The Carolina "mass exodus" of

according to a survey made pub
lic yesterday .
Initiated to determine just what
students do with their weekend
time, the exhaustive survey was
completed and given to the Ex
ecutive Committee of the Board
of : Trustees at its meeting this
week. One of the reasons given
by the Executive Committee
member who proposed Saturday
classes was to stop the "mass
exodus" o nthe weekend..
The report was conducted in
the house of Delta Kappa Epsilon
and Phi Delta Theta fraternities,
Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, and
Alderman, Spencer, Old East and
"Going home to rest" was given
by both coeds and men as the
"most important" single reason
for leaving Chapel Hill. Men
students rated "attending a foot
ball game" highest on the list
(See TRUSTEES, page 6)
Taxicab fares in Chapel Hill
will go up from 35 to 45 cents
effective June 1.
And a blanket SO-cent fare has
