FORT BRAGG I'm having
car trouble. Again.
The heap I'm driving now is
the third I have owned, and up
until last Friday night it had
never given me any cause for
cussin'. All it did the other
night was refuse to start when
I was ready to take off for
Chapel HilL I finally borrowed
a car, and arrived in time to
pick up my date at 10:30 for the
German Club dance which start
ed at 9 o'clock.
The first jet I ever owned was
a 1939 Ford which had already
lost its virility when my folks
turned it over tp me shortly
after the end of World War II.
It carried me through my
freshman year at Carolina, and
also carried me on several foot
ball trips in the fall, to New
York for a long weekend in the
winter, and to the beach a num
ber of times spring quarter. But
it was costing me more money
than I had, and at that time
never having heard of the
Nixon Plan for Living Over
Your Income, I sold it.
The next year was rough. I
had to walk all the way from
the ATO House on Franklin
Street up to Davie Hall for bot
any. "Walking wasn't so bad,
and there was always room ,in
someone else's car for football
trips, but when spring and
beach weather returned, I long
ed for a lovemobile of my own.
So I bought another '39 Ford
in that late spring of 1948. This
one had two more doors, a dif
ferent color of paint, and seemed
to have a few years of potency
left in it.
That little white Ford traveled
from Washington, D. C, to
Crescent Beach, from Knoxville
to Myrtle, from Athens to Ocean
Drive, and from Charlottesville
and Columbia to Wrightsville.

At Large
One fateful Friday, in May of
1951 we started out on our last
beach trip, the little car and I.
Along as passengers were Daily
Tar Heel Managing Editor Rolfe
Neill and two very attractive
'females from Woman's College
at Greensboro.
Everything was just peachy
keen until we got about 35 miles
this side of Wilmington. Then
the bottom dropped out, almost
literally. The fuel pump pump
ed its last, the engine coughed,
let out a death rattle, "and col
lapsed, and we coasted to a stop
in the middle of some country
that could give the Great Dis
mal Swamp competition in the
desolation department.
"My God, what are we going
to do?" I cried out in anguish.
'Well, you might be able to
get under the hood and fix it,"
one of the girls volunteered.
"I wasn't talking about the
car, stupid," I snapped at her.
"We're out of chasers, and we've
conked out in a place that looks
like Death Valley's twin broth
er." That revelation galvanized
everyone to action, and they all
promised to do anything to the
best of my ability to correct the
situation. Rolfe magnanimously
promised to take care of the
women, and I started walking.
On the top of the next rise I
stopped and squinted down the
road. Sure enough, about a
quarter of a mile down was a
country store. As quick as you
can say "I like Ike" backwards
679 times, I sprinted down to
the store and put a call through
to the Landis at Wrightsville
Beach, where I got hold of Andy
Taylor, a former Daily Tar Heel
er now with a Marine rocket
battery near Panmunjom.
Then back to the car I went,
with Andy's promise to come

Guidin'
Bizness
. T'uther day I wuz settin' out
on the front porch of that there
fraternity club I belong to jest
sorta settin' there and takin' it
easylike when I got to thirikin'
a little bit.
Now that I is in my last year
up here at the state university,
it's interestin' to look back on
them three hell-raisin' years and
decide jest what's handed me
the most trouble in this here
book learnin' other then that
there hell-raisin' which I done
mentioned previously.
Well, sir, right quick I comes
up with the answer. I ain't been
guided right!
'Course everybody's always
moanin' 'bout them dumb pro
fessors theys got or the pitiful
subjects theys takin' and all that
stuff,1 but that's jest natural
anyways. When you git right
down to it, I reckon you can git
'bout as good a dose of book
learnin' right here at the uni
versity as you can git any
wheres. But gittin' back to this here
guidin' business I feels I been
gyped!
What us students needs is
somebody to take us over in the
corner soon's we comes here our
first year and tell us all 'bout
the subjects we can git. Some
kinda system so's we could look
at the whole dang set-up and git
advised as to what's best. Sorta
like the discussions we usta git
into back home at the general
store with our feet propped up
on the wood stove and all.
The only advisin' I got my
first two years here wuz five
minutes each quarter with some
man up in South Buildin'; and
I had to wait in line plumb near
a hour to git that! And then he
never told me nuthin'. Why,
hell-fire, I flunked freshman
math two times before I finally
found out I coulda taken that
there language the Romans usta
talk and git the same credit.
I'm purty good at that foreign
talk, too, even though I don't git
this here American too easy.
'Course once you gits around
to your third year here and gits
into what you're gonna major
in, you sometimes git a little
down-to-earth advisin' but
then it's too late. And half the
time you ain't learin what yoti
started out to learn anyways.
Jest yesterday I wuz talkin'
to Ernie Hawfield. Ernie first
came to the university to learn
to be a doctor. He startin his
sixth year now and he's takin'
a overload this quarter: Com
merce 31, geography 38, English
2, embryology 103, and phys. ed.
5. Ernie's hopin' to git his de
gree in meterology in March.
Now you know damn well that
boy ain't been guided right!
I been told theys got 'bout 700
professors learnin' us students
here. Why not give each one of
them professors some advisin' to
do, instead of jest a few like
theys got now? That way each
one would only have 'bout ten
of us students to guide and
could take the time to guide 'em
right.
Sorta neighborly advisin', you
know. So's you could set down
and find out real easy about all
this book learnin' you gotta git
without gittin' upset and all.
Kinda slow-like, you know
maybe 'bout two tobaccy chaws
worth!
get us. This news cheeied my
thirsty traveling companions,
but I was roundly cursed for
forgetting to bring any chasers
back with me.
"Let's all go up to the store
and get some chasers," I sug
gested, refusing to set off alone
again. But the side of the road
not being an ideal place to leave
a car parked, all four of us put
our shoulders to the wheel, or
the FordJ if you prefer, and be
gan pushing it slowly up the
hill. For the first time I really
appreciated the fact that Henry
made his heaps light back in '39.
The rest of the story is anti
climatic. Andy and Punchy
Grimes, a Daily Tar Heel staffer
then and now, finally arrived
and towed us to Wilmington be
hind Punchy's car. The rope
only broke six or seven times
on the way.
I had to leave the car in Wil
mington until the following
week to get it fixed. When I
went back the next weekend to
pick it up the garage offered me
$25 for the scrap metal.
I was glad to get it.

The Washington Merry-Go-Round
WASHINGTON It's an iron
ic twist of fate that the first
Supreme Court vacancy Pres
ident Eisenhower will have to
fill will probably be that of an
ardent new dealer, Justice Fe
lix Frankfurter.
Day after tomorrow, Frank
Editor:
I take it upon myself to point
out one of the places where the
Executive Committee of the
Board of Trustees has consid
ered the wrong question in re
gard to Saturday classes.
First: Let us, In theory, con
cede that they are right in their
assumption that a goodly num
ber of Carolina students are im
maturely galavanting around
the country on weekends wast
ing both their time and money
and states'. (Although. I person
ally refuse to concede to such an
assumption.)
If this Is true, how can the
Executive Committee conclude
that keeping this infantile stu
dent group an extra half a day
in class per week will mature
them to the point that they will
spend a fruitful weekend in
Chapel Hill studying? My opin
ion (for what little it is worth)
is that this measure instead of
producing gratifying work on
the part of the misfits will, at
best, simply contain their infan
tile carousings to a smaller area
and probably just delay them 24
hours.
In contrast to this consider
the injustice done to the much
greater number of serious, hard
working, mature students who

furter has the right to retire on
full salary, having then reached
the age of . 70. And since Frank
furter was one of the early Roo
sevelt men who proposed that
Supreme Court justices should
get off the bench at that age,
it would be consistent for him
use this time on the week ends
to a profitable end studying,
pursuing serious extra-curricu-lars,
or visiting home once or
twice a quarter to relieve the
tension of their studies.
The greatest injustice will be
done to those students strug
gling to get through school on
limited finances who count
heavily on the weekends for the
time to earn all or part of their
way. These students, who may
also work through the week and
use the weekends to study, are
the ones who will receive the
worst beating because of this
Saturday class ruling. The one
full day which has been theirs
to earn their way will be taken
away from them. Some will be
unable to continue in school I
won't say all because these are
the type of students and men
who can rise to meet most dif
ficulties. Now we see the question that
the Executive Committee should
have considered. Is it fair to
make the road more difficult
for some worthwhile students
just to ensure that a few worth
less ones will get to sit a few
extra hours in class with du
bious returns for the time ex
pended? Andrew J. Lavin

to do so.
However, a strange thing has
happened to Justice Frankfurter.
Though he's accused by Repub- 1
lican critics of being an archi
tect of the new deal and the
man who's inspired the Acheson
policies, actually he's become a
strong Eisenhower man.
Gradually he's drifted away
from the Truman administra
tion, now has few friends left
high up in government except
the Secretary of State. Mean
while, some of his old friends,
such as Jack HcCloy, former
High Commissioner for Ger
many, and Kenneth Royall, for
mer Secretary of War, have be
come. Ike's strongest backers.
And with McCloy slated high
on the list to be Secretary of
State, Frankfurter may end up
being just as close to the State
Department under the Eisen
hower administration as during
the Truman administration.
Though Frankfurter could re
tire from the Supreme Court
this week, private betting among
the jurists is that he won't.
Probably he'll remain on until
after Jan. 20, when Eisenhower
could appoint his successor
unless he wants to make a va
cancy for his old friend and stu
dent, Dean Acheson. If so, he'll
resign before January, giving
Truman a chance to give Ache
son an interim appointment.
Those who have talked to the
President-elect about cabinet
posts come away with the dis
tinct impression that he is not
going to appoint John Foster
Dulles as Secretary of State,
and that this all-important post
is more likely to go to Paul
Hoffman, the Marshall Plan ad
ministrator, or John J. McCloy,
former High Commissioner to
Germany. Both are extremely

Do students count? Do faculty
count? Do the considered opin
ions of our Consolidated Univer
sity president and our energetic
Chancellor count?
I gttess not, but why not? I
don't know. In spite of a sur
vey showing that we do stick
around on weekends and that
we use our weekends to good
advantage, despite known and
intelligent dissent from every
one involved, the trustee execu
tive committee has decided for
Saturday classes. This is pow
er, strict and unadulterated
legal, but is it fair, is it con
structive? Will it be the best
way of making us thinkers and
citizens? Shall we be better stu
dents, men. and women with
more well-rounded personalities
because of a one-shot three hour
extra?
No. It won't and can't. It may
decrease enrollment, it may
make Saturday night a real
hell, it may cramp studying,
and it may ruin the essence of
the quarter system concentrat
ed instruction with a weekend
for absorption.
You're mad. I'm mad. We're
concerned. But gripes at the
house, in Lenoir, or in the so
cial room won't take away Sat
urday classes. Strong-willed,
immediate action of the con
structive variety will make a
difference. Do this if you don't
want weekend classes:
1. Write to your parents. Ask
them to write trustees.
2. Wire Gov. Scott. He is
chairman of the Board of Trus
tees. 3. Sign the petitions circu
lated. 4. Attend mass meetings.
5. Express yourself to the
faculty, administration, and
others concerned.
I'm a senior. I'm not going to
be here in September, 1953. But
I sense with indignation what
Saturday classes will mean.
Seniors as well as other students
should voice their complaints.
The big thing about this
school has been that student and
faculty opinion have always
rated. Right now, our opinion
and the opinion of our teachers
is nothing.
Make your say count now.
able, with competent know-how
in foreign affairs.
While Dulles also has a rich
foreign-affairs background, Eis
enhower doesn't seem quite
comfortable with him. Their re
lationship is similar to that of
Truman and Jimmie Byrnes,
who was so aggressive and had
so much know-how that he
sometimes overshadowed his
boss.
Paul Hoffman, on the other
hand, has been taken back into
the full favor of the Eisenhower
smile. For a time Hoffman was
on the outs. One of the original
Ike-rooters and chairman of the
citizens for Eisenhower commit
tee, Hoffman soured a bit when
the General embraced McCarthy
and ell the other isolationists.
But toward the end ' he flew
back from California and came
out strong for Eisenhower.
Jack McCloy probably has the
best of all backgrounds to be
Secretary of State. He served as
assistant Secretary of War un

job of administering Germany,
