(N BRIEF
S E O U L UN infantrymen,
lashing out on the central front,
captured one Communist-held
mountain yesterday and waged a
bloody battle for a second Red
fortress. The attack was the big
gest since October of 1951, when
UN units fought the Reds in a
series of line of demarcation
battles. Gallant infantrymen
slipped on the smooth shale and
sand sides of the 70 degree
Triangle Hill. "It's a very diffi
cult hill to climb, let alone as
sault," said a division officer. The
size of the enemy force holding
Triangle was not known. Officers
estimated it to be about a com
pany. Red forces were being kept
at full strength by a series of
trenches connecting Triangle with
nearby Mount Papa, where poss
ibly a regiment 3,000 men were
waiting in the safety of bunkers
and tunnels.
H O U S T O N Dwight Eisen
hower celebrated his 62nd birth
day yesterday by calling on the
South to rise up in political re
bellion against the Democratic
Party. At this first stop upon en
tering Texas, he addressed a
crowd estimated at 65,000, call
ing the Democrats "weak-kneed
and soft-headed" . . . "power
mongers" . . . "discredited", and
telling the crowd that he had been
told not to campaign in the South
because "the administration has
those states in the bag." He made
his Houston speech a follow-up to
his hard-hitting Monday night
New Orleans speech by again
stating his support of state-ownership
for the tide-lands oil
warning against the encroach
ment of the federal government
on the rights of the states.
CASPER, Wyo. Gov. Adlai
Stevenson expressed "sorrow and
dismay" at the Republican pre
ference for "slogans, emotion, and
confetti" rather than for facing
up their record on campaign
issues. In the first speech of a
6,000 mile trip to the West and
Texas, he accused the GOP of a
long record of "Republican isola
tionism in foreign affairs and in
action in domestic affairs." He
went on to say that the Repub
licans had "opposed every mea
sure to build up American
strength and America's alliances
against the Communist conspi
racy" and that "they seem to
have induced or forced the
general to alter his own posi
tive principles and to adopt
equivocal and Hesitant views that
savor more of isolation and re
treat than security and confi
dence." WASHINGTON I r k e d Air
Force officers cited praise by
Gens. Mark Clark and James A.
Van Fleet as evidence that the
Korean air effort was not a "fiz
zle." Gen Lemuel C. Shepherd Jr.,
Marine Corps commandant, had
been quoted as saying that Opera
tion Strangle "is recognized as a
fizzle." Operation Strangle is the
name of the joint air operations
to interdict the Communist sup

Campus Society Honors
Carolina
Highest
By Tom Parramore
The memory of the Carolina
professor who proved that
Mount Mitchell, which bears
his name, is the highest east of
the Mississippi, lives on through
a campus scientific society.
Elisha Mitchell was born in
Connecticut and educated at
Yale. After he came to the
UNC faculty he made many
trips throughout the state on
horseback, going to different
mountains to satiate his scien
tific zeaL It was on one of these
trips that, with a barometer
ordered from Paris, Mitchell
measured the mountain which
later was named for him. The
height is 6,684 feet.

State Highway Commission, has
authorized drainage trenches to
be constructed "where needed,"
and that his firm accepted the
decision as final.
The construction firm head said
Rogers' action in authorizing the
trenches to be put down is "ab
solutely an admission on their
part that the trenches were need
ed and that lack of proper drain
age caused the trouble."
The construction company had
put in the tranches for almost two
miles from Durham when, Teer
said, the commission halted the
work over his firm's objections.
He said lack of the trenches en
abled water to seep under the
pavement, resulting in numerous
cracks in the highway which was
opened to traffic September 19.
Teer said that his company will
be paid for repairing the cracks
"on a monthly basis as provided
for in our contract."

Party Leaders Voice
Opinions About Ruling
Various opinions of the Student Council's ruling on the re
distrpting were aired by leaders in both parties yesterday. Gen
erally, the University Party favored the council's ruling and the
Student Prty felt somewhat less in agreement.
The opinions of some of the leaders were:
President Ham Horton (UP) "We are elated to hear that the
student body will have, this Fall, their long-awaited redisricting."
Ken Barton (SP-Party Chairman) "I feel at all times that the
constitution should be upheld. I feel that we should abide by the
Student Council's decision, but I honestly believe that they have
misinterpreted its meaning. I don't personally oppose the re
districting, but I feel that a more permanent bill could be formu
lated. I disagree with present student government officers that
claim a compromise is impossible."
Jerry Cook (UP Chairman of Elections Board) "I think that
the Student Council's ruling is the only one that could have been
made. It had to be made this way to agree with the constitution."
Ken Penegar (SP-Speaker Pro-Tern) "I think that constitu
tional supremacy has been maintained, but that the spirit of the
elections law has been violated, and the integrity of legislators
questioned. I should like to see the men of Cobb Dorm given fair
representation, but at the same time I think it desirable to respect
the due process of law making and previously passed, duly en
acted legislation."
Vice-President Jim McLeod (UP) "This proves the legality of
the law as such. I hope the change can take place with a minimum
of trouble."
Joel Fleishman (Parliamentarian SP) "This ruling is, in my
opinion, not within the true essence of the general laws of student
government."

now offering veterans a means of
saving three per cent of the prem
ium on their NSLI and other gov
ernment insurance policies. All
they have to do to get this sav
ing is to pay their premiums
quarterly, semi-annually or annu
ally. This plan, says the VA, is bene
ficial to both sides. The veteran
not only saves money, but by
paying less often is less likely to
forget a payment. The VA, by
receiving fewer monthly checks,
will have less work to do and
need fewer employees. This
amounts to a substantial saving
for the taxpayer.
The VA also reminded those
veterans who are receiving regu
lar compensation or pension pay
ments that they might have the
regional office authorized to de
duct insurance premiums from
their check. This method is time
saving and worry saving on the
part of the veteran in that it in
sures the payment of premiums
on time.

ecision
On Recent Dill
Discrepancies In
Existing Law Are
Basis Of Dispute
By Louis Kraar
The question of whether the
newly-passed redistricting bill
would apply to the coming
Fall election was answered
yes yesterday.
After a four and a half hour
special meeting Monday, the
Student Council reached its de
cision. Council President Ted
Frankel said in releasing the
council's ruling that it was made
on the basis of the constitution.
Although this action , contra
dicts the existing general elec
tions laws, which contains cer
tain technical discrepencies, the
constitution is the supreme voice
in such disputes, Frankel pointed
out.
The redistricting bill, revamps
the two existing men's dormitory
districts into five smaller ones,
and has been under dispute since
its passage at the last session of
the Legislature. The technical
discrepencies within the general
election laws prompted the dis
pute. In making its decision, the
council recommended that the
discrepency in the general elec
tions law be corrected as soon as
possible and suggested the "exer
cise of more foresight in the fu
ture." Proponents of the bill, mainly
members of the University Party,
believed that the redistricting
bill should go into effect for the
Fall election. Opponents, mainly
members of the Student Party,
thought that it should not affect
the Fall election.
"In order to best protect the
best interests and preserve the
general welfare of the student
body, the Student Council makes
this ruling," said Frankel in an
official statement of the Council's
ruling.
The five new districts are:
Cobb with four legislators;
Stacy, Everett, Graham, Lewis,
and Aycock with five legislators;
Connor, Alexander, and Winston
with five legislators; Joiner, Man
gum, Grimes, and Ruffin with
six legislators; Old East, Old
West, Battle-Vance-Pettigrew,
Steele, Whitehead, and all other
on campus buildings with living
quarters owned by the Univer
sity with four legislators.
