IN CHARLOTTE SPEECH:
America's greatest weakness is
inadequate resources for relaxa
tion, recreation and use of the
creative imagination. Chancellor
Robert B. House said Wednesday
in Charlotte. !
Addressing a luncheon meeting
of the Charlotte Woman's Club,
he said "America is long on exhi
bition games and athletics partic
ipated in by the few and enjoyed
t almost to a fanatic extreme by
! the many."
"At the same time, the great
movement in physical education
is in the participation of the many
in all sports which have a carry
over value into mature life."
Ho-use said Americans need more
"matter-of-course instruction" in
music and art.
He said a thiru weakness is in
the field of books and reading.
The absence of books from liv
ing rooms of North Carolina or
the "equally disconcerting" look
of unused books is partly to
blame for a shortage of literary
interest in Tar Heel schools, he
"Education will grow better in
an atmosphere in which all of our
institutions home, church, com
munity, government and business
as well as schools, colleges and
universities are believed in and
"In other w ords," he said, "I be
lieve we do not ned new institu
tions, but need to man the insti
tutions wheh we have."

House said every educational
institution is in a state of crisis-
because of teacher shortage and
lack of suitable classrooms.
"Nevertheless, parents, teachers,
home, school, church and commun
ity all need to go deeper than
crisis thinking," he said.
"What we need is happy -concentration
on the basic and funda
mental values which lie deeper
than any crisis and will last long
er than the solution of any cris
is," House said.
Di Senate Was
In A Quandary
The Di was in a bit of a quan
dary the other night. They had
a bill, two speakers, a host of
guests, but no meeting.
The bill, calling for the resig
nation of secretaries Dulles and
Wilson had been debated and
was about to be put to a vote
when the quorum was ques
tioned. A roll count was taken and,
due t a lack of Senators,
President Pat Adams was forced
to declare the meeting non
existent, very much disappoint
ing the large gathering which
wasn't really there.
Howard Henry of the University
of Wisconsin has been nominated
and approved by the Graham Mem
orial Board of Directors as the
new director of Graham Memor
ial. In a meeting held Thursday
by the GM Board of Directors, it
was decided that Dr. William Po-
teat would send a letter to Henry
offering him the job as director of
the Studsnt Union to succeed the
present director, Miss Linda Mann.
Henry's nomination by the Board
of Directors has been approved
by Chancellor Robert House.
Henry, present director of the
Student Union at the University
of Wisconsin, was interviewed in
the spring of 1956 and was offer
ed the GM post beginning Sept.,
1936. This offer was rejected by
Henry for reason of salary and
The present salary which is be
ing ofiered Henry by the GM
Board is $8,000 annually. If Hen
ry accepts this offer, it is report
ed by the Board that he will be
taking a $1,200 cut in salary from
his present position.
Provided Henry accepts the of
fer he would take over his -GM
duties in July, 1957.
Student Body President Bob
Young announced that he would
send a telegram to Henry urging
him to accept the directorship and
assuring him of the Board's sup
port. Old Attendance
Rule In Effect
The School of Journalism has
completely reinstated the old class
attendance regulation limiting stu
dents to three unexcused absences.
According to the new regula
tion passed by the Faculty Coun
cil on Dec. 7, this is within the
letter of the law.
In effect, it nullifies work done
by a student government commit
tee which strove for liberalization
cf class cut regulations.
The new class , attendance regu
lation has in actuality effected no
changes in the School of Journal
ism's cut policy. The new regula
tion states, in part:
"Regular class attendance is a
student obligation; and a student
is responsible for the work, includ
ing tests and written work, of all
class meetings . . . The instructor
or the department may make uni
form attendance regulations."
The School of Journalism policy
on absences states:
1. A student is permitted three

AT IDC MEETING:
7 at urn's Plan Is Criticized
By PRINGLE PIPKIN
Jim Tatum's plan of quartering
all the football players in Cobb
was sharply criticized at the IDC
meeting Wednesday night.
"I am against having the foot
ball players in Cobb although
the idea of having them in a
smaller dormitory near the Mon
ogram needs further investiga
tion," said Sonny Hallford, Presi
dent of IDC. About half of the
members of the IDC took the
same position. Some did not want
to see the football players group
ed together in any domitory.
The IDC discussed the profit of
the UNC book exchange but de
cided to leave the investigation of
the matter up to a committee al
ready established for that purpose
by Bob Young. Bill Brach, Joyner
IDC Representative, commented
after the meeting, "Why should I
put someone else through school
when I have a hard enough time
putting myself through. If the Uni
versity inists on charging high
prices, why don't they use the mon
ey for the benefit of every one. They
ought to spend it to keep the top
notch faculty whom South Build
ing says are leaving because they
can't match other school offers."
