THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION.
UNIVERSITY OF I0RTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, JANUARY, N.C.,21 1895.
A University Senate.
A few of the colleges in the coun
try have, as a part of their system
of government, a "college Senate.
When the spirit that led to the es
tablishment of this has been strictly
adhered to, the system has been
nronouced uniformly successful
I The Senate is usually composed o
the four undergraduate classes, each
class electing its own " representa
tives. The representation is some
thing like this: Four from the Se
nior class: three from the Junior
class; two from the Sophomore
and one from the Freshmen.
This Senate acts with the faculty
in governing the itstitution. There
are certain cases in which the above
has the authority to act and its de
cisions are unquestioned. Other
cases belong exclusively to the f ac
ulty, while those of a third class are
in the hands of both bodies acting
In an institution like the Univer
sity of North Caroliua, where the
great majority of 'the students are
vouns" men many ot them over
twenty years old capable of inde
pendent thought and action, there
are many reasons why the student
body should have a voice in its gov
It is practically impossible for the
faculty and students to see every
thing from the same point of view.
Laws were sometimes made, the
enforcement of which arouses more
or lees opposition on the part of the
students simply because these laws
are not understood. It is difficut to
explain them to all of the students.
The Senate could easily be brought
to see 'the reasonableness of them
and would endorse them. The
students having" confidence in their
representatives, acquiesce, and
friction and 4 'hard feeling" would be
' Again the faculty do not always
see things from the student's point of
view. If the ideas of the latter could
be known laws that are sometimes
made would never be enacted. But
how is the faculty to know what
the students think? Individual
men may be called up, and their
opinions asked; but they may not be
representative men, or even if they
are, they hesitate to speak for a
body of men when they have no
authority to do so.
The members of the Senate would
be representative men; they would
act knowing that they did so with
authority; the students having con
fidence in their representatives,
would abide by their decisions.
The Tar Heel will continue this
discussion in its next issue. It off
ers'its columns to the members o
the University faculty and stu
dents and solicits a full and candid
expression of their views.
If a University Senate would no
be a good thing, let us have the rea
sons. If it would be of advantage
to the University, let us go at the
matter in earnest, and take the
proper steps to have one established

Why Judge Hayxvood left North
Carolina is discussed by J. B. C.
Jr. The author rejects the theory
that Judge Haywood left on account
of the odium brought upon himself
by his conduct in connection with
the Glasgow trial. The real rea
son is said to be that times of meet
ings of the court of North Carolina
were so changed that the Judge
lost his old position and having to
build up a new one, preferred to do
that in Tennesee rather than in
