That the Stanley family were inconsiderate enough to allow renowned Sheridan Whiteside to slip on ice in front of their home, breaking his hip, and thus force him to recuperate at for by Whiteside during the course of his visit. Six-Week Retaliation The retaliation lasts for six weeks, much to the chagrin of all concerned.

Operation A holition Shown At Duke Meet "Operation Abolition," the controversial film of the San Francisco student riots, was shown -at the National Student Association ' Spring Regional Conference in Durham last weekend. Fulton Lewis III, son of the radio newscaster Fulton Lewis, Jr., argued in favor of the film and its "sponsor," the House Un-American Activities Com mittee. Daniel Pollitt, associate pro fessor in the UNC School of Law, argued against HUAC and its film. Lewis defended HUAC's right to question suspected Commun ists on their political affiliation, saying, "The suspects are being questioned on their actions, which may be detrimental to the nation's best .interests. They are not being questioned on their beliefs. Pollitt Challenges Pollitt challenged the com mittee's right to carry on "judi cial" 'investigations. Neither Lewis nor Pollitt debated the issue of whether or not the film was a true evaluation of the student riots which occurred in protest of San Francisco investi gations of a HUAC subcommit tee in May, 1960. Eleven students represented UNC at the NSA conference, which lasted from Friday night through bunday morning.

BY JACK V. FOX United Press International Premier Fidel Castro's Communist-supplied armies ap peared to have crushed the invasion of Cuba Wednesday. A handful of revolutionaries were .reported to. have escaped to the Escambray mountains to. fight on as guer rillas but the main invasion force was reported wiped out or dispersed by Soviet-supplied tanks, planes and ar- tlilery. The rebel radio fell silent at 3: 30 p.m. EST and top exile sources in Miami conceded the end apparently had come for the band of 5,000 anti-Castro Cubans who in vaded the Bay . of Cochinos on Cuba's south coast Monday morning. ; A radio message from the . beachhead in the . swampy ground of Las Villas Province 90 miles from Havana was be lieved to be the last from the outnumbered invaders.

The escape plan had been agreed upon if Castro was able to crush them with the Soviet- designed Mig jets supplied by Czechoslovakia, the artillery from the big Skoda works in that Communist country and the squat Soviet-built tanks: They appeared in force Tues day and exiles who had hoped to crush Castro despaired of victory. A strike by the tiny rebel air force failed to halt them Castro announced his Migs and anti-aircraft fire had shot down nine m three days. Castro already had imposed a reign of terror in Havana to prevent any popular uprising against his regime which had sent more than 100,000 Cubans seeking political asylum in thc United States since Castro took power. Two Americans were execut ed at dawn with seven Cubans. Thousands of persons wer jail ed, some at .them" Americans. Plotels were pressed into service as prisons for "women political prisoners. A Sport auditorium was jammed with men.- Cuba announced triumphant ly it had shot down four rebel bombers Wednesday. It said one of them was piloted by an American who was killed and that this proved the invasion was aided and abetted by the United States. Cuban Foreign Minister Raul Roa said in the United Nations the plane took off from an American base.

Filmed in 1923-24 on real lo cations in San Francisco and in the ' heat of Death Valley, "Greed" has been called a! stark, uncompromisingly .real istic picture of the tragedy of lust for money and a portrait of a man and a woman whose lives arc ruined by psychologi cal aberrations they cannot un derstand. , "Greed" is considered by some reviewers a more nearly literal transcription of a novel to the screen than is any other film. Originally Six "Hours Taking nine months to film and reaching forty-five reels in length, von Stroheim planned to present "Greed" as a six-hour FRESHMAN FIESTA The "Freshman Fiesta" a combination of entertain' ment and clothing sale, will be held this afternoon from 5-9 p.m. at Town and Camp us.

Of the original firty-five reels, one New York critic wrote in April, 1924: "It was a magnifi cent piece of work,- but was forty-five reels lorig. We went into the projecting room at 10:30 in the 'morning; we staggered out at 8:00 that night. I can't imagine what they are going to do with it. . . . Episodes came along that you think have no bearing on the story, then ten or twelve reels later, they hit you with a crash. For stark, terrible realism and marvelous artistry, it is the greatest pic ture I have ever seen." Famous Director Von Stroheim, called "the director's director," was inter nationally famous for his direc tion of some of " Hollywood's most significant and sophisti cated pictures. He was equally famous until his death in Paris - in the late fifties as an actor. His last American role was. that of a former silent director of N o r m a Desmond" (Gloria Swanson) in Billy Wilder's "Sunset Boulevard." His great est role was cenerallv consider ed that of the World War I German officer in Jean Renoir's .classic "La Grande Illusion." t i t it '.-,V'- Mm w" 'it m.
