Planned to study the humanities
as preparation for a business ca

Humanities Conference and a snStll
group of business men whose firms

Purpose of the session is to see
if the two associations feel they
can find a common ground on
which to work and if so to plan a
larger conference next spring.
Dr. Sturgis E. Leavitt of the
University, former chairman and
now editor of the Southern Hu

On Display At
An exhibition of water colors
and drawings, selected from the
annual exhibition of the Whitney
Museum of American Art, is being
shown in Person Hall Art Gallery.
Many nationally known Ameri
can artists are represented, such
as Lyonel Feininger, John Marin,
Morris Graves, Hans Hofmann, and
Jackson Pollock. Their works set
the pace for the exhibit, reflect
ing in ' their various styles the I
many facets of contemporary art.
Also shown are works of Rich
ard Koppe, Willem de'Kooning, and
Gabor Peterdi. "The many styles
do not detract from the impact of
the exhibit, but rather compliment
one another. This assures a ct
heasive and forceful review of the
important elements of modern
art," said John Alcott.

degrees colder than the lowest

Today it will start warming up
a little, but last night the tem
perature went down to "28 de

is due to a storm off the coast
of North Carolina which has
been sending icy northeasterly
blasts down our necks.
Chapel Hill service stations
yesterday reported a boom on
anti-freeze that started early, in
the morning and never let up.
One service station said they
had about 30 cars at a time all
day long. Another station re
ported having 12 boys doing no
thing but put In anti-freeze

mated that by 4 in the afternoon

a lot of calls for coal and oil,
since most people seem to wait
for the first cold snap before
getting in their fuel supply.
The clothing stores downtown
had a run on topcoats, raincoats,
hats and gloves. One clothing
merchant said he had sold out
all his rain hats, and most of his
felt hats, besides doing a brisk
business in heavy tweed top

Dr. Robert L. Linker, professor
in the French department, opened
a series of Cobb dorm "smokers"
In an informal chat with aBout
100 Cobb men, Dr. Linker dis
cussed "the good old days in Chap
el Hill," stressing the fact that
student-faculty relationship is hot
now as close as it once was.
Dr. Linker brought out that if a
better relationship could be built
up college life would mean
much more to students, and alum
ni returning to the campus would
feel they were returning home to
visit old friends.
A leader in promoting better
student-faculty relations for many
years, Dr. Linker was awarded a
Di-Phi award last year for his ef
forts along this line.
It was appropriate that Dr. Link
er be chosen as Cobb's first guest
speaker because it was largely
through his efforts as a dormitory
club member while a student here
that the first provision for social
rooms was made.

Princeton Prexy Denounces
ROTC As 'Intellectually Thin'
PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 6

Corps structure in the American
college is made up of subjects that
are "intellectually thin" and man

to President Harold M. Dodds of
Dr. Dodds said that this is the
most basic faculty criticism of
the system and Is a sound one.
"The defects in the ROTC studies
should be corrected," he added.
His remedy calls for a close
integration befween college and
ROTC courses, and a closer alli
ance between academic and mili
tary professors. He pointed out
that "total war is more than a
strictly military problem. The

of the know how' and should be

geopolitics. "Officers and civilians
alike need fuller knowledge of the

Gray Not Impressed By
Merii Of Accreditation
The question of accreditation for Carolina's un-accredited School of
Journalism brought comment from President Gordon Gray yesterday.
"I'm not impressed by accreditation,", he said,
"I feel," Gray said, "that, an ag-
credited standing is not very
important, for the School of Journ
alism." Moreover, he said, "J am
not convinced of tUft worth of
accreditation in general, except
in cases involving legal require
ment." Gray's comments , came in re
sponse to Daily Tar Heel ques
tions. The Daily Tar Heel recently
took an editorial stand in opposi
tion to t!ie selection of Dr. N. N.
Luxon as Dean of the Journalism
School. The editorial suggested
Luxon, a Ph.D., was chosen over
present professors in the school in
order to bolster the school's' case
for an accredited rating.
But Gray said accreditation
didn't enter into the decision. He.

with an accredited rating which
"don't match" the Carolina School

South Carolina football game will

includes refreshments and infloor
entertainment. It will be at the

ial. Sponsored by the Recreation
Committee of SUAB, the Fr0!ic,
which is held on Saturdays of
out-of-town games, will be pre
sented from two to five o'clock,
er classroom hours and exercises.
The cure for the scholastic thfn-
ness of the ROTC curricula is not
to load on more of the same
stuff," Dr. Dodds continued.
The criticism that civilian and
military discipline do not mix is
without foundation," he said. He
pointed out that discipline in the
ROTC has little semblance to dis
cipline in actual service duty.
"The campus remains distinctly
civilian in spirit, and the same
is true for the officer candidates,"
ne concluded. -

Rev. Jones Urges
"The YMCA should give a stu-

he is learning with what he ought

"College has a way of dividing

By Charles Kuralt
President Gordon Gray yester
day defended the Admiinstration
allocation of $10,000 of last year's
campus store profits to athletic
Gray said he thought the funds
25 percent of the $40,000 store
profits- "should have gone to ath
letes under the circumstances.".
But he made' it clear he doesn't
think a slice of the mqney should
necessarily continue to go for
athletic grants in the future.
The $30,000 bulk of the funds
went into the University's general
scholarship fund, but will be ad
ministered as "grants-in-aid."
It was "a combination of fat
tors," Gray said, which led to the
Administration's allocation of the
money to athletic grants.
These are two
of the factors
he referred to?
from the stores
last year by
order of the
Board of Trus
tees. The Board
gave the Administration a free
hand with regard to "nature and
number" of the grants. It avoided
mention of the word, "scholar
ship." It did not make scholastic
attainment a prime basis for mak
ing the awards.
And at the time of the alloca
tion of the $10,000 to athletes, St
least $30,000 of book store profits
was going for athletic subsidy at
North Carolina State College.
Because of these two situations,
the Administration felt justified
in delivering the profits slice to
athletic grants here.'"
However, Gray pointed to his
statement on the subject made
two days ago. In that statement,
the President indicated he is
!not convinced scholarships de
rived from student money should
be earmarked for athletes, or "any
; P-rticular group of students."
Store profits allocation at State
is being steadily reduced by Ad
ministration order. It is believed
this could mean elimination of the
allocation for athletic grants at
both State and Carolina in the
next few years.
And Gray reminded of two
other facts: That students other
than athletes benefit by the pres
ent arrangement. They get $30,000
in scholarships they have not re
In addition, Gray said, "In all
this discussion about what should
be done with the money, we are
likely to overlook the fact that
athletes are students, too."
"I believe," he said, "that the
normal scholastic average among
participants in varsity sports is
higher than the student body

ministration statement on the
grants-in-aid question may be

He said that the University Is
a good place "to learn to appreci
ate people. Now is our chance to
get out and relate ourselves to
people of different faiths and out
looks. This is part of the avenue
of life that the Y offers."
"If you can bring the things of
life, relationships of people, and
the relationships of the ultimate
together, you have brought every
thing together," added Jones.
"It is difficult to live a whole
life, yet, until you do, you don't
find the true purpose of yourself
and the University," he concluded.
