Slocum, direc tor of the band. When asked for his reason he stated, "We just don't go, that's all." After questioning further it was learned that the Athletic association is not financially able to send the band. The de cision however, rested on the outcome of the Carolina-Duke and Fordham-Pitt games. The reason for this was that if both teams had won, it would have in fluenced the gate receipts in New York. Since both teams lost it did not seem probable to the Athletic association that the gate receipts would be large enough to pay the expenses for the band. It would cost $2,000 to send the entire 100 pieces. A trip to Charlottesville, Va., on Thanksgiving day for the Virginia game is now planned. It is promised also that the. band will go to Philadelphia next year to encourage the team on to vie tory when Carolina meets the University of Pennsylvania. The band has not taken a ma jor trip since the fall of 1936 when it accompanied the team to the first contest Carolina had with New York university. tive lounge and date room, and will be ready for use soon. Brooks Patten 'wishes to re mind the students that the YMCA is open to the campus at large. Every student is a mem ber of the organization, arid the cabinets hope that as many stu dents as possible will take part in the programs and the fine fellowship that is shared by all. The meetings are held each Mon day evening at 7:15, unless an nounced otherwise, and adjourn promptly at 8 o'clock. DR. KNIGHT SAYS BUCK IS PASSED There would be little, if any thing, in American education that could not be done properly, if only youth knew better, what it needs and if American educa tors could better advise them. This is tire opinion of Dr. Ed gar W. Knight, Kenan professor of education at the University and well known author and edu cator. Dr. Knight, in a featured edi torial in the current issue of "School Management," discusses the reasons for the large num ber of failures among college students. r : Out of 1,000,000 youth gradu ated from high schools, last spring, he says, approximate ly one-third entered college this fall, and of this number about 150,000 will receive their de grees in 1942. "The causes of these fail ures," Dr. Knight declares, "run all the way in the alphabet from alcohol to zeros. "And all along the line the 'buck is passed.' Professors in graduate schools complain of the lack of excellence in the col leges. College professors say that the high schools do shoddy work. High school teachers say the work in the elementary schools is poor. Elementary school teachers point to the un satisfactory home conditions of the children. And the mothers say to the teachers of . their problem children: 'Well, what can you expect? Just look at their daddies'."

HERE'S A HINT FOR YOU BOYS ' "Good students make better housekeepers," declared Mrs. Estelle Boyd, supervisor of dor mitories at WCUNC. "If you would see someone truly, stand in the doorway of her own room, for therein lies the reflection." Mrs. Boyd pointed out that campus leaders and honor-roll students have the highest room grade averages. Those doing dining-room work to help pay their expenses also rate at the top. Freshman girls, with their home teaching still fresh in their minds, average better than up per classmen. The girls with the lowest housekeeping grades are usually students who are most uncooperative in study habits and social programs. So boys, take a hint! Always ASK a girl what" kind of grades she makes before you ASK her to marry you. If laid end to end the number of students studying each night in the library would be a long one, perhaps. CO.
