This is also a new policy of the Bed Cross. All the contributions ear marked for the World Student Service Fund will be added to the contributions of the other branches of the Consolidated University and sent to the Uni versity of Indonesia. The total fund from the three branches will be sent in honor of 'Frank P. Graham, UN mediator to Indonesia several years ago. Legislature Not Sure Of Efficiency legislators got tangled up on the question of whether members were "dead wood" or not, and fin ally decided some members were by voting 24-19 to whittle down the present number of seats from 5 Oto 35. The bill will be present ed to students in spring elections in Constitutional amendment form. The move was made to become "more efficient" but in another instance, the solons figured they could be just as efficient without creating five at-large seats (they voted down such a proposal 27-17). Believing that a combined com position - redisricting bill was too much of a mouthful, the ways and means committee had halved a bill introduced by David Ker ley last week. Kerley reintroduc ed his redisricting proposal in a separate form, still calling for re apportionment of town districts to let over "1000" unrepresented men vote. The 15-seat cut vote came after over an hour of haggling along party lines and increased; by the presence of Ham' Horton and Sheldon Plager, both University Party men.

"Give Once Serve All is the new slogan for the Campus Chest drive this year," Allen Tate, cnairman, said yesterday. "Chest office will open Monday afternoon in the Y probably and remain open every afternoon until and after the drive," Tate added, which opens on March 4 and ends March 7." Gina Campbell was named to head the faculty solicitations group and Jimmy Grimes, APO president, will lead the town col lection group. IT pa yam FJ jp II LI Ll Vjg U Gun powder exploded in the wrong direction Wednesday night for an Alexander dorm resident as the Interdonnitoiy Court dealt out one of its heaviest decisions suspension of dormitory residence for one quarter to a known user of fire crackers. The crackdown on the cracker-user was the first attempt to halt the continued and illegal use of pyrotechnics on campus. Dick Gamble, court chairman and junior from Summerfield, warned-that the suspension fine will be used again for known vio lators who show "gross inconsid eration" for fellow dorm residents. The strongest fine the court can give is permanent suspension with $376 Given University In Escheats The State of North Carolina recently turned over $376.50 in unclaimed income tax refund money to the escheats fund of the Consolidated University. The money represented un cashed refund checks mailed 1 o 35 persons between July 1, 1943 and June 30, 1945. . v Under the State constitution, most unclaimed monies lying, dormant within the State for five years or more are turned over to the University's escheats fund. The fund, in turn, is used to assist worthy students. Next Spring, according to Chief Auditor H. O. Clark of the State Auditor's office, an other lump sum representing unclaimed refunds for the year from July 1, 1945 to June 30, 1946, probably will be turned over to the escheats fund. nfer court Coeds Eligible To Miss Chapel Hill Contest Chapel HilTs Second Annual Beauty and Personality Pageant to select a representative to the state finals for the Atlantic City Miss America Pageant will be held February 29.

Gamble pointed out that the penalty was nothing unusual for such a case but should prove to serve .as an example to possible future violators. The court decision came on the heels -of an announcement that a special "trouble-shooting" com mittee had been set up by the In terdorm council to find out who the "culprits" are and how to ap prehend them. President Boh Creed appointed Ray Bond, Jim Parker and Roy Corderman to serve with him on the committee at last Monday night's meeting. Residents have complained of the increasing-use of such explos ives as topedo-type firecrackers, "bombs," "dynamite caps," and fuze-type powders. One council member reported that an explos ive has been thrown into his win dow, breaking through the screen and bursting with such force that the window broke into hundreds of splinters. Bits of glass sprayed him on the head, but he was uninjured. Already, the council has re ceived protests on the firecrackers hazard. "I'm moving out," said John Harris, of Grimes dorm ,in a letter to Dean of Student Fred Weaver. "I am sick of dorm life," he added. Other students are reported to have moved, out, since Grimes seems to be particularly affected by the firecrackers. The court has the power to give probations and suspensions for vi olations of dormitory rules. State law prohibits possession or use of firecrackers. Last year, after sev eral cases, the IDC sent out letters advising students to give up the i explosive weapons.
