Lucas At the source of one of the most con stant and important of the numerous lines around Chapel Hill is Mrs. Mary Maultsby, head Cashier of the Book Exchange. Mrs. Maultsby, who has been exchanging cash for students checks for over two years, is respon sible for ' the service's accounts and fending off student' gripes when the cash runs out.

"r i i MlMhW TOMMY DORSEY UNC Relegates To Take Part In Convention ! National Assembly ; Is Set Next Month Representatives of seven student organizations meeting in the YMCA office yesterday afternoon; voted that the University send delegates to the American Conference of College Stu dents at the University of Chicago, December 28-30. ? Jimmy Wallace, representative of the University to the Prague' Confer ence and a member of the Chicago conference preparatory committee ex plained the background and purposes of the Chicago conference to the group, which met at the request of UVA president Roy Moose, whose of fice received the University's invita tion to send delegates. " ' Called by a committee of represen tatives of national student organiza tions and universities which sent the American delegation to the Prague World Conference of students, the Chicago conference is planned to dis cuss the need for a national student organization in the United States and to establish, if so decided, a prepara tory committee to make plans for such an organization. Lacking representatives of enough campus groups to accurately repre sent the student body, the meeting yesterday called a second meeting of all student organization leaders for 5 o'clock this afternoon in the YWCA office to nominate delegates to the con ference and make financial arrange ments for the trip. : hastened to say it is not an unlimited fund comprising all the cash that the Book-Ex can muster. The checking service is maintained as a separate department of the Book Exchange. There is a fund of $6,000, advanced and maintained by the Uni versity as a separate account, to be used for that purpose. The great prob lem of the service now is the volume of transactions taking place daily. With the present tremendous amount of business it is necessary that checks cashed by the service in the morning be taken to the Bank of Chapel Hill at noon, recashed there in turn, and the tender taken back to the Book-Ex to be exchanged for more checks in the afternoon. . Bankers Hours Force Limit Banking hour force the limitation on the service. Since the bank opens at 9 and closes at 1 o'clock, morning checks must be recashed before closing time,' and afternoon checks must wait until the next morning before they, too, can be cashed. The local bank will not cash checks for other than those who hold accounts with it, thus the burden of cashing falls on the local merchants and the checking service. The checking service, by acting as first indorser of all1 checks, assumes responsibility for them, therefore all losses are sustained by it. Mrs. Maults by explained that all bad checks are deducted from the original fund, and thus limit that much more the work ing amount of the fund. A st gaum Orchestra Leader Will Face Breach of Contract Charges Fulton Claims Entire Band Did Not Appear; Manning to Represent Campus Organization By Sam Williams The Order of the Grail threw a bombshell into the biggest Caro lina "name band" dance week-end since 1942, late Saturday night, suing bandleader Tommy Dorsey for $20,000 on a charge of breach of contract. Handed the summons at 11:40 p.m., scant 20 minutes before his band played their last num- 1 ber together as a group, the famed maestro read portions of the writ to the 4200 dancers assembled in Wool len gymnasium, jovially saying, "I hope I've got $20,000." Dorsey is charged by the Grail with failure to bring his full orchestra here, as provided in an agreement be tween Charlie Vance, acting for the local group, and Dorsey's agent. In addition the Grail will charge that Dorsey played only one and one half hours at the concert instead of two as previously agreed by contract. Manning Acts for Grail The Grail, represented by J ohn Man ning top-flight contract lawyer of Durham, has until December 12 to file its bill of complaint. Within one month of that date the orchestra leader must reply, ordered Superior Court Clerk Edwin Lynch, in Hillsboro. ' Charlie Fulton, Delegata of the Grail, explained - that Dorsey's agent agreed to send he entire orchestra of 36 musicians, 'for the Friday and Saturday dances, and a concert Fri day afternoon; however, only approxi- I mately half of this number appeared. Clarifying the r move, Fulton last night stated, "Suit proceedings against Dorsey were originated last Wednes day, after the Grail received a tele phone call from Dave Jacobs, band business manager, who said that he was not bringing the string section as promised. ' Co-defendants with Dorsey are his agent, the Music Corporation of Amer ica, and the State Amusement Cor poration, operating company for the group. Jacobs Not Concerned Showing little concern over the suit, business manager Jacobs suggested, Hanau Squeezes Out Lanier In Weekly Grid Predictions Carolina gentlemen bounded back from last week's defeat by coed Ann Conrad to completely dominate winning predictions in Graham Memorial's football contest. Winner R. A. Hanau, of 3 Oakwood Drive, nosed" out J. C. Lanier, Jr., of 216 Aycock, by Cashier, Local Banking Hours Are Biggest Problem There is an average of approxi mately $200 from week to week in bad checks alone, for which the service is responsible. And at one time this past summer these worthless checks totaled over $500. These checks are bad, the cashier explained, not in the sense of willful forgeries, but rather are the result of overdrawn accounts, drawn on the wrong bank, lost in tran sit, and so on. Usually, after a varying period of time, the checking service does collect on these and the loss is See BOOK EX, page U H. R. RITCHIE . .

As he read the summons over the public address system, Dorsey wryly "thanked" the six students who were suing him in the name of the Grail, for their "hospitality." Immediately at midnight he left for New York, where he will confer with his attor neys over future plans, before taking a vacation in Rio De Janiero later this week. He stated definitely that the days of the Tommy Dorsey orchestra were finished, as was stated in a national music magazine last week. Around the first of the year he is expected to make a tour of personal appear ances. A new band vill be formed shortly, around a nucleus of the old group, to be led by trumpeter Zig gy Ellman. Relations 'Not Too Good' Relations with Dorsey,' over the entire week-end were "not too good," a Grail spokesman stated Saturday night. An initial payment of $5,000 was made to the band upon signing of the contract several months ago. When it was learned that a lesser number of players were to appear than originally scheduled, a written protest was filed and handed in with the second . $5,000 payment at 10 o'clock Saturday evening. Atr-Friday evening's dance Dorsey publicly asserted, "Some jerk is trying to tell me how to run my band," -when a Grail member request ed he play more slow numbers. How ever, Grail head Fulton emphasized that the suit was begun before the proceedings of the weekend. Q handing in his prediction sheet seven hours- and 10 minutes earlier than Lanier. Each student piled up a .900 average and missed the correct Duke Carolina score by two points, calling it 20-7. Each also failed to call the Winners of the Davidson-Citadel and Harvard-Yale games. No entrant correctly predicted the Duke-Carolina score. Three other students emerged from the -week of low averages with .900 entries. Tom Mullen of 6 Old Fra ternity Row, Bill Flowers of 120 Mal lette Street, and Meade F. Degges of 406 Manley guessed the Davidson Citadel and Auburn-Clemson contests stumpers. Ann Conrad, last week's winner, missed the Carolina-Duke by only one point in averaging .800. Walt Pupa fell one point short of calling his team's correct score, and rated Duke one touchdown.
