riendly competition and a

Me adventure in learn-
t grades, the boys did even
san expected. Because of
the higher level at which the bas
ic courses were conducted, addi
tional credit was given for . the
extra ground covered. With one
exception, the boys in the special
group are two full courses ahead
of normal schedule.
Conceived as a possible answer
to the unsolved problem in this
country of how the gifted may te
furnished an .education suited' to
their talents, the program was ini
tiated by four UNC professors Who
taught the freshmen in four basis
courses: mathematics, philosophy,
history and English. The students
were kept together as class in
these four subjects.
The four professors are Edward
A. Cameron in mathematics, Ever
ett W. Hall in philosophy, James
E. King in history, and William S.
Wells in English.
Besides taking: , the four basis
coursesthe students attend class
es in other subjects with the gen
eral run of freshmen. Most of the
boys in this year's special group
are also taking chemistry.
In attempts to interrelate the
several subjects, - the professors
"'studiously avoided strained, ar
tificial and superficial corre- x
latiens." The integrity of each of
the individual disciplines was
preserved. But there were op
portunities for cross-references,
and a limited amount of work
was assigned which cut across
. The students taking part were
selected from 'a larger group cho
sen on a basis of high school re
cords and recommendations of
school principals. Several dozen
were invited to take a battery of
tests to ascertain their general
college aptitude and proficiency in
English and mathematics. Those
placing at the top were selected.
20 residents of North Carolina and
six from out of state, and the in-
state and out-of-state ratio is about
the same for this years' group.
In the 1954-55 group were seven
students holding $1,250 Morehead
scholarships. In this year's group
there are 11 Morehead Scholars.
Based on the first year's experi
ence, including appraisals by the
freshmen themselves, a few
changes are being made this year.
The most notable is the shifting of
philosophy from the first to the'i
second semester, so that the work
of the first semester will serve as
a preparation for the "shock of
abstract thinking.' It is unusual
for freshmen to study philosophy,
but it is a part of the experimental
program because of the role of
philosophy in interpretating and
interrelating the other basic areas
Most of the boys come from
fairly well-to-do homes, but a
few of them have to get extra
financial assistance. One of last
year's group worked eight hours
a day in a texffle mill while he
was in high school. He was "a
self-help student at the Univer-'
sity. He did good work in his
studies - -by normal standards.
But when some additional finan
cial aid was obtained for him,
and he was relieved of extra
out-of-class labors, his grades
immediately shot up and so did '
hi's-'rnorale.''-''-' J----i -
What about the pioneer 26 su
perior freshmen? Now that they
are sophomores, will they continue
to be t watched and guided?
No second-year program has as
yet been worked out for the spe
cial group. However, their faculty
advisers in the General College are
following their progress and they
will be permitted to advance as
rapidly as their progress justifies.
One other by-product of the
project is an additional experiment
this year in having 26- average
freshmen take four courses to
gether, so that they may benefit
individually from the esprit de
corps of their own group. Prof.
William Wells is withdrawing from
the venture with the superior
freshmen and has organized the
basic "program for the 26. Prof.
Wells' palace with the superior
group is being taken by Prof. Pet
er Phialas of the English Department.

Deacs Score Four
In Last Half Of
By WAYNE BISHOP
Wake Forest's Demon Deacons exploded with a deadly
accurate passing attack in the final two stanzas yesterday af
ternoon at Groves Stadium, and used that offensive weapon to
down a luckless Carolina eleven by 25-0.
The Deacons took advantage of every opportunity and
capitalized on the terrific passing
of quarterbacks Charlie Carpenter
and Nick Consoles to march off
with the decision after a scoreless
first half. The Tar Heels showed a
good offensive that rolled until
some penalty or fumble would stop
the offensive. Two Carolina touch
downs were called back by penal

The two teams started off the
game from the start with one of
the most exciting scoreless first
halves ever played in Groves Sta
dium. On the third play of the
game Consoles fired a 26 yard pass
to end Jack Ladner to put the ball
on the Carolina 30. From there
the Tar Heels held on and took the
ball on downs.
After one first down the Tar
Heels had fumbled the all back to
Wake Forest at the 48. Consoles
started pitching again and fired
two straight completions before
Dave Reed stopped the march with
a brilliant interception at the 18.
For the remainder of the first
period and the first three minutes
of the second quarter, Will Frye
won a-punting duel. with Cons'oles.
With four minutes gone in the
second stanza. Consoles punted a
beauty that Ed Sutton took in on
his 33 yard line. Sutton faked a
beautiful handoff and raced 49
yards down the sidelines before
he was finally hauled down at the
Wake 16 yard line. On the next
plav Howard Williams fumbled
and Wake Forest recovered.
Within two minutes the Deacons
were knocking a the Carolina
goal. Consoles went to the air and
hit two straight .passes. He then
fired a. 45 yard pass to John Par
ham at the UNC 2, but-the Deacs
were offsides on the play andMt
was called back.
