He'll Date New 'Maiden'
Saga OfSir Charles' Near Climax
By Charles Kuralt
A ray of hope for Sir Charles
flickered for an instant yester
day, but then went out.
For a few brief, heart-stopping
moments yesterday, it ap
peared that Charles Childs had
found the maiden of the yellow
raincoat, the Woman's College
girl who stole his heart away on
a rainy Saturday.
An Alderman Dormitory girl,
Woody Troster, admitted to
hearing a boy who sat near her
at the Maryland football game
Saturday . remark that the lost
beauty was a girl named,
"He told a friend she was
named Arleen Gross," Miss
Troster told The Daily Tar Heel,
trying, as scores of people have
since the news first appeared in
print, to be helpful.
But a check of W. C records
failed to find anyone of that

The letter was signed, "Honest

And Sir Charles, the 20th cen
tury knight-errant, was back
where he began in his quest for
the damsel in yellow.
In recent Gays, the drama of
the situation has become tense.

The news dropped Sir Charles
to a new low.
Yesterday, he shook his head
doubtfully. "This thing has
grown so big!" he exclaimed.
And still no results. Sir Charles
seemed to feel that the damsel
is gone, forever.
In the meantime, he has de

If the Korean political confer

it will be. because the Communists

The Philanthropic Assembly
and the Dialectic Senate met in
a joint session last night and de
bated "A bill calling for the ad
mission of Communist China into
the United Nations."
Senator Jimmy Turner of the Di
introduced the bill and preceded
to speak on it "The recognition of
Red China as a member of the
United Nations is nothing more
than the recognition of fact," he
said. "Certainly the People's Gov
ernment of China is Communistic.
Certainly it is antagonistic to our
cause; but the very function of the
UN is to bring antagonists togeth
er to wors out their differences
in debate and not in battle."
This meeting of the Di and Phi
opened United Nations Week here.
Opposing the bill Ed Williams,
a visitor, said, "If we recognized
Communist China, we would be
compromising with oppression and
failing to combat evil." By doing
this, he seid, we would be deny
ing the principles on which t'f?
United Nations was founded. "The
prospective member of the UN
must be a peace loving state," he
Williams speculated as to
whether Communist China were
actually a state. 'j'A state, to be.
a state," he said, "must be recog
nized as such by a majority of the
International Community. Are we
to accept as a member of the UN
any nation which has failed to live
up to any principles of the UN?"
Senator Henry Lowett of the Di
took the floor defending the bilL
"I think that the way things are
going now we are going to have
another World War," he said. "The
only way to avert such a "war is
to meet around a bargaining table
and talk and talk and talk."
Next to oppose the bill was Rep
resentative Bob Pace of the Phi.
Denying a statement in the bill
he said, "The Communist Govern
ment does not represent the
needs, aims, and sovereignty of the
people. The bill in describing
Communist China stated that "the
government of a geographically
defined country is that political
entity which most represents the
needs, aims, and sovereignty of
