But music is such big bus iness today, those in the business have to be made of stern stuff to be -able to stand up under the grind which includes not only, re hearsals, but appearances in'con cert,: opera, radio, television and the movies, with constant travel ing a part of the routine. Eugene Conley, tenor, who will appear here Thursday night at 8 o'clock for the first Student En tertainment Committee Program is a fine example of a young American singer who keep s in training for his job. Back home in Lynn, Mass, he had a normal American boyhood. He was a Boy ScoUt, he excelled in athletics, es pecially in sprinting, the broad i i it . ' .i ,i i ii n jump, Daseoan ana DasKeioan, and was very mechanically in clined. Like most American kids, he had a "green thumb" with machinery and even the most balky mechanism would run after he worked on it. In addition to his vocal exercis es, Gene Conley has. made physi cal exercises a part of his daily .program. When at home in New York, he attends gym regularly. He makes a specialty of 'exercises weight-lifting, chinning, a n d tossing a medicine ball around which will give him chest devel opment. The ability of an artist to hold a long note or sing a long, com plicated phrase is dependent upon his breath control which, in turn, depends upon his chest expan vivatr mazes Class Plans Senior Class organizational plans started off this week with a bang, according to Archie Myatt, president. "We-have, some novel ideas as well as constructive ones in mind,, and this year should, be a high ly successful one for the Senior Class," he said. i ' The class officers . have been meeting since the f irstof the year, he continued, to make organiza tional plans. The specific committees have been decided -upon, but appoint ments have not been fully made. The central committee will be the planning boarU and will be com posed of approximately 25 boys and girls. The other committees, he said, will be the Senior Complaint Boar d. the Alumni Committee, the Social Committee, , the Finance Committee, and the - Publicity Committee. , ; V ' . Myatt put out the call to all seniors who are interested in serv ing on any of these committees." Anyone ; wishing to 'do so should either!

Europe he made his debut at the Metropoli tan t Opera in January of 1950 -feels that opera requires not only vocal but acting ability as well, and the agility he has acquired through exercising and having a well-disciplined body, has helped f him in taking stage directions for his movements onstage. ea uty Contest raws The names of 58 prospective Yack queens have, been sub-' emitted by 29 campus organiza tions, Sue Lindsey, editor, an nounced yesterday. s: The 58 contestants will be judged in Memorial Hall, No vember 1 5 at 8 o'clock by four experienced Chapel Hill men.

The bill, to be introduced by Toby Selby, charges that closed trials lead to distrust and disre spect for the . student courts and can lead to irresponsibility on the part of the court. , Open trials, according .to the billj would increase responsibili , : ty, trust and respect on the part of the court and the students. It is further stated that the prevention of Honor - and Cam pus Code offenses is the funda- mental objective of the Universi ty court system and the . present closed court system is not effc- tive as a preventive court Vhus . failing in its fundamental bbjec- , tive." 5 . ; Various members of the honor . councils have been invited to speak as individuals upqr. the . controversial bill.
