The course is supposed to
start February 1, but the air-
port and other essentials can
not be ready by that time. There-
fore Dr. Meadows says that
probably the College will be able
to offer the course by the begin-
ning of the Spring quarter,
March 20. Nothing definite has
been decided as yet.
Three courses will be offered
here by faculty members. These
courses are navigation, meteor-
ology, and civil air regulations.
Actual flying instructions will
be given at the Greenville Air-
This course will be offered to
the college students. The age
limit will be from 19 to 26. Stu-
dents not enrolled in college
must have had two years col-
lege training, and those enroll-
ed here at school must be of
sophomore standing.
Primarily this course is of-
fered to boys but two per-cent
of the students may be girls.
Other colleges in the state
which boost such a course are
State College. Duke University,
University of North Carolina,
and E. M. I. Such a course is
regarded as important in the
national defense program and
brings opportunities of flying
much closer to those interested.

Physical Education Majors Taking A Chance
Any high school physical education major at East Carolina
Teachers College who expects to obtain a teaching certificate is
taking a chance. The practice of the Physical Education Depart-
ment in forcing high school majors to do practice teaching in the
grammar grades is a strict violation of the State Department of I Italian counter-attacks in the Tepeleni sector of the'Albanian
Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, meeting in extreme
secrecy during the same hour that President Roosevelt and the
United States embarked on another four year voyage to nobody
knows where, agreed upon war measures that will bring "the
blow of destruction against England in 1941" to crown the Axis
power's string of victories. It is reported that the blow will come
in the form of a blitzkrieg Spring offensive, ranging from the
Eastern Mediterranean to the British Isles, and that the Axis
blows will be speeded up before the United States can become the
"arsenal of democracy" and provide any great amount of aid to
German and Italian air forces have joined in an effort to
wipe out Malta and sever the Mediterranean at its narrow waist-
line. This besieged British fortress has already been subjected to
several spectacular mass air attacks for which Axis squadrons
have paid dearly with planes from their ranks.
Along with the hammer-blow bombings of Malta the Nazi
Luftwaffe has made its first bombing attack on Britains vital
Suez Canal region. This attack is regarded as the heralding of
an all out Axis offensive aimed at cutting the British empire "life-
line" to prevent reinforcements by way of the Suez Canal from
Australia and other empire points.

Education: and if the proper authorities learn of this practice,
that was in progress last quarter and continued this quarter, they
are going to clamp down on the school. Recently a graduate in
physical education remarked that his practice teaching had helped
him more than any other phase of his college training as far as
actual coaching goes. But this particular student� a high school
major�did his practice teaching at the high school. He was not
subjected to a group of youngsters who had the privilege of accept-
ing or rejecting the instruction of their tutor. He did not have to
handle a group of students whose age range was far below that
of the more mature students he was assigned to handle after being
graduated from college. The Physical Education Department of
East Carolina Teachers College�one of the ten leading teachers'
college in the United States�has attracted a number of students.
Because of its rank, they expected to find trairdng not to be had
in any other college. This is a splendid picture. But what are they
receiving"? No student wants to pay hard-earned money for train-
ing that stands a possibility of not being certified by the State
Departement. Last quarter echoes of the students objection to
this practice brought the promise that something would be done
about it this quarter. After the students registered, the high
school physical education majors were assigned practice teaching
among the kiddies. The superintendent or principal taking a lease
on the services of his prospective coach will do so with the assump-
tion that he has had the required number of hours of practice
teaching under a high school critic. Perhaps nothing will be done
about the current situation, as the prospective employers of the
high school majors are in another community. Thev won't be able
to determine the training he has had or hasn't had from office
records. Aside from being unfair to the student, the current prac-
tice is unfair to those they will teach. It is being unfair to the
State Department. It is a condition that will tend to retard in-
stead of advance the objectives of the department. Educational
authorities throughout the nation are placing emphasis on physi-
cal education. As the demand for better-trained instructors in-
creases, there is going to be a greater demand for physical educa-
tion graduates of this school. If the department does not cope with
the standards that it is supposed to meet, then it is logical to
assume that physical education at East Carolina Teachers College
is doomed. The cost of providing high school practice teaching for
high school majors is small as compared with expenses of other
departments. If the State knew this condition existed because of
insufficient funds and failed to do anything about it. then we
could blame the State. The State has not been told of this. Some-
day matters such as these come to the surface. If this one comes
to the surface, it will submerge the Physical Education Depart

front north of Kiisura the Greeks have also scored important
gains putting them in positions from which it will be easier to

The Eritrean towns of Tessenei and Sabderat, fortified Italian

New Constitution Now In Making
A new constitution committee, composed of some members of
last year's group, has begun the task of completing the new con-
stitution for the student body of East Carolina Teachers College.
About three vears ago the students realized the old order was
changing and would have to be reconditioned to cope with the
growth of the school. The committee has an important task, as
the needs of a college community continue to mount from ouarter
to quarter. It is not easy for any group to live under practices
and conditions in a world of tomorrow that were suited only to the
past. Since the student body deemed it necessary that a new con-
stitution be drawn up for consideration and possible adoption,
then the project should be carried out until it is completed. The
committee is composed of competent students, as such a group
needs vision and foresight. They've got to predict needs that
will exist tomorrow, as well as those that are prevalent today.
That s why the task before them is an important one. When their
task is completed, the final task will rest in the hands of the stu-
dents. It will be necessary to look upon the new constitution with
seriousness. You are living in a democratic college community.
A constitution tells you how you shall be governed. How you are
governed should be of major importance. The committee realizes
this. ou should realize it, too.

Unity Is Needed In The Teaching Profession
The General Assembly has met again. It has taken action
on a record-breaking budget. The salary of four State officials
was raised to the tune of $600. Various departments of State offi-
cialdom got their usual requests, but what did the teachers gef
When the State budget was pro-rated, the teachers' hopes rested
only in retirement. Considering this, their financial future isn't
too bright. Why are they subjected to a low salary scale when
their work is considered both valuable and neseccary by the legis-
lators themselves? There are several reasons. In many instances
the persons whom they name to wage their legislative campaigns
are not qualified for such a task, as it takes more than an easy-
going plea to get money from the State. When elections roll around
teachers stand in the background and say "the best man will win
anyway; my vote wouldn't do any good. Besides there's nothing
but unfairness in politics and I don't want to be a part of it"
They fail to affiliate themselves with an alumni association or
some other organization that would enable them to group thinking
and acting. The teaching profession ha?, got to use a little more
common sense in selecting "bread and butter" leaders. At election
time they ve got to decide what candidate will most likely aid
leir professional and financial cause. It is more logical to vote

by an insistent desire for controversy which leads quickly to that
publicity which is their dominating ambiton. If the activities and
outgivings of these individuals or groups can be directed against
a well-known personality, whether in public or in private life, or
against an institution of high repute, whether academic, religious,
industrial or financial, they are made happy in highest degree by
the publicity which so usually attends their performances. These
facts are coming to be pretty well recognized bv the American
people, and sooner or later the press will grow tired of giving to
these individuals and groups that publicity which means so much
to them.
Small minorities, as Dr. Butler seems to forget for a moment,
have their rights. Sometimes they turn out to be right in the end.
If they make trouble, that is sometimes part of their business and
duty. In a political, educational or any other kind of association
the majority vote isn't necessarily sacred or final. A minority
has its role.
The press is no mind-reader or heart-reader. It cannot im-
pute motives nor suppose that a member of the minority is more
eager for notoriety than a member of the majority. It cannot re-
port or omit opinions merely because it agrees or disagrees with
them, or thinks them sensible or foolish. As long as people say
such things and do such things as have to be reported for intruc-
tion or amusement, the press will keep on reporting them. It will
play no favorites. The responsible press will put nobody in or

growing. What will be the total
by Alumni Day. June 1941?
This actually happened. Believe
it, or make up one yourself, but
we did better than we had done
in two days! You know, atmos-
phere and tenseness. But soon
Willie came along and to the best
of his ability, which was very
confusing, announced that he
had to use our "stage" (and a
look that said we should be in . .
. . but you know the look). Next
we went up to the attic, I guess
you would call it. It was a very
small room way above the stage
where the pulleys are. Again we
popped back into character and
did better still. It is really odd
what a change like this did for
us. But of course this was too
good to be true, and the dust
from the stage began coming up
through the cracks and ran us
out again!
