Kash Davis Says
Action Of Senate
To Be Permanent
The Coed Senate has abol
ished the special $l-per-quar-ter
coed activities tax on Uni
versity women students,
Speaker Kash Davis announc
The tax, refunded as a
special fee for women after the
block fee system was put into
effect in 1946-47, was a hangover
from the old Women's Association
fee charged before the 1946 Con
stitution was ratified.
Actually, the special fee was
retained on coed billing forms
after the block fee was installed
through an error in the Univer
sity cashier's office, but the
money has been appropriated and
spent under the jurisdiction of
the Coed Senate ever since.
The Senate unanimously ap
proved the move to abolish the
fee at its Tuesday night meet
ing. It also unanimously approved
a budcet for the 1951-52 fiscal
Speaker Davis said ' the Senate
meant for the elimination of the
coed fee to be permanent, not
just for the next fiscal year.
The new coed budget was sim
ilar to those of past years, ex
cept for the fact that the list of
women's organizations usually
subsidized by the Senate was cut
to three the Valkyries, the Wom
en's Athletic Association and the
Subsidiary groups eliminated
from the new budget ' are the
Women's Glee Club, the YWCA,
Chi Delta Phi, Pan Hellenic
Council, Kappa Epsilon and the
Town Girls' Association.
The Senate wilf operate on an
estimated surplus of $2,277.52 and
a $95 appropriation from the
Student Legislature. Total ex
penditures for next year are es
timated at . $1,596, which means
the Senate should end the 1951

Addressing the Chapel Hill
Rotary Club at its last meeting,
Captain Cooper described the
NROTC programs throughout the
nation and the unit at the Uni
versity in particular.
A total of 15,400 students are
now enrolled in the various units,
he said. The unit at the Univer
sity is one of only 13 which can
commission officers for the Navy
Supply Corps as well as for the
Navy and Marine Corps.
At present 253 students are en
rolled in the unit here, 126 of
them regulars and 127 under con
tract basis. Thirty-seven of these
should graduate before August.
The unit here was established in
1940, followed by the Navy. Pre
Flight School in 1942 and the
Navy V-12 program in 1943. The
two latter programs were aband
oned at the end of World War II.
Captain Cooper explained that

selected are given tuition, books,

The hospital has been under
construction about a year and. a
half and is expected to be com
pleted at the end of this year. The
exterior of the building is near
its final form, but there is much
yet to be done toward the com
pletion of the interior.
Roadways and parking lots are
to be constructed in the near
future. The formal opening of the
hospital is set for the spring of
1952, barring unforeseen develop
ments. The head surgeon, a major,
eomes over and takes a syringe
needle and begins probing deep
in the man's thigh for a blood
vessel. The guy is conscious, and
the surgeon says "How do you
feel now?" ,
"I don't feel bad at all," the
guy says. He takes a cigarette.
A medic approaches and looks
at the record card tied to the
soldier's clothes and-goes away,
shaking his head. The case is
critical. The important thing is
to get blood into him. The sur
geon has given up probing and
is cutting into one of the big veins
at the ankle. No blood comes out
as he cuts. He thrusts a hollow
metal tube through the incision
and into the vein and attaches
the bottle tube to it. The blood

The soldier has lost conscious

his head fallen to one side, the

live because someone; has given
the blood to keep' him alive.

The presidential race was still wide open, with approxi

Bowers was leading with 882 votes, but independent Ben
James was breathing down his neck with 839, and University
Party nominee Dick Penegar wasn't too far behind with 708.
But the bulk of the uncounted ballots were from the
town men's districts, Penegar's stronghold. Those unknown votes
could also put Frank Allston (UP) in the runoff with Harden for
the editorship. At 12:15, however, Don Maynard, another independent,
was running second with 514, while Allston had 460, Walt Dear (SP)
