He said no student of - faculty

rational terms. Hand after nana

Saturday classes prooauiy Dy September are the ulti
mate result of a resolution passed yesterday by the Univer
sity Trustees' Executive Committee.
The committee passed the resolution by a majority even
after two top academic officials reported that a recent in
quiry at UNC indicated the predominant sentiment among
faculty, students and administrative officers was against any
change. Consolidated President Gordon Gray and Chancellor
Robert B. House spoke for the University.
The resolution does not specify a date for the institution
of Saturday classes, but directs the Administration to present
at the next committee meeting or at a called meeting a rec
ommended plan for use of Saturday morning time.
Officials here speculated it would be at least September
before the plan could be effected because of the multiplicity
of changes involved.
The committee's resolution said it favored the principle
of Saturday classes -for undergraduates as well as graduate
and professional students at each of the three institutions of
the University. Carolina now has Saturday classes for law,
medical and public health students. Both Woman's College
and State College, the Consolidated University's other branch
es, have Saturday classes for all students.
Carolina could be expected to maintain its quarter system
under a six-day plan, UNC officials explained, just add an
extra half day of class each week.
It was not reported who introduced the resolution, but it
is known that Trustee Victor Bryant Sr. of Durham has been
one of the leading protaganists of six day classes here. When
contacted by The Daily Tar Heel by phone at his home last

It must, as a matter of form, submit to the board a report of
all its activities.
Student Body President Ham Horton said when told of the
Saturday class action:
"We are stunned to hear the summary decision of the Ex
ecutive Committee, a decision made without warning or con
sultation of faculty and students and in direct controvention
to the decision made by the Trustees only recently.
"Student government is opposed to the Executive Com
mittee's decision. We can make no further comment at this
The Executive Committee met in Raleigh yesterday in the
office of Gov. Kerr Scott. Ironically, it was Governor Scott's
last meeting of the group of which he is chairman ex-officio.
The committee meets regularly four times yearly in Feb
ruary, May, September and November.
The issue of Saturday classes, long a teaser for student
bristle-raising, was dead for
last spring. However, it was put off by the Executive Com
mittee until September then carried over from that meeting
to yesterday's meeting.
Many Trustees have argued that students leave Chapel
Hill on the weekends to the neglect of their studies and cam
pus activities. The Carolina "mass exodus" was reported to
be a myth by a Dean of Woman's Office survey released last
May. The survey was conducted in dormitories, sororities
and fraternities to find out just why students go home on the
"Going home to rest" was given by both coeds and men
as the "most important" single reason for leaving Chapel Hill.
Men students rated "attending a football game" highest on
the list of out-of-town trips.
Both men and coeds again agreed studying ranked highest
in importance of the weekend activities at Chapel HilL Ath
letics, fraternity and University events were chosen next in
"The weekend seems to be a catching-up time with many
students dependent on the extra study time to pass. Extra
sleeping on each day and socializing a few hours each day
round out the weekend," the report asserted.
The report concluded "Our students do not leave the cam
pus each weekend en masse; our students need the weekend
for study and relaxing activities."
