Students Voice Disfavor
Of 'Life3 Magazine Layout
By Walter Klein
LIFE magazine has apparently
earned itself four thousand enemies in
four days. The enemies are Carolina
students who are still looking pain
fully at LIFE's spread on Carolina's
Sadie Hawkins Day. The issue under
attack is the current one, which hit
the stands Friday.
A Tar Heel reporter could find no
student who showed any indication
of approving LLFE's treatment Of the
event, and boys and girls almost unan

plan, student-inspired, would join the
present movement later this week.
If rumor is substantiated, it would
place the University first in the na
tion -to organize its student resource
for the mammoth enterprise.
Meanwhile Russell M. Grumman,
extension head;" and F. F. Bradshaw,
dean of students direct the mechani

and Dean R. B. House acting as the
University's link with Washington.
The Program: "To build morale, or
unity of purpose, based on common
enlightenment, understanding and dis
cussion of today's critical problems
not on propaganda or suppression."
And with this crisp aim, evolved
from a declaration by President Roose

Studebaker, commissioner of educa

would result in similar systems in oth
