Gray Says Tests Not Certain Armstrong Consuls On Student Aetfon If Plan Approved . President Gordon Gray assert ed yesterday that the . draft ex emption exams proposed by the National Selective Service are still an uncertainty and that there is no need to "get excited about the tests at present.',' "Since the situation changes from veek to week, I cannot make any suggestions at his time7' he said. At the same time Director of Admissions Roy Armstrong gave advice to students on the proper action to take should the tests be instituted. A reserve Army Major and a member of the State Selective Service system, Armstrong said, "Every student who is registered and is under 26 should take the test if it is given." He pointed out that it was not the type of exam that requires preparation. If Congress approves the pro gram which, was proposed oy National Selective Service offi cials, students would be deferred from service on a high score basis. However, Armstrong explained that a student's deferment may depend not only on the test score and his class standing but also on the local board's disgression. Debate "in Congress has pointed toward a killing of the proposal. Educational leaders and others have claimed that the plan would be unfair to men who could not pay their way through school and that the plan might tend to de velop an intellectual aristocracy. Others have viewed the pro posal as a concrete way of train ing qualified men who would be more valuable to the services in the future. Chest Booth To Be Placed In V Lobby A booth will be set up in the lobby of the "Y" this morning and tomorrow lo collect pledges made during the Campus Chest drive, Bob Payne, chairman of the drive, announced yesterday. Fifty per cent of the $2,900 collected in the drive is in pledges, said Payne, and the booth will enable students to pay the $1,400 now outstanding. The $2,900 total for this year's drive falls short of the $4,400 col lected last year. Faculty response was also less than last year, ac cording to Payne, as faculty" so licitations were made near the close of the winter quarter. Draft Dr. Henderson Replies To Charge That HeTook A Second Helping By Archibald Henderson My attention has been called (and I mean "called" by letter, telephone, and word of mouth!) to a story sent out by Bob Madry, Director of the University News Bureau, to the press on April 1 (readers will please note the significance of the date!) about my .taking two, alleged helpings of a chocolate roll. The story quoted my good friend, Max Steinhardt, New York attorney, as saying that I had violated one of my own rules for keeDine- fit and at normal weight by taking this second help ing when I . was his dinner guest. I was shocked and mortified by the grave errors in this story. In the first place, I repudiate the charge that I am now in my 74th year.

F rat Average Improves; Sororities Still In Lead The all-fraternity scholastic average for winter quarter is slightly better than that of the all-men's, according to a re-, lease yesterday by Ray Jef-. feries, assistant to the Dean of Men. The sororities still continue to outshine the men academic ally by a wide margin, how ever. The sororities lead the cam pus with a 2.3552 average. The contest is between the all-fraternity and all-men averages with 2.8893 and 2.8901 scores respectively. . The point values are com puted on the basis: A-l, B-2, ' D-4, and F-6.

The original vehicle of 1916 vintage occupies an honored place on the second floor of Strowd Motor Company and Mr. Strowd generously offered to lend it in tact for the French comedy. The first act takes place in an an cient vehicle moving along a highway at the dizzy speed of 15 miles per hour. ' But difficulties were encounter ed when the stage door of the theater, measured and remeasur ed, proved to be a few inches too narrow to allow the fire truck's passage. Nothing remained but for Walter Creech, director of the play, to construct an automobile that would pass through the door. For the past week the Play maker cast has been occupied with the reconstruction of the truck, which so far features the hood of a 1916 fire truck and the horn of a 1914 Ford. 1877. Let the reader make his own j calculation and draw his own con clusion! One does not have to be a mathematician to make such a simple computation. In the second place, the allega tion of my . good friend, Stein hardt, is like the charges of so many lawyers: it is the truth, but cannot qualify as the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Remember the old saw: "Sup pressio veri, suggestio falsi." That now famous chocolate roll, in tne snape or a z,eppeiin or dirigible balloon, was handed to me first. I was talking away at a two-forty gait; and without pay ing any particular attention, took one slice which was off the tip end. When I came to eat it, I noticed that it was about the size Attorney 2639, and the Chi Omegas are second. The lowest sorority had a higher average than the high est fraternity. Pi Lambda Phi is tops academically among the fraternities with a 2.4305 aver age, but is beat by Delta Delta Delta sorority with a 2.4541 average. Twelve fraternities are above the all-men's average. This leaves only 11 below and gives them a better than .500 overall average. ' Second among the fraterni ties is Delta Psi with a 2.5207 average. ' Zeta Beta Tau is third with a 2.5533, and Tau Epsilon Pi fourth with a 2.5581 average. the 1950-51 Social Science Lecture Series here tonight and tomorrow.

Pines Restaurant Has New Manager Contrary to a story which ap peared in The Daily Tar Heel last week, Charles D. Frye is now managing the Pines restaurant on the Raleigh Road. The establish ment is owned by Frank Daven port of Chapel Hill, who employs Frye as manager. of the mythical silver dollar, which used to be in active circu lation in my boyhood. This tiny slice was so small that I ate it at one bite. ! It proved so delightful that I asked Mrs. Steinhardt if I might not have one more slice, which by this time was full size, coming off the mid-section of the roll. As two such mid-slices make a nor mal helping, I calculate, using the well known formula for a right cylinder, that I received in all less than three-fourths of a helping! N This was verified shortly after wards when, upon weighing on extremely accurate scales, I found, to my great delight, that I had not gained, but actually lost one-hundredth of an ounce in weight. - General; Ken Barton was selected orien tation chairman, Erline Griffin was named to replace Julian Ma son as Elections Board chairman, and Ken Pcnegar was appointed chairman of the Audit Board.
