This was Carolina Forum c hair man 1'rautk Crowthcr's comment on

This, however, is thc negative side of silence

On the positive side cf the barrier of silence lies

After Months Of Waiting, The Yack Is Finally Here
Arthur Beaumont, campus police
chief, said yesterday there has
been an increasing amount ot
thefts and vandalism on campus.
Beaumont said an Ampex Stereo
Tape Recorder was taken from
213 Parker Dorm Tuesday night.
The dark grey recorder, owned by
James G. Ferguson, was valued at
While investigating the case, of
ficers discovered that other items
had been missing, but students
had not reported the thefts since
the articles were of minor value,
it was pointed out.
All pawn shops have been
alerted in the area to be on the
lookout for the tape recorder.
Anyone who has any information
on the recorder has been asked
to contact the campus police.
Beaumont said there has also
been much vandalism recently.
Many drink machines and tele
phones have been damaged.

this: American Universities are

most part are unconcerned with
the central issues of day. The pro

must go beyond this standard
At a deeper level, silence, re

to a traditional silence, and that

Carolina Student, Friend Seeking
Answer To Lost Confederate Sub
By LUTHER SMITH
A successful search for a "curs
ed" submarine and the unfolding
of the last chapter in its ill-fated
career could put a happy ending
on two years of research by a UNC
student and his partner.
Jerry C. Cashion, a sophomore
history major, and Robert L. S.
Cole Jr. first became interested in
the sub two years ago. Since then
they have used their spare time
to compile information on the boat
and are now confident they can
locale it. Anyway, they plan to try
this summer. Both are from States-ville.
The submarine is, or was, the
CSS Hunley, a Confederate "tor
pedoboat" described as being
"fish-shaped." The "unfolding"
will be the discovery of why it
sank after completion of its first
The fact that it did sink proba
bly surprised no one, for that was
not the first time. There was al'
ways an air of mishap about the
After the Hunley was built at
Mobile, Ala., it was capsized and
sunk in port by the waves from a
passing steamer. Two lives were
lost in that accident. The ship was J
raised and repaired, and it per-
formed without incident during!
succeeding test runs. j
During one of the last trial runs I
it was submerged but failed to
surface upon command, resulting I
in the loss of its seven man crew i

and tested. Then it was moved to
On the night of February 17,
1864, the Hunley slipped from
its dock into the inky depths of
the harbor. At some time after
9:15 p.m., it rammed its spar
torpedo into the side of the USS
Housatonic, a sloop of war de
ployed in blockading the port of
Charleston. The Hunley's victim
immediately sank, but the sub
marine never returned to dock,
if Jerry and Bob de find tho
sub perhaps the facts concerninr;
its disappearance can be cleared
where to look, because a few years
after the war, a "fish-shaped" boat
was seen lying close to the Housa
tonic by a diver who was examin
ing that wreck. But after 96 years
of being submerged in salt water,
it is doubtful that much of the sub
remains. Of even more value than
the submarine's hulk will be the
papers and documents il may hold.
If you believe in superstitions,
then yon might say it will never
be found because of its "cursed"
nature for seeming to want to stay
below surface. Jerry's reply to
that is, "We think it will be well
worth while to look for it anyway.
