Linder To Speak On Euler’s Cipher
Professor Arthur Linder will
address the Statistics Colloqu
ium on Monday, December 2, on
“A Cipher of Euler's.’*
A cipher is a kind of mathe
matical puzzle or code, and
cryptograms—writings in a ciph
er—appear in newspapers and
magazines today to challenge
the ingenuity of readers. In the
eighteenth century, such puz
zles enjoyed great popularity
in the courts of Europe, both
for popular enjoyment and for
the very serious purpose of com
municating secret political mes
sages, and people were retain
ed by royalty for the purpose
of inventing and deciphering
these codes and puzzles.
In the year 1744, the famous
Swiss mathematician Leonhard
Euler, writing from Berlin to

Christian Goldbach, who had
been in the employ of Catha
rine the Empress of Russia at
St. Petersburg, posed a crypto
gram to him for solution. It is‘
not known whether or not Gold
bach solved Euler’s cipher, but
many mathematicians have at
tempted it in later years with
out success. Not long ago when
a committee of mathematicians
was organizing the collected
works of Euler for publication,
a prize set for tha solution
of this unsolved cipher. Profes
sor Linder and a mathemati
cian colleague, Professor P.
Speziali, accepted the chal
lenge and deciphered it. Pro
fessor Linder will describe the
cipher and their method of sol
ution. which was based cn
statistical methodology, at the
Colloquium Lecture.

Hie Kennedy visit brought tut
the largest contingent of press
representatives ever to cover a
news event in North Carolina
over 300 newspaper, radio, TV
and magazine and wire service
people came.
These were given pres* kits,
citing the schedule and who’s who
for the day—pins special pamph
lets welcoming the press, and
apologizing for the abort shrift
given to newspapermen when
they came to Chapel Hill MB
years previously, in 1199.
It was entitled “An Apology
and a Welcome to the Press Cov
ering the Visit of President Ken
noß* to Chapel Hill.
A shbtiUe was “A Mere Over
sight.”
It read, in part:
“The University of North Caro
lina offers belated but sincere
apologies to 22 newspaper cor
respondents who were not ac
corded our usual red carpet re
ception when they visited Chapel
Hill in June of 1859 at the time
President James Buchanan was
an honored guest at Commence
ment.
“By modern standards of press
relations, the journalists follow
ing in his trave’s
received list’s face it) pretty
shabby treatment. We hope cm
this/ day. October 12, 1961. to
make up for the mistakes of 102
years ago.
"In justice to University of
ficials and Commencement mar
shals of 1699, not much was
known here in those days about
care and feeding and vital help
fulness to visiting journalists.
“President Kemp Plummer
Battle in his History of the Uni
versity of Norto Carolina explain
ed it as “a mere oversight.”
“A reporter for the New York
Herald complained that no one
made arrangements for news
papermen to obtain food. No
hotel or room reservations were
made for them. No one offered*
a table or vantage point for wit
nessing the events.
“A Raleigh news man was
even more vehement. He de
scribed the awful ride of the
press corps from Durham to
ChapeL Hill. A fine carriage
transported the President’s par
ty. But the 22 newsmen were
loaded in an alleged ‘passenger
coach,’ actually a converted wag
on without springs. The trip was
rough and bumpy, and the ve
hicle traveled at the speed of*
two miles an hour—six hours to
make the 12 miles journex Jo*
Chapel Hill. The reporters had
to pay their own way—two dol
lars a head for a one-way trip.”

—Durham Recalls JFK and LBJ—
, (Continued from Page 1)
Mr. Durham recalls that Mr.
Johnson once won 'an election
by 87 votes, but because he ftsd.
been calling himself Landslide
Johnson, four years liter*the
voters had forgotten the 87-vote
margin and landslid Landslide
into office again.
Mr. Johnson is a warm, out
going man, he said, somewhat
more so than Mr. Kennedy was.
EHe recalled that during the Tru
man and Eisenhower adminis
trations “you could pick up the
phone and talk to the President
Iwithin two minutes.” Mr. Ken
nedy was harder to get to. The
braintrusters (“those Irish
boys”) “tightened up around
him.”
Mr. Durham will not venture
an opinion on the difference be
tween the Kennedy and the
Johnson intellects. “Intellect is
something you can’t put your
finger on.” Mr. Kennedy was
land Mr. Johnson is “well above
the average intellect.”
Sitting in a cottage behind his
East Franklin Street residence,
'among walls coated with framed
(photographs of Congressional
colleagues and other govern
mental friends (“all his anti
ques,” Mrs. Durham calls these
souvenirs), Mr. Durham pre
dicted that President Kennedy
would have won the election
next year if he had lived.

“He knew there was a situa

years. He dedicated himself to
doin£ something about it. He
knew it would make him unpopu
lar. But ,1 think his popularity
had been rising. People began
to hate Kennedy, but I think the
same thing would have happen

ry Truman. Mr. Truman had a
lot of brains that nobody ever
gave him credit for. You
remember what everybody
thought about him, and then
they turned around and voted

plained again that he thought the
building “should present its face
as originally intended.”
Mr. Strowd said he favored the
amendment because the railing
seemed to have developed a ten
dency to blow down under strain.
The motion was called to a
vote. Mr. Gidus, whose attention
had apparently lapsed for an in
stant, accidentally voted for it.
Mr. LeGrand turned pink with
mirth. Mrs. Walters threw back
her head and laughed uproarious
ly. Mr. Giduz quickly requested
a revision of the vote. A vote
by show of hands was held. Mr.
Giduz was alone in voting against
the amendment.
He suggested, “as a maganani
mous gesture,” that the vote for
the amendment be made unani
mous.
itoe original motion also passed.
Result: remodeling contracts were
awarded to Clancey and Theys,
J. T. Self Electric Co. of Dur
ham, and Carolina Air Condition
ing Co. of Durham for the heat
ing work, all with only alternate
number two. and with a ten per
cent additional allowance. Mr.
Peck and Mr. LeGrand will pre
pare a bond anticipation note for
$44,000 for presentation to the Al
dermen at their next meeting.
When the actual cost of the re
modeling is known, a bond will
be issued for that amount.
But the Board was not quite
finished with the cupola prob
lem. A few minutes later, in the
course of authorizing Mr. Peck
to advertise the Town's old
wheeless tar kettle for sale, Lu
cien Faust, representing four
planners attending the meeting,
lose and said, “The Planners’
Bench wants to suggest that it
might be possible fdr the tar
kettle to be used as a cupola.’’
