Phi To Be Revived At Mass Meeting In Gerrard Hall Tonight
17 "T7 1 TTV1 . .
ar !-neei rni committee
To Submit Constitution
Historic Society, Organized in 1795,
Will Again Function as Student Forum
A mass meeting for all interested persons will be held tonight at 8 :30 in
Gerrard Hall to re-organize the historic Philanthropic Assembly, the oldest
student activity on the campus. Jack Lackey, head of the special Tar Heel
Phi committee, announced that the full matter of re-organization will be
decided by vote at the mass meeting. -
The committee will submit a con-
stitution to be accepted or amended,
and a temporary membership commit
tee will be elected to pass on the qual
ifications of all who wish to become
charter members. Other committees
will be elected to perform such func
tions as preparing the Phi Hall on
the fourth floor of New East, nomi
nating officers and arranging for the
first regular meeting.
The membership committee will in
terview all applicants this week and
choose the charter members. - All
members chosen will have a vote at
the first regular meeting held in the
Phi Hall November 20, when perman
ent officers will be elected according
to the constitution adopted at the
mass meeting. After the permanent
officers are elected, the Phi will be
declared officially organized and will
begin functioning as a campus delib?
erative assembly to deal with matters
of concern to the students.
As .regulations now stand, any stu
dent may join the Phi. At one time
membership was restricted to those
who lived in the eastern part of the
state, but this rule is no longer In ef
fect. Membership in the Dialectic Sen
ate," the Phi's sister society, will not
prohibit membership in the Phi, as
was once the case.
! The re-organization of the Phi has
been approved by Chancellor R. B.
House, who says the administration
is very happy that the historic society
will again serve the University.
: The Phi, in addition to its impres
sive hall, together with the Di owns
the best portrait collection in North
Carolina. These portraits have been
accumulated by the Phi and Di for
more than a century, and now are
valued at over a hundred thousand
The Phi and Di were organized in
1795, the same year the University
opened its doors to students. Since
that time the two societies have spon
sored every kind of student activity.
For many years membership in one
of the two societies was required by
the University, and the societies exer
eised all the duties and powers of
student government. The societies
sponsored the first student publica
tion, the first forensic activities, the
first dances, the first library for stu
dents, and for over a hundred years
were the central organization which
regulated alTstudent activities.
Over half the governors of the
state have been members of the so
cieties, and every major office in the
state and nation has been filled by a
Di or Phi alumnus.
A member of the Tar Heel commit
tee said, "We feel that the Phi can
re-capture some of its past responsi
bilities and power, and become a valu
able asset to the campus. With a
greatly increased student body, the
need for such an organization has be
come a necessity. We urge every stu
dent to attend the mass meeting and
pply for membership, for the Phi
promises to become a powerful force

-640 Vets Included
In New Enrollment
By Mary Hill Gaston
Registration figures for the November-December
term released by Chan
cellor R. B. House show a total of
3,040 students, an increase of. more
than 700 over the enrollment in the
term just ended.
Civilian enrollment alone this term
exceeds the total enrollment here last
session. Civilians number 2,591, and
the 449 Naw and Marine men on
campus bring the total to 3,040.
Opening of the November term
brought approximately 400 veterans
hark to the camnus. Veterans now
number 640, according to the figures.
Speculation in South Building is
that there is a very definite possibil
ity that enrollment here will go be
yond the pre-war peak by September,
1946. This peak came during the fall
quarter of 1940, five years ago, when
4,098 students were enrolled at Caro
lina. Wartime enrollment hit the bot
torn in the spring of 1944, when 754
civilian men and 747 women, a total
of 1,501, were registered.
This speculation hinges on the big
jump made in the number of regis
trants from September 3 to October
29, when registration for this term
began. Graduation on October 27
meant the loss of approximately 150
students, bringing the total enrollees
down to about 2,200. Over 800 new
students showed up for registration
this term to bring the total beyond
the 3,000 mark.
Figures for this term show a de
crease of 63 in the number of mili
tary men on campus.
The exodus of the Navy Pre-Flight
School last month left dormitory
space to more than take care of the
increase in the student body. Civilian
men are now housed in Battle, Vance,

Sadie Hawkins Day Success,
Campus Returns To Normal
Carolina students feel mighty pe
culiar walking around m shoes,
pressed pants, city slicker clothes. It
doesn't seem natural to the thousands
who turned out last Friday Dogpatch
style in the greatest upside-down sex
upheaval Carolina ever saw.
Girls showed more interest than
the boys in the aifair, with three so
rorities walking off with the after
noon prizes: ADPi, Chi O. and Pi
Phi. In ease you. never guessel, that
was Mr. Young of the Music Depart
ment as the Mayor, for which he was
awarded one (slightly dead) herring,

Art Department was Marryin' Sam,
for which he was awarded a bottle of
beer, which he really needed after the

their artistic talent, to Joe Woodruff
and Lindy Beshman for their pub
