The Carolina male population may be on-' the decline due to the draft, but the Army's K-9 Corps hasn't done a thing to effect the local dog colony. Chapel Hill's dogs are a legend throughout the stater and for the first time since the days of Dan . The Dog things are beginning to look up from the local canine point of view. It used to be that dogs , were as much a part of the Y Court as the coffee and South Bulding steps. And nearly as many pupa as people gathered there to so cialize. Dan, of course, is the embodi ment of Carolina dig tradition. His official title was Bowler Boy's Danny, but folks everywhere knew him as just Dan The Dog. When . the venerable Dan was king, he held the undisputed right to attend any and all University classes and sporting events. He even made football trips with Tar Heel fans, and once got left be hind. In those days dogs rated just as much attention as professors and football players. It wasn't a football game unless play was halted at least once to run a stray dog from the field. And it was rumored that tho dogs were train ed to interrupt just wrhen Car olina most needed the rest. Dan died in the summer of 1948 and students and alumni across the" state mourned his pas?lng. Just after that the administration put a ban on Chapel Hill dogs, indignant students paraded through town in protest and the officials finally compromised with the dog-lovers. But local canines seemed to lose heart with the loss of Dan and for the better part of two Shears Chapel Hill's - jiog family wasn't too much in evidence. Dan'ssuccessors weren't long in taking up the cry to regain their lost dignity, however. Two years ago there was Cap, a thorough bred, muscle-bound Boxer who hated coeds almost as much as W&AA Admits First Negro To College Special to The Daily Tar Heel WILLIAMSBURG, May 2 The College of William and Mary has joined -other Southern schools in admitting Negro "students to its graduate schools, it was an nounced yesterday by college of ficials. Hulton L. Willis, an instruc tor in a Norfolk public school and a 1949 graduate of Virgiina State College for Negroes, is the first of his race to be accepted under a policy adopted by the William and Mary board to admit quali fied. Negroes for graduate work not offered at a state-supported school for Negroes. This policy was adopted after a federal court ordered the Univer sity of Virginia to admit Negroes to its law school. Willis, a native of Pittsburgh and a World War II veteran, will do graduate work in physical ed ucation at W & M the nation's second oldest college. Pay Up All students who have not paid up their pledges to the Campus Chest must do so today. A booth will be set up in the Y Court to accept all payments. Fifty percent of the pledges still remam to be paid and Chest Chairman Bob Payne said yes terday that students who had pledged money and not paid it were "seriously defeating the effort to get the funds tabulated and distributed to the various organizations. he did cats. Brownie was another favorite. She 'was strictly a Monogram sweater girl and went for the football players especially All American End Art Weiner. Then there was Radar, who many claim was the only dog in Carolina history able to catch a squirrel. His counter can be presently found in the lumbering Irish Setter who spends half his time wasting his lungs on tree bound sauirrels and the other half 4 U ft Ik 1r i ' TV l si X Hi 'J i&v iij jjiHz r 1 I 4k?

Pete is the current favorite in fraternity circles. He's a full blooded Dalmatian and the young est, and only four-legged, pledge of the Phi Gam fraternity. There are dozens of other dogs now roaming the campus. They all have their favorites among the students and it's getting tobe so that a f reshman doesn't become a part of campus life until he's been chosen as a friend by one of the canine populace.
