program for the development of our

university students now and for the
increase of several years to come.
2. Increased research and class
room facilities to be obtained only
by a liberal building program of de
partmental buildings. V
3. Remodeling and modernizing of
our antique structures.
4. Co-operation with the Univer
sity by the student body in keepine
the campus and dormitories clean.
5. Co-operation with the Univer
sity in keeping the campus unlined
by unnecessary paths. - f
6. Co-operation with the Univer

responsible, .and earnest. citizens . of
this state the : present ' needs of " the

7. A better acquaintance with the
great body of tradition on which our
University life is founded.
8. A whole-hearted and sincere
support of our honor system and all
that it stands for.
9. An increased observance of the
fundamental rules of hygiene and the
general caretaking of our bodies.
10. - Recognizing " the continual
sense of responsibility that should
rest with every University man; the
knowledge that the University is rep

11. An observance of the more
fastidious rules of conduct in our
daily relations with , each; other; a
complete resignation of former slight
breaches of etiquette in the mess hall
or at public gatherings. For by these
things is a University man judged
by the lay observed.

are not boastine. for we realize that
the epidemic is still raging all around
us. We do desire, however, to keep
it off our campus as much as pos
sible. The best way, we are told, to
keep the "flu" away is to keep m
as eood healtn as possmie ana to
Icpat awav from those who have it.
The last point is the one that should
be esneeiallv stresse dat present. The
men realize the value of keeping in
good health but some are careless
about exposing themselves.
The University authorities are do
ing all they possibly can to keep from
placing a quarantine on the campus.
Here, as alwavs. they are trying to
avoid using compulsion. They have
stressed the necessity of remaining
on the Hill over the week-ends in
stead of riding home on a "packed
train on which 'are possibly several
jases of influenza. '
The man who wilfully exposes him
self and then comes back to the Hill
and endangers his friends is doing an
injustice both to himself and to his
friends. No man, if he knows it,
will do such a thing, and few go
home on week-ends, now that they
have been asked to stay on the Hill.
The men who have not regarded
bhe situation seriously should look at
it and see what it means when they
go out into the state where there are
thousands of cases of influenza.

MORE ABOUT THE CAROLINA
Much has been said of late about
the Carolina spirit, or, sometimes
the lack of that spirit. Recent thefts
in students' rooms and other simv
lar incidents have led some to be;
lieve that there is not as much Car
olina spirit on the campus as there
should be. It is not in regard to such
dishonesty alone that we are to judge
the extent to which the Carolina spir
it pervades this campus. There are
many little acts and incidents in
which we can see the Carolina spirit
reflected. There are many little, un
guarded acts in the every-day life of
students that show whether they pos
sess that noble spirit. The fellow
who wil lay his heavy overcoat on
another's new hat and crush it at the
library or dining-hall entrance does
not have that spirit. The man who
will sit down in the library and lean
his chair up against the wall and
scratch off the paint sadly lacks the
Carolina spirit.1 These are but a few
of the little actions by which the lack
of Carolina spirit is evidenced. If
we give more attention to these little
things, as well as the big, there will
be more of the real Carolina spirit
on the campus.

Di Society Favors Government
Provision for all 5ur
Last Saturday night, by an over
whelming vote, a resolution that the
Di Society should go " on record as
favoring a definite policy on the part
of the government of providing em
ployment for surplus labor was de
feated. ' The usual open forum dis
cussion , was held and a large num
ber of men participated.
Those favoring such a policy ar
gued that it is the duty of the gov
ernment to provide employment for
surplus labor. There is a great deal
of work which should be done but
which is not being done. Working
conditions would be improved. A
great many men, like the coal miners,
are employed only for a portion of
their time. The proposed policy
would insure regular and year-around
work. A uniform distribution of la
bor would be insured.
The arguments of the opposition

centered around the point that it is
not a function of the government to
create work for labor. The govern
ment rshould not infringe upon the
field of private enterprise. There
would be a loss of initiative on the
part , of the, individual workman.
He would wait for the government to
give him a job arid would probably
be faithless in his duties for he would
know that under such a system the
government would have to keep Jiim
at work all the time.
The middle ground of opinion was
that the government, instead of ac
tually employing all surplus labor,
should throgh its various employ
ment bureaus and other" agencies, find
work for men who are unemployed
and place them in these positions.
A motion was passed that a com
mittee should be . appointed to thor
oughly investigate housing conditions
on the campus and out in town and
to draw up and present to the so
ciety a set of resolutions concerning
the same. Then the resolutions are
to be printed in all the state papers,
with a view of showing the people
of the state the urgent need for more
dormitories on the campus. It was
believed that this is the best way to
acquaint the people with the condi
tions as they actually exist.
