Negroes Can Get
Only a hazy memory in the
minds of most Carolina stu
dents perhaps is last year's head
line story of Negroes seeking en
trance to the University law
Backed up by a Supreme Court
decision declaring states were
obliged to provide higher educa
tional facilities for their citi
zens regardless of race, one citi
zen, a Negro woman, exerted
pressure on the University ad
ministration for entrance here.
Her application was turned down
along with several others.
But the issue remained un
solved. Clearly the state was not
providing for Negroes the facili
ties to which they were entitled.
A law school for Negroes was
organized - in Durham with a
faculty made up of four Univer
sity and two Duke professors
who are to carry this additional
work along with the require
ments of their regular positions.
Although only a single Negro
student was able to qualify for
the work this fall thereby mak
ing it useless for the school to
operate this year, the plan will
not be recorded as a failure.
Officials of the Negro college
have stated that it is expected
that this group of professors will
serve as a nucleus for the law
faculty next year when the
One familiar with the prob
lems created could hardly ask
for a more intelligent solution
to a perplexing problem. Al
though the present set-up calls
for a Negro law school only, it is
apparent that other graduate
educational facilities may be
provided for Negroes in the same
manner when they are needed.
We congratulate the legisla
ture, the professors, and any
others instrumental in handling

After two come-backs in self-de
fense of the Carolina coed, it is ap
parent that it is high time to say a
few word3 of understanding to the
true Carolina gentleman.
One girL new to the campus, was
heard to remark several days ago-that
"It's all bo different from what
thought it was going to be. I had no
idea things would be like this." That
statement can obviously be taken two
ways, but this time, we prefer, to in
terpret it in the best light. For in
stance, if the said coed will give her
self time to let the newness wear off
her surroundings so that she can get
a real picture of the place in which
she has chosen to get her education,
she will find herself in an atmosphere
of give and take where each student,
be he boy or girl, learns to depend
entirely upon himself or herself and
accept all advances in the spirit in
which they are given.
To those of us who have been here
before, those who have been seen look
ing their worst and their best in the
classroom and at dances and to whom
the University boys aire capable of
being the best oi pals, the realization
has come that the person you see day
in and day out is bound to lose her
glamour. Hence, dance week-ends see
the advent into our midst of any num
ber of so-called "imports," down to
share in the good times that the coed
has all during the year.
It is easy to see the boys' point of
view, because after close association
with the same people for a while, a
change is always welcome. However,
after all, coeds are still girls. They
like to hear the big orchestras, to see
football games with a date, and had
much rather go out with boys who are
Lnot dating them just to pass the time.
So, boys, you'll have to give us
credit for one thing. We know that
human ' nature has two sides, and
we're willing to see both of them the
good as well as the bad.

To Tell The Truth-
By Adrian Spies
(Here is a letter which might have
been written by a boy who could never
go to college to his friend away at
school. A bitter boy who, in the great
American quest for decent work, has
'Fm writing this letter, to you be
cause it is a rotten day up here in the
city, and because I am in my usual
state of unemployment. If I had some
thing to do I probably wouldn't have
time to write. And, as would no doubt
please some of our more influential
citizens, I wouldn't even have time to
think. For thought, slow careful
thought that builds into angry pyra
mids that while aw,ay the hours, is bad
medicine in these war-cast days. Ask
any big industrialist who has already
unwrapped that little American flag
which he used to wave from his office
window as "our boys" went marching
by. ' -

there your buildings are a shield from

envy you and wish that I were with
you burrowing my head in the "peda

some of the things which have made
me furious in the lst month. As you
know, in these last few years I have
knocked around and waited for the
city to throw me a bone with an oc

needed development. When I walked
in the streets of cities no one was in
terested in me and the haunting prom
ise of my youth. None of the people
cried shame at my poverty or wailed
for, my bitterness. No one seemed
worried about me or the millions of
young boys like me who were seeing
life from the end of an employment
office line. And the nation went merr
rily on its way to allow partisan dis
sension in congress and stupid state
politics to fight every effort that the
administration. has offered. And every
once in a while some one threw us a

there's been a change. Now as I walk
along the street with the vigor of the
youth that I still have I see some of
our. o-ood citizens shakiner their "'heads
sadly after me. Once in a while I hear 1
them saying something about the pity
of such a young life being threatened
by the vileness of war. Now, you see,

mature martyrs for "the cause." They

NO OTHER WAY
Yesterday, the special committee,
appointed recently by Dean Bradshaw
to investigate the sophomore picture
question, prepared a report in which
they said that sophomores must pay
for their own Yackety Yack pictures.
Nine out of ten fellows on the cam
pus would agree, . "Sure, they should.
Why shouldn't the sophs pay for their
own pictures just as the juniors ar.d
The committee said that they '-believe
the majority of the sophomores
are in favor of the pictures and recom
mended that the extra, amount be
added to the sophomore class fee and
collected by the University on student
The chief reaction to this state
ment would be amazement at why the
committee should bother its time with
such obvious facts.
But the committee had a definite
purpose which it tried to follow. The
dean of students didn't stop the pas
sage of the class' will and appoint a
committee because he bitterly opposed
letting the sophs have individual pic
tures. ' '
Some of the trustees are allergic to
J the word "fees," and fly into a lather
at the mention of increasing the pres
ent burden. So the dean called for a
student committeeto look for a take
care of this increase for sophomore
He suggested the surplus of the
Publications Union board and the com
mittee met with the board but soon
understood that if the publications are
to remain on a sound "basis financially
there must be a surplus, although not
quite as large as it stands at the pres
ent. To the committee this appeared
to be the only practical source other
than the'sophs themselves.
The committee has made its report,
the dean will more than likely shuttle
it on to the trustees and, after hearing
that the question was passed on a
special student group, they should let
it slip through.
Whether the recommendation of
the committee goes any further than
the dean's office or not, the fact re
mains that if the sophomores have in
dividual pictures in the Yackety Yack
they will have to lay out the mazuma.
