WASHINGTON John W. Da

argued before the Supreme
Court yesterday that framers of
the 14th Amendment never in
tended it as a bar to separate
schools for white and Negro stu
dents. Davis told the court it was
inconceivable that the Congress
which submitted the amendment
to the states for ratification in
tended to make segregated
schools unlawful. The amend
ment says that no state shall de
ny any citizen the equal protec
tion of the laws. ,

Exhibit On
Atom Opens
On Campus
Atomic Energy, an exhibition
prepared by the editors of Life
Magazine, will be on view at
Graham Memorial beginning to
day and continuing through Dec.
15.
Scotty Hester, chairman of the
SUAB display committee, said the
display was prepared in consul
tation with the United States At
omic Energy Commission which
has urged nation-wide education
on the subject.
The thesis of the exhibition is
that science is truly international;
and that atomic energy is not ex
clusively scientific matter but will
inevitably involve social and po
litical questions. More concerned
with the practical use of atomic
energy to date than with nuclear
physics, the numerous photo
graphs emphasize the importance
of the layman's understanding the
social and political aspects of this
great new source of energy.
Atomic Energy opens with the
seven scientists whose peacetime
research led to wartime develop
ments. Then f ollow panels of Hir
oshima, Nagasaki, Bikini, experi
ments with animals, radiation
sickness and mutation.
The second section is devoted
to postwar use: the development
of atomic power and continuing
research. Here are seen pictures
of a plutonium laboratory, the
new California cyclotron, work
in the production of radioactive
isotopes at Oak Ridge, and the
new uses of radioactive isotopes

the problem of atomic energy
control. This involves the world
sources of uranium, the mining
of uranium, Oak Ridge separation
plant, and the possible diversion
of atomic energy to use as a
weapon of war. The exhibition
doses with panels describing the
Problem in education, in state
craft and as it is manifested in
the ways of the human spirit.

Boost In Meal Prices
Causes Student Strike
Special To The Daily Tar Heel
PARIS, Dec. 10 University
of Paris students, living on the
much-fabled shoestring, went on
a hunger strike recently when
the Ministry of Finance boosted
the price of meals at the stu
dent opining hall by one and
one-third cents.
As a result, several thousand
meals went unsold during the
strike.
The University has six cafe
terias where meals are served
at about 17 cents a student.
Many students are said to get
by on one of these repasts ev
ery 24 hours. This practice,
however, is not encouraged by

For Not Working
In Six-Day Fracas
By Louis Kraar
"I'm sick and tired of the whole damn mess."
That's what Attorney-General Phin Horton had to say
yesterday as he blasted the student body for not supporting
the fight against Saturday classes.
Speaking in curt tones, Horton, who is co-ordinating ac
tivities in the battle, said, "This;
is everybody's job, not just that
of three or four student govern
ment workers."
The bitter condemnation was
directed toward lack of interest
among students in the campaign
against the six-day week. Stu
dent government officials issued
a request before Thanksgiving
holidays for as many students as
possible to see trustees in their
areas. Only 15 reportedly respond
ed.. Horton, a cousin of President
Ham Horton, emphasized the need
for students to visit Trustees over
the Christmas holidays saying,
"Only individual personal con
tact will help."
The campaign has centered
around student visits to Trustees
early in the battle. Executive
Committee Member John W. Um-
stead of Chapel Hill told student
government leaders then he had
no doubt "we can beat this thing."
He agreed that Trustee visits were
the best plan.
Student government swung in
to action and handled arrange
ments by printing statements
against Saturday classes and keep
ing a file on Trustee reactions.
Sol Cherry, Ham and Phin Hor
ton and Ed Gross plan to make
trips over the holidays to Trustees
near their homes.
Any student who wishes to an
swer. Horton s irgent plea" is
asked to check by the student
government offices this week.
The Board of Trustees will meet
in a ebruary. However, there is
no decision to be made for an
extra class day as Saturday class
es definitely have been ordered
up for the University. Any action
the board would take would be
a new policy. This is what stu
dent leaders are trying to bring
about.
Life In Slum
Brings Forth
New Morals
In a sociological discussion fol
lowing the movie "A Tree Grows
in Brooklyn," Dr. Lee Brooks
said he was "simply fascinated
with its realism."
Novelist Betty Smith's Brooklyn
story "struck a responsive chord,"
Dr. Brooks said, as he told of
Boston and slum areas in other
large cities. He spoke to about
25 people who remained after the
movie. All of the movie was not
shown due to a faulty projector.
The picture was shown Mon
day night in Memorial Hall as
the first of a series depicting
man's struggle. This phase, to be
completed with "The Late
George Appleby" early next
quarter, is entitled "Man and His
Environment."
Dr. Brooks, who is associate
chairman of the Sociology De
partment, will lead a discussion
after each movie. The programs
are sponsored by the Hillel Foun
dation and the YMCA.
One member of the audience
asked T)r. Brooks the effect of a
slum environment over the rural
environment.
"It (slum environment) cer
tainly doesn't develop the Golden
Rule," Dr. Brooks answered.
"Rather it's do others before they
do you.
"At the risk of a bold asser
tion . . . I'd say the city has pro
duced immorality. . . . They have
built up a new code of 'If you
can get away with it, get away
with it.' "
"The city," the sociology pro
fessor said later," "is a tremen
dous artificiality." He pointed
out the excitement of Brooklyn
residents over the cutting of their
one tree, as contrasted with the
reaction in a rural communnity.

Honor Council
Suspends Six
For Cheating
Students Ousted
During Summer
And Fall Sessions
Six students were suspended
from the University during the
Summer and Fall Quarters for
violations of the Honor Code.
Chairman of the Honor Coun
cil Frank Daniels yesterday said
all of the suspensions came as a
result of cheating on quizzes or
final exams. An equal number of
students were readmitted during
the same period.
"When a student is suspended
from school it is for an indefinite
period of time," Daniels said,
"however, there is a minimum of
one full quarter necessary to be
out of school."
Generally speaking, he added,
if a boy is suspended "with a
recommendation that leniency be
shown on application for read
mittance" he is usually readmit
ted after one full quarter out of
school.
Two students were placed on
dance probation this Fall when
their cases were referred to the
Men's Council by the Dance
Committee. At the came time,
two boys were removed from
probation.
"The probationary sentence
has by precedent come to be one
which lasts usually for two full
quarters," Daniels said. "If a per
son is found guilty of a violation
of the Honor Code or Campus
Code while on probation he is
usually suspended."
While a student is on proba
tion he cannot represent the Uni
versity in any way and cannot
participate in any extra-curricular
activities.
Eleven students who came be
fore the Council during the Fall
and Summer were found not
guilty of Honor Code violations.
Charges against two of the stu
dents were dropped for insuffi
cient evidence.
Creighton Brinson acted as
chairman of the council during
the first session of Summer
School and Frank Daniels, regu
lar chairman, served during the
second session and Fall quarter.
Clerks during the summer ses
sions and Fall quarter were
George McLeod, Cecil Pless and
Ken Myers.
Late Change
In Housing?
See Office
Students who reserved rooms
for the Winter Quarter but do not
plan to occupy them are asked
to notify the Housing Office,
James Wadsworth said yesterday.
There is much clerical work
involved when the boys sign up
for a room and then do not oc
cupy them, Wadsworth said. He
asked that students come by the
office as soon as possible if they
do not plan to occupy the rooms
and have not notified the Hous
ing Office.
The housing shortage has eased
since the beginning of the Fall
Quarter when students were be
ing housed in basements in the
lower quadrangle.
At present there are no vacan
cies in the upper quadrangle,
Wadsworth said. "We do have a
few vacancies in Alexander,
Winston, Lewis, Everett, Graham,
Stacy, Aycock and Cobb," he
added.
