Around the middle of July five hundred athletes followed by a hundred thousand happy sports fans from seventy one nations put their hates, prejudice, and ide logy under wraps and congre gated in the co2y capital of Fin land to match skill, speed, and muscle in a radiant spirit of eyeballs out of Iheir sockets and ieft them dangling by the optic nerve, "What a looney planet!" he might have uttered.

And who could help but blink and blink again at the sight of two students, one from the Univer sity of Leningrad, the other from Cornell, down on both knees help ing a South Korean boy adjust the weights on his iron barbell? The Olympic story has been told in millions of words in dozens of languages by every newspaper on seven continents, but there's still enough untapped drama and intrigue to keep hack writers batting away at the Remingtons until Gabriel blows that high note. So I've decided to rip out a few pages from my logbook to bring you my description of a Communist rally in London, an Eisenhower rally in Oslo, Olympic Helsinki, a grand Tar Heel re union on the banks of the Baltic, an interview with the Bulgarian gymnastic squad, a two hour train ride through Soviet Russia, and a two week ocean voyage with re fugees from Communist terror. (To Be Continued) There were 398 school bus ac cidents in North Carolina last year which injured 116 children. Last year there were 176 child ren under 15 years of age in jured in bicycle accidents on North Carolina streets and highways. Hey (f LATEST I : jk '' "-i sift y( dSy - The Washington Merry -Go -Round ABOARD THE EISENHOWER CAMPAIGN TRAIN Ike Eisen hower had settled down to whistle-stopping with the verve and gusto of Harry Truman when the $16,000 Nixon bombshell hit him. After a hesitant and faltering start during the first part of his trip, the general had really learned how to harangue the crowds and seemed to like the hustings. Then suddenly came the word that his side-kick, the candi date for vice-president and the man who had been held up to the public as the model young man of America, had received $16,000 a year for expenses from a "Millionaires' Club" in Cali fornia while serving in the Senate. For a time it took most of the campaign wind out of Ike's sails. He looked pretty grim the next morning when he spoke at little midwest towns along the way. Ike went through the usual mo tions but ' you .could see his heart wasn't much in it any more. Back in the rest of the train, Eisenhower's advisers discussed the pros and cons of Nixon's "expense" gift. According to normal tax prac tice, income used for living ex penses is taxable. It cannot be tax-exempt as Senator Nixon treated it, and, therefore, he opened himself up to a charge of income-tax evasion if the Justice Department wanted tc deal with Nixon the same way the Republicans have demanded that it deal with others. Like wise those who . gave the ex pense gifts to Nixon would be vulnerable in case they de ducted the money from their own income taxes. . Finally, it is against the law for any member of Congress to accept a fee or gift in connec tion with any claim, legislation or case against . the U. S. Government. It is quite possible that some members of Cali fornia's so-called Millionaires club could have had government contracts, or could have filed for AH KIN SEE TH YUMDOW ON TH' FLOOR, WHAPt AN HER CEnnUUMAn 4 FRIEND IS. ALSO. AH THET NO CHEAP SMEAKS UP AN BOTHER'S HER. That's My Fountain mm: jo ) -1.. by Drew Pearson a radio or television station, or could have had other matters pending against the government on which Nixon used his in fluence. ' In this case he would be open to criminal prosecution and a jail sentence of two years. Sen. Barton of Kansas once went to jail in such a case, while the criminal division of the Justice Department recommended the prosecution of Congressman Gene Cox, of Georgia, a Demo crat, for taking a gift of stock in connection with a call he made to the Federal Trade Commission to secure a radio license in A1-. bany, Ga. Meanwhile, newsmen, most of them representing pro-Eisenhower papers, asked press sec retary Jim Hagerty for a state ment. "No comment at this time," replied Hagerty usually one of the most obliging men in the world. "But this is something the American people have a right to know about," pressed Vance Johnson of the San Francisco Chronicle, a paper supporting Eisenhower and Nixon. Ed Folliard of the Washington Post, also an Eisenhower paper, backed him up, as did others. "I'm not going to get a state ment for all you Democratic papers," gibbed Hagerty, half joking. "But I happen to represent a paper which strongly supports your candidate at least mo mentarily," shot back Johnson. Hagerty couldn't help himself. He knew that the general was in the rear of the train at that moment with Senators Calson of Kansas and Seaton of Nebraska, two of his closest advisers, try ing to decide what to do. Next morning Hagerty came forth with the General's state ment which many construed as strong support of Nixon though Ike also said he would talk to his Vice Presidential running mate. A moment later, the train U'L THIRD DAIS MAE RAT Pen stopped for a usual whistle-stop appearance. Ike was grim as he stepped out on the rear plat form. But he went through with his corruption routine. "We have to get rid of people who regard public office as an opportunity to get rich and aggrandize themselves," he said. "I believe the cure has to come from top to bottom. I sincerely believe I can do the job with the men I gather around me in Washington." General Eisenhower looked stern indeed as the train pulled on to the next whistle-stop on the Midwest Prairies. Strangely absent from the Eisenhower train are some of his original boosters. Sen. Jim Duff of Pennsylvania, who first started the draft-Ike movement and made speech after speech last winter when the general was still in Paris, is not only ab sent but unmentioned. Duff is not a Taft admirer. Also missing is Paul Hoffman, former head of the Citizens for Eisenhower Committee and one of the most effective organizers in helping Ike win the nomina tion. Hoffman also is not an ad mirer of Taft's. Reports persist that he has broken with Ike, not personally but politically. Also missing is Herbert Brow nell, the Dewey campaign manager who, along with Dewey, did so much to beat the Taft forces at Chicago. During the convention, Ike never made a move without consulting Brownell. His most frequent re mark then ' was: "What do we do next, Herb?" In New York, Brownell some times drops around to Ike's headquarters at the Hotel Com modore. But the calls are not frequent and Herb always comes up by a back elevator. The political backers of any candidate are bound to change, as his views change, but the complete turnover of the men around Eisenhower has been a little quicker than usual. Campus Favorite LI Abner Starts Tomorrow On Campus (The editors have invited Bill Roth, director of Graham Me morial Building, to introduce the new students at Carolina to the program of activities and available facilities of our stu dent union center. Roth is serv ing his second year as Graham Memorial director. ED.) There is little that remains to be said to the many new students in the way of welcome. Counsel ors, advisers, administrative of ficials, and old students have made many welcoming speech es, they have shaken many hands, and, by this time, the "newcomers" feel somewhat like "oldtimers." In short, the new academic year is underway, and, once again, the University has rolled out the carpet to a new crop of soon-to-be alumni. But now that you are here, well-settled, and ready to em bark upon a career, we would like to re-state a welcome to the use of facilities in Graham Me morial. The building, and everything that is in it, is for the use of the student body, old students and new students alike. The class of '56 has already taken advantage of the reading, TV, radio and lounging facilities of the spaci ous GM Lounge. They have had tea and cookies with us on the front porch, and now, we hope that they will get acquainted with the remainder of the build ing. If you "don't know from noth ing," if you want to reserve a room in GM for a meeting, if you want to check out some re cords for a little listening plea sure, or if you just want to shoot the breeze, then you should come by the Information Office of Graham Memorial. If you like the music and lights soft and low, then the Rendezvous Room in the basement is just the tic ket. All you have to do is watch The Daily Tar Heel for doings in that quarter. We can practically guarantee that you will be able to stir up a good bridge game, chess game or checker game if you come by the Lounge and make known your intentions. (Check out the necessary paraphernalia from the Office.) And, if your leisure hours be gin to hang heavy upon you, there are possibilities along the upstairs hallway which is lined with under-staffed offices. The procedure is simple: merely walk past the open office doors at a slow pace, and, occasional ly, an arm will snake out and grab you. The Daily Tar Heel like the Yackety Yack loves Com pany. The Carolina Quarterly, for the veddy, veddy practicioners of the haute culture, is to be found on the left mezzanine as you enter. The Travel Agency, if you are thinking of leaving in a hurry, can be found on the right mezzanine ditto. Tarna tion, the "humor" magazine is starting to whomp up a funny batter in what used to be the kitchen, on the main floor, to the left as you come in. But our main claim to fame is the Student Government offices. On the main floor, right, is the office of the President of the Student Body, Ham Horton. Up stairs, the ofices of the other stu dent government personnel are located. We recommend that you not arrive in the various Coun cil offiecs as a culprit, but that you choose the route of getting elected. So, once again, here's to the class of '56, and inew year, and . a bigger and better Student Un ion program. In the United States last year, nearly 87,000 child pedestrians were killed or injured by motor vehicles. Almost 30,000 of them were under 5.
