RALEIGH, Sept. 29 "For some strange reason the State
has done little for student activities at Chapel Hill," said Pres
ident Gordon Gray here this morning in presenting the 1953-54
budset requirements of the Consolidated University.

He recommended for the Uni
versity at Chapel Hill a $1,200,000
allocation for a student union
building, pointing out that up to
now facilities for student activi

from private funds and are ser
iously insufficient because of in
creases in enrollment since their
An auditorium-armory capable
of accommodating the entire stu

$1,500,000. This building would
provide an assembly hall for the

Gray complained with special
vigor about the seats in Memo
rial Hall. "Those seats are the
same ones which were used in the
first building to occupy that site.
They are now about 67 years
old." Forty-six thousand, one
hundred dollars has been recom
mended for providing new seats
for this auditorium.
The budget request submitted
today will be studied in detail by
the Commission. This group will
make any changes in the recom
mendations which seem necessary
and will present the revised re
quest or the total request to the
General Assembly in January.
Should the projected budget
pass the Advisory Budget Com
mission and the General Assembly
construction of the various build
ings still would probably not get
under way until July 1, 1953, the
beginning of the next fiscal year.
Chief items regarding perman
ent improvements at Woman's
College were an art building,
$950,000; General College class
room building, $750,000; addition
to the music building, $478,000,
and a new dormitory, $500,000.
Another item for WC was
termed "security measures in
Market St. Woods Area, $60,000."
This would include moving the
main campus entrance to Mar

woods with some type of growing

College campus an integrity which

Advisory Budget Commission,'
'They Got Oil
As spokesman for yesterday's
budget request before the Ad
visory Budget Commission in
Raleigh, President Gordon Gray
was obliged to say a few words
about his own salary.
Upon the aCvlse of a Trustee
committee, Gray pointed out to
the commission that he was
offered a salary, of $17,500 to be
come president of the consoli
dated University. His present
salary is $12,360. This was men
tioned along with a request
for general increases in the sala
riesof top-level administrators
in the University.
- In the course of his explana
tion Gray pointed out that Dr.
Logan Wilson, vice-president of
the University, will receive a
salary higher than any men
tioned in yesterday's meeting
when he becomes president of
the University of Texas.
Gov. W. Kerr Scott was heard
to say, "They got oil in Texas."
The Carolina Club will reopen
tonight after a $1,500 fire closed
its doors last Wednesday morning.
Don Forbes, co-owner, pointed
out yesterday afternoon that the
Chapel Hill Fire Department is
not permitted to leave the city
limits, so the owners, along with
host of helpful neighbors,
hooked up a garden hose and ex
tinguished the blaze, but not be

Forbes said 300 fee of ceiling

Good Book's Gonna Be Better
New Version Of Bible Will Say
Things So All Con Understand

The lowdown on the new edi
tion was heard yesterday from
Dr. Bernard Boyd, 'head of the
Religion Department here. He
spoke to a ? YWCA Cabinet
The most striking change in
the new edition, which goes on
sale today, is that it largely
is in poetry, Dr. Boyd said. He
said the reason for this is that
"we become poetic in the en
deavor to express feelings and
truths which are so deep as to
be nearly unexpressible.
"I become poetic when I
talk of Jesus because it is the
strongest thing I know1. Just so
for a Jeremiah or a Luke. They
were talking about eternal
truths which refuse the limi
tations of mere prose."
Dr. Boyd's talk included a
discussion and evaluation of
the new Bible. He blamed the
dullness of present day Bible
study partly on professors, part
ly on students for not being able
to transfer a written page into
a living experience, and partly
on the editors of our present
Bible who have made pages too
thin, printing too small, and
form too unintelligible for clear

new Bible have been made only
to clarify ambiguous statements.

"It says things in the kind of
words you and I hear everyday,"
Dr. Boyd opened his lecture
by urging "practicing the pre
cedence of God" despite the
multiplicity of college interests.
He said other interests should
not be disregarded but that re
ligion should be primaryl He al
so suggested the beginning of a
program of regular Bible read
ing, which would be infinitely
easier with the new version.
"There are only three reli
gious alternatives for the mo

are Buddhism, Mohammeda
nism, and Christianity."
He went on to explain that
Christianity was the only loci

the other two religions do not
