OF CLASS INVITATIONS
Willis Harrison, has raised a lot of fuss about
"graft" and Senior Class Invitations.
It has been pretty general knowledge, for those
who took the trouble to find out, that in the past
there has been plenty of room for certain indivi
duals to make money in handling the "conces
sion" of the class invitations. Harrison's letter to
the Student Council and the Council's report of
that to the campus did not come as a surprise

POINT OF VIEW
By Ramsay D. Potts
Intercollegiate athletics has been the subject cf
bitter controversy since it first attached itself as
part of a University's program of education. The
justification for such a program has theoretical,
ly remained the development and education of the
student athlete. -U
No Personal Accusations
Harrison made it plain that he was not accusing
Joe Patterson or any of his executive officers
who, by long tradition, are, so early in the season,
the only ones to know anything about this year's
invitations. He, Harrison, said that he wanted to
see the system changed, see the matter taken out
of the class president's hands and placed with a
permanent University agency.
Last year's Senior Class President Niles Bond
made a strenuous effort, according to those who
claimed to know the situation, to see that the in
vitations were sold to the class at the very "bot
tom," with as little allowance for the editorial
work done by the students who prepared the copy
for the pamphlets as possible. He explained the
problem to the campus through the Tar Heel.
The matter of the 1938 Invitations hasn't come
before the present class as yet. According to all
tradition there has been appointed an invitations
committee; and.it is understood that, in order to
effect a saving, a contract for the invitations was
signed last spring. The class as a recognized fis
cal body did not exist then, nor did it exist until
late in the fall when Joe finally succeeded in get
ting the class budget authorized by a quorum.
. Just what Patterson intended to do with im
proving the traditional methods of handling the
invitations business would probably hate appear
ed before long, had not the Harrison letter
brought the question before the campiis at this
particular time. 'I
: What Can Be Done '
The invitations '.'concession" should rightly be
.removed from the realm of the individual or
special, "free-lance" committee enterprise where
it now finds itself. The business grew up when
individual students, taking a personal gamble with
the sale, long ago claimed the right to make what
they could. The situation was much the same
with the class dances, until they were incorporat
ed within the class budget and placed under the
management of a class committee.
Ivey Tells About

array of amateurs Sunday night
that we have had yet. I am still
working on guest stars and an
orchestra for the program and
you may be certain that the per
formance will be worked up dili
gently and that the amateurs
and special entertainment stars
will do their utmost to give you
a good hour of entertainment."
After making his sad confes
sion, Ivey revealed ; that Roy
Armstrong, now a Field Mar
shal on the memorial's staff of
entertainers, would be in charge
of ceremonies Sunday night.
Armstrong, director of pre-
college guidance, is known for
his impersonations, especially of
Bob Burns. He insists, however,
that he is not imitating Burns.
He talked that way long before
Burns became famous.
Prizes for the amateurs will
total ten dollars, with five dol
lars to be awarded to the win
ner, three dollars to the runner
up, and two dollars to the enter
tainer judged third best.
On The Air
By Carroll McGaughey
Whether the business should be placed in the
hands of a permanent University agency, or whe
ther it can be handled much as the dances were
and included within the regular class budget, sub
ject to the class audit and to the management of
a class committee not receiving any compensa
tion, are matters of detail. That steps are being
taken, by the individual senior, Harrison, on one
side and by the class president on the other, to
revise the technique of giving the class members
their commencement invitations is a splendid
sign. The classes may have to pass their budget
in the springs, instead of the falls and winters
for this as well as the other reasons we have been

But athletic directors find themselves trying
to accomplish ends that are incompatible. They
want good publicity for their schools, they want
to make money to finance their programs, they
want to satisfy their alumni and students by
maintaining or increasing their school's athletic
prestige, and they want to put on a good show
for the public. These interests, when carried be
yond a certain point, conflict with the primary
objective of athletics the welfare of the athlete.
That primary objective in theory ends up by be
coming a minor objective in fact.
The conflict at the University of North Caro
lina has been primarily due to lack of co-operation
between the administration and athletic au
thorities. Dr. Graham has made desultory ef
forts to control the situation from South building
by laying down certain rules of conduct that
can't and won't be obeyed.
It will never be possible to co-ordinate the edu
cational and athletic programs as long as the ath
letic association plays the part of the lone wolf,
receiving no appropriation from the legislature
and directing its own destiny with a free hand.
The University of Chicago has adopted a pro
gram designed to rededicate intercollegiate ath
letics to those who take part in it.
Their "program is based on the fundamental
principle "that intercollegiate athletics are con
ducted primarily for the benefit of the students.
In the coaching and training of teams and in the
conduct of contests, the welfare of the athletes
outweighs all other considerations."
All administrative policies are directed toward
that end, which is only made possible by complete
co-operation between the athletic department and
the University heads.
