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 tainly It Is not a body whose mem befs are close personal friends. 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 fxa't men In college nave an easier access to the professor than the uon-frat men. After all, 'how ever, this is no teal tarrier. The men in the faculty are too broad minded to'baTthe friendship of any decent undergradtiate Jif 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 ever, is H;be tfhder graduate indif ference. Not because they are not welcome ;at the homes of faculty -members, not because theyi feat 'to go to ithe 'homes, Ibut be-" Cause they don't know and 4on't care, is the reason why the ma jority of the students have o Jit tie ;to do witn the f acul ty . The students are indifferent to their opportunities. This is "possibly the penalty we must pay for the University's growth. It is because the Uni- v A ' . - the students to have manv ways of meeting professors other than in the class-room that the stu dents, do not push their, rather format acquaintance. Many stu dents feel that the class-room is a place where professor and stu dents meet for business purposes, that when the class is over, the relation between professor and students ceases. Besides this, life at the University is much too diversified for. the student, to knowuntil too late what heismis ing; In his lack of faculty friend ship. The students simply do not know the members of the fac ulty. Not until their ssophomore yea? do they know even by name more than one halfof, the faculty The daily chapel hour, th hour at which all undergraduates meet together as one body, is one of the best possible means of let ting- a student see and learn to know the members of the facul ty The daily talks made at chape are a splendid means of tntroduc ing the membars of the faculty, especially to the freshmen anc sophomores. Students see that l he professors are something more than beinsrs loaded with book-lore. 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 ship of the professors is after all more or less worth while. The year is drawing to a close 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. she the arc WITH CUR ADVERTISERS Belowia a list of the men who make posaibleiTHE TAB HEEL.
