Stevens Will Head UP;
Bosses Almost Foxed
By Dick Creed
After an intra-party slugfest, the University Party last night elected
as party chairman sophomore Jack Stevens, whom many in both the
Student Party and UP have considered a novice because of his limited
experience in campus politics. -
The UP, still staggering from the blow dealt it by the sweeping SP
win in Legislature last weeTc.
In UNC Life:
Six dormitories have television
sets in their social rooms and one,
Stacy, has a set "on the way,"
according to a dorm spokesman.
Of the six sets which are in
stalled, three are equipped with
ultra-high frequency, which en
ables them to receive telecasts
from the several nearby uhf sta
tions. One, in Winston, has uhf
and vhf (very high frequency).
The dorms which nave sets 'are
Aycock, Cobb (uhf), Joyner (uhf),
Mangum, Manley and Winston
(vhf). Mangum residents plan to
convert their set to uhf in the
Connor Dorm has "talked it
over," but the price is a little
high, according to Dick Stox of
Connor. A spokesman for Lewis
said that the dorm has "hopes
but no plans." Old East and Steele
are "discussing" the matter.
Residents of the dorms which
have TV contributed from $1.25
to $2.00 apiece for the sets. The
women's dormitories have no sets,
and, as Ann Tew of Smith said,

Is Out Of Date
The old IQ or intelligence quo
tient tests are going out and a new
series of objective tests to reveal
a person's hidden mental and per
sonality endowments are becoming
This was pointed out by Dr. L.
L. Thurstone, eminent psychologist
and Erector of the University Psy
chometric Laboratory, at the Men's
Faculty Club recently.
"During the last two decades
there has been much research on
the isolation of the components of
intelligence. Instead of using the
overall IQ score it is now prefer
able to describe the mental endow
ment of each person in terms of
a profile of his mental abilities,"
Dr. Thurstone, who has been
here since 1952, has achieved an
international reputation as a high
ly creative contributor to the lit
erature of psychology, especially
in the application of quantitative
methods of psychological prob
lems. "It is not known how many pri
mary abilities will be required as
factors in accounting for human in
telligence," he continued. "About
15 of these mental traits have been
isolated for use so far and some ad
ditional ones have been indicated."
It is the eventual hope of psy
chologists, Dr. Thurstone said,
"that a person's mental endow
ment, including both his intellec
tual and temperamental traits can
be described by these objective
traits. Even at present we can ap
praise the intellective endowment
fairly well by tests for the primary
Miss MacKinnon Elected
To Public Health Council
Miss Frances MacKinnon, asso
ciate professor in the Department
of Nutrition of the University's
School of Public Health, has been
elected to the Governing Council
of the American Public Health
Association, Reginald M. Atwater,
New York, Executive Secretary of
the Association, has announced.
Miss MacKinnon's term will ex
pire at the close of the 1956 annual
meeting of the Association.
She is the second member of the
faculty belonging to the Govern
ing Council. Dr. Edward G. Mc
Gavran, Dean, is a current mem
ber whose term expires in 1954.
I couldn't gather itself sufficiently
to lend its unified support to Stev
vens, the choice of UP big-wigs
including President Bob Gorham,
Attorney-General Jack Stillwell,
ex-UP Floorleader Phin Horton,
junior class President Bob Grimes,
and chairman of Gorham's orienta
tion study committee, Ed McCurry.
Stevens won out over Jackie
Brooks and Reuben Leonard, beat
ing Leonard by only one vote. The
main objection to Jackie Brooks
was the fact that she is a girl, and
some considered her "too busy" to
handle the post of chairman. Many
of those who supported Leonard
said that as a senior he was quali
fied to handle the job.
Stillwell told the party that he
and the UP dignitaries met last
week and decided that Stevens
should be elected to the chairman
ship. Stillwell apparently got wind
that opposition was arising to the
candidate favored by the party bos
ses, and at the beginning of the
meeting moved that election of
officers be postponed until after
the Christmas holidays. No nom
inations had been made at that
Miss Brooks objected strongly
to such a move and the motion was
defeated. Miss Brooks had antici
pated before the meeting that Still
well would nominate Stevens and
that Chairman Wolfsheimer would
speak in his favor. Instead, Bill
Saunders, who sat beside Stillwell,
nominated Stevens, and Wolf
sheimer did speak in his favor.
Stillwell declined to say whether
he had instructed Saunders to
place Stevens' name in nomination.
- 'After several allusions had been
made to Stevens' "timidity" and
lack of a "dynamic personality,"
Stillwell declared that the party
did not need a dynamic personal
ity, but one who would "work and
cooperate with other party offi
cials." He said that the party should
not elect a man who would "work
for himself." He said that Stevens

The Negro man who says his
name is Willie Duke, Jr., was "just
arrested for vagrancy," according
to Chapel Hill Police Chief W. T.
The Associated Press reported
yesterday that police said Duke
looks like Raymond Carney, the
alleged murderer of a young
couple over a week ago in Pamlico,
Chief Sloan said Duke's finger
prints didn't match up with those
of the hunted man. Officers added
that Duke has a "little grey in his
hair," while Carney has none, and
that Duke has a low foreheaS,
while Carney's is high. Carney is
over 10 years older than Duke.
The prisoner gave Williamsburg

address. He told officers he is 26
years old, and had been working
in New York prior to his three
months at the American Tobacc6
