Whitley currently is editor of the alumni newsletter of Lambda Chi Alpha social fraternity, of which he is secretary and representative to the Interfratemity Council. In his announcement today, Whit ley issued the following statement: "I regret that 1 have been unable ta be a member of the Tar Heel staff in the past as I have had to work due to financial difficulties. But with that problem now out of the way, I desire to put my experi ence to. use. There may be an ad vantage in this, however. "I believe that it lies in the realm oi possibUity that a newcomer to the system may be able to spot its defects quicker than a person who has been very familiar with it. 'In my experience with publica uons, i nave acquired a general knowledge of all phases of newspa per work. I further feel that print ing expencenee can be of extreme value to an editor." A newspaper should not only keep its readers well-informed, but should also be attractive in appearance. "I feel the editorial page of the campus newspaper should concern itself primarily with local issues, and that the editor should confine most of his energy to crusade for those improvements which would be beneficial to the University and its students.'

Ar chie, Dean of the College and Pro fessor of French, Wake Forest Col lege, and Dr. Marguerite Roberts, Dean and Professor of English, Westhampton College. The panel was sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Women. Scparte Sexes Dr. McBride stated that the sex es should be separated for educa tion. "A woman's college can build up fields that women are interest ed in better than a coed school." It is her belief that in coed schools. men usually run the student af fairs. "In women's schools there is an opportunity for women to take an active part in the running of af fairs." 'The education of males is bel ter when they are separated from Banquet At Inn Begins Full-Week Symposium Opposing Views Dr. Archie took an opposing view in stating that coed schools are belter. "There are social, psycho logical, and intellectual advantages in a coed school." In commenting on the intellectual advantages, he said, "Women have been the best students. In a sense, women are the Dace setters. . . . men learn from women." He said that women can absorb facts better and can shoot back straight answers better. "Men, on the other hand, are bolder and come up with more in teresting and perhaps truer an swers." He concluded that there fore there is an improvement in discussions when men are includ ed. Dr. Roberts took a "middle of the road" view in explaining co ordinate colleges, in which there is a woman's college with coed as pects. She stated, however, that there is a fuller life in a co-ordinate r a coed school. Dr. McBride expressed the sen timents of the whole panel when she said, "We r.hould mak tho best use of ell typ of our institution By DAVIS YOUNG and MARY ALYS VOORHEES Sunday night at Carolina Inn 175 invited guests attended the first official function of the 1958 Carolina Symposium when they sat in on a banquet given in hon or of Gov.

A member of the paper staff this year, Miss Frye has served as assistant news editor. In a statement released yester day, she said: ."Any prospective candidate for the editorship of The Daily Tar Heel necessarily must let the vot ers know exactly what his philos ophy of journalism and of The Tar Heel is. The candidate must also expound on these ideas, insofar as the current Tar Heel administra tion is concerned, and future plans for improving the paper. "The type journalism I subscribe to and would try to uphold on The Daly Tar Heel contains those high principles that were supported by Adolph Ochs of The New York Times when, in the face of the successful but outrageous Hearst and Pulitzer 'yellow journalism' ia the 1890's, he retained the Times' tradition for accurate and adequate coverage and comment. "The present administration of The Daily Tar Heel has maintain ed a high degree of accuracy and adequacy in the news and edi torials. If elected editor, I would endeavor to retain the example already set and to instill these ideals in all permanent members of the staff and the turn-over staff that is a common occurrence. Must Set Example "The editor of the paper must set the example of good journalism himself before he will ever be able to realize a paper which is ttinwn for its rnrrprt nnrt cnm- plete news coverage. ivo it is tnat rash promises, which I could make during this campaign, are far less important in determining whether I'll make a good editor, than will be my act ual performance in that office. "As I have hinted, good editor ship depends upon: 1) events dur ing the editor's term of office and the manner in which he approaches these events, 2) the issues that de velop and the research and event ual stand taken by the editor, and 3) coordination of the staff with sound leadership that is evident through the editor's good perform ance in the first two aspects men tioned. "Since I have concluded that the good editor is determined 'ab solutely after having been elect ed, then to determine 'relatively' before the election whether he (See Ann Frye page 3) Beaux Art Ball Plans Contest Cowley Declares Need Of Literature For Man Student Party Postpones Editorship Endorsement The Student Party in a special voted to postpone endorsement of a candidate for editor of The Daily Tar Heel until the regular Party meeting next Meaiday night.
