LetV Entertain Trustees
In An informative Manner
The idea ol having Carolina's lady trustees visit the campus lor a
coupletof days is r very jjfood one. It is so ood that a similar visit should
be arranged soon lor male members of the Hoard of Trustees.
About the only contact most trustees have with the student body
is a stilted, formal one that , comes vhei the Visiting Committee visits.
A lew minutes ?re allotted fur the students, and student leaders and the
Visiting Committee subcommittee haeia Lenoir Hall meal and shoot'
formal bull for a little while and
then it 'is -over. The students rush what Samuel Magi II,-' director of
bark home and take off" their ties student activities, called a "crisis"
in student leadership; it also neg-
lectcd the homosexual problem the
I'niversity is facing, the increas
ing pressure of South Huilding up
on student freedoms, the fact, that
men are st: ; ked three to a room in
many dormitories, ihat workers in
Lenoir Hall are gel ting-a raw deal
from the I'niversity instead of de
cent payment, that there are quite
a lew freshmen here who have oars
illegally iti Chapel Hill, that fra
ternity haing still goes-on. and lit
tle is being done to stop it, that
students ate being thrown into this
machine-like Cniveiity system and
tinned loose to get out the best

All members of the committee

Although Bob, Young is by far

If you have at last decided that
you too wish to join the growing
ranks of the . campus pseudos,
this is for you. But before we
come dovm to a practical, dis-;
cussion of what it takes: let's
first examine the word.
There is a controversy as. to
how it should be pronounced.
Some hold for "pa-sway-do" or
'p-sway-do" as in "blue psuede-,
shoes." The majority "though
seem to favor 'Sue-dough."
'Anyway it's short for pseudo
intellectual. In other words, a
fUe or imitation intellectual.
. Now a necessary part of being
intellectual is having intelligence
In other words know something.
So a pseudo is a person who pre
tends to know something.
But, if he did know something,
he wouldn't have to pretend, so
he obviously knows nothing.
What's the point of all this? It
just goes to show that anyone
can be a pseudo.
If intelligence or knowledge
isn't required, the field Ls wide
open. You t?o can be a pseudo.
Don't let them tell you that you
have to be in AB.
Even Commerce men ought to
be able to fit the above require
ments. Now that you have made up
your mind, you will wonder just
how ym go about it Instead of
merely listing some rules. I am
going to give some examples of
the pseudo in action.
Suppose you walk into a group
end the conversation is about lit
erature. Don't think that the
fact that you stopped reading
when you finished the "Hardy
Boys" scries stops you.
Chances are the others stopped
with Raggedy Ann. Wait for an
opening and say something like.'
"What did you, think of Jean
Paul Sartre's last book?" 1 guar
antee that this will stop all but '
But just in case you run into
an old pro who comes back with
"Very interesting, but do you
think he really justifies his con
clusions?" all you have to do is
shrug your shoulders, say, "Oh
well, you know how those French
intellectuals are," and change
Another example. Suppose
the talk is about modern art.
Just say "Now take Picasso. Of
course his technique is excell
ent, but do you think he's real
ly 9t the spirit of art?" What
could anyone possibly say to a
remark like that?
One thing to remember. If
the majority likes something,
you are against it. The majority
can be referred to as the "peas
ants," the "herd," or "the great
unwashed." You can even take a
chance on "other-directed" which
has the added advantage that
they might not understand what
"other-directed people" are.
If they are foolish enough to
ask, just give them a withering,
"where have you been for the
last 18 years?" stare. They won't
press the point. A writer or art
ist who has made money is guilty
of "selling his soul for the al
Now that you have these few
hints, you ought to be able to
take it from there. Use your
imagination and you can come
up with dozens more genuine
If you want a simple rule, just
preface every, pontifical pro
nouncement with "Aristotle says
. . .'."' (Of course, if you are away
from the Dome you may want to
change it to "Nietzche says . . .
for the -sake of those who haven't
been exposed to the Aristotelian
. tradition.) , ; , . "
As far as clothes go, of course
you will dress in the. "Natural
Look." (Never, never use Ivy
League, unless you want to spoil
everything.) You might also, let
it be known . that .'.""I've been
dressing this way for years, and
how all of a sudden all the peas
ants are hopping on the band
wagon." (Be sure though that the
trunk containing your pegged
pants and Mr. B shirts from
freshman year is locked.)
There are other incidentals
that always' help, such as con
tempt for the so-called mass me
dia and so forth, but you ought
to be able to take it from there.

YOU Said It:
After witnessing the touching tribute paid last
Friday night to one of the University's "great"
men, I would like to make a few suggestions.
Men like Frank McGuire, through long years of
study and preparation, have given to Chapel Hill
a name that it deserves among the finest universi
ties in the country. There have been other men,
however, who through long unselfish devotion to
the student have made the classrooms of this camp
us an intellectual haven for students from every
state of the nation.
Therefore, may I suggest to our all too gener
ous alumni that a special fund be set up on behalf
of these professors.' Some kind of tribute,, whether
it be in the form of a four wheeled trophy cr
sealed envelope, or just a standing ovation from
the student body, should be presented after 20
years of servfee. - t
I say 20 years because I fully realize their in
abilities to accomplish the things that the great
strategist of Woollen Gym has done in his year
In conclusion I would like to quote the senator
who, addressing Dogpatch's citizens in the Broad

Government is spending 1 million dollars on one

earth. So show your appreciation.
