Is Vital To Faculty
The recent projxwal to hike tuition for out-of-state stu
dents attending the three Consolidated' University units
has drawn criticism from the UNO Graduate School.
Associate Dean A. K. King said the proposal, if passed,
would eventually deprive the University of some distinguish
ed faculty members.
Dean King pointed out the

here and later join the UNC fac

port to UNC Chancellor Robert B.
House, the high caliber of out-of-state
undergraduates who have lat
er taken graduate work and be
come members of the faculty.

Frank Crowt her Elected
1958 Symposium Head
Frank Crowther, sophomore i
from Chewy Chase, Md.. has been,
elected chairman of the 1958 Car-j
olina Symposium on Public Af
fairs. He was" elected Monday by a
vote of the Interim Committee and
the new committee in the Assem
bly Room of the Wilson Library.
Crowther said the "prospects
for next year's Symposium are
extf emely high." He said he be
lieved the "only restrictions we
have, aside from those of finance,
are those we place on ourselves
and our capabilities."
He expressed gratitude and ap
preciation to the 1958 committee
and assured them he would "try to
uphold the confidence they have
p!id in me" by the election.
Our committee, he said, is fully
capable of "carrying on the stand
ard that was set by the 1956 or
ganization." He also thanked the Interim
Committee and its chairman Jim
Exurn. "Without their efforts and
assistance, our new organization
would have been at quite a loss
and would have been much longer
in: organizing and preparing our
selves for 1958."
The 1958 Symposium, the
seventh in UNC's history, brought
indispensable benefits the
graduate students. He listed three
other factors to be considered in
getting good graduate students:
1. Stipends paid to graduate
students in appointments should
be raised by twenty per cent.
2. Housing for married grad
uate students must be improved
in quality and quantity for that is
an important consideration in
(nmnfltiiinn frit oHlo cmoHii tf
"Should those three factors be
materially improved in the next
few years, the general quality of
the University's graduate program
vculd attract a sufficient number
of the finest minds of the nation
to revitalize continuously our
teaching, service and creative
functions," Dean King said.
He said the University is among
the twenty five most productive
"nstitutions of higher learning in
'he United States.
"There has been assembled here
in Chapel Hil intelkectual re

state's most priceless asset," he
