JERRY COOK, WHO SAYS HE BELIEVES in originality, came up with this handbill for voters this
week. "Campaigns have almost got to the point of boredom," Cook said. "I just had to think of some
thing original." The Student Party, his opposition, didn't like the handbill because it "promoted a
lack of respect for student government." As for student reaction, it seemed to be summed up by one
fellow in Old West. "Now the politicians are getting on the ball," said the voter with a smile.
Ogden Nash's Doggerel
rnpresses Crowd Here
By J. D. Wright
Reciting and commenting on the background of his more than 8,000
light poems, Ogden Nash, delighted a Memorial Hall audience Tuesday
night. Some 600 people were present.
Giving a brief review of how he became a writer of humorous
poetry, Nash said he had beenS
writing since childhood, and wrote
his first poem when his sister was
about to get married: "Beautiful
Spring at last is here,' taking my
sister atjast I fear." This went on
for some 14 verses until he discov

After a year at Harvard, Nash
said, "I developed good taste in

Having discovered what he terms
"a leak in the dike of the English
language," he sold the verse and
soon received a request for more.

"They will cover the tuition and

OP STUDENT BODY
PANMUNJOM The Communists
offered yesterday to return some
600 ailing United Nations prison
ers possibly including only 100
Americans but the Allies protest
ed and asked for a recount. In
contrast to the Reds' offer, the
Allies proposed to turn over 5,800
ailing Communist prisoners, includ
ing 5,100 North Koreans and 700
Chinese. The Communists said they
would take the U. N. request under
consideration and junior officers
for both sides met after yesterday's
main meeting to work out the me

A Legal Loophole
By Louis Kraar
The Consolidated University Stu
dent Council actually doesn't exist
anymore, President Ham Horton
said yesterday. ?-
He went on to explain his state
ment, "There can be no Carolina
CUSC committee because there is
no one to call a meeting." Horton
referred to the fact that Jim
Adams, head of Carolina's delega
tion to the three-school student
government group, quit last month.
"And there can be no CUSC,"
Horton continued, "because by the
very nature of the organization it
has to be made up of the entire
Horton quit the group also, say
ing that he thinks it is the only
way to revise the group. "If there
were any other way to revise the
CUSC, I would not have quit," Hor
ton said yesterday.
President Horton said he was
digging out the legal loopholes just
to prove a point that the problems
of the three schools are different
and must be dealt with differently.
In an effort : to iron out the
problems, Horton said he and other
CUSC officials were meeting with
William Friday, assistant to Presi
dent Gray, to work out another
plan of consolidated student gov

hand, some of the remaining CUSC
committee said they were going to
do the representing.
Horton said that no one would
represent Carolina officially at the
meeting. He said the CU day com
mittee was only representing Car
olina as far as participation in the
day's program was concerned.

to help build the gym.

that the students want to continue

"Let's see what the students

to the general will of the students
