alumni began to pour into the

people. As one Inn employe put
it, "The place is a madhouse."

speaking to graduating seniors at

University of North Carolina, took
stands for freedom and expressed
determination to resist restraints
"by interference or undue pres

proverbial rafters, as Governor Hodges gave the featured address.

distress (("I, er, ah, lost my card
to get my class tickets . . .

panic ("Ye gods, I left all my
summer pants at home").
Many of the local eating estab

again opened for business.
For those of you who have never
been here before, you will find
below a brief rundown of the Uni
versity and the town. For those
who have been here before, the
remainder of this article may
serve to remind you of a place
you haven't been to in a while.
We'll take the campus first.
First on the list is Graham
Memorial. Here you will find a
spacious lounge, amply furnished
with soft chairs and sofas, with
music piped in ofrm the informa
tion office across the hall. Right
next to the lounge is a TV room,
which is next to a small kitchen
which has a few refreshments.
Downstairs is te air-conditioned
pool room, along with the endez
vous Room, which has a juke box
perative that the University "be
free to listen to differing views on
controversial issues of the day."
President Friday said, "This
University has withstood pressures
before; I do not fear the future,
for the University will withstand
Chancellor Aycock spoke at the
annual Alumni Luncheon in Lenoir
Hall. President Friday spoke in
and plenty of room for dancing.
In the hallway are drink and
candy machines. A barber shop
is in the back.
On the second floor are the stu
dent government offices, along
with "The News" office.
You'll find free flicks in the
auditorium at Carroll Hall on Fri
day and Saturday nights. These
flicks range or at least have in
the past from old Lon Chaney
silents to more recent films such
as "Picnic," "Bus Stop" and "The
Benny Goodman Story."
The Pine Room in the basement
of Lenoir Hall is a favorite hang
out for the coffee drinkers and the
bridge players. A juke box is also
And of course there is the li
brary. We just thought we'd tell
you about it, so you'll at least
know there is one. It's that big
building sitting there across the
street from the Bell Tower. It has
books in it, along with maps,
magazines, newspapers and many
other interesting little things. And
the stacks are air-conditioned.

remarks chiefly to graduating
seniors and parents.
Quotations from Chancellor Ay

"An institution engaged in
higher education cannot be a uni

freeze knowledge or doctrine

(Continued on Page 7)
Chancellor Ayock and President Friday also gave addresses to
the seniors. But, of course, the highlight of the evening was the
conferring of degrees.
For a between-classes break
there's Y-Court. Here you're like
ly to meet that good-looking
blonde who sits next to you in
Basket-Weaving 43. And if you're
not careful you'll lose that donut
to one of the ever-present dogs
who lurk in the shadows to snatch
little goodies away from unsus
If you happen to be up around
the corner of Cameron Ave. and
Columbia St., between classes you
can get that donut at the Scuttle
butt. The dogs are here, too, along
with bees that infest wastebaskets
The town is equally varied in its
assortment of places to go and
things to do. Beginning on East
Franklin vSt.f there's .' Kemp's
Record shop, , where you can go
and browse, or buy, or browse and
buy. Next door is the Dairy Bar.
Right next to the Post Office is
Harry's, where you can find the
local crop of "beats," along with
contemporary paintings, beer and
a menu that ranges from peanut
butter sandwiches to steaks.
