The University was a step closer
to the win, place and" show window
yesterday after a General Assembly
committee agreed it should get un

The winnings would be accredit

escheats fund. Escheat is the sys

persons legally entitled to hold it,
property reverts to the state.

but the bill would shorten the wait

All other sections of the escheats
bill proposed by Kemp S. Cate,
escheats officer, were eliminated
by the committee, Senate Judiciary

The proposals killed before the
bill was approved would have pro

the proceeds ploughed into scholar

each of the three branches propor

press photographers and newspaper
editors attending the Southern

at the University of North Carolina
"Good assignment planning, com

can pay off in a better all-round
photographic performance," he
He urged the photographer who
wishes to move ahead in his pro
fession to consider each assign
ment be it a routine garden club
shot or the biggest fire in the city's
history as a challenge to make a
better and. different picture.
This morning's program alsq
featured an address by Vincent
Jones, director of the news and ed

papers, Rochester, N. Y., who spoke
on "Reader Interest in Pictures."
Ed Wergeles, chief photographer
of Newsweek Magazine, and Allan
Gould, New York, were scheduled
to speak this afternoon.
"Readership is the payoff for
anyone who works for a newspaper
whether it be the editor, photog
rapher or reporter," said Jones.
"Every good newspaperman does
his best to keep track of how his
product is registering."
He divided the newspaper read
ing public into six groups and
urged the 200 cameramen in his au

appetites. He also encouraged plan

girls blamed poor planning and
lack of enthusiasm for a luke-warm
afternoon session of Consolidated
University Day, but tonight's social
program was more active.
Despite the fact the women's
dorms here sent invitations to
dorms at UNC and State, the visit
ing turnout, numbering about 400,
and resulting social activity, was
low, though there was plenty of
female companionship available.
An afternoon program consisting
mostly of ping pong, skating, and
bowling gave way to a more lively
program at night with Line Smith
and his orchestra providing music
for a dance in WC's plush new
Elliot Hall Student Union. Previous
to the dance, a talent show con

the council to be an important con
tributor to the cause of consolida

has not spent much time on posi

gested that it study the proposal
to have a student member of the

GREENSBORO, April 11 The
Consolidated University Student
Council decided today that it still
exists and that President Ham
Horton is still a member.
"I encourage this body to refuse
to recognize Ham Horton's resigna
tion," Bob Horne of State said.
Then the three-school scuffle be
gan. Carolina's delegation, despite un
usual make-up and much debate,
went along with the other two
'schools when the vote was finally
:made. Carolina actually had three
different groups original CUSC
members, four more appointed by
; the legislature, and President Hor
j ton's CU Day committee,
j After a two-hour meeting in
WC's brand-new Elliot Hall, a res
olution was unanimously passed
that Horton did not actually quit
and couldn't do so unless he re
signed as President.
The controversy arose last month
when Jim Adams, Carolina's top
man in CUSC, and President Hor
ton quit the group. Things really
got hot this week, though, when
Horton said the three-school group
doesn't exist because Carolina has
"I don't intend to enter into
Carolina politics," Trilby Boerner,
WC student body president, said,
"but I just want the executive
committee to meet."
j- Miss Boerner said she was dis
turbed over Horton's attitude to
ward the group. "My understanding
I is that the CUSC is still a council.
As for Ham, it's not our fault if he
doesn't want to come," she remark-
' ed. The rest of the group agreed.
Ken Barton, who was chosen
temporary chairman of Carolina's
delegation at a front-lawn caucus,
apologized for the situation at Car
olina. "For the last two or three
weeks," Barton declared, "we've
Tom Sully, CUSC president and
a UNC student, delivered a state

apologized for not attending. "Hor

students from all three schools,"
Sully, who stated he was in an
"unusual position," refused to rec
ognize Home's proposal about a
The fifth time the proposal was
made, Sully said, "You're going to
have to force me against my will,
and you'll have to push me."
"Well, HI push you then," Miss
Boerner answered, and she did un
til the motion was recognized.
Horne put his argument like
this: "Horton can't resign, unless
he wishes to resign first as presi
dent of the student body. It's some
thing that just goes on and on."
State's Bill Hagler called the
mixup a "political football at Car
olina." Horne said that "Horton
thought he was doing something
real cute." Later he dubbed him

the dance and other activities last
night. He did not appear for the
Woman's College spokesmen said
that Horton started his efforts to
break down the CUSC this fall.
They termed this the reason for so

criticism was not directed at Hor

tions in the CUSC.
