You are so very right when you
say that Coach Jim Hickey is
taking a "bum rap." You are so
right when you say that the hang
ing of Jim Hickey in effigy by a
small group of Carolina students
was not only in poor taste but
also a most uncalled for act.
Jim Hickey is a great coach.
The University and the students
should consider themselves kicky
to have had a man on . the staff
who possessed the ability to take
over and do such an outstanding
jcb in the most difficult of all
situations. Coach Hickey had lit
tle time to prepare for this sea-,
son. As a matter of fact, he had
only a little over one month; thus,
he had to follow another's plans.
He was forced to follow in the
footsteps of one of the greatest
and most colorful coache.s that
college football has ever known.
This is not an easy role. Some
expected him to be a "Jim Ta
tum" and then some. They ex
pected him, on the basis of pre
season prediction, to magician
and to possess a magic bag of
tricks that would enable the Tar
Heels to go through the season
with an almost perfect record.
What proof do we have to back
up the pre-season prediction that
Carolina would have done belt el
even under Tatum? Let's face
fact. Carolina was overrated at
the beginning cf the season.
I was a great admirer of Coach
Jim Tatum. 1 followed him and
his teams as long as 1 followed
football itself. He was truly one
of iootball's greats who will nev
er be forgotten. I know that if
Jim Tatum could have had one
wish before he died it would have
been to coach this year. I also
know that if he could have se
lected the man best fit to succeed
himself he would have selected
We have a great coach in Jim
Hickey. His former records prove
this. His very presence on the
great Tatum's staff would mean
alone that he is of the select in
the coaching field because every
coach on a Tatum stall has to be
Jim Tatum once sjiJ, "Winning
isn't the most important thing,
it's the only thing!" That's' true,
and no student can truthluhy uy
that Jim Hickey hasn't tries! to win
every game. A coach can show
a' player what to do aivj how to
do it. He can't play himself as
much as he would like to do so
Today (Nov. 12 I read about
the "Harry-Highs" who tried to
hang Coach Hickey in effigy after
the, UNC-Miami game. I didn't
know that this had happened and
I can certainly understand why a
thing of this sort would be kept
quiet. It's grand to know that
there , are those in our Student
Body who are' so eager for vic
tory; however, it is sad indeed to
see such eagerness turned into
wickedness. The people who tried
this deed must be warped individ
uals who were spoiled as children
and who, I'm afraid will surely
carry this spoiled attitude through
life if they don't grow up.
I rather suspect that if their
efforts had been channeled in the
direction of attending the game
instead of sitting beside a TV set
or engaging in idle conversation
over beer at some bar their dis
appointment would have been a
little more heallhy, shall we say.
I'll say any day that Coach
Hickey has done a good job and
1 know I'm not by myself in this
belief. I think he deserves more
than we're dealing him and the
sooner the trouble-makers on cam
pus accept the fact that "you
can't win 'em all," there'll be no
more of these childish and imma

In thrilling region of thick-ribbed

obstacle are rather poor. The politicians, hunched
in dark rooms filled with the stench of cigars, sour
whiskey, and the special smell of politicians, are
determining the fate of this country and if the ffte
is Nixon because he looks like a better vote-getter,
hen Nixon we shall have.
Recently Gov. Rockefeller has been on the West
Coast, talking mainly to college groups but at the
same time definitely testing his strength with the
politicians. The odds are that whether or not he will
make a formal run depends on how he feels about
his West Coast welcome. At the moment it does not
look very strong, and he knows that he will need
the West. On Saturday the Governors of Idaho,
and Montana gave their informal support to Nixon.
Only one of these seemed to feel any possibility that
his state's electorate might not support this feeling.
In Oregon and California Rockefeller has been
faced with people conspicuously wearing Nixon but
tons. Reports say that he has made a dent in the feel
ings of the populace, but has not swayed any of the
professionals. The real test of his strength will come
in he spring when and if he decides to have a run

campaign, has come out decisively on a number of
interesting and important issues. He is extremely
interested in expanding his state interest in bomb

Russia; has has recommended greatly expanding
national educational expenditures; he has suggested

Mr. Nixon, on the other hand, has been a little
more content to rest on his vice-presidential laurels.
He is a good man, and might make a capable presi

If the nation is going to be forced to tolerate
the Republicans for another four years, and it daily
appears more and more so, then let us all fervently
hope that we are going to be blessed with Governor
Rockefeller. He seems the better man.
To Your Good Eye, Mr. Smith
The use of the Daily Tar Heel
to air one's views is indeed the
backbone of journalistic freedom.
But when one airs his views he
accepts the responsibility of pro
per consideration toward the
reader. The "statement" of Mr.
Smith on the Freshman Legisla
ture did not, in my opinion, re
ceive such thought.
The "statement" by Mr. Smith
concerning a Freshman Legisla
ture was literally riddled with
ambiguities and sweeping general
opinions. There was a noticeable
lack of facts to support the opin
ion expressed. He dwells on the
"countless positions , . . available
to Freshmen," yet fails to enu
merate one single position. I got
the impression that the author
was not adequately informed.
I myself am a candidate for
Vice-President of the Freshman
class. Thereiore I have concerned
myself with this issue also. I
have spent a considerable number
of hours in discussion with Robin
Britt, the author of the bill, and
with qualified members of the
Student Legislature as to whether
this bill solves the existing prob
lem lack of Freshmaji represen
tation in Student Government.
Broad statement's, like Mr.
Smith's, are not in order. I am
concerning myself with the ques
tion of whether the bill wilsolve
the problem, and whether this
Freshman Legislature will provide
efficient representation for this
class and for classes who follow
us. I urge a cross-section of Fresh
men, regardless of sex, residence,
or affiliation to express their opin
ions to me and to my fellow running-mates.
This problem merits objective
and specific study due to its seri
ousness. I am sure that in the fu
ture it will receive nothing less

HCW DOES ONE BEGIN A REVOLUTION
(from Ishmael Boodleheim's "The Key to Chaos"
The first step in having your own revolution is
not, as one might suspect, having a thing to revolt
against, but is instead having a thing to revolt for.
It you are for something, it does not matter what
else yew are against, but if you are only against
something, it doesn't really help too much unless
you have something to supplant it. Therefore one
must have a cause without a cause, rebellion can
be most frustrating. The specific cause is better
kept as something lofty, for less exalted causes such
as bringing back Bella Darvi soon bring storms of
ridicule upon the revolter. Easing the suffering 01
humanity is always an excellent cause, and there is
always room for diverse manifestations of revolution
with this cause in mind. Of course my example of a
trivial cause may well ease suffering too, but that
Once a noble cause has been decided upon, the
revolt must be organized (see my chapter on an
archy). This is the key step, for a revolution must
have leaders. Then, the fun begins in earnest as
you attempt to put into practice several of the re
volting principles I have already discussed. If you
are a college student, one suggestion for gaining
practice is to organize your own panty raid. Even
in the fall or winter. This can be most rewarding.
but even in this type of revolt against authority,
one must bear in mind the fact that it cannot be
handled in slipshod fashion or done half-heartedly.
You must storm those dorms with everything you
have, and fight to achieve your goal. When this prac
tice revolt is done, sit down quietly and try to find
what went wrong.
