Others Must Not Make 'C's'

Many students in the School of Business Administration are ex

good grades in other parts of the University are subject, a check

subjected to criticism.
A fair degree of uniformity is
provided to non-instructional

N. C. State ranks at the top,

Acting under the terms of the

member of the Consolidated Uni

scholastic year, has made the
greatest contribution to the wel

assistant professors range from
$5,000 to $3,000, as do instruc

most instances higher than those
of assistant professors.
Considerable concern is ex
pressed in the report regarding
the per student subsidy given
students at each institution. The
budgeted student-per-capita cost
(paid by the state) is higher at
State, WC, Western Carolina,
Pembroke and N. C. College at
Durham than at UNC. The smal-.
lest state subsidy, $257 per stu

DTH Probers Finish
Meets With Staffers
The committee investigating The Daily Tar Heel met yesterday
with the newspaper's staff to air complaints ranging from questions
of staff to the editorial page to the Campus Seen box.
This was the last open meeting of the committee, which was ap
pointed after a legislature meeting
calling for an investigation of The j lookout for more staff. For exam-
Daily Tar Heel. Wednesday and
Thursday the committee heard sug
gestions and complaints from stu
dents. The complaints centered around
news coverage. Many called for
more student news covered by
more reporters. Other suggestions
concerned The Eye of the Horse,
editorial opinion, (rather evenly
divided pro and con), the reap
pearance of Campus Seen and
more intramural sports coverage.
At yesterday's meeting the main
topic discussed was the acquisition
of more staff. Charles Hyatt asked
what incentives were used to get
people up to The Daily Tar Heel
office. He suggested putting re
porters on a small salary. Asso
ciate Editor Ed Yoder replied,
"Putting reporting on a mercen
ary scale would be impractical
considering the complication of
petty cash transactions."
Managing Editor Fred Powledge
added that the student Legislature
could give the suggestion consid
eration, but that perhaps "non
money payments, such as a book
for the best news story of the
week," might be better.
Tom Lambeth then asked for
what reasons students leave the
staff. Powledge answered, "The
fact lies in how much time people
want to spend on the paper," he
said. A lot of people come up at
the beginning of each semester
looking for girl friends or their
names in the paper, but it "is im
possible for a daily paper to keep
people around y. ho just don't want
to work," explained Powledge.
Lambeth then asked what ef
forts were made to get news staff
members. Powledge answered that
Editor Charles Kuralt went to
freshman camp to talk about the
paper. Also, he said, letters were
written to high school journalism
teachers asking them to tell their,
students about The Daily Tar Heel.
Editor Kuralt explained that The
Daily Tar Heel was always on the
tion of members to meet the cen
tennial speaker when she arrives
in Durham on Monday morning.
She will return to Chapel Hill with
the delegation and will be conduct
ed on a tour of the campus. A
banquet at the Carolina Inn in
pie, when people write in excep
tional letters, "we often go see
them and ask them to work for
us," he explained. Most capable
people are already interested in
something else, he. added.
Former Assistant Sports Editor
Bob Dillard, in answer to a ques
tion concerning the use of Asso
ciated Press wires, explained that
the wire is used mostly by the
sports department. The students
are interested in national sports,
he said, and would be disappointed
if it were a day late.
In reply to numerous queries
about the editorial page, Kuralt
said, the editorial page is "an edi
torial decision and responsibility."
Charles Hyatt asked about the
effect of the editorial column on
the state of North Carolina. "This
business that citizens of the state
resent the University because of
the editorial page is pure fiction,"
said Kuralt. Except for a few op
inions such as those of John Wash
ington Clark, the "situation does
not exist," he continued.
Ed Lipman asked how many out
side . subscriptions The Daily Tar
Heel has. Five or six hundred, re
plied Kuralt. Papers are also sent
to the members of the Visiting
Board of Trustees and to the gov
ernor, he added. "I think this does
more good than harm," stated Ku
ralt. In closing the meeting, chairman
Jack Hudson said, 'We've learned
quite a bit about journalism."
Editor Kuralt said, "If any have
been sufficiently interested to
come and work for us, we'd wel
