A front page story on the library heat situation says the
iystom of humidification in the stacks "was not installed for
jiomlort of the students" because the State didn't provide
for such a comfort in the budget. The present air conditioning
system is supposed to protect the books when it works.
I Hie singular part about the heat Jrouble is that students
would not have any ventilation in the stacks if it weren't for
he books. The stacks are windowless and the air conditioner
Was constructed for the benefit of the books. The students
are lucky to have any air. Their comfort is supplementary to
Ithe welfare of the books. '
' The Tar. Heel regrets, and apologizes for, the publication
of a story which took a man's life in vain.
! We hope that the individuals who enjoyed the "joke" now
realize the seriousness of the matter and the deep complica-
jtions which such a prank involves.
j We wonder, too, if the persons involved ever considered
what the role of a student newspaper is. The Tar Heel is a
Student publication, published by students, about students, to
give accurate information about the University community.
Pressing Problems
by Rollo Taylor '
O.K., ; Dr. J. femrose Harland,
here is the helping hand you
have been 'asking for the last
20-bdd ! years. For those not
versed in the higher arts, e.g.,
Greek and Roman Art, etc., Dr.
Harland is Carolina's favorite
professor and for as long as any
one can remember almost, he has
been holding his archeology in
the original "Old Weir of the
campus, 111 Murphy Hall.
The good doctor is faced with
trying to get students to take
notes during his classes when
there is no possible way a human
being can write in the seats of
his auditorium. Each quarter, he
asks students to bring a slidge
hammer, dynamite, or any des
structive force with them to rip
out the seats. Evidently there is
a shortage of such materials for
the seats are still there, tearing
students' clothing, giving them
acute posterior cramps, and caus
ing general confusion.
"; Nor is there Jxny ventilation.
Students are sometimes warned
to bring their -own oxygen to
class. In summer, it is . reported
that Central prison sends over
its worse customers iot a week in
the "hole". In winter, the radia

The portrait of hatchet-faced
Queen Bloody Mary Tudor, which
usually glares at those-entering
Person Hall" Art Gallery, was
discreetly removed some weeks
ago for the sixteenth annual Art
Exhibition of University student
work. (May 27-July27) Williams
burgish Person Hall seemed to
begrudgingly lend its faded, dull
grey walls to this splashy line
up of enthusiastic modernity.
A Carolina art student is "free
to investigate formal expressive
values "which can't be com
municated in words," as one pro
fessor put it. In spite of this, we
see a strinkingly familiar element
prevading in all of thevexhibited
works. There is a dutiful at
tempt to express all thought con
tent in the fashionable abstract
symbols currently termed the
"cult of .unitellegibility."
Carolina art students today shy
away from conventional represen
tation enjoying the blind, igno
rant use of chaotic abstraction,
and covering their canvases with
numerous master artists. Their
work is often termed "modern"
and acceptable to the advanced
thinkers, ranging from Georges
Rouault to Pablo Picasso. In
short, this freedom of investiga
tion has led to a blundering type
of copying of stylistic techniques,
rehashed and weakened by pos
sible misunderstanding of the
intellectual language - employed
