When Sen. Hubert Humphrey
(D-Minn.) spoke here Friday night,
he took one side of this verbal
civil war that is being waged in
Washington. In that sense the
Senator's speech has been called a
"major policy speech" by many
observers here in Chapel Hill.
Regarding the defense of the

Noting Prime Minister Nehru's
assertion that India' would not

Ridgway Spoke Here
General Matthew Ridgway, Army Chief of Staff, spoke here
under the sponsorship of the Carolina Forum. The General empha
sized the need for cooperation between military and governmental
agencies. "The military man is an advisor and an executor," he said,
"not a formulator, not an advocate, with regard to the basic national
policies determined by the civilian authorities of the government."
