New Candidate Was Requested To Enter Race Bill Pearson late last night an nounced his independent candidacy for presidency of the student body, thus ending the possibility that Jim Davis, nominated by, both the Stu dent and University parties, would ride to the campus' highest position unopposed. Leaders of campus political fac tions could not be reached last night for comment concerning Pearson's entrance into the race, due to the late hotar the announcement was made. Pearson issued the following (Continued on page two) s FRINK SUGGESTS NAUTICAL SCHOOL BE ESTABLISHED Salary Proposals Cut Professor's, Raise Lawmaker's By LOUISE JORDAN Plans for the establishment of a fourth unit of the Greater University of North Carolina have been inaugu rated by a group of sponsors into a plea for the founding of a State nau tical school. The proposition, incor porated in a bill introduced by Sena tor S. Bunn Frink of coastal Bruns wick county, was to have been put before the Senate Education commit tee at a hearing yesterday morning. Hope for aid from the Federal gov ernment in setting up and 'maintain ing the school is behind the plan, and North Carolina's Robert. R., Reynolds has proposed a measure to the United States senate which would make this possible. His bill, an amendment to the Marine School act of 1911, would pro vide an annual Federal appropriation of $10,000,000 to be used in matching j State appropriations for nautical schools. . The Frink bill calls for $50,000 from! the State; therefore, North Carolina's nautical college would be founded with . f , . AAA an initial expenditure oi xuy,uuu. Also, if established, the school would receive Federal' aid in the form of a loan- i marine equipment f?- ' -- With the appropriations made avail able by the Reynolds bill, now in com mittee, it would be possible tor .any state to establish such an institution. The North Carolina sponsors seek to act early and establish a ischool whicn would be a model for other states to follow. Although four states now operate schools under the old Marine act, North Carolina's proposed school would offer a curriculum of much broader scope than is now provided in any public nautical school. Senator Frink says that since the first proposal of the plan there have been many expressions of support from the public. He predicted that within 25 years, North Carolina's nau tical school would have an enrollment equal to that of other branches of the University. Also from the legislature comes the report of action taken by the joint ap propriations committee, which on ! Tuesday lopped off without exception pay increments recommended by the Advisory Budget commission for in structors in the various State-supported colleges. The increases in appropriations for educational institutions necessitated by the decision not to raise tuition for resident students, amounted to ap proximately $468,000. Several days ago Representative Mallison introduced a bill to submit a constitutional amendment increasing the salary of legislators from $600 to $900 a term.
