Oklahoma Coach Bud Wilkinson received a 30-foot telegram
Saturday for his team from well-wishers back in the Sooner state.
Presenting the telegram is W. J. Cook of Greensboro, Western Union

Jones. The telegram was tied with a crimson and green ribbon. UNC
Quarterback Buddy Sasser, however, shared the telegram circuits

him one almost as long. (Press Photo Service.)

'HELL ROARED HORTENSE:
Caroline Coeds Find
3 -Girl Rooms Trying
(EDITOR'S NOTE: When some Caroline Coeds started to un
pack their luggage a couple of weeks ago, they were surprised to
find two other girls sharing their rooms. The essay below, written
by two unnamed residents of a three-coed room, reflects the feelings
of some girls.) .
"Hell," roared Hortense after climbing the treacherous swing
ing ladder to the heights of her upper bunk.
And what was the matter with dear Hortense? Dear Hortense
had just made the trip into the altitude of her heavenly couch,
equipped with lighted cigaret in hand, only to find the ash tray
three feet below her on the floor. .
After making a quick trip down, paratrooper style, retrieving
the ash tray and ascending again, Hortense began to ponder on the
changes in her life since she moved into a three-girl room.
"Every girl is entitled to one dresser, one closet, one desk and
one bed." This sign that greeted Hortense on her arrival to Ratcellar
Dorm had at first dispelled all her fears of living in a three-girl
room. But this Joy was soon to fade when she arrived in the room
and found . . . three desks, yes, all neatly stacked one upon the other
three dressers, yes, back to back three beds, yes, one king size
and one regular three closets, yes, in which were placed desk
chairs, ash trays and trash cans, there being no suitable locale for
"Hell," said Hortense, being a girl of few words. .
But the weeks passed and Hortense endured after all!
Now in the swing of things, she has become a talented contribu
tor to the "Carolina Semesterly," in which the following poem of

this month, attended by several lo
cal cleaners. The day after the
meeting, one of the cleaners said
last night, cleaning prices rose in
Chapel Hill on several items.
A North Carolina statute de
clares illegal any "contract' com
bination in the form of trust or
otherwise, or conspiracy in re
straint of trade or commerce . .
According to one dry cleaner,
local cleaning establishments had
a meeting early this month and de
cided to raise their prices as a re
sult of the new minimum wage
Some of the cleaners, a tele
phone poll indicated, did not want
to raise their prices, but were vir
tually forced to, since the majority
present wanted to put the price
raise into effect.
A legal expert, presented with
all the known facts of the situa
tion yesterday said that, on the
basis of these known facts, the
cleaners' action could be inter
preted as a violation of the statute.
He also said, in view of such facts,
the situation could be brought to
the attention of the Orange Coun
ty Grand Jury.
The statute is taken from the
N. C. General Statutes, Ch. 75. I
read as follows:
Monopolies and Trusts
"75-1. Combination in restraint
of trade illegal. Every contract,
combination in the form of trust
or otherwise, or conspiracy . in re
