Cook Gives Gorham
Verbal Swat; Prexy
Swings Right Back
By Charlie Kuralt
Student Party Chairman Gene
Cook and Student President Bob
Gorham, (University Party),
squared off yesterday in the year's
first big exchange of political
The main issue was the selec
tion of orientation conselors, which
Cook charged was "irregular and
grossly unfair." Fraternities, Cook
declared in a prepared statement,
were given an "allotment" of
orientation counselors, and Gor
ham, he said, has instituted "a re
gime that is of, by, and for the
In addition, Cook charged Gor
ham with trying to "sabotage" the
National Students Association on
the campus and with having an
"apathetic attitude toward the
many problems facing the student
'Tantastic," rejoined President
Gorham. He called Cook's state
ment, "an attempt by the SP to
split the campus for political ex
pediency." "Fraternity membership," Gor
ham insisted, "had nothing to do
with the selection of orientation
counselors. Those men were select
ed on the basis of capability
The Student Party meeting last
night unanimously backed Cook's
statement, giving loud aproval to
the sharpest criticism of the Gor
ham administration issued to date.
The opposing statements sharp
ly contradicted each onther on
Cook's statement for the SP on
the selection of counselors: "Gor
ham has taken the position that
what is good for the fraternities
is good for the campus. Ninety per
cent of the orientation counselors
chosen by his committee were fra
ternity men, and each fraternity
was given an allotment of coun
selors." Gorham's rebuttal: "We posted
in dorms notices that counselors
were being chosen. Many more
fraternity men applied for the
positions. 40 percent of the dor
mitory men who applied were
chosen. 42 percent of the frater
nity men who applied were chosen.
We have tried to be fair ... No
allotments' were made to any
Gorham said, "No one has come j
xi - f Tr1itim1
to my office, regaruieaa w
or social affiliation, has been
turned don for a job. When I
asked two SP men to serve on
committees recently, they refused."
The Student Party statement
pointed out that Gorham and his
"cohorts" were absent from .the
National Students Association Con-,
gress last August, and accused
him of neglect of the organiza

Di To Debate Reducing Tariff
At Meet Tonight In New West
Reducing the United States tariff will be debated tonight by the Di
alectic Senate in Di Hall on third floor of New West at 8 o'clock.
A spokesman for the bill to be presented by Senator David Reid of
Asheville stated that a reducec "
tariff would allow other nations to
stabilize their economies by earn
ing American dollars.
He also said that such a policy
would spur foreign nations to pay
up their debts to this country.
Opponents of hte bill believe
any lowering in tariff rates would
endanger American economy to
the extent of possibly throwing
millions out of work.
The law to be questioned is the
1930 Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act
which was slightly changed by
Secretary of State Cordell Hull's
system of reciprocal trade agree
ments that partially lowered the
many town functions.
U.N. flags will be displayed by
the American Legion on Franklin
St., and short films will be run in
Carolina and Hollywood
theaters by the League of Women
Voters on Oct. 24.
