was established be cause the latter organization was unable to put aside political con sider atipns : and cooperate on practical projects, with non-communists. The IUS and student un ions from communist . countries were invited (to attend; the meet ing, 'in i Edinburgh, - but, none ac cepted the invitation. The com NCC AI umni For E sche DURHAM A move will be made by the North Carolina College Alumni Association to have the State Legislature pro vide for escheats to all of North Carolina's State-supported schools. The change would call for a constitutional amendment, as the constitution states all escheats go to the Consolidated University. . To amend the con- stitution would require passage by a three-fifths majority of both houses of the Legislature and a majority vote by the public in a general election. Prof. James T. Taylor of Dur ham, president of the alumni group, said the fact that' all es cheats go to the University of North Carolina "means that sev eral of the smaller white institu tions in North Carolina and all of the state - supported schools for Negroes receive no benefits from these funds." If a person dies without leav ing a will or aisy heirs, an in come tax refund check, salary checks or any other type of pay ment that is unclaimed, the mon ey reverts to the Consolidated University of North Carolina es cheats fund. The eschests fund was barely bigger than, a piggy bank when the first escheats officer was ap pointed, but it totals $1,404,305 now and is used as a scholarship fund for students attending one of the University's schools. "We have not scratched our po tential. If they would give me some laws with teeth I could double the size , of the fund in three years or I'd quit my job," Kemp S. Cates, present escheats officer said yesterday in Chapel Hill. : His office is located on second floor Graham Memorial in the Student Activities office. He said a few co-ops, mills, to bacco companies, hospital asso ciations, electric and telephone utilities, railroads banks, and munist press in England was very abusive of the conference and charged this . group with trying to "divide the student community by setting tip a rival organiza tion." Communist students pick eted the building at Edinburgh University where the meeting was held. , NSA was one of the leaders in setting up this secretariat. A res olution passed at the Fourth Stu dent Congress held at- Minne apolis last August called for the establishment of such a secre tariat; NSA's president and in ternational vice-president work ed for this at the Edinburgh con ference. The Student Mutual Assistance Program is aimed at giving technical assistance on problems such as student housing, employ ment, health, etc.-, by increasing the exchange of ideas, informa tion and persons. The secretariat will coordinate . the . work of the national unions, thus eliminating overlapping, duplication of work, and wasted effort. ' Head Asks onavio, - other corporations are. voluntar ily turning over their unclaimed funds. Cates has sent letters to the State's hundreds of mills and manufacturing plans asking," How come?" But, he added, "They never seem to care to reply?' '. The University f bends over backward in an effort to avoid legal action for. what it considers rightfully belongs to the escheats fund. Cates emphasized that re gardless of how; long escheats money has been held,, it is re turned to rightful owners : when they present legitimate claims. ; In 1947 Cates asked the State Legislature for authority to look into unclaimed accounts" held by the State's numerous cotton, to bacco, and other co-ops. "My pleadings, never got to commit tee," he said "The co-op lobby ists were stronger than I and n't apply to co-ops." The escheats fund is handled by the Wachovia Bank and Trust Co. in the form of a permanent trust. During the last fiscal year the fund returned a yield of 3.9 per cent and was worth $50,- 000 in scholarships to about 320 students. The scholarships are given to needy, worthy Tar Heel residents and are worth $100 a year at N. C. State and Women's College. Here they are good for tuition for a. year. As the fund grows, the greater will be the number of scholarships. Union Work T- it' -1 i 'li ing countries attended the Con ference: Australia,' Austria, Bel gium. Brazil.
