The great abundance of froth

to publish a book concerning the

A spirited airing of North
Carolina's case for education
brought five thousand citizens
from every section of the state
to Raleigh's massive Memorial
auditorium yesterday afternoon.
Hundreds thronged the streets
of the capital enroute to the
mass meeting, coming from the
legislative chambers and hotels
from noon until 3:00 o'clock,
when the vast hall was packed
with an intense and serious
crowd of educators, students
and citizens, who sought judi
ciously to weigh what later was
described as the chief asset of
North Carolina education.
From the large crowd of
speakers it remained for Dr:
Frank P. Graham, president of
the University and Kemp Battle,
an alumnus, to set the educa
tional and political keynote of
the day. Their remarks and the
opinions of citizens speaking
from the floor were both unique
and momentous in the educa
tional annals of North Carolina.

The initiation of the religious

an action on the part of the Uni

periods on the days that regular
chapel exercises do not take
place. Accordingly, Dean F. F.
Bradshaw, of the committee,
asked the co-operation of the Y.
