For This Issue:1 Night Editor, Rolfe Neill-
While the new executive branch of student government is
being formulated, it is time to review the accomplishments of
the old regime.
What has Henry Bowers' predecessor done?
That question looms large upon the minds of those interest
ed in student government as well as those who claim that
the whole system of students "meddling" in, University af
fairs should be thrown out.
In a rocky turbulent year, John Sanders has quietly gone
about his job in a reserved but highly competent manner.
Not an ostentatious person, Sanders, nevertheless, has com
pleted sucessfully a job-that is the biggest headache on camp
us and one that requires considerable intelligence and energy.
The problems confronting the student body president in
the last year have been mainly problems involving action with
the administration. Med School tuition raise, the question
of student welfare particularly in the self-help and social
benefits fields, plus academic matters all these have demand
ed a president who could work with South Building, disagree
with the faculty, or suggest changes to the Board of Trustees.
Sanders has been able, in a large way, to work with these
Almost singlehandedly, Sanders started a fight to block
the Med School raise in tuition that the State Legislature was
considering. Although his campaign was unsuccessful in halt
ing the raise, he gained great respect for Carolina Student
Government from the administration, from the Board of
Trustees, and from the State solons.
He helped reorganize the Student Welfare Board, the joint
student government-administration group that discusses and
advises on general questions affecting students and South
Although primarily a project of members of the Interdorm
Council and the Dean of Students, Sanders worked hard on
the whole social room question and made pertinent sugges
tions on ways to obtain better social facilities for dorm men.
In spite of a hue and cry, he recommended that academic
standards for Student Government aspirants be raised. This
proposal was later acknowledged as a good measure by most
people who were affected.
Sanders was successful on the home front in clearing up
some of the nebulous parts of the Honor System and in pro
moting a mutual understanding among the campus Honor
Working with the Dean of Students, he tried to get more
social and study facilities for the new H Dorm, but due to a
misunderstanding on the value of social rooms in general,
the proposal was not taken up.
In his Work with the legislature, Sanders, through his
executive agencies, recommended several bills, among them
the Student Business Plan, which became the law of the
campus. The Plan was designed to promote more beneficial
relations between town merchants and students.
Perhaps one of Sanders' most notable achievements was
his ability to land new people into student government and
provide future leaders for the campus. This past year many
new faces have made appearances on the governing scene
and these men and women are developing into great poten
tial for the coming years.
It is important that we view these accomplishments with
the facts in mind that there was a great apathy among stu
dents toward student government and campus problems, that
there was little to work with in financial respects, and that
occasionally a backward trend in attitudes had to be met.
Through a well organized executive branch, a cool and ef
ficient manner, this leader from Four Oaks has come through
with much and paved the way for future successful ventures
in Student Government endeavors. W.M.D.
Editorial orchids this week go to Larry Botto and the
Student Council for their excellent and impartial work. Botto,
the first student ever to be re-elected as chairman of the
council, has served during his administration, and will con
tinue to serve during next year in an objective and impartial
He, more than any other single individual, must be held
responsible for the success of the judiciary since it was set
up under the constitution of 1946. He has worked out a mass
of procedural and judicial details. He has let the supreme
court of this campus its present dignity and fearlessness.
He has made it a body truly deserving of respect.
His excellent work has been recognized by two leading
student organizations the Golden Fleece and the Order of
the Old Well.
We add our orchids to theirs.
Staff orchids this week go to Rolfe Neill, who was elected
President of the North Carolina Collegiate Press Association
last week and received their top award for news writing.
Neill's prize story was a description of the mob fight fol
lowing the Wake Forest game last. fall, but judges acclaimed
the overall excellence and liveliness in marking his ne.ws
We've known he was good all along. We're glad everybody
else does now.
United States National Stu
dent Association is the Voice of
American Students. Back in 1946
the United States was asked to
send 25 delegates to Praque to
the founding conference of the
International Union of Students.
The University of North Caro
lina was one of 15 universities in
the United States asked to send
4 Jimmy Wallace, by a margin
of one vote, was selected as the
Carolina representative on the
United States delegation. When
the delegation returned to
America, it was cognizant of
the fact that no organization
existed in America whereby the
students could voice their opin
ions on local, national or inter
national affairs as a unit.
It was through this obvious
need for such an organization
that the USNSA was organized.
The University of North Caro
lina, represented by Jimmy Wal
lace, took an active part in the
formation of NSA. It is to Caro
lina's credit that it has always
taken the lead in NSA, and that
Jimmy Wallace was chairing the
assembly when the NSA became
a reality in December 1946.
Since that time the American
student has come into possession
of a strong voice throughout the
World through NSA. It is a large
organization today being made
up of 325 colleges and universi
ties and representing over 800,
000 students. This one fact about
NSA shows its value and the
necessity of the University of
North Carolina to continue its
leadership in the Association.
Just as last year, the Regional
National Student Association
meeting is being held here at
Carolina. Ann Sulzberger, chair
man of the local NSA, said 97
schools have been invited to the
Regional May 4-6. It is not
known just how many schools
will send delegates, but regard
less of the number of schools
represented, the students are
exercising their right to assem
ble and he heard, in the final
analysis, over the face of ' the
Here at Carolina it seems that
students do not have even a
complete knowledge of NSA. If
one were to take time out, look
around, ask a few questions
about the Association, he could
see concrete examples of work
done on this campus through the
organization. Two big projects
on campus have been the Cur
riculum and Faculty Evalua
tions. At the present, NSA is
sponsored a First Aid Class. The
Campus Chest, which all of us
realize is very valuable to the
campus, is also a NSA pi'oject.
Orientation here has received
many solutions to its problems
over the past few years of tri
bulation. Since Orientation has
become more efficient, new stu
dents are indoctrinated with the
Carolina way of life, the Honor
System, and what is expected of
them. Most of our information
a"d assistance from NSA has
been-bn old projects such as
Orientation, finance, publica
tions, court structure, honor sys
tem, and student administration.
We as Americans always want
something concrete or we think
that the organization at work is
valueless. National Student As
sociation has given us something
concrete, but the VALUE OF
NSA IS FOUND IN CONTACT
AT LOCAL, NATIONAL, AND
The NSA Congress, which is
held each year on some college
or university campus, is the
meeting ground and distribution
point of ideas and ideals. In the '
"Congress Report" of the 1950
Congress, it was brought out
that "the significance of the Con
gress rests in part with the pro
gram and policy emphasis and
the direction set for the national
Staff, (but) a deeper, more pro
found meaning can be discern
ed when the Congress is viewed,
not as a legislative bodyj but as
a laboratory situation. .for test
ing of stereotypes and ideas and
the development of attitudes.
Students can create ideas and
ideals that are imaginative and
Students of the University of
North Carolina should be proud
of the record it has in connection
with NSA. Carolina should be
proud of such men as Al Low

NSA, Bill Miller, Jesse Ded
mond, Bill Mackie, Ben Jones,
John Sanders, Banks Talley,
Dick Murphy, Jim Lamm, Kash
Davis, Fred Crawford and Herb

Adverse opinions taking the
form of uncalled for blasphemy

column. Dan Duke, Jerry Jones

a field day after reading my ar

tramped up and down the field
throwing irreverant, ignoble,
hard-rock propogandistic clinch

though white externally, are
black at heart and should be al
lowed to run wild without some
inhibitory influence being exert

criticism, allow me to question
your editorial judgement. "Congo-boy,"

you would not have printed it.

future blood-letters that might
appear like that indecent type
written by the above "Three
die-hard Unionists", I demand
a personal apology or extradic
tion north of the Mason-Dixon
line to the proper institutions.
I want to reiterate, for the
benefit of the reader, that I
spoke only on behalf of the re
jected, qualified Carolina pre
med students. In doing so, I pro
posed a solution to the Commit

it might someday materialize in

The French Theater of the University present
ed "Knock", a comedy by Jules Romains, at
the Playmakers Theater last evening. The per
formance will be repeated tonight.
The play is about- a charlatan who takes over -the
unprofitable practice of a rural physician. He
makes the villagers believe that Medicine is
essential, that it represents a new, miraculous
way of life. Knock "is determined to be a doctor,
and he becomes a medical apostle. His career in
St. Maurice is an amusing comment upon the
spiritual poverty of this century, which manu
factures gods from frauds, political as well as
medical, and accepts any system which provides
the semblance of universality.
The play is reminiscent of Moliere; Knock is
a type as much as he is an individual. The "mal
ades" whom he treats 'are as varied and as typed
as the characters in French classical comedy. They
include an elderly and healthy peasant woman, a
muscular young man, a nervous schoolmaster,
and an insipid and vacuous woman of position. "
The illness which overcomes even the vigorous

chairman of NSA here, saying,
"It is not going to be an easy
task for I do not believe I have to
point out how much Chapel Hill
is looked to for leadership with
in the Association and by the
student movement, generally."
NSA is performing its intend

University of North Carolina
and throuughout the World.
Your voice, through NSA, is

ment for his practice is symptomatic, for Ro
mains, of the insecurity of all his characters.
Only Knock is safe, for the ruling passion is his
creation, and he is not subject to it.
Many of the individual scenes of the play are
very amusing. The consultations in the second
act provide 'several opportunities for excellent
comic business, and Josephine Sharkey, Dick
Lewis, Claude Rayborn and Kenneth Stuckey
make the most of them.
The audience applauded the magnificent auto
mobile which conveys Dr. Knock to St. Maui ice
in Act I. This scene is so sound that one sus
pects it was the inspiration of Thornton Wilder's
"The Happy Journey," but it illustrates the prin
cipal fault of the play.
The structure' is episodic; there are almost ho
group scenes. As a result the play fails to at
tain a real climax. Its highest moment is when
Knock points out the 250 beds filled with 250
patients which are the result of his short career.
