Phi Takes Policy Stand
To Back Up Statement
By Babbie Dilorio
The Phi has decided to say what it means and mean what it says.
"We speak In truth," said Don Angel as he opened discussion on
the point brought up in connection
"with the following statement by
Syd Shuford quoted in the Daily
Tar Heel Wednesday.
"The decision rendered tonight
could quite conceivably be made
on the quality of the debate; and
as a matter of fact, many of the
decisions are," said Shuford.
It was definitely decided that
members would vote on the merits
of the bill presented, not just the
quality of debate.
"Freedom of speech is more
valuable today," said Dayton
Debators should be willing and
able to stand behind their state
ments, the Phi agreed.
Shuford, in explaining the rea
son for his statement to the Daily
Tar Heel, pointed out that when
the Assembly debates topics, the
opinions expressed are closely
scrutinized by everyone on campus
and it might be wise to include a

He defined segregation as "a so

"Discrimination," said Shuford,
"is the evil we don't want." It is
political and is a denying factor."
In summing up his speech, Shu

they want more they must indoc

Franz Roberts promptly retorted
by saying that "segregation is legal
by law, but illegal morally."
Roberts said that we condemn
the colored people for their lack
of intelligence, manner of speech,
inability to integrate themselves
into our society, but we won't
teach them, we won't allow them
to enter our schools and partake
of the advantages offered in our
outstanding institutions of learn
ing. "The whole idea of segregation
is the biggest hypocrisy I have
ever heard of," said Roberts.

Jgx Bill Gets
In a session marked by repeated
points of order and appeals to the
chair, the Dialectic Senate defeat
ed Tuesday night a bill providing
for a national manufacturers tax
and the re-establishment of the
Office of Price Stabilization. De
feat was by a 13 to 11 vote.
The debate saw proponents
sticking to the theme that the pro
posed tax was the only way to
obtain needed revenue short of ad
ditional personal income tax.
"Let's take the money from where
it is, in the pockets of the large
corporations, and not from where
it isn't, the consumer," said Joel
Opponents counterattacked with
the argument that the bill would
destroy free enterprise. "Can man
ufacturers stand the tax and what
would it do to national econ
omy?" asked Senator Bob Farrell.
Most vehement opposition to the
measure was expressed by Gene
Shaw who attacked it as a measure
designed to "soak the rich." "We
don't need additional taxes, we
need to balance the budget and
cut the taxes we have," he told

own the administration. It isn't
our right to suggest that their
members (the manufacturers) be
taxed," he argued.
One of those calling for a reduc
