The Visiting Committee of the Board of Trustees comes to
campus today amid the greatest student crisis in a college gen.
Student leadership is crippled, and student self-government
has slipped and broken its backbone.
Perhaps some of the visiting trustees will feel that we exag
gerate, for few students are aware ok this crisis. .But in that
very fact-lies the problem. Students lack leadership in their
affairs-and they don't even realize it.
The University student body enjoys unique rights of self
government, making their own laws in the area of student af
fairs and appropriating a Sioo.ooo budget each year with no
faculty or administrative control. As a system, the Carolina
way is ideal and affords the best training in citizenship and
But, in the short span of a few years, the elected leaders of
tlits campus have forgotten their mission to lead.
A referendum notion of popular sovereignty has made the
student President ineffective. Lack of interest has turned the
student Legislature into a debating society thickly populated
with inexperienced freshmen and sophomores and well out
of contact with the mass of students. And the campus judi
ciary groups the last stronghold of leadership now have al
lowed themselves to get hopelessly aloof from their constitu
We drift, a- college generation without purpose. The think
ing element ol the campus is evidently either repulsed by the
coercive tactics of the present "leaders" or embittered by vain
efforts at reform.
Campus demagogues flourish by the handful, each dispens
ing his own brand of ' democracy, homespun and kept clean
for election use only. These students talk of "representing the
students" when they are reall talking about furthering their
own causes. The demagogues are full of gripes, but they have
no solution to campus problems.
As evidence of this disgusting situation, .we cite:'
i. The latest platlorms of both campus political parties and
their' mosts recent meetings. :
(The platlorms are artworks of 'meaningless generalities;
party meetings make a shame of the-democratic 'process.)

A "periodical report" from the
Men's Honor Council was issued
to The Daily Tar Heel yesterday.
"Thus far this fall," said the
report, "the Men's Council has
tried a total of 13 cases. Seven of
these occurred around the time
final exams were given last spring
and were held over until this fall.
In addition," the report said, "10
cases tried late last spring are in
cluded in this report.
"The council tried 40 students
in connection with these 23 cases,
33 for alleged Honor Code viola
tions, and two for alleged Campus
Code violations," said the report.
"Of the 38 tried on Honor Code
charged, 14 were found guilty,
and 24 not guilty," reported the
council. "Of these 14,- 11 were
suspended, and three placed on
probation for one or more semes
The report said, "Of the two
tried on Campus Code charges both
were found guilty. One was placed
on probation and the other given
an official reprimand."
"During this time," continued
the report, "four out of five re
quests for removal from probation
were granted, and all three re
quests for reinstatement into the
University , were granted."
The council reported, "The Sum
mer Council tried 11 students, in
seven cases. There were five Honor
Code cases involving seven stu
dents, six of whom were found
guilty, and one not guilty. Two
of the six were suspended and the
other four placed on probation for
one or more semesters. Of the four
students involved in two Campus
Code cases tried by the Summer
Council, two were found guilty
and given official reprimands. In
addition," said the report, "two
students were reinstated into the
University, and two students were
removed from probation.
"As evidence of the increasing

Carolina," said the report "four of
the 13 cases tried so far this fall
were reported by students.

Other major areas touched on by

Fowler urged the establishment of

(2) Student government finances.
Fowler urged that the Legislature

enabling the polls to be opened

According to the announcement

In a lot of trees such as those
on the campus, the formation of
this leaf abscission layer starts
when the days of fall become
shorter. If a dry spell lasts very
long the leaf abscission is speed

to break up soon after it has

of the cell walls. This breaking
up goes on until the leaf hangs
on to the stem only by strands

The frost and winds now step
in -to break up the abscission

If you go to the tropics, you

When you see leaves hanging

the abscission layer failed t
