Coeds Fall Down
It looks like maybe the Women's Honor Council might
have been acting in the best interests of the student body by
deliberately ignoring the Student Constitution in trying cases
of violation of house rules.
Underlying the Council's actions is the fact that the house
councils, whose job it is to try such cases, are woefully inade
quate for the job and utterly incapable of handling the task
assigned to them by the constitution.
As presently operating, house councils do little more than
hand out certain punishments for girls who happen to be
brought before them. They have no established procedure,
and no established body of precedent. Furthermore, the of
ficers of the several sororities serve as the councils for the
sorority houses. This is a situation which isn't calculated to
properly administer justice.
Proper administration of coed justice in the matter of
house- rules is going to require some -revamping of the house
council setup. The councils are going to have to either make
themseleves adequate to their purpose, or there must be a
change in the organization of coed judiciary on the house
council level. The creation of a special court, made up of house
presidents or of representatives from the' several dorms and
sororities, might be the solution to the problem.
The whole situation boils down to the fact that the coeds
apparently have not accepted their responsibility under the
Student Constitution to adequately administer the rules under
which they live. Their immediate job should be to put their
judicial houses in order to insure the proper administration
Promises And Pledges
The Daily Tar Heel is tightening its belt again. Beginning
this week it will cease publishing it Saturday issue.. Further
curtailments in the services this newspaper provides are an
ticipated. We must accept these monetarily-caused handicaps with
? firm promise to the student body that we will continue to
try to live up to the job The Daily Tar Heel has always borne,
in good times and in bad.
That job is to provide the campus with the news that ef
fects1 students the editorial policy that best represents their
best interests, and the forum in which students may express
their views and feelings.
We hope students will realize the causes and effects of the
new belt-tightening. It is our sincere hope that The Daily Tar
Heel may soon be able to return to the status of a full-fledged
college daily. Until that time, it will continue to carry on in
a fashion which we hope will receive the approval of the
student body. At least we will continue to try.
A Good Try, Anyway
News Item: The flag at the Chapel Hill Post Office has
come down after defying elements and amateur steeple
jacks for a month. It was taken from its perch by a pole
So it looks like the local reserve officer training units and
Daily Tar Heel Columirst Bob Selig will have to find another
way to settle their flag-flying arguments. It was still a good
That leaves a lot of editorial steam lying around the local
student newspaper office;.

It was u vouv,lhi day, Ma, but
J came out okay'.
Tuesday, I'm talking about.
I got up at the ungoJly hour
of 7 a.m. to accompany Student
Entertainment Committee Chair
man Dick Allsbrook to Durham
to meet ba-lad singer John Jacob
Niles, who appeared on the SEC
program that night.
It was just beginning to driz
zle when we set out, and the
rain got worse as the morning
wore on. We got into Durham
just seconds before the train
was due in at 7:55. It was late.
Niles was coming in on a milk
train known as the Virginia
Creeper, which hasn't been
known to be on time for the
past four years. The last time it
was punctual, I understand, was
the day it was so foggy the en
gineer missed five whistle stops
in the gloom and caught up on
his schedule by accident.
The train is so slow they're
considering building a cowcatch
er on the back to keep cattle
from climbing aboard and dis
turbing the passengers. It's so
slow that the custom at Union
Station in Durham is to list time
of arrival on the blackboard as
"Today, We Hope."
After he arrived, we loaded
bags, zithers and Niles (who
was decked out in black hom
burg, blue overcoat and chalk
checking, and yellow knitted
gloves) into the car and rode
through that miserable rain
back to Chapel Hill.
Getting up that early in the
morning was really worthwhile,
however, I found out. I made
my earliest class on time for
the first time in three weeks.

Much later the same day, I
strolled around by the Phi Delt
house where the University
Party was holding a nominat
ing session, and I bumped right
into a cause.
The cause was the occasion of
my first political speech of the
year, and I hope my last. Her
name is Sue Lindsay, whom I
shall go on public record here
and now as solidly behind in
her race for the editorship of
the 1952 Yackety Yack.
Sue won the UP nomination
over Ken Penegar, in a vote that
was closer than it should have
There is no comparison be
tween the two candidates. Ken,
while a hard worker and a fine
fellow, is a freshman and needs
a good deal more experience
before he steps into a job as im
portant as the editorship of the.
Carolina yearbook. He is unde
niably mature for his age, but
he is not yet old enough nor ex
perienced enough to tackle the
job he was seeking.
On the other hand, Sue has
had two years of yearbook ex
perience behind her in addition
to her high school work (which
both aspirants can be credited
with). The two are equal hi the
time they have spent on year
book work at Chapel Hill.
It boils down to this: With
as qualified a potential editor
as Sue Lindsay in the race,' Ken
Penegar has no business seek
ing the job at least one and
. maybe two years before he will
have enough experience and
age behind him to handle it.
But I'm giving odds right now
that the Student Party will
nominate Penegar. He's too
strong a party man for them
to turn clown. Any takers?
Reminder to the Student Leg
You'll be making one heiluva
bi? mistake if you let the much
argued judicial bill pass tonight
without deleting the section
wich jfives a mere two persons
the power to block approval of
any council aspirant they don't
happen to like (politically, per
sonally, or for any number of
other reasons which have noth
ing to do with a person's quali--fications
for -of fke. ------
There is a bill now before the
student legislature that would
x set up another selection board.
This board would be composed
ol nine members, two each from
the Student, Women's, and Man's
Honor Councils and three mem
bers appointed by the student
body president. The function of
the board would be to pass on
the qualifications of those wish- '
ing to be on one of the honor
councils. . '-.i
For over 45 years the student;
body elected Honor Council
members without needing the
advice of a selection board.
These councils were highly esj
teemed and have rarely befjf
critized. Without going into de-"
tail, the success of the present
Mens Council bi-partisan Board
is- certainly debatable. Do the
backers of this bill believe that
the student council members are
defective in some manner? The'
record would not seem to in
If the proposed board is to
have any value at all its opin- "
ions must be given great weight
by the voters. If this happens
thru the board will actually be
selecting council members. It is
claimed that this would insure
better membership. How? Arc
we to assume that the opinion
of nine students would be bet
ter than the judgement of the
entire student body? This is a
rather un-democratic idea.
The backers of this bill claim
that it would help to eliminate
dirty politics. They claim that
the present political parties are
not qualified to nominate honor
council members. Would a nine
member board be more quali
fied? In the long run the parties
' must nominate candidates ac
ceptable to the students. When
; - they no longer do this they fold.
' Who would the selection board
be responsible to?
The function of the political
parties is to seek out qualified
candidates. The function of the
board would be to interview
those who applied. There is a
real difference. Many excellent
prospective members would
never go down to Graham Me
morial for such'an interview. In
stead they have to be persuad
ed to run. The parties can do
this. The board cannot.
The other great fault of the
selection board idea is that it
can be packed. It is not stretch
ing the imagination too much to
see the possibility of a self per
petuating clique taking over the
councils. Remember Jhere would
be six of the nine votes on the
board represented by present
council members. Another pos
sibility is that one party could
control it. The other three votes
would be represented by ap
pointees. At any time any one
member of the board could
coach a candidate in the type
of answers he should make to
the questions that are asked. Is
this eliminating "dirty politics"?
" The Education Department of the New York Times conduct,
a survey of colleges recently which revealed that more x:-,hn -per
cent are in favor of instituting a program of accelerated w .
cation. More than half of the other colleges are in the pn. (.-;.;., ,.
studying the potentialities and needs of acceleration.
Several colleges have already announced their plans .iV
forthcoming three-year accelerated program. But most i tr.
major colleges and universities throughout the country are nwan
ing the government's manpower authorities to establish a defin ',
system of draft deferments.
-It seems to me that the arguments, for acceleration (...!..
those that oppose the speed-up plan.
x Several Eastern colleges, fuch as Harvard, Yale, Column,
Princeton, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brown. bs,
their opposition on the fact that we are not engaged in a w,,:-;
war nor are we undergoing a program of total mobilization. Ti.(;
do not consider that we are in a state of national emergency rv
do they wish to upset the status quo of the campus unnecessarily
However, it is fairly evident that if we do not have vo l,
war we still have Universal Military Training. Either one-certainly--take
away a year of a student's life. To coim. n -,
for that year or more that might be lost the student will natural
want to regain it by speeding up his program of education.
He wip certainly see the futility and uselessness of vaUni.
down" college courses. He will see that the current program u,i;u.
a great deal of time by. allowing extended summer vacations are
by having short : class days. He will have responsibilities that v.;',
have to be met and he will feel that the sooner he meets them the
better off he'll be.
If a national crisis should rise,, an accelerated program voul-.
help serve the nation by quickly filling the gaps in the manpower
shortage, especially in the technical fields. It would present t!
government with the source of educated men and women that r
has been seeking.
I think that an accelerated program could be easily workec
out at Carolina. This .could be accomplished in several ways. 0m
way would- be to abandon the repetitious Social Science, History
and Political Science courses. Also in place of the language survey
literature courses which are required, I would substitute the mure
practical language conversation and composition courses. I woulc
also suggest that a year of physical education be dropped from the
required curriculum. :
I do not feel that taking four courses a quarter would be ar.
overpowering burden on the students' minds. Therefore, I would
recommend that, the University require each student to take b
least 20 quarter hours of work ; each quarter.
Of course, the easiest and probably the best way to complete:
four years' work in three years' time is by attending sumn;e.
school. However, we must not lose sight of the fact that a lot :
students depend upon their summer employment to help put their.
Regardless as to just what the exact solution is to obtaining
a satisfactory accelerated curriculum, we should accept the fact
that the speed-up program is coming to all college campuses soon

The exploring mind fascinates
me, and so naturally the letter
"Lack of Nobility" in Satur
day's Daily Tar Heel left me in
a thoughtful silence. Why does
this lack exist?
Perhaps I misinterpret, but
I believe nobility to be equivi
lant to brotherly love the
capacity to see the world
through another's eyes. The dif
ficulty of this transcendence is '
readily seen when one thinks
of the tangible and intangible).:;
conflicts that at times may seem . .
stupendous in light of the re-i;'
sources, of experience we have '
to alleviate or solve them. It's
little wonder we have few re
sources left to express nobility.. ,,
Identification of the uneasi- :
n; ss in the face of these conflicts
was, I believe, one of the main
contributions of Billy Graham
to a few students.on the campus.
My only regret is that his stay
was so short in comparison to
the need. " '
