Having Any
Red Faculty
A charge that some teachers at
Duke are "making contact with
the Communist Party" yesterday
was called "without foundation"
by Dr. Charles E. Jordan, vice
president in charge of public
relations at Duke.
J-.0U1S farKer ui Elizabthtown
told a Goldsboro audience Tues
day 'that he had received in
formation twice about Duke fac
ulty members. Parker, the im
mediate past State Commandei
of the American Legion, did no;
name the teachers or give hL
source, but said he had confi
dence in the source of informa
tion. Dr. Jordan said that "Mr. Par
ker's statement is without foun
dation. He explained that with
500 or 600 persons on our faculty,
"it isn't always possible to know
their inner feelings, but their
loyalty has never been question
ed."
Parker Tuesday night said "I
know for a fact that the FBI is
investigating Duke faculty mem
bers." William Murphy, agent in
charge of the North Carolina FBI,
said, "No comment."
The Durham Sun said in an
editorial yesterday that " any im
plication that Duke University is
encouraging, protecting or nur
turing communism is ridiculous."

An Editorial
We Ask Why
Last summer, a group of politicians decided once more
that it was time for a change. On Tuesday, November 4,
they asked the American public what they thought, and
the population of the United States voted in favor of the
change. The system was altered as a result of majority
approval.
Last Monday, a group of Trustees decided once again
that it was time for a change. In years past, they have
asked University students and faculty what they thought,
and have received negative response, an answer that
concluded, "the advantages of the five-day -class week
out-weigh the disadvantages." Because a majority of those'
involved have repeatedly protested plans for a six-day
class week program, we hope this mass opinion will be
upheld.
Whatever happens, we ask the student body to con
duct an intelligent campaign against Saturday's heroes,
confining your activities to the most direct methods of
protest. A successful campaign can be lost in violent re
bellion. Petitions, letters to parents, and talks with the
Trustees will be much more effective than war dance
techniques.
We have one question to ask the Trustees: Why?
Why is it necessary for South Building Bell to ring out
the old system every Saturday morning? Our academic
budget has managed very well on five days a week. Why
tax us with an extra day?
If the weekend exodus is their reason, we wish to re
mind them of the survey taken last spring quarter which
showed the exodus problem to be a myth.
Everybody needs a day to recapitulate, a catch-all day
to spend at leisure. Students and faculty need a time to
reorganize for the coming week, student instructors need
Saturdays to work on how to be better teachers in the
future. The reasons for free Saturdays are obvious. The
argument for Saturday classes is nebulous. Why, then,
should we change a system that already works?
Why?

President Says
University Isn't
To Be Baby Sitter
By Rolfe Neill
If the Trustees want to keep
students here on the week
end, "it's not the part of the
University to play baby sitter
to what is essentially a family
problem."
This was the problem as
President Ham Horton saw it and
presented it to a student rally
yesterday afternoon at Memorial
Hall. However, if students are as
"ackadaisical about Saturday
?lass attendance as they were
about trying to prevent the ex
tra class day, there'll be no need
for professors to call roll. Only
an estimated 350 attended the
meeting yesterday.
Horton deplored the fact that
the Executive Committee in its
decision ignored the "advice of
Administration officers who cer
tainly should know what's best
for their school." However, he
continued, "it's an honor for stu
dents to have such men (Gray
and House) as allies."
Consolidated President Gordon
Gray and UNC Chancellor R. B.
House both iold the Trustee com
mittee that sentiment here among
students, faculty and administra
tion was against Saturday classes.
Horton held out hope that "if
we convince them (Trustees) this
thing is not for the best interests
of the University, they won't push
it any further." He went on to
point out that faculty members
utilize the long weekend for re
search; students make use of it
for study, while other students
need Saturday to work and sup
plement meager finances.
The student body president
drew a laugh when he quoted a
woman instructor here as saying
"industry and coal miners are
driving toward a five-day week,
must we regress?"
Horton said he saw no need
to take five days work and spread
it over six which is apparently
what the Trustees plan to do,
he interpreted. He cited the Trus
tee Visiting Committee report in
1949 which was against Saturday
classes and called attention to
the fact that "some of these same
men axe now for Saturday clas
ses." Horton concluded that "we can
win ... if we stick together."
"Sobriety, logic and restraint"
would be necessary to a victory,
he said earlier.
Walt Dear, chairman of the
Publications Board and editorial
candidate for The Daily Tar Heel,
also spoke to the assembly al
though he didn't "pretend to be a
speaker." He had the small crowd
clapping with his suggestion:
"Instead of Saturday classes,
Mr. and Mrs. Trustee, how about
a huge student union which will
give up something to do over
the weekend? How about bowl
ing alleys, skating rinks, Univer-sity-owried
pool tables and dance
rooms . . ."
Wallace Hanchey, Carolina
Beach freshman, seemed to have
the best Saturday-class-protest
idea offered fiom yesterday's aud
ience. He suggested having the
high school seniors due to enroll
here next fall as freshmen write
to the Trustees discouraging
lengthening of the school week.
Small Fire Put Out
At Sigma Chi House
The Sigma Chi House was all
confusion late yesterday after
noon when painters, scorching
paint on the columns in front of
the house, accidentally set fire
to the insides of one of the col
umns. Hayward Washburn, a Sigma
Chi, discovered the blaze and put
in a call for the Chapel Hill fire
Department.
