Consolidated University President Gordon Gray,
in his report to the trustees and the state this
week, ran the academic gamut.
His report included information about changes
in the past, plans for the future, a" statement
'about himself and his "situation" and summary
of the University's condition as of July i5, 1955,
Here is an analysis of the President's Report:'
"During the pastj five, years," wrote President
Gray, "a number.? of significant changes have
been made in the consolidated office and in
each of the three units for the purpose of
strengthening positions and procedures for the
better discharge of the academic jobs of the
University." v. ,; -
THREE FOLD 'f
Those changes, he said, include the creation
of new jobs 'and procedures. The reason was
"three-fold: to confirm control of academic af
fairs in the hands of academic people; to insure
that administrative facilities exist for the success
ful exercise of this, control; and, as the ultimate
object, to develop renewed and increased morale
and excellence in instruction, research and in at
tention to students."
Gray said "conscious attempts have been made
to strengthen the. position of the chancellors.
Policy, he said, "has been to provide the chan
cellors with maximum freedom in administering
the affairs of their respective institutions, con
sistent with the stated responsibilities 'of the
Two concrete powers the separate universities
have, he said, are: 'The business managers have
been made responsible directly to the chancellors;

authority .over athletics."
,At the University here, he said, the dean of
the College of Arts and Sciences has been given
"drastically- increased" authority" and "responsi
bility for a more successful and dynamic under
graduate instructional program in liberal arts."
The next step in the University's development,
said President Gray, is a "long range program of
personnel encouragement, promotion and recruit
ment. "The University is faced with a period of faculty
expansion to meet enrollments,
and, unevenly, of replacing a
relatively large number of facul
ty people approaching retire
ment. It is absolutely essential
that imagination, hard work and
planning be brought to bear im
mediately on the discovery and
recruitment of younger men and
women," 'he wrote.
To Be Held Tonight
A parade, pep rally and fazz concert will be sponsored tonight
by the University Club.
The parade will begin at Woollen Gymnasium with the University
Band leading it through' the campus and ending at Memorial Hall at

Plott of the University club.
Following the rally, a concert will be given in Memorial Hall by
a jazz combo from Durham, according to Plott.
Plott asked yesterday that students not crowd the band during
the parade because injuries may occur from such a thing. He remind
ed students that the Band donates its Jime in an effort to make the
pep rally a success.

Dean Hobbs also spoke of the
problem of parking, telling the
business fraternity the University
could not solve the problem 'by
putting small parking lots all over
the campus. The development of
large areas for parking would help
remedy the situation, he said. ,
In the future the grounds com
mittee has a plan of placing build
ings with their respective fields
instead of having them spread
over the campus, said Dean Hobbs.
There are plans for new dorms,
a student union, a YMCA and a
new armory, he concluded.

Dr. Taylor said "'staying up all
night studying usually results in
an empty blue book." He suggest
ed that the material should be

Dr. Taylor told the freshmen
he hoped he had "brushed aside

way of going about acquiring ma

President Gray termed the

current need in our administra

provide income and expenses

each dollar spent and more ef

cost of each unit of activity."
The machines, though they
would cost Ysome money initial
ly," would save money in the
long run, he said.
President Gray referred to the
fiscal control of the University
by the Bureau of the Budget,
"... all of us in the Uni
versity jnust understand that if
we are to have more flexibility
in the use of fiinds, it is proper
ly incumbent upon us to demon
strate that we can handle these
funds wisely and well, and eco

underway at the campuses of the
three Universities, pointing out
that "with a few exceptions, the
post-war building programs at
each of the three institutions
have been completed."

enrollment with physical plant,
