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 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.
