tooi Officials Make Slight
Change In Rule 13; Barrier To
Duke Rose Bowl Trip Removed
To Abolish Spring
RICHMOND, Dec 10 Delegates
to the annual Southern conference
meeting went home -today after mak
ing a slight change in rule 13, anti
subsidization clause, and overwhelm
ingly voting down a proposal to
abolish spring football practice.
The altering of rule 13, advocated
by Virginia Tech and" Clemson, was
limited to the mere wording of the
law. The rule formerly read, "schol
arships should be open to athletes
and non-athletes on equal basis for
character, scholarship, financial need,
specific task, and general merit."
Gobbler and Tiger officials wanted to
strike "non-athletes" out of the
clause. But the only change made was
to substitute "should be awarded,"
for "should be open." -
The Virginia Tech amendment to
abolish spring and other off-season
football practice was defeated.
The conference removed the final
barriers to Duke's Rose Bowl trip by
repealing the conference law against
post-season games. Indication that
this might be done was shown in an
informal poll by Duke two weeks
ago when the Blue Devils first got
the Eose Bowl bid.
Officers were re-elected and va
rions tournament sites were named.
The 1939 basketball tournament will
again be held in Raleigh, the boxing
moved from College Park to Colum
hia. while State's reauest for the
swimming was shelved for the time
being. Doc Newton of State was
elected president of the coaches as
sociation, and Gene McEver of David
son was named secretary-treasurer.
With today's issue the Daily Tab
Hrer. ceases publication for the
Christmas holidays. The next edi
tion will appear Wednesday, Janu
ary 4, 1939.
During examination week may
"God be with us yet, lest we for
get"; and thereafter: Merry Christ
mas and Happy New Year.
Members of the staff will return
to work at 1:30 Tuesday, January
3, 1939. An revoir.

GREEDY CALLS FOR
Editor Asks For
"Despite the machinations of the
Publications Union board, there will
be a regular issue of The Carolina
Magazine in January. Any merger or
trial issue will not be in effect until
February," Editor John Creedy said
"Over Christmas is a good time to
get to work on that short story you
have always wanted to write. Poetry
too there's not been much good poe
try submitted lately. Any of you who
are interested in writing articles to
order are asked to see the editor about
a particularly interesting project for
the January issue," he said.
Student Council's Statement
In the light of some present misunderstanding of a recent Student Council
statement of policy concerning freedom of expression, we issue the following
statement in regard to freedom of expression on this campus.
The first criticism levelled against the Council ruling is that in holding
unnecessarily discourteous acts to be a violation of the Campus Code the
Student Council has adopted an "illiberal policy because of its complete
flexibility." (Tar Heel editorial of December 8, 1938). The fundamental
basis of Carolina campus discipline, except for lying, cheating, and stealing,
which are covered by, the honor system, has been the Campus Code, which
says that every Carolina student must act as a gentleman, and this is the
utmost of flexibility. (As a matter of fact, this is so great a degree of flex
ibility that, if anything, pointing out that an unnecessary discourtesy is
one violation of the Campus Code makes the Campus Code, in reality, more
specific than it has ever been before). Assuming that campus government until
now has been liberal, to criticize the Council for having too flexible power
is to criticize the liberal discretion of the campus governing body a discre
tion which has been a fundamental basis of campus discipline since the be
ginning of the century. . :
The second criticism levelled against the Council's statement of policy is
that it has not specifically enumerated what "forms of freedom of expres
sion will be prohibited in the. future and what forms will not." (Tab TTtct.
editorial December 8, 1938). Specification of these forms cannot be made. It
is impossible to anticipate what particular fact set-ups may arise in the
future, and the most that can be done is adhere to the general principles of
student government and apply these principles to particular fact situations
as they arise. ,
These principles, as applied to unnecessary discourtesies boil down to this:
An unnecessary discourtesy .is a violation of the Campus Code in that it is
ungentlemanly. As such it will be dealt with just as any other violation of
the Campus Code. Some may regret that this cannot be made more definite
and specific, but it should be remembered that for years no student on the
campus has known specifically what particular acts .he could do and could
not do. The only limitation has been that he act as a gentleman, and tM
same principle continues to govern. A student's best assurance of his free
dom to think and to say what he likes according to his own common sense
judgment and discretion is the knowledge that the Student Council will not
be unreasonable in its interpretation of the Campus Code. .
Program To Open At
8 O'Clock; Women's
Glee Club To Sing
When Dean of Administration Rob
ert B. House introduces Dr. Freder
ick H. Koch in his 163rd reading of
Charles Dickens' "A Christmas
Carol' tonight, the Dean will present
what he has called the University
Christmas Card" to the campus.
Arrangements for this annual
reading of the "Carol" in Memorial
hall are under the direction of Dean
Francis Bradshaw. Dr. Koch's read
ing of the story of Scrooge and Mar
ley serves as a reminder that the
Christmas season is here.
Professor Elmer HaH, assisted by
the University Building department
and Hall's students in staging1 meth
ods, has designed a new stage set
ting in the spirit of the holiday sea
son. Promptly at 8 o'clock Robert
Brawley will begin a half hour of
specially selected music on the Me
morial hall organ.
At 8:30 Dr. Koch will be intro
duced by Dean House and will begin
the first stave of the most beloved
Christmas story in any language. Be
tween the staves the University Wom

ment of music will sing old English
Students who recall former read
ings of the "Carol will remember
the spell of the great story and the
audience dispersed with Tiny Tim's
toast, "God bless us everyone," still
ringing in their hearts.
No Coed Serenade
Monday exams, the ogres, will
deprive the campus of the coed
Christmas serenade, according to
an announcement by Olive Cruik
shank, president of the woman's
Pan-Hellenic council, yesterday. For
several years, the Pan-Hellenic
council has sponsored a caroling
service on the Sunday night before
exams and the Christmas holidays,
but heretofore exams have started
on Tuesday and there has not been
the same need to study.
Xmas Service Today

Culbreth will conduct a Christmas ,
service entitled, "The. Music of the
Gospel," at 11 o'clock this morning.
