was a grotesque figure suspended from the

The issue of the student newspaper that
caused so much trouble contained an article
that condemned the actions of Huey. The
president of the University immediately de-
clared that nothing should appear in the
columns ot the paper that was derogatory to
the Kingfish. The staff signed a petition
condemning the action of the University
authorities and were immediately suspend-
ed for "gross disrespect The staff of the
paper were not guilty of gross disrespect.
They had been deprived of the freedom of
the press, a right that is theirs.
Not satisfied with this interference he
turned his attention to the athletic division
of the university. This resulted in the re-
signation of "Biff" Jones, the capable coach.
Such acts though must be termed as a
lack of political sagacity and will result in
a quicker removal of the national post from

become a matter of grave international im-

At this season of the year it is fitting
that mention be made of the fact that it is
an opportune time for some change in the
life of the average college student. There
probably never lias been a time in your
lives that someone has not encouraged you
to make some worth while New Year's reso-
lution and not only make them but keep
them. Perhaps it is felt by now that al such
things are childish or high schoolish and are
no longer something for a college student to
be interested in. As a result we decide that
we can get by as easily this term as we did
last and we will really have a better time if
we don't study. Maybe that is true but in
all probability when the grade books come
m some of the grades will be fives. The
next term we carry less work. We are sim-
ply wasting our time and the money of
those who are sending us to school. When
we stop to think about it we realize how fu-
tile such a system is. If a little more time
were spent in the library, rather than uptown i
in all probability many of those flunks
would be avoided.
East Carolina Teachers College has al-
ways had as one of it's achievements for
students, that scholastic standard cannot be
maintained unless the students try to keep
their grades up. At the beginning of a new
quarter is a good time to begin with better
While the Roosevelt adminis-
tration is doing its best to boost
prices in general, the price of go-
ing to college in America is slid-
ing down the scale. Tuition
charges have dropped on an aver-
age of $62 in 125 colleges the U.
S. Office of Education shows.
� � � �
Specialists in the office show
that the economical student in
liberal arts colleges spends from
$540 to $G30 a year, with state
universities soaking up less of
the money than the private
schools. Medium cost is incurred
m denominational schools. The
most expensive man's college m
the country is the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, where
the minimum is $1,080.

East Carolina Teachers College.
Whole hearted participation in some ex-
tra curricula activity that you particularly
like will add variety to your college class
work. Our late President Wright advised
this to the student body and such a good
piece of advice can be handed on to the stu-
dents enrolled here now. He further said
that such participation would do much to
develop your personality.
We do not know7 why you chose to at-
tend East Carolina Teachers College but we
believe that you made no error in the selec-
tion of a new Alma Mater.
East Carolina Teachers College has cer-
tainly effected a drastic change in her chap-
el exercises this year. To begin with the
old five day a week assembly period that
was held in the middle of the morning has
been done away with and in its place there
was instituted a new. more enjoyable and
more interesting system. Assembly is held! hours of arguing about resolu-
only twice a week and at the end of the!tinn-s a a peace meeting, went to
morning classes. This served to do away
with the interruption that the old assembly
had created. The chapel programs were in-
teresting and students made for a better at-
There was quite a bit of comment on
what would happen if a student should cut.
One cut. two cuts or a comparatively small
number went apparently unnoticed in the
old system, but even then if a student over-
stepped their boundaries they were at least
called to the office and warned not to let it
happen again. Students have talked among
themselves as to what the administration
would do if they should cut now. The first
term there was little done. It was suggest-
ed that chapel cuts be handed over to the
Student Government Association and to let
them handle it the way that they saw best.
The Student Council did not act on this and
the question was given back to the adminis-
tration. Now, the students are no longer in
doubt as to what will happen if they cut
chapel once too often. And that often is a
small number too. Bulletin boards
all over the campus proclaim what will hap-
pen. On the front page of this week's Teco
Echo is found an article that concerns this
new drastic measure. Four cuts, unexcused,
mean a dismissal from school. We stop to
ask the question, as undoubtedly the admin-
istration asked themselves before this new
ruling was finally passed on, is this measure
justified? Is it right that such measures
should be taken? The administrative offices
must have felt that they are entirely justi-
fiable. That assembly attendance is of vital
importance to the student body.
We must admit that there is little rea-
son for unexcused absences, and certainly
not as many as four. A legitimate reason
will in all probability be granted as an ex-
cuse, but can these drastic measures be mod-
traditional ro:

Huey Long has created a lot of disturb-

state for that matter. The national joker
"Hooey" Long, by armed force secures con-
trol of the election and his forces generally
triumph. A football star from his favorite
university, Louisiana State, impressed him
so Huey made the player a state senator.
Not satisfied with that he believed that his
dictatorship extended to the college press.
Nothing was to appear in the columns of
the college paper that was anti-Long in
character. A courageous editor wrote an ar-
ticle that condemned Huey's acts. He re-
signed because of Huey's censorship and was
dismissed from school.
Louisiana State's president, James Mun-
roe Smith, is afraid that unless he caters to
every slight whim of Huey's that he will
lose his job. As a result Long's slightest
wish is a command to him. The dictator of
Lousiana will accomplish what he sets out
to do. The students resented the weakness
of their president and showed their resent-

There has not been as much crashing
parties this year as there was last. This
impolite custom seems to have prevailed on
East Carolina Teachers College campus for
the past few years. It is commendable that
a lot of it has been cut out.
The Campus Building is for everybody's
use, and the students enjoy going over there
every night to dance. On Saturday night is
even more enjoyable than week nights, for
then everybody usually dresses up a bit, the
music is good and there is a longer time to
dance. The only disadvantage offered here
is the fact that those students who are not
among the group who are entertaining or
are being entertained at the campus build-
ing really have no place of amusement. If
there was some other place where music
could be provided as well as a place to dance
then those classes could go there. As it is
there is no place for them to go.

His great work pioneering in
the field of teachers training be-
gat: when he came here. By
drawing the contrast between
beginnings that October day
nty-fivi years ago, and the
ege he left that April day in
1934. Dr. Graham gave some
idea of the greatness of the work
he did in building a great Class
A. Teachers College from a small
Teachers Training School. 'Bow
much is crowded into that quar-
ter of a century between 1999
md 1934! What hard work;
what failures; what dreams;
what frustrations! And yet glo-
rious fulfillment packed in that

of this college It is the opinion
of leading school men he said
that Dr. Wright knew more about
teacher training than any other
educational leader in this part of
the United States.
What his coming meant to the
civic life of the city, and to the
churches, not only his own but
that of every denomination and
what it meant to Eastern Caro-

that Dr. Wright did not live quite-

made that plain today in submit-

State College authorities are
ready to re-employ the entire
athletic staff for the 1935-36
school year.
Announcement was made last
night that new contracts await-
ed all members of the sports
staff who are employed on a
yearly basis. This covers all
sports teachers except Hunk An-
derson, head football coach, who
is in the first year of a three-
year contract.
Reese, Kosky Undecided
Coupled with Dean J. W. Har-
relson's announcement that new
contracts awaited all members of!
the sports staff, was information
that all coaches except Ander-
son's two principal assistants�
Frank Reese, varsity backfield
coach, and S. Kosky, varsity end
coach�had indicated immediate
acceptance of the contracts.
Colonel Harrelson, dean of ad-
administration of State, made no
mention of salaries involved. His
announcement that all the coach-
es would be offered a further
tenure of duty followed two days
of meetings during which the
college's athletic council and fa-
culty council gave the coaching
subject its annual consideration.
The athletic council met Wednes-
day, and the faculty council met
yesterday afternoon.
Veterans Will Stay
Those who have indicated they
will accept the new one-year con-
tracts�State engages all
on a one-year basis except the
head football coach�are: Dr. R.
R. Sermon, athletic director,
trainer, and coach of varsity
basketball and track; Charles G.
"Chick" Doak, veteran baseball
coach and dean of State's sports
staff: Dr. Robert S. Warren, head
coach of all freshman sports:
Peele Johnson, boxing coach, and
J. B. "Shorty" Lawrence, assist-
ant freshman coach.
In addition to the regular mem-
bers of the athletic staff. State
annually engages part-time
coaches who are doing graduate
work. Don Wilson and Bill 'Red'
Epsey filled these posts in foot-
ball last fall, but they will con-
clude their school work in June.
Announcement of the 1035 stu-
dent sides probably will not be
forthcoming until shortly before
opening of the football season.
Members of the faculty com-
mittee are Colonel Harrelson. Dr.

Louise Briley, one of the most
versatile basketball players ever
to attend East Carolina Teachers
College, has been elected captain
of the 1935 girls' basketball
In high school, Briley played
for four seasons on the girls'
varsity, and in her senior year
captained an undefeated cham-
pionship team. During the years
Briley played on the Greenville
high school team, her expert
guarding, passing and intercept-
ing was noted throughout East-
ern Carolina. Last year she
played consistently for E. C. T.
C, and was an important factor
in establishing the perfect record
of the team.
Coach Frank's squad will make
its official debut Friday night
when it takes on the Rocky
Mount Y. W. C. A. athletes. The
Y. W. C. A. girls present a for-
midable foe, and may be expect-
ed to offer close competition in
an effort to register a win over
the undefeated E. C. T. C. team.
Thus far five games have been
scheduled with Rocky Mount Y.
W. C. A Wingate College, and
Appalachian State Teachers Col-
lege. Other contests have been
discussed and it is possible that
Coach Frank's players may play
the highly tutored Lenoir Rhyne
team. Indications are that this
year the E. C. T. C. team will
tackle the keenest competition
possible and regardless of wheth-
er they lose games or not, it is
certain that each engagement
will be a real exhibition.

sented by gold, frankinscence and

was present.
Dr. G. R. Combs spoke to the
Y. W. C. A. Sunday, January 6,
using as his subject, "Capitaliz-
ing One's Disappointments
He stated that learning to pro-
fit by one's disappointments is
one of the most priceless posses-
sions one may attain. He gave
several illustrations from the life
of Paul showing how he received
a blessing through his sufferings
and discomforts. It is Dr. Comb's
opinion that now as in the time
of Paul, the greatest joys and
happiness come through disap-
pointment. Life, he said, would
be dull and monotousness if
there were no defeat; defeat
makes success sweeter.
He raised the question, "What
does one know who has never
sorrowed?" There is always a
way out, and each disappoint-
ment and sorrow leads to things
higher. The earlier one learns
this lesson, the richer, more
beautiful, and triumphant his
life will be.

Miss Neva Kinlaw of Ayden,

Springs, Sunday, December 23,
ministrations in our colleges.
"I propose, first he said, "that
the student body through their
constituent society be granted the
right of collective bargaining
with the trustees of their college.
All plans affecting the welfare of
students, the endowments for
scholarships and housing condi-
tions, the expansion or contrac-
tion of college services, should
come before this body.
"I propose, second, that
through a student commission on
the course of study, undergrad-
uates should have the right of
free expression of opinion in all
requirements for degrees, as to
hours of study, number of
courses, standards of work. They
should have the right not only of
criticizing poor teaching but of
seeking redress when such teach-
ing interferes with their profit-
able use of time and money
Regarding student suspensions
and expulsions he said: "Too of-
ten in America teachers who
ought to be dismissed for negli-
gence in their own specialties
take compensation in arbitrary
disciplining of a student
The present system of college
administration, he declared,
which denies to student govern-
ment all authority except over
the most trivial aspects of stu-
dent life, is a "training in petty
The New America, he held,
which is likely to be governed
far more than formerly "by bu-
reaus of government officials re-
cruited from the ranks of college
graduates needs the laboratory
of student self-government.
Dr. Robert L. Kelly, secretary
of the Association of American
Colleges, asked for similar stu-
dent-faculty-administration coop-
eration especially in matters in-
volving academic freedom. In
reference to student government
he said: "On behalf of the most
alert colleges of the country that
there is no student interest which
is rightly outside the province of
student government. In numer-
ous colleges students are partici-
pating cooperatively in the edu-
cational program, in committees
on building and grounds, and in
many other ways are attempting
to work out a general standard
of civilized life on the campus
His association, he said, favor-
ed also setting up in Washington
a permanent commission on
youth problems.
Mr. Edward A. Filene, promi-
nent Boston merchant, urged a
program of inclusive social plan-
ning as the only method to meet
the demands of the present eco-
nomic situation and the only me-
thod by which liberty could be
attained. "The superstitious
supposed he said, "that there
was as much wealth, at least in
America, after the Wall Street
crash as there was before, even
if there was not as much money
"There were in fact as many
things, but, because the people
who wanted those things couldn't
get them, those things had really
ceased to be wealth and even
those who possessed the things
were poor, not rich.
"But when the New Deal pro-
posed to correct this situation by
simple means of increasing the
buying power of the masses, all
the superstitions concerning mon-
ey and wealth bristled in revolt.
"People thought that money
was something to accumulate,
not to pay out; although if it
were not paid out, it most as-
suredly could not come in
Progress of plans for a Feder-
al Youth Service to aid in the
solution of the problems of 7
000,000 jobless young people be-
tween the ages of 16 and 25 was
described by Dr. Frederick J.
Kelly of the United States Office
of Education. This Service, ori-
ginally outlined to the Depart-
ment of the Interior by NSFA
President John A. Lang, has ac-
cording to Dr. Kelly, received
the support of officials in the
office of Education. He explain-
ed that "the recommended bud-
get provides for the employment
of sixteen specialists in guidance,
adjustment, education, leisure-
time and community organiza-
tion. They would establish a
central clearing house of infor-
mation on youth needs and pro-
grams and show communities
how to develop services in which
each youth-serving agency would
play its part with greatest effec-
tiveness and least interference
With a prophesy of gradual
arid steady recovery Henry I.
Harriman, president of the United
States Chamber of Commerce,
sounded the most optimistic note
of the Congress.
"Stressing economic security of
the individual as basic in any re-
covery program, he suggested a
seven point plan, including home
ownership, gradual steps toward
unemployment and disability in-
surance, legal safeguarding of
investments, revision of the NRA
and AAA toward a greater self-
government of business, coordi-
nation of all forms of transporta-
tion, and the readministering of
relief to become a stepping stone
to jobs
Dr. William Trufant Foster, di-
rector of the PoHak Foundation
for Economic Research stressed
the importance of student opin-
ion as represented by the Fed-
eration and urged an expanded
program. Student interest in
public affairs should be followed
by definite stands on public is-
sues, he said, an dthe liberal ten-
dency of such stands as have
been taken by the Federation
are most encouraging.
