W.Franklin At Night: Quiet Reigns
BY RON SHUMATE
West Franklin Street at night
is like a town in itself. It is
not at all like its counterpart
On the other side of Columbia
For nocturnal West Franklin
paints an entirely different pic
ture for its other and longer
half, with its near-deserted side
walks and streets, its bareness
of the "night people" and a
quietness uncommon to a uni
, Only a few places display any
sort of life: the service stations,
a couple of eateries, beer par
lors and a tool hall.
The . bus station, relatively
quiet during the daytime, is all
but dead after sundown, as
darkness seems to frighten any
would-be late travelers back into
the safety of their homes. The
10:30 bus from Charlotte comes
in to a darkened station, occa
sionally deposits a passenger and
moves on into the night, leav
ing the lightless station sitting
quietly on its little hill.
Across the street a cafe light
blinks with monotonous regulari
ty. Two lovers stroll along the
street, pausing to look in the
Window of a grocery store, and
then move on, arm in arm.
Occasional laughter drifts out
of a pool hall, Coats on the soft
eight air, and then is lost in the
noises of a passing car.
And then all is quiet again.
But the silence is short-lived,

Change Of Address
Ray Jefferies, assistant to the
Dean of Student Affairs, reminds
students who have changed their
addresses since spring semester to
be sure to send in a change-of-address
form to the post office.
If students fail to do this, says
Jefferies, they will not get the
mail that comes to their old ad

like a piece of black tape through western Cha

. STUDENT DIRECTORIES
For those of you who have call
ed, written, asked or just plain
wondered, the summer Student
Directories aren't out yet. But they
will be ready for consumption soon.
Just be patient.
Further west there is more
activity, as the Negro commu
nity comes out into the night to
laugh and cajole. And their
laughter and banter permeates
the air and drifts around on the
quiet spring breezes that spora
dically drop down out of no
where, sweep up the block and
then are gone again and forgotten.

In Film Festival
Charlie Chaplin baggy pants,
derby hat, black mustache and
all will be featured in this
week's Summer Cinema, Thurs
day at 7:30 p.m. in Carroll Hall.
The feature is a series of ex
cerpts from 12 comedies Chap
lin made during his prime in
1916. Almost all the elements of
his art may be found in these
short comedies, from which he
borrowed and expanded on later
in his feature productions.
Today nearly all of Chaplin's
films are considered classics.
The selections in this film offer
a sampling of his early art, the
beginnings of a type of satire to
be mimicked by succeeding com
edians for many years.
Much of the credit for estab
lishing the motion picture as a
popular form of entertainment
must be given to this man,
Charles Spencer' Chaplin.
George Bernard Shaw called
Chaplin "The only genius in mo
tion pictures." i
James Agee said, in Life,
" . . . The finest pantomine,
the deepest emotion, the richest
and most poignant poetry ia
Chaplin's work . . . Even if he
had never gone on to make his
magnificent feature-length come
dies, Chaplin would have made
his period in movies a great one
singlehanded even if he had
made nothing except "The
Cure," or "One A.M."
