that the U. S. must win a military
victory in Korea to maintain the
"prestige, honor, and influence'
of this nation in world affairs.
Van Fleet favors extension of the
present draft period to 30 or 36
months because "the boys would
be better prepared and would have
a better chance of coming back

that the extra time would be spent

investigations led by Sen. McCar

it would be up to the president

But Eisenhower told his news con

express his views.
I of such an office when I feel that
this feature (the CUSC) of the pro
gram of consolidation has accom
plished little, if anything at all. On
the contrary, it has, in my opinion,
served only as a gag for the ex
pression of student opinion, especi
ally on this campus."
President Horton accepted the
resignation and said, "I dont in
tend to appoint any one to fill his
seat at the present time. I'm in
clined to agree with the things said
in his resignation."
Asked if he was against the con
solidation of the three schools

N. C. State), President Horton said
his objection was aimed at the Con

student, is president. Purpose of

Adams also stated, "This program
of consolidation is not working and
by its very nature cannot work ef
fectively when problems and opin
ions on the three campuses are en
tirely different and cannot be voic
ed in a consolidated manner."
Hesaid this" point was illustrated
"when a delagation, or delegations,
of the CUSC, though not directly
concerned, will not venture forth
to further the cause of consolida
tion by supporting the problems
of the delegation directly concern
ed with situations affecting one
group of the Consolidated Uni

He said in the resignation, which
became effective yesterday, that
"there is no personal animosity on
my part toward any member of
the CUSU, but that I have reach
ed this decision purely on the ba
sis that I cannot work to any
really profitable ends."

Razors And Ink Censor 'Fun'
From Gopher Humor Magazine
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., March 5
(Special) The University of
Minnesota's recent issue of Tech

came out yesterday, but not in
The "objetionable" humor was
sliced out with razor blades or
covered over with penetrating ink.
Altogether, four pages had sections
cut out and one page had two
infers oblterated with ink. Editor
Bob Bevensee and several staff
members decided to "voluntarily"
cut out the offending humor.
Bevensee told the local student
senate committee on student af
fairs yesterday afternoon that
"since the decision to remove cer
tain objectionable material from
the February issue would event
ually be made by someone," he and
the Technolog board decided they
The Student Party presidential
hopeful yesterday said he would
like to see students represented
with a seat on the university's 100
man Board of Trustees.
Ken Penegar said he favored this
"in order that student opinion
might be consulted before board
decisions are made."
Penegar also answered a chal
lenge of opponent Bob Gorham
(UP) "to debate the isues of the
campaign." Penegar's complete
"Well, as I said two weeks ago
in a statement to The Daily Tar
Heel, I want to discuss every prob
lem common to all of us as students
with the students themselves and ;
my opponents. Rather than a form-
al debate in which the by-standing
student has no part, I am re-chal- ;
lenging my opponents to a discus
sion of current problems in every
University-owned living unit on j
campus and to any other house j
Where we are invited. !
"In such discussions I think the '
candidates should put forth their ',
ideas on how best to meet current
problems, so that the students
might have some basis for compar
ison of the candidates, then if a
student's point of view is not rep
resented by either candidate, he
icould advance his own ideas.
"While we should listen to such
suggestions, a candidate in-my opin
ion should start out with some
ideas of his own tempered with ma
jority will after all, that is why
we have our representative democ
racy. "Two weeks ago I made three
specific proposals on matters of
importance to all of us (these dealt
with a civil service system for ap
pointments, a bond issue for a new
student activities center and a pro
posal for a removal from politics
of Student Council nominations
a proposal supported by my party
in the Legislature).
"I think it is interesting to note
that we have yet to hear from the
opposition on these matters.
"Today I should like to add a
fourth proposal that student gov
ernment attempt to secure a seat
on the University Board of Trus
tees for students in order that stu
dent opinion might be consulted
before board decisions are made.
Again I am suggesting that a posi
tive type campaign based on prob
lems of legitimate concern to stu
dents and our self-government
would be best for the campus. Per
haps I am mistaken, but I believe
the students want and certainly de
serve a mature campaign.
"In the realm of the student en
tertainment series, I don't believe
that the student "is getting his
money's worth there. Less than
half of our student body is able
to attend the presentations at a
time. The students would have the
final say of course, but one solu
tion would be a partial subscrip
tion system something like the
Community Concert series. I won
der if Mr. Gorham would commit
himself on this issue.
"In a mature campaign there is
no room for self-pitying sympathy

.magazines was done Saturday and
'Monday afternoons by the Tech

this spring will be reviewed before
i publication by the editor and a
Technolog board committee.
Dean of Students E. G. William
soni said, "I'm very glad students
have taken action although I'm
sure the action was" not wholly
satisfactorily to all the students."
Williamson also added, "The edi
tor's effort to correct the situation
' is generably commendable."

1 Awful .'Lot'
By Sally Schindel
This is another in a series of
periodic articles on the Medical
Center and its personnel.)
I walk at least three miles
But Mrs. Barbara Walser, hostess "
of the North Carolina Memorial
Hospital, has a job which includes
many other duties besides an "aw
ful lot of walking."
According to this pert, blue-eyed
graduate of Carolina, the primary
work of the hostess is to acquaint
the people of the state with the
facilities of the hospital so they
will know how the taxpayer's mon
ey is spent and also to help the av
earge person overcome his fears
and misgivings about hospitals in
These duties include such things
as acting as guide to various clubs
and interested groups which come
to see the hospital. Doctors from
throughout the state come to ac
quaint themselves with the facili
ities so they can send their local
patients here for special treatment
if necessary. These groups may
vary in number from two to two
hundred persons in one day.
An even more fascinating aspect
of the hospital tours, reports the
hostess, is the foreign public health
officials and doctors who "want to
know everything about the hospital
inside and out." These professional
men come from all over the world.
In connection with the tours,
the hostess is in charge of training
volunteer guides and of charting
the routes for large tours so each
of five groups could leave a given
spot 10 minutes apart and not
bump into each other a pretty dif
ficult undertaking unless well ac
quainted with the plan of the hos
pital. When not busy with tours, Mrs.
Walser "flits around doing differ
ent jobs kind of like a jack of
all trades." This might entail help
ing in the administrative office
With secretarial work, organizing
schedules for reserving conference
space in the hospital, keeping track
of all movie equipment, ' black
boards, and other visual aid equip
ment or any other odd job that may
arise as a result of her being num
ber one on the "stand by" list for
anything special that may come up.
Mrs. Walser began work on her
public relations type job on July 1
although the hospital was then not
quite completed. In order to learn
about the setup of the building
and the placement of the various
departments she had to "poke
around" with a flashlight in every
cluttered nook and cranny. At that
time names weren't even on doors
and other identifying factors were
Just not there.
