Many armchair educators have
long declaimed the classics Greek
and Latin primarily as dead or
dying languages, but a nationally
prominent UNC professor debunks
any such demise.
On the contrary, he has produc
ed evidence that the two langu
ages and related classics courses
are at present enjoying an unpre
cedented popularity in colleges
and universities throughout the
Dr. B. L. Ullman, Kenan pro
fessor of classical languages and
literatures, said Greek and Latin
are presently being taught to
such an extent at the college level
that colleges and universities all
over the nation can not meet the
demand for qualified instructors
in the two subjects.
He attributed the extreme short
age of qualified instructors indi
rectly to a revival of interest in
the classics since World War II.
Comparatively small teacher-producing
classics departments, are
not producing a sufficient number
of graduates to feed back into the
field as instructors, he said.
Citing the situation at UNC as
an example, Dr- Ullman said his
department receives an annual de
mand for college instructors . of
Greek and Latin four to five times
greater than the number of stu
dents .leaving the University for
Dr. Ullman said the UNC Clas
sics Dept., considered the out
standing classics center of the
South and one of the leading de
partments nationally,- . produce?
fewer than half a dozen qualified
college instructors each year, yet
his department has some 20 re
quests on file for instructors for
the coming school year.
These requests, he said, came
from leading institutions through
out the nation, including such
schools as Northwestern Universe
ity, Pennsylvania State College.
University of Texas, University of
Coeds Start Sorority
Activities With Tea
Over 400 coeds flocked to Gra
ham Memorial yesterday to start
Rush Week activities with the
Miss Isabelle McLeod, acting
dean of women; Miss Lila Ponder,
representative from the office of
the dean of women; Mary Gillespie
and Pat Dixon, president and vice
president of the Panhellenic
Council, along with sorority presi
dents, greeted the coeds.
Nan Brown, Stray Greek presi
dent, directed the prospective so
rority members to the guest book.
Panhellenic representatives and
rush chairmen served fruit punch,
mints and cookies.
The tea was the initial function
in Rush Week activities that will
keep the ladies on the run for the
next 12 days.
Monday and Tuesday nights co
eds must attend three one-hour
parties, 6:30-10 p.m. at the sorori
ties. Ice water, the only refresh
ment, will provide a break from
the "fruit punch tradition" at UNC
Three parties are scheduled for
Wednesday and two for Thursday.
Sunday is the next busy day with
four 45-minute afternoon parties;
Monday has three more of the

j Maryland, Brown University, Tu-
lane University and Wayne Uni
versity, as well as smaller schools.
They range from instructorships to
headship of a newly created de
partment in a state university.
All of the requests, he said,
were received during the first six
months of this year, and several
of them came from institutions
which have not previously offered
classics study in their curricula,
but are laying plans to install such
departments as soon as qualified
instructors can be obtained.
Ullman said the number of qual
ified instructors produced by his
department each year usually
two or three, and seldom more
than half a dczen is about par
for all institutions.
This, he said, plus the fact that
so many leading institutions are
in need of instructors, indicates
the problem is of nationwide pro
portion and, in his opinion, grow
ing worse with succeeding increas
es in study body enrollment.
Using the UNC department again
to illustrate his theory, Dr. Ull
man compared enrollment in the
two languages before World War
H with current figures.
In 1935 the University had a
relatively static enrollment of few
er than 100 students in its Clas
sics dept. By 1940 the figure had
grown to 144, but declined during
the war years to a low of 50 stu
dents in 1945. '
Following World , War H, clas
sics enrollment at UNC began a
steady climb which last year reach-
According to a survey completed
yesterday, all the fraternity and
sorority houses had completed the
garbage houses that were tQ have
been built by this year, with the
exception of the Pi Beta Ph Soror
ity. Their project is in the pro
cess of being completed.
Dr. O. David Garvin of the Dis
trict Health Dept. issued a sanitat
ion regulation last fall stating that
all fraternity and sorority houses
that served meals to their mem
bers were to build fly-tigh houses
in which to keep their garbage J
cans. These houses were to have
solid floors and drainage systems.
When a survey was made last
spring, approximately half the
houses had completed the project.
Of the 36 fraternities and sor
orities in Chapel Hill, 32 serve
meals. The four that don't serve
meals are Alpha Kappa Psi, Delta
Sigma Delta, Phi Delta Chi and
Psi Omega. The Alpha Delta Pi
Sorority hasn't built a garbage
house yet, since it is preparing to
move to a new location.
ed more than three times the us
ual pre-war figure. There were 319
students enrolled in the two lang
uages, plus an equal number at
tending classes on related classics
study, such as archeology and lit
To teach these students, the
Classics Dept. has six full time
instructors and professors, plus
four part-time instructors and 10
According to Dr. Ullman, the
rise of interest in classics actually
began shortly before World War II,
but dropped during the war and
did not become generally notice
able until the revival of interest
following the war.
He said it is difficult to single
out any particular reason for the
revival of interest, but summed
it up generally with what he term
ed "an awareness on the part of
many Americans that our Western
culture is a heritage from Greek
and Roman civilizations."
He also said American movie
makers are providing impetus to
the movement with such movies as
"'The Robe" and "Quo Vadis,"
which have Roman or classical
background stimulating public in
terest in old Western European
Some students, he conceded, take
classics courses in lieu of mathe
matics, then develop a genuine
interest in the courses, and con
tinue through advanced study.
Dr. Ullman offered no immedi
ate solution to the shortage ' of
classics instructors, but he noted
that increased funds for fellow
ships would greatly alleviate the
situation and would provide the
foundation for a gradual increase
in the size of classics departments
and the number of instructors pro
There are many students who
would continue classics careers af
ter completion of undergraduate
work, he said, if more financial
aid were made available to them
for continuing advanced study.
He noted that classics instruc
tors generally must process one
or more advanced degrees to qual
ify for college level teaching.
"To produce more teachers, we
must have graduate students," he
said. "And to get graduate stu
dents, we must have fellowships
and scholarships to offer them."
How do UNC students meet
their books? With reverence
and awe do they humbly ap
proach the seat of knowledge?
Eager scholars at the BoGker
teria flipped to the price first.
Cash registers were ringing
and fountain pens were leaking
on check books. Talk was loud,
but a few persons were merely
standing with vacant eyes.
A sophomore was gripeing
about a V inch book for $2.35.
"All the books are higher this
year," he wisely and uncalmly
Two freshmen were talking to
each other. "Got to get a Caro

Dance At Annual Coed Ball
Approximately 1,500 people attended the 1955 Coed Ball, held
in Woollen Gymnasium Friday night from 9 until midnight.
The ball was sponsored by the Orientation Committee under the
direction of Burt Veazey;
The Duke Ambassadors supplied the music for the three-hour
affair, and cokes and candy were supplied as refreshments. All dates
at the dance were coeds; however, the male stag line was large.
The decorations included a small garden set up in the middle of
the dance floor, and the band stand was also heavily decorated.
This was the second social affair of the season to which semi
formal dress was in vogue. The initial dance honored students from
