Read If And Find Out By WALT SCHRUNTEK In a few short weeks, the offices of The Daily Tar Heel will be invaded by coeds bent on the ea-y task (some diink) of publishing a newspaper. Women, asserting an increasing drive for equality a"nd then some ir a "Man's World" (pardon the misnomer, please) will avail them selves of an opportunity to soil manicured hands with snarled type writer ribbon and smudges of printers ink. They will come to the task before them dedicated knowing futl well that they can and will put out a better paper than their .mis guided and inefficient predecessors. . ' They will come filled with confidence that they can reorganize the apparent confusion of publishing a newspaper. They will bring order to chaos. x , Their heads will be swirling with ideas for improvement and their crusade will approach magnificance for they come to save j-urnal: vn! Indeed, the Summer Quarterly will be an instrument whereby a new and fresh approach to journalism can be expected. The highly efficient female will prove her worth she will show the doubters. Our coed newspaperwoman may enter a closer, more profound re lationship with the reading public, bringing it those intimate and sig nificant insights as 13 why Pres. Friday's wife wore blue at the Hio lory Banquet Sunday when Mrs. William Aycock dressed in aqua--narinc. ' , She may lash out editorially for the necessity of painting South Building a deeper orange next year, reasoning that the trees are ex pected to bloom a paler green according to prominent biologists from our own Botany Department. She may (occasionally) ace some need to take a stern measure to the summer school crowd which is notorious for its beach-party attitude, arguing apathy and sheer laziness (tch, tch). She may (and some of us shudder at this thought) decide to estab lish character in the unkept, untidy offices of the Tar Heel. Flower- j filled va-es,. pictures artistically hung and white-frill curtains would hardly be inconceivable innovations to the feminine mind. She may do these and more (space limits further conjecture on i the subject) but we who leave these offices to return again the fall, leave respecting and admiring her nevertheless. We leave with some apprehension too, lest these efficient young women do prove their superior worth lest their crusade does- succeed. We go in fear (some of us) for our jobs, for what if they do suc ceed? What if they do save journalism and raise it from the "bed of inefficiency in which it has rested so complacently?" What if, after all, we have been wrong these many years? What calamity. What disillusionment. What fantasy . . . What rot. Miss Still The PercyX".

Ragsdale stated that "student government has reached heights not heretofore attained. The cheat- ing ring is gone, and I hope, for good. We have purged ourselves of that which cannot exist side-by-side with honesty. Cases have been fewer this year."
