A student-faculty Campus Stores Committee was estab
lished by the May meeting of the Board of Trustees to act
in an advisory capacity to the Assistant Controller-Business
Manager. '
In plain language, this means that students are now in
vited to voice their criticism of the Book Exchange operations
before a panel whose membership includes three student rep
resentatives. The Daily Tar Heel has at least one edifying
proposal which should merit the attention of this committee
at its first hearing. . . ,
For years we have been lining up outside the state dook
store in the basement of Steele Dormitory, paying seemingly
exhorbitant prices for textbooks, and using them for only
three months. Then, when final exams are over and the
weighty volumns have outlived their practicality, we take
them back to the Book-X to try to reclaim part of our original
investment. If we're lucky, we are offered exactly half the
price we paid provided the book is in good condition and
all penciled notations have been neatly erased. Often the
clerk decides he is overstocked with your particular textbook
,and recommends you bring it back next quarter or the quar
ter after or let it go at a sacrifice for fifty cents or twenty
five cents.
We believe the Book Exchange, as an arm of the Universi
ty, should take all steps consonant with sound business prac
tices toward lessening the cost of books to the individual
student. Our quarrel at this time does not concern itself with
the high original cost of the books nor even with the cancel
lation of the rebate system. These are matters which the student-faculty
committee is expected to delve into and emerge
with documentation either supporting or contradicting the
existing policy. We do contend that a student should be guar
anteed a reasonable return on any book regardless of the
number already collecting dust on Book-X shelves, and not
be forced to "wait for an opening" or sacrifice it at a fraction
of what he paid ninety days before.
The present policy of "We don't need that one sorry
tough luck" aggravates everybody, suggests that the Boox-X
is not oriented toward serving the best interests of the student-body,
and discriminates against those students taking
uncommon or "off-brand" courses such as country journal
ism, obscure political science courses, Russian, and Portu
guese. We fail to see how a system whereby students would auto
matically receive a pre-stipulated return on his books at the
end of the quarter could seriously hamper the long range
program of the Book-X. Most textbooks are redeemed sooner
or later and the state is in better position to assume the delay
than the student. Why should we be stuck with a six dollar
geography tome because the" Book Exchange happens to be
overstocked at the moment?
The supply and demand mechanism, however valid in the
outside world of . free enterprise, should not be allowed to
function to the direct detriment of the student body.
We trust that Thad Eure, Ed Singleton, and Al Bryant, the
three students appointed by President Ham Horton to serve
on the committee, will exert maximum effort to see that this
and other suggested improvements are accorded keenest
evaluation by the advisory committee. We expect our rep
resentatives to take the initiative in seeking to bring the poli
cies of the Book Exchange into closer harmony with the wel
fare of the student community.

Mamie Eisenhower is a blue
eyed brunette, about five feet,
four inches . in height. She
dresses simply in dark, basic
clothes and has distinctive tastes
in the selection of hats.
The famous bangs have been
hers for many years and she
has refused to change her hair
Mamie's well-known char
acteristic lies in being herself.
A warm, friendly smile is a
sort of trade mark. She was
"herself" in France, where liv
ing in a French villa assigned to
the General, she planted sweet
corn in the garden so that Ike
could enjoy corn-on-the-cob.
Her friends say, "Mamie
hasn't changed over the years.
You always know that when
you meet her again she will be
the same."
The only career she wants is
the role of homemaker, a part
she has played effectively for
many years under complex cir
cumstances. She says she has "kept house
in "everything but an igloo."
Prior to departing on her first
campaign train, Mrs. Eisenhower
set an Election Year example
for American women. She re
gistered. She can and will vote
on November 4.
"Being registered for voting
is a citizen's first duty," Mamie
said. "It's the half-way mark of
the 100 percent voter."
Mrs. Eisenhower wrote her
name on the rolls of the 49th
Election District of the 7th As
sembly District in the Central
Registration office of the New
York City Board of Elections.
She also applied for an absentee
ballot, in case she is not near
her own voting district on Elec
tion Day.

Young Republicans
Various petty campus politi
cians have recently printed their
attacks on Eisenhower in your
paper, and I have said nothing.
I will suffer in silence no longer,
however, for the "great smear"
attempt reached a new low with
the publication of one of the
most intolerant and false col
umns ever to appear in the Tar
Heel. I am referring to the Dem
ocratic propoganda on Wednes
day's editorial page under the
name of the Rt. Hon Albert
First of all Mr. House blasted
the Republican National Con
vention for refusing to nomin
ate Taft as the GOP presiden
tial candidate. Mr. House knows
quite well that the big-wags in
control of the national party ma
chinery at that time favored Mr.
Taft. He also knows that the
rank-and-file members of the
party did not want Mr. Taft.
Using the typical Democratic
interpretation of such a situa
tion, he fails to understand why
Mr. .Taft was not nominated. The
only thing he can see is that the
' headmen wanted Taft: there
fore, Taft . should have been
nominated. ;
Since that did not happen, the
nomination' was "stolen from it?
''rightful" recipient and given to
the true choice of the Republican
party, Ike.
It is easy to understand why
Mr. House holds such a philoso
phy: I will cite the Democratic
Convention as an example.
The lay member of the Demo
cratic party wanted the Senator
from Tennessee, Estes Kefauver,
to be their standard bearer. Big
In reference to Al House's ar
ticle, "On the House," in Wed
nesday's Daily Tar Heel, I would
like to add my two cents worth.
Mr. House's insinuation that the
Republican National Convention
did the wrong thing in seating
pro-Ike forces at the Chicago
convention is as far away from
: the truth as one can get. If he
had participated in precinct con
ventions where Ike had won a
clear-cut majority and had seen
those same delegates refused
seats, he too would have made
charges of a big steal. Actually,
the big steal was the big truth.
His other insinuation that the
13 million unemployed of 1931
all found jobs under the New
Deal is not true. We had major
unemployment until Pearl Har
bor, as the statistics will prove.
Furthermore, the threat of Com
' munism has not diminished just
city bosses, however, including
notorious Jake Arvey of Chicago,
had already "decided for the peo
ple" that Adlai Stevenson was to
be the nominee. It took all of con
vention week to educate the dele
gates, but the back-stage string
pulling succeeded.
So, the Democratic delegates
to Chicago merely ratified the
dictation of the party big
wheels; the Republican delegat
es to Chicago dictated the choice
of Ike.
As a result the old isolation
ist wingMs no longer in control
of the Republican party. The
victor, Ike, has not surrendered
to the vanquished, Taft. The
principle of throwing away a
hard - earned victory belongs
solely to the Democratic party.
A perfect example of this is
Truman's bungling of the peace
won on the battlefields of Eu
rope by troops under Ike's com
mand. The "Ike Surrender" theme,
however, is just one example of
the hypocrisy of the Democratic
party. You will remember that
Mr. House blasted the GOP for
failing to nominate Taft, yet in
the next paragraph Mr. House
attacked the GOP for consulting
Mr. Taft. What is this individ
ual trying to accomplish? I am
afraid I cannot answer that, but
I do know his method is the old
Democratic practice of trying to
talk out of both sides of the
mouth at the same time. He
doesn't accomplish anything but
does acquire a remarkable re
semblance to the Democratic
party symbol.

because we have less unemploy

the facts, and let people form
their own opinions, he would
have a much better article.
