ctliforial from iie I iiiin.ui Horn
er: The new regulation allowing
unlimited cuts to those peions
attaining an acceptable average on
all their woi k at l'urman prior to
their junior vear is pet haps one
of the more progressive steps tak
en by the I'niversity in some- time.
To some members of the ad
ministration, it is a stepping stone
to telaxing an undesiied paternal
hold over the student bod v. Tor
vears students have cried longing
ly for more- responsibility. This is
the most advanced movement in
that direction vet.
Responsibility is a term often
misused. To some it means work,
haul woik, making of decisions,
and lack of sccuritv. To others it
means Ireedom from lestraint, a
challenge, a chance to use imag
ination. Whatever it means, the
new svstem is good good in the
lespect that it means i esponsibili
tv. the little t i hi of a student to do
what is best for him.
To have the ability to tccognie
and accept responsibility is a trait
unfamiliar to many college stu
dents. Manv abuse such freedom
. . . oiheis enjov it.
Although the new lobulation
a -v ill allect only a small portion of
the student body, it is hoped that
those allotted will not abuse the
piivilege. and thus allow a mote
relaxed svstem in the luture.
The addition of responsibility
to the l'urman curriculum is welcomed.
WISE AND OTHERWISE:
Of The Ingrate
Americana . . .
By Whit Whitfield
Only ' once in a generation do
truly great men like John Kasper
vnd (governor Orval Faubus arise
in American history. How fortun
ate can one country be?
To start our comments, let us
take John Rasper, self-styled Yan
kee rabble-rouser, and giant
among men. He is destined to go
down in history as one of the
truly great men of all time. There
can be no doubt about this. Words
do not come well enough to de
scribe this staunch defender of
"White Supremacy." and demago
gue of a thousand southern idiots
who follow him. And there must
be at least a thousand people in
the South who are that stupid, al
though Kasper and I both wonder
if there are really that manyi.
Just take a look at what he is
doing for the South. Not since the
days of the Civil War has the
South received so much publicity,
both nationally and internationally.
This is great for southern busi
ness. His tireless efforts in form
ing White Citizens Councils and
in bringing back the spirit of the
Ku Klux Klan arc a source of
wonder. Where does a man get
such strength? He is truly with
out peer in his realm of endeavor.
Word has it that he is being
considered for a Nobel Prize, but
we are inclined to believe that
a new category would have to be
added to include his kind.
Now let us praise another great
Governor Orval Faubus of
Arkansas. Few men have risen
from the oblivion of the executive
mansion of the State of Arkansas
to national prominence so rapid
ly and with so much publicity. As
a matter of fact, no one has.
His grandstand play was no
doubt used to garner him some
voters in the next gubernatorial
race. Little did he know that he
would almost have to get his state
to secede from the union and
declare war on the United Stales
to get out of this pinch. Now, what
wUl he do without his troops?
Capital publicity stunt I would
say. and darn good politics too.
lie did manage to save the True
South a bit of trouble however.
Now that he has lost out. our sis
ter southern states will be very
hesitant about seceding again. He
has probably helped us avert an
other Civil War.
That he has made the South look
more backward than ever is only
too evident. That he has given So
viet Russia a wealth of propogan
da to use against us is also too
evident. We do hope that he wins
back the voters which he pre
viously alienated, for it would
be ridiculous for him to lose the
next election after getting in all
of this mess, just to protect the
people of his state from "viol
ence.' And now the brave fool
is fighting for the rights of the
governor of a sovereign state and
states rights, neither of which
have existed since 1863. What a
brave man he is! How can we
help but admire him?
Much more could be said about
these two gentlemen, but space
will hardly permit. For that mat
ter, neither Mill the laws of propri-ety-or

indeed, had their dismissal for rea

As from the start, there are
still too many unanswered ques

the ouster? The professors have
requested a public hearing, and it
would seem if only the trio's

sons for dismissals were well
founded, that only the professors
would stand to lose from such a

Avard a workable solution to the
tangle which has been produced.
One of the more colorful expressions which I've
heard around this campus is usually said by'stu
dents"j ust before and just after a holiday, -weekend
or summer. The punctuation at the end de
pends on whether, it's before or after a lay-off from
"studies." Here it is: "
"Have a good summer?" said at the beginning
of the fall semester with a rising inflection and
a question mark at the end.
"HaTe a good summer." Said at the end of
school in May as you drive off in a convertible
headed for home with a descending note at the
end of the sentence and a period to denote either
a command or just a statement. I've never been
able to figure out if it is mandatory to have agood
summer or not.
"Have a good holiday," "Have a good weekend,"
with either question marks or periods after: them
are both equally colorful and quite useful at their
appropriate times. It saves much thinking on the
part of the greeter to have a ready-made greeting
to blurt out at the slightest provocation. None of
those old saying like, "Hi, how's it going?" for a
I hate a friend who frowns on these greetings
about as much as I do, and so w henever we meet we
generally try to make up original and , colorful
salutations such as "Hot enough for you?", if it's
hot, and ,cWet enough for you?" if it's wet. and
other silly things like that. Anything to amuse
My case rests as far as that is concerned.
There certainly were a flock of girls over from
Greensboro for the game. About five minutes be
fore game time, upwards to 20 busses come rollin'
through the gates by Woollen and parked down on
the intramural field and the women started pourin

ain't never seen such a crop in my life. Big ones,
fat ones, pretty ones, and some other kinds.
Most of them were having a little trouble with
their heels and everything, but on the whole, I was
duly impressed by the way they handled themselves.
One of the things I overheard:
"Which way is the woods?'' one giggling lady
said to her five young women companions, all of
whom were walking fast towards it.
"Oh, I mean which way to the stadium?"
"Tee, hee. tee, hee."
'Up in the woods, silly."
"Tee. hee. tee hee."'
Ah yes, it is another fine crop at old W C. this
The football game didn't impress me too much
and neither did the cheerleaders, although one thing

worn out and so is the team. Of course, all -we have

games certainly would be more enjoyable.

Eisenhower should "personally take those colored

But did any of the so-called "liberals" ever

the President of the United States take worktngmen
by the hand and lead them into plants and factories
where their right to work a basic constitutional
right is denied them?
NOR HAS THE governor of any state .come
forth with such a solution for the problem created
when labor unionism does what Congress is for
bidden to do abridge the freedom of the press un
der the color of law. "Collective bargaining" rights
and picketing powers are, of course, derived from
federal law. Yet none of the so-called "liberals'
has risen to protest the closing down of newspaper
plants in many cities through the establishing of
picket lines which labor unions that are not them
selves parties to the dispute refuse to cross. This
is a concerted action that deprives many thousands
of workers of their opportunity and right to work
and just as effectually denies freedom of the press

The California Federation of Labor is so stirred
up over the Little Rock situation that it has just
urged impeachment of President Eisenhower for not
taking forceful action of some kind to get the
colored children into the high school in Little

favor any forceful measures to enable hDnest. law
abiding white or colored workingmen to enter a
plant when there's a strike.
