For the University of North Car
alina, 1961 was a year of progress
and disappointment, happiness and
sorrow, like any other year. Like
other years too, the year at UNC
was reflected in the news columns
of the Daily Tar Heel.
There was a somber side to the
news, of course: basketball scan
dals, cyanide deaths, and the los
ing end of a state bond election.
In other moments, Carolina lost
a basketball coach and gained $7
million from Uncle Mot.
Theater integration and deferred
rush came in and so did John F.
Kennedy, the first president to
make the scene since FDR came
here in 1939.
All things considered, 1961 was
a newsworthy twelvemonth for UN
C students. Here, the staff of the
Daily Tar Heel rates the top ten
news stories of the year:
1. On October 12 President Ken
nedy came to the university to
keep a campaign promise that he
made Governor Hodges before the
presidential election, and to accept
an honorary degree on the univer
sity's 168th birth.
In a speech that was not the
major foreign policy address that
was expected, Kennedy encourag
ed the intellectuals of the country
to use their resources for the
good of the country. Kennedy told
over 30.000 persons in Kenan Stad
ium, "Regardless of your field, I
urge you to recognize the contri
bution which you can make as
educated men and women to intel
lectual and political leadership in
these difficult days."
2) On October 6 two students
were found dead in their Cobb
Dorm beds. William Henry Harri
son Johnson, Jr., 24, a graduate
student ' from Statesville and
James Michael Barham, 21, a
junior from Burlington, were both
ruled victims of cyanide poison
. An intensive police investigation
accompanied by state-wide spec
ulation followed. Yesterday, after
months of investigation when the
headlines died down, a superior
Court solicitor, ruled a tentative
By action of the faculty, the time of an examination may not
be changed after it has been fixed in the schedule. Quizzes are not
to be given in this semester on or after Monday, January 15, 1961
The Official Class Roll and Grade Report will be prepared by
the Data Processing Section and forwarded to the departments prior
to the examination period. As in the past, the original copy will be
returned to the Office of Records and Registration, the second copy
(canary) is to be retained by the department, and the third copy
' (goldenrod) is to be kept by the instructor.
" Grade reports are to be handed in to the department office
within 72 hours after the scheduled time of the final examination.
The department chairman shall be responsible for recording receipt
of each grade report (the Form DR-1 may be used for this) and for
forwarding it promptly to the Office of Records and Registration.
In unusual cases, if it is clearly needed, an extension of the time
limit, preferably not to exceed 48 hours, may be approved by the
department chairman or the dean of the school concerned. The
Office of Records and Registration must be gjven notice of the
delay. (Faculty Council, May 6, 1960.) Machine processing of grades
makes it urgent that all grades be turned in on time.
All permits to take examinations to remove grades of "Exc.
Abs." or "Cond." must be secured from the Office of Records and
Registration prior to the exam. No students mav be excused from a
scheduled examination except by the University Infirmary in case
of illness or by his Dean in case of any other emergency com
pelling his absence. , -

headlines. On January 10 the
NCAA handed the UNC basket
ball team a one year probation
for "excessive entertainment of
prospective student athletes."
Then again on April 28, Lou
Brown, a former Carolina player,
was named as a co-conspirator in
attempts to bribe college basket
From this many repercussions
developed that restricted big time
basketball in North Carolina. Rul
ings handed down from . the
trustees of the consolidated Uni

ball scandals was the over-ruling

Chancellor William B. Aycock.

to the noils and voted down the

begun earlier in the fall at the
Carolina Theater and was followed

of its refusal to halt the Indian invasion of Goa.
He proclaimed an immediate boycott of most U. N. activities.
"The United Nations is not only useless but actively harmful," he

"I do not yet know whether we shall be the first country to

JFK Calls Up More Reserves
PAUM BEACH, Fla. President Kennedy Wednesday ordered
activation of two new permanent Army divisions totaling 31,712 men

The chief executive made the announcement after conferring with

Army sources in Washington said more than half the men in the
new divisions would be draftees who have had eight weeks or more
training at replacement training centers. The remainder would be
taken from existing Army units.

During 12 two and one half hour

of these enrolled in the Greens

Given To State
A plan aimed at hastening the
building of new dormitories at
state-supported colleges is expect
ed to be presented today to the
Advisory Budget Commission by
representatives of the State Board
of Higher Education.
James Wadsworth of the UNC
Housing Office said that he knew
of no plan to hasten construction of
Carolina's three new men's dormi:
tories and doubted that such a plan
would be feasible.
Officials pointed out that this
plan would have the effect of per
mitting colleges to proceed with
dormitory construction almost a
year sooner than if they waited for
the 1963 General Assembly to act.
The plan calls for a "gentle
men's agreement" under which the
Budget Commission would recom
mend to the General Assembly that
the state pay half the cost of the
buildings. The colleges would pay
the other half from dormitory rent
als. Only dormitories included in the
recently defeated bond issue would
be included in the proposal.
Students in the infirmary yes

Haynes, Gutcrinc Lemmond, Sue
Woodward, Thomas Harrelson, Jcf
