Asst. Sports Editor
After closing out the regular season with seven straight
victories, the Tar Heels tonight begin their quest of their first
ACC Tournament Championship since 1957.
But standing in the way tonight will be Wake Forest (11-14)
which for five consecutive years has reached the finals.
The Deacons are fighting the same type of slump that the
Tar Heels experienced at the end of last year, having lost six
of their last eight games, but there is an adage in Winston
Salcm that Bones McKinney always reaches the finals, and they
will be out to prove it. The game will start at 9 p.m.
UNC lost seven of its last eight games in 1964, but rebounded
against South Carolina in the tourney opener before losing to

The Di-Phi Senate unanimously
voted to condemn the Speaker
Ban Law after a special debate
during inauguration ceremonies
This was the second such action
which the Di-Phi has taken against
the Speaker Ban in two years.
A resolution calling for a test
case, to be sponsored by the Sen
ate, which would point out the
"ambiguities in the law" was in
troduced in Tuesday's session,
and will be discussed and voted
on at the next session.
During the debate. Will Bullard
pointed out that three speakers
in the assembly had broken the
Gag Law by publicly advocat
ing the overthrow of a section of
the North Carolina Constitution.
Want Secticn Stricken
All three had admitted during
a questioning period that they
would like to see stricken the
section of the constitution which
forbids inter-racial marriage.
"I know of at least one Marxist-Leninist
who has been active
on this campus who is not pre
vented from speaking by the law,"
Bullard said. "He has never plead
ed the Fifth Amendment, is not
a member of the Communist
Party, and has ' never publicly
called for the overthrow of our
government," he said.
"You will find that most Marx
ists are not covered by this law."
Bullard cited the "detrimental
effect" which the law has had on
the University, including the re
fusal of several . distinguished
scientists to speak here and re
fusal by international physics and
' chemistry conferences to hold ses
"More Harm Than Good"
David Wilborn told the body that
the bill was against all democrat
ic precepts as defined by Ameri
ca's founders, and said it would
. do more harm than good.
"If we cannot refute the ideas
which a communist would present
us with, then we will be rendered
unable to truely supress commu
nism," he said.
Chuck Neely attacked the State
-Legislature for not using legis
lative restraint in the bill's pass
age. "This . bill was rammed
through the State Legislature,"
"If you pass laws against the
speaking privileges of Commu
nists, then you can do the same
against those of facists," he said.
"Soon it may , get to the point
when Republicans won't be allow-

"The United , States congress is
currently composed of a democrat
majority so strong that they could
deny the speaking privileges of

When Mariam Makeba sang "Where Shall I Go," a folksong
of her native South Africa, it had a special significance.
Miss Makeba was banned from returning to the country of
her birth for her outspoken views on South African affairs. Any
criticism of the government is illegal there.
Since the Union of South Africa was granted independence
from the British Commonwealth, the government has been domi
nated by white descendants of original Dutch settlers.
The native tribes have no representation even though they
comprise 90 per cent of the population. They are not allowed
Laws have been passed confining them to certain areas of
the country and they must carry passports to travel from one
section to another.
Plight of the People
At a reception after Tuesday night's performance here, she
talked in a soft whispering voice of the plight of her people.
"We people of South Africa have no friends. The U.N. has
passed resolutions for economic boycotts of our country but no
one has followed it. Fifty per cent of the world's gold and 75
per cent of the world's diamonds are still coming out of South
Africa. The Western countries are our allies but until they

Tar Heels out in the semifinals 56-55.
UNC Coach Dean Smith said he has been pleased with the
steady improvement of the team recently Although he points
to Duke as the favorite, he realizes that a lot of people think
Carolina is going to win. '
Probably the biggest reason for this is Billy Cunningham. In

American Investment Vital
She cited American investment as especially important in
sustaining the government. "Even Coca-Cola now has a large
plant in South Africa."
"When we're under, no one cares. When the Afrikaaners (as
the whites are called) are killing my people, no one cares. But
as soon as we resort to violence against the undemocratic forms
of our government, we are labeled black savages."
She referred to the Sharpeville massacre in 1960 in which
government troops shot men, women and children in an effort
lo quell a possible riot.
Since then, a ban has been imposed on arms shipments to
supply the government but apparently the move came too late
as South Africa now has its own arsenal to support its troops.
Particularly offensive to the natives, she said, is the so
called "90-Day Law" which permits the government to imprison
anyone for 90 days without trial or having to show cause.
"My brother is in jail now, under, the 90-day detention.

Mai Graham shows him to be one of the most tenacious defen
sive backcourtmen in the ACC. In addition to his defensive
work he hit for 17 points against Clemson, 10 against NYU and
nine against both Virginia and Duke.
The Deacons will try to stop Bob Lewis, who scored 33
against them in Chapel HilL Voted to the second All-ACC team,
the 6-3 sophomore is averaging 20.8 points and 8.1 rebounds
Joining Lewis in the frontcourt will be Ray Respess, who
burst out of a mid-season slump and has become one of the top
clutch players on the team, while defensive ace Tom Gauntlett
will be at the other guard position.
Despite first team all-star and a second teamer the Deacons
have been floundering. Bob Leonard, the conference's top guard,
and Ronnie Watts have both played well but the rest of the
team has been erratic.
Guard John Anderson has started for most of the season.
McKinney had a good starting forecourt for half the season in
sophomore Jim Boshart and Richard Herring, but they have
been cold in the second half and reserves Jim Altengartcn and
Clark Pool, averaging 3.9 and 3.0 points a game, have started.
They slaughtered UNC 107-85 in Winston-Salem and with
McKinney's tournament record the Tar Heels cannot be look
ing ahead to the winner of the Duke-South Carolina game.
But some consolation for having to play Wake in the open
ing round is that the three times the top-seeded team hasn't
won the fourth-seeded club took all the marbles.
Late News Briefs
From DTH Associated Press Wires
THE HOUSE PASSED and sent to President Johnson yes
terday his $l.l-billion program of aid for highways and other
projects designed to improve job opportunities and income in
the economically depressed Appalachia area.
This first major legislation to be passed by this session of
Congress was approved by a 257-165 roll call of the House,
which last year let a similar bill die.
Repeated Republican attempts to slice off parts of the pro
gram or add more areas were beaten off in two days of debate
and the bill was approved in exactly the form the Senate passed
it Feb. 1. Sixteen amendments offered were rejected overwhelm
ingly, most by voice vote.
Voting for the bill were 232 Democrats and 25 Republicans.
Voting against it were 56 Democrats and 109 Republicans.
The proposal was the product of study begun by President
John F. Kennedy shortly after he took office in 1961. He had
been impressed by the economic plight of West Virginia dur
ing his presidential campaign. Johnson adopted the idea and
pushed it vigorously.
The bill, which now requires only Johnson's signature to
become law, authorizes a five-year program of aid for 360
counties in 11 states extending from northern Pennsylvania to
northern Alabama. They include all of West Virginia and parts
of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Provision is made for possible addition of 13 New York
Funds necessary to put the program into effect must be
provided by separate legislation.

Wednesday on a three-mile march to bury a Negro laborer whom
King had described as "a martyr in the crusade for human dig

ices, the first at nearby Selma, for 26-year-old Jimmie Lee Jack
son who was wounded fatally by gunfire when police and state
troopers broke up a Negro march here Feb. 18.
A misty rain was falling during the services in the red brick
Zion Methodist church facing the courthouse square in this
small West Alabama town.
A few white spectators watched from the porch of the small
city hall, across the intersection from the church. A few city
policemen were on hand but there was no trouble as hundred,
of Negroes who could not get inside the building massed in
front of the church and sang "freedom songs." Inside, the old
wooden pews were jammed and the aisles packed.
REP. PAUL R. ROBERSON of Martin said Wednesday he
was "perfectly serious" about a measure to keep "neckers" olf
North Carolina highways.
Roberson said a lot of people "smile and brush it ofT" when
his bill is mentioned. He said without a smile "a lot of our vio
lations result" from highway necking.
The measure would make it a misdemeanor punishable by a
fine of $50 or thirty days in jail to steer or operate a motor ve
hicle on a public road while embracing a companion or while
the operator's arm is resting on the seat behind or around a
Roberson said the bill was a highway safety measure aimed
not especially at teenagers, but at persons "who think they're
grown 25 to 35."
If couples are bent on necking, Roberson said, they should
get off the highways.
A BILL, TO repeal the provision for life imprisonment upon
recommendation of the jury in capital cases was introduced
Wednesday by State Sen. Tom Wrhite of Lenoir.
The measure would affect the sentencing of those found
guilty of first degree murder, arson, rape and first degree bur
glary North Carolina's four capital crimes.
Under a 1949 law, a jury's, recommendation of life imprison
ment is binding in cases where the death penalty is otherwise
mandatory. Under White's bill, the sentence would be a sen
tence of death upon conviction in all capital cases.
