enousiy 'Admitting Negroes
By FRED POWLEDGE
Over a dozen student leaders yesterday came to the aid of
tnree Negro students who want to enter the University as un
dergraduates. The leaders, among them YMCA and YWCA presidents
and a former and present editors:
of The Daily Tar Heel, asked the
Board of Trustees to give the
three students "their. most earn
est, consideration" and asked
them to "approve if at all pos
sible the admission of these stu
dents." The three Negroes, all from
Durham, are being backed in their
plans to enter UNC by the Na
tional Assn. for the Advance
ment of Colored People. Attorney
C. O. Pearson, Durham lawyer,
is legal counsel for the students
and the NAACP.
The students have been turn
ed down by the University Ad
missions Office. Pearson has said
he plans to take his case to
Consolidated University President
Gordon Gray "sometime next
week." If the administration does
not allow the students to enter,
said Pearson, he will take the
case to the trustees. If trustees
resfuse, he said, he will seek a
federal court order.
University policy is to allow
Negroes in graduate or profess
ional school when the state does
not provide such schools for

The statement termed the
school's decision "one of the most
momentous decisions in the his
tory of the University. That de
cision, whether or not to admit
qualified Negro students to the
undergraduate schools next fall,
will not be an easy one to make;
and the results of a decision either
way will be far-reaching." j " !

give information concerning
when he plans to leave, his des

willing to carry and the cost to
each rider. A student who de

behavior will be considered a
failure to "adhere to the Cam
