Herbert Gray of England, Gov ernor Sweet of Colorado, and Kirby Page, editor of the "World Tomorrow" are only a few who have made requests for copies of the Tar Heel. Dr. Herbert Gray, noted for his work with Ramsay McDon aid, has visited probably all of the larger universities and col leges in this 'country. After seeing a copy of the Daily Tar Heel, Dr. Gray stated that of all the college papers he had seen he had never seen one with such mature thought and sound reasoning as the Tar Heel. Another reauest" came for a copy from ex-Governor Sweet, nf Colorado. When here, Gov ernor Sweet was highly impress ed with the fine calibre of the Tar Heel, and before making one of his talks, he stopped long enough to comment on the paper itself. He spoke very highly of the work of the -paper.

Anybody who has already reg istered and was qualified to vote at the last election is not re quired to register again. In some communities, in the state a new registration has been de creed, as allowed by law, but this is not true of Chapel Hill. The primary contest of chief interest is that between F. M. Simmons and J. W. Bailey for the Democratic nomination for United States senator. Sim mons has been a senator for about thirty years and until re cently he was undisputed - boss of the Democratic organization in North Carolina. His hold up on the organization was weak ened by his bolting the ticket when Smith was nominated in 1928, and it is now said that most of the organization lead ers, great and small, are support- Chapel Hillian Signs Contract For Ferdinand Foch's Memoirs Cable despatches from Paris bring the news that Ralph H. Graves, native of Chapel Hill and alumnus of the University, has - obtained . the American rights for; the publication of the memoirs of the late Marshal Ferdinand Foch, generalissimo of the Allied armies in the World War. Representing Doubleday, Doran & Co., he sign ed the contract with Mme. Foch, widow of the marshal, last week in Paris. The memoirs,- about 150,000 words in length, will be publish ed serially in several newspa pers before appearing in book form. Mr. Graves went to Europe several weeks ago. His friends, in Chapel Hill and elsewhere, understood that he had been sent there by Doubleday, Doran on some important mission, but they did not know what it was until they read the cable des patches about the Foch memoirs. "The late marshal's design in writing his memoirs," says the New York Times, "was to make a book which would be interest ing for the general reader and which wouldTiot be just a tech nical handbook or as dry recital of events. His style as in all his military orders, is clear, terse and brief. On the reader the impression left is pne of per fect clarity and truth. "The , book is written dispas sionately it -was done before other publications gave rise to the posthumous - Clemenceau Foch controversy and is full of flashes of humor and anecdotes about all the leading figures of the war, such as King George, Earl Kitchener, Sir John French, who later became Earl of Ypres, Lord Roberts, Lord Milner, General Bliss, David Lloyd GeorgeColonel House. General Plumer, Marshal Petain, Gen eral Mangin, Marshal Joff re, General Pershing and General Sir Douglas Haig, later Earl Haig.! As much attention: is giveir to the r operations iof the American and British' armies' as to the French'and -Marshal Foch is generous" and just" to his col ing Bailey. Bailey was internal revenue: commissioner for this district under Woodrow Wilson, and he ran against A. W. Mc Lean as an antikrganization candidate for governor in 1924. He put up a creditable struggle in that contest but was defeat ed. Since then he has devoted himself to the practice of law in Raleigh. He took an active part in the 1928 presidential cam paign in support of both the na tional and state Democratic tick ets. ' : The contest of most local in terest here is the one between John W. Umstead of Chapel Hill and J. Clyde Ray of Hillsboro for the Democratic nomination for the state senate. Mr; Um stead is well known and popular here, and thercis no doubt that Chapel Hill will give him a rous ing majority. L. J. Phipps and Sam Gattis, rJr., are running for the state house of representatives, S. W. Andrews for register of deeds, W. T. Sloan for sheriff, A. W. Kenion for clerk of the court, and pr. S. A. Nathan for eor-oner. leagues and to the men who fought under his command. "The Marshal's manner of writing was curious. The me moirs wem;:almost . .... entirely written in his own hand. Such parts as were retyped were care fully corrected and interlined. When a correction or addition was long the Marshal marked the place for the insert and wrote On the back of each sheet. "The Marshal deals fully with all his controversies with Gen eral JPershing, Marshal Haig and Georges Clemenceau and it will be found that his own ac count differs in some cases from those which have already been given to the public in each case he explains his- decisions and tells why he stuck to his own view or yielded to the oppo sing arguments. "The book will be illustrated with facsimile letters and orders not hitherto published on some of the crises of the war and the rivalries of the leaders. Marshal Foch's meeting with General Pershing, their varying opinions and plans, their compromise and conclusions and on the whole their united efforts are the sub ject of many pages. ' "Colonel Bentley Mott, v Mili tary Attache of the American Embassy here, whose life of the late Ambassador Herrick was published recently, has consent ed to translate the memoirs. During 1918 he was a liaison aide to Marshal Foch" Alumni Plan Banquets Four of the 11 alumni classes convening here at commence ment have decided upon a place for their reunion dinners, all of which are to be held at 6 o'clock on the evening of June 9. , At the Carolina Inn will be the classes of '98, with R. fa.

F. Hickerson's gate one day last week, walked up the . path, and knocked at the door. Mr. Hick erson, responding to the knock, saw that the man held in his hands an object made of iron. "I have brought this to you for a gift," said the stranger. He was A. Germino, an Ital ian craftsman who lives in Dur ham. "I came over here and saw your Gimghoul castle," he ex plained., "It reminded me of buildings in my own land, Italy, and I want to give you this for your big door." The object was a" cleverly fashioned wrought-iron fixture constituting a frame for a lock. The Gimghouls had been want ing just such a thing for a long time, and it was gratefully ac cepted by Mr. Hickerson. Mr. Germino came to this country thirty-five years ago and has been living in Durham about three years. He is inter ested in art and literature as well as in his craft. One of his sons is named Romeo and the other Dante. GRADY LEONARD RESKFRQMY Self -Help Secretary Goes to Greensboro; Has Secured Jobs .. For Hundreds of Students. Grady H.
