(IP) Better training for teach

new dean of the University of
North Carolina School of Journal
Dr. Luxon gave his views on
journalism training to members of
the Eastern Carolina Press Asso

group's fall meeting. It was his
first public speech since he re
cently took over as dean replacing
Oscar J. Coffin, who retired.
"There is just as much reason
for . professional education in
journalism as there is for any
other profession," Dean Luxon
declared. "If I didn't have confi

years in it and I would not have

Wallace's doctor said yesterday
that Jim's condition is "greatly im
proved". If his condition continues
to improve ; he should be out by
early next week.
Dr. Luxon, who cme to North
Carolina from Ohio State, said
all teachers in professional schools
of journalism should have news
paper experience, preferably in an
executive capacity on a large 6r
small newspaper. "This teaches
them to make decisions," he ex
plained. He urged cooperation between
journalism schools, press associ
ations 'and newspapers. He sug
gested that journalism teachers
should continuously engage in re
search, and spoke in favor of using
campus newspapers as a labora
tory for journalism schools.

Student government leaders, a
football player, and the chairman
of the faculty athletic committee
got together yesterday to air their
views on a proposed new scholas
tic requirement for athletes.
Up for discussion was a Joel
Fleishman-sponsored student Le
gislature bill requiring athletes to
maintain an overall grade of "C"
General agreement was reached
by the group, which included Dr.
A. W. Hobbs, chairman of the
faculty committee on athletics, and
Marshall Newman, Carolina quart
erback, that passage of the bill as
it was written would constitute
discrimnation against athletes;
members of such other extra-cur-riculars
as the band and the pub
lications staffs are not required
to have a "C" average. Candidates
for elective positions must have a
C average to be eligible for elect
ion, but are not required to main
tain the average.
Fleishman, a Student Party
member who introducted the bill
independently, agreed to rewrite
the bill to include all extra-curricular
activities. He wll be as
sisted in the rewrite by Phin Hor
ton, University Party member who
pledged his support to a rewrit
