clear reception.
Robert F. Schenkkan, director
of television for Consolidated Uni

notes the station haS received and
expressed hope that others would
continue to send cards to the sta

"We would greatly appreciate
hearing from the people in the
State concerning the reception of
WUNC-TV's test pattern," said
Schenkan. "It's our best means of
knowing exactly how well WUNC
TV will be received when we open
on January 8."
WUNC-TV, channel 4, is one of

Ancient Lamps

used in the old world at. the time
of the birth of Christ is now on

anthropology and archaeology,
the exhibit is a part of the 187

His collection dates from early

in the year 1186, making all of
the lamps on exhibit more than
750 years old and some as old as
2,000 years.
But It Won't Last Long. . .
It's Just Like Spring
Anyone who didn't know better would think spring had come
to Chapel Hill. Instead of the usual post-holiday slump there's an
unscasonal gaiety in the air, and everyone has taken to running
around without wraps, and sunning between classes.
Raleigh-Durham Airport Weather Bureau, though, says not to
waste your time planning beach parties for the weekend. The present
temperature, averaging in the middle 60's, will probably last two
or three days, and then the area will be in for a rainy spell, fore
casters say.
The cause of this unseasonable warmth, according to the
weather bureau, is a high pressure center which is moving slowly
eastward. The whole southeastern part of the country is being af
fected. Incidentally, the plants seem to be taking it all a lot more
sensibly than the humans. Even the Soulang magnolia, which has
been known to bloom when snow is on the ground, isn't showing
any signs of life, apparently aware that a winter that started as
late as this one did couldn't possibly be over already.
