Es- Duke Denies Having Any Red Faculty A charge that some teachers at Duke are "making contact with the Communist Party" yesterday was called "without foundation" by Dr. Charles E. Jordan, vice president in charge of public relations at Duke. J-.0U1S farKer ui Elizabthtown told a Goldsboro audience Tues day 'that he had received in formation twice about Duke fac ulty members. Parker, the im mediate past State Commandei of the American Legion, did no; name the teachers or give hL source, but said he had confi dence in the source of informa tion. Dr. Jordan said that "Mr. Par ker's statement is without foun dation. He explained that with 500 or 600 persons on our faculty, "it isn't always possible to know their inner feelings, but their loyalty has never been question ed." Parker Tuesday night said "I know for a fact that the FBI is investigating Duke faculty mem bers." William Murphy, agent in charge of the North Carolina FBI, said, "No comment." The Durham Sun said in an editorial yesterday that " any im plication that Duke University is encouraging, protecting or nur turing communism is ridiculous."

University Party officials said their platform was not ready for release. It is expected to be bas- cally the same as last spring's UP platform. UP has a small majority in Leg islature at present. The 38 con tested seats in Legislature leave a wide margin for either party to gain power. An Editorial We Ask Why Last summer, a group of politicians decided once more that it was time for a change. On Tuesday, November 4, they asked the American public what they thought, and the population of the United States voted in favor of the change. The system was altered as a result of majority approval. Last Monday, a group of Trustees decided once again that it was time for a change. In years past, they have asked University students and faculty what they thought, and have received negative response, an answer that concluded, "the advantages of the five-day -class week out-weigh the disadvantages." Because a majority of those' involved have repeatedly protested plans for a six-day class week program, we hope this mass opinion will be upheld. Whatever happens, we ask the student body to con duct an intelligent campaign against Saturday's heroes, confining your activities to the most direct methods of protest. A successful campaign can be lost in violent re bellion. Petitions, letters to parents, and talks with the Trustees will be much more effective than war dance techniques. We have one question to ask the Trustees: Why? Why is it necessary for South Building Bell to ring out the old system every Saturday morning? Our academic budget has managed very well on five days a week. Why tax us with an extra day? If the weekend exodus is their reason, we wish to re mind them of the survey taken last spring quarter which showed the exodus problem to be a myth. Everybody needs a day to recapitulate, a catch-all day to spend at leisure. Students and faculty need a time to reorganize for the coming week, student instructors need Saturdays to work on how to be better teachers in the future. The reasons for free Saturdays are obvious. The argument for Saturday classes is nebulous. Why, then, should we change a system that already works? Why? l4 .TW" 5" - t ' 1 WC Dance The IFC is sponsoring a trip to a Woman's College dance Satur day night.

Meager Crowd Hears Norton Outline Plans President Says University Isn't To Be Baby Sitter By Rolfe Neill If the Trustees want to keep students here on the week end, "it's not the part of the University to play baby sitter to what is essentially a family problem." This was the problem as President Ham Horton saw it and presented it to a student rally yesterday afternoon at Memorial Hall. However, if students are as "ackadaisical about Saturday ?lass attendance as they were about trying to prevent the ex tra class day, there'll be no need for professors to call roll. Only an estimated 350 attended the meeting yesterday. Horton deplored the fact that the Executive Committee in its decision ignored the "advice of Administration officers who cer tainly should know what's best for their school." However, he continued, "it's an honor for stu dents to have such men (Gray and House) as allies." Consolidated President Gordon Gray and UNC Chancellor R. B. House both iold the Trustee com mittee that sentiment here among students, faculty and administra tion was against Saturday classes. Horton held out hope that "if we convince them (Trustees) this thing is not for the best interests of the University, they won't push it any further." He went on to point out that faculty members utilize the long weekend for re search; students make use of it for study, while other students need Saturday to work and sup plement meager finances. The student body president drew a laugh when he quoted a woman instructor here as saying "industry and coal miners are driving toward a five-day week, must we regress?" Horton said he saw no need to take five days work and spread it over six which is apparently what the Trustees plan to do, he interpreted. He cited the Trus tee Visiting Committee report in 1949 which was against Saturday classes and called attention to the fact that "some of these same men axe now for Saturday clas ses." Horton concluded that "we can win ... if we stick together." "Sobriety, logic and restraint" would be necessary to a victory, he said earlier. Walt Dear, chairman of the Publications Board and editorial candidate for The Daily Tar Heel, also spoke to the assembly al though he didn't "pretend to be a speaker." He had the small crowd clapping with his suggestion: "Instead of Saturday classes, Mr. and Mrs. Trustee, how about a huge student union which will give up something to do over the weekend? How about bowl ing alleys, skating rinks, Univer-sity-owried pool tables and dance rooms . . ." Wallace Hanchey, Carolina Beach freshman, seemed to have the best Saturday-class-protest idea offered fiom yesterday's aud ience. He suggested having the high school seniors due to enroll here next fall as freshmen write to the Trustees discouraging lengthening of the school week. Small Fire Put Out At Sigma Chi House The Sigma Chi House was all confusion late yesterday after noon when painters, scorching paint on the columns in front of the house, accidentally set fire to the insides of one of the col umns. Hayward Washburn, a Sigma Chi, discovered the blaze and put in a call for the Chapel Hill fire Department.

Get Aboard For Miami By Nov. 19 Wednesday, Nov. 19, is the last day for Miami-bound Tar Heels to buy round-trip train tickets at the 'special rate. Over 30 students have bought tickets already and the Carolina delegation will set up headquar ters in its own car, University Club President John Seely said yesterday. If 500 students buy tickets on the train by next Wednesday, the Tar Heels wilil head for Florida in a Carolina Special. University Club officials said yesterday that a special train will be made up for UNC stu dents only if the necessary 500 sign up. Tickets cost $39.62 at the spe cial rate and bus service will be provided from Graham Memor ial to the station in Raleigh. The Silver Star will leave Ral eigh at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 26 and will arrive in Miami at 11 a. m. Thursday. Home-bound Tar Heels can leave either at 12:05 p. m. Saturday or Sunday arriving in Raleigh at 3:43 a. m. the next day. Bus service will be provided from Raleigh back to Graham Memorial.
