FOUR PACES TODAY
en In Service On January 31
May Receive G I Bill
By RUTH DALTON .
Persons now in the service or who go into the service
before Jan. 31 may have a possibility of drawing full educa
tional benefits, according to information received from Col.
F. C. Sh.ephard, veterans' advisor here.
Bills to permit those now
into service through Jan. 31,
iyoo, to continue to accumulate
eligibility for educational benefits
under Public Law 550 were intro
duced on the opening day of Con
gress by Rep. Teague of Texas
and Rogers of Massachusetts.
Teague is chairman of the
House Veterans' Affairs Commit
tee and Mrs. Rogers the ranking
minority member. In a statement
Teague' said he felt the legisla
tion was desirable because hiany
young men in service had been,
and were still being, told by re
cruiting officers that they would
get full credit for the time spent
in service up to two years, for
educational entitlement. ,
: , The President's proclamation
ending accumulation of eligibility
for educational benefits as of Jan.
31, 1955) means that the last vet
eran under Public Law 550,
would under present law, have to
finish his course under the law
by . Jan.' 31, 1963, or eight years
after discharge or release from
active service, whichever is earl
ier. There is some possibility, ac
cording to sources close to the
House Veterans' Affairs Commit
tee, that the committee will give
consideration during this session
to legislation to give educational
benefits to "peacetime" veterans
(that is, to those who enter serv
ice after Jan. 31, 1955), and ex
tending for a period as long as
the Selective Service law provid-1
ing . for induction for two years
compulsory active duty remains
. cn the books.
If such legislation is introduced
it probably would provide that
men in service would accumulate
eligibility for educational benefits
at the rate of only one day for
each day of service, rather than
one and one-half for each day
of service up to 24 months, as
The President's "State of the
Union" message to Congress .con
tained a sentence saying that
"studies will be undertaken to
determine the need for measures
to ease the readjustment to civ
ilian life of men required to en
ter the Armed Services for a
period of two or more years."

House Council Hears
Cases Of Late Coeds
By JACKIE GOODMAN
The majority of the male popu
lation of Carolina's campus does
not seem to be able to under
stand why the coeds here have
to be in their dormitories by
certain hours at night, and prob
ably more of the boys don't have
much of an idea of what hap
pens to their dates when they
are not in the dorms by these
The first thing which a late
returning coed must do (after
banging on screens and calling
under windows to be let in) is
sign a House Offense Slip. On
the slip she is required to put
her name, the date and her of
fense (the number of minutes
she arrived after closing hours
of the dorm).
On the first Monday night aft
er she has committed her of
fense, the guilty coed is brought
before the dormitory's House
Council for appropriate action.
A dormitory's House Council is
comprised of the vice president
of the dorm, who acts as presid
ing officer, two "holdover" mem
bers who are elected in spring
and serve through the next year
and two representatives ' elected
in the fall from each floor in the
The Council, which meets at
11 p.m., usually gathers in one of
the small sitting rooms off of the
living room in the dorms. The
offenders for the week must re
main outside of the Council's
meeting room until they are
summoned by a Council member.
Upon entering the room, the
coed is instructed to sit in a
chair which has been placed in
full view of all of the Council
members. The vice president of
the dorm, who presides over. the
Council, is seated behind one of
the dorm's card tables, while the

thing from bermuda shorts and
boys shirts to 'dressy dresses"
and high heeled shoes, are sit
ting on the sofa and chairs.
The presiding officer first
reads the offense with which the
coed is charged. Then she asks
the coed if she has any statement
to tell to the Council. If she does
not wish to make any statement,
or if the Council finds that her
statement does not warrent that
she be excused from punishment,
the girl is then asked if there is
any reason why she can not take
probation on a certain night or
Probation consists of the
coed returning to her dorm by
eight p.m. and . signing in with
the Council chairman.. She must
remain in the dorm until 5 a.m.
of the following day.
The number of nights which
the coed is placed on probation
depends, on the number of min
utes which she remained outside
of her dorm after its regular
closing hours. The penalty for
remaining out from one to 10
minutes late is one night's pro
bation with an additional night
added for " each addition 10 min
utes of lateness.
After five House Council of
fenses a coed is taken before the
Women's Honor Council for any
subsequent incidences. If a coed
remains outside of her dorm for
one hour or more after its clos
ing hours, she is tried by the
Women's Honor Council.

Rare Johnson Books
In Display At Library
3y UNIVERSITY NEWS BUREAU
Two centuries ago, when North
Carolina was still an English
colony, a book was published in
England that was to become one
jf the -most famous volumes in
he English language.
This was a dictionary compiled
by Dr. Samuel Johnson. At that
ime, 1755, Johnson's Dictionary
jf the English Language was the
nost complete publication of its
iind in existence and remained
the final authority on words for
more than a century.
In observance of the 200th an
niversary of Dr. Johnson's famous
wo volume work, this rare and
valuable set of books is now be
ing displayed in the main lobby
of the University Library. These
books are part of the permanent
collection located in the Library
Rare Book Room and will be on
display for several weeks.
FOUND FINANCIAL BACKERS
Johnson decided to write the
dictionary in 1747 and began to
search for financial backers for
the project. However, the project
was too great a venture for any
one bookseller, and a combina
tion of booksellers undertook to
finance it. Johnson also sought
and received the backing of Lord
phesterfield, then Secretary of
State, who was one of England's
leading patrons of the letters in
his day. '
j The combination of - booksell
ers and Johnson agreed that the
sum' of 1,575 pounds should be re
ceived by Johnson for the work.
Out of this amount, Johnson a
greed to pay for whatever assis
tants he hired.
The writer estimated that with
one or two assistants he could
complete the work in three years.
Johnson actually had to hire six
assistants and spent eight years
on the task.
The method of procedure was
very simple. Johnson first made
out a list of words, partly from
preceding dictionaries and partly
from his own knowledge.
Johnson was a good Latin sch-
olar, but his ignorance of other
1 foreign languages prevented him ;
from producing what today would
be considered a good dictionary.

th's Powerhouse, will close next
However, two centuries ago the I
conception of a dictionary was j
very limited. It was expected to
contain only the words that were
used by authors of that day.
In 1755 Johnson's publication
was considered "epoch making"
since it devoted for the first time
a really skilled intellect to the
study of language and substituted
for the previous rough and ready
method a fine power of discrim
ination. From another point of view the
dictionary is often found inter
esting because of its idiosyncras
ies. Johnson was often exceeding
ly pompous in his writings, and
though most of his definitions are
terse and clear, he occasionally
slips into his usual fault..
SHOWED HIS PREJUDICES
While writing his dictionary
Johnson thought little of any per
sons who would accept a pension
from the government. He defined
a pension as, "pay given to a
state hireling for treason against
his country." It is interesting in
view of this to note that Johnson
accepted a yearly pension of 300
pounds before his death.
His hatred of the Whigs is
shown in his terming the excise
tax, a favorite resource of the '
Whigs, a "hateful tax."
As for himself, Johnson term-'
ed a lexicographer "a writer of j
dictionaries; a harmless drudge." j
Johnson held the Scotch people j
in great contempt and showed !
this "in his definition of oats when!
he wrote, "Oats a grain which
in England is generally given to
horses, but in Scotland supports
To this definition it is said
that a Scotchman replied, "Eng
land is known for its horses and
for its people."

The ballot was secret so that no

so that a true representative ex
