If you're bored and looking for something to do
you might try entertaining yourself by looking over
the scribblings found on desk-tops in the classrooms
of our university as Art Latham did the other day.
He found the traditional obscenities and the ubi
quitous "Carolina, UNC," various and sundry Greek
letters and "dedicated to the unfortunate souls who
died waiting for the bell in Monkey wrench apprecia
tion 101 scratched on the ageless desktops.
But as he went on he observed that the recent
unrest at Berkeley and other places have focused the
attention of desk-top scratching on political and so
cial change.
The desk-tops produced the following graphite
gems:
Beware the Rising Tide of Conformity.
The Great Society: Ever had the feeling that
somebody was putting you on?
Johnson is a fat, ugly bear. LB J is a socialist.
LB J is a warmonger. (Some days you just can't
please anybody.)
From the left side of the desks came:
White man listen.
No political compromise. Down with the Speaker
Ban. Down with the Britt Commission.
And from the right side:
War, war and more war (scrawled in boldface
caps across the entire face of one desk).
The hopeful suggestion Nixon in '68.
Then there were two real classics:
Down with Chapel Hill nuns, to hell with liberals,
pinkos, civil rights workers, Catholics, Reds, per
verts and South Building, to which someone had added:
and bigots.
But neatly printed on one desk is the refutation of
all the arguments that contemporary students are too
serious. "Budweiser Breakfast of Champions.
Santa Trades Beard For Bandages
The Pi Kappa Phi house had a red-hot Santa
Claus at their Christmas party Saturday night in the
form of Junior Class vice president Bill Nucciarone.
Nucciarone broke tradition and put aside Santa's
pipe for a cigar.
A few ashes dropped into Nucciarone's flowing
white beard turning it flaming red.
Santa's quick thinking brothers tossed the
fiery beard to the floor (minus Nucciarone of course).
Santa came out with a few minor burns and now
his beard has been replaced with white bandages.
Painful? Probably, but Nucciarone says he was
feeling no pain. Carol Gallent

Georgia Congressman Char

on the people of North Carolina
and the South to cease their
support of the Ku Klux Klan
and "organizations that drive
our people apart," in a speech
before 1,700 students in Me
morial Hall.
Weltner, a liberal Democrat
from Atlanta, Ga., is the mem-

For Contempt
Officials of the Ku Klux
Klan who withhold Klan rec
ords from congressional in
vestigators may be cited for
contempt of Congress, accord
ing to Georgia Congressman
Charles L. Weltner.
Weltner, a member of the
House Un - American Activi
ties Committee, said the possi
bility of citing uncooperative
Klan officials for contempt
was "under active considera
tion" by Congress in a press
conference here yesterday.
Weltner spoke on Klan ac
tivities in an address to the
student body last night in Me
morial Hall.
The liberal U. S. Represen
tative from Atlanta, Ga., said
congressmen were also consid
ering strengthening federal
statutes against conspiracy to
include Klan activities.
Information concerning the
possession of firearms by
Klansmen has been turned ov-
er
to congressional commit-
tees investigating firearms con
trol, according to Weltner.
Denouncing the Klan as "a
terror organization" which was
"structured along the lines of
the Communist Party" Welt
ner said HUAC would continue
its investigation of Klan acti
vities in the next session of
Congress.
"We will continue our in
vestigation to include the ac
tivities of the Klan in Alabama,
Mississippi, Tennessee, Flori
da and Louisiana," Weltner
said.
He said there were 117 Klan
claverns in North Carolina.
Weltner defended HUAC
from critics who claim the
committee is overstepping its
authority in current investiga
tions. Citing HUAC's 30 year his
tory, he said, "The commit
tee is not overstepping its
bounds in its investigation of
the Klan."
Weltner said HUAC is "cer
tainly not contemplating" an
investigation of the civil rights
movement in the near future.
He also said "an agency of
the federal government" had
warned him on two occasions
that Klan members might ha
rass him during his speech
last night, but he said he was
"happy to be here."
Weltner said he had receiv
ed no harassment in the past
for his role in the HUAC in
vestigation of the Klan, but
"that he had received a few
threatening letters. JOHN

Best Bargain Still
Old Victory Village

Special to the DTH
Not only will UNC married
student housing rents remain
steady, but by this summer. 50

says.
Wadsworth blames higher
taxes and increased dormitory
rents as the cause of the cur
rent rent increases by many
of the commercial develop
ments in Chapel Hill. Com
parable housing to that now
available in the new Odum
Village (which rents for $72
to $82), costs $85 to $150 per
month elsewhere. The old pre
fabs in Victory Village are
still the best bargain with
rents from $20 to $40.
Even with its low rents, Vic
tory Village grosses about $98,
500.00 per year reports James
A. Branch, UNC business man
ager. The cost of mainten
ance are reverted a separate
reserve fund. Odum Village
rents are set according to the
federal government's debt re
payment schedule.
The University Trustees have
allotted all of the land in
Victory Village for long range
expansion of the hospital com
plex. Bids will be let on
January 10, 1966 for the first
nine million dollar stage of
the expansion. As soon as this
building begins Victory Village

ner said, "The time has come
to sever the long chain of ter
rorism which was bequn in
1865."
Young defended Klansmen
as members of a "mocked,
expointed. deprived white ghet
to." He claimed the First Amend
ment rights of the Klansmen
had been deprived by the re
cent HUAC investigation.
He praised Klansmen as
the "leaders" of the "white
ghetto," who were investigat
ed a "federal secret police
apparatus of paid informers.
"This investigating unit can
turn against any group,"
Young said.
"Who will it be the next
time, Mr. Weltner," he asked.
"Will it be the Black Muslims,
whose mosque in Los Angeles
was riddled by police bullets,
or mayDe even the Congress
of the United States.
"There are now 204 regular
Klan units and 70 women's
auxiliaries active in 'variety

"Klansmen ask, 'How come
there's so much action for nig
gers and none for us," he
said.
He called on Weltner and
the audience to answer a "mes

white ghetto."
"Problems are not solved by
figuring out tricky things to

Presently, ' the University
provides about 250 units in
Victory Village and 300 units
in Odum Village for a mar
ried student population of ap
proximately 2200. Both Wads
worth and Branch expressed
hope that at least this many
units would continued to be
provided.
Branch stated that the Uni
versity hopes to include plans
for additional permanent mar
ried student housing in t h e
capital improvements budget
for the 1967 General Assem
bly. While the state supplies
no money for housing, it muit
authorize plans for building
housing. The federal govern
ment will loan money for such
self - liquidating projects.
Branch added "That with
with the present cost of build
ing, housing comparable to
Odum Village could not be
built and rented at the same
figure."
The present community cen
ter, which also houses the Day
Care Center for children, is
considered part of Odum Vil
lage and therefore will not be
replaced by hospital expan
sion. The new community cen
ter for married students is now
in the planning stages and is
expected to be placed near the
present playground area.
The purpose of the grant is
to help in developing stand
ards acceptable to all librar
ies. The money will be used
to tackle such problems as
the classification of books, in
dexing, layout of periodicals,
abstracts, and bibliographic
references.
Law Librarianship
The School of Library Scien
ces of UNC will offer a course
in librarianship in the first
term of the 1966 summer ses
sion, June 9 - July 16.
The course is intended for
those who are preparing for
careers as law librarians and
for others who may be now
working in law libraries.
The course will carry three
semester hours' credit.
Enrollment for the course
will be limited, and applica
tions to register for it must
be submitted by May 1, 1966.
Applications and further in
formation may be obrained
from Miss Jean Freeman, as
