t This University is sometimes slow ; to recognize academic
.worth. ' -
It has recognized the contributions of the Journalism Foun
dation by establishing a School of Journalism two years ago.
It rewarded other private efforts with independence and
academic honors in establishing the School of Pharmacy and
the new School of Business Administration.
But ' in that field where the efforts pi private individuals,
their self-sacrifice, and their unstinting generosity have been
greatest, it has behaved with an arrogance ill-suited to a
xWe are speaking, of course, of the football field.
The administration only recently asserted that the Athletic
Association "is not an educational facility," in a peevish ef
fort to maintain subordination of these men to the University's
Somehow, -the Educational Foundation, best named of the
Foundations; has managed to raise the badly needed money
for the education of the special students in their care.
No other school,' no other department can offer so much
to the students. In that field of humanistic endeavor which
has the support not of an interested minority but of every
red-blooded North Carolinian not of a few private dona
tions, but of the cuff link and pin money of all the patriotic
citizens of this our great state a vigorous and deserving in
stitution already exists. - -
True, it has an inconsiderable library. But then so does
the University on this side of Raleigh Road. , Say "what you
will about a progressive administration, a well-trained faculty,
a library under construction. The backbone of the University,
and the factor on which its relative excellence depends is
- the students who constitute it. .
And no department, no school in this university can afford
to go to such lengths and breadths to procure its students.
Outstanding .young men are spied out anpl-summoned from
all over the land. They come, seeking expert guidance and
the greased palm of glory. In turn, it is they in the end, and
they alone who send the fame of our University flying across
the seas. We are confident' that any one of the 14 German stu
dents here this year, if asked why they came, would unhesi
tatingly reply, "Because you have the greatest football team
in the world' .
In addition, this group boasts the highest" paid faculty in
the University. Furthermore, the man at the head of these
earnest educators, so revered by his students that he is called
"King;" has a salary equalled on the state payroll only by
that of the Governor.
We propose, therefore, that the University should cease

' Probably nothing at UNC is

It is not followed because
many instructors feel that they
can formulate a better one for
their particular courses; and it
certainly seems that an .instruc

lowing this line of thought many
instructors simply leave the stu

discretion. Others devise ways to
prevent cutting at all, by "pop
quizzes" and daily tests, even to
the point of cutting grades for
unexcused absences. There are
many policies in between the
two extremes- stated, and the
student generally finds that each
of his instructors has a different
idea of attendance discipline.

There is no good reason -why
an instructor should not be
allowed to set his own cut
system. If a man is capable of
teaching college students, he
should be able to govern the
attendance of his students.
Nevertheless, there will be the
misled individuals who think
they are teaching high school
students and try to -'rule with
an iron hand". These individuals
will be with lis regardless of any
- efforts. ' " T.-'.-r"
It seems ridiculous that stu
dents who pay good money to
come to college have to be forced
to come to class. It also seems
foolish that a student who can
get the benefit of a course by
attending . class only half the
time should be bored by attend
ing more than that. Of course,
no class should be taught so that
anyone except a super-genius
. could get the material and pass
without reasonable attendance.
Forced class attendance is de
vised for those students who use
the University as a playground,
lack the willpower to attend on
their own, and must be forced
to come to class- in order to stay
at school any length of time.
