he'd second it just so the council

cars on campus. "This method," he
said, "would be highly efficient."
The council didn't, however,
agree with Gates and when voting

Originally calling for immediate

by Johnson C. Smith University.

kitchen," she. said. "And it caused :
the coffee urn in the old butler's
pantry to explode."
Raj' Warren, University's elec

f night the fire was probably caused
by faulty wiring.
As proof, Warren exhibited a
charred electrical outlet from the
butler's cabinet. The fire, he said,
evidently started from a wire from
the coffee urn which was plugged
into the outlet.

last night introduced a bill in the
House which called for, the expan

equal transfer of credits in trans

institution to another. Among the
Carolina delegates who spoke , in
favor of the bill were Stanly Shaw,

among the respresentatives.
Both houses passed bills calling
for the placing of all state-supported

The council, composed sf 70

the resolution his "full approval."
Bit Of Fun
: RALEIGH, Nov. 18 State Stu
dent Legislature delegates en
gaged in some strange political
maneuvers here today.
The senate in an early session
passed unanimously a bill call
ing for the House of Representa
tives to be dissolved. When the
House was notified of this mo
tion, Speaker Jim Turner of the
House appointed Lewis Brum
. field, UNC, chairman of 9 com
mittee which would ascertain
what the House shoud do con
cerning the matter.
Brumfield went to the Senate
chamber to try and find out why
the bill was passed. However,
he no sooner got there than he
was removed bodily from the
Senate and was carried back to
the floor of the House. The
House immediately began to
consider means of retaliation.
Meanwhile, the Senate, after
Brumfield's removal, adjourned
and its members entered the
House chamber to sit in on its
session. They were ordered re
moved, and this was done. David
Reed, UNC, today's president of
the Senate, was picked up by j
House members and carried out.
The House following this im
mediately passed b3r acclamation
a bill which forbade the word
"Senate" to be used at any time
during its sessions.
Following these actions both
houses returned to the scheduled
order of business.

"Because the Democratic Party

which encompasses the time-honored
Southern view, . to wit, a mini
