Judge Says Students
Received Fair Trials
By DELAINE BRADSHER
In answer to a question as to
whether the opinion floating
around campus that the four boys
convicted of taking part in the
panty raid received an unfair trial,
Judge William S. Stewart said
yesterday, T had not heard of
that opinion and I dissent on it."
Judge Stewart, who is the son-in-law
of Chancellor Robert
House, said the boys who asked
for a jury trial and those who ap
pealed would have to appear at
the June 20 session of Orange
County Superior Court.
Gordon Forester, student who has
investigated the panty raid case,
said yesterday, "According "to sev
eral student government leaders
with whom I have talked, the de
cision to have the nine students
tried in Recorder's Court was not
agreed to in the meeting called by
Dean Roy Holsten."

Forester said "Manning Munt

was against the decision which the
student government was called on
to agree to."

is true, but I believe Chief Sloan
when he says that he would not
have prosecuted the boys in Re

Lewis Brumfield, who was Pre
sent at the meeting, said, "When
we were first presented with the
possibility of having the boys tried
by civil court we were all against
it. Finally we acquiesced in the
decision. I don't think it would
have made any difference what
student government officials
thought."

Student
Postpones
By NEIL BASS
The student Legislature voted
last night to postpone the proposed
fee-raise referendum for another
week.
This is the second time the date
for voting on a fee raise has been
moved " to a later date.
The Legislature decided the fate
of two bills on an otherwise com
paritively lax agenda.
The two measures voted on
were: 1) A bill to appropriate $135
to the junior class for a "picnic,"
and 2) A bill to appropriate $450
to the All-Campus Conference,
The conference appropriation
passed without opposition.
The appropriation for the jun
ior class failed despite an appeal
by class President Bill Sanders.
The reason the various repre
sentitives gave for rejecting the
bill were that the Legislature, in
Larry McElroy's words, "ain't got
the money;" '. and secondly, it
might pave the way for other
"special legislation," Again in the
words of McElroy, Student Party
floor leader.
REFERENDUM 'ADVERSE
EFFECTS'
The referendum on student fees
was scheduled to be held on May
3, but a motion by , Bob Young 1,
(SP) called for the vote to be put
off until May 10. '
The reasons Young gave for i
shelving the referendum on the i
shelf temporarily again were: 1)
The newly elected Elections Board
chairman had not had time to "set
up" the board for a referendum,
and 2) The state Legislature will ;
be discussing "a dormitory rent
hike on the same day."
Young emphasized, and the Leg
islature endorsed, that while a
"self-imposed" raise tiy the stu
dents might not be incentive for
the state Legislature to raise
dormitory rents, there might be
some "adverse effects" if the stu
dent body passed the referendum
at this time."
If. the state Legislature passes
the dormitory rent-hike proposal,
it will cost dormitory residents
$30 more to stay in University
residences.
If the student body passes the

Last night, a near-capacity
crowd witnessed the finest stu

Hill in some time.
. According to several 0ld-timers,
this show is the first in fifteen
years or so that has been good
enough to cause the audience to
stand up and cheer.
At 8:20 an impatient audience
was itching for a show, and they
really got one. Right from the
opening number, which was a
singing and dancing extravaganza,
the audience was electricaly re

Will Ask
To Aid Campaign
By ED MYERS
The administration announced yesterday a proposal to introduce
next fall a program of "compulsory registration of automobiles and
strict enforcement of regulations."
This is the action the administration has taken as a result of the
Trustee Visiting Committee's rec-
ommendation that UNC attempt
to improve the regulation of the
use of cars and that it consider
seriously the question of posses
sion of automobiles by undergra
duates." "Our conclusion is that we do
not. at this time favor arbitrary
denial of the privilege of keeping
an automobile to any class of stu
dents except those who forfeit
the privilege as a result of legal
or disciplinary action," said Wea
ver. . . .
According to the proposal, after
next, fall's registration "a letter
must be sent to the parents of all
students under 21 years of age who
indicate that they will keep a
car. The letter ..will remind the
parents of the. University request
that they not permit their son or
daughter - to keep an automobile
in Chapel except in instances of
genuine need for one and ask that
they file with us a notice of con
sent." Another proposal is ". . . admin- j
istrative enforcement of certain
minimal requirements for keeping
a car."
"In this," Weaver said, "we
would . seek student f cooperation
and support." For example, persis
tent violations of traffic rules or
other abuses would lead to action
ranging from a warning and pro
bation to suspension from col
lege." The statement goes on to sug
gest a joint conference of town
and University representatives
looking toward improved mutual
assistance in dealing with the pro.
blem of traffic control.
Discussion ' of the Visiting Com
mittee's recommendations was
mndnrt.ed in thft Council on Stu
dent Affairs, at which the student
tiody president and other student
representatives were present,
along with the Administrative
Board of Student Affairs and the
Student Activities staff.
Barefoot Day

GM Dance Tomorrow
Graham Memorial Activities Board will sponsor an informal dance
tomorrow night from 9 until midnight at the Carolina Inn Ballroom to
conclude the week-long celebration of Graham Memorial's 23rd birth
day. Music for the informal affair will be provided by Jim Crisp and
his 12-piece orchestra. Soft lights and refreshments will round out
the informal atmosphere, according to a GM spokesman.
The dance will be held in honor of the senior class and their dates,
said the spokesman, who added that there will be no admission charge.
He expressed regret that bad weather earlier in the week necessi
tated postponing the jazz concert and blanket party originally sched
uled for last Monday night. He said the- slight confusion caused by the
postponement and bad weather prevented large attendance when the
jazz concert was held in the Rendezvous Room Wednesday night.
ley Barrow, pointed to the im
probability of Nationalist China's
consenting to her removal from
the council. This consent would
be necessary, he said, since Na
tionalist China has a veto in that
body. i
Jim Holmes spoke of the cor
ruption of Chaing Kai-Shek and
praised the good intentions of
Nehru and the industrial progress
of India.
Miss Frances Burrows said that
the removal of the Nationalist
China would have a bad effect on

The third affirmative speaker,
Scotty Hester, contended that the
removal of Nationalist China
would have a good effect on the
free world.
Larry McElroy, the last speaker,
spoke of the corruption of the
Grant and Harding administrations
and said that Nehru was a Machi
avellian power politician who will
strive to be on the winning side.
The query failed by a vote of
the two societies, 15 to 9.
Refreshments were served after
