the $100,000 UNC grant will be
divided up into scholarships to
be awarded graduate and under

"Teaching as a profession may
not be getting its share of brains
and this program should hold
out attractive scholarships in
ducing more talent to go into
graduate work," Wilson said.
The funds were given with the
idea of strengthening existing
graduate departments which
would in time -benefit under
graduate work. Besides UNC,
Duke, Tulane, Emory, and Van
derbilt received grants. North
Carolina was the only state uni
versity in the group.

Tackles Varied Problems
By Joe Raff
If you have ever spent some
time in -the Housing Office here
at the University and overheard
any telephone conversations you
would note that Housing Officer

problems ranging from dog-owning
medical students to family

After receiving his A. B. and
M. A. degrees from the Univer

the University of Chicago, Dr.
Lane taught at the University of

In 1938 he came here where he
has established a reputation as an
excellent teacher and outstand

in the graduate work. Carmichael
believes that these "high quality
graduate and research programs
in a few institutions will set the
pace and point the way to be
followed by the less developed
universities as these latter ac
quire increased resources."
Some years ago, Princeton
University received a grant from
the foundation to develop educa
tion on the undergraduate level.
UNC has been ranked second
in the south by the Southern Uni
versity Conference for its grad
uate program. John Hopkins was
rated first while Duke was listed
third in a opinnionaire survey
made by the conference.
Today is Wednesday!!
Sure, the calendar says to
day is Saturday, January 5,
1952, but the University offi
cials say today is Wednesday,
January 2, 1952. All Wednes
day classes will meet today
as scheduled to make up for
one of the two days missed at
the beginning of the quarter.
Also, if planning to drop
or add courses you must do
so today or Monday. After
Monday no drop-add slips
will be accepted at Archer
The Housing Office hands out
compliments- as well as making
predictions, analizing current
trends and aiding drstitute stu
dents. Wadsworth made an interesting
and noteworthy observation about
those students who have "been
seeking rooms for this year. It
seems recently the students have
been more polite than in past
years and the bicycle-riding sea
going Navy officer, and Scout
mastering Wadsworth and his
staff are truly grateful for the
courtesy shown him and his de
partment. The Housing Office handles my
riads of problems. They are go
betweens with town houses and
the University dormitories. Stu
dents with special needs in hous
ing accomodations receive spe
cial attention and even the thirty
five veterans who are on the
waiting list for rooms receive Jcind
words and consolation from Wads
worth and his crew.
Don't think for a moment the
Housing Office is without woes.
State property is constantly be
ing marred, scarred, and charred
by flippant flippers of cigarette
butts. In some of the older dorms
there is evidence of centuries of
hurling cigarettes against the hall
doors and also through the years
desks, bureaus and other furniture
have been burned by careless
smokers. The Housing Office re
quests that students be more
pareful in the future and to take
rare of their own property.

Durham Officials investigating

State Auditor Henry Bridges was
begun last week. Bridges charged
that "two or three" schools had
been aiding athletes with state
Dr. Alfonso Elder, president
of N. C. C, when asked if any
of the practices existed there re
plied, "I don't know whether at
present we deviate in any way
from the policy "the State will
outline. It's possible that we do.
We expect to get a memorandum
from the state concerning its
policy. We'll do whatever the
State says." ..
The college had started an in
vestigation prior to the . State
investigation to determine in what

said the investigation had dis
closed nothing at East Carolina
and, expressed the belief it did
not prevail either at N. C. State
or here at the University.
