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 revelation. ST n nettle- 1 "V.

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. This Year's 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 Amateur Show (Continued from Page One) 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. Bob Burns? 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 'Hobby 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 pointing out. 7:15 Dave Elman's Lobby" (WBT). 8:00 The life story of Rob ert Hare, the first American Research chemist, will be dram atized by "Cavalcade of Amer ica" (WBT). 8:30 "Texaco Town" with Eddie Cantor, Deanna Durbin, and Pinky Tomlin (WHAS) . 9:00 It's Town Hall To night !

He called the Roosevelt program a plan for temporary recovery. - Forum iutnougn i nomas nas a speaking engagement in New York tomorrow night that will necessitate his leaving Chapel Hill soon after his. speech, Mr. Heard said this morning he felt certain that the speaker would be able to remain for a short while after his talk and conduct an open forum discussion.

When questioned yesterday afternoon Heard said Thomas had not notified him of his sub ject. The CPU leader seemed to feel that the subject would not be announced until just before his speech. Faculty To Discuss Athletic Policy .V (Continued from first page) after tomorrow's faculty meet-, ing. Tomorrow's meeting will hear first a report of the action taken at the recent Southern conference session when the teeth of Rule 13, the eligibility clause, was thrown out, affect ing the University's athletic policy. The new recommendations, which may form a new policy, will then be given to the faculty for consideration. According to faculty meeting by-laws .no vote can be taken on the new pro posals until two weeks from tomorrow.

He came to the United States for the 'first time last m i 1 1 year as an excnange stuaent from the University of Roches ter. Senate Opposes Ludlow Proposal (Continued from first page) ceremony was postponed until the next meeting of the organ ization because of the illness of three of the applicants. It was voted by the senate to lend two of its portraits of fa mous Carolinians to the Alumni Association offices in the Caro lina Inn. The bills for discussion when the senate meets again next Tuesday night are: Resolved, That the Dialectic senate go on record as approving the aboli tion of freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior classes at the University of North. Carolina; and Resolved, That the Dialec tic senate approves the placing of benches in the Arboretum. ; 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. iAw.-JiJi.WJ'.'j" i nwi ANG By AUen Merrill LES There zebra. are . three species of Assembly Favors Campus Studios (Continued from Page One) .' money on a new YMCA or cush ions for the Memorial hall seats."
