The fight against Saturday clas

ned what President Ham Horton
termed "the big push over the
Thanksgiving holidays.
'We want to wage a quiet, per
sonal, man - to - man campaign
which in-the long run will be
more effective." said Horton in
outlining the campaign.
The plan, which is being moni
tored by student government of
ficials is this:
Over the Thanksgiving holidays
every student should plan to pay
visit or write a letter to the
trustee in his locality. Before do
ing this, the student should check
by Horton's office in Graham Me
morial and tell workers there
which Trustee he plans to see. In
this way, all the Trustees will be
seen and not too many students
will go to any one.

the number of students who are
going to see him, and the Trus

In explaining what he called
the denial of Christ's deity, Rev.

If you're thinking about cut

There is one consolation, how

cut both days, you won't be

The fine for holiday cuts is a

Wilson Visits
Texas, Talks

"You can't pay and keep a top-
notch faculty with only pleasant
atmosphere," UNC Vice-president
Logan Wilson told a Daily Texan
reporter last week at Austin, Tex.
The president-elect of the Uni
versity of Texas, on a two-day
orientation trip, said that "Feed
ing his family is more important
to a professor than any sense of
I loyalty to a university.
In discussing low salaries of
University of Texas professors,
Wilson said, "Professors resign ev
ery day from low pay at small
colleges as well as large univer
sities." But the University of Tex
as should at least be able to com
pete with salaries of other uni

A full professor's salary aTex-

"Please be assured that I am
first, last and always opposed to
a five and one-half day week for
any of our State educational in
stitutions and will continue to
register my protest if and when
I have the opportunity, Harris as
serted. He concluded, "It is my humble
opinion that the adoption of a
five and one-half day week is set
ting our great University back at
least twenty-five years. We have
a most progressive administration
at the University now, and in my
opinion, a move of this kind
would be tragic both to person
nel and students."
