The comparatively mild atmos

The two major phanges to the

"If the Legislature approves these

A TWO-PART SURVEY:
The Report On
(Editor's net: This is first of
two articles dealing with th re
port of North Carolina's Com
mission on Higher Education.
The next will deal with the
functioning of the system.)
By DAVE MUNDY
"State-Supported Higher Edu
cation in North Carolina," says
the title of the green-backed
pamphlet subtitled "The Report
of the Commission on Higher
Education." The commission was
created by the General Assem
bly in April of 1953 and ap
pointed by Governor Umstead in'
the fall of the same year.
To the person unfamiliar with
the state's institutions of higher
learning the report's description
of them would be quite inter
surface, but were "impossible" to
carry through. He explained that
although his faction was numeri
cally behind . the SP in passing
bills, the few that they had ram
med through were important and
workable enough to more than
compensate for the difference.
David Reid, SP leader, answered
the statement by saying, "The SP
has introduced and enacted mea
sures we felt were to the best
interest of the student body as a
whole. When officials of student
government are afraid to intro
duce legislation and work todawrd
the completion of any project be
cause they fear failure, then stu
dent government will be as in
effective as the measures intro
duced by the UP this year."

decides the validity of the com

complaint will receive a report
on his complaint from the Execu

student making the . complaint
wishes theni to be so. This policy
was adopted by the board to "pro

Policies And Emphasis
David' Mundy, former columnist for The Daily Tar Heel,
yesterday made a statement in which he formally announced
his candidacy fori the editorship of the newspaper. .
Mundy is a sophomore from Black. Mountain. He is clerk
of the Dialectic Literary Society.- ; -
Mundy's statement read as fol
lows: "I had hoped to see in the race
for the editorship an opportunity
for the students to make some
decisions regarding conduct and
policies of The Daily Tar Heel.
Tthat the two othfcr candidates
would be in the race, I know.
It was only this weekend that I
belatedly learned , that they have
formed a corporation and decid
ed to run as candidates for a
"This likelihood of any oppor
tunity for the students by vote
to express their desires concern
ing the conduct of The Daily Tar
Heel, and the very unfortunate
present condition of the student
newspaper, have promptd my can
didacy. "The candidates for co-editor
have served as associate editors
Of The Daily Tar Heel. At the
risk of being accused of "a person
al attack, I must declare that they
are in part responsible for the
present condition of the paper.
'.The news function of the stu
dent newspaper has been largely
ignored by, the editors.
"I cannot in justice blame the
news staff for faulty and scanty
coverage. The staff is pitifully
small and composed chiefly of
first-year students The task' of
campus news coverage is simply
beyond their limitations. I com
mend them for as well as they
"The two candidates, during
their period of responsibility this
year, have done little to main
tain a sizeable staff. I have seen
a great number of students come
up to The Daily Tar Heel offer
ing to 'help out.' They receive
no encouragement and leave. Their
nominal superiors, the news and
managing editors, simply have too
much to do themselves. Were it
plausible that the two candidates
reform, change their interests and
emphasis, and really work at the
job of publishing a paper, I would
not be a candidate.
"My candidacy is no part of
any plan to 'get' anyone. The pa
per needs whatever help that any
one can offer. Mr Kraar and Mr.
Yoder, both interesting writers,
are an asset to the paper as such.
It is their emphasis and manage
ment policies which give cause
"It is n0 plot to 'capture' the
group. Were I editor, I would ex
pect to be much too busy in the
management and maintenance of
an effective staff. My own opinion
quite' definitely labeled as my
own, would be offered on such
subjects as I thought of importance
to the student body. All other
opinions, of whatever degree,
would be quite welcome.
"In short, I do not feel that
the duty of the editor is to stim
rlate opinion, challenge unjust
prejudices and make students re
alize why they think as they do.
The editor's, or the co-editors'
duty is instead' to 'get out' a pa
per' of interest and value to the
entire, student body.
"It is that for which I expect
to work, and for which end I
expect to be a , candidate f or the
SP endorsement next Monday."
