A Challenge To
The New Legislature
Will you, the duly elected representatives of the Thirteenth
Session of the Student Legislature, serve your constituents
and your University tor the best of your ability? I sincerely
hopeso, because, if you continue along the lines set down by
the recent sessions of Legislature there no longer will be a
need for your services -the Student Legislature will not de
. serve t? exist. Take a look at some of the facts and figures
taken from the records of the last session.
ATTENDANCE deplorable. An average of ten legislators
out of fifty were absent pach meeting (there are only six
regular meetings during a quarter.) At one meeting as many
as eighteen were conspicuous by their absence. The grand
total of absences for the nine meetings of Legislature this
session ninety-nine.
VACANCIES many and often.-Five appointments were
made to fill vacancies due to resignation however, six seats
remained unfilled, some since the second meeting of the ses
sion. Who was responsible?The party leaders in addition to
the individual legislators concerned. It is the responsibility
of a party leader to recommend immediately to the President,
a person to fill such vacancies. The parties failed to carry out
this obligation. Eleven legislators, consequently, after accept
ing the responsibility entrusted to them by the electorate,
failed to carry through with their duties.
Actual WORK accomplished little to speak of. Thirty
eight bills and resolutions were introduced twenty-three
were passed. Many of the remaining failed because of blind
party line voting. The bill oi one party was invariably op
posed by the opposition purely on the basis of traditional riv
alry. Twenty-three passed, only seven, in my estimation, have
produced any concrete results, and only three of the seven
were more than technical necessities. The three I speak of
are: the judicial revision concerning the Student Council and
the official setting up of the Medical and Dental School
Courts; tb re-districting of the town districts (temporary,
however, due to violent party differences); and filially, the
passing of the 1952-53 Budget amounting to almost $70,000.
(The Budget, however, was simply approved by the Legisla
ture, with a few changes and additions, after being .worked
out by a special Budget Committee appointed by the Presi
dent of the Student Body.
There you have t. Is this a record that you of the Thir
teenth Session" wish to live up to? You can profit by the mis
takes of those before you. On your shoulders rests a grave
responsibility." Remember, e?h Legislator personally repre
sents approximately 100 fellow students see tbem, talk with
them, and above ay, vote for them. The fate of the 'Student
Legislature at the University of North Carolina is now in your
hands. Make it or break it. v, .: - . -

The winner as in years past,

The blazing color portrait of
Yugoslavia's Marshal Tito
frowning from this week's cov
er of Life magazine testifies to
America's buddings interest in
our new communist "ally." -
Since 1949 the back alleys
and beer cellars of Yugoslavia
have been buzzing with a spicy
bit of gossip concerning Mar
shal Tito which sends American
news correspondents scrambling
for . their typewriters only to
have their "scoops" barbequed
by the Yugoslav censors.
The man in the borsht centers
around the. true Identity of the
swashbuckling comrade who
' runs Yugoslavia like a private
Coney Island concession. Ru
mor has it that the real Tito
-who blanketed the Slavic land-
scape with dead Nazis was
killed during the final days of
the war near Zagreb and the
man who rules in Belgrade to
day is a Czechoslovakian im
poster rushed in by the Yugo
slav communist party after the
liberation to stabilize the re
gime and prevent a Chetnik
Students -in Zagreb, workers
in Serbia, and headwaiters in
Ljubljiana whisper the same
story, each with his own galaxy
of conclusive "proof."
Soldiers close to Tito during
the war claim he , was missing
a finger from his left hand. The
Boss from Belgrade has all ten
digits beautifully intact. Slo
venian peasants say that the
Editor: '
My letter is in reply to Mr.
Robert Pace's letter printed in
today's Tar Heel (Sunday), and
to the other members of the Stu
dent Party who are determined
by one means or another to
separate the student body as a
whole into fraternity and non
paternity. The. student body as
a whole has been given to be
lieve that the U.P. is made up
entirely of fraternity men. I
myself am not a member of any
fraternity-yet I am a member
of the University Party. The

against heavy odds that were in
duced by a Student Party con-
present Tito recently visited his
aged mother in onrthern Slo
venia. When the official gold
braided retinue left for Belgrade
the crying woman was reported
to have said, "That was not my
. son."
The official Yugoslav reply
. to . this speculation is a scoff
and a dirty look. We may nev
er know whether today's Tito
is the same gallant leader of
the same gallant leader of the
Yugopartisans or merely an
imported fourflusher. But who

trolled Tar Heel, towards the
destruction of this idea of a
line between fraternity and
non-fraternity. We are all
members of U.N.C. and proud
of it, yet the Student Party
would try to say there is a dif
ference between us. The S.P.
is using the old. Nazi method oi
giving a group something to
hate and they will fight you.
The S.P. in the coming year
will probably spend their en
tire time in "constructive crit-'
icism" in other words they
will do everything in their
power to try to "fool" the stu
dent body into believing that
the UP. makes nothing but mis
takes. It would be typical of
their line of cheap propaganda
to try it. I have only one thing
to say to thatGo. ahead! Your
propaganda - instead - of - truth
line cost you the last election
not a so called "fraternity bloc
vote." The students as a whole
have caught on to you. Try the
same thing in the coming year
and the Student Party will go
the way of the "Campus Party.
While I am criticizing I would
like to give a complaint to the
Student Party also. You have
given to the Legislature one of
the best Representatives it has
I am speaking of Bill Brown.
He keeps posted in our district
the entire workings of the Leg
islature. I'm for getting mora
men of his calibre in there.
