He went on to say in his dis
cussion of the educational impli

that "in North Carolina one of
six is illiterate, and the mean
level of education is two grades
below the national average.
"Children from deprised homes
start school already a year behind
children ' from the other side:- of
the - tracks."
He said the initial grants are to
evaluate the process by which
community agencies can work to
gether to plan and administer a
total program of self-help.
"North Carolina has one of the
largest percentages of illiterates,
but : also more people who want
to take advantage of the project,"
"Already 66 of 100 counties have
undertaken studies of their com
munities, and of these all have
been given grants for more com
prehensive study" Esser said.
Last year 100 volunteers worked
with the fund in various areas

"The number, of recruits is be

And what's good enough for Robert E. Lee is good
enough for the members of Kappa Alpha this week as
they grow beards and practice rebel yells in preparation
for their annual Old South Ball.
Every year since the 180's, members from six to eight KA
chapters have gathered for a weekend of reliving those glorious
days when every county had a big plantation and the odor of
jasmine and magnolia filled the air.
To assure reality and authenticity, prizes are offered for the
best beard and the best costume.
In a unprecedented departure from tradition, the local KA
chapter - has decided to secede from the ball this year and
and conduct one of their own at Atlantic Beach.
It's just a temporary arrangement, they say.
"Our chapters are located all in the South,'" brother Buddy
Copper said. "It's as if we extended the Mason-Dixon Line from
Maryland out to California." ,
A total of 90 persons will take their mint julip mix and Con
federate flags to the seaside.

"We were, founded in 1865."
"We've got Maurice and the Zodiacs, Little Chip and the
Fire Sparks and the Beetles," Cooper said.

"The recent faculty decision on
restrictive clauses in fraternities
and sororities stops just short of
being administrative tyranny,"
Rep. Armistead Maupin (UP) told
Student Legislature Thursday.
Maupin made the remarks to
the body after withdrawing from
consideration a resolution spon
sored by him and Clark Crampton
(UP) which reaffirms "the right
of private social organizations to
determine their own criteria for
membership without outside coer
cion." He referred to the Faculty Com
mittee on Sororities and Fraterni
ties' decision to give University
chartered socal organizations until
September 1966 to get rid of dis
criminatory clauses in their by
laws or constitutions.
In its decision, the committee
defined discriminatory require
ments as those "which prohibit the
local chapter from pledging or
initiating any student in the Uni
versity because of his or her
race, creed or national origin."
Maupin quoted committee chair
man Dr. Herbert Bodman's state
ments about clauses limiting mem
bership to some organizations to
individuals "socially acceptable to
Bodman said the committee
would have no rule on the intent
of the clause in each case. If the
. clause was being used to discrimi-
" nate on the basis of race, "creed
or national origin, then it would be
"How would you be able to
prove whether or not 'socially ac
ceptable clauses are used to dis
criminate," Maupin asked.
"It strikes me as just a little
bit ironical that the people who
do the most ranting about aca
demic freedom are the first to
use threats and coercion against
private social organizations at the
University," Maupin said.
"It strikes me as just a little
ironical that the people who do
the most talking about local auto
nomy are the first to applaud
when that autonomy is crushed
under the heel of a dictating body.
'The greatest myth surrounding
the decision of the faculty commti
tee," Maupin said, "is that the
committee has strengthened the
local autonomy of the organiza
'That is nowhere close to the
truth. The committee has
driven its wedge into both the
nationals and the locals.
"I am a little tired," he said,
"of hearing the word 'freedom'
tossed about by people who con
strue that word to be the right
to compel others to accept their
own sociological values.
"The other day, the Daily Tar
Heel gave the impression that
student government's reaction to
the new policy was highly favor
able," he said.
"If only to keep from making
it unanimous," Maupin said, "I
would like to express my distaste

A bill introduced by Tom Can
non (UP) calling for the removal
