Now that Dr. Mangum has seen fit
to take the editor-in-chief out of the
game for a while, it has been necessa
ry to put in a pretty green substitute.
But now that we are in we are going
to play our hardest; we will try to
make up bT trying hard what we lack
of experience and knowledge of the
game. And, you men on the side
lines, if you feel a groan about to es
cape your lips, why just choke it. We
are going to do our best.
In a recent editorial the change in
the examination period was considered
and the deduction made that it had
not been a wise thing to put them
after Christmas. One thing which
was not brought up at that time was
the condition of the'general health of
the students in January, the month
when, under the present system, ex
animations must be prepared for and
stood. January has been invariably
the most unhealthy month of the col
lege j'ear. There has been more pneu
monia in January than in all the rest
of the year put together. In January
bad colds, tonsilitis, and grippe make
their annual raid and consequently
the infirmary is best patronized during
the very month in which examina
tions come. This fact can be traced
to the run-down condition of the ma
jority of the students after their holi
day dissipations for all of them dis
sipate in one way or another. They
come back, half broken down, to en
counter the severest weather of the
year and in many cases the weather
gets the best of the encounter. The
fact that January is the most sickly
month of the year for Chapel Hill peo
ple should be considered when putting
the examination period in that month.
There are some things being done
on the campus that are wrong, that
nobody will deny to be wrong, but
which still linger on. The University
Council is elected by the self-governing
student body to be their instru
ment in eliminating these flaws in our
life here, but in many cases their
hands are tied. The evils exist: the
Council has a vague knowledge of
their existence but they . are helpless
unless the matter is brought to their
This partial failure of the Council
to perform its function successfully is
due particularly. to one class of men
the onlookers who stand by silent ob
servers of misdeeds which they would
like to see done away with men who
"of course wouldn't think of doing!
anything like that", but who just the
same would never make a move to
bring about the apprehension of any
one who had violated the self-imposed
laws under which we live. A case in
poiut occurs to us now: A certain
student during the recent exami
tions was heard to remark to several
fellow students that he had seen So-
and-so cheating on an examination!
and that he certainly wished some
body would report him. This was one
incident we heard of; no doubt there
are several similar cases at every set
of examinations, where men would
like to see reporting done but will not
do it themselves.
These men who fail in their duty in
cases like this are of two kinds those
who see their duty and lack the moral
courage necessary for its performance
and those who do not realize their
duty because they have not a proper
concept of what the University Coun
cil really is.
With the first class, the moral cow
ards with whom it is merely a ques
tion or lack or nerve, we shall not
trouble ourselves much for they will
not be influenced by reason in this
matter. But to men of the latter sort.
to those who, because they do not un
derstand the University Council, do
not think that they need concern
themselves at all with the morality of
the other fellow, we wish this article
With such men the fault is really a
failure to understand the spirit of self
government, for what is ths Universi
ty Council but the institution of
Democracy as applied to college life?
The faculty has always had the power
to govern us arbitrarily but they have
always chosen wisely to let the student
body govern itself whenever it has
shown a disposition to do so. And
since we are to govern ourselves, we
must govern ourselves. We must not
believe that we have done our whole
duty in keeping ourselves clean, if an
other member of our democracy does
not keep the laws which bring us
prosperity here, our duty is not com'
plete until we have seen justice meted
out to him.
