Picks Duke For Nuclear Structure Laboratory Duke University has ben selected as the site for a regional Nuclear Structure Laboratory to be operated in conjunction with the Consolidated University of North Carolina. The Atomic Energy Commission, according to an announcement made simultaneously ir Washington, D. C. and Durham today, has agreed to provide $2,500,000 toward the cost of the facility. Duke University, with support from the North Carolina Board of Science and Technology and possibly other agencies, will provide the building. Major tool of the new center will be a Tandem Van de Graaff accelerator with a 15 million electron volt (MEV) cyclotron injector. This new combination is expected to produce a precision proton beam with an energy of 30 MEV, which would provide the area with a facility unmatched anywhere. Construction of the laboratory is expected to begin in 1966, with completion in about two years. The facility will be staffed and equipped to allow for the development of a substantial re- No Chronicle Til Dec. 3 Due to the Thanksgiving vacation, when no one will be on campus to make, write or read news, the next issue of the CHRONICLE will be released Friday, December 3.

Total annual operating cost for the Van de Graff facility is expected to be about $600,000. Sen. George McGovern (D- S.D.) called last night for a relaxing of stiff farm production controls in an all-out war against world-wide hunger. Speaking to a sparse audience, the Director of the Food for Peace Program appealed for acceptance of American responsibility in this area, stating, "Neither our national security nor our moral tradition will permit us to turn our backs on this ^problem." Harking back to Malthus' grim predictions, McGovern pointed out that while it has taken mankind thousands of years to attain a population of 3 billion, the next three billion increase will require only 35 years. The United States' campaign in this struggle should be waged on two fronts, the Senator declared—a short-term effort involving better use of our own abundance, "breaking the bottlenecks" inhibiting the present foreign-aid program, and a long- term acceleration of food pro duction in the underdeveloped nations themselves. Although emphasizing the humanitarian aspects of the issue, McGovern also cited the shift in formal Communist theory from concern with the industrial class to rural agitation. In the question period follow ing his address, McGovern advocated the sale of farm products to Communist countries, considering this a wise economic and political policy. He also stressed the need for an extensive program of birth-control assistance to all nations inclined to accept such a measure. Terpsichorean Members To Feature Own Works In Show The University's modern dance club, Terpsichorean, will present its annual winter concert Tuesday, Nov. 30 and Thursday, Dec. 2 in Page Auditorium at 8:15 p.m. All choreography in the program is the original work of the members. The only dance which will have a direct association with Christmas will be "Collage," a dialogue between the "spirit" of the Nativity and the "spirit" of Christmas as it is today. Through Tense Scholars 'Party' Hard Study Pressure Makes Play 'A Must' By MARGARET DOUGLAS and TONY CONNOR During the past several weeks the Chronicle office has been flooded with replies to Marurice Henkin's letter which berated the lack of intellectuality among Women's College students. While many replies have been received, few have emphasized that in any school with stringent academic requirements some tension release is imperative. In order to get a better understanding of Dukes "problem" in light of other schools with com- porable standard, representative comments were collected through personal letters to staff members. "When you've got to work like hell, you've also got to play like hell," a student at one of the Eastern schools said. A Bryn Mawr student in a letter to a Duke woman explained "We must present a thesis in order to graduate and we carry four major courses. Competition is naturally powerful so that as soon as the week is over, the campus is virtually deserted. There's not much to do here, so we go as far away as we can and forget our ivied halls." "Of course our hours are not nearly so restricitive as some. We can easily take overnights and don't have to be in until 2 on week nights." Obviously, students with hours like these have more time to unwind and do not have to offend "intellectuals" by a display in the afternoon like the one upon which Henkin commented. The point of view of the men in Eastern schools is exemplified by these two letters, one from a freshman at Darthmouth, the other a junior at Amberst. From Dartmouth: ". . . but the student at Dartmouth has to book 6 hrs. a day attend 3 hours of classes and a lab, and probably participate in some kind of organized activity for another few hours. For the average guy this is involvement enough. He is tired and tense and in his free time he wants to talk about and think about light pleasant things — hence, there is very little intellectual bulling. We talk about girls and sports, not books. Sometimes, I would like to stop and think about a concept and try to fit it into the rest of my knowledge where it belongs, but I can't because I have still have to read and learn 50 pages. Study is work here. And pleasure (just like to a soda-jerk or an electrician) is escape from work, you begin to feel like part of a separate world, and there is this curious feeling of being out of touch, at least for me. I find it hard to think much or really care about world politics. "The emphasis is not where producing a man 'whole in conscience.' The emphasis is on competence. I find that very depressing." From Amherst: "Really, the only time I feel like a human being is during vacations. Then I can think or puruse my own interests without the foreboding that I must finish themes, read pages, and memorize facts for courses necessary for the fulfillment of graduation requirements. I work like a machine during the week — when classes are over a different set of machinery goes into action. Like in the proverbial helpless wizard omit the flood keeps on coming; and we 'leaders of tomorrow' live only for today." Duke Stole Carolina's Ram, Besides Getting Their Goat the personification of these two attitudes the current commercialization of Christmas may be seen more clearly. The choreography for the creation was done by Peggy Hackney, and Ormand Hardin composed the music. Other works on the program include "Sealed Room," "Red Rover-You're It-Not It-Catch Me If You Can," and "Back Porch." The "Sealed Room" is a standard work of Terpsichorean's repertoire and is often presented by the group. "Red Rover-You're It-Not It- Catch Me If You Can" is from a work by Robert Shumann entitled "Carinival," and is a dance dramatizing a child's joy. The choreography was done by Betsy Ramsey. The finale of the presentation will be the work entitled "Back Porch." While the Blue Devils stomped on the Tarheels of the University of North Carolina Saturday, other thoughts then those brought on by the excitement of the contest stirred in everyone's mind. The big question during the game was, "Where was the ram?" Al Cone gave the secret out at the end of the game, but the Duke fan who went to the tennis Class To Present 'Henry IV Reading The members of English 123 will present a dramatic reading of Shakespeare's "The Second Part of King Henry IV," in the small amphitheater, room 139 Social Sciences Building, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1. This reading is connected with the class study of Professor George Williams' Shapespeare Class. Some years ago it was Professor Williams' custom to present such a reading every semester. The roll of Falstaff will be read by Chris Armitage, a graduate student in English, who has just appeared in the Durham Theatre Guild's "Inherit the Wind." All other members of the cast are members of English 123. Bob Berson will take the part of Pistol, supporting Falstaff. Julia Warless will read the part of Hotspur's widow, Lady Percy. courts to see the ram were sadly disappointed. The ram was no longer. The whole ram story is still hazy, but certain facts are now uncovered. Several Duke students apparently grabbed the ram two weeks before the game and kept it on a farm. While it was there a second phase of the mystery began. During efforts to return the ram to the Tarheels, someone discovered a note—the Duke Alumni had the ram. During the game Saturday, the alumni placed it strategically—- in the tennis courts where everyone could see it. While they went to their car to get locks to put on the gates, several Duke students took the ram and tried to take it down the tunnel leading into the stadium. The students were caught; the ram was taken to the Indoor Stadium weight room where it remained until 6:30 p.m., when it was turned over to the Chapel Hill police. They then turned it over to Tarheels. Murray Quits Coaching Post Football coach Bill Murray announced his resignation, after the victory over Carolina Saturday, to become executive secretary of the American Football Coaches Association. No successor has yet been chosen. Murray announced in two separate meetings with his players and coaching assistants his decision to leave his head coach ing position after 15 years at the University. He called his last game in which the Devils ran over Carolina 34-7, "by far the Former Coach Bill Murray greatest" of his entire 35-year coaching career. During his tenure, the Blue Devils captured five ACC titles, shared three others, and received three post-season bowl invitations which resulted in victories over Nebraska and Arkansas. Murray was voted conference coach of the year six times, while his teams have ranked among in the top 20 in the nation eight of the past 13 years. Murray first came to the University as an undergraduate in 1927, and became an All-Southern halfback. In his career as head coach here, Murray guided his squads to an overall 93-51-9 record.
