Starts With Law School
Clark Adds Fuel To Issue
by Bruce Mellon
The big news story of this past
quarter was, as was last year
and last quarter, segregation. Al
though not as big an issue this
quarter as in previous quarters,
it got several headlines in The
Daily Tar Heel.
Beginning with the January
15 issue it popped up, off and on,
on the news pages until Feb
ruary 29.
The first break came this
ouarter when the Law School
Association voted to" hold their
annual spring dance for all mem
bers of the law school. This was
heralded as a step toward the
breakdown of segregation, but
it didn't last long. The next day
Chancellor Robert House issued
a ruling that unsegregated dances
could not be held at the Univer
sity. " ',; ' " - :
This incident was to snowball
into a bigger story later although
at the time no one knew it.
On January 30, the Dialectic
Senate voted on and passed a bill
calling for the repeal of segrega
tion and discrimination laws in
North. Carolina. Several days
later, John W. Clark, member of
the Board of Trustees, sent a
letter to the president of the Di
asking for the names of the per
sons voting for the bilL
The Di answered Clark on Feb
ruary t 21 stating they did not
wish to battle with him over the
issue and invited him to inspect
the records of the meeting.
On February 14, a week before
the Di answered Clark, -Dick
Murphy wrote a letter to the
editor, which appearing on the
front page of the DTH only added
more fuel to the smoldering issue.
- The climax was to come on
March 1 at the meeting of the
Board of Trustees in Raleigh.
At the meeting the board re
buked Clark for writing letters
to students and other people as
a member of the Board but not
as a private citizen. '
On March 6, Clark renewed his
attack on advocates of anti-segregation-by-writing
a letter to
the Student Council at Woman's
College in Greensboro.
Probably the biggest news story
of the quarter to the general col
lege students here was the re
duction of required courses. The
action came on February 2, the
Faculty Counicl acting on a re
commendation from a student-
Faculty Council acting on a re-

four electives. They cut one of
the language, English and social
science courses. ,
Dr. Clifford P. Lyons provided
the third big story of the quarter
when he was appointed the new
dean of the school of arts and
sciences. He replaced Dr. Wiliiam
Wells, who resigned at the be
ginning of the fall quarter, on
February 12.
The biggest student govern
ment story of the quarter was the
voiding of the constitutional
amendment election. The election
was held on February 19, but
due to several irregularities it
was thrown out by the election
board. A second date was set by
the legislature, but was contested
and thrown out by the Student
Council due to the fact that six
days public notice was not given.
The election was finally, set to
be held at the sametime as the
general ' election in April. The
two amendments were: revision
of the judicial system and a re
duction in the size of the legisla
ture. The misuse of State funds pro
vided the opening issue of The
Daily Tar Heel with its lead story.
During the Christmas vacation, a
case ' concerning the misuse of
State funds by the University
employees was referred to the
University for investigation. The
matter is still allegedly under in
vestigation by the University al
though no report has been made.
Rounding out the top of the
news picture for the quarter is
probably the awarding of a Car
negie fellowship to Dean of Stu
dents Fred Weaver and the ap
pointment of Roy Holsten, '50
graduate, as assistant dean to
take over in his absence -

Lack Of -Knowledge Of Cancer Is Killing
housands Of Americans, Kirkman Says
(Special to The Daily Tar Heel)
Charlotte, March 6 The"vital
job of ..educating our people about
lite -facts" of cancer is one of the
cM2f aims of the American Can
cer Society," O. Arthur Kirkman,
High Point,"state chairman of the
annual campaign for funds spon
sored by the. North Carolina Di
vision of the Cancer Society, said
her 2 today.
"The lack of knowladge about
cancer is killing countless thous
ands every year," he declared,
pointing out that ignorance and
fear of the .disease must be rout
ed. Chairman Kirkman addressed
members of District 7 of the State
Division at the Charlotte Woman's
Ciub here today. Other district
meetings will be held in Lumber
too March 7, Burlington March
10, Clinton March 11, Tarboro
March 12, Washington March 13
and Elizabeth City March 14. At
each meeting plans will be map
ped for the campaign to be held
in 5nril.
Mrs.- George E. Marshall, Mt.
Aky, State Commander and Ex
ecutive Vice-President presided
over today's session.
Great progress is being made
in educating the public, Kirk
ma a said and in 1950 "54 percent
dt the people could name one or
more of the seven danger signals
of cancer. In 1940, only 38 per
cent had such knowledge.
; "We still don't know what caus
es cancer, but science has made
great and 'important strikes in its
treatment and cure. However,"
he emphasized, "to do us any good
physicians must be brought face
t face with cancer victims1 in
tfme. And terror and ignorance
lr event this. Ignorance keeps us
nals ad - terror paralyzes our
judgment when we do suspect the
Kirkman said the old supersti
tion that "cancer is incurable"
causes the terror responsible for
people not going to the doctor in
time to catch the disease before
it spreads.
He pointed out that the Ameri
can Cancer Society "is doing to
the best of its ability and the
limit of its finances" the job of
educating the public. "Films,
technical and popular,' are being
produced to teach the layman and
his physician what to look for
that might mean early signs of
cancer," he said.
"In this way ACS hopes to save
many of the 22,000,000 Ameri
cans, now living, who will die of
cancer if present rates continue
and if something isn't done to
teach them the folly of ignorance
and terror."
