NAACP Will Not Boycott
In Protest This Christmas
The National Association for

seup (NAACP) will not
jonsor a nationwide Christ
las boycott, .according to a
evvs release from the New
York headquarters.
Roy WilMns, executive sec
retary of the NAACP, in a let
ter to Louis E, Lorn ax, said
that "careful thought" was
given to "the problems of
such a consumer strike," but
that such a strike would have
little effect on Birmingham,
Alabama. Lomax, on behalf
of the Writers and Artists for
. Justice, had asked that the
NAACP endorse such a strike
in protest against the recent
racial violence in Birming
ham. Wilkins said that a boycott
would not effect a city such
as Birmingham, whose econ

This is the third time In re

there was a sell out for "The
Skin of Our Teeth" and in 1958
for the "Match Maker." Both
of these shows were written
by Thorton Wilder.

situation in Alabama or the

The NAACP he added, be
lieves that "selective buying
campaigns" are most effec
tive in areas in which busi
nesses with unfair employ
ment practices can be boy
cotted. These local strikes
have been effective in the past
and will continue to be used
ia the future.
In addition to being unfair
to businesses that have had
no bearing on the Birmingham
bombings, stated the release,
"it seems unfortunate to furth
er deprave Negro children, al
ready brutalized by segrega
tion, by denying them the
annual joys of a Christmas
tree and toys."

Rush Book
The possibility of a com
bined rush booklet by Panhel
lenic was considered Monday.
The book would save the in
dividual houses quite a large
sum of money, pointed out
Barb Bosse, secretary. The
postage would be combined
and also the larger number
would cut down on cost
The possibility of houses in
serting notes to rushees in the
individual booklets would be
The book would probably al
low four to six pages to each
house, with individual repre
sentatives in charge of each
house's section.
Some of the representatives
felt that there would be a pos
sibility of losing individuality
and a personal approach. It
was also pointed out that
houses usually send only to
those rushees in whom they
are interested and that they
would now be going to every
one going through rush.
Representatives were to
take the idea to their respec
tive houses Monday night to
find out their feelings. Further
discussion will be held after
the houses feelings are dis
covered. Bill Buckley, president of
Interfraternity Council IFC
spoke to the group and asked
that they find three or more
girl? who would be interested
in serving as representatives
of Panhellenic on Fraternity

tion FM). The representa
tives were to ask for vol
unteers in their houses.
