Y " xf ft 1951 United moo Summer Term To Be Quarter For Freshman Many Applications Received By UNC For June Entrance Freshmen entering the Univer sity this June will work through the summer on a quarterly basis, Roy -Armstrong, Director of Ad missions, announced yesterday. The new students will not di vide the summer into two ses sions, but will start in June and metriculate through August as first quarter freshmen, he added. The full-quarter summer does not apply to present undergraduates, however, Armsrtong pointed out. "Applications are coming in very well in face of the present uncertainty facing most high school seniors," he said. "Most of the entering freshmen have Switched their " -entrance dates from September to June to take advantage of the summer quarter work offered by the University." Armstrong advised applicants to enter in June if they were in tending to become medical or dental students. "The one summer session en ables a student to save one calen dar year to enter the medical schools, entering in September, 1953. But if a student does not take advantage of the summer school work, he would have to wait until September, 1954," he continued. In other news concerning en tering freshmen, Armstrong an nounced that the "segregation policy" of placing entering men in separate freshmen dorms will be discontinued. the Legislature tomorrow night. The bill had been recommitted by a stymied Legislature last Thursday after 90 minutes of de bate, in what some solons termed a sly poimcai move. The Committee had once ap proved the bill unanimously. In its second hearing on that measure, the Committee debated for over an hour, heard members of both political parties vent their feelings and then overwhelming ly defeated two amendments pro posed by Chairman Jack Owen, leaving the proposed law just as it had entered committee. It was a 7-3 vote this time, how ever, to present the bill as it read to the Legislature. At its last sitting, the Commit tee had made two major changes, both deletions, on the original bill as introduced by SP Floorleader Bill Prince. Owen's first amendment would have changed the membership of the non-council portion of the board to "four students, not mem bers of any council, one male stu dent and one coed to be selected from each party."

NUMBER 99 ; -k k k Budget Defict Causes Change In Publication Second Time DTH Has Been Slashed Within 2 Months - Saturday editions .of The Daily Tar Heel have tem porarily been suspended by the Publications Board be cause of an impending $2,500 budget deficit brought on by decreased enrollment, Board Chairman Zane Robbins an nounced yesterday. The cut, which reduces the "daily" newspaper to four days a week, is effective immediately. Robbins said the cut was ap proved at a meeting of the Board last Friday in Graham Memorial. It marks the second time within a two-month period that the financial body has been forced to cut the frequency of publication of the official student newspaper. The printing cut will realize some $1,500 savings, but a por tion of this cut will be offset by a small loss in advertising. Several other money saving measures are being considered by the Board, since an additional $1,500 savings will have to be ef fected or another $1,500 in in come added, according to Rob bins. Robbins following the cut: yesterday statement Issued the concerning "It is with sincere regret that the 'meat' of The Daily Tar Heel was cut by the Publications Board. I believe I speak for every member of the Board when I say this. We certainly have no de sire to see a college newspaper that has been taking steady strides forward suddenly go into a tailspin in the middle of a year. "In the fact of the current fi nancial crisis, however, we were left without an alternative in this matter. We could have dipped into our rapidly-shrinking surplus to stave off the cut for a short while, but the axe had to fall sooner or later and we think the time for action is now. "We have prepared a budget for next year that will allow us to resume publication of The Daily Tar Heel on a near-normal basis. If that budget passes the Budget Committee and the Student Leg islature without alteration, I can assure you The Daily Tar Heel will resume its place among the leading college dailies in the United States." In other action, the Board ap proved and passed on to the Bud get Committee the budgets for 1951-52 for The Daily Tar Heel, the Yackety Yack and Tarnation. Billy Er Friend LOS ANGELES.
