By-Mail ;
The presidents of the Southern
Conference schools, in a tedious
three-hour and 45-minute meet
in the Morehead Building yester
day, rehashed and reviewed their
actions of last December and de
cided to hold a vote by mail on
the eligibility of freshmen in
varsity athletics.
The meeting of the 38 repre
sentatives of 16 schools (Clemson
was not represented) and Com
missioner Wallace Wade produced
none of the fireworks which had
marked previous meetings. The
closest thing to excitement was
supplied by Adm. Alvin Duke
Chandler, president of William
and Mary, who heatedly asked
that action be taken on recruit
ing in the conference before other
motions were entertained.
"Recruiting Is Outrageous"
"Recruiting in the Southern
Conference is outrageous," he ex
claimed. "In the five months I
have been president I have seen
all sorts of under-the-table
goings on. I want to go on record
that until we clear-up recruiting,
we cannot do anything.
The rest is only, window-dressing,
until we get to the real issue."
Admiral Chandler took over at
William and Mary last fall after
a scandal concerning falsifying
high school transcripts of athletes

Coach Jim Tatum of Maryland
agreed in part with Chandler.
"The presidents ought to take the
pressure off the coaches," he said.
However Tatum did not feel that
banning of bowl games and pro
hibition of spring practice would
help the present situation.
Service Schools Recruit
"No one has a more highly com
petitive recruiting system that the
Naval Academy or West Point or
Notre Dame, but they have not
expressed interest in going to
bowls. I don't think any coach
would . mind putting an end to
recruiting. We spend 90 percent
of our time creating good will for
the boys."
Just before the conclusion of
the meeting Byrd rose and an
nounced that he had a statement
he would like to make. He said,
"The press of North Carolina has
been entirely unfair to Presidents
Gray and Edens of the University
of North Carolina and Duke in
sports editorials concerning the
susnensions of Maryland and
"The Septembr meeting here
was suggested by the President
of Maryland the previous March.
We didn't feel that the action of
the president's in September was
legal. However, there is no ques
tion of our violating the rule and
disciplinary action was proper
toward both institutions."
"This is the attitude of the
University of Maryland: We will
abide by the regulations of the
conference and we have-not the
slightest ill : will toward any in
stitution or individual for voting
for, our suspension, if we were in
the position of, the other schools
we. would have done the same
thing. We expect to continue con
ference relationships in the fu
ture." - :
Gray Serves Again
This speech, was followed by. a
warm round of applause and ;it
was not expected that Mr. Gray
was asked to remain as chairman
of the president's group.
Among the action taken by the
group was the following: " ,
1. Passed a motion that a vote
by mail be taken no later than
the last day of March on the eli
gibility of freshmen in varsity
sports. At present," freshmen are
eligibile for varsity competition.

Discrimin ation
Charges Are
Charges of discrimination
against Negro law students here
have received no further action,
Durham attorney C. O. Pearson
said yesterday.
Martin A. Martin of Richmond,
Va., and Robert Carter of New
York NAACP national ; counsels, 1
conferred with Pearson this
week but no further action was
taken regarding the charge, Pear
son said.
-. On February 29 Pearson charg
ed that the University was "har
assing" its Negro law students in
an effort to prevent their gradu
ation and to discourage other
Negroes from seeking admission
to the school.
Pearson, who is state counsel
of the NAACP, declared then
that the law students "are being
discriminated against solely on ac
count of race and color for the
purpose of preventing them from
graduating in June."
"Some of the Negro students at
UNC made honor grades at
North Carolina College," he said,
"and all made creditable grades!
Now these students are being
'punched' by some of these same
Two of the five Negro law stu
dents here said they were mak
ing "fair" grades and have passed
all courses during both semesters
at UNC. The other three said
they had each failed two courses
and will have to make at least a
C" average to stay in school. An
average of between a "C" and
"D" or a numerical average of 3.5
is required of all students.
None of the five would say . that
the Law School faculty had dir
ectly discriminated against them
in grading.. However they cited
several specific situations which
they labeled "unusual:" (1) The
only "A? made by any of them
has been in a course taught at the
law school last summer by a visit
ing West Coast professor; (2) the
only third-year students who have
failed courses in which Negroes
have been enrolled have been the
Negroes themselvs; and (3) in one
course in which all five of them
were enrolleda class of 60 to
70 students three of the six
failures were given to Negroes
University officials promptly
denied Pearson's charges. Law
School Dean Henry Brandis stat
ed that "in all matters of grad
ing and,, scholastic performance
they (the Negro students) have
been treated exactly like any
other student." He was backed up
in his statement "by Chancellor
R. B. House, who said of the
charges, "They are not worth

Chest N
p proximately
Approximately $1700 in cash was donated to the Campus
Chest fund during the past four days, Chest officials reported
In addition to this amount, pledges for $500 have been re
ported. Officials hope for a much larger figure when all re
ports from the different solicitors have been turned in.
State Funds
Barred For
Special to The Daily Tar Heel)
Raleigh No more athletic
scholarships may be given from
State funds.
In a joint directive handed
down yesterday by Budget Bureau
Chief D. S. Coltrane and State
Auditor Henry Bridges, all State-
supported colleges were notified:
"Scholarships shall- not be
granted to any student out of or
involving state funds." However,
they added, "this does not apply
to scholarships granted out of
trust funds."
The directive is a result of
Bridges' findings that some of the
State's smaller schools were in
effect subsidizing athletes with
State funds.
In some cases students were not
paying any tuition, or other fees
while attending some of the state
supported institutions. Instead,
they exchanged their so-called
scholarship for work done around
the school. Bridges said in many
cases no records were kept of the
amount of work done. In other
cases, he said, the value of work
done was far below the amount
of financial aid rendered.
The order said all payments
for student help "shall be sup
ported by State payrolls and paid
by check." It stated specifically
that "there shall be no reduction
made in tuition, fees, room, board,
etc., collected from any particular
classification of students, except
as provided., by law in special
cases." - "

Zeta Beta Tau fraternity re
ceived a prize of $25 for the larg
est contribution per capita. They
turned in a total of $67.70.
Other awards have not been de

reports and having to secure a
correct list of population in dif
ferent - dorms and sororities to
figure the per capita contributions.
The announcement will probably
come the first part of spring quar

eral special events would be sche
