Two Measures Face
By NEIL BASS
i-The student Legislature will
probably face a light docket to
night at its 7:30 meeting.
There are only two measures
officially slated to be debated, but
several others may be brought out
at the session.
The measures which may or
may not be brought to' a vote are
resolutions that were introduced
two sessions ago but were either
referred to special committees or
lield in the Ways and Means Com
mittee last week.
The ,two measures officially
slated to be brought out at the
meeting, promise to arouse little
dickering among the body.
One of these, a , bill providing
for selection of the new' student
government executive secretary,
is almost certain to be immediate
ly passed. .
Introduced by Tom Lambeth
Student Party), the bill asks that
the hiring authority be delegated
to a committee of three appointed
by the student body president. It
also makes the secretary "re
sponsible" to the president.
The other measure officially
supposed to be voted on is likely

trace of opposition.
It asks that the student bod;

the Legislature passes it.
There are several other meas
ures that may get a nod from th'
University Party-run Legislature
but this depends on the decisior
of the Ways and Means Commit
tee. Last week the Committee go'
several resolutions that it callec
too "abstractal" to even merit leg

Mentioning the difficulty in
volved in translating literature,
Jurgensen cited examples of what
he considers to be inaccurate, ob
scure translations of Ibsen's plays.
Jurgensen referred to the
abundant criticism Ibsen's plays
have suffered - obscurity, unplay
able dialogue, unfit subject and
asked why his plays have not died.
He said ' an intellectual croup has

sociologist, moralist and not as a
Jurgensen pointed out that Ib
sen was not a man of letters and
did not want to be. He spoke of
him as "the essentially ignorant
provincial he remained all his
life." But, Jurgensen said, he had
lots of horse sense.
"Ibsen is a theatreman's the

He said it was actors and direc

WUNC has received authority
from the Federal Communica
tion Commission to operate at
an effective radiated power of
15,500 watts, and the installa
tion of the necessary equipment
is almost complete.
During an interim period,
WUNC is operating at an ef
fective radiated power of 5,760
watts about four times the
former power, but less than the
full authorized power.
WUNC's increase in strength
was made ..possible by the gift
to the University of a 10 kilo
watt transmitter by the Jeffer
son Standard Broadcasting Com
pany of Charlotte. The equip
ment which formerly broad
cast the signal of WBT-FM in
Charlotte was moved to Chapel
Hill and has been installed in
the Swain Hall transmitting
room of . the Communication
Center. The installation was
made without additional finan
cial assistance from the Univer
sity. Robert Dever, senior engineer
on the WUNC transmitter staff,
said an additional electrical in
stallation will .be necessary be
fore the station can operate at
the full authorized power of
15,500 watts. Funds for this
additional installation are not
now available and no estimate

The Mayor of New York City,
Robert Wagner, spoke here last
night on municipal government
and its connection with the larg

Jim Wallace, director of Gra

The son of the author of the
famous Wagner Act said, "A
school with your tradition and
your liberal reputation, a school
which has been for over a century
the outstanding exponent of the

not fail to impress visitors, even
from New York."
Mayor Wagner called the city
of New York "a city of minori

"When I assumed the office of
mayor, I had determined that the
best government could be furnish

sible talent," he said.
Continuing, he said, "It has al
so been my philosophy that no
governmental system that has been
in operation .is perfect, and that
every governmental institution
needs modernization and recast

On juvenile delinquency, the
mayor said, "It was and is my view
that enough has been written and
enough has been studied of this
question over the years to war

my purpose to proceed with act

In answer to a question , on
