Hill, LAU HLLL practically nothing toward develop
mg the scholar. And no one can hold
that brute force is of more value to
the state than a quick brain. Both
qualities are fundamentally necessary
to success. The strength of body
must form the foundation for strength
of mind but if the body is over-devel
oped and the mind untouched the labor
is thrown away. It is evident then
that we must do something to encourage
T. Joyxkr the development of scholars. We must
give them some form of recognition
W hat shall this be? In the first place
what does the N. C. monogram repre
sent? You say that it means that the
wearer is a representative Carolina
man in the line in which he was
awarded a sweater. Now you can
mean one of two things when you say
a "representative" Carolina man. He
can be a man who represents Carolina
in an inter-collegiate match or he can
he a man, who, in the course of his
college career, has attained such pro
minence in a certain line that we shall
be willing to point him out as a typical
Carolina man in that respect. Which
is really the representative Carolina
man? The sreneral ODinion would
ravor the former interpretation. But
should we not feel as proud of the man
whom we may call typically Carolinian
as the man who has simply been for
tunate enough or had the ability to re
present Carolina in an inter-collegiate
contest? There are men given swea
ters here who never engage in any
inter-collegate contest whatever. We
think they deserve their monograms.
But there are so many other men who
deserve the same thing and never get
it. It is a simple fact that we are en
couraging development here in only
one direction. Such a top-heavy state
of affairs is bound to bring its own
ruin unless stopped. If the literary
men and the scholars of the univer
sity men are representative men, why
not give them the same encourage
ment that we give the athlete. Don't
understand us to mean that these men
deserve sweaters. What we think is
that they deserve some college distinc
tion in some more tangible form than
the empty glory of an achievement
that brings no reward. The athletic
plant has -already grown until very
little nourishment and sunlight is avail
able for anything else and it bids fair
soon to freeze out competitors. We have
got to look about and wake up to our
danger and do it quickly.

From college presidents and from the
men who. are interested in college
affairs there is going up throughout
the land a cry against the all-absorbing
predominance of athletics in col
lege life. No one is against athletics.
Far from i t. Every one realizes t hat
they have a most important part to
play in developing a true man. The
. kick is against the onesided trend of
the students. In our owu university
we believe that this is not so great an
evil as in the north and west. But
how very bad are conditions even here.
The man who wears an N. C. sweater
is the hero of the college. The editor
of the magazine is not known except
by a few upper class men. It is get
ting to ber a disgrace to make the Phi
Beta Kappa society. Why is this?
When one comes to think of it the
editor of the magazine or a Phi Beta
Kappa man is really as much a credit
to the University as a member of the
football team. Why then this glorifi
cation of one set and the ignoring o
me oiners. in ine nrsi place we
believe that the intercollegiate char
acter of the athletic contests is largely
responsible. When an athletic team
wins from some rival college team the
enthusiasm of the student body is im
mediately fired. The athletes take
the center of the stage at once and
their lot, for the time being is most
enviable. Then too in an athletic
contest the athlete is always before
the eyes of the admirer and the feel
ings of the onlooker are more active
in consequence. , The magazine editor
may write a fine article. The reader
however generally spends his enthu
siasm in admiring ths article, not the
author. We admire the athlete and
we admire the writing. Another
reason for the predominance of athletics
is in the form of reward given. ? The
athletes are given a sweater with the
college monogram on the front. This
forms a conspicuous mark for that
man in the eyes of every one on the
campus. Literary achievement is
given no recognition. The scholar
may have his Phi Beta Kappa pin but
this cannot compare with the sweater.
Now a university is for the building of
men, men who will make the best citi
zens. Such a man must not be a brute,
he must not be a grind. He must be
not only well developed physically but
just as well developed mentally. To
neglect one for -the other is not to
make the best men. Just as well over
develop athletics as scholarship. Both
are harmful to the state. As matters
stand now we are doing all we can to
develop the athlete but we are doing
