2iooo participants fanned out to lGG roundtables to
conference topic no. '.- -r
jould Our. Schools Accom- ence"'and said every delegate had
been informed of this in advance.
Instead of voting resolutions,
the plan is for each of the discus-.
sion tables to turn in subcommit
tee reports. The chairmen of the
table groups will meet and go ov
er the findings of the groups, and
finally an over-all report on each
topic before the conference is to
be drafted by two chairmen se
lected from among Hhe table ,
. Mitchell also told reporters "1 1
think it's the silliest thing im-1
aginable that the conference is not i
disscusing segregation. I think
they're not discussing the issue
because they want to duck it."
Segregation is not on the pro-
ficials say they expect it will in
evitably enter into one or more of
the six topics about , which the
conference is built.
The day's session opened with
a speech by II. Grant Vest, Col
orado Commissioner of Education,
who outlined the topic for the sec
ond round of table sessions: "In
What Ways Can We Organize Our
School Systems More Efficiently
and Economically?' .
:There seems to be a very real
fear," he said, "that our present
school district structure in far too
many places . . is so anemic we
cannot pour enough money into it
to provide the robust kind of an
educational program needed." "'
. In many places,' he continued, "a
small district school "meanders in

munication and travel have com
pletely erased the boundaries that
once set the district apart."

N By ROBERT BARTHOLOMEW
Officials of the UNC Press re
ported yesterday that their latest
publication, Governor Tryon and
His Place, by former Daily Tar
Heel Editor Alonzo Thomas Dill
was being well received through
cut the nation. '
. This non-fiction work publish
ed Nov. 19, is the story of Gov
ernor William Tryon of North
Carolina and his famous place at
New Bern, which became known
as "Tryon's Palace." It is also
the story of the lively cultural
life of which the building was
the center and the political
storms that whirled around it
and Governor Tryon.
Dill was born in New Bern in
1914 and received his A.B. de
gree in journalism from UNC in
1&J5, with the fourth highest
average, in his class. During his
senior year he was editor of The
Daily Tar Heel and a member
of the Golden Fleece.'
Upon graduating, he worked
for a year as a reporter for the
United' Press in Chicago and
Des Moines and a year as legis
lature reporter for The News
and Observer in Raleigh. From
1937 until 1950 he worked on
The Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, be
ginning as a reporter and leav
ing as associate editor.
In 1948 he was one of the
three national winners, of The
New York Herald Tribune Ogden
Reid Fellowship award, and
spent the tollowing year abroad
in 10 European countries.
Dill was historical research
consultant for the Tryon Palace
Restoration Commission and is
now assistant director of the
Jamestown Williamsburg -Yorktown'
From the outset the palace,
designed to serve as a meeting
place of the General Assmbly
and a repository for neglected
public records, excited controver
sy. The increased poll tax neces
sary for its building and main
tenance fell cruelly on the back
country, western dnhabitants of
North Carolina in . comparison
with its impact on the wealthier
planters and merchants of the
eastern part of the .state.
The effort to collect this tax
led to civil bloodshed, suppress
ed by Tryon and the easterners
in a tragic clash of arms, at the
Battle of Alamance in 1771,
The governor who followed
Tryon was driven out by the
Revolution and the palace be
came tile first seat on the in
dependent government of North
Carolina. Peace and indepen
dence w'on, the dark days of in
flation settled upon New Bern.
The palace fell into a sad state
of disrepair with theft and van
dalism assisting the process of
In 1792, three years before
the University of North Carolina
began to operate, the General
Assembly, meeting in the fadd
elegance of the palace, voted to
move the capital to Raleigh. Six
years later the palace was de
stroyed by fire. At the present
j tini the palace is being restored.

He said University workmen
were being fired "unjustly" and
accused administration officials of
"misuse" of state persdnnel. Smith
named a particular instance in
which he said an employee was
fired primarily because he was an
official of the local union. '
Teague said the laborer was not
discharged because of union "af
filiation," but simply because he'
neglected his job. Regarding
Smith's charge about misuse of
state personnel, Teague said all
work done by workmen for Uni
versity officials was paid for pri
vately by the official. He said the
University had cancelled checks
issued by officials out of their own
pockets for work done by Univer
