The books were drawn from a

Oppenheimer's statement is as fol

Carolina to be intrusted with the
privileges of self-government. Such
rules that are made are made by
the fraternities' representatives, and
not by the University; hence, they
are tiie fraternities rules, not the

Such veterans could, under ap
plication to and subsequent ap
proval of the Dept. of Physical
Education, be excused from all
physical education courses.
The change approved by Dean
Johnson and the General College
Administrative Board grew out
of a petition submitted to General
, College authorities last spring.
! The petition asked that physical
education requirements for vet
erans be placed on a "voluntary'
; basis, and resulted in following
changes in the administration's re
quirements: ! 1. Any veteran who feels that
he has a valid reason for not tak
ing physical education may submit
a request for exemption to the
Dept. of Physical Education.
i 2. Valid reasons will include
j such things as excessive age and

Roy Armstrong, director of ad

Daily Tar Heel to issue a statement
as to why the freshman enrollment
j at the University has declined,
i Armstrong said that while the de
crease in the General College can
not be attributed to one or two ma
jor factors, it could partially be ex
plained bv the increase in the cost
j of living, increase of interest in
i technicological training and the eli- j
gibility rules. !
Concerning the higher cost of liv
ing. Armstrong said that a partial '
failure of tobacco crops in :he east- !

have accounted for the absence of
some students who might otherwise
be here. The statistical report in
