'The. Mind of the South" will be
featured at the 1972 Carolina Symposium
to be held next spring. Ideas for the
symposium as well as people who wish to
work with it are being sought by
co-chairmen George Butler and Claiborne
The two-week long look into the
peculiar aspects of the South will focus
on cultural, political and social
characteristics of this region.
The Carolina Symposium alternates
yearly with the Fine Arts Festival. The
last symposium in 1969 brought Sen.
Edmund Muskie . (D-Me.) and former
" Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall to
the campus in a discussion of "Man and
His Environment." ,
"We hope to involve North Carolina as
a state," said Butler. "We would like to
receive input from all areas and citizens in
the state, from blacks and whites and
high school students as well."

The proposals are:
To establish a committee to study

-To require that the corporation
disclose in its annual report the exact
extent and nature of its charitable
To enlarge the board of directors of
the corporation, to give the power to

"The seminar will discuss ,race
problems, drugs in high schools and other
problems from the students' viewpoint,"
A similar seminar will bring state
college students together in a discussion
of cultural aspects of the South.
The symposium is divided into two
segments of a week each. The first will
emphasize the cultural aspects of the
South, including music, literature and the
Films about the South will be shown,
followed by commentary by UNC faculty

presented on film to the nation," said
Miss Jones. "It will be an objective

The signing of the People's Peace
Treaty, a civilian pact to end the Vietnam
War, will be celebrated on campus today.
The all-day celebration, sponsored by
the People's Peace Coalition, will include
nationally-known speakers, a debate, a
march, workshops, films, entertainment
and a street dance tonight in the
Rosemary Street Parking Lot.
A complete schedule of events will be
available at any of three "polling booths"
located in the Pit, in McCorkle and in
front of the Post Office downtown.

The Chapel Hill Board of Aldermen
granted permission Monday to the
People's Peace Coalition to hold a street
dance tonight in the Rosemary Street
The aldermen said the Peace Coalition
could hold the dance from 8 to 10 p.m.
- The coalition, a Chapel Hill group
organizing for the People's Peace Treaty
and the national demonstrations
scheduled for April and May in
Washington, had petitioned the aldermen
for permission to hold the dance from 8
to 11 p.m. on Henderson Street, between
Franklin and Rosemary streets.
The city is considering construction on
Henderson Street and wishes to restrict
night-time activity on the street until
construction plans are completed,
according to Andy Little, assistant to
Mayor Howard Lee.
'There were many different reasons
given by the Aldermen for preferring the
parking lot," Little said, "but the main
thing was the plan for construction on

modify the street to' have two lanes of

Marijuana smoke tar effects are
identical to tobacco (a skin carcinogen) in
the mouse, a UNC pharmacologist
reported Tuesday afternoon in Chicago.
"Our research with mice indicated
marijuana condensate shares toxicologic
properties identical with tobacco when
compared at the same concentrations.
"While our. findings suggest that
marijuana tar may have cancer producing
activity, they do not show that marijuana
smoking causes cancer in man," Dr.
Raymond Magus emphasized.
The sounds of the South from
Nashville, across the mountains and all
the way to New Orleans will also be a
part of the symposium.
"We'd like to see what role the blues
and southern spirituals played in shaping
the mind of the South," Butler said.
''Workshops on trends and themes will
also be included."
A new idea for the symposium is a
"multi-media" program to be enacted by.
'This will be about a 10-minute
program, either movies or slides, to
capture the essence of the theme," Miss
"It will be similar to a Charles
Kuralt-type documentary composite,"
A photography display will also be on
exhibit during the symposium.. Both
amateur photographers at UNC and
nationally known photographers will
show scenes from the South.
The second week will focus on the
political, social and economic aspects of
the South. . Groups helping to develop
these aspects will be departments at UNC,
Washington, D.C, will speak this morning
on activities planned for the April 24
march on the nation's capital and the
massive civil disobedience planned for
May 2-7 if the Government does not end
the war by May 1 .
Doug Hostetter, a coordinator of the
People's Peace Treaty, will debate state
Young Americans for Freedom chairman
David Adcock at 2 p.m. in G errand Hall.
The topic of the debate will be the treaty
itself and the war in Indochina.
Hostetter spent three years in
Viettnam, from 1966 through 1969, as a
civilian English teacher for his
conscientious objector's alternate service.
Also scheduled to speak is Jack
Mallory, a Vietnam veteran who is against
the war, who will talk about war crimes
traffic with no parking and build a seating
area and mall along the side of the street.
Skip McGaughey, an organizer of the
coalition, said, "We appreciate the
opportunity to hold the street dance in
the parking lot, but we sincerely regret
that we were not permitted longer hours
and the place most convenient for the
In their petition for the dance, the
coalition said Henderson Street would be

In Magus research, tobacco and
marijuana smoke condensates were

to the skin of mice.
The results showed that marijuana

from those of tobacco.

problems and economics will also be on
hand to discuss the South. 1 '
"We hope to bring into discussion
some of the problems and prospects the
South is facing," said Butler. "Maybe that,
way we can avoid some of the urban
problems other cities have had."
Education in the South will also be
viewed. "Discussions will probably center
on the trauma caused by integration and
the white and black reactions to it, and to
the need for curriculum reform," Butler
The two top presidential candidates
from each party will be invited to address
the future of the South and southern
development the week after the
symposium, according to Butler.
Scheduled workshops, which will be
held in various parts of McCorkle Place,
include first aid, ECOS, draft counseling,
the May civil disobedience, Veterans

planned to symbolize that "the war is
coming to an end and the soldiers are
going home," will begin at 7 p.m. in front
The march will make its way through
campus in a route drawn out to follow
roughly that of Indochina's Ho Chi Minh
Organizers of the celebration say they
have planned two rest stops along the
route where marchers "will smoke the
people's peace pipe."
The second rest stop will be in the
Arboretum, which will be renamed 'The
People's Victory Garden."
The march will end at Silent Sam in
McCorkle Place, and the street dance in
the Rosemary Street parking , lot will
begin immediately after the march.
The dance from eight to 10 tonight
will mark the end of the day's
celebration, but, organizers say, not the
end to the spring offensive against the
'The object of the day," one
spokesman said, "is to discuss the merits
of the People's Peace Treaty and to get
people to sign it. That's the reason for the
celebration to celebrate that the end of
the war is coming because the people are
making the peace.
"This is the beginning of the spring
activities," he said, "and itH involve any
legitimate means possible to end the war
between now and May 1 . Between May 1
and May 7, if the war is not over, we plan
massive, forceful nonviolent civil
material. We can only say that there is a
potential hazard in man.-
"This uncertainty is compounded by
problems of species difference (human
lung is not mouse skin) and by , the
uncertainty that humans could consume
marijuana in concentrations great enough
to be harmful in the same sense that
tobacco is," Magus explained.
Working with Dr. Magus on his
research was Dr. Louis S. Harris.
. A member of the UNC faculty since
1968, he received both the bachelors and
masters of science at the University of
Alberta, Canada and. a Ph.D. at the
University of Iowa.
