fShepard Responds to Queries
Concerning Veterans' Checks
Regional Office Makes Effort to Insure Checks
Arriving to All Students Before November 10
Responding to student queries concerning veterans' subsistence
checks for the month of October, Colonel F. C. Shepard, Veterans'
Adviser, estimated that 95 per cent of the veterans would re
ceive their checks between November 1 and 3. The remaining
students should get them by Novembei
10 at the latest.
"In spite of the release by the War
Department that checks will be de
layed, I believe that Carolina students
will receive theirs on time as the Re
gional Office at Winston-Salem has
exerted every effort to insure that
checks in this area will not be late,"
Similar to Army Payroll
He explained that the Winston
Salem office makes up a payroll, simi
lar to the army payroll, of all stu
dent education awards received be

Roy Armstrong Dreams of Days on Railroad
Giving 'Time and a Halt for Overtime Pay
By Jo Pugh
"Who would have thought that Roy
Armstrong's real name was Lee Roy
Wells Armstrong! The very fact that
he has kept this gives an insight , into
the character and personality of this
coffee drinking son of Spencer, N. C,
home of the famous train hospital.
Yes, it's just plain Roy no put on,
no sham, no mockery; but gobs and
gobs of overflowing merriment."
This sketch of Roy Armstrong, Uni
versity admissions officer, appeared
in the 1926 Yackety Yack. Above the
sketchy was pictured a blonde young
man of 22 years, a history major
whose extra curricula activities in
cluded sub assistant football, "13"
club, Dialectic Society, and secretary
treasurer of the Freshman class.
"'"Job More Important Now
Thousands of students have' inter
viewed him in the past year. His job
has taken on an increased importance
in the past few months as veterans
flock to Carolina.
In the last year, he says, he has
turned away over 10,000 applicants
to the University. Sometimes more
properly executed award applications
of Carolina students were delivered
to the Winston-Salem office on Octo
ber 9. Therefore, all students whose
award applications were correctly
filled out will receive checks on time.
A few students, mostly from out of
state, will probably not get sub
sistence checks until November 10 due
to the time necessary for the award
certificate to reach their regional of
fice and return.

Due to crowded conditions in

Hours for vaccination are from 9 a.

both days, with only one inoculation
The vaccine's 80 Co effectiveness in
preventing both flu and minor colds,
plus the responsibility of each student
toward preventing an epidemic of the
contagious disease have led Dr. E.
McG. Hedgpeth to urge as many stu
dents as possible to participate in the
program. "We have been able to ob
tain, enough of the influenza vaccine
to yaccinate approximately 80 of
the student body," the health service
head declared. He added that "statis
tics reveal that people who have had
the vaccine possess . increased resist
ance not only to influenza but also . . .
to ordinary colds and sore throats."
"The University Health Service
urges everyone to cooperate because
the effectiveness in controlling a pos
sible epidemic is directly proportion
ate to the number of people who are
vaccinated," said Dr. Hedgpeth. An
outbreak of influenza here following
the first world war caused the death
of UNC President Edward K. Gra
ham and others and the hospitaliza
tion of hundreds of students. Already
the U. S. Public Health Service has
predicted similar large-scale epidem
ics during either this coming or next
"A fairly large percentage of the
people who take the vaccine will get
some local reaction in the way of a
sore arm and a slight amount of red
ness at the site of the vaccination,"
Dr. Hedgpeth reported. He explained
that approximately one out of 200 who
are inoculated will run a slight fever
two or three days, but otherwise there
are no serious after-effect following
wartime standardization of dosage.
"It is important from the stand
point of the individual," stated Dr.
Hedgpeth, "to avoid an illness if he
possibly can, and at the same time,
since influenza is such a contagious
disease, he has a responsibility to his
fellow students in trying to avoid an
outbreak of influenza."
