President Suggests Minimum,
Mot Maximum, Law Be Adopted
"We would like to see minimum uniformity to the extent that a
student can have at least three unexcused cuts, but will not be put
Oft attendance probation until having missed 20 percent of his classes,"
- fWe feel that how many cuts a teacher allows over and above the
Street provided three unexcused
cuts should be left up to, the dis
cretion of each individual teach
This is one of the changes in the
r.ew cut system which student body
president Tom Creasy proposed
yesterday to the Faculty Council.
. "Students believe in a uni
form' cut system, but only as
a " minimum one," said Creasy.
"This means that in no course
would students have less cuts
than is outlined in a uniform svs-
tem, but that, first and foremost, I
enforcement ot attendance is a
iuatter between individual instruc
tors and students," he continued.
Creasy said the change was sug
gested .because instructors vary
as. jo "stress on class lecture, stress
CO outside - reading and amount
tf ' teaching." He also said that
Students vary as to "ability to
learn best from class and ability
i learn best by their own efforts."
-' "Thus, , said the student body
president, "it is hard to make one
overall - hard . and fast rule that
would be just and adequate for
all- concerned or even a portion
of those concerned." :
. "I believe that uniformity is '
?ood, but only to a certain degree, I

Additional recommended chang
es which Creasy proposed to the
Faculty Council included a sug
gestion that the rule be cjhanged
f6 read " that only unexcused ab
sences during the two day period
before and after vacation should
eount as double cuts. Any student,
paid Creasy, with an excused ab
sence during the period, should
not be given a double cut.
, . Creasy also recommended thai
the part of the rule which says tha
the dean of a student's school will
decide whether that student may
continue in residence upon the
student's being dropped or hav'ng

He proposed that the number of
courses after which a student's

changed from one to two.

The bill recently passed by the
student Legislature ' which favored
the appropriation of $1,100 to the
University Band has been vetoed
by student body President Tom
Creasy, it was learned yesterday.
Creasy, who originally recom
mended the proposal, said, "Th1?
lack of legislative funds was the
primary reason for the veto.
Going into detail about the
thumbing down of appropriation.
Creasy .said "my original purpose
j m recommending to certain par
ties that the Legislature give th?
band vitally needed financial as
sistance was not that such legis
lation would furnish the band with !
all its needs, but that such an act
by a representative group would
gel the ball rolling and eventually
raise the band to the level that it.
as . far as support is concerned,
should be maintained at."
As to why he put the brakes on
the proposal after the University
rsrty had pushed it through the
Legislature, Creasy reasoned thrt
"the Audit Board appealed to me
that the Legislature simply did
not have the necessary funds in
its unappropriated balance to fa
cilitate such a bill." Creasy is a
UP member. . . , .
"I placed my veto on the bill,
thus killing it even though I
thought it was highly worthy, sole
ly because it was untimelv "and I
felt" it would endanger the proce-j
dures of student government Ly
digging into an already nearly
But why was the budget nearly
drained at this early date?
- Creasy answered, " "dormitorv
improvements last spring left our
appropriations at one of its low
j st ebbs. Our surplus has diminish
d and we. must .begin a building-
' urt nrAtflpD - -
Will the band try to raise funds
funds of its own accord?
To this Creasy replied, "I have
talked to band President Ken Pru
itt nd he seemed to feel that cer
tain members of the band hopea
that money could be raised."
Did the Legislative passage of
the bill giving money to the band
mean that it was starting a "give
away"' policy to any deserving or
ganization? "The band plays for many cam
pus functions and therefore they
deserve financial aid I do not
feel that other, organizations will
take this as a cue to demand ap
propriation," replied Creasy. j
But what of the band's future?
"I hope that something can be
worked out. Were it not for th?
untimeliness of this bill, as far as i
financial conditions were concern
ed, it would have gorte througu
without difficulty," said Creasy.
The exceedingly low financial
status, to which Creasy blamed the
turning down of the appropriation,
has already been felt in a number
of other campus organizations. The
Daily Tar Heel has been put on a
five-day-a-week operating basis
and several other groups have been
turned down requests for aid.
If a budgetary surplus is btult
up, will the band get monetary
To this question, Creasy gave an
emphatical 'Yes. They are certain
ly "deserving and I am sure that a
later request will be granted."

In Time Issue
Duke University "has but one
major job to do: not to grow up
which it has done already but
to grow older," sums up a six-pae
article on the University in the
current issue of Time Magazine.
The national news magazine co vers
Duke with some 13 pictures
11 of them in color and with the
lead article in its education sec
tion, concluding that "Duke his
gone far in its brief 30 years, and
perhaps its greatest asset is the
fact that it is so fully conscious
of how far it still has to go."
Noting that the University, cre
ated "almost overnight," led ob
servers to ask "what lay beneath
the ' fancy facade?" Today, Time
says, "Duke is in a better position
to answer that question than ever
before. If not yet out in front, it
is giving its older sisters in the
South an increasingly lively raca."
Time pays tribute to the late
President William P. Few and tne
"solid little liberal arts college

precedessor) but notes that "it was
not until 1949, when rangy (6 ft.
