The question then, is one of in

If the redistricting is put into
effect immediately, Cobb Dormi
tory will be considered in one of
the dormitory districts. If not, it
will ba included in a town dis

crux of the problem.
Cobb, largest of the dormitories,
holds 443 students and would
yield much weight politically un
der the new law.
Members of the Student Party,
whose main strenght lies in dor

A Carolina graduate, now a
reporter who turned the pages
of a classic book and found a
murder confession, will have his
story dramatized on "The Big
Story" program Wednesday night.
Sam Hood, 1933 graduate,
helped solve the murder of a
small town business man on the
steps of Carnegie Music Hall. His
curiosity was aroused by the fact
that the killing occurred in Pitts
burgh's cultural center. He sought
an intellectual angle and found
an explanation in a disciple of
a "superman" philosophy.
His write-up of the case won
the $500 Pall Mall reward and a
Dlaaue for service in the field
of journalism. It will be dra
matized Wednesday at 9:30 p.m
over WPTF, NBC in Raleigh.

A Few Weeks
The new highway, between
Durham and Chapel Hill is
cracking, just weeks after its
completion, and the blame is
being tossed around like the
proverbial hot potato.
Numerous cracks in th scen
ic thoroughfare are the result
of the State Highway Commis
sion's failure to permit the dig
ging of adequate drainage ditch
es, according to the Nello L.
Teer Construction Company.
But according to the High
way Commission the cracks are
the result of a decision by the
Teer Company and Chapel Hill
and Durham to surface the road
with a smoother but less per
manent material than that orig
inally agreed upon.
Nello Li. Teer Sr. said yester
day, "There has been no sug
gestion by the (commission)
engineers or anyone from the
commission that we wouldn't be
paid for the repair work."
However, the commission
pointed out that the highway
has not been accepted by the

developing social science research
in connection with our expanding
programs in the health and medi

than 20 possible communities are
now being considered.

decisions are reached, plans made,
