The Rev. Maurice Kidder,
pastor of the Church of the Holy
Family, Tuesday pointed out the
differences in modern day reli
gions then turned to something
"even more remarkable."
The "even more remarkable,"
according to Mr. Kidder, are the
similarities and connections
binding different beliefs." Mr.
Kidder spoke at the second of a
series of religious discussions
sponsored by the YMCA.
Speaking on the Old Testa
ment as a background for the
Judean Christian traditions, Mr.
Kidder stated, "No matter what
end is accomplished, Judean
Christian beliefs have deep ties
if for no other reason than that
Christianity was born and bred
Mr. Kidder related such Judena
Christian events as the journey
of the Jews through the desert
to the Promised Land, the pres
ervation of Sohom for 10 good
men and the last hour's reduc
tion of Jesus's followers to" two
After answering numerous
questions posed by the group,
Mr. Kidder closed the discussion
remarking, "God could shame
man for certainty by coming to
earth Himself showing the ex
tent to which He will go for the
salvation of man."

The Institute of Government has a chance at a half million dollar
gift if the state will come through with the same amount.
The $500,000 is being condiionally offered by the Knapp Foundation
of North Carolina which was creat--S

Knapp, publisher of such magazines
as Woman's Home Companion,
American Magazine, Collier's and
As specified by the foundation,

must at its 1953 session "appropri

request is in the University's re

President Gordon Gray hailed
the . proposed new government
building as "symbolizing the Un
iversity's tradition of training for
public service. . . It will be the
acknowledged center and symbol of

100 county courthouses and score
of state capitol buildings.)"
Knapp came from New York to
Currituck county in North Carolina
in 1916 for rest, relaxation, and re
creation. He loved to hunt and fish,
and Currituck county provided hap

In the years that follewed he
built a home on Mackay Island
and began to make himself part of
the life of the people of that sec
tion of the "state.
In Currituck he found plenty of
people with problems, particularly
in those days when they were hard
put to scratch a living out of the
earth or to fish a livelhood out of
the surrounding waters.
Official records show that Knapp
made a gift of $50,000 to the Cur
rituck schools in 1923, followed
soon by another $50,000 gift, and a
later contribution of $175,000 for a
new building at Poplar Branch. .

come the first county in the state
to adopt a free textbook plan, to
serve free lunches, to employ a
school nurse and to use methods
of visual education.
Knapp also made substantial
gifts regularly to the County Board
of Public Welfare and to a North
Carolina hospital in that section.

of the work the institute of Gov

to Coates and established a firm

Party Line: Reporter
Carolina's Legislature meets today.
Because decisions made by this group will affect every student
on campus, students are more or less interested. Some will claim
to be totally disinterested, but they all will care where their money
The Student Party has gained a majority this time. It's the first
time in some 14 years, they claim. Naturally, they will be expected
to please. No party can please everyone, but they should at least
strive to please the majority of the students.
The definition of a politician that says he must be a fellow who
can straddle the fence and yet keep both ears to the ground seems
These 50 representatives of the student should make up a sort of
majority, too. Instead of an SP or UP majority though, they should
strive for a "representative" majority. The individual legislator should
reflect the views of those he represents. Party interests should come
second or not at all. It's idealistic, but a good idea.
PREVIEW: Student government is in for some structural revisions
this quarter. Student Party members are busy now evaluating each
branch and considering possible revisions. This reporter hopes re
districting is not on the slate of revisions as University Party key
men seem to think it is.
OVERTIME: While 5,000 Tar Heels drummed up Yule joy, Ham
Horton, Sol Cherry and Phinn Horton swung around to see Trustees
on the still breathing monster issue of Saturday classes. The ones
they saw were receptive enough.' And it's only these individual meet
ings that will keep them out. Have you seen your Trustee?

Alhough Horton's suggestions
carry no real power, his advice as
chief administrator will doubtless

gram will suit both parties for the
most part, since the University
Party no longer holds a majority.
President Horton hinted earlier
this week that he may launch
forth with a strong censure of Car
olina's affiliation with the National
college group that, among other
things, acts as a clearing house for
ideas on student governments and
expresses an official voice for stu
dents in other groups;
Rumors that some politicians fa
vor abolishment of SEC support
from students funds have been
talked about campus during the
past week. Commenting earlier on
these rumors, Horton made it clear
that he definitely favors the pre
sent system of support of SEC.
