Students 'Sell9 University
To Legislators And Public
A group of Carolina's student
leaders are hard at work selling
the University of North Carolina
to state legislators, civic leaders
and private citizens. In the pro
cess, they're accomplishing a lot
toward better understanding of
the institution and its problems.
Most of the task so far. has fal-;
len to the members of the State
Affairs Committee, chaired by Al
Sneed, a senior from Pinehurst.'
"Our purpose is education, pure
and simple," says Sneed. "A lot
of North Carolinians are not real
ly aware of what the University
is trying to do, or what its pro
blems are. Our job is to tell
The telling is often done face
"We've had a number of stu
dents make speeches to civic
clubs all over North Carolina this
year," Sneed says. "We've found
that people are eager to hear
about their University, and they
are especially impressed when a
student is willing to come and
talk about it.
"We deal with a lot of subjects
the increasing enrollment, the
budget, special projects under
taken by the University, and of
course some more controversial
topics, such as the Speaker Ban
Sneed's committee members
have also spent many hours in
conference with members of the
"Legislators are like everyone
else," Sneed says. "Many of them
need more information about our
problems and how students feel
"Take the Speaker Ban, for in
stance,' Sneed continued. "We
were a little skeptical about talk
ing to legislators at first, but
we've found them willing to lis
ten, for the most part. I don't
know how many opinions we will
change, but at least we are mak
ing our position known."
Sneed pointed out that his is
not the - only group campaigning
hard for the University. i
"Just last weekend,", he said,
"Hugh Stevens, Bob Spearman
and a group , of students repre
senting, the Greensboro and Ral
eigh campuses met with the Med
ford Committee, vhich is the
Board of Trustees's special com
mittee on the Speaker Ban. The
students gave their views on the
law, presented some petitions
supporting the Trustees' position,
and answered questions.

as to which issue is the most
difficult to deal with.
"The Speaker Ban is tough,"
he says, "because it is very, very
popular with the public. A lot of
people think that if you're against
the law, you're in favor of Com
munism. We're trying to convince
them that this is not the case."
In general, he thinks that the
University's public image is not

fault does not lie entirely with

A BILL to make Charlotte College a fourth branch of the
Consolidated University ran into a barrage of questions before
the House Higher Education Committee Thursday.
The questions came from Reps. A. A. Zollicoffer of Vance,
Paul J. Story of McDowell and Allen Barbee of Nash. They
indicated they had reservations about the cost of converting the
college into a university unit. Their questions delayed action
on the bill which the committee will consider again next Tuesday.
During the discussion, Dr. William C. Archie, director of
higher education, told the legislators that upwards of 25,000 North
Carolina young people will oe aeniea a chance to attend college
during the next few years unless something is done to meet the
"We've simply got to do something," Archie said. "We are
terribly behind and unless something is done we will be hope
Zollicoffer asked how much . it would cost to establish a
medical school and an engineering school on the new Charlotte
College campus. He said he understood people of Charlotte
President .William C. Friday of the Consolidated University,
a staunch backer of the bill, said he was unable to answer the
question. He added that "whether or not there will be a school
of medicine or a school of engineering will require extensive
study over a period of years."
Story asked if the new college would not require $50 million
worth of new facilities within a 10-year period. Friday said he
thought the figure was too high.
GOV. DAN MOORE said Thursday he would not recommend
any changes in the state's liquor laws to permit sale of whisky
by the drink and operation of a distillery.
He told a morning news conference North Carolina's ABC
laws, allowing liquor sales through package stores and forbidding
the manufacture of liquor, are working well.
The governor said he met with dry forces Wednesday and
told them "our present ABC system is working satisfactorily
arid that I would not recommend any changes that would take
away any of its authority."
A corporation is being formed by a Raleigh group to build
a distillery, if the 1937 Alcoholic Beverage Control Act is altered
to admit the distillation of whisky,
THE $300 MILLION road bond issue bill was approved Thurs
day by House and Senate Bonds committees, but Onslow County
lawmakers sounded the first cry of discontent.
The bill now goes to the general assembly's Finance Com
mittees where a fight could develop over how the highway funds
are divided. The bill was tightly drawn to show where every
penny of the $300 million goes. . Half the money would be spent
on primary roads. The " otherlSO million Would be" divided
equally between urban street and rural secondary road construc
SECRETARY OF DEFENSE Robert S. McNamara described
the Viet Nam crisis Thursday as "grave but by no means hope
less," arid expressed doubt the Red Chinese would step in with
a major attack.
Despite Peking's militancy, McNamara said in a report to
the House Armed Services Committee, the Red Chinese "have
shown great caution when confronted with a determined display
of military power." Both Peking and Moscow, he added, can
be expected to stir up as much trouble as they can "whenever
and wherever they can do so safely, without a 'head on' collision
with U. S. military power."
A MOB OF communist-inspired youths attacked the U. S.
consulate in Medan Thursday in the fifth such assault on official
American properties in Indonesia in the last six months. As in
the past, U. S. diplomats protested.
The outburst at Medan, a Sumatran trade and manufacturing
center 850 miles northwest of Jakarta, was accompanied by an
indication that President Sukarno's government intends to take
over supervision of U.S. -owned rubber estates in northern Sum
atra. About 700 demonstrators stormed the consulate grounds.

Reception of the John Birch Society among
Southern youth has been "excellent," according
to William Highsmith Jr. society district coor
dinator for the upper South. -
"We're getting more and more members ,
under 22," he said Wednesday night in an
interview after a talk to several hundred stu
dents in Graham Memorial lounge.
' "I'd guess about 40 per cent of our mem
bers (in this area) , are of . the college age
group," said Steve Conger, society coordinator
for Eastern North Carolina. '
Conger,' who accompanied Highsmith, esti
mated the average age of members in his area
as "about 36 or 37."
No Chapter Here
There is no society chapter here, he said,
but some Chapel Hill residents and students are
members. Conger said he knew of no move
ment to start a chapter here.
He said in 1963 he came to the University
to address a group he thought was interested
in joining the society. Instead of interested
members, "Larry Phelps and that crowd show
ed up." He called the meeting a "fiasco."
Conger said he considers UNC third among
United States universities in terms of "com
This is evidenced, he said, by the activities
of Phelps with the Progressive Labor Move
ment and the former editorial policy of the
Daily Tar Heel. In 1963, he charged, the DTH
"promoted much the same things as the Daily
He said there is "a great deal of commun
ist activity in North Carolina." However, he
pointed out, the society does not concern itself
with this activity on a state and local level.
Individual members may work against local
"communist activity," but each chapter gears
its. efforts toward national goals such as the
"Impeach Earl Warren campaign."
Conger said that the coordinated nationwide
campaigns are "more effective" than having
chapters work toward different local goals.
Highsmith loosed a vicious attack against
the Ku Klux Klan. He condemned it as a
'hate organization, a violent organization and
an . un-American organization."
"We are not interested in having them in
(the society) at all," he shouted.
He also attacked the Minutemen, a right
wing action group, saying the society does not
approve of their tactics. He called the moves
thev advocate "ridiculous."
He condemned other things., Among them
were Martin Luther King, the United Nations,
NATO and evil. . , .
Highsmith charged that King has 'been
responsible for more deaths on our streets than
any other man." He said King "has advanced
the communist program more than any other
