ON PRESIDENT'S QUALIFICATIONS:
By CLARKE JONES
A special business meeting of the Chapel Hill Chapter Tol the
American Assn. of University Professors was held last night at 7:30
in Gerrard Hall. Prof. Alexander Heard, chairman of the Special
Committee on the Presidency, presented the committee's report which
included suggestions, for participation by the faculty in the selection
of the University president. . ' - ,-'
The committee, comprised of Profs. John P. , Gill in, George L.
Simpson, K. L. Ullman, Louis Welt,
Maurice Whittinghill, and Heard,
stated, "we are deeply conscious
that the presidency of the Consoli
dated University carries unique ed
urational responsibilities and op
portunities, and we feel that the
special qualities or the job call for
spcial qualities of the person."
Some of the special qualities the
committee called for are:
recognizes constructively the spe
cial conditions of campus freedom
that must be maintained if stu
dents and faculty are to fulfill the
obligations and the promi.e of
learning, inquiry, and service in
a university of the people."

The group is rehearsing every

Sound and Fury was begun many
years ago in Chapel Hill by a
group of students who organized
and presented a, series of musical
shows to the student body.
However the group died in sev
eral years for lack of interest.
In 1954 a group of students led
by Miss Bernardin and sponsored
by the Graham Memorial Activities
Board revived Sound and Fury with
the production of "Scandals of v55."
This was followed by their pre

The Jewelry Industry Council in New York
cites the two new looks for this fall as "the gold
en look" and the "look of very fine type of jew-
elry." The council stresses the importance of wear
ing a whole collection of bracelets, either big bold
chains, or bracelets dazzling with pearls or col
Larger rings are predicted, and the dangling
earring is oh its Way out; the council says. The
oversized pin is the biggest news this season.
Take that basic black dress and wear it mo
vie gazing with a gilded oversized coin pin just
a little below the ; shoulder. For gala Saturday
evenings, watch the gleam in your date's eye
match - that glitter in your rhinestone sunburst
pin which you rnight attach either on your shoul
der blade, at hipline or in the center of just a
little off-center on the bodice.
A rhinestone headband looks lush with dark
evening attire. With a plain satin headband, try
clipping on. an earring for added glamour.
Sparkling gems in sapphire blue, ruby red or
emerald green; smartly accessorize white satin,
brown velvet, black lace or beige brocade. "How
about a giant pin right in the center of your waist
line (front or back) as in the accompanying cut?
With a bateau neckline, it might perch just be
low your shoulder.
Casual dating calls ior gold bangle bracelets,
gold safety pins, textured gold bracelets, gold but
ton earrings In fact, we definitely believe in gold
for this fall. Try matching your'gold jewelry with
gold shortie gloves, a gold fur snood, leopard belt
or Jjag for a really striking effect. -
Just for funx wear an emamel watch on your
belt or on the collar of a jersey blouse, dangling
from a gold safety pin.
Heraldrie pins look neat on sweaters when
worn at the hip or just below the throat.
For the UNC-Duke game Saturday, if you want
to look casual but still "dressed up," an oversized
sunbursi pin -from beneath the collar of a coat
is extremely effective. With suits you might wear
it at the hipline or over a pocket.
Stumped for a place to wear that pin? Don't
forget, the possibilities of giving an old basic hat
new life by the addition of a glittering Thinestone
button or gilded pin.
According to State Highway Pa
trolman C. J. Rogers, the car driv
en by Hoffman rammed , into the
back of a tractor-trailer, running
up tinder the traiier.
The driver of the triick, Paul
E. Hollman of Cherryville, said
he had slowed down in order to
see a truck in the ditch at the
side of the highway. Hollman said
he did not stop and was unable
to avoid the collision after seeing
Hoffman's car coming up behind
him in the rear view mirror.
Hoffman suffered head injuries
and a broken leg. He was rushed
to the hospital. Ilis father, Duke
A. Hoffman, was at his bedside
when he died.
