Trustee Unit
For Action
The Trustee Executive Commit
tee was censured for its Saturday
class proposal by a campus group
almost as old as the Board of
Trustees itself, when the Phi As
sembly met Tuesday night.
By an overwhelming vote, the
159-year old debating society
adopted a resolution "favoring
any honorable . action , leading to
the rejection" of the committee's
argument in support of
the Phi bill was that the action
rpnrppnterl another in a series
of trespasses by the Trustees up- !
on functions that should properly
k wt t tv, fa,ltv nH stii- i
dents. The Executive Committee
adopted the Saturday class pro
posal despite strong objections
from the University student body,
faculty and administration, ine
Phi pointed out.
The bill termed the move "ob
noxious to the liberal, progressive
principles of education which the
University has fostered since its
inception."
"No reason has been given for
. this action," the bill continued,
"except to prevent the students
and faculty from receiving much
needed rest and relaxation."

Trustee's Switch .
Came As Result
Of Opinion Study
' By John Jamison
University Trustee John W.
Umstead Jr., yesterday ex
plained he switched from a
position favoring Saturday
classes to his present position
against them after discovering
"there were facts pertaining
to the question that I had not
considered."
Simultaneously Chancellor
Robert B. House observed that
the Executive Committee has
"returned to the position ex
pressed in the action of the
Board of Trustees on June 2,
1948," ordering a plan looking
toward the resumption of Satur
day classes as early as practica
ble. In a letter to The Daily Tar
Heel explaining his reversal
Umstead said, "In 1948 when the
matter of Saturday classes came
before the Board of Trustees I
seconded the motion that wa3
passed calling for the resumption
cf Saturday classes as soon as
practicable."
He continued, "Several mem
bers of the faculty and several
students talked with me about
the matter and I found that there
were facts pertaining to the ques
tion that I had not considered.
Wishing to strengthen my posi
tion favoring the motion that had
been passed I decided to go into
the matter thoroughly and with
each group that were interested.
"Over a period of two years I
talked with administrative offi
cers of the University, faculty
members, students and both fath
ers and mothers of students. I
tried get all the facts to the end
that after thorough consideration
I might make up my mind as to
what would be best for the Uni
versity. "As a result of this investiga
tion I came to the conclusion that
I was wrong in favoring the orig
inal motion. When the matter
was again brought up on Mon-
dav 1 opposed and shall continue
to offer all the opposition that I
can. The arguments against Sat
urday classes too many to carry
them in this statement but I will
. . . ., . . .
Subsequent to this action of
the Board (ordering the study of
a plan for Saturday classes), a
faculty committee and the Visit
ing Committee of the Board of
Trustees studied the five-day
class week matter thoroughly.
The Visiting Committee in its re
port to the Board on February
28, 1949, gave a complete an
alysis of the problem. The com
mittee concluded that the ad
vantages, of the five-day class
week out-weighed the disadvan
tages. "The report of the. Visiting
Committee was approved by the
Board of Trustees, and the Uni
versity Administration consid
ered this to mean that no change
in the five-day class week was
desired by the Board.
"From time to time since 1943,
the question has been raised
again.
"On Monday, November 10,
1952, the Executive Committee re
turned to the position expressed
