ally will be the biggest since "we're playing the best team
play this year." There will be a bonfire on the intramural
after the parade, said Collison.
The first panty raid of the
1955-56 year took place last
night, as a group of boys gath
ered at 12:15 a.m. iii the Lower
Quad, making noise highlighted
by the playing of a trumpet.
The group gathered in size and
went to the court in front of
Mclver Dorm where it stayed
five minutes. Then it went to
Carr Dorm in a group of about
400 and remained there for 15
minutes. The raid ended up on
'the intersection, of Cameron
Ave., and Raleigh Rd., where
the students began to disperse,
partly due to police coercion at
Carr, and to the need of sleep.
No arrests were made.

The University has been and is taking action to correct
the student car problem, according to Consolidated Univers
ity Secretary William Friday.
Friday's statement was made yesterday in response to an
accusation by state Rep. John'
t mstead that the University hadn't
done "anything" to solve the prob
lem. Umstead, member of the Univer
sity's Board of Trustees, asked the
Chapel Hill-Carrboro Merchants
Assn. Tuesday night to appoint a
committee to "investigate" the
student car problem. He said he
felt the trustees should take action
because the administration had
failed to act.
Croweli fittle, president of the
association told a reporter yester
day he had appointed the commit
tee, but that no real "action" was
planned on the problem. Little,
wh0 said he was personally op
posed to the formation of the
committee, said anything that
might come from it would be given
only from the viewpoint of "in
terested citizens." Harvey Bennett
of Chapel Hill has been named to
head the committee, Little said.
When Dean of Student Affairs
Fred Weaver was notified of Um
stead's statement, he referred a
reporter to his memorandum of
April, x955. The memorandum was
addressed - to Chancellor Robert
House and pointed out that the
University had taken definite
steps tQ correct the "car prob
lem." TRUSTEE REPORT
Weaver's memorandum states
that the University recognized the
Visiting Committee of the Board
of Trustees' two major recom
mendations and had complied with
both of them.
The Visiting Committee recom
mended: (1) "That the administration at
tempt to improve the regulation of
the use of cars.
(2) "That the administration
consider seriously the question of
the possession of cars by under
graduates." Weaver's memorandum stated
that point one had been complied
with by the "program of compul
sory registration of student auto-

A bill calling on the three mil-

tions be elected by popular ballot.
The bill was vigorously, attacked
from several quarters. Rep. Mc
Gilliardo, in reference to the UN
delegate, said, "Why not elect the
Secretary of State and the Secre
tary of Defense?"
"The delegate is not advisory to
the President," Rep. Brumfield
Speaking, against the bill, Rep.
Duvall emphasized that an elected
delegate would have too much
prestige and would overshadow
the President. Rep. Katzenstein,
elaborating further on Duvall's
theme, , said, "Point by point, I
have torn the bill asunder."
Rep. Brumfield, in a final plea
for popular vote of the delegate,
encompassed "the good farmers
of Yadkin County" and epitomized
his speech with,- "Why must we
fear the -people?"
There were five abstentions
from the voting.
Speaker for the evening was

hows .Democracy s
By FRED POWLEDGE
Japanese universities, says
Eiji Kojima, try to show their
students that democracy is bet
ter than communism by helping
them in a democratic way. ,
That way, he said yesterday,
is a lot. better than speaking out
directly against the Communist
Party, which is a legal organ
ization in Japan.
Kojima is a professor of eco
nomic geography in Keio Uni
versity, Tokyo. Currently study
ing American universities and
colleges, he spent two days here
Although economic geography
is not a very political field, he
said, the question of commun
ism enters in at Keio. Approx
imately 200 Keio students are
communists, he said, and there
are cells in every college and
university in Japan.
"We try our .best to make
student life comfortable," he
said, and "try to make the fi
nancial condition of the stu
dents better." Thus, he feels,
democratic methods will show
the supremacy of democracy to
"We don't say much directly
about communism," Kojima said..
He added that he and. others at
Keio try to ignore the fact that
communism exists, and "just say
that democracy is better."
Students who believe in com
munism, he said, are allowed to
maintain their beliefs. Kojima
said he would consider it an
abridgment of a student's right
to know if he were condemned
for communistic leanings.
Kojima said Keio University
was founded by Oiukichi Fuku
zawa, the man who introduced
western educational methods to
Japan. Fukuzawa also brought
liberal thought and the "west
ern way of thinking" to Japan,
Asked about the current up
roar in America's South about
what Gov. Hodges has termed
the "drastic reduction in U. S.
cotton textile tarriff rates for
ithe benefit of Japan," Kojima
said he feels Japan will "for a
certain degree" attempt volun
tary controls of textile exports
to the U. S.
Japan will have to do so "for
good will of the nation" (United
States), he said. "We have to
consider the public opinion" in
America, he added.
Kojima said he thinks "that is
what the Japanese government
has always been trying to do
not to instigate or raise some
bad feeling among some Ameri
He pointed to Japan's immi
gration problem of recent years,
when America complained of
large numbers of Japanese im
migrants. Then, he said, Japan
made a "gentleman's agree
ment" with the United States to
cut down the number entering
