EDITORIALS NEWS Coed Senate Recommends Student Daily In March Vet Housing Situation Hunt Answers Clark Serving1 Civilian and Military Students at UNG VOLUME LIII SW CHAPEL HILL, N. C., SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1945 NUMBER SW 104 9 I Comer Poses Vet Housing Difficulties Partial Solution Hoped For Shortly "The University housing commit tee is working day and night in an attempt to secure adequate house keeping units for married veteran students," Harry Comer, YMCA sec retary, announced late Thursday. At present several plans are being considered for temporary and perma nent housing. It is hoped that a defi nite decision can be given early next week for partial solution of this prob lem. "However, under present cir cumstances, with lack of materials, no definite promise of housekeeping unit construction can be made, even after building may have been started," Mr. Comer stated. Survey Made According to a survey completed December 6, 235 housekeeping, units will be needed by February. At the present time, 36 couples without children and 31 couples with children need homes. In January, 121 married veterans are expected to register for the first time.. At the beginning of the law school term in February 13 more veterans will register. There are now 650 veterans on the campus, 450 more are expected in January, and a minimum of 500 in March. By next fall it is expected! that the majority of students will be veterans. Fifty per cent of the pres ent freshman class is over 25 years old. Most of these students are vet erans. The housing committee emphasized that living quarters in Whitehead dormitory and in the old infirmary are merely temporary. Fourteen mar ried , couples with children are quar tered in the infirmary building and 40 couples without children are in Whitehead dormitory. All xrt - - these people need new quarters because, of the lack of cooking and other facili ties in their present domiciles.

"We, as Carolina students, have pledged ourselves to uphold our standard of honor; we must real ize the responsibilities we have as sumed under the Campus Code. Un less we do this, the privileges we now enjoy under our present sys tem of government may be taken away."

Speaker- Lib Schofield opened the discussion with a brief summary of the problem and then threw the floor open to the Senate for discussion. Fuller Orientation - The Honor Code and the Campus Code were brought up first, and it was the unanimous opinion of the Senate that both codes should be much more fully explained during the ori entation of new coeds. Since these codes are the basis of all rules, the senators felt coeds should be thor oughly familiar with what they are saying when they sign them in cere monies conducted by Honor Council members. Recommendations from the coed legislative body to the House. Privi leges Board were: for more frequent inspections of fraternity houses, to be made at any time and with no ad vance notice whatsoever; for wider publication of house rules now in ef fect, to be made in both women's dor mitories arid in the houses themselves, so that students may learn the rules they are responsible for. ! Imports Affected v.Tb the Interfraternity Council the Senate recommended that some change concerning visiting privileges of imports be made. Some members of the Senate expressed the opinion that fraternity houses should .have the same closing hours for all girls as are in effect for coeds. -The-rSen&tewaa unanimous m its recommendations to the; Women's In terdormitory Council that frequent room checks be made after closing hours There was some discussion along the lines that such inspections would seem contrary to the Honor Code and unnecessary because of this code. But it was agreed that a minority of coeds have, taken advantage of the code and have slipped in or out of the dormi tory after closing time. Serious pen alties for coeds coming in obviously under the influence of alcohol were also recommended by the Senate Other Discussions Other discussions on the subject of See COED SENATE, page U.

So colorfully was she dressed that the student did not notice the tickets she held in her hand. She wore a lace shawl, a silk skirt, with fed, purple and green sequins, and a red and green blouse. "Could you study if you were hungry?" "Well I haven't been real hun gry," was the answer. "Then you can't expect students of 18 war-ravaged countries to study and become leaders of a peaceful world," the Greek student smiled. "No I couldn't," he admitted, "but how can I help?" "You can contribute to the World Student Service Fund by taking one of these tickets. You buy your lunch as usual. The cashier will double the price of your meal. Without knowing it, you have helped the foreign stu dent eat for two days!" "Ill be glad to help," the Carolina student offered, reaching for the ticket.

Parachutes that might have been red or blue were it not for the darkness spiraled toward the ground. Supplies for the French underground dropped to the waiting agents below as the plane turned back toward Algiers. This was the work of the OSS, Of fice of Strategic Services, of which Dr. W. Lee Wiley, of the University of North Carolina Romance Language faculty, was a. member." " Long classed as top secret, in stances of the work of the OSS can now be partly told.

It was a jod tnat tnugs mignt wen nave been delegated to do. However, for such underground work, the moral in tegrity of a gentleman was necessary.

House states there is no foundation to the rumor that school will close early due to the large number of flu cases among students, and exams will not be moved up. Thursday there were 82 patients . in the infirmary, according to Dr. E. McG. Hedgpeth, and the great majority of these were ill with flu. Dr. Hedgpeth said there are still beds in the infirmary to care for new patients, despite a rumor to the contrary. Should the number increase beyond the capacity of the infirmary, which is unlikely, other centers of treatment will be made available. The number of flu cases began increasing about two weeks, .ago, and all physical education classes were discontinued Tuesday for the rest of the term.

Earlier in the year the board started work on returning the Tar Heel to a daily. Initial investigation produced the possibility that the Tar Heel could go daily at the first of the year, but no definite decision was reached by the board. No, budget proposals on the daily were presented until last Monday at which time the board sum med up the case with a decision for a later date. Needs Guarantee The main reason for delay in pub lication was the Orange Printshop's contract proposals which called for a two year contract on a daily basis. Mr. William Pugh, manager of Or ange Printshop, told the board that fe 7uld e t0, h ome f?a"n tee for additional printers which he W0Uld have to hire for the daily pa per. He said that it was almost an impossibility to hire a man without at least a 12 months guarantee of per manent work. Mr. Pugh also told the board that he thought the present staff of the Tar Heel needed to be better Organ ized before it could attempt publica tion of a daily paper. Bob Morrison, editor of the Tar Heel, presented a budget for the pro posed daily as of the first of the year.

Akers Announces Admittance Rule Dean Susan Gray Akers announced today that new students will be ad mitted to the School of Library Sci ence of the University in the Spring as well as the Summer and Fall quar ters. This is a departure from the usual custom as new students for the one year program of this school are or dinarily admitted only in the Fall and Summer quarters. . The new ruling was made primarily for the benefit of recently discharged servicemen and also those expecting discharges soon. These men have asked to be admitted as soon as pos sible rather than waiting until the summer or fall quarter.
