groups and the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley.
"The Chapel Hill protest rally has been assured of simul

"Contact has also been made with civil rights and free
speech groups in Detroit, at Syracuse and Brandeis Universi
ties. It is planned that telephone communication will be estab

"The time and place of the open meeting will be announced

"I would welcome fraternity participation in open discus

McKissick, contacted in Durham, said he had been informed
of the rally, but "details are not definite and I can't say now
whether or not I'll be there."
Gardner said, "We are seeking normal administrative per

McKissick confirmed Gardner's statement that local and na

fraternities which have racially discriminatory clauses in their
Gardner said that local and national organizations will "seek
to determine if the University's chartering of fraternities and
sororities, which according to Dean of Men William G. Long
have racial clauses in their constitution, does not violate the
University's act of compliance with, the Civil Rights Act of
1964." ' '
Long told the DTH yesterday that a survey concerning fra
ternity discrimination was begun last October. He said that
although the study is not finished, to the best of his knowledge
about five of UNC's fraternities have discriminatory constitu
tions. Denies Long's Statement
Gardner said he "vigorously denies" Long's statement that
his representative. Asst. Dean ' Larry McDevitt, was on the
scene of the incident Friday within five minutes after Gardner
called Long's office.
Gardner said in an interview yesterday that he called Long's
office within five minutes after the alleged incident, after first
notifying the Chapel Hill Police Department.
Long sent McDevitt to the scene. "I was at fraternity court
within three minutes,' McDevitt said. "The police were already
here and I spent about the next 30 minutes interviewing by
standers. So far we have found no witnesses to the incident."
"Unfortunate," Says Sharp
Chancellor Paul F. Sharp said, "This is one of those alleged
incidents which, if true, is unfortunate but only an incident.
If this event did occur, it in no way reflects the spirit of this
campus or its students."
Student Body President Bob Spearman has apologized to
the African student in behalf of UNC students and says, "I have
instructed the attorney general to investigate the incident and
to determine whether any violations of the Campus Code have
taken place. Any alleged offenders will be dealt with through
the normal student judicial processes."
Dean Long said he has also given verbal and written apolo
gies to Hage and Gardner.

PREMIER ALEXEI N. KOSYGIN hustled into secret talks
with Communist Party Boss Leonid L. Brezhnev in Moscow
Monday, minutes after returning from wartorn Viet Nam and
consultations with Chinese leaders in Peking.
Kosygin's 11-day trip through North Viet Nam, Red China
and North Korea is expected to play a key role, in shaping So
viet policy on Viet Nam. Soviet leaders did not even wait to
get back to the Kremlin to talk about it. After greeting airport
welcomers, Kosygin rushed into a private session with Brez

Mrs. Brezhnev, Mrs. Kosygin, Defense Minister Rodion Y.
Malinovsky and other Soviet military men, and diplomats from
Communist China, North Viet Nam and North Korea, cooled
their heels outside.
After the hurried talks Brezhnev and Kosygin drove into
Moscow in separate cars. There were no statements at the air
port. Kosygin, who was in Hanoi during two American raids on
other parts of North Viet Nam last week, promised the North
Vietnamese Soviet military aid. It was his first crack at personal
diplomacy in Asia since he succeeded Nikita Khrushchev as
premier last October and he found himself personally involved
in the "Viet Nam crisis.
