To Be Studied
RALEIGH A settlement be
tween the Consolidated University
and State College students ap
peared', to be in the " offing here
yesterday as the Board of Trus
tees set up a, seven-man com
mittee to review the philosophy
behind the operation of student
supply stores and meet with stu
dents and merchants.
'There's no fight," said W. D.
Carmichael Jr. in speaking of the
supply store matter at State
College.
"My hope is that whatever pro
fits made by the stores be de
voted to scholarships for all stu
dents in need of financial aid.
Athletes shouldn't get preferen
tial treatment, but there should
be more scholarships for every
one." ; - .
He also hopes that there will
be more recreational facilities at
State College, pointing out, 'There
is still a wide disparity between
W.C., UNC, and State College."
5 George ; "Buck" Pruden, I State
student president, was introduced
to the trustees by Carmichael as
a "typical student." Pruden read

ment, saying, The campus goVr

Fellow-Member Clark
RALEIGH "The cold war is over' Governor Kerr Scott
remarked yesterday as he adjourned a. University of North
Carolina trustee group which, in effect, rebuked their fellow
member John .Clark.
The trustees at their meeting here accepted, by a 47-23 vote
a resolution branding the Greensboro industrialist's actions
concerning segregation and racial affairs as the work of an
individual and not representative of the board or its execu
tive committee, of which Clark is a member. , ,
Text of the resolution reads :n ; '
Trustees of the Greater Univer
sity that the statements and de
clarations of Mr. John W. Clerk
and his controversy with others
concerning segregation and ra
cial questions are his individual
responsibility, and the board
deems it inappropriate for it to
take official recognition of such
"matters."
Gray described the recent dis
pute between Clark and students
as a "hassle" characterized by
charges, counter-charges, and
counter-counter-charges." . I
Clark had Teen accused of "in
timidation" and "Gestapo like
tactics" by students who object
ed to inquiries he has made into
the background of students op
posing segregation.
Clark registered objections to
Gray's remarks several times.
First, he leaped to his feet as
Gray declared, ."I think that to
characterize the statements of
those with whom we disagree as
'dammed lies' . . . " "
Clark asserted he had been
misquoted by the Raleigh News
and Observer and the Associated
Press. -
"I'm very glad to know you
didn't say that . . . (If you did
not) I owe you a public apology,"
Gray said. "I do object to one
statement," he continued, "that
things are as bad in Chapel Hill
as they are in the State Depart
ment in Washington.V
Clark interrupted again, assert
ing he was "talking about the
fringe area around the University
. . . including the activities of
such people as the Rev. Charles
Jones (pastor of the Chapel Hill
Presbyterian church) and others
who are as bad as the Commun
ists in Washington."
Flustered Gray apologized
again.
"Perhaps it is I who am in
tolerant," the president later stat
ed, "because ! do not agree with
He glanced toward Clark.
"I assume and hope the public
and the press will consider an in
dividual trustee's action the ac-
tion of a citizen of the state un
less, authorized," Gray declared.
-; He asked that : the board clear
ly authorize activities done under
its name. "We will assume any
individual, just as any . individual
student, acts with full realization
that he is" acting as an individual
and not under the shield of the
University or this board," he said.
The University president reas
serted his fundamental belief in
the students freedom to object
and complain. But they must

Prior to the" meeting, the trust
ees received a -signed statement
from John' Sanders, Ed McLeod
and Dick Murphy in "which the
three UNC students declared that
students -should be allowed - to
inquire and think for themselves.
However, the statement assert
ed, "We do not conceive that by
becoming students in the Univer
sity in part by right as citizens;
in part by the payment of a large
share of the costs of our education
-we thereby are required to
forgo any right of immunity of
citizenship, including the right to
be free from irresponsible criti
cism, unfounded charges and
surreptitious and underhanded in
a.-
vestigations by " public oiiiciais,
wnatever xneir oojeci. in or ao we
forego the right to express ah un
popular opinion' without being

condemned as heretics."
All three students had been
criticized by uiaric, an outspoK-
en advocate of segregation.
Explaining his position at the
onset of the meeting, Clark listed
"18" charges against the "rotten
fringe" " of Chapel Hill. He also
attacked the Daily Tar 'HeeL the
Rpleigh News and Observer, and
Greensboro and Charlotte newis-'
papers. He ' described articles in
the papers . as the work of . "Oscar "
Coffin and his hatchet boys and
the NAACP; and their associates."
Among his "Iff charges" were
such ' items" as the activities ' of

"It is unfortunate," Clark said,
"that a Womans College com
mittee refused ia allow Billy
Graham to address them for fear
he might upset the girls emotion
ally." Then, Clark said, Bertram
Russell was permitted to speak
on the campus. He! described Rus
sell as an "atheist' and "advocate
of free love."
He called upon the trustees to
set up a committee of three to in
vestigate the situation . C!l oVJr
