Leaving A Void
Bill Friday, who received his law degree here three years
ago and stepped into a job as Assistant Dean of Students, is
stepping out of that job to something different. To be more
correct, we should say he is stepping tip to a different job,
for certainly his appointment as special assistant to Consoli
dated University, President Gordon Gray is a big promotion.
We hate to see him leave his old desk on the second floor
of South Building, even though we know he is only moving
downstairs to a new desk on the first floor. The reason we
hate to see him leave is that he will not be working with
students in his new assignment, and no other person in the
administration in recent years has had the respect, confidence
and friendship of so many students as Bill Friday. ,
In his dealings with the students, whether in fraternity
or dormitory affairs, whether with the Men's Honor Council
or the House Privileges Board, w;hether .with the president
of the student body or just a freshman who wanted advice,
Bill Friday has been sincere, friendly, and self-sacrificing
in his efforts to do anything possible to help those needing
The vacant desk he leaves is a symbol of the, void which
will exist between students and administration when his
liason is gone. But at the same time we are feeling sorry for
ourselves, we extend to Bill Friday our most sincere con
gratulations on his new job, and bur most heartfelt thanks
for his hard work, and cooperation in his term of office as
Assistant Dean of Students. C.H.
A Story Of Life
On the front page of today's paper is a beautifully written,
but painful'to read, story from the Korean front lines done
by United Press War Correspondent H. D. "Doc" Quigg. Un
like the usual war story of death and destruction, Doc Quigg's
article is a story of life life saved on the front lines through'
use of blood supplied by the American Red Cross.
Next Tuesday and Wednesday the Red Cross Bloodmobile
will return to Chapel Hill, with a quota of 500 donors to
meet. The blood that is obtained will be shipped immediately
to Korea, and used there, as Quigg tells us, to save the lives
of our friends and relatives who are in the combat forces
fighting the Communists. -
Today and tomorrow are the last regular days for making
appointments to donate blood. Students who gave their blood
on the Bloodmebile's last trip will be able to give again with
out ill effects. The number to call is 28811, and the time is
from noon to 6 o'clock this evening, and tomorrow from 11
o'clock in the morning to 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
Don't let a soldier die in Korea through your selfishness.

"Notice to women students.
, "It has come to our attention
that a pseudo-photographer is
operating on different college
and university campuses in the
Southern area. He is reported
to follow this procedure:
"He calls the coed by phone,
usually by name, stating that he
is a professional photographer
taking pictures for magazine
covers and stating that the coed
has been referred to him by one
of . her friends; he then makes
an appointment with the coed,
takes a few pictures, and then
(without the knowledge or con
sent of the coed) cuts off large
chunks of hair from the back
of their heads.
"This individual only operates
. on girls with long hair, shoulder
length or longer. There is reason
to believe that the individual
may be going from school to

I was really quite disappoint

Carmichael calls him. I would

Reluctant Blind Dotes
Open letter to the coeds:
In answer to the several letters that have been written in The
Daily Tar Heel, by coeds, complaining because the men on the
campus were reluctant to ask them for dates.
Ruffin dorm had. a picnic planned for last weekend and we de
cided to try to arrange for dates in some qt the girls' dorms. Our
dorm president was in charge of this chore, and try as he might
he had little luck. The girls didn't have anything to do, they
just didn't want to take a chance on a "blind date." When one
gets to thinking about it, the boys were taking quite a chance too.
Where are all of those girls that think that the Carolina men
should ask them for dates more often?
A Ruffin Dorm Member
More On The Levant Concert
, Although I did not hear the Oscar Levant concert, I was not
surprised to read about the conduct of some members of the
audience. I can recall several other occasions on which various
unpaid exhibitionists tried to enliven the gathering with their
demonstration much to the embarrassment or disgust of the more
passive spectators. Now, I tend to lean over backwards in an
attempt to understand and make allowances for such carrying on.
One reason, of course, is that I realize that there is plenty of
room for criticism directed toward me. Another is that I suspect
that today is little different from yesterday in some of these
respects. Probably some clown threw a cat on a stage back in
1900, and probably some indignant soul bewailed the tossing of
felines onto a concert stage. Children will be children, no matter
what age they may attain. .
Just offhand, I would venture that one reason for the whoop-de-doo
at Mr. Levant's concert arises from the fact that Mr.
Levant has made a reputation for himself as a non-conformist,
or talented and distinguished screwball. He has reprsented the spirit
of nuts-to-the-world; so probably lots of downtrodden individuals
in the audience felt that Mn Levant came to Chanel Hill to
play some music begrudgingl and to join hands with all the
fellow rebels. The cat tosers iand cat callers probably thought
that the pianist would not only, indulge but enjoy such conduct.
It is a shame, however, that they did not realize that the
reason Oscar Levant enjoys his own position as an entertainer
lies in the fact that he is, so to speak, the appointed representative
of everyone who ever wanted to give social rules a kick in the
pants. Non-conformity, in its place, is funny.
But, what about other concerts and public gatherings in Chapel
Hill in which the same type 6f rowdiness came out? Is this not
the place to examine such behavior, get to the bottom of it, and
do something about it? Surely somewhere during the four-year
trip through college there are people who can touch up the
mistakes made in the hoodlum's past. Or maybe, a cultural center
is only a place where knowledge is offered in the form of coures
and understanding is hoped fori
I don't mean to get on a soap box and blabber about "what's
wrong with our higher education." That has been done by experts
and Philip Wylie. My point is this: There are many students who
come to college, who are mentally and financially capable of
staying there, yet who leave college still feeling that the-finer-things-of-lil'e
are an imposition upon them. Somehow they develop
a defensive attitude toward si-called culture. This, I believe, can
be partly remedied more than is now the case.
If fine music, art, literature, good manners, morals, etc., are
actually values which our society believes are worth holding on
to, then it is not too late to try to instill appreciation for these
things in the college student. And I don't mean the student who
has favorable attitudes towards these values when he arrives
I refer to the student who inwardly sneers at these things and
gives way to action whenever a crowd is handy to cover him up
or back him up. :
Teachers should strive to understand this student's point of
view so well that they can reach him without causing him to
sneer even more at the high and mighty intellectual who is trying
to "reform" him. The fraternities alhd other organizations can help
this student by setting examples and showing appreciation. The
most that can be done, I think, will be done through the sympa
thetic understanding and efforts of the student's teachers. . . .

Looks To Me
by Paul Roth
"Go To Hell!" That's what they say our attitude is. And there
doesn't seem to be a lot of reason for it to be otherwise. Most
of us figure we're not going to be in school much longer, so why
worry? It seems pretty reasonable. It's an easy way out. Maybe
The Army will get a lot of us. But not all. No matter how few
come back to Carolina next year, the school is not going to fold
up. However, the thing that stands most in jeopardy in this crisis
is the "Carolina Way of Life." All right, so that is an old cliche
which isn't looked upon quite so reverently as it might be. Still,
it's therei It's "the freedom that we all enjoy an almost absolute
. lack of restriction in what, we do, what we say, and what we
think. - i
It's the fellowship in the dorms, the unchaperoned parties in
the fraternity houses, the sudsj-sippin' at the Rathskeller, the
Carolina-Dook feud, th2 jokes in tile Tarnation, Hauser in The
Daily Tar Heel, the card stunts', the coeds, and the "Y" Court.
These and hundreds of other thing are the living embodiment
of the Campus' Code and the HonOf Code. Things we take for
granted. Things we could easily kse!f
Sure, the Carolina way of lif is tor students, but it's also got
to be of and by students. Theje cin be no academic freedom
without an Honor System. No catd stents without the Card Board.
No pep rallies without a University Club. No Daily Tar Heel,
Tarnation or Yack without a Publications Board. Nor organization
in fraternities and dorms no noithing without student leadership
and interest. . ,
Carolina is going to lose a lot of its student leaders this year.
Many organizations are going to be 'hard pressed to find people
a defensive attitude toward so-called culture. This, I believe, can
of both leaders, and followers. ' ...
There is only one answer. Younger people are going, to have to
be trained to take over. Time is very important. Freshmen and.
" sophomores are going -to have to take enough interest in various
activities to prepare themselves for leadership. Coeds and ROTC
boys are going to have to play a larger part. '
Right now we have far too few freshmen arid sophomores taking
an active part in student government, or anything else for that
matter. Part of the fault lies with them, but the brunt of the
responsibility is with present leaders who jhave not had the fore
sight or initiative to get these younger people interested and to
train them. Now is the time to get busy. Soon it will be too late.
Sure, we've got a "go to hell" altitude. But the reason we've
got it is because we realize we may have to give up the things
that we prize so highly and enjoy so much. Just because we stand
to lose something we cherish is no reason to sit back and destroy
thatching by our own apathy. A stitch in time can save a lot. It can
save the Carolina Way of Life.
