It appeared yesterday that no UP presidential candidate
would oppose the present attor-

talked of as a presidential hope
ful. Jack Stevens, former UP chair
man, is expected to get the nod
for vice-president. However, Bev
Webb and Bill Sanders have also
been mentioned in political cir
cles as possible nominees.
McCurUy when called on the
phone yesterday, said he had "no
comment" regarding his candida
cy. Asked if he'd accept the no
mination if asked, McCurry said,
'Yes, I guess so."
A junior from Shelby, McCurry
has served in all three branches
of student government. Currently,
he is serving as attorney-general
to President Tom Creasy. He has
served two terms in the student

jerved on the Men's Council.

Students Lucky With DTH
By EBBA FREUND
"You don't realize how fortunate
you are with this paper," said
Dean Norvel N.' Luxon of the
School of Journalism in speaking
about The Daily Tar Heel at yes
terday's investigative meeting.
"Neill and (Editor Charles) Ku
ralt are two of the best student
editors I have seen in my 34 years
of experience. Of course, the news
coverage could be improved, but
this is a problem even the New
York Times faces," he continued.
Thursday night's legislature
meeting resulted in the appoint
ment of a committee to investi
gate the "quality and circulation
problems of The Daily Tar Heel."
At the meeting charges were
brought that the newspaper was
not serving the students and that
something should be done about
it. The particular problems refer
red to at that meeting were the
quality of the news coverage and
The main points covered at the

fessor of English here, asserted in
-his humanities lecture last night.
Dr. Stovall, an authorty on Whit
man, chose for his topic "Leaves of
Grass: The Evolution of a Book,"
which is particularly timely, since
this year marks the centennial of
the publication of the first edition
of Leaves of Grass. Dr. Stovall's
lecture is one of the first of a ser
ies of commenmoration to Whit
man's book to be held on the UNC
campus. Other observations are
planned throughout the country.
Touching on Whitman's early
life, Dr. Stovall described him as
an ordinary boy with little known
about him which gave promise of
the poet." After writing numerous
conventional verses in his youth,
he began in 1884 to experiment
Crafy WieRencJ: Pink
Horse, Fake Meteor
You seen the huge pink horse at the top of Franklin St. hill
on the way to Durham?
Well, the pink horse now has the measles. "Some hoodlum
painted great big red spots on the horse" according to its owner,
Miss Scarlett Scott.
Miss Scott, owner of a doll shop, got the wooden merry-go-round
horse to advertise her business. She has just moved to
Chapel Hill from Richmond, Va., where she had her shop in the
old section of the city.
"It broke my heart to see my horse desecrated," said Miss
Scott yesterday. She went away Saturday and said that when she
returned she was perfectly astonished to see that such a thing
could happen in Chapel Hill.
Plans for repainting the pink horse are underway.
, Besides a spotted pink horse, a fake meteor added to week
About 11 p.m. last Saturday, flames were seen in the vicinity
of the flagpole in the center of the campus. People were run
ning around yelling, "A meteorite just landed!" according to an
observer. Flames like gasoline fire were leaping high into the sky.
Yesterday there was a crowd continually milling around the
scene. But it didn't fool too many people the sides of the hole
are slick as if dug by a shovel and the sod which was dug up can
be seen nearby.

Charles Hyatt brought up the
noint of circulation. Pulling a
stack of newspapers from under
the desk, he asked, "Is The Daily
Tar Heel being read or are there
too many papers printed?"
Kuralt answered that the policy
is and always has been, one paper
for every student. "This year the
newspaper has had fewer circula
tion problems than ever before,"
Bob Elder then asked what sys
tem The Daily Tar Heel used to
cover news on campus, and if this
system was adequate. Kuralt re
plied "the newspaper tried to print
as much news as limitations of
staff and space allow."
Elder then asked about a column
for announcement of club meet
ings, departmental functions and
guest speakers. Kuralt said the

ter developed in Leaves of Grass,
"Many of Whitman's most char
acteristic ideas are to be found in
this early verse the concept of
life as the union of matter and
spirit, the universiality of mind,
the acceptance of evil as well as
good, the immeasurable power of
love, the emphasis upon natural
religion and the frank treatment
of sex in literature . . . all of these

are to be found in his notebooks,"
Dr. Stovall said. 1
"For Whitman, Asia was the
symbol of spirit, of infinity and
the birthplace of religion, where
as Europe was the symbol of mat
ter, of the finite, and the birth
place of science. America, he be
lieved, would show the world the
true relation of matter and spirit,
finite and infinite, science and re
ligion," he said.

to do that. But, he continued, this
