The University Catalogue,
speaking of the University Coun
cil, makes this succinct state
ment: ''Thus it can be seen that
the student body has an effective
system of self-government, that
motive power of the self-govern
ment is student sentiment, and
that the organ of expression of
this sentiment is the University
Council." To all of this, and
especially to the middle clause,
the Tar Heel cries Amen. "The
motive power of this self -govern
ment is student sentiment.'
With student sentimen self gov
eminent becomes at once complete
ly effective. Without student sen
timent self-goveanment is noth
We quote again from the Uni
versity Catalogue: "The student
sentiment expresses itself in this
way (expulsion) in case of garnb
ing". Gambling is supposed to
be a violation of the honor sys
tem. It is so listed in the cata
logue and it would very probably
be so designated if a vote were
taken in the student body.
With these two thoughts in
mind and with a deep feeling of
the importance of the entire self
government idea to the Univer
sity, the Tar Heel finds itself
running against a stone-wall.
Old men in college say that there
is more gambling going on right
now than there has been in years.
The comparison may or may not
be accurate, but one thing is cer
tain: there is a great deal of
gambling in college now. furth
er, we believe it is being done
more openly and that more peo

the theory of the self-government
idea, when a man knows of
gambling, he will report it to
the Council, and that body will
CApiess the sentiment of the stu
dent body. We venture the as
sertion that there are in the Uni
versity today two hundred men
who are morally certain that
gambling is in vogue and could
name a big percentage of the
players. They have not the
slightest idea of appearing before
