Paradox In Conveniences
Contributing Editor Louis Graves of The Chapel Hill Weekly,
whose editorial appears further down in this column, has been wrestling
hard for several weeks about the parking problem at the Raleigh-Durham
Mis battle has not gone unnoticed. Several North Carolina news
papers have agftied with him that free parking at the airport is in rotten
condition and that short-term parking near' the administration building
(as when you stop to unload a
friend and the friend's luggage)
is impossible to get.
The airport does offer nearby
parking for a price. The free
parking can be had several hun
dred feet away from the administra
tion building, in a muddy lot un
attended by any sort of police of
ficers. The airport itself, which is a
credit to Eastern North Carolina
progress, is z. fine and ultra-convenient
addition to this area. It
serves many Chapel Hillians as
well as folks from Raleigh and
Durham. As recognition of this
fact, one of the major airlines has
installed a straight telephone wire
from its airport reservation office
THE CHAPEL HILL WEEKLY:
to the Chapel Hill telephone ex
change. Now folks here can call
the reservation desk without paying
long distance tolfs.
But, fine as the airport itself may
be, the parking situation is awful.
It compares quite well with the
University's parking problem along
S. Columbia St.
The airport does not pay proper
attention to the people who drive
out to meet friends, or who leave
their automobiles at the airport
while they leave the area on flights.
The airport offers attended park
ing onlv for those who like to pay
unusually high rates.
It's bad that a little thing like
automobile parking can be such
a smear on a fine piece of progress.
Thieves Find It Good Prey

Wednesday morning in the Raleigh

at Harvard University, was pub

This is the age of technology.
The scientist and the engineer
have revolutionized industry by
their miracles of research and
invention, and have given us a
physical well-being that is the,
envy of the world.
I have the deepest admiration
for these achievements, and. for
1 the part that specialized educa
tion has played in bringing them
But I fear that as a nation we
Americans are in danger of
yielding to technical hypnosis.
We behave at times as though
we believe that all problems
. can be resolved by the pro
cesses of physical research and
the application of engineering
The lesson of my own busi
ness experience is that this is
not so. and the art of manage
ment, even in an industry that
rests for its success on the
achievements of the scientist and
the engineer, requires a broadly
I hold the view that a gsneral
education is sound preparation
for a career in business, and I
am unhappy when most of the
voices that I hear about me in
the business world are lifted in
praise of specialized education
There is, no doubt but that the
scientists are having their inn
ings and, there is danger, it seems
to me, J that; Education will get
top-heavy i ; with technology.
' 'I 'am told ' ithat the 'great ship ,:
3ueen Mary" Mists perceptibly
' when all the passengers rush . to ',
the port side, and all that I ask
is that education be kept in trim,
between these two major aspects
of our, intellectual disciplines.
Sit by the desk of the chief
officer of a large company as
the day goes along and see what
type of problems come across
his desk. Few there will be in
the field of management that can
be solved by reference to physi-
, cal standards, or by the labora
tory method of analysis and test-
Most of the problems would
be just the same had the atom
never been split. They require
not knowledge of the nature of
matter, but a clear mind, the
power of logical analysis, wis
dom born of experience, and a
talent for communication.
Each day there will be at
least one that deals with econom
ics. The timing of a plant ex
pansion, for example, or the
carrying through of a complex
financial program, require an
intimate understanding of the
functioning of our national econ
omy, while the implications of a
proposed new tax, or the infla
tionary trend of governmental.
policies are approached - only
through understanding of the
principles of economics.
Clearly these are subjects
which cannot be learned in a
laboratory. They are seldom well
understood by young men grad
uating in engineering.
As the day goes forward for
the executive, continuously he
will be face to face with the
great new discovery of this gen
eration ef business men. By this
I do not mean rfnuclear fission

these frontiers of science have

at all for them in advance,
their hope lies in general edu

At every point to which the
business executive turns in his
work, he senses the necessity
for the ' adequate communica
tion .of ideas. Each hour of the
day, from the humblest fore
man to the chief executive of
the company, the person bearing
responsibility must engage in
telling others what to do and
how to do it. The business man
today must be able to write and
speak the English language with
clarity and felicity, or stand
aside and let his chair be oc
cupied by someone who can. '
The communication of ideas
is obviously a function of general
education. One learns the effec
tive use of the written word by

of leadership require the culti
vation of the resources that are
to be found in liberal education.
We read continuously of the.
tremendous advance which Russia
is making in the training of
engineers and scientists. It now
seems to be accepted that their
technical graduates outnumber
ours each year and, although the
quality of the training of these
young men is not altogether
clear, there is much evidence to
believe that it is noteworthy.
I share the general concern
over this phenomenon, but I
must point out that nowhere
have I heard Russia boast of
the increase in the number of
graduates she is turning out in
the liberal arts.

Achilles heel of the Communist

least, and the one which causes
him his deepest anxieties, and
calls forth his greatest effort.
The executive has no escape
from dealing also with group
problems. He finds that the mass
behavior of human beings dif
fers in many startling ways from
the actions of the same people
when seen as individuals..
It seems to me altogether
clear that knowledge of metal

So it seems to me likely that
when the modern business man
emerges from his present per
iod of introspection and senses
to the full his own inadequacy
for the responsibilities of lead

will turn back to general educa

physical welfare of mankind by
scientific inquiry, but he will

Let us not relax for one mo

of our scientific inquiry, or the

equal enthusiasm the values that
lie in a general education, and

On Summing Up
The. past few weeks have been banner-weeks
for student participation on the editorial page of
their paper. AstI am now more-or-less a sideline
observer, I can say that the staff of The Daily Tar
Heel is very pleased with the response the stu
dents have been contributing.
It is also an indication that the students are
reading the paper. This, too, is gratifying to the
folks who spend their afternoons putting out a
There are several schools of thought on sub
jects such as religion. One is that it's a subject
that is too controversial and too personal to bo
discussed; and another is that it is something that
should be discussed to make people think.
Now whether or not the people who discuss
such topics really think is a subject for debate la
its own right. But let's not discredit the participat
ing students on The Daily Tar Heel edit page . . .
they've made a definite step in the right direction.
It would appear that discussions on religion
must of necessity be dealt with largely in terms
of personal prejudices and empirical experience.
And sarcasm or heated arguments rarely change
a person's mind . . . but they might open a dour
for new thoughts.
Personal experience is the deadliest source of
prejudice that exists, I think. I think this because

tions which we have made from our own un
fortunate incidents. If we have been told that we
should hate certain people or groups of people,
it is hard to unlearn. But it seems to me that is
harder to unlearn the things which we have learn
ed "the hard way," or by our own efforts.
As an example, suppose you lived next door
to a Jewish family at one time in your life. You
remember that they were the most despicable pcoplo
you have ever known. Itis hard not to let that
association spread to others of the same race, or
Likewise, suppose you had known a '-good"
Baptist who went to church every Sunday and was
a deacon in the church. This all looked very nice,
but you happened to know that he was doing
little bootlegging on the side. Then he's a hypo
crite, and it's hard not to smile a nasty, smug, self
assured smile to yourself everytime you hear de
vout, church-going Baptists mentioned.
The Catholics are always good for a load of
prejudice buckshot. Imagine, buying absolutioiv
And of course, fveryone knows that tthat'sjuhat it

inese are mings we au ininK av some umc ui
other if we'll be honest with ourselves of course,
not these very same thoughts, but along the .same
line. I suppose it's what they call human natun.
But we have to live with each other, and prob
ably the vast majority of the time our impious
thoughts are lost in the shadow of the struggle
we wage for subsistence. However, the prefession
ally prejudiced person cannot be discounted.. Ke
is always aware of his supremacy, and never is to
busy to tell you about it.
We can never really be sure about how the
other fellow feels, and he is not too likely to pen
up all the way to tell you about his feelings in de
tail. But there is this 'to consider: every person
has a religion of some kind or other, and that
is the thing which governs the things , he does and
the way he thinks.
My own idea is that to know a person well you
must first know what his religion is, for it will
affect everything he does, and by knowing this

be more tolerant of his shortcomings.
So before you begin to berate another fellow
for his beliefs and become too firm in your con
viction that he is all wrong, and elevate your own
ego in the process, stop and think. How would you
like to be treated? Would you like for others to
respect your beliefs, even though they are dif
ferent from your own.
Good old "Christian Charity" enters the pic
ture, too. But I would prefer not to consider it as a
virtue which was reserved for Christians. It, too.
is a part of the great idea of doing for others a
you Avould have them do for you. It takes a big
man to be consistently tolerant and generous in
And truly, such a man is a godly man, even
if he professes atheism. For if he is a big man in
this respect, he is observing the greatest of all
laws, qoing his way and letting you go yours.
Stand by your guns, to be sure, but never fire
on another man just for the sheer joy of filling h.a
beliefs full of holes. I believe in a great equalizing
process that I can't explain and won't attempt to.
but I believe it exists. Everybody gets his own, or.
to quote the "Good Book:"
"As ye sow, so shall ye reap.'
The iconoclast, or image-breaker, will some day
wallow- in his own disillusionment. ' ,
Coeds Alleged Change
V.'hen I came here as a freshman last fall, I had
never seen such a pretty sight in mv life as all
those beautiful coeds.
But now when I come back after Christmas
holidays, all the beauty is gone. They don't care
what clothes they 'wear anymore, and their faces
nave lost that fresh look.
What is it with these girls? I'm going to start
going to Duke, even if I have to thumb rides.
