McCord said that 10 admit Negroes to white Southern colleges "would so effectively de•troy their efficiency of operation that we might as well close them up." Caldwell would not comment on other specific projects, but there 1« a. possibility that the University of North Carolina might be considered at a regional engineering college. Alabama Polytechnic Institute at Auburn has been mentioned as a powible ait« for the South's regional college* of veterinary medicine and architecture. , The topic expected to absorb most of the session today is that of financing Die system. Initial casts would txi borne by the slates on « Population basis, but several philanthropic foundations arc understood to have made tentative oi- lers ol aid.
