Hark The Sound.
Today is May Day. To millions of Americans it means a
cay of sunshine, laughter, maypoles with candy-colored
streamers, and beautiful women.
Eut while we dance and play in the sweet air of freedom,
r. million singing slaves of the Soviet Union will pack Red
Square in Moscow to pay homage to Marshall Stalin and
clicer their comrades the world over onward to a sweeping
overthrow of the "fascist elements, of reaction."
Th. first of May is the day communists all over the globe
haveT.chosen to unfurl their ideology and fling it into the
faces of the free world. You would be amazed at the number
of people who are thinking about you today. Thinking and
hating you and your way of life with a venomous passion
unequaled in all history.
The Kremlin celebrates tonight. And the streets of Paris
will vibrate with the frenzied, cries of a proletarian mob
urging the "Yankee swine" to pack up the Marshall Plan
and go home. American MP's in the western sector of Ber
lin may. have to use tear gas to keep the parading hordes
of communist youth from overflowing the boundaries of their
own cesspool into the Allied zone of Germany. .
Loud, cackling laughter will echo out of Rome as General
Eisenhower ,is hanged in effigy and the civil police in Oslo,
Brussels", and Copenhagen will work overtime to keep
violence at a minimum. American embassy staffers through
out. Latin American will peer out the window into the hate
infected faces of workers screaming "Down with el imperial
is?? yanqui" and report to Washington "An ti-American"
sentiment less pronounced than in years past."
Communist parties in Africa, China, and the Middle East
will .renew, their charges of "germ warfare,? "parachuted
potato bugs," . and "Korean babies impaled on American
bayonets." Top party leaders in Bulgaria and Albania will
yelp with delight as Asiatic mothers explain to their curious
children that the red flags mean, "freedom" and the hammers
and sickles mean "food for everybody" and the American
flag (burning in the gutter) symbolizes exploitation, "oppres
sion, and gasoline jelly bombs. ... J.. k -
Tomorrow the force of the hate binge will have been
spent. The blazing? banners- and propaganda posters will be
torn from the walls by' the local garbage disposal services
(except in those areas where the communists - have gained
control of municipal government) and the followers of Marx
and Lenin will simmer down to another year of lies, deceit,,
and silent subversion. x
These world-wide reverberations of animosity cannot be
laughed off as our nation trots blissfully around the may
pole. But we predict that the day is coming when the Red
tidal wave dwindles to a riplet because the peace-preaching
hucksters of ? hate have bverlooked one vital axiom, as old
as algebra, which persistently leaps forward out of history
to crush every dictator bent ori world domination.
: "'Many will fight for power, but many more will fight to
be free."

Gene Kellv and I didn't have
much in common until "Sing
in in the Rain" hit the campus.
I was "A Fellow With An Um
brella" and he was just another
"American in Paris." Until last
Friday night, when someone
1eyed my umbrella resting from
its labors of the yearly Chapel
Hill monsoon on the back porch
of Mclver dorm, I was "Oh So
Dry." But the monsoon must
have been too much for this
dry land cassanova. In a flash
he was singing "You Were
Meant For Me" to my over
worked but ever-ready guardian
against the skies.
I don't have a sentimental
attachment for it because I
ushered Eisenhower into SHAPE
headquarters with it, covered
Jan Peerce as he entered Memo
rial hall, or walked with-Cyd
Charisse under it (who could
walk?). 'It's just that my gal and
I like it. It keeps us, whoops,
kept us dry.

I'm downright . disappointed
with the reaction the gals in
Mclver had over the little sere
nade the dorm boys whipped
up last week. 'It had all the
tenderness and beauty that any
serenade had all it lacked was
a little polish. Granted that the
fraternity did a better job but
it wasn't spontaneous like the
other. Them f rat boys probably
practiced all night and kept
everybody in the neighborhood1
up for two-three weeks just to
" get in that last little note. Now
girls, you just don't appreciate
the honesty that was in the
second phase of your hectic
night. Just because all the boys
didn't know the words and none
knew the music didn't mean
that they were not sincere. You
just got no appreciation for the
rustic arts.
And because of that lack of
appreciation you caused those
boys to be frustrated all night.
After the cops came the second
time they decided you just didn't
like -it. With all that emotion
pent up inside them they had
to go down and sing to the
boys in the lower quad. It was
not as tender and sweet as the
doses you got but at least the
lower quad understood and ap
preciated. All but one, that is.
He called the gendarmes ;again ,
and before the night was 'over
there were some bad impressions
Those boys were genuinely
torn up about the whole I night
and one says he'll never sing
another note. You, Mclver Re
sidents who prefer perfection to
honesty, will bear that on your :
conscience all the rest of your
life. Shame, shame " on you.

What Others Are Saying
A major change is taking place
on- college campuses over the
nation. 1"Rah-rah:, exuberance is
giving way to sober purpose
fulness and hazing is being re
placed by . acts of community
service. Today's college student
is more mature, responsible and
studious than his predecessors.
So reports Robert Stein, editor
and author, . after surveying
more than 100 colleges and uni
versities and talking with col
lege presidents, deans, profes
sors, guidance counselors and
students. He describes his find
ings in an article on "How Wild
Are College Students?" in the
May issue of U.S.A., the Maga
zine of American Affairs, out
today. '
"Unfortunately," says Mr.
Stein, "an. account of several
dozen brawling, Tioting students
makes more dramatic reading
than the story of 2 Ms million
young men and women quietly
and efficiently going about the
business of learning." That's the
reason, he explains, why the
big change sweeping over col
lege campuses has gone almost

It was a cold, bleak day this
last weekend of April -'and-plans
for a "sexcursion" to the beach
didn't seem as if they would
work out. My classes for the
day were almost completed and
as the rain came down harder
and harder, I- was thinking more
and more of a trip home rather
than to the. shivering, seashore.
Mind made up, I found myself
at home " Friday evening and
busily telephoning for dates
who resent their being asked
for a nine o'clock date at eight
thirty. Aside from all the dis
appointments from the feminine
t brood, there is always some
thing . superrcolossally disastrous
about my weekends away from
Chapel Hill. This weekend was
no exception.
Saturday morning was dreary
as it was all over the state and
I was' cruising along in the
family car on a home chore when
out of the misty muddle of
things comes a careening Cadi

. at our family's four-wheeler.

to the left of me was an un
interested cocker spaniel, and to
the right of me was a curb,

One clear evidence of the new
atmosphere is revealed in the
decline of hazing and prank
playing and the diversion of
energies they formerly con
sumed to such acts as putting up
student dormitories, painting
and repairing homes of needy
families, and performing other
community services, Mr. Stein
writes. He cites Wilmington
College in Ohio, where students
put in up to 400 hours each
in constructing a $200,000 dorm
itory,, which, because of their
free labor, cost the , school less
than $18,000.
College authorities arje in
general agreement, he found,
that despite headlines about
campus disorders today's under
graduates are more serious,
sober and hard-working than
earlier students. They have high
ideals, level heads, and are
solemnly - preparing, with the
confidence and courage of youth,
for the "grave responsibilities
which will soon be theirs," he

the .hill and onto the lawn was
where the car and I went.
The Cadillac sped past, and
worst of all the detached

looking back. I looked at the
huddled mass of bent pistons
and at the arrogant. cocker
striding down .the highway.
