We are glad to state that the General Assembly has appropri ated ten thousand dollars annual- fly for two years to be spent in repairing the University build ings and in providing suitable sanitary conveniences. This is a work that should have been done long ago. The University is State property and it is false economy to let the property go down for lack of repairs. The old East Building is one hundred years old. The roof on the South, the old East and the old West are over sixty years old. Sanitary arrangements . are needed, as badly as repairs. An infirmary for the care of the sick is indispensable where 320 men pre congregated together. The appropriation will be de voted to these purposes; renovat ing the old East and . old West in a manner similar to the renova tion of the South, putting on new tin roof, putting comfortable seats in the recitation rooms, enlarging the . capacity of the library by erecting a gallery and putting in in more shelves, completing the water-supply, putting in baths, closets, etc. , in the basement un der ther library,' and building an infirmary. Gentlemen of the Legislature, we thank you most heartily for this substantial recognition of the merits and needs of the Univer sity. As students of the Uni ver sity, loving the State and feeling an ambition to serve the State in whatever capacity we may be able, we shall show ourselves worthy of your confidence and shall endeavor to repay the State hereafter for helping us to , com plete our education. it THE FEBRUARY DANCE. It is Lent. The society belle has gone into winter quarters and sombre gown; goes to early mass and afternoon service daily; is served with boiled bass instead of a; fillet de boenf and an oyster pate instead of a broiled quail She eats no outter and persuades her better fellow-to give, up his cigarette. But on Sundays on Sundays she dines as she pleases; her gray gown is becoming; so she doesn't change this, but she changes her diet and keeps her dainty little mouth full of cara mels which she has saved for the occasion. , But she doesn't dance. Oh, no ! Dancing-nights . a 11 d Fast-days don't come within the same solar day and the University German Club had this ' in mind when tjiey mdved up the Wash ington's Birthday dance to suit the church calendar. That dayit was the 7 th the noon train brought several of the angels from the west, and the night train another heavenly choir from the capital and our sister city, Durham. When the band began with the opening strains of the "Dude's March" the array of feminine grace and loveliness was enough to satisfy the most opti mistic dreamer, and those who had predicted a "german of 3 couples" were silenced, forever. From 10 o'clock until the wee small hours, youth and chivalry vied with grace and beauty, and the mazy figures of the german, under the skillful leadership of Mr. W. B. Snow, changed like the colors of some huge kalaide scopej and with the ease and tact of a Beau Brummel he lead the Golden Pageant through memer ious windings and fanciful turns. Of. with a surpassing faultlessness. After the . lingering, throbbing strains of "Home, Sweet Home" had died away, the entire company repaired to the University Inn where an elegant supper was served. ., , . The Tar .
