MAGAZINE WILL BE PUT ON NEW BASIS Phi General Assembly Opposes Co-education By an overwhelming majority, the General Assembly of the Philanthro pic Society, last Saturday night, passed a resolution, "That the Phi lanthropic Assembly go on record as disfavoring co-education in any form except for graduates from other institutions, professional students, and resident girls." The vote on this resolution was 54 to 12 against, and immediately after this vote was taken a resolution was passed order ing the reading clerk to report the resolution and the vote to the presi dent and dean of the University. The resolution as first introduced for discussion dealt with the advis ahilitv of buildinff a eirl's 'dormitory at the University. Those sponsoring the resolution argued that the boys here did not have sufficient rooming accommodations, and that it would be unwise to build a girl's dormitory before several were constructed for the boys. It soon developed, how ever, that the dormitory discussion was just a minor consideration because the big issue was the attitude of the assembly toward co-education. Then the original resolution was changed to the form of the one given above. The majority of the speakers onnosed pn-pdneat.ion. Thev main tained that the State Normal was the proper place for a girl to get her education just as the University was the nrnner nlace for a man to get his. They further maintained that the University was not equipped to train women properly, and others recited the fact that the presence of women ' made the minds of many young men wander from their studies. The opposition defended the co eds on the ground that as this was a state institution they should come to the University. They pointed out the fact that the leading educational institutions in the country were co educational. They further contended that the presence of women on the college campus was not detrimental to men. They cited woman suffrage as one of the examples in which women's rights ar'e becoming recog nized. A motion was unanimously passed hj the society favoring the transfer J the society to the Graham Memorial Building when it is erected. A committee consisting of John Kerr, D- L. Grant, and R. C. Dorsette were apoointed to represent the society in staining quarters in the new build Tonight the election of officers serve for the next year takes Place. T. C. Taylor, the Editor-in-Chief of the next year's Magazine, an nounces that there will be a radical change in the make up of the Magazine beginning with the Septem ber issue. It is planned to publish it every month, and oftener if the finances permit. The make-up of the Magazine will be devoted to matters of general interest, patterned after the manner of the Literary Digest. It will contain a page correspond ing to Who's Who and Why in N. C, a scientific department. The Maga zine will be the same szie as the Blue Ridge, with the exception that it will contain a few more pages. The relation of the Magazine to the societies will be the same as in former years. The first number of the Magazine will . be the North Carolina Number. The editor-in-chief recently secured permission from the two societies to appoint additional associate editors to the Maeazine Board, who will not necessarily have to be members of the societies. It is known that there are many men of excellent writing ability on the campus that have not been on the board formerly because they were new members of the societies, but this barrier has been done away with and the board for next year will be composed of the best men that can be secured on the campus. MIKADO TO BE GIVEN FRIDAY NIGHT AT 830 GILBERT AND SULLIVAN'S FA MOUS COMIC OPERA; PRETEN TIONS PRODUCTION WILL BE IN MEMORIAL HALL One of De Wolf Hopper's Most Suc cessful Productions; Eleven Piece Orchestra to Play Di Society Elects Magazine Board At its regular meeting on last Saturday night, the Di Society elected T. C. Taylor as editor-in-chief of the University Magazine for next year with C. W. Phillips, C. T. Boyd, and W. L. Blythe as asso ciate editors. C. R. Summer, C. D. Beers, and C. T. Leonard were chosen associate editors of the Yackety Yack for 1920-21. A resolution that the Di Society should assemble itself as a legislative body in .regular formal meetings was defeated. Those fa voring the resolution urged that a change in system is needed in order to create more interest in literary society work. The open forum does not afford sufficient flexibility. Those opposed to the measure argued that nothing can be accomplished by werelv cbanp-intr the form of orcani- o zation. Messrs. Gwynn, Bobbitt, Phillips and Williams spoke on the question.

Musical Pro gram. Fridav nierht in Memorial Hall, at 8:30. the Mikado Event, under the auspices of the University of North Carolina Musical Club. Friday night at 8:30 in Memorial Hall the department of music will produce Gilbert and Sullivan's famous comic opera, "The Mikado." This will be the most pretentious produc tion, it is said, ever attenmted at the University. The cast consists of nine principals, a chorus of twenty men and twenty women and an orchestra of eleven pieces. The Mikado was first nroduced in 1885. and immediatelv attained a great popularity which has never diminished: manv of the ereat stars in musical comedy have used it as a vehicle, and in the last few years it has been revised bv American and English companies and played to crowded houses all over the world: even in Japan. The production by DeWolf Hopper was one of his most successful ventures: anH two of the biggest theatres in New York and Washington ran the Mikado lor several months' last season. Gilbert and Sullivan's operas are unique in their field; they have that mysterious something which catches the popular fancy, and at the same time are never cheap or unworthy. The music is of the most tuneful. catchy sort the kind of thing that one whistles on the camous: and the lines are teeming with the most clever wit and comeuy. Most of us are familiar with such soncs as "The Flowers That Bloom In the Spring," "Tit-Willow" and "Three JUttle Maids trom School." The production is to be elaborately staged and costumed; both acts take place out of doors, and a veritable forest is being put on the big Memorial Hall stage. With its splashes of oriental color, its lanterns and Japanese umbrellas, the scene will make us all forget the barren (Continued onipae two Students Contribute $7,000 More to Fundi A very successful canvas of the new women on the campus, reports $7,000 in actual pledges, there are still about ten country clubs to be heard from.

(Continued on page five) 'On to Blue Ridge" Is Far Reaching Cry Ten houses costine approximately $50,000 are at Dresent in nrocess of A construction on the newly developed property, as yet unnamed, but lying about halt a block trom Franklm Street just back of the homes of Dr Lawson and Colonel Pratt. There were twentv-two annlicants A C for homes so the Universitv is thus trying to meet the housing situation, which has been a serious one this year not only in Chapel Hill but throughout the state, it is understood. These ten houses were given to the present members of the faculty needing them most, and to the new faculty men who will come here next semester lor the hrst time. The funds for the new develon- ment are not part of the $500,000 bunding fund voted by the state legislature, but an endowment in vestment, and the sites and buildings when finished will cost in the neigh borhood of $50,000. Thev will be completed in plenty of time for occupancy betore the lykiu-zl semes ter. Two new streets will be ODened ud as anDroaches to this new development; one running between the homes oi Dr. Lawson and the old Herty place, the other beginning on Battle btreet between the Gra ham and Howell nronertv. When completed this new development will be two points, an arrangement wrncn has become very popular develop ments in many American cities. The new residents will probably name this property, , which promises to not only relieve the housing situation but to add materially to the expan sion and beauty of Chapel Hill.
