resolution providing for anew mu

land was asked whether he fav
ored D. C. citizens' having the
right to vote. He said under our
electoral college system, giving the
right to vote in national proce

present time; however, he stated
he was in favor of the city's hav

rather than being run by Congress.
He also said he was in favor of
the Lodge-Gossett amendment pro
viding for proportional distribution
of electoral votes in the states in
ratio to the popular vote. He felt
this system would be more "dem
ocratic." Queried on voting for state tax

Sen. William F. Knowland (R
Calif.) elaborated on his statement
on the 1954 censure of Sen. JoT
seph McCarthy (R-Wis.) in an in
terview after' his speech.
He was one of the 21 senators to
vote against the-censure, and said
he did so because he felt the awak
ening McCarthy caused among the
American populace as to the dan
gers jof infiltration by such men
as Alger Hiss and Irving Peress
was good, although he would hot
endorse the McCarthy "proce
dures." On the question of whether the
United States could trust the re
gime of Chiang Kai-shek On For
mosa, the Senator said with the
new . supervision of Americaft ex
penditures in foreign countres, the
U. S. felt safe in trusting and aid
ing the Chiang regime. He further
said the corruption and possible
mishandling of'U. S. funds in Chi
na during World War II was as
much the fault of ineadequate U.
S. supervision as it was of corrup
tion by Chiang or his subordinates.
Questioned on statehood for Al
aska and Hawaii, Knowland said
he was in favor of statehood for
both, but felt there was stronger
supporting evidence on the side of
Hawaiian statehood due to histor
ical, economic and political fac
tors. However, he was hopeful f or
approval for both in ,the near
future, although he said he did

The student Legislature held its
first meeting of the academic year
last night, but' no' measures came
before the body for decision.
One measure, a bill; introduced
during the last session of the 1954
55 academic , year, was slated to
come up for debate; but. the Ways
and Means Committee j pigeon-holed

Jim Exum (University Party),
committee chairman, said that the
bill was withheld because the re
presentation clause and other parts
needed more "deliberation."1
Two reports were given to the
students solons, one by David Reid,
chairman of the Carolina delega
tion to the National Student's As
sociation congress, and one by Tom
Lambeth, Publications Board chair
man. Reid told of the major areas of
student interest with which the
delegates concerned themselves.
These were national affairs, stu

tional affairs and international af
fairs. " ;j ! ! -
As far as individual topics un
der the foui classifications above
was concerned, Reid said the dele

students today. ,

Parties Are Over For Coeds Now
Sorority parties, like this one at the ADPi house, are now over for coed rushees. Girls will receive
their bids from sororities today.

the new coeds might as well re

Who says the Library isn't be
ing used? Figures prove hun
dreds of assignments arc being
read there daily.
O. V. Cook, associate librarian,
terms the situation "gratifying."
"We seem much busier this
year, almost overflowing. It is
gratifying to notice how re
sources are being used," he said.
Probably the most active place
in the library is the reference
room, where approximately 1,200
freshmen have been given lec
tures and library examinations.
"Student use has started out
rather briskly," reported Geor
gia Faison, who is in charge of
freshman tests. Screening tests
were given to those who felt
they had enough experience.
Of the 397 who took the first
test, , 233 passed. Fuzzy or con
fused answers were counted
wrong, Miss Faison said, s
In the Reserve Reading Room
the number of two-hour books
checked out from the desk has
increased daily. On Friday, Sept.
16? there were 74 checked, out.
On Thursday, Sept. 22, the num
ber shot up to 306.
Across the marble hall in the
General College Reading Room,
Jim Harrelson, a student assist
ant, said "Thd room is just not
large enough for the number, of
people. Since the state has cut
appropriations, the Library is
only able to employ one librarian,
and four student assistants, as
compared with six students as
sistants last 'year." From 750 to
500 books leave the desk daily.
Oliver Orr,' 1 assistant head of
the Circulation Dept., reported
1,928 books were checked out
during the first week of school
last year as compared with
1.9S6 last week. He said that
since most freshmen have not
yet started to use the books in
the stacks, circulation will soon
The Rare Book Room has had
