North Carolina
Schooi Vexed
By Negro Case
Receipt of a New York Negro's ap-
plication for admission to the Univer-
sity of North Carolina graduate school
has precipitated an unprecedented
situation on the southern school's
campus.
While university officials refused to
make definite statements, student
leaders voted against the admission
of Negroes. In the graduate school,
however, a survey conducted by the
Daily Tar Heel, college newspaper,
indicated that a majority favored the
termination of the Southern tradi-
tion of racial segregation in educa-
tion.
Further reports were made to the
effct that eight Negroes, residents of
North Carolina, will seek entrance
into the university on the grounds
that Negro schools do not provide
equal facilities.
North Carolina's student senate
went on record yesterday as opposing
the admission of Negroes to the
university, but favored the enlarge-
ment of facilities for Negro profes-
sional schools in the state. Student
senators were of the opinion that if
a Negro were admitted, his life at the
university would be made miserable.
Approximately one out of every four
students participated in last Friday's
Daily Tar Heel poll as a more than
two to one majority balloted in favor
of admittance of Negroes.
"At the present time," university
President Frank Graham said yes-
terday, "only one Negro is pressing a
claim for admission to any school
or division of the University of North
Carolina." He did not deny that
other applications have been received.
These, he explained, have been re-
fused either for academic reasons or
because the applicants did not press
their claims.
Dr. J. C. Shepard, president of the
North Carolina College for Negroes,
declared that he is "firmly convinced
that Negroes could do their best work
only in their own schools."
