Statement That Coach Has As
sumed Duties of Physical
Education Director Due to
,e- r ' 99
COPY BULLETIN 23
IS RECEIVED HERE
With the receipt at the" Uni
versity of the full Carnegie re
port on college athletics last
week instead of in December as
the newspapers had previously
announced, President Chase yes
terday issued his first statement
on the report.
"A misconception is respon
sible for the statement that the
head coach has assumed the au
thority of the director of physi
cal education," said Dr. Chase's
statement in part. "This is not
the correct state of affairs here.
"Since Carolina is largely a
self-selp institution," President
Chase continued, "many students
work their way through. No
preference, however, is shown toj
athletes in the distribution of
self-help opportunities, scholar
ships, or loan funds." Dr. Chase
said the University would rather
risk an occasional in j ustice than
exclude athletes entirely from
scholarships, loan funds, and the
' like. '
Dr. 5 Chase has only glanced
over the bulletin, which' has
raised many problems about the
presenstate of college athletics
in America. It contains so" much
- matter that more leisurely read
inc is neeessarv to digest it
Only two copies of the report
have arrived at the University:
- one is Dr. Chase's private copy,
and the other will be placed in
the education' library Monday.
Many students -who Have ex
pressed a desire to read the re
port will be able to obtain it
there. A copy of the bulletin
mav be obtained, free of charge,
from the Carnegie foundation
for the advancement of teaching,
522 Fifth Avenue, New York.

since the publication of the Car

the awarding of scholarships.
