Unbelievable feats of mind-reading, hypnotism and memory wowed
a packed-in 1,800 students in Memorial Hall last night as Dr. Franz
Polgar displayed the skill that made him famous around the world.
The Hungarian mental wizard held the audience's rapt attention
for two hours despite the higs-
school antics of a few men in the
Highlight in last night's program,
as in years before, was Polgar's
experiment with his "new electron
ic, X-ray glasses." The .glasses,
which he borrowed from a member
of the audience, enabled their
wearer to see through fabrics.
Linda Smith, senior coed from
Charlotte, found it advisable to
run off stage when the first hypno
tized man tried out the new invention.

TOKYO United Nations ne
gotiators agreed yesterday to a
Communist proposal to open talks
in Panmunjom Monday on the ex
change of sick and wounded pris
oners of war. The Communists
submitted their proposal in a note
handed to Allied liaison officers
at the truce village. At the same
time, the Reds also formally sub
mitted Red Chinese Premier Chou

BONN, Germany The United
States and France accepted yester
day a Soviet invitation to join
the Russian-British talks on the
operation of three air corridors
across Soviet-occupied Germany to
Berlin. Western observers believed
the Soviet Union may be trying
to extend the conference now
under way here into a full-scale
Big Four conference on Germany.
This would be in line with recent
Soviet overtures in important areas
of East-West differences.

By dictating a series of numbers,
he caused the total of each set of

The hypnotist interrupted his
demonstrations with brief histori

Observers of the old Chapel
Hill tradition of beach-ending
(heading for the sunny coast on -weekends)
may take proper note
of a recent warning about skin
cancer among sun-tanners.
If you are fair-skinned and
burn and blister easily, you
should beware of repeated and
excessive exposures to the sun,
according to Dr. Herbert Z.
Lund, pathologist at Moses H.
Cone Memorial Hospital in
Greensboro. Most people "actual
ly beat up their skin" by deliber
ate exposure, he says.
In the brunette person, this is
not so serious. But in the fair
skinned, repeated sun exposure
causes premature wrinkles, per
manent freckles and blotches.
If care is not taken, Dr. Lund
advises, these blemishes may
announce the arrival of skin
Although all types are suscep
tible to skin damage, the path
ologist particularly stresses the
importance . of the extremely
light-skinned taking care of their
complexions. "People who don't
have skin adapted to the sun
have no business deliberately ex
posing themselves to sunlight,"
However, one sunburn does not
mean doom. Cancer is not caus
ed by one time but by several
years of continued exposure, Dr.
For the "foolhardy," the North
Carolina coast is expected to be
fair and mild this weekend, with
about a 75 high.
Rain And Sun
It'll be sun and rain all along
the state's 312 mile coastline this
weekend, the weatherman advises.
The forecast Is for continued mild
until tomorrow afternoon when
showers are expected. The wet
weather is expected to hold until
late Sunday when the trend will
be back to fair.
A high of 75 is expected today
and tomorrow with a decline to the
upper 60's on Sunday. The showers

Anthropologist Asserts World
Without Chaos1 Is Possible
By John Gibson
The Western nations already possess an ideology which has more
to offer than Communism, but an extreme concentration upon tech
nological aspects of life has caused us to lose the ability to make this
ideology explicit to others.
Thus Communism presents the threat that it does, not because it
is a better idea, but because it is
a poorer idea, better stated.
This was one of the main themes
of an address given Wednesday
by Dr. Clyde Kluckhohn, professor
of anthropology and Director of
the Russian Research center at

"That's a real original platform you've got, Bob, tell us about it,"
Student Party Chairman Lew Southern chided last night.
It was the opening statement in a bull session originally billed
as a "challenge discussion" held in Aycock Dormitory. When the
forum began at 7:30 there were nine politicians and one spectator,
and at 8:35 when it ended, there were 26 politicians and four specta
tors. Those participating blamed the Polgar hypnosis show in Memorial
(Hall for stealing their audience, or at least part of it, and both sides
looked slyly at each other and suggested that in the future there should
be a more careful scheduling of such discussions.
Student athletic fees and a civil service system for student govern
ment were the most talked about items in the informal session.
The Student Party has proposed that a civil service commission be
set up to determine which students should get which jobs. SP Presi
dential hopeful Ken Penegar said the idea was to have four members
from each party making up the commission with them making the
decisions on each job. This system, Penegar said, "would take student
.government out of politics."
UP presidential candidate Bob Gorham allowed that "this campus
isn't like the federal government thank goodness. We've all an es
sential interest in student government and it's not a political govern
ment. I think there's a danger of making it (student government)
too political, too big time." There are plenty of jobs for everybody,
Penegar made his point again about taking the jobs out of politics
and went on to explain that his civil service wouldn't be elaborate:
no quizzes and competitive examinations. "The applicant merely fills
out an application and has an interview and the commission picks
the most qualified man."
Here, Jack Stilwell, UP vice-presidential candidate, joined the argu
ment. He asked Penegar if it wouldn't be simpler for the applicant
just to see the president (as in the past) rather than face an eight-man
commission. Wouldn't it be less red tape, etc?
Slightly irritated, Penegar replied, "Jack, I haven't been elected
yet and I haven't gone into all the details. I suggest, if you're so
interested, that you stick around until after the election; it'll be a
A plan to abolish compulsory payment of fees to the Athletic As
sociation another SP plank brought lively talk by Gordon Forester,
SP candidate for secretary-treasurer.
Forester said he had talked to Dr. O. K. Cornwell at Woollen Gym
who "naturally was hesitant about giving up $150,000 a year in fees."
Students pay $10 a quarter for the use of Woollen Gym and $3.33 a
quarter to belong to the Carolina Athletic Association; both fees are
mandatory). Dr. Cornwell refused to let him see a copy of the gym's
budget because "I don't think I have the power," Forester quoted
Cornwell as saying.
"If they can justify where the money's going then I'm for giving
it to them," the SP candidate concluded, "but if they can't I think
we ought to do something."
Jerry Cook, UP candidate for secretary-treasurer, pointed out that
putting the fees on a voluntary basis would increase the price of the
fees for those who use the privileges. Forester argued that those who
didn't use the athletic privileges shouldn't pay for them.
A student member for the Board of Trustees also was discussed.
This too, is an SP proposal. Stilwell wanted to know if this proposal
wasn't sort of empty since the state legislature decides on the Trustees
and it would be impossible to get it before them this session. "On
top of that," Stilwell continued, "the General Assembly only meets
every other year so it certainly would be too late."
Penegar answered that his idea was to have a student member on
the board merely to assure students of a continuing voice, that he
wouldn't have to be a voting member. He had talked with a Trustee,
Penegar said, and the Trustee said the board could vote members
ex-officio, that is, include such people as Penegar proposed. Penegar
explained his idea further by saying he thought each branch of tne
Consolidated University should be represented and that the repre
sentative should be the president of the student body.
