El
New Red Offensive Seen Near
SAIGON U.S. Marines battling street to street recaptured
provincial headquarters in the heart of Hue Tuesday, hauled
down the North Vietnamese flag and raised the Stars and Stripes
atop the building. In Saigon allied troops fought Communist
forces with tanks and planes and more Viet Cong troops were
reported entering the capital from the south.
In the northwest Communist gunners fired heavy rocket,
artillery and mortar attacks 'against the besieged U.S. Marine
post of Khe Sanh, surrounded by at least 16,000 North Vietnamese
troops believed poised for an offensive.
U.S. spokesmen disclosed that about 12,000 troops of the U.S.
1st Air Cavalry Division and the llOst Airborne Division had been
moved north to the Demilitarized Zone area where they had kill
ed 627 North Vietnamese in two weeks of furibusghting.
The air cavalrymen and paratroopers were poised for an even
larger invasion from North Vietnam that U.S. officials believed
will follow in the wake of the unprecedented wave of Communist
attacks thalt have left 21,330 Communists dead during the past
week more than the total American combat deaths for the whole
war.
LBJ Asks Consumer Protection V':
WASHINGTON President Johnson asked Congress Tuesday
to protect American consumers from '"unsatisfactory" auto in
surance, "meaningless" guarantees, dangerous recreational
boats and uninspected poultry and fish.
He proposed six bills to help "assure every American con
sumer a fair and honest exchange for his hard-earned dollar",
that also would cover four other common marketplace hazards.
"A hundred years ago, consumer protection was largely un
necessary, the President said in a special message. "If the buyer
had a complaint he went straight to the miller, the blacksmith,
the tailor, the corner grocer. It was easy to tell the excellent
from the inferior."
But today he said, "It is the government's role to protect the
consumer and the honest businessman alike against fraud and
indifference."
No Korean Agreement Reached
SEOUL A South Korean 'government official said Tuesday
the United States and North Korea havd ifailed to reach any agree
ment on the return of the USS Pueblo fcnd its crew of 83( men.
He said the first meeting was 'held last Friday at the United
States' request. The second took place Sunday, this time at the
North Korean's request. The third was held Monday, the official
said. He denied reports that a fourth meeting was held Tues
day. The official said there had been no agreement between the two
sides at any of the meetings. His report further dispelled the flur
ry of rumors and speculations that North Korea had agreed to
return the dead and wounded Americans and that the rest of the
crew would be freed through a neutral country.
U.S. officials in Washington had earlier disclaimed such
reports.
N.C. Integration 'Slow But Steady9
RALEIGH The process of desegregation in North Carolina
colleges and universities continues to be "slow but steady," the
board of higher education said Tuesday.
"In the fall of 1967, nearly 1,700 Negro students enrolled in
predominantly white Colleges and universities in North Carolina,"
the board said in its February newsletter. "The percentage of
Negro students in predominantly white colleges and universities
increased from 0.4 per cent in 1963 to 1.6 per cent in 1967," the
board said.
"Obviously, desegregation in higher education in North
Carolina is slow," the board said. 'This is clear from the facts
which indicate that about two per cent of the total enrollment in
predominantly white institutions are negro students and about
one per cent of the total enrollment in predominantly Negro
institutions are white students."
The board said it would be fair to say, however, that "opr
portunities for higher education are increasingly being made
. available in North Carolina to all students without regard to
race. . . "
U.S. Destroyer Runs Aground
RHODES, Greece The USS Bache, a Sixth Fleet destroyer
ran aground and was being abandoned Tuesday night after strong
winds and choppy seas broke her anchor chain outside the port of
Rhodes.
Witnesses said the Bache seemed to be cracking up on the
rocks near the Rhodes Yacht Club and that the crew had been
ordered to abandon ship. l
They said the crewmembers were climbing off the ship wear
ing life jackets and were being picked up by small boats that
rushed to the area.
There was no immediate indication whether there were any
casualties.
system of selection and selec
tive objection to a particular
war.
Lipsitz and Adams differed
most sharply on the NSA
measure calling for selective
objection (receiving a defer
ment for a particular war) on
philosophical ' or moral
grounds.
"Historically, an individual
has had a responsibility to
authority of his government
and his awn judgment can not
countervene with the judgment
of governmental authority,"

Adams said. This country has
recognized the higher authority
of a diety as institutionalized
by the structure of a church in
granting CO. status, he said.
Lipsitz said the draft "is
totally different from anything
else our government asks us to
do. We are risking being killed
or killing someone else for an
issue the individual perhaps
isn't too enthused about."
He said the decision to go or '
not to go to war involves "a
deep moral choice either way"
and that an individual should
decide for himself if he can
agree with that government's
policy.
"All governments do immo
, ral things, and certainly all
important governments do
them regularly," Lipsitz said.
"1 believe that's what the
Nuremberg Trials were all
about."
He said the institution of
selective objection would pro
vide - a check on the"
government's "arbitrary
decisions". He said Johnson
was elected primarily as an
anti-escalation candidate in
1964 "and what could the peo
ple of this country have done in
tl. ist four years about
hat' being done in Viet
nam? "Nothing," Lipsitz said.
The NSA also passed a
resolution declaring that . the
Congress has the right to draft
only in times of national
emergency : and only for the
duration of a declared war.
"This is a horse and buggy
kind of proposal," Dr. Adams
said, "which might have been
"meaningful vin the 19th century.
It is totally .unrealistic in
today's world to think we won't
recruit forces until war is
declared.
Lipsitz agreed with Adams
on the necessity of the draft,
,, adding that a widespread lot
tery system ''wouM be th
most equitable system" that
has yet been suggested.
lipsitz said a volunteer
army, as suggested by the NSA
resolution "would not be
equitable because it would ap
peal to the lower classes "and
would not provide a check on
the administration's authori
ty. "Doing away with student
deferments and the drafting
more and more middle class
citizens . would put a
psychological check on the
government, even if a small
one," Lipsitz said.
Lipsitz said the middle class
"has more power, more
money, more friends on the
draft 'board and more of
everything that is influential
politically," and that "it wasn't
surprising that President
Johnson and the administration
weren't interested in abolishing

part in the Carolina Talent
Search should fill out ap
plications at the G.M. Informa-

t
tion Desk Feb. 7-19, according
to director Phil Clay.
The Carolina Talent Search
aims to provide information
about UNC to persons outside
the normal recruiting network
of the University, especially to
underprivileged students in
North Carolina high schools.
Members of the Talent
Search will be expected to
travel to North Carolina high
schools in February and March
to tell students about
Carolina.
-"In the i last six weeks, we
have sent letters to 400 high
school students in North
Carolina," said Clay. "We told
them about the program at
UNC, and have gotten a good
response."
The program is not aimed
solely a t underprivileged
students. Clay said that a fall
trip to prep schools in New
England had, raised much in
terest about coming to
Carolina among students
there. "
There are no specific
qualifications for members of
the program, said Clay.
"Prospective members
should be willing to travel on
weekdays and be able to com
municate to small groups of
people."
Clay is looking for a cross-,
section. of mera
b e r s ' f r aternity men,
freshmen, athletes, anyone
who is interested and willing to
work."
The Talent Search will - be
preparing, a manual for high
school guidance counselors, to
be published in April.
The manual will tell
counselors how to identify
those students who are outside
1 b e University's recruiting
range and how to encourage
tim to take advantage of
higher education.
Clay said the group will be
working to find a way to get
the program permanently
established in circles of higher,
education in the state.
'"Students who have been
working with the program
already have reported that this
was a good opportunity for

Clay. "You see problems you

Photo Lab's
1600 Mugs
The UNC Photo Lab is
faced with a mystery
which would baffle even
Sherlock Holmes: The
Case of the Missing ID
Pictures.
A roll of film containing
1,600 student mugshots has
been lost in the mail
somewhere between here
and New Haven, Comm.
According to Ross
Scroggs, director of the
Photo Lab, the films were
mailed out on December
14. They haven't been
heard from since.
There has been some
speculation that the films
perished in the Morgan
Street Post Office fire on
December 15, but
authorities here and in
Raleigh feel that the chan
ces are slim that the film
was at that station.
Scroggs also said that
the students whose pic
tures were on the roll had
temporary IDs which ex
pired Jan. 2. He advised
them to come to the Photo
Lab to have their pictures
retaken.
Missing
Tar Heels Take
13th Straigh
By LARRY KEITH
of The Daily Tar Heel Staff
It may not have looked like
much during the first three
minutes and 52 seconds, but
after that it was all North
Carolina as the Tar Heels put
on a devastating 108-64 basket
ball show at Carmichael Audi
torium Tuesday night. '
The visiting Virginia Cava
liers watched and wept.
And after it was all over
their coach Bill Gibson called
this the "greatest" Carolina
team he has ever seen.
The accolade is just when
based on the manner in which
the Tar Heels handled every
department rebounding, de
fense and offense. The fast
break was awsome.
For North Carolina it was the
13th straight victory, equalling
a string set in 1961. The Tar
Heels overall record is now
15-1 and their Atlantic Coast
Conference leading mark is 6-0.
Virginia, which had played
two good games last week in
defeating Navy and losing a
close contest to Duke, never
knew what happened. Now 6-12
and 3-6, the Cavaliers opened
an early 12-6 lead before Caro
lina switched on its fast break
attack and shot little but lay
ups the rest of the evening.
The Tar Heels erased the
Cavaliers' early 12-6 advant
age that was posted with 16:18
to go with three straight bas
kets by Charlie Scott, Rusty
Clark and Larry Miller.
. A.Mike Katos bucket let Vir
ginia have the lead one more
- time at-14-12 before Carolina
went ahead for good. Clark's
connection with 12:34 left was
the stopper.
Carolina's biggest scoring
spurts of the first ' half lifted
the score from 6-12 to 21-14 and
from 27-22 to 42-22.
The second 15-point streak
came in four fast paced min
y utes and broke the game open
for good.

Orientation Program
Drop-Add Course
Planned
By MIKE MC GOWAN
and WYLENE COM
MANDER of The Daily Tar Heel Staff
Although Drop-Add 1 may
not appear as a freshman elec
tive in next year's catalogue,
it's part of a voluntary, four
Week course the Orientation
Commission is planning for
fall.
The course, to be taught in
groups of no larger than 25
students, is intended to help an
incoming freshman or transfer
student to adjust to the new
environment at Carolina.
However, the course would
not concern itself only with the
practicalities of campus life.
It would also initiate
discussions about the concept
of a modern university, the
theory of thought behind at
tending a university and
responsibilities 'of the student
in an academic community.
Presently, the orientation
commission is seeking support
for the new plan from the
faculty. According to Joe
Ritok, men's coordinator of the
commission, the faculty sup
port is needed so there'll be so
meone to teach the course.

The 44-point victory margin

beat Clemson. 115-83.
Scott and Clark shared high

Bill Bunting played his second

The Cavaliers, who lost early
in the season to Duke 103-61

Carolina's biggest lead of the
night was 49 points. It came

score 88-39. The two other 49

Another, substitute, Ralph
Fletcher, put the team over the

missed shot by Brown with1
3:11 remaining to up the mar
gin to 100-56.
Carolina hit 51 per cent of its
attempts but only six of 14
from the line. Virginia made
26 of 71 per cent and was

"The present set-up is too
