There is no atitag-Quism exist
ing between the faculty and the
students of fhe University. We
see very little of "faculty govern
ment" at Carolina, and in addi
tion, all the members of the fac
ulty are friendly in their contact
with the students some of them
are quite cordial as a result,
there is no g-eneral friction be
tween students and teachers, at
the same time, there is very lit
tle intimate connection or rela
tionship between the faculty and
students. The faculty is not an
object o'f hatred, but most cer

even acquaintances, to the aver
age undergraduate. A very few
students come here, become inti
mate friends with some members
of the faculty, and receive the
stimulus that comes from associ
ation with men of wider reading-,
deeper understanding and kindier
sympathies. But the majority of
the undergraduates here never
know their teachers save in the
class room. About four hundred
of the five hundred academic stu
dents never know a teacher save
as Dr. So and So. And about
four Hundred of us never make
any effort to know the members
of the faculty.
A good many reasons cause
this lack of intimate relation be
tween teacher and student here.
Quite "a number of the faculty
are frat men, and naturally the

they aren't, they are not fit to be
here. This reason, then, although
it 'may toe potent to some over
sensitive Students, is unimportant.
The fear of 'being charged with
"booting" is a more important
reason. Most sgfious'-of all, how

Chapel oftn becomes dull and
uninteresting to the wise men in
the junior and senior classes. But
even for us it becomes a pleasure
when different members of the
faculty take enough interest in
us to make short talks on topics
of the day. In does even an all
wise senior good to have his intel
Hectual curiosity aroused by these
talks, and to feel that the friend

more or less worth while.

To the members of the faculty
who have taken enough interest
in us to make chapel interesting
and profitable, the undergraduates
are most grateful.
Another intercollegiate associ
ation has entered the field. The
initial impetus, indispensable to
anything new, came from the oth
er Carolina to the south of us
ithe University of South Carolina.
The name of this proposed inter
collegiate affair is the Southern
College Press Association. Char
ter membership is limited to the
South Atlantic States, as is noth
ing but just in consideration of
the added pinch of ; prestige en
jjoyed by we ancient and honor
able originals. Later, the whole
South will :be embraced.
The Committee on Formation,
composed of Messrs. Broad us
Mitchell and Sara iLatimer, Jr., is
sure some live committee. Not to
be outdone by our Virginia rival
to the north, we have come into
the association, and stacked on
the shelf the bales of typewritten
matter received giving us reasons
why we should come in. We felti
our way cautiously, however, be
fore committing ourselves, feeling
that just as North Carolina came
along about last in entering the!
Union and later the Confederacy,
and was also last at Appomattox,
the Tar. Heels could afford to be;
last to join the proposed jutercol
legiate association. ; ; ; , :
The only excuse for an inter
collegiate press association, as
for any organization whatever, is
definite purpose in view. We
do not believe in organijiing mere-;
ly to join something. But we 'be
lieve the Southern College Press
Association has a definite purpose;
in view. Such an association is
coming sooner or later, with the'
expansion of Southern ' universi
ties and colleges. It is to the
other Carolina's credit that
has taken the lead. As in
old days of secession, they
ersity is growing too large for starters in South Carolina.
