Recluse Idea To
At Inn Smoker
The idea of a clubhouse for the
University faculty which has been
considered from time to time during
the past 10 years will be reopened
at. a faculty smoker tomorrow night
at 9 o'clock in the Carolina inn.
At the meeting, proposed by the ad
ministration, faculty members will
consider possibilities of using the Ar
cher house for the proposed club. The
House, owned by the University, is at
present a women's lodging place.
Dean of Administration R. B.
House, who was in bed with a" slight
illness yesterday, said no complete
plans have been made for the house,
but that plans probably would be dis
cussed tomorrow night.
A faculty committee has been con
sidering the proposal for some time.
Members of the committee could not
be reached late last night.
Dr. W. A. Olsen, who will preside
at tomorrow night's smoker, said he
believed there was a feeling that
something should be done about some
sort of recreation center for the

ago there was some sort of building
reserved for the faculty, but he did
not believe.it had been satisfactory.
He thought there was a definite
possibility that the faculty would ac

set up a committee to arrange the

SENDS NEW LETTER
Miss Murray Asks
In the midst of discussions on lib
eralism and higher Negro education
which have attracted attention on the
campus for the past week, comes a
letter to the Daily Tar Heel from
Miss Pauli Murray, Negro applicant
to the University graduate school.
Protesting "Southern . prejudice,"
Miss Murray in her rhetorical com
position supplementary to the list of
questions she submitted recently, be
gins by explaining that she has "never
been able to understand your defini
tion of social equality."
She goes on to enumerate the inti
macies which most Southerners have,
especially, with their Negro nurses.
"Yet," she objects, "if that same
colored nurse decides that she too is
a human being and desires to study
under the same group of professors
and with the same equipment as you,
you go into tantrums organize 'lynch
ing parties, and raise the old cry of

ON BOXING BEING
SOUGHT IN POLL
.. Circulation of
By WILLIAM L. BEERMAN
Over 1,000 questionaires, asking
student opinion on intercollegiate box
ing, have been distributed over the
campus by coaches Mike Ronman and
Wally Dunham in an effort to es
tablish a statistical report for the en
lightment of the student legislature
when it next convenes. Physical edu
cation, boxers and other friends of the
sport have volunteered their services
and are conducting personal research
with the printed forms.
A bill to abolish boxing was tabled
last week for "investigation," and a
committee, headed by Basketballer
Fish Worley, appointed for a perusal
of the situation.
A study, it is alleged, is now being
made by the infirmary in order to
present a report on the injuries sus
tained in intercollegiate boxing, par
ticularly at the University.
"IN ALL FAIRNESS
Yesterday, an authority who asked
to have his name withheld, stated: "In
all fairness, it seems to me that if a
report is going to be made about in
juries in athletics, it should single out
boxing alone, but should include the
extent and types of injuries sustained
in all other sports. Boxing has been
proven by available records to be less
harmful than many other forms of
Knowing that general student
opinion is in favor of the continuance
of boxing as an intercollegiate sport
at the University, Boxing Coach Mike
Ronman and his assistant Wally Dun
ham drew up mimeographed question
aires, asking "Do you believe boxing
should continue as an intercollegiate
sport? Yes or No."

ready been filled out and returned. A
