Demand To Win, Wade Say

college athletics result from two
fundamental causes the pres-
sure and demand that a coach
win in order to achieve financial
reward and prestige" and the
"practice of depending upon gate
receipts for the financial support
of the athletic program," South

Wallace Wade told the Kiwanis
club here yesterday.
Most cf the abuses in intercol

According to The Daily Tar
Heel, however, Coach Snavely
admitted some Carolina alumni
might be helping the boy.
Then yesterday the same paper
quoted O. K. Cornwell of UNC as
saying Carolina can't and doesn't
help high school athletes.
It's News To Some
Frankly, I thought it was com
mon knowledge colleges assisted
schoolboy athletes before they
entered college if they needed
assistance, that is.
But apparently it's news to a
lot of people, including editorial
writers and some college hired
hands. , '
There are various ways of
helping a schoolboy who needs
a few additional credits' to enter
college. Some private individual
or an alumni group might pay
for his tuition and incidental ex
penses. Too, prep schools have

National Poll Shovs Most College Students
Disappove Of Professors Loyalty Oaths
(ACP) . College students tend
to disapprove of loyalty oaths,
and college graduate students are
overwhelmingly opposed to them,
according to results of the Associ
ated Collegiate Press National
Poll of Student Opinion.
Students in 63 colleges and
universities were asked: In gen
eral, do you approve or disap
prove of having college profes
sors take an oath stating that they
are not members of the Com
munist party. The results:
1. Approve .: 39 per cent
2. Disapprove 47 per cent
One of the finest half backs' in
the Southern Conference last
year was a kid by the name of
Randy Broyles at Washington and
Lee. He attended Summer school
at Durham High three years ago,
at the invitation of Duke, to get
eligible for college. But when
the colleges opened their doors
in the Fall, Broyles packed rr's
bag and went to Washington and
Lee. 1 '
I'm not saying who paid Broyles
expenses during his Summer in
Durham because I don't know.
But I can . tell you Duke was
mighty upset over losing him.
I don't know that Carolina is
paying Bullocks expenses at
AH I do know is that a source
very close to Bullock told me
Carolina is paying his way and
now that Carl Snavelv has
switched to the T formation, he's
pretty sure he'll cast his lot with

But several other schools are
still mighty hot after the football
