The ceremonies were held ii the Hall of the House of Representatives Monday night, January 15, at 8 o'clock, with Lieut.-Gov. L. Y. 3al lentine, president pro-tem of the Senate, and Representative Oscar Richardson, Speaker of the House, presiding jointly. Members of the General Assembly and as many guests as could be accommodated were present. The principal speakers were Gov ernor R. Gregg Cherry, President Clarence K. Dykstra of the Univer sity of Wisconsin, and President Frank P. Graham of the University of North Carolina. Victor S. Bryant of Durham, chairman of the Legislative Com mission on the Sesquicentennial, gave a brief address on the signific ance of the occasion, and Dean of Administration Robert B. House of the University at Chapel Hill, intro duced President Dykstra. Pointing out that the University of North Carolina was the first State university in the nation to open its doors to students, Governor Cherry, President Dykstra and President Graham stressed the point that the University is truly a child of v the American Revolution, for it was conceived in the year of Inde pendence and born with the founding of the Republic (1789). Up to that time, they said, educa tion had been for the privileged few. Almost every commonwealth has followed North Carolina's example with a State University and these in stitutions have been one of the na tion's most powerful forces in trans lating into action the concept of de mocracy enunciated in the Declara tion of 1776.

Under ODT regulations, operators do not have to have their certificates reissued unless they propose to change the character of their ser vices or the territories for which the present certificates were issued, ODT said.

No Treaty of Peace Will Satisfy Everybody Joseph C. dev., Under-Secietary of State, tells the people of the United States: that whatever erected, it i 1 body." This is an important observation if enough people believe it. Obviously, if no treaty 01 peace will satisfy everybody, no treaty of peace will satisfy the people of the United States one hundred per cent.

There have been numerous in stances of committees formed, under high-sounding titles, apparently of unselfish design, but representing nothing but propaganda which would lose its effectiveness if distributed by its sponsor.
