University Painter Undoes Weekend's Doin
i ' ,
UNIVERSITY PAINTER S. W. Clark is shown yesterday re
moving the black paint smeared on the statue of Confederate Sol
dier, in front of Graham Memorial. .The job was a hard one, safd
Painter Clark, since some of the paint had worked its way into
pores in the statue's base. Another picture of the weekend's de
f struction on page four. R. B .Henley Photo.
A group of cousins from "Cow
Gollege" (N. C. State to frosh), evi- i
dently foreseeing ultimate defeat '
at the hands of the Tar Heels in j
Kenan Stadium on Saturday after
noon evidently left their mark on !
the UNC campus the night before.
Three noticeable acts of vanda
lism were reported; if there were
others, they went unnoticed.
"Silent Sam," the confederate
monument next to Graham Memor
ial, was splashed with black paint
and a beef bottle was attached to
his rifle sling. Then, to top the
evening off, the initials "N-C-S"
were burned into the grass on the
lawn of the planetarium building.
Director of Operations J. S. Ben
nett, who is in charge of grounds,
declined to comment on the inci
dent. Only Two Arrests
In spite of the fact that 22,000
people attended the Carolina-State
football game, only two students
were arrested Saturday night.
One student was arrested for
drunken driving while the other
made the grave error of parking
in front of a fire hydrant. fThe
Chapel Hill Police were happy to
note that, there was not one stu
dent picked up at the football
game for drunkeness, and they also
reported that they did not see any
student intoxicated.
Mo Action Yet
'l The Inter-Fraternity Council
met last night but did not consid
er again the question of whether
to" allow The Daily Tar Heel to cov
er its meetings.
' -The reason for the Council's fail
ure to consider the question again
last night was the sparse attend
ance at the meeting, according to
Ed McCurry, IFC vice presrident.
The IFC voted last week to keep
its meetings secret. Since then it
has been suggested that the Coun
cil might be willing to have a re
porter at its regular meetings if
it could retain the right of calling
i - a secret executive session to con
sider matters which it did not want
: reported.
McCurry indicated that the IFC
will probably 'consider the matter
i at its meeting next Monday night.
Chess Meetinq
' The Chess Club will hold its
first meeting of the year to
night at 8 o'clock in Roland Par
ker rooms 1 and 2 of Graham
Memorial. Plans for tourna
ments and other activities will
be discussed and a rapid transit
tournament will be held for all
these who would like to partici
pate. There will also be instruc
tion for beginners and interest
ed advanced players. .All are
cordially invited. . :..

SP Delays
A committee report was .begun
and then- abruptly stopped when
it was learned that a member of
The Daily Tar Heel reporting staff
was present at the meeting of the
Student Party last night. -
David Reid, vice chairman, who
presided in the absence of Chair
man Joel Fleishman, called on
Charles Wolf for a report on the
committee appointed at the SP
meeting last week to investigate
or formulate plans for introducing
a bill in the Legislature which
would prevent executive sessions
from being closed to the press.
The committee was organized af
ter iThe Daily Tar Heel was barred
from an IFC meeting. Wolf start
ed by commenting that members
of the newspaper staff had come
running to the SP last Monday
night for the party to take action.
At this point, Wolf asked if a mem
ber of The Daily Tar Heel staff
were present, and upon receiving
an affirmative answer, he stated
that he had no report to make.
After some discussion a motion
was. passed to give the committee
another week in which to formu
late its report.
Wolf also presented the pro
gram for the evening by giving his
conception of the most pressing
problems on the campus which the
SP should try to remedy.
Among these were a means of
improving or changing fraternity
rushing, integration of student gov
ernment, the introduction of a civ
il service system into student gov
ernment and investigation of cur
rent social problems on campus.
Wolf also passed out copies of
some 86 problems of varying im-
portance which he thought that the
party snould consider during tne

. . . don't raise the fees
whether to recommend to the "leg
islature a raise in tuition and dor
mitory fees.
The possibility of increased fees
came up at a meeting of the com-
! mission two weeks ago during
which Consolidated ' University
Vice President W. D. Carmichael
told commission members he would
ask them to join him in requesting
the legislature to pass an act al
lowing the University to .build dorr
mitories with loans to be repaid
from rentals.
Commission member LeRoy Mar-
tin asked State College Chancel-
lor Carey Bostian what would be
. .rr, . v. . ,
the effect on his student body if
fees were increased. Bostian ;
swered that an increase would "de
prive many youths of an oppor
tunity to obtain technical train
ing." Since then ? Bostian, Prersident
Gordon Gray and Chancellor Ed
ward K. Graham of Woman's Col
lege have come out against a raise
in student fees.
John Larkins of Raleigh is com
mission chairman. The commis
sion will meet with Umstead again
The legislature will convene Jan.
5 and consider the commission's
recommendations. It usually fol
lows the recommendations in mak
ing appropriations.
What the commission decides to
recommend will not be made pub
lic until the legislature convenes.
Gray, Chancellor Robert B.
House of Carolina, Graham and
Bostian met with the commission
earlier this month to ask appro
priations 'for the 1955-7 biennium.
Gray asked for an increase in
his general administration budget
from $79,207 this year to $129,263
for the first year of the next bi
ennium and $188,255 for the sec
ond year. . . ' '
Gray also asked for $15,000 for
the new office of business manager-treasurer
and secretary.
House requested an increase in
the maintenance budget for the
University at Chrpel Hill of $905
044 for 1955-56 and one of $867,
738 for 1956-57.
The University at Chapel Hill
requested $1,603,500 to build a new
pharmacy building and remodel
Howell Hall for occupancy by the
School of Journalism.
Other requested appropriations
for permanent improvements were
an addition to, and remodeling of,
Peabody Hall: $735,000; dormitory
for men, including dining room and
kitchen: $1,000,000, and an addi
tion to the physics building: $760,
000. The Advisory Budget Commis
sion makes its recommendations to
the legislature each biennium to
a book called "The Budget." The
book lists expenditures for the last
biennium, requests for the new
biennium, and the commission's
recommendations as to how much
of the requested appropriations
should be made.
The book includes similar data
on all state departments, institu
tions and agencies to which appro
priations are made.

'Very Pleased'
with Weekend
"I am very pleased with the visit
ing in the dormitories over the
week-end. All the reports that I
have received are quite favorable,"
Manning Muntzing, president of
the Interdormitory Council, said
Muntzing had warned dorm resi
dents prior to the week-end that
students "must be on their toes"
so that "we can expect visiting on
other game days to follow."
As to how much the plan was
used by students, Muntzing said
"The few dorms that I observed
were busily engaged with enter
taining their guests.'V
The president of the IDC said
"I feel that the advisors did a
tremendous job of making every
one feel at home. As soon as the
officers are elected, they will as
sume this responsibility with the
assistance of the advisors. Ifm
sure they will do an equally fine
job. Not only have the advisors
done a good job, but the entire
roll of residents, I feel, have re
sponded to the new privileges.
"Some dorms not having a TV
set used record players or radios,
belonging to the residents for the
enjoyment of the guests. Such
gestures as this anil the residents'
making a special effort to keep
the social rooms clean show the
fine way in which the residents in
the dorms have responded to the
visiting agreement."
Roy Holsten of the Office of Stu
dent Affairs said on Sept. 22 that
the present agreement was for
football season only and may or
may not be the first step in a per
manent plan.
