NAACP Off idol's Letter Asks Gray For Assistance By FRED POWLEDGE An official of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People has asked University Presi dent Gordon Gray to "take a strong forthright stand and reverse the act and deed" of the Universi- j tj s refusal to admit three Negro students as undergraduates. The official, C. O. Pearson of Durham, is chairman of the Legal j Redress Committee" of the North r Carolina NAACP, and is legal rep- j reseniative for the three students, ! all graduating seniors at a Durham ! high school. - j Pearson s letter, three pages long, ! was mailed to Consolidated Univer-, s.ty President Gray this week. A . copy of the letter was made availa ble to The Daily Tar Heel yester day. The three students, according to Pearson, are Ralph and Leroy Frasier and John L. Brandon. Pear- son has said he will take his case expected to be enacted into law. to federal court if the University j The bill authorizes the Board of and the Board of Trustees refuses Trustees of the University of North to admit the Negroes. t Carolina, of East Carolina College, Pearson quoted a letter he said 1 of Appalachian State Teachers Col he received from Director of Ad- lege and of West Carolina College missions Rov Armstrong in which ' to issue bonds for " the purpose Armstrong was alleged to have told ' the three students "the trustees of the University have not changed! the policy of admission of Negro j students to the University. Negroes ; are eligible to make application to come to the University for graduate and professional study not offered at a Negro college in North Caro lina. Negroes are not eligible to make application for admission to the undrgraduate divisions of the University." The letter from Armstrong, said Attorney Pearson, "seems to be a studied attempt to be discourteous in referring to the applicants by their first names. I am certain that business correspondence emanating from your institution does not us ually foliow this form." Arm strong's letter, said Pearson, ad dressed the three Negroes as "Dear l,eroy and Ralph (andJohn):" Pearson said he felt Armstrong's "poaition is not only contrary to the law as revealed by the recent cases decided in the Supreme Court of the United States, but also it is not in keeping with the type of j leadership which a great University .should provide for the guidance of its state and community in the de velopment of justice and human relations." The NAACP official said he felt the University's position, as ex pressed in Armstrong's letter, "is ! untenable either upon legal, moral or spiritual grounds. Surely a great Lnivtrsity such as yours will not use its tremendous prestige and influence to spearhead a fight a-ainst citizens of North Carolina ( who are attempting merely to se cure rights and opportunities granted to them by the Constitution of the United States." Pearson said he believed "the great majority of the students are quite willing to accept qualified Negroes as fellow studnets. It isjral functions and activities of each ' .1 JL. - " 'i ' .!

Current GM Director Jim Wallace, whose term ends in Sep tember, told the group yesterday he is "not a candidate for the per manent directorship," although he would accept the post on a tem porary basis. A personnel committee, appoint ed to recommend a temporary di rector, reported it could not make a decision until it interviewed "one other person." Bob Young, chairman of the committee, said four alternatives lay before the board: Hire a new, temporary di rector from outside the Univer sity, retain Wallace and staff, pro mote Asst. Director Jim Mclntyre to temporary director or hire a student or some other person pre sently affiliated with the Univer sity. Young said an extra meeting would be required to decide on the temporary director. After some objections by Joel Fleishman and Ed Yoder, the group agreed to meet Sunday afternoon at 3 o' clock. In making his bid for the post of temporary director, Wallace de clared: "Of all the persons considered for the temporary directorship, I am the only one who is not a can didate for the permanent director, ship . . .
