THURSDAY, APRIL 12 1951 NUMBER 120 X r?rn v Ssr Xr XZ nMLi Coed S $3 Per Year Tax Charges Are Voted Out 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 ed yesterday. 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 year. 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 Independents Board. 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 52 fiscal year with a $776.52 sur plus.

Tropic Fruit Art Showing On Weekend Lee Adams, nationally recog nized botanical artist, will pre sent an exhibition of about 50 water color paintings of tropical fruits in the Morehead Building art galleries Saturday through Tuesday. The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday, 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Sunday, and 2 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. Adams, a University of North Carolina alumnus, completed many of his scientifically accu rate paintings under the guidance of Dr. David Eirchild, well known botanist. He has just re cently returned from a trip through the Caribbean area where he studied subjects for his painU ings, which have been compared to the works of Audobon for their beauty and accuracy. A resident of Mandarin, Fla., Adams attended" the University from 1941 to 1944 and completed his education ' at Rollins College in Florida. His major field of study was botany and while a student here professors recogniz ed his ability to sketch accurately and encouraged him to continue to develop his artistic talent. He has gone to great lengths to present an accurate picture of natural tropical fruits in his paintings, often ingeniously in cluding a cut-away portion of the fruit, showing its interior flesh and seed. Many of his pic tures include tropical birds, n . isnesspeeig stein, Look Magazine's chief photographer; Arthur Sasse, In ternational News Photos' award winning cameraman; Alfred Cro well, head of the Department of Journalism and Public Relations of the University of Maryland; Strobo Research Engineer Ed Farber, and J.

Naval Academy at Annapolis and at much less cost than would be involved in the establishment of another Naval Academy, accord ing the Captain J. Elliot Cooper (USN), Commander of the Uni versity NROTC. 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 regulars in the NROTC arc selected on the basis of examin ations and aptitude tests on a state-quota basis, and that those selected are given tuition, books, equipment, uniforms and $50 a month for the four-year period in (See NAVY, page 3.) shock, which has caused his veins to contract. The nurse, Lt. Margaret Feil of San Francisco, can't get the needle in a vein. She probes and probes, and, the wounded man jumps and rolls his head at each probe. A medic pulls off one of the soldier's boots, and he writhes in pain for he has a motar wound in the leg. A doctor takes the blood giving needle from the nurse and tries to get it in a vein lower in the arm, but it's no use. They have been working on the soldier's left arm. His right arm is a stump, blown off below the elbow. It is wrapped in a huge rolled white bandage, soaked with blood. , Fee tators will gather at the site of the-new hospital to witness the cornerstone-laying for the in stitution which the University fought so long to get. Governor Kerr Scott, Consoli dated University President Gor don Gray, and University Chan cellor Robert B. House will take part in the proceedings. Short talks will be made by Governor Scott; William B. Umstead; Kay Kyser, one of the leaders of North Carolina's good health movement; Dr. Paul Whitaker, Kinston physician representing the state's physicians; and Major L. P. McLendon, chairman of the Trustees' committee on the Med ical School. The cornerstone will be laid in accordance with Masonic rites, with North Carolina's , Grand Master of Masons, Dr. Wallace E. Caldwell of the History De partment, in command. The an nual State Communicarion of the Masons will be in session at the time of the cornerstone laying. Notables to be present will be Collier ; Cobb, . Jr., chairman of the Trustees' building committee; Dr. Reece Berryhill, dean of the Medical School; Dr. Henry T. Clark, Jr., administrator of the Division of Health Affairs; Dr. Robert R. Cadmus, director of the hospital; Dr. Edward G. Mc Gavran, dean of the School of Public Health; Dr. John C. Brauer, dean of the School of Dentistry; Miss Elizabeth Kemblc, dean of the School of Nursing, and E. A. Bretch, dean of the School of Pharmacy. 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 level of the. bottle begins to sink very slowly. The soldier has lost conscious ness. As I leave he is lying still, his head fallen to one side, the arm stump hanging down over the cot . edge. He probably will live because someone; has given the blood to keep' him alive. Mclntyre Elected; Allston Runs Third; Penegar Concedes UP presidential candidate Dick Penegar conceded at 12:32 this morning when final unofficial returns Bhowed he had 721 votes to 890 for Henry Bowers (SP) and 862 for independent candidate Ben James. The latter two will be in next week's runoff. A recount of votes from Town Men's District I at 1 o'clock this morning provided complete but unofficial re sults showing that both party candidates were knocked out of the Daily Tar Heel editorship race, leaving independents Glenn Harden with 925 and Don Maynard with 561 in next week's runoff. Frank Allston (UP), who received 512. de manded a complete recount. In the race for secretary-treasurer. Jim Mclntyre (SP) won with 1.200 votes to 1.112 for Allen Tate (UP). The count was complete but unofficial. By Chuck Hauser t As ballot-counting neared a close at 12:15 this morning in one of the closest elections in campus history, the story was still to be told on who would face whom in the runoffs. The only major candidate sure of a runoff berth was Glenn Hard en, independent candidate for editor of The Daily Tar Heel, who taught the professional campus politicians never to. underestimate the power of a woman. The presidential race was still wide open, with approxi mately 2,500 ballots counted. Student Party candidate Henry 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) 415, and Bruce Melton (independent) 41. In the .race for the post of secretary-treasurer of the student body, "Jim Mclntyre (SP) was leading Allen Tate (UP) by 1187 Pink Eye Macs Firing Livens Talk On Elections By Rolfe Neill General Mac-Arthur's firing wasn't the only topic of conver sation among the dozens of class cutting students sprawled over South Building's steps or lolling around the Y Court yesterday morning. It was election day and nothing could crowd out the talk of pol itics. It was an election day unusual in many respects unusual in that the skies were sunny and the day warm and pleasant. Then too, politicians, both amateur and professional, were not making any bets as to who would win what major office. It was just that wide open. It was the usual election day in that several humorous inci dents occurred. . Immaculate, wavy-haired Ben James strolled through the Y's double doors yesterday morning about 9:35 with a cup of coffee (See POLITICS, page 3) Rooms Must Be Reserved James E. Wadsworth, Univer sity housing officer, said yester day students desiring dormitory j rooms for the summer and fall terms must make their deposits with the University Cashier be fore May 1. Students may pick up their option to reserve rooms Mr the terms at any time between now and May 1, Wadsworth said, but added that a room reserved for the summer does not entitle the occupant to that space in the fall. If deposit is not made, no room will be reserved, he said. This will be the first time in several years the capacity of the rooms are reduced. I to 1094. The most amazing thing about the election was the heavy voty coed Harden got in the nun's dormitory districts. Not women haters, but usually skep1ic about a woman's executive abil ity, the residents of the quad:; turned out in full force to givr; her a heavy margin in the dorms. Independent presidential can didate James also did well in the men's dorm district, cutting, heavily, into Bowers' SP bloc. In Dorm Men's District I, Bowers Penegar was more than a hun dred votes behind. The dorm women .seemed to prefer Bowers, with PencRar and James following in that order. In town, the coeds voted in the same pattern. In at least one race, a contest ing r the election seemed cer tain. On the senior class ballot, both candidates running for class treasurer were identified with UP backing beside their names. Allan Donald deserved the credit, but Clay Johnson was nominated by the SP. Elections Board Chairman Jul ian Mason used more than fi'J counters, working in the three upstairs Roland Parker lounges of Graham Memorial. In addition, a score of aides helped distribute big manila envelopes filled with tabulated returns in the student government office. At 10:30 the interest in Graham Memorial switched from the bin blackboard on the first floor where Legislator Jim Lamm was posting returns to the radio in the main lounge and to the tele vision set in the Horace Williams Thomas Wolfe lounge. Ballot counters even came from upstairs to hear President Truman speak. Commissioned Donald E. Weant. son of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Weant of College Park. Ga., has been commission ed as an Ensign. Captain J. E. Cooper. professor of naval science in the NROTC unit, an nounced yesterday. Ensign Weant. a transfer from Emory University.
