trial of Junius Scales, charged

during the morning, but in the
afternoon session was asked only
three questions. Two were put to
him by Scales' attorney, a short
dark, man with a New York ac
cent: What draft board was Childs
registered with?; and another
question involving an economics
course Childs had once taken.
The prosecuting attorney for
the Government asked Childs on
ly one question: What were
Childs' recent activities in the
Communist Party? To .which
Childs answered that he had been
a member of the ' Chapel Hill
Communist Club' until it broke
up, and after that he had been in
contact with two men known to

It was noticeable that very few
people in the courtroom showed
any signs of excitement. The spec-
tators filled the available space
but were quite calm. Childs was
a relaxed witness, and Scales
himself seemed singularly unper
turbed. The jury, consisting of 13
men and 3 women, sat back in
their chairs and appeared unaf
fected by the proceedings, as did
the judge and the prosecuting at
torneys, though the latter from
time to time interjected objec
tions to their opponent's defense,
most of which were sustained.
Only Scales' attorney, the short
dark man from New York, seem
ed tense and a bit worried. .

today, Childs also told of attend

GREENSBORO, April 19 T
After calling only three witnesses
the government unexpectedly
rested its case against accused
Communist leader Junius Scales
This took the defense by sur
prise. So much so that Scales'
lawyer, David Rein, asked the
court for a delay until tomorrow
before beginning his presentation.
Judge Albert V. Bryan gave him
Rein said he was not prepared
to call his witnesses. He did not
say how many there would be
or where they lived. Scales was
seen filling out three or four
subpoenas to be served by the
U. S. Marshal today.
Shortly after the halfway point
in the seventh day of the Federal
Court trial, District Atty. Edwin
M. Stanley took Charles B. Childs
off the witness stand. Stanley then
said he had completed the case
against the red-haired 35-ycar-old
Childs, 24, a physics student
at the University of North Caro
lina, had testified that his last
contact with the Communist
Party as an FBI undercover in
formant came last Sunday. He
said he paid his party dues at
Durham to Bill Evans. He identi
fied Evans as business manager
of the Carolinas district.
Rein, after a rather perfunctory
crossexamination of Childs, read
to the jury from several pieces
of Communist literature intro
duced as defense evidence. The
leadings were intended to sup
port the defense position that the
party docs not advocate force and
violence. Then Rein announced
that he had nothing further un
til he called his first witness.
Court was adjourned.
An estimated 500 frolicking
students had gotten the first
panty-raid of the season off to
a start as The Daily Tar Heel

telephone call from correspon

and Assistent Dean of Student
Affairs Ray Jeffries had ap
peared on the scene.
The raiders, having gotten
a single pair of panties from
3rd floor Kenan, allegedly had
broken a lock on a Carr Dorm
and in Iindia. While organizing
Pipha-Raghabpur village project
in West Bengal, Tennyson became
acquainted with Gandhi.

tween Asia and the West, "Tito

At present Tennyson is writing
a novel about India, in addition
to frequent articles for The Man
