Class Fees Cut
In All Proposals
Proposed budgets for the
sophomore, junior, and senior
classes will be voted on by class
members from 9 until 5 o'clock
Polls in the YMCA and Gra
ham Memorial will be conducted
by class officers and representa
tives of the Student Council ad
visory board on class budgets.
Members of the Interfrater
nity, Interdormitory, and Inter
town Councils will also distribute bud
gets to be considered.
This year's proposed budgets were
planned with the Council advisory
board. These groups have planned the
budgets with the purpose of "reduc
ing class fees wherever possible."
The senior budget makes its larg
est allowance for Yackety-Yack pic
tures and enough has been allotted to
cover an individual picture of every
man in the class. The, budget has also
allowed for a fifteen percent drop in
revenue this quarter and next quarter
because of students dropping out of
school or bad debts. Each senior
thereby saves $1.25 a year in class
The junior budget also gives its
largest expense item to the Yackety
Yack but by other economies will save
juniors $3-50 in class fees.
Sophomores have anticipated a 10
percent drop in class fees this quar
ter and 25 percent during the winter
quarter but have still cut the pro
posed budget enough to save mem
bers $.70 over last year's class fees.
Officers of all three classes have
urged all students to vote today so
that class officers will have definite
appropriations to work with.

students at this University. They are

conducting the survey in 50 colleges,
managing news releases of the poll
results and carrying on a general cam

The survey was the idea of the
editors of the Saturday Review. They
approached William Gaskill of the
American Institute of Public Opinion
with the proposal. Gaskill had a letter
on his desk from a Carolina student
who had previously taken part in con
ducting the Gallup poll and was seek
ing to reestablish the national Gallup
poll at Carolina. Three days later the
student, Walter Klein, was in New
York to put the idea down on paper
with the publishers and to start the
survey moving. The editors described
the idea and its possibilities, and a
week later the first questionnaire was
in the mails with a student organiza
