Today our campus entertains the most welcome guests
,of all. Mothers and fathers of Carolina students have come
from all parts of the state and nation at the invitation of the
University and Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity to enjoy
a Sunday afternoon observing this community their children
call "home" nine months of the twelve.
Many will see Chapel Hill for the first time. Others will
gaze nostalgically at our landmarks in happy reminiscence of
the days "when I was a kid here." Mothers will, admire the
beauty of Southern springtime while fathers subconsciously
evaluate the results of their multi-thousand dollar educational
in vestment. All will leave tinctured with that glittering in
tangible known as "The Carolina Way of Life."
The student body joins with the University, Alpha Phi
Omega, the Morehead Planetarium, and the Band in unrolling
the welcome mat. It's a pleasure to have you with us today,
Parents. Please make yourselves at home.
My Words Are Life
"All service to God is service to man." Thus, Emil Brunher,
the great modern theologian has defended religion against
the type of humanist who would discard religious institutions
and practices, and values. Conversely the opposite is just as
true, all service to man js service to God. If the Christian
doubts either of these two assertions, he has but to turn to
the summing up of the law and the prophets by the Founder
of his glorious and eternal religion. " .
Jesus said there were no commandments greater ;than
these two, that man should love God with all his mind, heart
and strength and his neighbor as himself, and He didn't
specify the color of .the neighbor's "skin or the creed in his
heart. Developing the balance between the keeping of these
two commandments produces a tension that should never be
relaxed. ' ;
v The positivist and the empiricist may attack these two
simple precepts by insisting upon a "scientific hierarchy"
of values before attempting to carry them out. To serve God
and man is a noble calling, but how do you propose, to go
about it until science has had sufficient time; to give, all the
answers necessary to this undertaking. After all, even ihe
most egotistic of the scientists, the most versatile, and the
most learned admit that our knowledge of human nature with
all of its egos, libidos, ids, and the rest, is strictly limited, and
until all these are fully understood, to talk about serving
either Gor or man is nonsense. To such charges as these, one
of the wisest men of the past seven hundred years, if not .the
wisest, would probably reply today as he did in the i3th
century. "You have the words of Jesus Christ, and that is
sufficient." With these words, the Seraphic saint turned away
the philosophers and the learned Divines. With his keen sen
sitivity to the suffering of mankind, this great reformer put
his complete trust in the wisdom of the words of our Blessed
Lord and Savior, "my words are spirit and life."
Even at the risk of being labeled a crank, the Christian
must maintain with St. Francis, that greater than the learning
of science and the wisdom of the savants, the Incarnate Word.,
of God is the one path to perfection. Trusting in the Creator ;
rather than the created, he goes forth as the Great White
Horse in the book or Revelation, conquering and to conquer.
The details he leaves to the scientists, but the blueprint
for victory oyer life and death,, he accepts from the; loving
hands of a Savior who came into the ' world that tfie world
through His Passion might be saved.

Our new President is now ensconced in the executive office
on the ground floor of GrahanVMemorial. m His files are cleared,
his stationery is fresh and beside the desk calendar is a copy
of his party platform for prompt and frequent reference.
Ham Horton has shown an initial burst of enthusiasm
which encourages those of us who look forward to a function
ing student government. Campaign bitterness has evaporated
and both sides have rededicated themselves to the common
goal The welfare of the student body.

(The Daily Tar Heel has in
vited Bill Huntley, ex-President
of the Cosmopolitan Club, to
comment on the role of the
foreign student studying in the
United States. We feel inter
national interest and awareness
can be promoted through closer
acquaintance and cooperation
with these "student ambassa
dors" in our midst. ED.)
"What does the foreign stu
dent , expect to gain from the
American University? Does he
gain it? This was the theme of
the conference held last Sat
urday at Woman's College in
Greensboro. Foreign students
from all over the state attended
"Why did he come?" Natur
ally, the reasons of the foreign
student for coming to the United
States, as well as his expecta
tions, will varv. As a result,
foreign students may be classi
fied as "ambassadors" and "tou
rists." The -ambassadors may be
further classified as "importers"
and "exporters." The one who
came to take away American
ideas to put into practice at
home is the "exporter" and the
one who came and will contri- .
bute something to their field
while here are the "importers".
The "tourists" are those students
who come for personal deve
lopment alone. Both groups,
"ambassadors" and "tourists"
alike, are importers of the flavor
of their culture and exporters
of the flavor of ours..
"Does the student fulfil his
motives for coming here?" He
most often does, but, too often, .
he doesn't completely fulfill
them. Still he often gains more ,
than he expected. The Cosmopo
litan Club is an important fac
tor in this respect
"What are the shortcomings
affecting his stay here?" Some
of them are: Racial and religi
ous prejudices, lack of suffici
ent funds, and even failure of
Americans to take-jan interest
in him (and also the reverse!).
All of these things are important
factors in the life of a foreign
student, arid they should be just
as important to us. We should
know and recognize them, for.
it is our duty to welcome him
into our midst, making him, in
sofar as possible, one of us.
"What can we do to improve
the situation?" It should be the
duty of the Cosmopolitan Club
to serve as "Big Brother" to the
newly arrived student to aid in
his orientatior. and tq stimulate
his interest for intercultural
affairs, making- him feel he
"belongs". He is introduced to
a , broader aspect of culture, he
becomes truly cosmopolitan,
(Webster says: "belonging to all
the world"). With this outlook
perhaps ninety percent of his
problems are solved!
, Hut the Club needs American
students, cosmopolitans, who ac
tually ore just us "foreign" to
such a club as anyone can be!
The Americans are possibly the
most . important single element.
; i Miss Selma Haydock-Wilson,
President of the W C Cosmo
politan Club, sponsor of the
conference, expressed the hope
that he conference, would con
tinue to grow as an annual
affair to help make the stay of
each foreign student in this -country
more and more profit-

Express Yourself '
I am a coed who lives in
Mclver Dorm. It was my plea
sure tonight to hear a very
beautiful serenade given for one
of the girls in the dorm by a
certain fraternity. The songs
were sung beautifully, and one
could not help but feel good to
know that all human emotion
and romantic gestures have not
been shoved aside in this busy
world of ours.
However, I digress. The songs
were sung with warmth, feeling
and sincerity. The serenade
ended, and the performers left
as silently as they had come.
Coeds cluttered about the win
dows, and with much effort
refrained from bursting into
outcries of appreciation.
A few minutes later the dorm
was again calm. The lights in
many rooms were out. for the
night. Suddenly, on the same
gentle breezes which had just
a few minutes before carried
melodious strains of music, came
a shout a cry! A shrill whistle!
. . . Booming male voices were
trying desperately to "sing."
